      I’m not saying it won’t happen but why do people say TGA is the only way Nintendo can reveal the last character?
      Nintendo have never relied on TGA for revealing a Smash Bros Character, they can always just reveal it in a normal Nintendo Direct like they did with Isabelle, Terry, and Pyra/Mythra.
      Besides, I really doubt they’d wait that long just to leave it for TGA, the payoff isn’t worth the wait.
