Nintendo E3 2013 Wii U + 3DS: First Super Smash Brothers trailer + images

I have to warn you right now, we're spoiling two new playable fighters, so if you want to come into the new Smash Brothers totally clean well... good luck with that! It appears that the Wii U version is going with a style closer to previous Smash Brothers games (but in glorious HD), while the 3DS version is shooting for a more cell-shaded style?

New to the roster are "Villager" from Animal Crossing and Mega Man from, well, Mega Man!!! Oh man. I can already tell you that the second one is going to be one of my main fighters.

Both Smash Brothers games are due in 2014.

Check out the trailer below and stay tuned for more details!

I'm just trying to follow your logic.

@Jargon Ah. In the post that you referenced, I was simply explaining to Zero that the examples he picked were put in to raise awareness for an upcoming game.

Ok, well I think Ice Climbers supports Zero's point well. They're clearly not promoting anything, they're there simply for nostalgia's sake. And, generally speaking, Simon Belmont evokes much more nostalgia than the Ice Climbers, so his inclusion would be consistent with that, not to mention the many other things that are included for nostalgia's sake that aren't characters.

@Jargon I don't think they fill too many slots with those types of characters, though, and I don't think Nintendo are nostalgic about third-party games. And how does Sakurai feel about Simon? Character choices are typically based on who he likes, after all. So unless there's a huge fan backing (Sonic) or the creator begs for his inclusion (Snake), then I'd say the chances are real slim.

I don't claim to know enough about the behind the scenes stuff to predict whether he'd be included or not. I just said I hope he is included and, if he was, that he would feel completely at home in the game, as far as I'm concerned.

@Jargon That's how I feel about Bomberman, so I can understand your position.

For the record I'd be cool with Bomberman too, love those games. I just think Castlevania has been a bigger title for Nintendo consoles over the years.

Simon Belmont is arguably more of a Nintendo character than the Ice Climbers are.

It's almost not even an argument that he should be the next third party character to get in, if there is another. They could either make him look like he does in the NES game or in Super Castlevania 4, and he could swing his whip around and stuff.

And it would give us a reason to have awesome Castlevania music in the game.

Yes. Some of the best music in gaming. Such excellent potential for an amazing stage design... such a perfect character that would fit right in and practically designs himself. He really is my Mega Man now that Mega Man is confirmed, if that makes sense.

And seriously, if they go through all of the legal stuff with Konami to get either a Belmont or a Snake, then they may as well get both. Everybody seems convinced that Snake won't be back, but I'm not. He's a cool fighter, and there is still stage and music potential in that series as well.

Holy shit this looks good. Wii fit trainer is perfect lol. 3ds version looks surprisingly snazzy. In Sakurai we trust.
