For the uninitiated this is how it works. Every weekday I'll be doing a blog on the characters that deserve a roster spot in Nintendos next character smackdown. The franchises from which I'll be taking characters can be found under the "Part 1" link. If I get good feedback, I may add or change representative characters. Characters can also be added as Assist Trophies.
- No more than 4 characters per franchise (trust me, it's a hard rule to follow through with)
- Characters have to be primarily video game characters. (I want to add Batman as much as you do)
- Characters from Nintendo will go first, followed by characters from other companies
- Characters must be major (I'm not adding Toad, or Sandshrew, or Lanky Kong. Whether a character is important enough is up to my own discression)
