Mewtwo was the first dlc character for Smash 4 and a large number of us were overjoyed at his return. But here's the question:

Will Mewtwo appear in Smash Switch? Will he be DLC again or an on-disc unlockable like in Melee?

I certainly hope he's back anyway. I feel like he's earned a slot at this point, especially given the amount of patch work he got in Smash 4.

I really want to see Mewtwo back. He was my most missed character from Brawl, and was one of the few amazing things about Sm4sh when he came back.

Especially with the awesome shadow recolor.

I do miss that shadow ball wasn't able to damage on charging like it was in Melee, but he was a lot better to play overall. Here's hoping he can stop by again!

Mewtwo’s not someone you have to passionately pull hard for anymore since the ammo against him before (sucks competitively, etc) no longer holds any weight... Part of me might miss that since I was used to debating for him on Ridley levels for so long, even before he was cut from Brawl.

I'm sure he will return. I'm not too afraid for him. He was only cut from Brawl because of lack of time and resources. He came back as DLC, as he seem to be of lesser priority, but the reaction Nintendo got for adding him back was quite big.

I just hope Mewtwo will be in the main game, and that I could unlock him again. Getting that "A New Challenger Approaching" sign, with his silhouette in Melee. I want that again.

He was cut twice, for whatever reason. It does not make any logical sense, but given how his priority did not seem to change that much and Mewtwo more or less peaked in Gen 6, he is probably not going to return. Especially if they keep Greninja.

That is the best part though, if we get DLC again, he is practically confirmed! Ha ha.

Well I believe he was fully intended for Brawl but cut for time constraints.

It seems he’s one of those characters that is popular enough to merit DLC but compared to the rest of the cast is put on low-priority.

To have him be cut again this time around, despite his popularity as DLC, would be sketchy.

I don't see why he wouldn't. The only time a character has been dropped from a Smash game who didn't debut in the game prior was with the Ice Climbers in Smash 4, which was a special case, and I think Mewtwo's pretty much established himself as a series staple by this point. Besides, if they were to drop Mewtwo again, it would kind of be a slap in the face, especially considering how popular a decision it was to bring him back as DLC.

he only failed for main thing twice both were time constraints thank heavens the second time a safety net called dlc caught him in smash 4

so this time hes 100% safe due to dlc being a thing for the smash series now so i hope hes not dlc this time and once again hoping for a new moveset

I was overjoyed when Mewtwo was revealed as DLC for Smash 4, easily the hypest reveal for me and would be really mad if he is cut again

Mewtwo was planned for 64 alongside Dedede and Bowser but cut due to time restraints and same situation with Brawl, but seeing as he was chosen as first priority for DLC being one of the most popular requests as well as being the most iconic Pokemon alongside Pikachu and Charizard i'm not too worried.

If he comes back, in the English version he should be voiced by Phil Bartlett, who voiced him in the English dub of the First Movie. That movie was the first exposure to Mewtwo outside of the original games for many of us (although to me the second movie was better since it was set in the Orange Islands, which provided lots of Pokeshipping hints).

That's like the first and only spam post I've ever made and I apologize for making it, lol. I was tired af when I made it and couldn't think of anything to say, and somehow thought it would slide. I should know better than that.

I guess what I meant to convey with it, though, is that I really hope Mewtwo makes it back. :p Hopefully with his moveset relatively unchanged, too.

My only problem with Mewtwo right now is how light it is being portrayed. The three lightest fighters should be Jigglypuff, Mr. Game & Watch, and Kirby respectively.

Being more around Zelda's weight shouldn't be that hard to ask for Mewtwo.
Yeah, I'd love it if Mewtwo were a psychic-using counterpart to Captain Falcon: heavy, fast, and powerful.

Also, if Mewtwo were the heavy magic user of the roster, there would be no more reason to give Ganondorf more magic moves.

A Psychic type of fighter can be hard to adjust to being more heavier I suppose


As long as he's in, I don't care if he's DLC or in game. I'm just happy he came back

I'd love to see Mewtwo come back in Smash Bros.! But one question though:

Since Melee, Mewtwo has used his Japanese voice (Which we've only heard in the Japanese version of Smash), but since he got a new English VA in the Detective Pikachu game, should he have that voice or have a different English voice actor altogether?

It urks me when I read Mewtwo has "high chances of being cut." This echochambered opinion ignores his returning Splash and seemingly, all reason within it.

Then again, I do think Lucas has high likelihood of being cut, particularly if over 10 characters are getting the axe.

So what do I know!


I wish Mewtwo's moves received some visual buffs. I don't mind the attacks except they *all* look immensely weak. I want to see him move the air. I want swirls and storms.
Even for disable.
