One of his taunts needs to be Glass Joe randomly spawning, only to get knocked the **** out instantly by Mac.

Was a long time coming. I was pretty bummed when they added him as an assist trophy in brawl. Dude totally deserves to be a full character! Super pumped to see him added.

Ugh. I don't know whether to get a Wii U or PS4 first. Need more money.

Pachendrix said on February 13, 2014 at 2:15 p.m.

This is arguably the biggest announcement since Mega Man's reveal!!!! And IMO this is even bigger news!!!! HYPE!!!!!!!!!! I'm not changing Samus or Luigi though, but Mac is welcomed to be my 3rd character. :D BTW about time we got an actual reveal for Smash, rather than wasting my time reading how the freaking main cast is gonna make it to the game.

Ridley is too big and no resizing him like Bowser would look terrible on him! You've cried not a river but an ocean by now so it's time to build a bridge and get over it!

Oh.My.God.

ABSOLute said on February 13, 2014 at 2:23 p.m.

I never specifically stated in what form; just as long as he makes an appearance, I'll be happy.
I've more or less come to terms with the fact that Ridley will most likely not become a playable character.

More like Nintendo pay attention, stop making awful 3rd party games for your systems. You know it has to be bad when you go to gamestop and buy a preowned copy of link's crossbow trainer for $0.53 which includes tax :/ Oh yeah and then you play it, start to get excited and realize the controller setup is crap.

Anyway back on topic. I love Nintendo but I dont know who little mac is and I doubt i'll be getting a Wii U anytime soon with the high prices I see for it on amazon and ebay. But hey if a new smash bros helps get ppl excited then go for it. I'm all for new fighting games making a big splash when they launch. As much as I love my Coke and Doritos (ie SF4 and Marvel 3) I do wish for a changing of the guard as for as popularity goes.

I've been clamoring for a Punch Out! Character in SSB since N64 days.

YES YES YES!!!!!

I am literally ordering a Wii U right now. I've been meaning to for a while but now that I got my tax return back this morning I owe it to myself and my kids. This and the new Mario Kart are going to be a blast to play.

No Tyson? :(

F-ing awesome, regardless.

#34
Devdan said on February 13, 2014 at 2:35 p.m.

Does the power meter thing mean he's going to have attacks like Makoto Nanaya's drive? I really hope.

Too bad this game is never actually coming out though.

#35
AugustAPC said on February 13, 2014 at 2:36 p.m.

There have really been so few new characters from Nintendo since Melee. Brawl basically drew from older IPs, but they're getting close to tapped out. I hope we get more stuff like Wonderful 101 and the like in the future. We've been getting so much of the same from Nintendo, not that I have a problem with Link, Samus, Donkey Kong and Mario... but I'd love to see some more really brand new IPs.

Personally, the next character(s) I'd LOVE to see is, and I know Nintendo doesn't own this franchise, but a Boy and his Blob would be awesome, IMO.

I highly disagree about the resizing him bit and think he would be an excellent addition to the roster.

As a stage hazzard he would work perfectly...

#42
SgtKonus said on February 13, 2014 at 2:52 p.m.

It's funny, I call it the Nintendo Cycle, it's steps one through five on repeat:

1. Nintendo releases a new IP
2. No one buys it
3. Nintendo does Mario/Zelda/Pokemon
4. Everyone buys it
5. People then complain Nintendo has no new IP's

GUENTO said on February 13, 2014 at 2:53 p.m.

Now THIS is awesome news. Finally a fresh face and a nice addition. Ill be maining him!

If I see one more person say they don't know who Little Mac is I will DEMPSEY ROLL them over the internet!
I'll do it! I've seen Ippo!

#49
AugustAPC said on February 13, 2014 at 3:04 p.m.

I buy them.

But seriously, what new IPs has Nintendo released that no one's bought? Pikmin and Animal Crossing are the only recent IPs that come to mind... and they're still pretty old. But they did pretty well for themselves if I'm not mistaken.

#50
Gotomaster said on February 13, 2014 at 3:06 p.m.

People don't complain about lack of new Ip, they complain about nintendo not reinventing the wheel for their current ones, and not reviving long dead ones. 'Cough' Starfox 'Cough'.

Shalaska said on February 13, 2014 at 3:13 p.m.

