Brawl Roster Limited?

Super Smash Brothers Brawl's character roster of thirty-five certainly seems like plenty, and it better be enough to keep you satisfied because there's no DLC coming for this one according to game creator Masahiro Sakurai.

"There are no characters that can be unlocked via connecting to WiiConnect24 or interacting in that fashion," Sakurai said when posed a question regarding the possibility of downloadable content for Brawl. "And I may be mistaken here, but the Wii doesn't have a hard drive -- it's a disc-based system -- so I don't think we'll be doing that, I don't think it's going to happen."

"Seeing the success that Brawl has had with the Wii remote being playing sideways, I don't think that there are control limitations that keep it from being ported to the DS," Sakurai said. "But I personally have no plans to do this myself. If, in the future, such a thing was to be planned, it would be up to Nintendo to decide how and when and in what way they would like to create that sort of game."

So there you have it, the roster of immortality. At least the DS version might have some newbies to the front lines.
