It's getting depressing even for my tastes, really.

Since when was that a prerequisite for a third party to get in though? It wasnt, and for all we know sakurai might just bring in third parties that have the biggest clout among gaming series and history. Snake, sonic, and megaman all have that going for them, its not about who has the biggest allegiance and pays their dues and nor should it be if they are fun to play as and are important to gaming.
Since when? Since Sakurai said "Third party characters must have had at least one game on a Nintendo console".
Also, the fact that Kojima and Sakurai are apparently good friends is one reason why Snake had appeared in Brawl (among the begging and now the story switching to Kojima's son wanting Snake in a Smash Bros. game).
I don't see a point in Snake coming back if there aren't going to be any MGS games coming to Nintendo's consoles. You can sit there and question that logic, but when there are other more deserving 3rd party characters, I don't think Snake deserves a spot in Smash 4 over someone like Bomberman, Pacman, Lloyd or Simon Belmont..
He has been on a nintendo console though, so even then he meets that criteria. He had mgs3d on the 3DS last year too, but even then sakurai has control over this game and i doubt hes going to base his choices on if each character is going to provide nintendo with a number of titles in the future, hell megaman cant do that right now. You can only say those characters are more deserving based on criteria you and others have come up with, it doesnt make it fact or the basis sakurai will use. As far as konami is concerned snake is their biggest character (just look at what they have had at the last few e3's, just metal gear, castlevania, and their soccer games) and he would definitely get priority over any other, especially since hes already been in brawl. Id love simon belmont, but i doubt he would get in, and bomberman seems to have been brushed under the rug by konami so i doubt they would send him over either.
I understand its not anything personal against the character on yours and others part by saying that, but people always stack things against snake without any possible basis other than factors they and others seem to believe matter when we have no clue if they actually would, especially since sakurai seems to go against the higher ups in certain choices anyway.
I distinctly remember in an interview by IGN or Gamespot where Sakurai did say that in regards to someone like Naruto or Goku (or any other non-video game character) being in Brawl as well as any other 3rd party character. It's not an assumption when it's readily available with a Google search.Sakurai never said that. People just turned assumption into word of
Meaning he blended in so well it worked with the others and it was hard to notice? Noted glad you agreeI don't think Solid Snake will be coming back again, especially when you realize that he's literally a needle in a haystack in the Smash Bros. series.
Not once has Solid Snake been involved with any Mario media, which is the case with Mega Man, Sonic, and even Pac-Man.
Ehem, I think you mean Nintendo media. Having been involved with Mario is in no way a necessity to gain access to Super Smash Bros at all, he just needs to have been involved with Nintendo, which he has been. Mario is just one series in Smash Bros, being treated on equal ground as Zelda and Pokémon.I don't think Solid Snake will be coming back again, especially when you realize that he's literally a needle in a haystack in the Smash Bros. series.

Thats naked snake in MGS5, the man solid snake was cloned from. Its not as confusing once you play through the games, naked snake was basically the greatest soldier the world has ever known, so they wanted to clone him and use those clones.So is it actually snake in MGS:V?
Man the MGS is so unnecessarily concluded and confusing I never understand what happens in them...
I just thought about that. They would.Given SSB4 artstyle change, how do you imagine Snake looking like if he's in? His bleak clothes from SSBB would feel very out of place, wouldn't they?
Why does he have to have a new game for a nintendo system to coincide with this game? Everyone keeps acting like things must be owed or pledged to nintendo when really no third party can promise that as a business, capcom didnt promise a mega man game (yet people will still use the "hes been on nintendo since the beginning" which is what appears to be his loophole). And snakes clothes would look fine, if anything they could go with naked snakes sneaking suit which is shiny with gold accents, giving him less shading and a few other smoothing details wouldnt be hard to do, and if the smash dev team couldnt make him fit in id question their ability if they couldnt figure a way to make it work.I just thought about that. They would.
I really can't see Snake returning without the Wii U version of the newest MGS title and if he does, it wouldn't be fair to Nintendo as well as other third party characters that may have Wii U or 3DS exclusives.
