So with Persona and Dragon Quest both getting definitive/exclusive games on Switch, there's just no way Nintendo themselves wanted to drive the hammer harder. Klearly the main beneficiary, and thus driving force, is Sakurai hands down. Just when I had forgiven him for turning the frogs gay, he pulls something like this, smh.

Persona isn't getting an exclusive game on Switch. P5 Scramble is on PS4 as well and I doubt Nintendo would put in Joker to promote a low budget spinoff mosou game that doesn't come out until next year.

Why do so many people here have this idea that Sakurai is constantly lying to us? It's like, I understand that people aren't 100% honest, but people here would have you believe he's 0% honest, which doesn't make sense.

Also, is it so hard to believe that Nintendo would choose these characters? I mean, Reggie seemed proud of the fact that they're be left field choices. Moreover, even if you think that these are un-Nintendo choices, Nintendo straight up has a department dedicated to doing un-Nintendo things so it's not improbable for these choices to be made.
I am pretty sure I know what to do now.

Whoever made the choices has made a good job so far. I like to think it was Sakurai. The passion put in the movesets and in the stages doesn't strike me as something that was "forced" on him.

So people are convinced that executives at Nintendo selected:

The protagonist of a Sony exclusive M-rated RPG that happens to be Sakurai's GOTY


A dead platforming mascot owned by a rival console manufacturer


The mascot of a recently resurrected fighting game studio that just-so-happens to have played a major role in Sakurai's philosophies as a game designer


Not knocking on Sakurai, I actually like that he's wearing the pants here. But I wonder why he keeps saying otherwise.


It's almost as if he's adding from his own personal wishlist with no regard for what the fans actually want!

So far only Banjo's felt like a good addition out of everyone in the Fighter Pass... with Joker and Hero, there's no style or variety, they're exactly what they look like. And we already know there will be nothing special about Terry except for punching and kicking. Banjo is crazy, varied, and fits in with Smash's fast paced cartoony world.

Your statement means nothing without proof. There's no reason to think Nintendo wouldn't want to work with Atlus or SNK.
