Update: The results are in! Looks like third party characters are particularly popular among our Smash fans here. Hit the jump below to check out how everyone voted.

Earlier: Over the years, we've seen a very diverse cast of characters enter fray that is the Super Smash Bros. series. While many of these characters have been mainstays for a long time, others have had to be cut from later games.

Just recently, a new Super Smash Bros. title for the Nintendo Switch has been announced to be coming out this year, in 2018. As is tradition with the series and its fans, discussions about the title's roster has already begun.

The selection of fighters has gotten larger with every iteration. Super Smash Bros. 64 had a total of 12 playable fighters, Melee had 26, Brawl threw 39 at us, while Smash 4 allowed us to select from a total of 58 fighters after DLC.

In total, we've had 67 unique combatants be playable in the series so far. This counts Pokemon Trainer, Charizard, Squirtle, and Ivysaur as being completely separate.

Who will make it into the Switch title? How large will the roster be? Only time will give us our answer...

Which fighters would have fans the most excited? After the jump, you'll have 10 votes to submit in our poll. That might seem like a lot, but there are 64 choices -- we're not counting Mario and Link as they are basically confirmed at this point.
