Request: Bayonetta and Wonderful 101 to star in Super Smash Bros Wii U/3DS
I am part of the huge crowd that is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Super Smash Bros on both Wii U and 3DS. The series first made its debut on the Nintendo 64 in 1999. Since then, it has become one of Nintendo’s greatest IP’s. Well it has for me anyway.
We got to see the first gameplay footage of Nintendo’s latest addition to the Super Smash Bros series via their E3 Nintendo Direct session, which saw Megaman, Villager and Wii Fit Trainer make their entry into the series. Since then the following characters have been confirmed for its roster:
- Donkey Kong
- Pikmin and Olimar
- Megaman (debut)
- Villager (debut)
- Wii Fit Trainer (debut)
Those are just the 14 confirmed characters so far. Super Smash Bros Brawl had a total of 39 playable characters and I can imagine the latest rendition hitting around the 50 character mark. Hopefully 2 of those characters are Bayonetta and Wonder Red, of The Wonderful 101!
I feel that both of these characters can add a lot to a game like Super Smash Bros. Both of them could potentially have an extremely in-depth arsenal of attacks. With both The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 being exclusive to the Nintendo Wii U, there is every chance of this actually happening. So I don’t see why not?
Also, there is currently a petition to get Reggie Fils-Aime, the President and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, into the game as well. It would be absolutely hilarious to see him in the game and would be a fantastic addition to the roster. Come on Sakurai! Get the Regginator in the game!
