    Very strange characters to reveal... In fact they almost got me with the Animal Crossing intro. I knew that SSB was going to be shown in some way, shape or form, so I knew what it meant pretty fast, but I was still a little thrown off. Sakurai said in the past that Animal Crossing was a series best represented not by characters. Not that I'm complaining. I just hope the character is customizable. Although I'm getting a feeling he's not.

    I also found it weird that they chose the old character models from the games before New Leaf. It seems like they're really going for a series wide representation here, as opposed to only New Leaf. Hence how the AC:GCN theme played at the beginning.

    I don't care about Megaman, but it's doubtless he was a great character to show. I'm just a little thrown off that they only showed those two characters.

    So that's what 3DS and Wii U Smash Bros. will look like. Pretty sweet.

    They sorta made Pit replace Yoshi in the original 8 but I think that's fitting though Marth, Ness or Captain Falcon would have been just as worthy IMO.

    Good to see Mega Man getting some love.

    I like how they did extra stuff for the newcomers on the site, like that artwork for Megaman, while Villager has neat artwork as well.

    I'm hoping this becomes a site that Sakurai will regularly update, like Brawl's Dojo.

    Didn't start looking at the screenshots in detail until now, but check this out:

    It's Skyloft from Skyward Sword. Looks gorgeous.

    Well that's one wish of mine granted. Awesome! And now I'm craving Skyward Sword in HD...

    On another front, uh, okay....apparently this is real. (hat tip to Dragonpiece)

    So new Smash Bros. huh?
    The game looks for the most part pretty much the same. The character graphics haven't necessarily improved (no more stitches on Mario's overalls), but they really went all out on the backgrounds. They look really cool.
    Gotta, say the video presentation was neat. But it didn't hold too many surprises compared to the one Brawl got. And that introduced five new characters, when we only got two (plus one that's just been revealed) for SSB4.
    Speaking of which, the Villager is a cute addition, Mega Man is a nice surprise, but I was never really into the games (love the character art though).
    I love how the Wii Fit Girl is playable. That's so ridiculously awesome.

    Yup. Wii Fit Trainer is completely legit. Looks Top Tier, being fast and with powerful smash attacks.

    Sakurai said the gameplay would have to be radically redesigned in the next Smash Bros. to keep the series fresh (that's right, at least one guy at Nintendo cares about that sort of thing).

    I didn't see anything particularly different in the trailer, but it's early and didn't reveal everything.

    That was a cool video. So now we see why the characters have the outlines, that makes sense. The stages being different in each version is something I don't mind, so long as all the characters will be available in both versions. I gotta admit I do really like how Bowser's standing upright. When watching Subspace Emissary, I found that really odd how he was so hunched over.

    [video=youtube_share;lBoL1Ic9uWw]http://youtu.be/lBoL1Ic9uWw[/video]

    Love it.
    I wonder what other newcomers we will get. I'm hoping Sonic returns, and since Namco Bandai's involved, I'm hoping Pac-Man, Klonoa, or even a Digimon will be playable. On the Nintendo side...hmmm....hopefully Dixie Kong, Toad, Little Mac, Starfy, and a Custom Robo character will make it in this time.

    First Animal Crossing guy, now this? Sakurai must be bored with the series already. Or Nintendo is trolling us.

    Aw come on, it's funny. It's a novelty. They're as legit as Mr. Game & Watch. My only roster concerns are if Mega Man will be joined by Sonic and/or Solid Snake again this time, and if they will finally fix or replace Ganondorf. But by now I think they've earned trust that any absences in the roster will be made up for with other picks, and it isn't as though Brawl is going anywhere.

    Maybe I'm just butthurt the wrestling ring stage doesn't seem to be from Punch-Out or Kirby. But man, those are some strange characters to show first.
