Gaze Into A Smash Bros. Game Filled With Unusual Characters

Announcing new characters in a Super Smash Bros. game is a strange mix of excitement, nostalgia, and a touch of self-mockery. 2008′s Super Smash Bros. Brawl had a very successful website called the Super Smash Bros. Dojo that gave out daily updates on the game, and some of those updates echoed through gaming communities — “Diddy Kong confirmed for Brawl” or “Sonic confirmed for Brawl.” When Nintendo announced some new characters for the upcoming Wii U/3DS entry, they started a new style of character announcements that many fans have already adopted for their favorite or joke characters.

For reference, here’s a screenshot from the video announcing the Wii Fit Trainer, one of the new Smash Bros.‘s three new characters (alongside the Villager from Animal Crossing and Mega Man).

Then fans went and made their own character announcements in the same style, as collected by Kotaku. None of these are confirmed and many have little chance of actually making it into the game, but they’re fun to look at. Even though this is the new announcement format, I’ll still subconsciously be saying that “[new character] is confirmed for Brawl!”
