    And with the exact same terrible move set…

    • MrKappa

      If the game is more balanced then his awful move set won’t be doing pitiful damage and keeping him from getting KOs so his move set being the same hopefully won’t be a problem.

    • Nick Pantazis

      Sonic was mid-ish Tier range. With some better damage and knockback he’d be fine.

    This is good…very good…

    Now let’s get Simon Belmont.

    • Budgiecat

      And Optimus Prime

      • DreamDrop♥

        Because transformers was a big 8 bit and 16 bit franchise…

    Mario vs mega-man vs sonic = PURE AWESOMNESS

  • Budgiecat

    Where’s Mighty No. 9?

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    So does this mean we get Snake as well?

    • SuperLuigi

      Snake hasn’t been on a Nintendo console besides snake eater 3D in forever. I wouldn’t expect him back.

        The whole thing feels less like a new smash bros, and more like an updated Brawl,

        Hence I assumed.
