Nintendo & Namco just announced a new Mario Kart Arcade game...

Wow, interesting to see he actually put a Rare poll in the game.

And the fans voted for James Bond over Banjo-Kazooie.

I am seething with so much blind hatred right now that I can't even process thoughts. The fact that I'm able to even type is nothing short of a miracle.

This is why it's a good thing none of the fans are actually allowed to make any important decisions. @_@

If I haven't mentioned Trivio in my post, it's because she is so beautiful and precarious that I just wanted to show her how much she means to me.

How come then Bowser,Mewtwo,Marth & Peach made it into Melee

All of these characters were the highest on that poll

Wario & King Dedede also almost made it into Melee


Sakurai said popularity is not the only factor. They could've easily been added for other factors; you can't say the poll was the deciding factor.


The polls are just the first step in the process
Wario was left out due Sakurai said he deserved more then a Mario clone
King Dedede was held as a backup plan if he couldn't get the rights for Marth

Polls are just to give Sakurai an idea what we want anyway, but unlike Sonic in Brawl, Pac Man sadly gets outclassed by Mega Man & alot of of First party characters like K.rool,Mewtwo & Ridley

The Capcom quote kinda was a hint that Sakurai is aware that People want Mega man

Stop dodging the question. Show me your proof that other factors were not at work. If you cannot do that, you cannot possibly call polls the deciding factor.

Well Sonic was the nr.1 most requested character for Brawl, Pac Man has way more competition then him & gets outclassed by Mega Man, Mewtwo, Roy, Shulk, Palutena,Ridley, K.rool & Little Mac in requests

Out of all of them, the only one that even comes close to Pac-Man's iconic status is Megaman. Pac-man is infinitely more known that most of them especially Roy who's from a Japan-Only game a lot of Western players haven't played and Shulk who's from a niche game. Also, popularity alone won't get characters in unless they have massive popularity like Sonic. Pac-Man is not only the most iconic video game character in history, he also has a big history with Nintendo, and is a guest in two (soon to be 3) Mario Kart Arcade games. Being Miyamoto's favorite game character doesn't hurt either.

Yes, but Pac Man is infinitely more known, relevant, and important than all of them combined to the actual public and not just people who browse the Internet all day. Hell, he's more of an actual Nintendo All Star than those guys. Not to mention, one of the prime reasons we even have video games.

That's on top of the fact that he has the huge advantage of being the mascot of the guys who are helping with this game.


If Pac Man is so well known, why is he barely requested for Smash & its only the Tales,Tekken & Soul Calibur team of Namco that is helping Sakurai & they said that if Sakurai doesn't want a Namco rep, we won't be getting a Namco rep

Also seeing that 3rd party spots could be reduced due that Sakurai said "he sees the need to narrow down 3rd parties & currently he only hinted at a Capcom rep being possible means that Mega Man has far more priority then any Namco rep due fan demand.

However if Capcom doesn't allow it, I can easily see Sakurai cutting the 3rd parties entirely from Smash or just Sonic staying


Lol... being Well known doesn't necessarily mean Most requested, its funny how you really try to dispute Pacman popularity,with how many request he gets on this site (which is what i'm assuming your basing your post on). Along side Mario and Sonic, pacman is one of video gaming most recognizable character.


Thats the thing, he only gets so much support here.
The Japanese are also far more interested in a Tales or Tekken character as proven by Snakey & they are the majority of the fans, Sakurai will look at to determin this times fan fav characters


But see that the things your Perceiving things through assumption (which seem to be a running theme for Tales fan) you don't know what the majority of japanese people like, you make it seem like because tales originated in japan that what most Japanese lean towards, yet you forget that before the tales series was even created Pacman had its popularity world wide. (being one of the pioneers of gaming helps this claim). and sure just because few Vocal Tales fans on This site make it known that they want a tales character in Smash that seems to make a tales rep "more requested".

do you guys think daisy will be a playable character? one image shows her on like an ad for the stage, so we probably have a daisy course at the least.

also is this game for u.s. people? if daisy is in this i might just have to pick up this game. i love to pick up new games with daisy so i can be all OH THEY RE USED THAT LINE OF HERS FROM A PREV GAME or to track when deanna has a new voice acting clip


This game isn't for sale, though! It's an arcade cabinet that will get distributed across arcades in Japan. lol

Also, who's "deanna"?

Heheheh, funny that this guy is thinking Polls actually meant something.

Well, for Sonic, sure... But just him.


Oh, and I love Pac-Man's new design. It's not the yellow pizza that everybody knows, but neither was his other design that had arms and legs. And if you ask me, this new design fits much better into the world of Smash standing alongside other living characters.

Unless Pac-Man is supposed to be a robot, but I'm pretty sure that isn't the case.

Here's another thing Snake said:

Snakey
The funny thing about Pac-Man is that it mirrors the same discussion we have about him here, ie many people feel he is the most appropriate character to represent Namco and be in Smash Bros., but the Tales fans are very against his inclusion and use the same arguments here such as him being "bland and "boring". However, keep in mind the Tales fans cannot agree on a character to represent their series.

As an interesting sidenote, there was a Japanese article talking about Sakurais comments pertaining to third-party characters, and the author put as aside that he expects Pac-Man.

You could say that Pac-Man may have the plurality of requests for a Namco character in Japan (much like he has the plurality for a Namco character over here).

However, the Tales fans there really don't like Pac-Man and making a big stink that he does not deserve it because they much rather see a Tales character, however, they can't agree on who the Tales character should be.

Arcade cabinets can be purchased.


Are people really insane enough to spend over $9000 on some arcade cabinet that only needs a quarter to play?
