Bayonetta Topped Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot Votes

Bayonetta was revealed by Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai as the frontrunner in the Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot.

The ballot, which was launched by late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata earlier in the year, saw Nintendo ask the community which character they would like to see in their mascot brawler. While reminding that they couldn’t accommodate every request, fans took to social media to declare their favourite submissions and pen art to campaign for their inclusion.

That saw the Umbra Witch become the top choice in Europe and the top five in North America, with Sakurai reasoning that once they had dismissed any unrealisable entries she resulted as “the overall number one choice worldwide.”

“We asked for your opinions in the Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, Bayonetta was the number one choice in Europe!” Sakurai shared. “In North America, she was among the top five. This ranking includes all previous fighters from the series. Among the negotiable and realisable characters, Bayonetta was the overall number one choice worldwide.”

Releasing in February 2016, Bayonetta and the Umbra Clock Tower stage will be priced at £5.39 / €5.99 / $5.99 in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U or Nintendo 3DS – or both game versions together for £6.39 / €6.99 / $6.99.

  1. My question is what were the other four characters in the top five?
