Universe: Mii Universe
Debut: Wii Console (2006)
Gender: M or F
Affiliations: Wuhu Island
Kirby Hat: Wiimote and/or squinty cartoon eyes
Alternative Textures: Syncs with player’s Mii
Availability: Starting Fighter
Background: Mii as a concept introduced with the revealing of Nintendo’s Wii console. It was the company’s way of giving the player an identity within games and online with other players. It is a gimmick, but one that every major console has been incorporating since.
Reasoning: Too likely to appear not to include it.
Probability: Very high. It has become a staple for the company and with the inclusion of new games and new appearance modifiers, this customizable brawler is almost surely going to make it’s appearance in SSB4.
Thoughts: I don’t like the Mii concept, it is for children with the graphics and the games are designed for non-gamers. SSB is a fighting game designed for avid gamers and appeals to a different audience than the Mii games. While I like the idea of customizing characters, I think Mii would be a waste of a roster spot. I just had to include them as the likelihood is too high to ignore.
