Depending on if Game and Watch appears in that upcoming "Game and Wario" game for the Wii U, GW could possibly get some moveset adjustments to better reflect his more recent appearance.

the parachute lives on, as a recovery buff.

never again shall he whiff an edge like in Melee.

and I agree new moves from Game& Wario would be nice, though Judgement must stay(it's as iconic to him as falcon punch to cap.)

I know game and watch will be in the next smash because of the history behind it.He was one of the first ever video game characters created by nintendo. If not,I will go and find Sakurai and throw a...idk...A homemade game and watch....uh....slipper at him!He'll be running home scared then!

Sometimes I think Mr. Game & Watch is a little too strong, but his very light frame and poor defensive maneuvers do balance him out, in a way.

Incredibly strong, good speed, great recovery, awesome momentum cancelling, yes, but then one realizes that he's one of the lightest chars in the game and a lot of his moves are quite laggy.

G&W would be so much better if he had a legit range threat.
Yeah, his neutral B should be more of a range threat.

Also, Mr. Game and Watch's down B IMO should definitely be replaced. That move is nearly worthless (in both Melee and Brawl), and it is among the least used and least useful moves in smash thus far. I'm sure Sakurai and co. could think of a better move (that is awesome, like most of Mr. Game and Watch's other moves) for Mr. Game and Watch!

Didn't Mr. G&W's forward aerial reference Mario Bros.? The package that he used came from that Game & Watch title.

Actually, while Game's downB was certainly not very useful in Melee, it was one of his most useful moves in Brawl. It stopped ALL momentum when he was sent flying which allowed him to live to crazy %'s. The technique was called "Bucket Breaking".
I'm aware of that... although I forgot to mention that as its' only use! :laugh: :lol: :facepalm:

What I should have said was that Mr. Game and Watch's down B is worthless as an attack. :bee:

Also, I doubt that technique will be in Smash WiiU and 3DS, thus it would be worthless (again). That and another move could always do that.

@bubbaking: Here's a sprite sheet from Game & Watch Gallery 3. If you look hard enough, you should see the sprite that resembles the item that Mr. G&W uses with his f-air.

I have a feeling that the Wii Fit Lady is the new Game and Watch type character if he is removed.
I agree. She is the same type of gimmick. And I think Villager is also a replacement in terms of quirky movesets.

Villager to me seems like a completely different character, he doesnt seem to fit for a GnW type character. Him and Mega Man are very very normal and wanted compared to her.

I mean the quirks of using pots, bowling balls, and weird objects in his moveset.

Agreed. I thought Villager resembled G&W too when I saw that video haha. Pulling random objects out of nowhere. Anyway, I hope he comes back. They need to buff Chef, maybe give the projectiles a set trajectory so you can semi-camp with it.
