Video game website VGTribune is doing their own series of polls for Namco Bandai/Sora’s upcoming Wii U and 3DS Super Smash Bros installment, but there’s a catch. During the development of Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl, official polls have been given to Japanese fans in order to find out characters they would like to see. So, VGTribune will even out the playing field by sending the final results of their poll series to Masahiro Sakurai himself.
The 32 characters represented in the website’s first poll – dubbed the “quarterfinals” – include first-party franchises from all over the spectrum. And yes, this includes Xenoblade Chronicles (represented by Shulk, currently the most voted character in the poll), The Last Story (Zael) and Pandora’s Tower (Aeron). In addition, fans can also write in their own favorite characters in the poll’s comment section, but they must be exclusively from a video game on a Nintendo console.
The top 12 characters from the poll and top four most requested write-in characters will compete in the “semifinals” phase on the website later in the month. The “quarterfinals” end Sunday, July 15th at midnight, so cast your vote here soon!
