On April 1st, Nintendo released their latest Nintendo Direct and announced that players would now be able to vote on who they’d like to see added next to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. But this was no April Fool’s – Nintendo soon posted an official Smash Bros. Ballot on their website with four simple questions: your gender, what character you’re voting for, the title of the game that that character appears in, and your reason why that character should become a fighter.

Let’s take a look at some of the more important announcements, and the women featured in them.
