Don't Be Surprised If Tales Characters Appear In Smash Bros.

So Namco Bandai is making the new Smash Bros. games. Know what that means, don't you?

There's a really good chance Namco characters will pop up in Smash Bros.

Tales director and producer Yoshito Higuchi tells The Official Nintendo Magazine that he would totally be happy if Tales characters appeared in Smash Bros. Of course he would! That would be great for the Tales games.

"Maybe if we beg Sakurai-san, it will happen!" Tales producer Makoto Yoshizumi clarified, adding, "I think it's still too early to talk about it."

Ultimately, Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai has the final say over which characters appear in the game.

"We need to keep in mind that a character can only appear in a Smash Bros. game if he already appeared on a Nintendo console," added Yoshizumi. This is one of the conditions, and many Tales characters do not fulfil it. Of course, some do, like characters from Tales of Symphonia or Tales of the Abyss."

You just watch as Namco turns these games into Smash Bros. Nintendo X Namco. You just watch.

    Been hoping for Lloyd from Symphonia in there ever since Brawl was announced.

    Woo! And if they're in they'll increase the awareness of Tales games and hopefully boost sales, leading to more localised Tales games :D (a la Fire Emblem)

    Namco is making them? There goes any hope I had they might be good.

      Agreed, Namco doesn't have any fighting game experience, unlike Nintendo.

    Is "Smash Bros" that Ninty clone of Sony's PSASBR?

    finally pokemon vs digimon debate gets physical via namco, BRING IT ON


    Genis Sage please <3 ilu forever Namco

    Call me stupid/crazy but I don't remember Snake on a Nintendo console? Not saying it never happened, I just really don't recall

      Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes. GameCube.

      NES, and then a port of 2 and 3 called Twin Snakes on Gamecube

      Metal Gear Solid: Ghost Babel (Gameboy Colour)

    If it's Namco I would dig Nightmare from Soul Calibur on the roster.

    This makes me want to break out Brawl again. I never did unlock everything...

    Lloyd on the Wii U version, and Pac-Man for the annoying Namco fans on the 3DS version. But leave it at that, don't go adding every character from Namco's franchises. I'd still like Capcom to add Megaman in both, Treasure to add Isa for the Wii U version, and Level-5 to add Professor Layton for the 3DS version.

    Hope they add Fawful...he rocked in M&L Browsers Inside Stories.
