The DLC for Super Smash Bros. 4 has finally drawn to a close, and it brought with it fighters both old and new. Interestingly enough, one of the Mii Fighter costumes that got added was based on Geno, the popular character from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. While this was no doubt a welcome inclusion for many, it seems that Geno could've had a much larger role in the game.
The latest issue of Nintendo Dream included a fairly lengthy interview with Masahiro Sakurai, and one question was related to Geno. Sakurai mentioned how he would've liked to have had Geno appear as a fighter in Smash 4, and even Brawl, but it unfortunately never happened. The specific reason for why he didn't quite make it aren't made clear, but it still makes one wonder if Geno could make it into a potential Smash 5.
What do you think? Would you have liked Geno as a character? Do you think he could appear as a fighter in a future Smash game? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
