Is anyone else worried they're gonna go the Mario Kart way with new characters?

But that doesn't stop him from taking the same approach. Different games should have different rosters in order to get some variety.

This already happened in Smash.

Remember Mr. Game and Watch? Marth and Roy? R.O.B.?

I don't mind a few unpredictable characters. I mean Brawl had PKMN trainer, nobody expected that! Melee had Mr. G + W and Ice Climbers, no one expected them either. This game will have the same, it's just a matter of who that character will be.

A few characters like that are fine, but shouldn't be doing what Mario Kart 7 did, in which those random characters were added at the expense of veteran fan favorites.

Sakuria has always had a very strong reason for picking the core characters, he thinks more about the roster than the fan board here does, and as to why a certain character would or would not work in the context, and if they are deserving enough.

Maybe aside from the one Retro character, or the WTF character, I dont see him throwing us any newcomers that we wouldnt see coming in some form or another.

Mario Kart 7 had a horrible roster, No diddy or Bowser jr? Really? I would have accepted that if they were just doing cuts to the series, but to have pointless terrible characters like honey queen get in over waluigi even, just feels so wrong.
