Funimation asks for Goku in Super Smash Bros.

"When's our boy Goku going to join the fight?"


Nintendo announced last week that Super Smash Bros. will be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, with Super Mario, Link, and Inklings from Splatoon confirmed as playable characters in the game. The full list will obviously be a lot bigger, and some surprise guests are expected, such as Solid Snake, Ryu, and Bayonetta we've seen in the past.

US anime distributor Funimation also seems to have a clear idea on who should be invited to the party - Goku, from the Dragon Ball series. In fact, the company took to Twitter to share a message and a pic of Goku on the "A New Foe has Appeared" screen from Super Smash Bros. on Wii U:

"@NintendoAmerica Hey Nintendo, When's our boy Goku going to join the fight? ????"

Nintendo hasn't replied so far, so without further information we assume this is more of a desire from Funimation then a proper tease. Regardless, Switch players can already enjoy Goku on Dragon Ball: Xenoverse 2, and fighting game fans can wield his fill power in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Is Goku a character you'd love to see in the new Smash Bros.?
