So what is your favorite game based off of any form of media. It could be a TV show it could be a movie or anything that's based off of something. Here's mine Spongebob Battle for Bikini Bottom: I recently played this game, it's actually very addicting and fun. It's kind of like Banjo Kazooie with Spongebob characters and the dialogue can be funny. So what's your favorite discuss away!
3rd Party characters have always been an...interesting subject to say the least when it comes to Super Smash Bros; ever since Solid Snake's Introduction in Super Smash Bros Brawl, people have been speculating and giving their thoughts on what 3rd Party characters they would want to see, ranging anywhere from Banjo-Kazooie to Sgt Cortez of Timesplitters, to Master Chief, to F***ing James Bond, and with Megaman's introduction in the new game, discussion has sparked once again. In this blog, I give my personal opinion on what 3rd parties I'd be interested in seeing(a lot of bias, so don't take this to heart). I'd also like to point out that I don't expect all of these characters to appear, only about 2-3. Since It's opinionated, I'll throw in a few things: - One per franchise: So no Knuckles, Raiden, Protoman, etc. - I'll still have more characters per company: So I'll still throw in some characters if they still belong to Sega or Capcom for example - Have to have had appeared on a Nintendo console as a major character in that game(so no Cloud, Morrigan, etc.) - No Sony or Microsoft characters(so no Rare unfortunately,even though Banjo & Kazooie and Ratchet & Clank would rock) - I originally was going to include Pac-Man, but at this point he's probably already in the game - No Movie, Comic, TV, Cartoon, or Anime(just because it's Namco Bandai doesn't mean anything) characters.....however, I am willing to make one exception 10) Wreck-It Ralph From: Wreck-It Ralph I know about what I said earlier about "No movie characters" and whatnot, but Ralph just feels so perfect. In what could be taken as "The Roger Rabbit of Video games" and as the ultimate Video Game movie, Ralph blends really well with the Nintendo casts especially after appearing alongside the likes of Bowser. And after making a guest appearance on "Sonic Sega All-Stars Racing: Transformed", I feel like anything is possible. 9) NiGHTS From: NiGHTS into Dreams and NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams With Sega and Nintendo's new deal, I wouldn't be surprised to see Sonic back, and while I also expect some of his friends to appear, I'd be more satisfying with someone more unique, like NiGHTS. NiGHTS has a certain appeal that, for some reason, reminds me quite a bit of Super Mario Galaxy, and the series's long awaited sequel for the Wii certainly helped that . And while the sequel certainly isn't as popular as the original game, NiGHTS has a lot of appeal and demand that could help push for a spot on the Roster 8) Klonoa From: Klonoa Wii, Moonlight Museum, Empire of Dreams, Dream Champ Tournament, Densetsu no Star Medal First off, the guy looks like Mascot Material, which means he goes well with the characters like Mario, Sonic, Megaman, etc. He has also been given some exposure on Nintendo's platforms through various 2D platformers on the Gameboy Advance as well as a ground-up remake on the Wii, the only reason he's much lower on the list is because he's a very obscure character(though having more games than NiGHTS puts him higher) 7) Viewtiful Joe From: Viewtiful Joe, Viewtiful Joe 2, Red Hot Rumble, Double Trouble Along with Megaman, Viewtiful Joe is also popular among many Nintendo fans, with his franchise kicking off on the Gamecube. His zaniness and goofiness makes him a popular fit in the Smash roster, and both Tatsunoko Vs Capcom and MvC3 both help mold him into a strong fighter along with his own series, using time based attacks that could help him take the advantage. Nintendo's recent alliegence with Platinum games also makes him a good contender for the roster(though the decision is ultimately up to Capcom 6) Sora From: Kingdom Hearts series(mainly Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days, Re:Coded, Dream Drop Distance) Not gonna lie, at first I was never a fan of having the guy in Smash, but seeing him gain more titles on Nintendo's handhelds and seeing the Nintendo fans on the Kingdom Hearts Fandom grow, I began to accept him and even embrace him. It's hard for me to deny that it would be awesome to see him fight alongside the likes of Link and Marth. It would also be nice to see him show up in the game alongside the announcement of a Kingdom Hearts III Wii U port(why that game is on the Xbone and not the Wii U, I will never know). Though truth be told, having to make a deal with both Disney and Squeenix would be a bitch. 5) A Final Fantasy Character From: Too damn many games One thing that always bugged me about SSB character spectulation was the absolutely absurd idea of using a character from a(albeit good) Mario Spin-off*coughGenocough* over a character from Square's flagship franchise. Before Final Fantasy VII, the popular JRPG franchise was one of the NES and SNES's top dogs, and there has been plenty of fans clamoring for a Square Enix rep, and what better way than to use a character from their top franchise? Though the problem is deciding which character to use, with suggestions ranging from generic classes like Black Mages and Warriors, to Moogles, to Cloud Strife. In my opinion, I feel Cecil from Final Fantasy IV(which seems to be Square's favorite game besides VII and XIII) and Terra from FFVI(which seems to be the fans favorites), though I'm leaning towards Terra do to the potential of another Magic heavy character 4) Lloyd Irving From: Tales of Symphonia, Dawn of the New World The main character of one of the popular games in the Tales franchise, one of the few RPGs on the Gamecube, best selling Tales game in the West, the list goes on. While the Tales series is one of Namco's most popular franchises in Japan, the series didn't get any recognition in America until they teamed up with Nintendo to make this game a huge success. Like Sora, I've also wanted to see him team up with Link to kick some ass 3) Phoenix Wright From: The Ace Attorney series Since his introduction on the GBA in Japan and the DS in the US, Phoenix Wright has become one of the most popular Capcom characters yet, with many people shouting his famous "OBJECTION!" and "HOLD IT!" all over the internet. And while it does seem ridiculous for a Lawyer to be in a fighting game, Capcom already did that in Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3, with hilarious results. 2) Simon Belmont From: Castlevania series As a massive MGS fan, I have to face the facts, unless by some miracle Phantom Pain and Ground Zero end up on the Wii U(which would be freatly appreciated by the way), there's very little reason for him to come back. However, I could se him passing the torch to Simon Belmont of the Castlevania series. As one of the most brutal platformers of the NES and SNES era, Simon bring some whipping action(well that didn't sound right at all) to the fight, and his high nostalgic value is very welcome among many fans, myself included. And now this is where my biased fanboyism kicks in 1) Travis Touchdown From: No More Heroes, Desparate Struggle If you know me well enough, you probably saw this coming light years away. But yeah, Travis would be both hilarious and awesome to see. His realistic appearance makes him look like an intimidating character, but behind that is a goofy and zany assassin who's in it to win it. His swordplay mixed with professional wrestling moves also makes him look like a very strong and intersting fighter. Plus if he does get in, it would definitely help raise my spirits for a No More Heroes 3 Honorable mentions: Banjo and Kazooie Bomberman Rayman Earthworm Jim Ryu(Street Fighter) Ryu Hyabusa(Ninja Gaiden) Leon S Kennedy(Resident Evil) The characters mentioned above are here because I a) never played much of their games, never got interested in them, or c) the characters on my list were just more appealing to me. However, I do acknowledge these characters as highly important in the Nintendo community and would still love to see them in the game, despite personal preferences. Now let the hate comments commence
