Could be a spirit or a FS.How would y’all feel if they used the monster from the arcade illustration as to represent the Space Invaders? While I know the alien sprites are much more iconic, it‘s possible that, in Sakurai’s eyes, it might be extremely difficult in conceptualizing a believable moveset + animations for the aliens in their sprite form. He tends to work with action figures and such for character concepts, and conveniently enough there’s an actual figma figure for the Space Invader monster that he could use.
I think it would be pretty awesome to play as another truly monstrous character, but I just wonder how they would be able to faithfully adapt it from the original arcade game.
