Thirsty Developers Pushing Their Characters for Super Smash Bros.

1 of 11

The Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot was announced during Nintendo's last Direct presentation and ever since then, we've heard a lot of internet-shouting as to who deserves a spot. Be it best friends, worst enemies, or gaming grandmas, everybody has been giving their opinions, and game developers are no exception. 

Here is a collection of video game developers, both big and small, who are actively promoting their characters for inclusion in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.

Playtonic Games is currently working on Project Ukulele, the spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie. Still, the ex-Rare development team is actively rooting for the bear and the bird as DLC. 

Xbox boss, Phil Spencer, is with Playtonic (and about half of the Internet in wanting Banjo and Kazooie up against Mario and Sonic in Smash.

Last, and certainly least likely, AdventureQuest developer, Artix Entertainment, wants to pit Artix up against Nintendo's finest. 

But, who do you want?
Everyone gets a vote (or two), and mine are going towards Banjo-Kazooie and a Splatoon Inkling, but Bomberman, Spyro, Crash, Dig-Dug, and Geno were close 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th choices.

Let us know your vote in the comments below, even if you voted for more than one. Don't worry, we're pretty good at keeping secrets. Unless you voted for Goku, then we're telling!
