Sakurai: Capcom character could appear in next Smash Bros.

This information comes from Masahiro Sakurai…

“I can’t say that it’s entirely out of the realm of possibility that some Capcom character could appear in the next Smash Bros. The big problem, though, comes from the idea of trying to get characters from a completely different universe to fit with the style that has been dictated by Nintendo’s characters in a fighting game. In fact, I actually think it’s a miracle that we got Smash Bros. and all the Nintendo characters to work together in the first place. Especially when you bring Pokemon into the mix and a lot of the complications that are caused by that being an almost completely different entity on its own, it’s really something. So this is something that obviously will come up more as we get started on the new Smash Bros. development, but keeping those things in mind I think is important.”

It’ll be very interesting to see how many third-party characters show up in the next Smash Bros. games. Right now, we don’t even know if Snake and Sonic will be returning!

    (After Brawl was launched)
    -Fans: Why wasn’t Megaman in Brawl?
    -Capcom: Well, we would have liked it, but Nintendo didn’t ask us…
    -Nintendo: Well, we would have liked it, but Capcom didn’t come to us…

  • Brawlio

    I would like to have megaman and ryu, but better yet, I want TRAVIS TOUCHDOWN ! please Nintendo talk with SUDA51, you know he wants Travis in, and we want him too!

  • Extreme-Brah

    Jak and daxter :3

    Travis Touchdown. :D

    I think third-party characters should be exclusive to each Super Smash bros. installment (I.E. Snake and Sonic shouldn’t return, instead they should have other third-party characters).

    Your article looks great!Thanks for you sharing. I love it.

  • Rose

    i think some Legend Of Dragoon characters should appear along side Final Fantasy 7


    Who needs Capcom characters?
    Probably they’re unfair to veteran Smashers like me.

  • Awesomeman

    I hate that they will have to cut down on characters more then they make characters since the game chips of the 3DS are smaller than the wii and can’t store as much. (sigh) I hope they add tails and megaman though. Why can’t game chips store unlimited data!! I’ts no fair.

  • Awesomeman again

    And by the way,”Extreme Brah”, Jack and Daxter should not be in it because THEY ARE NOT NINTENDO CHARACTERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Learn your Nintendo people.

  • Awesomeman

    (by the way, I do know that tails isn’t nintendo, he’s just cool.) (not that jack and daxter aren’t cool, but tails is cooler.)

  • Issun

    isn’t it obvious? they will probably add Okami Amaterasu, cause that game is SO. FREAKING. AWESOME.

  • Fraid

    I think there should be a Resident Evil character for the next ssb, actually Nintendo first third party is Capcom and they have more RE games on Nintendo platforms, much more than Megaman and Viewtiful Joe.
    Why..would they add megaman?? When he can’t even get into CAPCOM owned games. LMAO

  • adrian

    Saben creo que deberian poner a todos los personajes de videojuegos (la mayoria)
    pero no pueden evitar que capcom y konami se unan, ojala pongan mas de 100 personajes y que si por ejemplo haya mas personajes se pueda actualizar como un juego de angry birds


    Oh, A robloxian should be in the next game, I might go there.

  • NEOC

    Mr. Awesomeman… note that this post actually states that maybe a Capcom character will appear in next SSB installement.
    Obviously we’re not discussing about Nintendo characters.
