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!
