Who is Jacket?

Jacket is the main protagonist of Hotline Miami, a fast-paced brutal 2D Top Down Action Game developed by Dennaton Games and published by Devolver Digital. This game takes place in Miami set in 1989; Jacket encounters 3 individuals in animal masks: Don Juan, Ramsus, and Richard. Each of them act differently towards Jacket. Don Juan comforts Jacket but wants to keep him from remembering the things he's done, and Ramsus is hostile towards Jacket showing disgust by his mere presence. Richard, on the other hand, tells Jacket they've met before and asks him to remember the day April 3. After the encounter, the game cuts to the date April 3, and Jacket receives a cryptic phone call with an address on it, a rooster mask, and a newspaper with the message "...we'll be watching you". Throughout the game, Jacket is ordered to kill groups of Russian mobsters for an unknown cause with no remorse.

Why Jacket?

Hotline Miami is 1 of Devolver Digital's most well known and well received franchise to date and perhaps the biggest influence to many of Devolver's other published titles like Katana ZERO, My Friend Pedro, RUINER, etc. Though the top down perspective, the gruesome violence, and the trial-and-error gameplay of Hotline Miami may not be feasible with a game like Smash, the game has a visual style unlike any stage currently in Smash does. The music in both games are also killer with tracks like Hydrogen, Crystals, Hotline, Miami, It's Safe Now, Divide, In The Face of Evil, Sexualizer, Roller Mobster, Run, Future Club, Dust, and so much more. Will Sakurai call upon Jacket to join the Smash roster?

I am totally down for Jacket. I just beat Hotline Miami, and it's a super cool game. Seeing Jacket bring all his weapons to the game would be cool, and having the Biker as an alternate costume would also be sick.
