Earlier this month, there was a rumour Nintendo had previously approached Disney about adding the Kingdom Hearts protagonist Sora to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and was rejected by the American company's Japanese branch.
Even if Disney isn't necessarily keen on the character's inclusion in Nintendo's all-star brawler, it hasn't stopped fans located in Japan from nominating Sora as their "most wanted" DLC character for the latest entry in the series. In a poll run by Inside-Games recently, the Kingdom Hearts hero was well out in front with 290 votes. The runner-up was Dante from the Devil May Cry series and the hunter from the Monster Hunter series was in third place.
While it is just a small sample, it's still interesting to see what other characters players are interested to see added to the game – even if it includes Geno and some anime heroes.

Last month, we even ran our own poll to see who should receive the next invitation. Interestingly Rayman, Waluigi, and Sora received the most votes.
