There we have it, this topic is back in the spotlight. Added you to the list too mate.Time to revive this thread!
I have been listening and reading alot of speculation for this new smash game, and after some serious thought, i think Lana may have a great chance.
Hyrule Warriors Legend came out in early 2016(2 months or so post corrin and bayo dlc) and smash switch is speculated to have started around the summer of 2016(possible 1st a port than a legitimate game).
Considering the amount of games that came out and have not been represented by smash brother wii u &3ds, i feel that a hyrule warriors rep is a huge likelyhood of happening.
Reading back a few pages(lol at master bike and swotch port), i dont think the situation of rights for the characters are a huge problem. Koei and Nintendo are working together more closely than before, and i dont think it would be a problem if sakurai asked for a hyrule warriors rep in smash since it is a Huge game for the wii u(tho if koei said no/ sakurai wanted ryu H. Instead than that puts my thinking null).... Theres also the idea that the charavters arent owned by nintendo but sakurai didnt care and asked for them anyway(who would say not to him NOW).
Anywho i support Lana, while linkle and impa may be her biggest competition, i think sakurai will choose Lana as we do need more mage characters in this game along with more zelda rep( this coming from a guy that thinks 2 zelda reps, 1 warriors and 1 in canon to the main series, are happening).
Her moveset is interesting with lighting balls and walls(and i do think the deku leaf and portal will appear in her moveset). And her alts can be the skull kid and white witch attair.
Anywho, wanted to make this thread feel more alive since the news have been slow.
And you just may be right, that would be the perfect timing for some Hyrule Warriors content since it came just it time before Smash switch event started being a thing. We could get things like a stage with music and trophies, I will still hold my breath for at least one HW character (preferably Lana).
You are right that Tecmo's close relationship with Nintendo puts her in a good spot. Sakurai would still have to approach them either way for a Fatal Frame trophy (or more) since it's a fairly prominent series they co-own with Nintendo. This is related because it gives us more of a shot as far as Hyrule Warriors content too or even a character. Not only she has competition with a Zelda character, but other Tecmo characters like Ryu Hayabusa and a Fatal Frame rep.
Her moveset definitely speaks for itself. That's why she would make an excellent character. Elemental magic and manipulation with magical walls/blocks. If that doesn't scream excitement, then I don't know what will.
