#Smash4 I just tried something because I was curious, and it has some interesting results. I was seeing how many characters from each game (or their obvious replacements) made it into the next game. 64 introduced 12, Melee introduced 13, 10 of which went on to Brawl, and Brawl introduced 13 as well. It would seem that Smash 4, if following the pattern would have around 13 new additions. If we count the 3 revealed and the obvious Lucario replacement, we have 9 characters or so to go.
