Smash Poll 2012 – Semifinals

Published by Roger DiLuigi III in 3DS, Nintendo, Smash Poll, Wii U. |

Last week, we told you guys that it was time for America and Europe to stand up and vote for who should be in the next Super Smash Bros. games and you agreed. After tallying up the 118,000+ votes and the more than 8,000 write-in votes from the Quarterfinal roundwe’re finally able to announce who will be competing in our Smash Poll 2012 Semifinals!

For the Semifinals, the Top 13 characters from our Quarterfinals poll and the Top 5 most requested write-ins will be duking it out. Top 13 and Top 5, you say?! That’s right. We figured that since so many more of you came out to vote in the Quarterfinal round than we initially expected, we thought it was important to throw another combatant from both the embedded poll and the write-in ballots into the mix (turning our Top 16 Semifinals into a Top 18)!

This time around, voters can only choose 8 combatants so vote wisely. Also, keep in mind that write-in votes will no longer be accepted. The Top 8 from the Semifinals will then go on to compete in our Final Showdown (where the winner will be decided)! Voting in our Semifinals ends Sunday, July 21st at midnight. Get voting! Remember, the final result will be presented straight to the director of the upcoming games himself: Masahiro Sakurai.

PS: For those of you want to follow the daily results of the poll, follow @Rogersbase on Twitter. I’ll be tweeting out updates on who’s in the lead in each night and responding to all of your concerns and comments! You can also tweet your vote using our official hash tag: #SmashPoll2012. Spread the word and your favorite character might just make their way into the next Smash!
