So far the poll has gathered 365 responses! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the poll so far. If you haven’t taken the poll yet, please stop reading this article and take it now! The last Mega Smash Poll was able to collect 1,232 responses.
Anyway, let’s look at some preliminary responses.
30.2% of responders have completed a Mega Smash Poll before. I decided to add this question in because in the future, I’d like to compare the data of those who have completed a poll with the data of previous polls.
Most people (77%) get their Smash news from YouTube. 63% said Source Gaming, but I anticipate the number to go down after more responses are collected (the previous one had 40.8%).
So how is the Switch Shaping Up?
So far, almost 70% of responders have stated they are interested in purchasing the Nintendo Switch.
When it comes to a Smash port, it gets tricky. 43.4% said they wouldn’t be interested in a straight 1 to 1 port. However, 11% of participants said they wouldn’t be okay with an enhanced port. Quite obviously, characters and stages are the most desired type of content.
As for “which character shouldn’t come back” responses focused on clone characters, and newer characters. Characters that have been around for longer were less likely to get votes against them. The most requested cut was Dark Pit with 50.3% stating he shouldn’t come back (100 responses). Lucina was the 2nd most requested cut, 44.7% and Corrin taking the third, 33.7%.
Ice Climbers, Snake and Wolf are the three most requested veterans.
Anyway, that’s it for today. Please answer the poll if you haven’t. There’s a lot of questions I haven’t covered, because I’m afraid of influencing the data. If you have answered the poll, please share it on Twitter, Reddit, with your friends and even your grandma! The more responses that are collected the more reflective of the Smash community this data will be!
