    • Thanks for letting me try
      This was a fun event and I can’t wait to do more. I just received a smash bros game in the mail from my cousin from Japan so I’m happy

  1. I am excited to see robin in smash bros 4 because I have been a fan of fire emblem awakening and I loved the game play with the main character robin. He is a great player and led to me trying to play every single fire emblem game and I loved every one but robin is the best main character

  2. I’m excited to see Shulk because I’ve never played Xenoblade chronicles and I want to see how he plays out in the battlefield…

  3. The veteran I want to see the most in action is Dr. Mario. I know he’s just a clone of Mario, but I grew up on Super Smash Bros. Melee, and the fact that Sakurai is bringing back Mario’s Melee moves is truly a great moment for me.

    The newcomer I want to see the most in action is Bowser Jr., Shulk in a close second. Bowser Jr. seems to be a relatively fast character with powerful smash attacks, but that’a not even the best part of his inclusion. Now that there are 8 color swaps for each character, Sakurai was able to include the Koopalings in the battle! I know I’m going to have a lot of fun with Bowser Jr. as he is one of the most unique characters I’ve seen in the Smash Bros. series.

  4. I’m most excited to see Robin in action because I think the different types of moves he can use will be very interesting.

  5. I’m confused, it says “we will randomly select and announce one (1) winner on Thursday, October 2nd via our social network streams.”, but then in the rules, it states “Winner announced on Friday, June 6th via Google+, Twitter, and Facebook”

    So which date are you announcing the winner? October 2nd, 2014 or June 6th, 2015?

  6. I’m excited to use bowser jr in the new super smash bros. His moves look very cool and strong, especially his smash attacks. I also like how you can play as the koopalings as an alt(I’ll be using Morton!)
