Universe: Ice Climber
Debut: Ice Climber (1985)
Aliases: Popo and Nana
Availability: Starting fighter
Background: Popo and Nana are children that scale treacherous mountains to retrieve vegetables stolen by a condor.
Reasoning: They have been around since Melee and are fun to play!
Probability: Mediocre at this point, given the development team was apparently having trouble getting 4 sets of Ice Climbers battling at once on the 3DS.
Thoughts: Ice Climbers are my main and I would hate to see them removed. I always thought the limitations to the 3DS will bastardize the Wii U version, since Sakurai wants them to have the same roster amongst other things. If the 3DS version is the reason for their removal I will personally shove a large mallet up Sakurai’s primped Japanese ass.
