For the next smash game, I think they should prioritize on recreating all the characters from scratch rather than the newcomers. Having characters with the same moves as their brawl counterpart, some with same brawl voice overs, same final smashes. It's like, it really seems they half and halfed game.
They did remake the characters. Or at least, it certainly feels like they did. Pikachu feels especially different.

How is he worse than Dr. Mario? At least Pittoo is his own character.

This Dark Pit hate is hilarious. There's just something funny about people projecting their disappointment on a fictional character.
In a way, this is a fault of the fanbase.

You don't want characters who have unique moveset but share a similar Final Smash? Well here's a character with no unique moveset but has a unique Final Smash.

Pretty much.

Not to mention that there's no way in hell that Dark Pit took a significant amount of resources to make so it's not like he took up the space of another character or anything. Recolor Pit, change some move properties, change the voice clips and taunts, bam.

People will be disappointed no matter what huh? Well I'm happy.

Now I'm going to play Kid Icarus: Uprising for the first because of the sale.

I'm super sad about no Ice Climbers and Pokemon Trainer. I were most excited about them as this is my first Smash Bros.

I have so many fond memories of Ice Climbers.

That said. Im ecstatic about Duck Hunt Dog. And seeing Jigglypuff back is great. The newcomers of Villager and Mega Man is even more exciting.

Missing Mewtwo as he were from my generation of Pokemon.

I love the roster, but there's simply no way to defend Dark Pit. He is the shittiest newcomer Smash ever had, and there are a million better options for clones besides him. IMO, he the only stain in the entire roster.
hahaha, what? Dr Mario is worse. Pittoo is at least a seperate character with his own personality. Dr. Mario is the same character, again.

In my opinion the main reason I don't like dark pit is because it took away the slot that ice climbers had :(
That's not really how it works. Original characters, even veterans, take a lot more time to implement than clones. It probably took a fraction of the staff, man-hours, and budget to implement Dark Pit than it would've taken to implement Ice Climbers. Especially given the technical challenge of the Climbers, which is probably the whole reason they're not in.

No, he didn't.
Dark Pit and all of the clones more than likely took such little collective effort that, had that not been in the game, the most we probably would've gotten would be a couple of alt costumes.

Would trade Dark Pit for ponytail Peach or Biker Rosalina though.

I felt that this was supposed to be the point of Smash 4 (seeing as everyone does have new animations). But then the 3DS probably happened (I'm still buying both versions though, but it's clear that developing 2 SKUs at the same time affected development in some ways)

With that extra space near Ness, it mean Lucas is DLC, right? :p

Honestly, I don't expect DLC, but having all that space in the CSS is really weird, even more after Smash 64/Melee/Brawl, it really feel like something is missing.

Uh oh... and now we've reached the ugly, nasty part of Smash hype.

When it all falls down and the people turn their bloodthirsty rage upon one another.

Destruction reigns, and blood is shed over the ideals and wishes of so many various factions.

Henceforth, I shall take up my sword in the name of Lucina and ROB.

Roster is fantastic but I won't lie, leaks as usual do dampen the surprise and the lack of Ridley is pretty surprising considering how often he's been asked for, which Sakurai is clearly aware of.)

Regular Mario never even went to college, fam

Dr. Mario went through college, went through med school, became a doctor and now he's throwing pills everywhere

Dr. Mario comes from the Good Timeline where he doesn't need to find the princesses...they come to him because he's obviously making more money as a doctor than some broke assed plumber...

3DS version was the first version planned though

Dr Mario is atleast a different model with a unique moveset.


Dark Pit being a separate character in KI:U means shit all to me, he looks exactly the same as a recolour.


Dark Pit should have been in Alph's position and Alph should have been in Dark Pit's position.

Ice Climbers were doomed the moment they announced the game for 3DS, and especially when they said that they had to cut AT to 30fps to even get the game to run properly. I don't think the 3DS version could handle eight Ice Climbers running all over the stage at once and maintain any reasonable level of performance.

I'm not gonna pretend I'm not disappointed by favorites not returning while the clone count goes up, but in the end I'm OK with what we got.

...Still desperately hope there'll be DLC to fill in those empty spaces, though.
