basically everything sakurai has said has shot down the idea of any 3rd party franchise getting multiple characters

Tails shares many similarities to Dixie Kong

No they laugh at you because shadow is a dumb character, put knuckles in, instead.
knuckles is an even worse character than shadow lmfao

I feel shadow would do fine considering they added wolf and in all the old game he was like shadow moody a jerk and depressing at times lol

Who the hell wants another sonic rep? Sonic is the only decent character of the whole series. They should make robotnik (not eggman, robotnik) a boss. --- Ray MK II, Little Mac, Banjo-Kazooie, Simon Belmont, Snake, Sonic, Crono, Sora, Travis Touchdown, Bayonetta, MM Link, King K Rool, Saki, & Isaac for SSB4

Not saying I want Shadow, but people should play Sonic Battle if they think he will be a clone of or play similar to Sonic... --- Praise the Lord, our one true God!

The problem with 2 Sonic reps isn't as much that Sonic is a 3rd party franchise (it's not like there have ever been any stated limits) as much as there just isn't a second Sonic character that brings the kind wow factor and demand that Sonic brought to the table. They probably don't see much return on investment in adding a second Sonic character, especially since the base is pretty much fractured when it comes to who likes what Sonic side characters.
Also, the extra characters have been something of a sore spot for SEGA ever since 2006 came out and 'Sonic's ****ty Friends' became a thing. Really poisoned the waters. It's sad too because being able to play as Knuckles and Tails in Sonic 3 was pretty sweet and few of the characters were every really all that bad, there were just too many of them and they became exceedingly poorly written.

2 sonic reps is not impossible.
True. Here's what it would take for that to happen:
Nintendo buys the Sonic series from Sega
For this to work, chances are pretty good that this would have to happen:

Just a Dr Eggman cameo or boss is enough, no more than that though. --- Too many things are troublesome. Psn: Lethal_Sink - Visit my YouTube for daily videos http://www.youtube.com/user/ChaotixLegacy
