The space furry team has been well represented, with Fox since the first installment, then Falco in Melee and Wolf in Brawl. Sadly, we got nothing new in Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U, even losing Wolf.
This franchise has suffered not just one “bad” Smash habit, but two. Clones (or semi-clones, or characters heavily made from recycled assets) in SSB Melee and SSB Brawl, and cut characters that don’t return. So, is this the chance to get different characters or at least different archetypes?
Falco: To differentiate him even more, he could become a more vertical character, like in Melee, upgrading his great aerial movement with third jump, don’t forget that he is a bird. He also could get a second blaster, like in the Subspace Emissary cut scenes and could shoot them diagonally in the air to inflict more gimping pressure to his grounded opponents. And for the love of God, give him an Arwing as his Final Smash.
Wolf: He wasn’t a strictly “CLONE” before, but if he comes back, he need more tools to clean his name. Like some heavy artillery based on the Wolfen projectiles (Wave beams or Zapper) from Star Fox Command, quick dashes like the “lightning tornado” from Star Fox Zero, and so on. He could call his team mates for his Final Smash, using a reflector to deflect the incoming attacks from his comrades.
Krystal: The easier option is to give her back the magic staff from Star Fox Adventures with the abilities to shoot fire projectiles, ice air blasts, earthquakes and even a flight boost. This will make her an all-around character with some good range in hand to hand combat. Too bad that Star Fox Zero erased her of the continuity… Or maybe that game didn’t happen…. Only time will tell.
Slippy: The slippery engineer is known for being a bit annoying, and if he gets a spot in Smash, he will have to defend for himself. And no better way that using top notch tech, like the BlueMarine homing torpedoes (StarFox 64), or setting sentries (StarFox Guard), but with limited ammo. And use the Gyrowing as his Final Smash… or just cry for help.
See you next time.
