Quality over quantity.
While speaking to Nintendo Power, Game Designer Masahiro Sakurai argued that more characters isn't what the series needs, and went as far as to say more characters damages balance. He explained:
In terms of how that affects the next title, he said:
Each of the three previously released games have introduced 10 or more new characters per iteration. The last release, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, featured a sizeable 35 characters, several of which were borrowed from third-party games (i.e. Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid).
As fun as it was to find out who was being added to Nintendo's frantic fighting series, ensuring that the next release isn't just a copy paste with more characters is essential. The last thing Nintendo needs is another game that feels derivative.
