Nintendo taking suggestions on new Super Smash Bros. characters in online ballot

If you have thoughts on characters that should be added to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, you'll soon be able to submit them to Nintendo, the company announced today during a Nintendo Direct presentation.

Nintendo is launching the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot on the game's website today. Visitors to the site can suggest their favorite video game characters from now through Oct. 3; one entry is permitted per person. Notably, the ballot isn't restricted to characters from Nintendo games. After all, non-Nintendo combatants like Sonic have appeared in multiple Smash Bros. games.

The Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot will go live after the end of today's Nintendo Direct. One new character Nintendo announced today is Lucas.

Update: You can access the ballot here.

Character Reveal: Mewtwo is coming to Super Smash Bros.
