I actually agree with this. Compared to other peo in the gaming industry, Sakurai is fairly young and modern. I think he is well aware of what the public is expecting

Yes, the one-off mage character that Square Enix keeps in their basement would be given to Nintendo long before their Disney-side poster boy. Besides most vocal =/= most popular. Geno is an obscure character, in relation to Sora.

SSB is about fan-service though.

The only fully handheld game that has gotten characters in SSB is Pokemon. Nothing else. So I don't see KH happening.

Even if I were to accept your idea that Smash is about fanservice, Kingdom Hearts has WAY more fans than Super Mario RPG. Again, it's one game vs. eight. Not only that, but one game on one console vs. eight games spanning eight different consoles, two of which just so happen to be PS2 and Nintendo DS, the two most popular gaming systems of all time. If Sakurai wanted a Square character, Sora would be the first one on the list. Geno wouldn't follow for some time, regardless of what the surprisingly loud fanbase would have you believe. In terms of popularity and fandom, Kingdom Hearts trumps Super Mario RPG by so much, it hurts.

Ice Climbers were only in one game over a decade ago and are pretty obscure, yet they showed up playable in 2 smash games.
If we we're to add characters based on the amount of fans or popularity, let's start adding the likes of Master Chief, Harry Mason, Simon Belemont, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Pac-Man, or some generic character from Call of Duty, among dozens of other franchises.
Let's also not forget where the major Kingdom Hearts titles are on. Kingdom Hearts 1-2: PS2, HD Remakes of said games: PS3, not even the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3 is being considered on the Wii U, but on the other two systems. Also it's not like Nintendo would factor a console's success into picking a character anyways, especially the PS2.

Even if we we're to forget all of that (cause of course, Solid Snake managed to be in Brawl), Sora couldn't be put in Smash 4 because to add him would mean having to put in all sorts of Disney properties, and unlike Solid Snake where they could trade guns for explosives, there is no way one could remove all the Disney influence from the franchise and keep the same feel of the character.

So if there was to be a Sqaure representative, it would have to be someone from Final Fantasy, however the main entries don't have much history on nintendo systems, so they don't have much to work with outside of something generic like a dark mage, So with that in mind, the best they could do with Square would be a Bravely Default character, but since that released only recently this year... yeah there's nothing much left.

Why do people forget about Dragon Quest? Every single main entry besides 8 has been on Nintendo platforms, and the last several remakes, spin-offs, and main entries have all been Nintendo exclusives.

Given there are ten main games in the series, and numerous spin-offs, there is tons of content that Smash could draw from, The series is insanely popular in Japan, and is gaining popularity in the west, and all of the main entries besides VII and VIII hav all debuted on Nintendo platforms, bascially making Dragon Quest the RPG series is pretty much exclusive to Nintendo's platforms.

I have nothing against Geno(although Mellow would get my vote), but he's wasted as Square Enix's third-party rep. In the end, he would just be another Mario character, and would defeat the point of guest characters which is pretty allowing a third-party companies characters to fight against Nintendo's All-Stars. A Square Enix character like one of the heroes from Dragon Quest, Cecil, Terra, or even Black Mage should get a spot like that, not another Mario character whose only ties to SE is a single role in a Mario RPG that came out on the SNES, and would hardly represent Square Enix.

My vote is to make one of the heroes from Dragon Quest Square Enix's rep for Smash Bros.

Yoshi hasn't been revealed.....

SO WHAT?!?!?!?!

I never actually cared about Yoshi in the Smash series, he was always one of my worst in all three.......

Hiwever, everybody loves playing as or with him (depending the game you play), so he's there, Yoshi fans, but Sakurai decided not to hatch the green dino.....yet

@MegaStoneSmash91: I think it's from Tomodachi Collection, which I think is yet another possible hint at Miis being playable. We have stages for Find Mii II and Wuhu Island and now this. Miis have to be playing some sort of role in these games.

A "Create Your Smasher" option than doesn't overpower Miis would be nice

Another 3ds stage from a Japanese developed game? Bring it on! Just goes to show that smash and Sakurai are not predictable.

@SG9000: That's mainly why I want Miis to be playable; the customization.

If they're not playable, then they could be background characters in that stage, but only time will tell.

Funny, I thought Sakurai would tease us with Yoshi-related stuff (a trophy, for example)

But a Tomodachi stage on the release date of Yoshi's New Island was REALLY unexpected!!!! Sakurai, you teasing genius :)

If there's one thing Sakurai must dislike other than spoilers, it's predictability. With almost everyone assuming Yoshi would be revealed today, Sakurai might have reasoned that if he did reveal Yoshi, it would be expected news and not be a surprise like what Sakurai likes to do. After all, he did choose Wii Fit Trainer to be a newcomer, a character no one would predict or expect.

I guess what made Diddy a western exception was that Tropical Freeze was already out in Japan, whereas Yoshi's New Island has yet to come out in Japan. With the Japanese release of Tropical Freeze past, Sakurai had to use another convention to reveal Diddy and so used the western release.

If Miis were playable, I'm pretty sure they'll incorporate things from all the games they've been in. A side special would be rolling bowling ball I guess.The things Miis have are also seen in other characters.

Wii Sports:
Baseball Bat - Ness
Tennis Racket/Golf Club - Peach
Boxing Gloves - Little Mac?
(yes, I know there are other games but this is an example)

I guess this is where customization comes in at some point.

You know, whenever a character appears in Smash, the next game that comes out, they want that previous character included and they will defend the hell out of them. Even if they appeared only once. People wanted Roy in Brawl, but he wasn't. People wanted Mewtwo in Brawl, but wasn't. People even wanted Dr. Mario in Brawl, but he wasn't. What I see is that no matter how much you defend a character so that they won't get booted, it still doesn't matter. People wanted Waluigi to be playable. He returned... as an assist.

No matter what I see, people can never be, and will never be satisfied with the character roster until they learn to accept it as it is.

Everyone, please learn that.

Even though Mewtwo and Roy were supposed to be in Brawl but got cut due to time constraints...

Of course Little Mac is correct but in terms what you are trying to say Villager is the better choice. :)

@Blast: Correction, he is not revealing characters on their western release dates. But as I stated before, I guess Diddy was probably an exception because Tropical Freeze had already been out in Japan, whereas Yoshi's New Island has yet to.

All this takes is some good ole patience.
