Who will the retro reps be?

IMO, Takamaru and Lip seem to be the most likely. Polls show that they've been requested since Pre-Melee and have gotten references since Melee with trophies and items like Lip's Stick and even had music in Brawl. Plus, Takamaru is no longer Japan-Only thanks to appearances in Nintendo Land and Samurai Warriors 3 and his original game got localized in Australia. Sakurai is also aware of their popularity. Maybe Mach Rider and Duck Hut Dog (don't know how Sakurai could make him work) might have a chance, but I think Balloon Fighter's chances were killed off thanks to Villager.

Duck Hunt Dog, most definitely.

Maybe Takamaru? Or Little Mac if you want to count him as retro.

Hmm, well I still kinda class Lil' Mac as Retro, even with the Wii Game, so ...

Mac, Takamaru and possibly somebody quite left-field and obscure.

Little Mac is a sure thing, IMO.

Also think Duck Hunt Dog is quite likely.

Little Mac is what I'm hoping for. Other than that, we've got plenty of retro characters present in the game already.

It'd be cool to have more though. I'm just too young to know any more.

Whoa, way too many Japanese-only characters!

I'd be fine with one... but three? Hold up. I think of all of them, Takamaru deserves it most, if only because of Nintendoland (and I guess because he's the most "retro" of them).
