Friday Favorites: Wanted Smash Characters

Double Jump Kris MiiWith┬áthe Nintendo Switch slated for release in a couple of months, I was thinking of the games that would be available for the console. Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a game I’m anxiously awaiting, but I’m sure there will also be a new Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart, and a Super Smash Bros. for the Switch. Down below are a few characters that I hope will one day kick ass in a Super Smash Bros. title.
On a side note, where are the games with “sisters” in the title? Us girl gamers are here too!
Ch8gk7awtun-Li, Street Fighter
Chun-Li was the first female playable character in fighting game history, helping to drive the fact that, hey, female protagonists could fight, too. Considering that she was literally made for fighting games, I think it would be awesome to see her in the Smash franchise.
Tifa Lockhart, Final Fantasytifa
Hey, we have Cloud added to the abundance of sword-users in the series… Why not add another brawler? And a female one at that? Tifa Lockhart would have plenty of moves to add to the Smash franchise, helping to round out the roster of Pokemon and swordsman characters.

Professor Layton, Professor Layton Serieshershel_layton

Rachel and I were first introduced to Professor Layton when we tried out the Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright game for the 3DS. And, honestly, we were so impressed with how much Layton kicked ass in both the game and the cutscenes. This gentleman has demonstrated being proficient in hand-to-hand combat, perfect in defending himself against fellow Smashers.

This probably isn’t a surprise to many of you readers who have been around for a while. Geno is probably one of my favorite video game characters of all time, and if it wasn’t for the copyright issue surrounding him, his popularity probably would have already propelled him into the Smash franchise. With a unique character design and a wide array of special attacks from his game, Geno would be an amazing addition.

What characters would you love to see in a future Smash game?

  1. I love those ideas! I’d love for Tifa to join Cloud in Smash for sure. I would also love Professor Layton. We haven’t seen him in a while, so I hope he’s still in their memory. Lady Layton could replace him if need be! At least Phoenix Wright made it to a fighting game period. He plays hilariously in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and I love every reference that they packed into his fighting style. I could see him working as a funny character in Smash. Also, Geno would be nice too! They at least got his costume, so maybe one day? I don’t know if it would be too much of a problem, especially since they got Cloud in there. Geno even showed up in the first Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga during a minigame, so anything’s possible really! I’d most like to see King K. Rool, the Donkey Kong Country villain who was shafted for a costume in Smash Wii U. Sigh. Maybe next time.

    • I’m game for another female if Lady Layton would like to step up to the plate! I heard Phoenix was in that fighting game — Rachel and I will have to see if we can pick it up somewhere! I would LOVE it if Geno made it into Smash. Just imagine all of his special moves playing out in the fighting game! King K. Rool is a solid choice as well. He’s such a classic villain!
