No disrespect to Banjo, but GS' "history" is pretty much the same.

Fondly-remembered series that was around for a brief period of time.

If Banjo could get in, there's no real, valid argument against Isaac.

Banjo represents Rare, one of the biggest companies in gaming history.

Next.


Yeah... because that's why he got in smash, and no other reason. Hahaha

I mean, the first 2 games sold pretty well on the GBA, both being a million sellers, and both are probably some of the more fondly remembered games on the system. The Golden Sun games were a significant part of the GBA, and were even advertised on the back of GBA boxes.

The way I see it, if we can get characters that were significant from really old systems such as the NES, G&W, or N64, or significant to more recent systems with the 3DS, Wii U, or Switch, then why not a character/series that was significant to a more "inbetween times" system like the GBA?

lmfao

Rare wasn't even one of the "biggest companies in gaming history" when they were in their prime. What the f*** are you talking about, man?

You missed the Sakurai interview where he said it's a celebration of gaming as a whole, huh?

@SirRobX

Speaking of, I got Dark Dawn the other day.

Holy f***, is it a slog. Like, the gameplay is fun-it's braindead easy, but fun-but holy s***, is there a lot of talk about nothing and needless padding.
Smash is VERY far from being a 'celebration of gaming as a whole' even if that's what Sakurai believes the game to be. It's a Nintendo game first and foremost and it will ALWAYS be a Nintendo game because Nintendo is the company that is funding it. The games are exclusively on Nintendo consoles. The vast majority of the cast is Nintendo characters. Characters from less popular Nintendo titles have been included. Ice Climbers, F-Zero, Star Fox, Fire Emblem, none of those pale in comparison to games like Call of Duty or Need for Speed, and yet the former were included in the game while the latter have zero acknowledgement. Because the former are Nintendo series. And it is absolutely unfair to say that Golden Sun doesn't deserve to be represented on the roster, because it is a Nintendo brand that arguably the majority of Nintendo fans have had exposure to and has a sizable fan base.

Since when does a character need to turn the entire industry upside down to get in Smash? Joker didn’t do that.
Supporting Ashley for Smash til the day I die. Or the day she's added. So basically the day I die.

It revolutionized the JRPG genre. If you can't see that, then you're dead to me.
