Whatever they do, I just hope they take that ****ing random tripping out.

They did that

... Am I the only one who actually thought the random tripping was a good addition?

They already did that with Mr Game and Watch.

Mr. GaW was an awesome call back. I owned many of his games before I received the Game Boy and they were much fun.

Cool or not, Mr Game & Watch was basically a stick-man.

Yes and no. He still had his own style and characteristics as minimalistic as it may seem, along with the many memorable jobs he had to do.

While I'm probably going to still main the Mewtwo/Lucario type character, I know I'm gonna play as the Wii Fit Trainer a lot. It's amazing. (She didn't even have to bribe her way in. All of the women in games before this are rich.)

Probably not. But most people hated it.

They should have included Mega Man X as well.
His Down+B could be an armor change like Zelda's transformation.
Fourth Armor, Falcon Armor, Gaia Armor, Blade Armor, Glide Armor, Ultimate Armor and so on.
They have quite a selection here and thus quite a few options to make another interesting and fun character. X is pretty cool but unfortunately he his hardly getting any love from anyone these days. Maybe Nintendo can change that by including him via dlc.

CriticalMiss:
So is Mega Man going to have some kind of Kirby-like ability to steal other characters moves? It is mentioned about his ability to gain new moves from defeating bosses, but will he just be given a selection from his past games to use off the bat or will he have to gain them in combat by beating other people?

I think he more means how Megaman has a wide variety of powers he's used in all his games, and meanwhile all Capcom could come up with MvC was "punch, kick, and make things up".

Eh, X doesn't offer anything good. Terrible character from a terrible series.
Nevermind the whole "make things DLC" idea. I'd rather get a whole game.

Mega Man X is an overall improvement on the original Mega Man series, storywise and in overall architecture. This dude explains it pretty nicely. If you don't like it that's your problem. Doesn't make it terrible though. You can dislike chocolate or tomatoes as well. Won't make those terrible either. Expand on your reasons for disliking something and you may be able to make a point. At this state, it's just ranting/trolling.
Well you say that Mega Man X offers nothing good. I'd like to know what Mega Man offers, that Mega Man X doesn't. X can do anything Mega Man can do, and more. Much more. And we do have Link and Young/Toon Link in Smash already, I hardly see a problem of having the young and adult version of Mega Man in there as well. And Young/Toon Link doesn't add anything new to the table. It's essentially the same character with different weight ratio and altered A attacks. X and Mega Man differ more than that, in special weapons and additional features such as armor or abilities.

The DLC thing was mentioned because the current list of new characters seems to be already set. Since they already teased them on E3 I doubt there are any other new characters in Smash 4. I remember back then when I unlocked stuff in Smash Melee that I was genuinely surprised by the characters that were included in the game. Granted, I read less about games as opposed to just playing them unlike these days but I don't remember new characters being teased as much - if at all - back then for Smash Melee. So, since the new characters for Smash 4 have already been revealed, I doubt there are any more new ones other than the ones shown on E3 and Nintendo Direct, especially since they made a huge deal out of it. This means the only other way of adding new characters at this point would be DLC, unless they make a new game for 1 or 2 characters which hardly makes sense.

And there actually is DLC that adds stuff to whole, complete games as opposed to filling holes in an incomplete mess. Adding a character that has initially not been considered after 1 year or so in a game which is being made once every decade is different from locked on-disc content that you need to pay for via dlc (I look at you Capcom).
