Smash Bros. isn't just about what is "recent".

I personally feel Link's design may actually be his planned appearance for the Wii U Zelda. It looks different enough from his TP look. (though I may just be overthinking it and its simply the vibrant colors making him look different to me)

Irrelevance is a perfectly good reason to exclude some characters.

Its not only because they are the most recent lords.
( which unfortunately I do see a lot. )

But Fire Emblem Awakening represents a lot more than just the newest Fire Emblem game,

its quite monumental, Not only is it the very First Nintendo game to recieve DLC, but the game itself was by far the most successful FE in history, both Critically, and Financially. It changed a lot of tone for the series, as well as being very highly praised for its artwork and its in depth relationship mechanic. For a lot of people as well, it was their first introduction to the series.

So I think it is incredibly unfair to trivialize the monumental accomplishments Fire Emblem Awakening did for its series, especially here in the west.

but I do agree with you on a whole.

I mean, its supposed to be a gathering of Iconic characters from Nintendos history together, and put them in a cohesive situation and watch the world bend, blend, and mend.

Thats why we got Twilight Link, it served as a better representation of the character over all, thats why we got the shorter villager, thats why we have characters from Mr. Game and Watch and ROB to Wii Fit Trainer and Olimar. And why Characters like Girahim shouldnt be so popular.

People shouldnt just look at new, and should look at both sides of the spectrum,

however, having said that, I also feel people can be over supportng of characters just because of their status as "retro" or because of apparences in the series earlier on. Like King K. Rool who hasnt been relevant and barely making it into any games at all unfortunately, and everyone forcing unoriginal and boring Retro characters at us.

What's been revealed has shown us recent counts a LOT.


Not enough for Link to be the Skyward Sword version.

Because this is more recent than Skyward Sword:

SSB4 Link is just a left-handed version of this guy.

Your point is?

1) That's Toon Link, not Adult Link. SSB clearly made that distinction back in Brawl.
2) The Wind Waker HD is not going to be more recent than whatever Wii U Zelda is currently in the works.

You know what my point is.
