So we have support threads for each veteran returning and threads speculating who's going to be cut. But I've got a better topic for you, how about all your favorite Smash characters come back? Yep, everyone. The whole roster from Smash 4 plus the cut characters Ice Climbers, Wolf, Snake, Pichu, Young Link, Squirtle, Ivysaur and even the Pokémon Trainer. All 66 characters from the series should be in the next Smash game. It could happen. Melee hasn't cut the N64 veterans. When veterans were cut from Brawl and Smash 4, that caused a lot of controversy and people missed those characters. People were excited when Mewtwo, Lucas and Roy came back as DLC. Though the Pokémon Trainer could cause problems for players who liked the improvements in Charizard as a solo character, if everyone comes back it would mean that trainer comes back too. But there are people who liked that trainer, so it wouldn't be fair if he was the only one cut. And the cut veterans in past Smash games had some issue in the way. But what if Sakurai made veterans a higher priority than newcomers and made sure nothing gets in the way of any veterans coming back and even persuaded Konami, Sega, Capcom, Namco, Square Enix and Platinum Games to reuse Snake, Sonic, Mega Man, Ryu, Pac-Man, Cloud Strife and Bayonetta in the new game? Do you think there's a possibility for the whole cast to make it in?
