    I just kinda looked through images, I mentioned that in both my searches. I was bored and at the air port, so I looked at various charts. It’s not perfect, but maybe it can work as a base + it does bring up some previously unmentioned characters... Relax Alax did actually predict Joker though...

    I know, it’s weird. I admit, maybe Google images aren’t the best, I just used them as many had the huge pie charts of all their totals. When searching though, Resident Evil never came up a single time. Other big franchises didn’t either though as Tales was not present at all, Shovel Knight was...

    RelaxAlax and Alpharad would have to disagree as they both called it pretty early on. Also, Sakurai stealing UI from Persona and being a huge fan made it a bit more reasonable to believe Persona 5 would get a character. Agree.... Banjo made it apparent that popularity is a big factor, which is...

    Checking out fan ballot results to predict the next characters as Banjo seems to indicate that fan demand is still a huge factor even though Nintendo is selecting the characters/ properties. I took a look at many polls on Google Images from the ballot and after to judge popularity. I hope this...

    They probably weren’t as requested as we thought or didn’t make the cut due to a limited roster. Obviously Castlevania passed under the radar for many. Ashley was also never on any ballots and was only majorly popular leading up to the Belmonts. There is also the fact that DLC seems to be 3rd...

    I think the criteria is more broad than that, it seems to be more so a catering of long time requests and big new Nintendo icons. Obviously K Rool, Banjo, and Castlevania (Alucard was the popular one) were huge ballot picks Ridley has been popular and acknowledged since Melee, fitting the...

    Now thinking about it, why is no one mentioning Travis as he literally just had two big comebacks this year, has been requested since the Smash 4 days, and his creator is very vocal about wanting to be involved in Smash. Plus, Smash’s 3rd party history has been big on very cinematic and stylish...

    I’m not putting much stock into the costume theory. At least wait for Erdrick’s release as I’m of the belief that Summer will come with a ton of costumes that aren’t just Square based. I think Joker only got Sega due to priority and there not really needing to be much to come with him. Obviously...

    Agreed, he’d add a sharp contrast to the rest of the fighters and be a huge addition in general. He just didn’t have much ballot pull until recently. I’d add Rayman to that list if we are counting Elma who has a spirit Honestly, I hope our next two picks are new 3rd parties. I love Capcom...

    I don’t know, but I do think there has to be one character that is Simple and Clean and Dearly Beloved. I believe Bethesda will be getting a fighter, likely the Doom Slayer, as I think Nintendo will want to throw in at least one more 3rd party company into the mix outside of Microsoft/ Rare...

    Well Octopath is a big Switch exclusive, so it seems ripe to get a costume. I don’t play Square’s titles, so I cab’t Say what it’ll be. I can definitely see Mumbo, but I doubt we’ll get much Final Fantasy content judging by the past.

    Yeah, true. Mii Costumes are sure to be there, but what ones do you believe will go along with the characters? I’m thinking Summer costumes: Geno Chocobo Hat Slime Hat Octopath? Fall costumes: Master Chief Steve Battle Toads Conker

    Well no Steve, Kinda bummed TBH. Banjo and the Dragon Quest Hero look fun though, but I am disappointed by the lack of Mii outfits so far. As of now we have two characters left. I still suspect Doom to be a franchise represented in December not going to lie.

    Erdrick would do fine, even if he isn’t known, DQ is, and the unique art style of the series will carry his reveal and get the point across that this is a DQ character.

    Assuming Banjo and not Steve To be fair, Smash is the same series that ended their last DLC with Bayonetta, a relatively small franchise, and Corrin who was barely known as a character in any territory. Them making interesting choices is nothing new.
