here's the brutal truth: Geno. doesn't. matter.Sakurai had his chance to add Geno in the base roster. He didn't take it. Now Nintendo chooses the characters.
To be brutally honest, I don't think Sakurai wants Geno as much as people think. I feel like Geno is never a big enough priority for him to add over other characters he's considering, so he settles for things like Spirits and Mii costumes.
im not insulting his game or how fond people are of him but in the grand scheme of videogame legacy and history, he doesnt matter. Look at the new chaarcter inclusions in smash DLC history he'd be the only character that is all of these things: one-off character, he'd be the only nonprotagonist, he didnt redefine the industry or a genre within the industry. He's a footnote in two companies' vast library of achievements and innovations.
If Nintendo is choosing characters for DLC characters like Waluigi and Geno are likely done. Nintendo in general clearly doesn't care about Waluigi. as some people have stated that may be due to his creation coming outside of their scope and plan.
Personally, I think that freebie was terry and he already got it.I don't think Sakurai would be given a freebie character. If he did then there might be a possibility that he could pick Geno. Who knows, maybe Fighter 11 is Geno.
"niche" saber. uummm come again?A niche character like Estelle, Sakura or Saber
in nintendo eyes the request to fulfill steve, K rool, and bring everyone back should do more than enough for fan request in this game.Geno's the weird paradox. He's a massive fan request, but in the grand scheme of things, he's pretty minor. If he gets in, it's because of fan support and fan support alone. Maybe Nintendo wants to acknowledge it, maybe they're not willing to get the license for such a minor character. It could go either way.
