Journey across a wide variety of locations and tackle a mixture of obstacles that will require both timing and strategy to overcome. Gain experience, grow more powerful, and meet new characters to use their abilities in taking down Smithy and his gang”!

      1. Because he’s a pure one-off. Hell, he’s lucky to even get a mii costume. But someone like K Rool got it too so it isn’t special. Geno is nowhere near good enough to be a playable character. It’s the basic truth.

          1. Known worldwide and actually has an appearance in more than one game. Every character in Smash has an legit reason behind them. Geno doesn’t. If Geno was the main character of Super Mario RPG that’s a different story. But he isn’t.

              1. He did because he played the role as “ad from an upcoming game”. Fates was in the right spot quoted from Source Gaming.

                “After internal analysis, we decided that if we’re going to make DLC, we would choose a character from a soon-to-be-released new game. After consulting many times with Nintendo and looking at the upcoming release schedule, Fire Emblem Fates was in just the right spot. It’s already been released in Japan, but is yet to be released overseas, making it a prime candidate in terms of timing. I personally felt that having too many Fire Emblem characters was a problem, but after talking it over with the development staff and discussing logistics, I felt certain that I could make them a fun character..”

                1. Marth was picked because he the most popular pick from the japanese poll. Roy was to advertise. They were even going to be removed by Nintendo of America! Read this. It’s from Marth’s wiki.

                  “When Super Smash Bros. Melee was being developed, requested character polls posted by Japanese fans placed Marth as the most popular character, so HAL Laboratory included Marth as a playable character in the fighting game, and also placed the main character from the then-upcoming Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade (Fuuin no Tsurugi) game, Roy, as another playable character alongside Marth. Nintendo of America feared that these characters would not have appeal to American gamers and thus would have to be removed, but there was enough stateside approval of Marth and Roy that they were kept. Marth and Roy were introduced along with the Fire Emblem franchise through the U.S. release of Melee, and the result was immensely positive, causing Fire Emblem games from installment seven onwards to be released internationally. Marth and Roy were not given dub voices in the game, retaining their Japanese-language voice samples (with Midorikawa reprising his role as Marth’s voice actor). For his bishounen character design and exotic flavoring, coupled with his effectiveness as a fighter, Marth remains one of the most popular characters in Melee.”

                  Duck Hunt Dog is actually popular and known. Much more than Geno.

                    1. Barely anyone actually cares about Geno, He’s just like King K Rool. Stop acting like he could’ve made it in. Now keep quiet and embrace your costume. Be glad he’s even in this game at all!

                        1. Invalid, Japanese requested them in and it wasn’t a small amount. More like the entire Melee community which had an effect since Brawl didn’t exist years after Melee. Imao, looks like the Smash fanbase has a thing for japanese exclusives.

                          Marth became a favorite
                          Roy became a favorite and barely had enough demand to return as the Melee part of the DLC
                          Lucas is an fan favorite from Brawl and had enough demand to return as Brawl DLC.

                          Now Takamaru, a japanese exclusive is starting to get more demand who got the boot as an Assist instead of a playable character in favor of Duck Hunt. This is coming full circle.

                          Your points are void and you’re just getting desperate. This is what I expected from a Geno fan. Try again dude.

                      1. Finally, I got this game so long ago back when Club Nintendo had it, and I was planning on transferring it over to my Wii U when it was available… It’s been, what, seven or eight months since Club Nintendo had it? I thought this would have been added much sooner, considering when Japan got it.

                        1. Nintendo is absolutely garbage at putting their games on their virtual console service. I don’t even want a VC on the NX unless they actually try. They’re doing worse with the WiiU than they did with the Wii. Unacceptable.

                          1. Frankly, it’s just NoA that’s really sucking at VC releases. The Japanese and European VC divisions are leagues ahead of the North American one.

                            We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: NoA needs major housecleaning in all areas, up to and including Reggie.

                        2. I hope those guys had fun debating Smash with Peridot Gem. He’s a big Sakurai fanboy so he worships most of what that man says. You aren’t getting past that force field.

                          Anyway, watch Super Mario RPG hit the n3DS’s VC at some point. Nintendo really should have implemented cross save & cross buy so we don’t have to pay multiple times for the same exact game for multiple consoles. But I guess they’d rather weasel more money out of people’s pockets instead. -.- Speaking of, if Paper Mario is never going to be a true RPG again and I don’t really care much for the Mario & Luigi series because they come off way more kid friendly than the first two Paper Mario games, can we please get Super Mario RPG 2! I miss having partners besides just Luigi.
