A new Shantae Game, called Shantae and the Pirate's Curse, has been revealed, set to be released in 2013 on the 3DS. What do you think this means for her chances, if anything? Would you want her as a playable character? I know there are a few posters here that show her very strong support.
Oh, I want her in. She's my most wanted newcomer and I'll show my support any way I can as often as I can.
...however, she has no chance. She's third party and from a very small company at that, her series isn't even a fraction as popular or profitable as the other series repped in SSB (though I wish it was), she's an American charater that Sakurai (and the rest of Japan) haven't ever heard of, and Sakurai's comments about the roster size & 3rd party characters were the final nail in the coffin.
I'm very happy a new Shantae game is coming a lot sooner than I thougt it would, even if our heroine no longer has her trademark transformations and spells (though the game's purpose is to rectify that). But sadly it doesn't help her chances of getting to SSB one bit.
