that is absolutely not it

The Resident Evil cast are based on real actors, so they probably have to pay the likeness of the actors to use their faces in Smash. Maybe the royalties are too high.

Tekken got a Mii costume in Sm4sh you had to pay for

Then it got the same Mii costume in Ultimate you have to repay for

Changing the faces of RE characters is the farthest thing from a problem for Capcom.

Poor guys get plastic surgery almost every game.

joker fires a realistic gun.
Except it's modeled after a toy gun and produces a cartoony sound effect. :L

I don’t think it sounds cartoony.

anyway they could a) do that for an RE rep too or b) don’t use the gun. Snake uses a gun in metal gear but not in smash. Re has enough weapons

A RE character would be super boring.
Metroid Prime is a near flawless video game.

I'm not saying they couldn't, lol. Just saying why I don't think Joker's gun counts.

They could definitely use Revelations Jill with her acrobatic skills or MvC Jill who's ON FIRE

Unless Minecraft gets the shaft (pun intended), then no.

Resident Evil is the highest selling Japanese series without a playable character; it’s only behind Mario, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Zelda & Sonic in terms of sales. Dragon Quest got in because of how huge it is despite selling around 20 million less than RE.

Resident Evil essentially started the horror genre. & while I didn’t used to think that’s a genre that Smash would ever represent, we now have spirits & even an Assist Trophy for horror games.

It has a good connection to Nintendo with several games in the series being exclusives for a period time including Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil Remake & Resident Evil: Revelations. As well as having a presence on Nintendo systems since RE2 on the N64, almost since the series’s start.

Resident Evil is a series very much like Mario & Zelda where it’s constantly reinventing itself to stay relevant & garnering massive praise. There’s been several great horror series in the years since RE’s debut (Silent Hill, Dead Space, etc...); but while those series eventually die off, Resident Evil perseveres & finds new ways to remain fresh.

One of Sakurai’s stated goals with Smash is to show the entire world how great Japanese games are. So it’s crazy that that he’s giving such a huge & influential Japanese series so little attention.

The only reason I can think of for RE seemingly getting the shaft is that Nintendo & Capcom decided on another character for now. I imagine this would be Dante since Capcom is actively wanting to make DMC bigger. While I imagine Sakurai would love to get Dante’s insane moveset into Smash.

I hope if we do end up getting 4 more characters after FP2, that they’ll go back & give Resident Evil some love similar to what they did with Arms.

Ideally it’d be a Hero/Bowser Jr situation with Jill/Chris/Leon/Claire all together. I feel the RE1/2 versions of those characters are similar enough to make that work.
