    hey guys, this is kinda like a poll to see who thinks what about the numbers of characters. below i have a table indicating a number of characters in the game and how many people think this is true. check back often to see how many people voted. simply post what # of players there will be (only include 1 number, not 30-70 for example)

    (red= 0-2 votes)
    (orange= 3-5 votes)
    (green= 6-8 votes)
    (pink= 9-11 votes)
    (gray= 12+ votes)


    CHARACTERS (people voted for)

    20-23 (0)
    24-27 (0)
    28-30 (2)
    31-35 (2)
    36-39 (2)
    40-44 (9)
    45-49 (1)
    50-53 (4)
    54-57 (0)
    58-62 (1)
    63-66 (0)

    yours has been added. by the way, if you really think there's going to be about 50 characters then i'd think that all melee characters will return.

    40. I doubt that they'd go as high as 50 but we're already so close to 30 characters and we've got so much time before the release of the game I think it'll be about 40. Anyone have an average on how many days between playable character updates?

    i personally think that there's going to be about 40, but since i created this thread, i'm not allowed voting.

    oh and to awnser druidan's question, i'd say that about 8-10 days is the average for days to wait for a new character.

    52.


    -all ssbm characters (24)
    -newcomers already revealed (7)
    -few necomers from mario and zelda series (4)
    -old school characters such as pit or mr. game & watch (5)
    -sonic, another starfox character and 1-3 other pkmn (4)
    -maybe a new unexpected and just-made for brawl (1)


    it brings it to about 45 but i'm sure they could cram a bit more in there.

    This is a possibilty. It would be interesting if they created a character for Brawl. Somebody that makes their first appearance in brawl to see how he does. A story could be later made for him and he could get his own game or something.

    On Topic - 40-45

    i agree with boxworthy, mingus and sovieto.

    there will probably be tails, knuckles, banjo, a customizable character (aka: mii), slippey and geodude too.

    There are 73 days till SSBB comes out. If a new character is revealed approximately every 10 days then there are at least 7 more characters that will be revealed by the release date. So far there are 20 revealed characters.

    Assuming Captain Falcon, Game&Watch, Mewtwo, Ness(at least 1 earthbound/mother character), Ganondorf, Luigi, Marth (or Roy, or both) and Jigglypuff all return (because hey all have unique move-sets or distinct capabilities for unique movesets, or are icons for their series (aka Luigi, Ganondorf), then combined with the revealed characters there are at least 28-29 characters. If you insist on bringing back all of the clones with new move-sets then it pushes the number to 33.

    Now let's add 1 more 3rd party character, as there will almost certainly be at least 1 more (though hopefully more). The number then climbs up to 34.

    Already there are many more character possibilities than the 7 more character updates can cover. So we can assume 1 of 3 things.

    1. There are going to be several melee members dropped for Brawl and little-to-no new(to Brawl) character updates.
    Rebuttal to 1: "We're so far away from the release date, to stop showcasing new(to Brawl) characters at this point would be like poring water on the hype for the game. It's not gonna put it out, but it might slow the momentum down. Furthermore, what good does it do Nintendo to show its entire hand at the beginning? Why not save snake, meta knight, wario and pit for later updates? Surely they must have more surprises for us."

    2. We're going to see the number of character reveals each week increase drastically.
    Rebuttal to number 2: "It breaks the general rythm of the reveals. It also shows too much of Nintendo's hand too swiftly. What happens to the hype and wonder if all of the characters are revealed before the launch?"

    3. We will see the proposed 7 more approximate character updates, and then on the week leading up to the release we'll get some major bomb-shells in the form of character updates, saving the highest hype characters (sonic? maybe?) for last.

    I have no effective rebuttal for 3, as it's the view I'm taking on the matter ....>.>.....<.<.....

    if the website is preparing to show all of the updates of melee characters then the only new character we can expect near the release is sonic. luigi, jigglypuff, ness and maybe ganondorf are the only ones that won't be unlockable in brawl from melee. if it is true that the site didn't or wont reveal any unlockable characters then there's room for newcomers to be announced a bit later.
