I don’t play smash but I find the character reveal stuff exciting anyway for some reason. I feel like a game character’s spirit is more intact as a smash character than if they were something like a fortnite skin. I also like the speculation it drives because it feels like the revealed character could be anyone. Nintendo also seems to have fun with announcement trailers and how they’re revealed. Despite the concept of a “multiverse” feeling played out, with Smash it still feels new and exciting, and I get some real good second hand enjoyment out of that
I think my personal pick would be Master Chief, slotted alongside a Master Chief Collection switch port. They already did the minecraft stuff, so clearly MSFT and Nintendo are talking. Master Chief does kind of represent a bit of an older gamer demographic now, and so him crossing over would be a huge deal.
Lastly, wish Nintendo would make another freakin F-Zero. Yeah nobody bought the last one! So what?! Give the people what they want.
Not holding my breath for another Dillon game, but if one were to come out that’d be awesome. I may actually be arsed to buy a switch for it.
