The Smash Bros Miiverse Could Drive Anyone Nuts

The Smash Bros Miiverse Could Drive Anyone Nuts

Part of what makes Smash Bros. so great is that it pits characters from all sorts of different franchises together — naturally, fans have ideas about what characters such be included. Like kids sending letters to the North Pole, lots of people take to Miiverse and write letters to Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of Smash Bros, in the hopes that he'll read the note and do what they ask.

The "Please Sakurai" Tumblr compiles a lot of the Miiverse posts where people beg Sakurai to include characters. Some of the suggestions are jokes. But some must genuine — and it's kind of sad, because Sakurai has made it clear that the development team picks the roster well in advance.

Here's a small selection of the sorts of posts the Smash Bros. Miiverse is full of:

You know what they say, though. Never say never. Plus, it's easy to make fun of this stuff but if my hunch is right — a lot of the folks doing this are kids — it's hard not to be heartened by the fact that they really, really love this franchise.

Still, I wouldn't blame the development team for not wading through all the posts. It's a bit much!

no but seriously tho sakurai pls put in Goku

    Oh dear I hear project m2 coming with a mod that makes toys from games that already uses toys as part of the games being in this new mod ie newly hated angry birds transformers

    Forget goku, I want the original: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-u1AYLwqtTQQ/TfIlZ4T-U5I/AAAAAAAAABI/MP2to1XC9Os/s1600/Masaaki%2BSakai%2B%25282%2529.jpg

    The only 3 additional characters I want to see added to Smash Bros. that could actually be possible would be:
    Krystal (StarFox)
    Maxwell (Scribblenauts)
    Bomberman (Bomberman... duh :P)
    Each of these characters has appeared in multiple games on Nintendo peripherals.
    Krystal is owned by Nintendo and makes sense as an addition to the StarFox limeup without being a clone of Fox.
    Maxwell's potential for a moveset is exciting to think about and Nintendo has a good relationship with 5thCell (even allowed Nintendo cameos in Scribblenaughts Unlimited).
    Bomberman has appeared on almost all of Nintendo's systems and was in a crossover with Wario (Wario Blast). The developers of Bomberman -Hudson Soft- is now owned by Konami who allowed access to Snake previously.
