It may seem cliché but I would LOVE to see Skull Kid in the next Super Smash Bros. game (presumably on the WII U). I grew up with the likes of Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, so it goes without saying that I’m a huge fan of the characters from that legendary era of gaming. It would be amazing to add a new Legend of Zelda character to SSB‘s franchise, especially the likes of the character who tormented us all in Majora’s Mask. It’s pretty farfetched, but who knows…maybe Nintendo will cater to the needs of their older generation of gamers for once.
I’m not quite sure how Skull Kid would be implemented into the series as a character regarding his move sets and what not, but I think everyone would love to see that sadistic moon crashing down on a stage as his final smash. I get stoked just thinking about it. Another alternative would be for Skull Kid to put on Majora’s Mask as his final smash. There are a variety of effects this could have, but in short it would probably make him more powerful for a short period of time. Personally, I’d like to see him wearing the mask at all times, but that’s just me.
Although we can dream, it isn’t likely that we’ll get our dream cast of characters in the next installment of Super Smash Bros. When it all comes down to it, Nintendo is a progressive company that evolves based on the generation and unfortunately our generation has had its time to shine. We were involved in a few of the best decades of gaming to date, but now it’s time for the next generation to take over. What I’m saying is that it’s far more likely for Nintendo to put a character like Ghirahim in the next game to appease the younger generation of Legend of Zelda fans. It’s not necessarily fair to the older fans, but it is very smart from a sales standpoint. But hey, we can dream can’t we?
