Overview

Smash Bros Fighter Ballot is an online poll event launched by Nintendo to allow the fans of Super Smash Bros. to nominate a new character for inclusion as downloadable content (DLC) in the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Since its launch on April 1st, 2015, fans have shared screen shots of their ballot entries for a variety of characters and humorous explanations as to why they should be featured as a DLC character in the game.

Background

On April 1st, 2015, Nintendo Direct introduced two new official DLC characters for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U titles, Mewtwo (Pokemon) and Lucas (Mother), along with the announcement of an online write-in voting event for fans to recommend a new character to be included as a DLC characters in the game[2]. Despite its launch coinciding with April Fool's Day, the poll was soon confirmed as a genuine event by a number of video game news sites. According to Nintendo, the poll will remain open until October 3rd, 2015.



Notable Developments

The site simply acts as a questionnaire that asks the user four basic questions: what is their gender, who is the character they are voting for, which game are they from, and what reasons could the user have for voting for said character. Once all of these questions have been filled up, the user may press confirm so their ballot may be accounted for.
