Sakurai planning to “bring old characters back” in next Super Smash Bros.

With work having now begun on the next Super Smash Bros. entries, Masahiro Sakurai has begun to tease plans for new additions to the character roster.

Previously announced for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS during Nintendo’s E3 2011 presentation, development had been put on hold until Project Sora finalised work on Kid Icarus: Uprising.

“I am planning on doing my best to bring old characters back in Smash Bros,” Sakurai expressed during an interview with Cubed3. “From that perspective, I am probably in the most fortunate position in the world.”

Who would you like to see included within Super Smash Bros.?
