Point is there's zero proper evidence they're confirmed dead in the water. The theory doesn't hold up at all as a good point. It's an okay theory, but patterns don't make it true. The point behind them were literally a reworking of Trophies, after all. Due to time constraints, etc. Completely ignore over 1300 choices due to an arbitrary picture is kind of silly. Especially when all they need to do is change the filename or display name at best and boom, instant character Spirit. I mean, obviously they can't just blatantly change the name without potential for tiny errors/bugs to come up in the game, but this isn't that hard to fix compared to outright gameplay fixes. There might be more important stuff to consider, but not because they're a glorified Trophy in itself.After the first 3 characters being from series with 0 presence in the game, as well as the fact that they bring their own spirits, I would be very surprised to see any “spirit promotions” on the Pass.
Well, they might've been Legendary without Sakurai saying so. It's mainly noted he just removed some, but I'm sure he added a few.Whilst I'm sure they ultimately don't mean much, looking through the list of 4* Primary Spirits is a who's who of 1st Party speculation. Obviously some characters like Dixie and Isaac are evolved versions (and Shadow for that matter). But I did enjoy that it proves that Sakurai is very much aware of who the most popular character requests are and at least threw fans a bone in making them Legendary.
