Jul 11th, 2014


This week has been pretty eventful for Nintendo fans. Project Cars for Wii U was delayed into 2015, despite the other versions of the game planning on launching in November. That’s a serious blow for racing fans, who have been lauding the series as one produced by racing fans, for racing fans to enjoy.

The other big news item is that Nintendo has announced a live character reveal for Super Smash Bros. on Monday. There’s tons of speculation that we could be getting up to three characters revealed to help round out the roster, with many people hoping for additional Fire Emblem characters, while others want to see Nintendo pull characters from other gaming franchises. One thing for sure though, if Solid Snake is revealed a lot of people are going to be upset.

Here’s a look at what’s popular on the forums this week:

Be sure and check out the forums this weekend if you want some hearty discussion on which character or characters we could see on Monday. Who is your most wanted character for Super Smash Bros. that hasn’t been announced yet?

  • Hey, I like Solid Snake lol

  • Filip Ionut Catalin

    I would like Ryu from Street fighter 🙂

    • great deku tree

      Yes! I’ve said this before as well I think it would be awesome! his move-set would be perfect as well. b hadouken, up b shoryuken, side b (his spinning kick move) etc etc as well as his final smash being metsu hadouken.

      Also, imagine Kirby after swallowing Ryu with his high pitched voice shouting “hadouken” hahaha

      • chris

        and it should be his puzzle fighter version haha

    • Merry_Blind

      No reasons for him to be in this, sorry…

  • David Trail

    Namco are a-holes

    I hope it is Shulk or Bayonetta o both.

    What is Smash Run?

    A Diddy Kong Racing 2 on Wii U would be awesome.

    I think the Wii U should come in different colours other than just black and white. I would like an all gold Zelda Wii U. I would buy a Wii U all over again for that.

    Hyrule Warriors looks awesome

    Because it’s F-Zero.

    • C4

      Agreed on 2 – 7 🙂

      Thread is about color use in games as far as I can see. Colors for Wii U they should make them and don’t forget Pro Controllers.


      • HorizonChaser

        You left off Gamecube Purple. :/

        • C4

          Not my images sorry 😉

      • James Miller I

        I want Legend of Zelda Gold!

        • C4

          Gold and sky blue (or whatever the Wii U logo blue is) would fit perfectly yeah…

    • Merry_Blind

      *Clap* *Clap* *Clap*

      Actually according to Slightly Mad themselves, Namco is completely blameless here. Slightly Mad have taken all the credit for the delay. (And they were so arrogant about it too).

      Sucks to be Slightly Mad, and Namco. It makes no business sense what so ever to release Project Cars on the PS4 and Xbox One at that time because of the releases of Forza, Drive Club and other racers occurring almost simultaneously. Meanwhile the Wii U is lacking a racing simulator…

  • AM Real

    Who would be upset if Snake is included?? It would be sick if he’s included again…doubtful but it would be dope

    • Jeff Jackson

      I think they want this to be E 10 that’s probably why

  • great deku tree

    yes I was thinking that there’d be at least 3 character reveals. 2 old and at least 1 new. I mentioned this in the other post today but I’ll re-write it.

    You know how at E3 Nintendo had those little cartoons with guys shouting “what’s it gonna be? another Mario game?!” they should do the same with Cpt. Falcon and Ganondorf. Have Cpt falcon make fun of Ganondorf for having the same move-set then Ganondorf attacks him with a different moves. They then start fighting then a newcomer interrupts the fight.

    The whole newcomer interrupts the fight is a bit old when it comes to revealing newcomers so far to SSB4 but that was just an idea. I’m sure they could come up with something better but either way I think there’ll be 2 veterans revealed and at least 1 newcomer. who could it be? anyone really if they even include the likes of WFT it could even be fi.

  • Spoon

    Ridley, King K. Rool & Black Shadow.
    Am I the only one who wants either of them?

  • Jeff Jackson

    Yu Narukami from persona

  • RandroidRampage

    Wait hold on. Why would people be upset if Solid Snake returned? Guy was a badass in Brawl. I wouldn’t mind him coming back, but could someone explain? I would appreciate it.

    • chris

      People just hated fighting him. His attacks were insanely good.

    • FutureFox

      Because there hasn’t been a Metal Gear on Nintendo for since Gamecube and even that was a remake. Save a slot for characters who have games on the system.

    • Nintendofreak

      everything makes sense except the sales xd

  • RecheDiazrivarola


    XDXD This is the opinion of the japanese,

    • Christian Schoff

      Perfect. Lol

  • steveb944

    I hope we don’t hear about Project Cars for a bit. I’m still having hype withdrawals.

  • boynhisblobs

    So now Namco is gonna say how Project Cars sold worst on the Wii U and they’re not gonna make any more games for the system. Kinda just like EA bringing Need for Speed Most Wanted a year later to Wii U then claiming it didn’t sell well on the system… it’s almost becoming a running joke at this point.

  • Tra Allen

    We need another sonic character

  • James Miller I

    I will preorder Smash Monday if Shulk is announced or any character from Xenoblade Chronices, Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia, or Issac or any character from Golden Sun
