What? It would require years to have the basic gameplay alone working flawlessly. There is no chance it would be ready at launch with less characters since the game just started development this year. Besides, less content? Please no.

Kazin wrote:All of the hype behind Geno is the fact that a ton of people that have the money to purchase a 3DS and a Wii U played Super Mario RPG as a kid back when the Famicom/SNES was making its rounds. I remember it pretty vividly as a kid. Geno (and Mallow) were both pretty cool characters by definition, and that nostalgia, like many games, characters and settings, carries on even today, decades after release.
I mean, look at games like Star Tropics. People want Mike Jones in and Star Tropics was, in comparison to a game like Super Mario RPG, not nearly as memorable. A lot of franchises and characters run purely on nostalgia power. It's why people still purchase Mario, Sonic and Metal Gear games. Everyone nostalgic for the characters and settings, everyone hoping that the next game won't disappoint.
Anyway, having said that, I honestly want Geno in for the very reasons I've stated above: nostalgia. When I play fighting games, I tend to play and main characters that I like, and Geno would be right there with Ness, Lucas and Ganondorf. I think there might be some validity to this claim, because wasn't there a news story floating around some time ago that Squenix had let Nintendo borrow 'older' characters for a project? That either means another crappy Fortune Street/Itadaki Street game, or..
Geno and Mallow for Smash 4. Day One Purchase. :3
Devil_Rising wrote:Beyond that, wouldn't Nintendo own the rights to Geno and Mallow, the same as they own the rights to Diddy, and Funky, and Cranky Kong, etc.? The only reason they don't own characters like Banjo and Conquer and Joanna Dark, is because Rare published those titles themselves. Nintendo published Donkey Kong Country and Super Mario RPG themselves, meaning any new characters created by Rare or Square in those games, still belong to Nintendo. Meaning they could use Geno and Mallow any time they want, I'd think.

Can't tell ya on that one, I have no idea either. But that's what it seems to be.
So going by that logic, Geno would be considered either a 2nd party character or a full-on 3rd party entry I think. On the downside to this, that'd be yet another Mario character entry into the roster. We have the main 4 already, we don't need any more. Same with the Zelda and Pokemon series.
I say to keep the franchise entries to a max of 4 fighters, personally. Makes the roster seem more balanced out with even representation that way.
