2) Wii Fit Trainer
No one saw this coming. NO ONE! The Wii Fit Trainer shocked many fans when she was announced as a playable character, and that’s exactly why I’m putting her so high up the list. This is Sakurai at his absolute best, taking a character whom no one really cared about and turning them into a formidable fighter. All her moves are based on her fitness regime. Yoga, Pilates, and hula hooping make her one of the most diverse characters to ever grace Smash Bros.
1) NEW ENTRY: Shulk
Who was I kidding? Even after hearing rumours, and watching the video leaks, the thought of Shulk being a playable character didn’t fill me with too much excitement. Then the official reveal trailer happened. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about Shulk officially being announced that makes his reveal 10 times better than anyone else’s. Not only that, but he looks like a complete badass. His use of the Monado gives him a wealth of possibilities for combos and strategic gameplay, plus Dunban and Riki join in the fun as part of his Final Smash. Marvellous. Can’t wait to get my filthy mitts on him.
Well, there you go. Do you agree with my list? Which newcomers are you anticipating playing as? Who else do you think will join the roster? Let me know in the comments below.
