Huzzah, I can continue to smash face with Dedede. I was wondering whether or not he would make a return -- I guess Nintendo didn't want Kirby to be alone on the roster. Now I'm just hoping they'll replace Meta-Knight.

Why would they replace meta knight and why would you want that. Meta knight is quite an iconic character and just because he was unbalanced in brawl does not mean he will be in the new one as characters always go through numerous tweaks and adjustments.

Meta Knight is actually a very cool character to have, except they made him absolutely broken in Brawl. Dedede was also pretty good, but mostly just because of his chain-grabbing capabilities.

I still don't see why they ever need to -remove- characters. Maybe if it was a character like Snake who is not Nintendo-specific, but main Nintendo characters like Dedede should definitely still be in the game.

Only reason people would want MK out is because he was so broken in Brawl. It's not like that will happen again.

Glad to see Dedede make his return. I know the newest Kirby game is coming out shortly in Japan so this is their way to get prepared. Dedede is pretty iconic in the Kirby series anyways.

Nice to see Dedede return. Hopefully, this time, he lost some weight. lol

Also, a quick little observation I made: in the Smash Miiverse, if you check his moveset, it looks like the superpowered, mega jet hammer has replaced his side B, the Waddle Dee toss. Does this mean Bandanna Dee is in?

DON'T DROP THAT DEDEDE!

Anyway, I never liked going against MK in Brawl. But seeing Dedede online is always interesting.

I really love dededes expressions,he seemed kinda too nice in brawl,because he always had this happy look on his face

the reason for that is simple:
development time.

Every character has to be programmed and balanced(or at least they should try to balance them)
Lets say they are almost finished with the game and have only enough time left for a single character and they have neither finished meta knight or ganondorf,then one of them had to be cut or the release would be delayed(and since there is an almost endless amount of possible characters,it is clear that they can't simply add every character before release)
(keep in mind this is just an example i think meta knight and ganondorf are some of the most likely characters that will return)
Also there should be a certain balance between series,if the mario series has less characters than for example pokemon,they would basically say "we care more for pokemon than mario"


Of course the more important characters are going to be programmed first,so that the more important characters won't miss the deadline,but less important characters might be cut because others had priority

Massive improvement in regards to the facial expressions. King Dedede has a personality now.

I'm okay with this. I never used Dedede so this doesnt affect me too much, but its cool that we're seeing the return of a Kirby character.

Ahh yeah King Dedede is back, one of my favorite non-serious characters to use besides Ganondorf.
