Shadow the Hedgehog as a playable character in Super Smash Brothers for Nintendo Switch

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!

After the trailer for a new Smash Brothers game, it is obvious that one of the first things that people think about is the character roster. We the undersigned firmly believe that Shadow the Hedgehog would make a fantastic addition to the Super Smash Brothers franchise as a playable character. Since his entrance to the Sonic series in Sonic Adventure 2, Shadow has stolen the spotlight and his popularity is 2nd only to Sonic himself. He is also the only other Sonic character that has gotten his own game, "Shadow the Hedgehog." With such popularity it is obvious that he is a candidate for being added into the new Smash. He has starred as an assist trophy for the previous two titles in the series and we believe that being a playable character is more fitting for him. He has one of the largest fanbases in video game history and we are sure that if he is included it will drive sales up because he is such a fan favorite. Sonic the Hedgehog has been Mario's rival since his debut in the 90's and unfortunately Sonic is the only character in the Sonic franchise that has been playable in Super Smash Brothers to this point. We sincerely believe that it is in the series' best interests if Shadow is included as a playable character in the new installment of the franchise. He was playable and had his own downloadable content in the latest Sonic the Hedgehog game, "Sonic Forces." Shadow the Hedgehog would be one of the easiest characters to put into Smash from a rights perspective as Sonic and Shadow have both been in the previous two Smash games and multiple other games on Nintendo products. We will not discuss moveset as Shadow has plenty of powers and abilities even seen in his assist trophy from the last two games. We put our trust in the developers to decide what works best for the game but he certainly could bring a dynamic, fast paced, and unique play style to the roster. After all, who wouldn't want to play as the Ultimate Lifeform? Some of us have been waiting for Shadow to be in Smash since childhood, and we hope to see it fulfilled in this installment of Super Smash Brothers.
