TBH I think a lot of people in this thread are on the right track. We've got a short list of companies/franchises that are very likely, but discussion is going to stagnate until we get something a bit more definitive, which isnt going to happen till at least Hero drops.I could be completely wrong, but to be honest a lot of reasoning for why “Capcom and Namco won’t get the final picks” screams something at me like, “Ken and Incineroar are lame final picks, so it can’t be the last two!”
I don’t know. I’ve been pretty spot on for this game (because of inside info partially, yes, with both Box theory and Grinch), but the recent expectation of Crash largely upshot after Banjo, and suddenly for some folks anything other than Capcom is getting a pick, despite the many series from Capcom completely dwarfing the significance of many of those series suggested.
A ton of people are dismissing Capcom and Namco getting another pick each to close out the pass, but I get a feeling it’s more of “Nah, if Banjo got in then my pick definitely will too.”
Not to say anybody is wrong to think that, but it really makes me think of past instances where the fanbase gets riled up with unchecked expectations, and then gets pissed that it didn’t turn out the way they wanted.
I’m not saying Mii Theory is the be all end all, and it hasn’t been given enough credit to be considered that just yet. However, I think some folks are dismissing it because it’s not what they want.
Be careful with that. That’s all i’m saying.
Even though, really, Capcom and Namco have excellent characters to choose from like stuff from Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Tekken, Tales, etc. So many good options my dudes.
Anyone discounting a character from Bamco, Capcom, Toei, Activision, Bethesda or Ubisoft for anything more than personal distaste is being influenced by personal biases.
Spyro was my jam in the 90s. It's why I'd prefer him over Crash. But there are so many franchises with deeper Nintendo ties that I'd want to get in over either first. But discounting Activision because of that as just gut feel would be wrong.