In an effort to find the n*qqa that stole his bike, Little Mac fights his way through all kinds of freaks. There you go, official story.

Jokes aside, I'm not much of a super smash fan but I think I'll pick this game up just for good old Mac. I picked up brawl for snake but I really didn't like it. Hopefully this one goes better.

#54
Dodoria said on February 13, 2014 at 3:13 p.m.

this is the only cool and hype character i have seen so far from smash 4 personally, now THAT'S A REAL FIGHTER!!! not goddamn pikachu vs jigglypuff nonsense. I'll admit this makes me want to buy a wii u asap.

About time! This game getting crazy.

I wonder if DK will be his rival in this game. Since he was the secret boss in wii punch out.

arcadifvid said on February 13, 2014 at 3:36 p.m.

ok im more than sold now. getting a wii u soon, though the 3DS looks like a better deal overall. so I'll have to wait and see how the versions fare

is that comic look (where mac punches samus) an available graphic option?

#66

Little Mac looks LEGIT!!!

BunnyBoy said on February 13, 2014 at 4 p.m.

Why does a small hitbox character like Little Mac get so much super/hyper armor on his moves, but characters with giant hitboxes get either no armor (Bowser) or armor on only one move (DK)?

#72
ZeDudd said on February 13, 2014 at 4:05 p.m.

Hahaha, i totally second this! XD

#73
SirRetro08 said on February 13, 2014 at 4:05 p.m.

Well, I’m gonna look at the trailer and analyze (for the 5th time). Mainly, he’s a speedy character that will rely on weak multi-hit attacks that will quickly build up some damage. Then have multiple ways to finish you off. His problem is that he has to get in to do so. Many of the characters can zone him out or do some keep away. Hence his moveset allowing him to close in (at a price, I assume). But I don’t think he’ll be Metaknight whereas he can constantly build up damage, recover and repeat in a very quick cycle. And he has to be aware of grapplers because they LOOOOVE when people get close to them. So, it depends on the final roster, as this is the 23rd character. But, looks maybe somewhere in mid-top to near top tier (umm…yeah lol). Still, it depends who they add next and how they’ll turn out.

#74

Jalenp69 said on February 13, 2014 at 4:20 p.m.

Lmao. The fact that this is so true is hilarious. But this applies to a lot of things.

For ex. New movies come out, no one watches them. Then people complain when reboots or sequels are made.

Little Mac lets gooo!
Capcom where you at?!

#80
BunnyBoy said on February 13, 2014 at 4:21 p.m.

The big guys have a tougher time getting in close than the small characters. Donkey Kong and Bowser especially have it rough vs. characters with spammable projectiles... and they don't have armored moves that will move them forward like Little Mac does. xD

It seems rather unfair, but oh well.

hazelnut1112 said on February 13, 2014 at 4:31 p.m.

This is all I needed. Every other newcomer will be a big bonus for me after this.

dawhistlesgowoo said on February 13, 2014 at 4:36 p.m.

When capcom and nintendo were in the talks of something, and people got hype believing they may make a smash with possibly a street fighter character, i expected dudley to be almost exactly this

#85
SirRetro08 said on February 13, 2014 at 4:38 p.m.

Yeah. I do feel bad for Bowser and DK. Though Sakurai kinda made them a bit more agile, they don't really have something to help them get in. It makes sense for Mac since he's a boxer like Balrog, Steve and Dudley. Still, competitive-wise, it would put them in mid-low to low tier. However, there may be prices Mac gotta pay. And I hope the big guys can be proven that they ain't just only got weight and power...

#86
SirKenjamin said on February 13, 2014 at 4:40 p.m.

He was one of the three characters I was hoping would get added, I'm totally psyched to play as him.
I'm hoping the rumour of alternate outfits is true (Remember Male Wii Fit Trainer?), just so I can fight in his pink hooded jumpsuit.

#95
chubbyfingerz said on February 13, 2014 at 5:05 p.m.

I was thinking of getting the Wii U for Mario Kart, Pokemon... but I dont play those so much. And Im not even a fan of smash. But Little Mac?

SOLD

#96

Well, he has been a requested character for a long time time now, so you shouldn't really be surprised.

I had a good feeling he was going to make it in. I love how tiny he is compared to the other characters as well.

Love the diversity the cast is getting!
Love the comic-style intro too! Definitely hype!!
