When they announced DLC, I said that I was scared about Geno's chances because I though they were going to pick third party. With Joker being the first DLC, it makes me think that I was right. And Geno is just big among the Smash community.What makes you say that?
Also, I think that his spirit deconfirms him. I'm not saying that a spirit can't be a character, but I feel like Geno's spirit deconfims him, let me explain. Sakurai said that he wanted spirits to make the players feel like their favorite character is still in the game. Also, Geno's spirit is a legendary one, I don't know, to me it just seems like Sakurai said "hey look, I couldn't make Geno playable but he's still a big deal in the game". To be honest, if the spirit was a two stars spirit, I would be more confident in Geno's chances because it wouldn't feel like they wanted to make his spirit important. The fact that they made his spirit one of the strongest makes me think that they just don't have anything else for the Geno's fans.
That's not a lot of things and the character still has a lot of things going for him, we said it countless times, I'm just saying that I don't believe it anymore. And I hope that I'm ****ing wrong.
