Oh wow , I just realized your list is basically the same as mine. Or at least the first half of it. But the second half are also characters I thought about (barring Masked Man tbh) but didn't quite make the cut for me. The only Nintendo character that is missing for me from your list is Captain Syrup, but she's a fairly niche pick tbh lol so that's no surprise really. Also yay Bomberman! =DMy top 10 (which I'm sure it won't match at all with the new dlc characters). I don't have any specific order, except Isaac, which is the one I care most.
I don't think I have to say anything about him. Great potential moveset, good design (but I would like more a mix with his DD design in terms of clothes).
2) Andy/Any AW character.
I hate the strategic games but I comprehend the legacy Wars has. Even if the series has never sold a lot (none of this entries hit 1 million), it was active for 20 years, even if half of them were generic entries. IMO, it deserves a spot (and a new opportunity). Also, I visualize him as a minion control character, with using NES soldiers as a special attacks, like King Dedede in Brawl, but with more control and more useful.
3) Dixie Kong.
Using Diddy Kong as a model, she can be easy to do. She could be an easy semi-clone, changing the special attacks to be more original and relatable of her appearances.
4) Any Zelda character.
Just anyone. Ideally, I would love one Zora (Mipha) and one Goron (Idc which one) just to represent the most important races in Zelda games. But if they included Skull Kid or Vaati, I wouldn't complain at all.
The only 3rd party character I wouldn't raise my eyebrows and it's feasible to be a playable character. I'm not fond of its games, but Bomberman is a series heavily associated with Nintendo since it was born.
6) Any Rhythm Heaven character, except Karate joe.
Like Golden Sun (well, even more I think), Rhythm Heaven/Paradise has a strong presence as a Nintendo franchise and has been successful with great sales.
I would enjoy more Chorus kids, Marshall or Rhythm girl, and a rhythm attack character would be interesting (but it would be horribly in the current net). Karate Joe, apart from being ugly visually, it could be a brawler character, which there're a lot of them in the current roster.
7) Ray MK
Mii Gunner is basically him in terms of moveset lol Also, I like his design.
8) Masked Man (Mother)
Yeah, a strange pick. But I don't like Porky at all and MM would be another villain and it could be an interesting character combining PSI energy, a light sword and a pistol/cannon beam.
9) Elma - Rex with Pyra/Mythra.
A character with a double swords with guns with a great mobility? Yes, please (though it would be propably like Bayonetta) I prefer Elma over Rex with Pyra and Mythra, but the other ones are also cool and I wouldn't complain about it if they included. Also, they're more recent and more popular.
10) Any ARMS character.
The last one. A "pure fighting" game (even with its gimmicks) which was one thing Nintendo lacked since... Joy Mech Fight? Normally I would agree with Spring Man, but Min Min or Twintelle would be better, because I find Spring Man a bit boring, design wise. But he's the mascot, so I guess he would be first, with Ribbon Girl as an echo and/or costume.
But, as I said before, I think they'll go for the 3rd parties for the new characters, like season pass, with maybe one or two promotional Nintendo picks, which it's a shame for me, considering I like more Nintendo characters picks.
