    YOU IDIOTS!!!! Malagor isn't the fourth character in Kirby's Return to Dreamland! Waddle Dee is! And why is your "Choose your platforms" thing organized so incorrectly?!

    I'd be very happy if Chrom was included. Same for Birdo. I think Luigi needs an overhaul now since he plays too similar to Mario - perhaps using his ghost vacuum? I also hope that Ganondorf doesn't get cut after not being in any recent games. He's my all time favourite character since Melee.

    ...Floating Henry made me start laughing and I just couldn't stop.... are you trying to kill me Takeshi!? I know it's you!!

    Also as for new characters I say there's a pretty good chance that we'll get Matthew from Golden Sun: Dark Dawn as he can have sword, psynergy, and djinn attacks as well as his final smash being a summoning. Dark Dawn's end literally said "Hey this is only half of you journey, there will definitely be a sequel" so it makes perfect sense that they put Matthew the star of the DS game and future star of the inevitable 3DS sequel in. It's also been almost 3 years since Dark Dawn so I can see the next one coming out winter 2014 making the timing even more perfect with Much less likely, but I'd really like Neku from TWEWY to be in the game... that was only a DS that came out several years ago and it was also from Square Enix, but still I can dream.

    LOL. I wish I could claim that but it was done by our Producer extraordinaire Thomas Darnell. I did tell him to move Henry around more though so I'm at least very minimally responsible. :-)

    I want to know if any Sega characters will be in the game? I mean I kept hoping any characters from Skies of Arcadia would appear. Sega renewed the license.
  • masterjoe123 - August 1, 2013 7:52 p.m.

    You guys should talk about what items you think will be cut and what kinds of new ones will be added.
  • J-Fid - August 1, 2013 7:45 p.m.

    In my opinion, characters who are known more for being in Smash Bros. than in their actual games aren't going anywhere anytime soon. Marth is on that list, as are Ness, Ice Climbers, Mr. G&W, etc... Also, soft-clone? There's an actual term for characters with similar move sets, but are not clones. They're called semi-clones. Who do I want added? Well, there's almost no chance of this (especially now that there is no story mode), but I want to see an original character created just for Smash Bros. Oh, and it should be a villain, maybe it could be a boss in another 1 player mode.
  • shawksta - August 1, 2013 7:25 p.m.

    Magalor would be cool. God damn it man, he pulled a Marx on us in Return to Dreamland, but it was ALL THE WAY in the end, it HURT man, i loved the guy.
  • DragonLord23 - August 1, 2013 6:10 p.m.

    Can you guys talk about changes coming to existing characters? Do you think Luigi will have a vacuum attack like Marion had a water jet attack in Brawl.
  • ncurry2 - August 1, 2013 5:26 p.m.

    Man I love these videos. Whoever does the editing deserves mad props, I'm always chuckling at the random effects and cuts. Keep it up!
  • SpadesSlick - August 1, 2013 4:14 p.m.

    What would be really cool is if you could import your avatar from Fire Emblem and use that. I know it's extremely unlikely but damn that would be awesome.
  • shawksta - August 1, 2013 3:52 p.m.

    Henry is cured! (Hopefully!) Don't be absent on Podcast!
  • shawksta - August 1, 2013 3:51 p.m.

    I won a $20 bet that Diddy Kong would be in Brawl. Its gonna be hard but I want K.rool in the game, and out of the Nintendo Eshop Ip's Dillon seems the best choice, he's awesome. Also Mewthree would be better off as a Final Smash form for Mewtwo but I don't mind him being his own character.
  • slimjim441 - August 2, 2013 12:01 a.m.

    K.Rool will never make it. With Retro's obvious abandonment of almost every contribution Rare gave to DK, Rool's return is nothing but a pipe dream. Nevertheless, he could have but one helluva heavy weight. I bet his final smash would have been a giant Croc robot that springs out of the background and you'd use the analogs to move giant claws to smash people like Sigma from Mega Man X. Or something like that.

    "With Retro's obvious abandonment of almost every contribution Rare gave to DK, Rool's return is nothing but a pipe dream." I know what you mean, but making new villains doesnt = "almost every contribution"
  • slimjim441 - August 2, 2013 8:18 a.m.

    Still, Retro has dropped any characters and features from Rare's installments with reason, and I don't see them returning, even for Smash. Call it a pipe dream again, but if Retro is planning on making the DKCR series a trilogy, we can only hope 3 will see the return of Captain K. Rool and his kremling crew. Here's hoping, right?
