I don't think we'll get a 3rd party rep that hasn't been mentioned before. Before Brawl's reveal, we even had some sort of clue that Snake was a potential candidate.

So in this topic I'll be analyzing the positives and negatives as far as the chances go for the potential 3rd party newcomers

PAC-MAN

+ Namco is developing the game.
+ Pac-man is the mascot of Namco.
+ Long history with Nintendo.
+ Video game icon that everyone knows.
+ Most demanded Namco rep.
+ High unique moveset potential.

- Slight chance another Namco rep would be considered first.
- Not everyone is aware of his modern appearance, most know him as the basic yellow circle.


MEGA MAN

+ Most demanded 3rd party character.
+ Long history with Nintendo.
+ Sakurai has said Capcom is a possible 3rd party consideration.
+ High unique moveset potential.

- Mega Man isn't exactly Capcom's "favorite" franchise at the moment.


LLOYD IRVING

+ Namco is developing the game.
+ Appeared on a temporarily Gamecube exclusive game.
+ The director of his franchise is helping develop the game.

- Is likely to be considered after Pac-man.
- The franchise isn't as popular as those of the other candidates.


TRAVIS TOUCHDOWN

+ Started out as a Wii exclusive franchise.
+ Suda 51, the creator, is great friends with Sakurai and has expressed great interest in including Travis in Smash Bros (same way Snake got in).
+ High unique moveset potential.

- The nature of his franchise could be too "mature" for Smash Bros, so it'd have to be toned down.
- The franchise isn't as popular as those of the other candidates.


OTHER NAMCO REP

+ Namco is developing the game.
+ Lots of potential newcomers.

- Pac-man and Lloyd are probably the first considerations.


OTHER CAPCOM REP

+ Sakurai has said Capcom is a possible 3rd party consideration.
+ Mega Man isn't exactly Capcom's "favorite" franchise at the moment.

- Sakurai has the final say of the roster, and he'd likely pick Mega Man over another Capcom rep.



Anyways, I think it'll be some sort of combination of the above, most likely caping at 2 with Pac-man being the first choice.

Don't forgetting Capcom's say on the matter either.

I regarded that.
