That's honestly what I think.Thinking about it, it does seem like this pass is trying to skew towards being a little bit more marketable to children. Being completely honest, none of the DLC fighters from FP1 would be likely to get a kid excited based on identity alone:
Compare this to Fighter's Pass 2, where both Steve and Min Min are from games that are:
- Joker is a character from an M-rated game that can only be played on a different console, which isn't a problem for adults with control over their disposable income but could be problematic for a child reliant on their parents.
- Hero is a character from a T-rated game with alts from games that were released well over a decade ago.
- Banjo is a character from a game double their age that can only be played on a different console.
- Terry is a character from a series of games that were most relevant two decades before they were born.
- Byleth is a character from a T-rated game with slow, tactical gameplay, something that may turn some kids off.
Now, whether we will see this trend continue throughout the entire pass is definitely up in the air. I'd be somewhat surprised if we didn't get a more retro character or a character from a game rated T or higher. However, it does seem like characters with some appeal to children may be worth keeping an eye on.
- Rated E10 (which, honestly, may as well just be E nowadays, given how easy it is to get this rating and how little attention people actually pay towards it).
- Released semi-recently and still have some level of cultural relevancy.
- Can be easily accessed on the Switch.
- Have gameplay that was designed around or would appeal to children.
