We’ve got a few months before the release of Super Smash Brothers Ultimate which means there’s a lot of time to speculate more about this anticipated game.
When the teaser for a new Smash Brothers game came along, everyone erupted into the hype. Blogs and websites everywhere were posting lists and polls of who they wanted to see in the latest Smash game.
So when the roster was announced at this year’s E3, I’ll admit I was surprised to see very little new characters.
Was I disappointed? No, not at all. Believe me, I’m stoked to play as Young Link again. He was my all-time favorite back in the day. Revisiting old characters is just as good as trying out new characters.
Like I said though, I was still surprised to see very little new characters added. The newest we got were the Echo characters.
However, Nintendo Life interviewed Bill Trinen and asked about more characters in Smash. His answer?
“We can answer that when we get closer to December.”
So… we have well over 60 characters for Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. Will there be more announced down the road?
I was also surprised they announced everyone at once, especially when they usually keep up speculating until the release – or they leak characters slowly before the launch date.
Maybe Nintendo has more up their sleeve. Or maybe I’m reading too much into things.
