Note: These articles are more for discussion purposes before E3. They'll be short, sweet, and to the point for a brief recap and looking into possible characters/stages for each series in Smash Bros. These also go by a "Don't expect too much" philosophy. Please remember to be civil in the comments discussion.
The Wario franchise is interesting because it's of two minds - to give attention to WarioWare and Wario Land. Only Wario has appeared as a playable character, making his debut in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The series had one stage in Brawl, and one in each version of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.
So, what can we expect this time?
There's a 0.1% chance that Wario gets cut for some reason.
If we do see a new character, it'll most likely be Mona or even any of the other WarioWare characters. While Captain Syrup would be nice, too, the focus for Wario in Smash has mostly been on WarioWare. It's doubtful we'll see any other character since Wario does a good job representing the franchise on his own. There's definitely neat ideas in this series for characters, and there's even Waluigi, but it's doubtful they'll make a playable appearance.
We could possibly see WarioWare, Inc. return.
Anything from WarioWare would be likely. Wario World and Wario Land would be nice to see, but highly unlikely.
