Extra: GamesRadar’s Smash Bros. Picks
GamesRadar has an article up listing their top picks for Smash Bros., including a Third Party list topped by Mega Man! Here’s what they had to say about him:
First appeared: Mega Man (1987)
To be honest we were a little dumbstruck that ol’ Mega didn’t appear in Brawl as one of the first ever third party fighters. He’s one of the most well-known characters in gaming, his history is very closely tied to Nintendo’s, and his stages would be incredible. Additionally, Smash creator Sakurai is a big videogame music buff, and videogame music doesn’t get much better than the Mega Man 2 soundtrack. It’s time to right this wrong now!
How he should play: Another reason Mega Man is a no-brainer is the fact that to his core he works perfectly with Smash controls. He’s a standard-bearer of classic platforming, his light projectiles from his Mega Buster fit with ranged attacks from characters like Fox and Samus, he has literally dozens of boss power-ups to repurpose in special moves, and his collection of support characters, especially Roll and Rush, would make great cameo attackers. It makes too much sense not to happen!
You can read the rest of their picks, both from Nintendo and other companies, here. It’ll be a long while before development starts on Smash Bros., so we can not really expect much besides speculation articles for now. Still, it’s always good to see support for Mega Man and just to talk about Smash Bros.
