Hello everyone,i`m new here,please forgive my english if i spell some words wrong i`m a french canadien.
I`m a huge smash bros fans,i remember the good times i had with friends and family playing the games and i`m excited for the new game for 3ds and Wii U.I throught about what i`d like to see in the next smash bros and i think,by looking at brawl,i have 5 things to mentions in my wishlist.Excuse me if it`s long,i have a lot in my mind.
1-A gameplay more like the original,Melee than Brawl
It`s not just the advanced techniques from Melee but the overall feeling of the controls as well for me.I enjoyed Brawl but i didn`t liked how floaty jumping felt like in that game and triping around was more annoying than fun.Also with no or few depths in that game it never really hooked me in like Melee did.I spent over 250 hours in Melee.In comparission with Brawl,in that game,i spent i think something more like 30-50 hours in there before i ceased to play it.The fluidity of the action and the depth is something that i think should be back for the new game,especially when the connectivity between 3ds and Wii U could make this the best game in the series yet.
2-A smaller,more balanced and diversified cast.
I recently went back to playing Melee on the gamecube and i loved how the game makes me want to play and try out many characters.The roster wasn`t too big but they were a good portion of the cast that i enjoy to play as.In Brawl,the roster was bigger and the so-called
got updated to feel more unique but most characters felt like they are a waste to play,so i ended up using only a few characters like Mario and Wolf for exemple.I also liked in the older games each characters brought something to the table,like everyone had something interesting agaisn`t each others.I think it would be a good thing if instead of having a bigger roster with few characters that i`l ever use,they could narrow it down to something more like 20-30 over 30-40 plus characters.A smaller cast would mean more time and polish on each characters which means better balance and with uniques and interestings playstyle for everyone.I dont want duplicates like Lucas or Toon Link,i want characters with something that will make me want to try them and play as them rather than waste my time.
3-Moving forward with alternate skins
I remember how cool it was in Brawl where Wario had an alternate costume which is not something you see a lot in smash bros games.But,plenty of fighting games has alternate skins and it`s nothing new but i think this idea could make things interestings and allow clones that peoples like without throwing them away for eternity.Instead of having,for exemple,Pikachu and Pichu as separate characters like they were in Melee,Having almost like a different characters with the same moveset could become the new standard for something like an alternate costumes.Imagine instead of having Mario or Luigi as separate characters they would occupy the same spot but Luigi would be complete with his own voice and gameplay changes.If the pokemon trainer is back,then his alternate skin could be the female pokemon trainer and while the pokemons she would summon would be the same,the proprieties of their attacks could changes.From there,you could see cool stuffs like skinless Bowser from Super Mario 3d Land or Pit with the three sacred treasures or even toon link and princess rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy.This could be a new standard for alternate costumes in fighting games,could allow characters that have more chances of being in MUGEN of anything to be playable and it would save spaces in the character selection screen for stuff like created and DLC characters.I definitly think they should move forward with this idea.
I didn`t play as Zero suit Samus a lot,i barely tried Wario,I forgot Captain Olimar existed in that game and i dont think Toon Link was even an interesting choices to have in that game.That doesn`t mean they were bad characters or anything but i`d like if they could bring characters that would bring unique stuff to the battlefield to make them stand out.From there they can go in many directions.For exemple,they never were a summon-type character neither a mecha-like character or a straight brawler or something even more mind-blowing than ROB or Mr.Game and Watch.If you remember the Non-Specific Action Figure at E3,they could go crazy with the Wii U gamepad.Imagine how cool it would be if the game for the Wii U would include the action figure itself.With the NFC tech you could put the figurine on the gamepad and voila,you could play as the Non-Specific Action Figure.For his moveset,i dont think i need to bother it should be Non-Specific,like the attacks he does are random since he has a sword,a gun and his fists.
5-Namco characters,yay or nay
I think unlocking Namco characters would be more interesting than unlocking Luigi or Jigglypuf or Ganondorf again and again.In fact,i`m sure that if they choose good picks and make them interesting while being faithful to their games people would love them.Having a Tekken characters could bring a traditional fighting game character into Smash Bros and while conserving the aspect of his or her character` gameplay.Pacman could be a lot of fun as a runaway-type character and his final smash could make him turn into his classic form and go eat everything in his passage.KOSMOS could be a great female addition with all the crazy weapons she got and what would be an awesome final smash to see.And Tales of Characters could be easy to add from a gameplay standpoint since the fighting in the games take place in the same perspective as the Smash Bros series.It would be a great bunch to see as unlockables.
With this in mind this is my dream roster.That said i let some empty space so some classic Nintendo characters could be added and Sakurai knows how to surprise people.Here it is;
-Zelda and Sheik
-Samus and Zero suit Samus
-Mr.Game and Watch
-Non-Specific Action Figure through NFC action figure
-Ray from Custom Robo,it`s been a while since i didn`t heard of this serie
-Some forgotten classic character
-Your Miis,mine especially lol
-A highly requested character from fans
-A surprise character,maybe someone that some people would like to see very much.
As for the Namco characters to unlock,they would be 4 based on my ideas;
-Jin from Tekken
-KOSMOS from Xenosaga
-Luke from Tales of the Abyss
Now it`s 32-34 characters,everyone has their alternate characters with them which is different for everyone,some are different characters while others could be a different form of their characters.Non-Specific Action Figure is like i said a figure that you put on the gamepad in order to access him while your Miis is a character whose moveset you create based on every characters and their alternates forms in the roster.As for modes and stages i think it`s enough for me it`s a big post already.
