Hikari was considered, actually. It was somewhat slapped together because I didn't have the real movesets/playstyles down for most of the characters, though I think she'd work really well. There's no "japanese girl" in there anyways, so why not? She fills that role nicely.
And the final bosses are "Misses Hand" and "Madame Hand." Madame Hand, being a... ahem... madame... is the "crazy" one.
EDIT: I am currently sketching characters for this particular game idea. Not sure if I want to go the "massive character portrait" route and do them basically Brawl style, or go with a much smaller "cast" picture and draw them in my own style. I might do a combination of both.
Oh, and I added Hikari. I came up with a FANTASTIC moveset for her. At least... in my mind
I've been working on my Smash Sisters idea some more, guys. I've got a beefier roster that now includes a few more surprising faces: a Koopaling (I bet it's Lemmy!), an armored beauty, a brand new duo, and an AU version of an existing character. Hmm...
Also, I think the game's Adventure Mode should work more like the one in Melee. There would be cutscenes a la SSE, but the characters are all available from the getgo and the stages are very much "set" with not too many hidden paths and the like. Each character has her own intro story and ending cutscene, so the Adventure Mode is unique to each character in some respect. They end with their own "rival" character depending on the story, then end on the archvillainess of the game: Veran. After Veran comes the fight with the boss of Adventure Mode. Veran takes the role of Ganon from SSE, with Palutena appearing as the central good "force" of the game. Both her and Veran are "boss characters" done SNK style: they are hard as hell to unlock, but you DO fight them in the regular Mode and when you play as them they have their own unique "spin" on Adventure Mode.
What do you guys think of a few "deviants" entering the fray? SNK Girl Fighter had "Ms. X" who was really Iori in drag. I was thinking something like... "Ms. L," maybe "Captain Falconette"?
Well, I was telling GG the other night that Smash Sisters would have to look drastically different. It would still play like Smash, but the graphics would be super-deformed FFIII/IV DS style with a "cutesy fighter" feel, similar to Pocket Fighter or Puzzle Fighter. It would definitely play up the girliness.
Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!

Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
