Smash Bros series creator Masahiro Sakurai has told Nintendo Power that Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS probably won’t feature a host of new characters, because the team want to focus on quality, rather than quantity. Sakurai says that he would rather refine the existing roster, instead of adding additional characters.
“It isn’t a matter of ‘if the next game has 50 characters, that’ll be enough.’ There is a certain charm to games that have huge casts of playable characters, but they tend to have issues with game balance and it becomes very difficult to fine-tune each character and have them all feel distinctive.
“In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible. I think a change of direction may be what’s needed.”
Of course we may still see new characters. Imo there will be new characters but if he decides to keep the character roster at what Brawls was or even up it to 50, then that would be a fine amount. Hopefully he does fine tune each character better in this game and have them all feel distinctive. Would make for a great game.

If character cuts are inevitable then I vote for R.O.B,Olimar,Toon Link, Peach and Jigglypuff 2 times cause she should been cut after Melee and replaced with Mewtwo who should have stayed
