Please explain either answer and tell me who you'd want in.

I'm pretty undecided, but if I had to pick, I'd say yes. They're helping to make the game, I feel they'll have a character representing them.

I feel like it will be either a Soul Caliber character or a Tales of series character.

Sakurai has already said that just because they are helping with the game doesn't mean they get a character. HOWEVER I still think it is going to happen.

Add in a Tales character. Milla or Jude I suppose since Xilla is the newest game.

Is Metroid's gun part of his armor or is he a cyborg like Data from Star wars?

No, because Sakurai outright said it wasn't guaranteed.

You should know by now to take EVERYTHING that Sakurai says regarding roster speculation with one giant grain of salt.

This, exactly.

Really tired of people taking Sakurai quotes and molding them to however they'd like. Obviously he has to say that for appearances. Does it mean we won't get a Namco rep? No. Does it mean that we will? No. But the whole comment was just made because it has to be made.

If you just view the development without taking the quote obnoxiously literal, we're most likely getting a Namco rep. There's just certain marketing moves people on here seem to refuse to accept and pretend like the almighty Sakurai and his creative genius is immune to it. Sonic, although he may have been in otherwise, secured a spot when they signed that exclusive deal with Sega. Dedede, Zelda, Olimar, etc. are all revealed when it promotes their games. We'll get a Namco rep, and it'll likely be Pacman. It'll coincide with the leak. It'll make sense for the development. It makes sense for why he would be included. Sometimes when all the pieces are there, they really do just fit. All the Sakurai quotes and all he does is eat dots excuses in the world won't change that.
