Sakurai hates the game boy advance theoryI just don't think Sakurai's ever really thought highly of Isaac or GS in general.
Brawl's roster was planned in 2005, only a few years after The Lost Ages, and he only got an assist trophy. Meanwhile, Smash 4's roster was planned in early 2012, only a little over a year since Dark Dawn's release, and he didn't even bother to bring back Isaac's AT. And even with the ballot, he was able to get the return of his AT and a Mii costume.
Only if Waluigi is either A. already in or B. barred from the vote.
are Ghosts out too?
She might! I would like to give her an extra push though. Then again I could also vote for Mother Brain. Or Takamaru! Break down the "no Japan-only characters" wall.
Well I mean; Marth, Roy and Lucas. But I get what you mean though three have special caveats attached, and it seems like Sakurai has gone back on allowing those sorts of inclusions.
Yeah; on the seperate Echo Fighter poll, they are one of the options for Rosalina's Echo, alongside Lillie and Nebby.
Takamaru wouldn't break down that wall anymore tho. He got brought westward on the 3DS.
Hell yeah; it's time for the Sukapon Squad to gather.
Nah, you don't need a Japanese NSO subscrption. You just need to make a Japanese account to access the eShop and download it.
Simon Belmont had been a popular request ever since the Brawl days, and Castlevania as a whole has always had more pedigree than Golden Sun.It makes a lot of sense on paper as to why all of that new content being required might have stonewalled Isaac, but that sort of falls apart when you look at Castlevania, which got all of that and more, but also which I wouldn't have pegged as being more popular than Isaac ballot-wise. Makes you think.
Castlevania is one of the biggest classic gaming IPsI do honestly wonder how well Isaac did in the ballot. He clearly did well enough to get both a much-improved Assist Trophy and model, as well as his Mii costume, and in fan polls generally wasn't too far behind big fan favorite K. Rool.
I don't know if it was here, but I saw someone hypothesize once that Isaac might have had a harder uphill battle due to being from a franchise new to Smash, and would have therefore necessitated a new stages, a full musical work up, and more, whereas K. Rool and Ridley didn't have to considering they came from existing series with a lot of the work already done.

My suspicion has always been that Sakurai just wanted a Belmont in order to represent Castlevania and decided to implement Richter since he has the most versatile moveset out of all the Belmonts. It wasn't until later that he decided to implement Simon as the default only because of worldwide appeal (nearly every reaction video I've seen of that reveal had not a single person recognise Richter).I still find it somewhat strange that Richter is about 3-4 characters above Simon in the game's character select database. Every other base fighter is directly followed by their echo. I guess they figured Richter had the better moveset, so once they got him right, they could apply it to Simon just because he's the og.
Would vote for Skull Kid, but if we got an AT -> Fighter Pass, then:
