Hideki Kamiya is a name well known to those in the circles of action video game fandoms having created some of the most iconic characters of the past two decades with a number of them even appearing in multiple fighting games.

From his time at Capcom and now at Platinum Games, Kamiya has helped create and directed titles like Devil May Cry, Resident Evil 2, Viewtiful Joe, Okami and Bayonetta, and now he wants to know which of his characters you'd most want to see join the Umbra witch in Nintendo's latest game.

Platinum's director who is well known for his Twitter escapades recently posted a poll to his social media account (via Destructoid) asking fans if they'd like to see Dante from Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu from Okami or Wonder Red from Wonderful 101 as DLC characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Unfortunately, he's since pulled a very Kamiya move and deleted the original post seemingly due to being bombarded with responses that he asked fans to refrain from, but one insider feels that the poll may still hold significance despite the director saying he has nothing to do with Smash Bros.

Liam Robertson, who works with channels / websites like DidYouKnowGaming?, Unseen64 and Nintendo Life, recently shared that "Kamiya genuinely does use Twitter to survey for future projects and [collaborations]" and is friends with Masahiro Sakurai, so it's possible he could have already had discussions about it and may be "gauging interest out of personal curiosity."

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighters Pack with five DLC characters — the first of which being Persona 5's Joker — has already been decided upon by Nintendo, but you can vote in our recreated poll after the jump for which of Kamiya's most memorable characters you'd most want to see in Smash.

Which of Hideki Kamiya's characters would you most want to see in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?
