I mean, do you see all these fake rosters you guys are posting? How, since they announced Smash was developed alongside Namco, people have been saying the new Namco rep would be Pac-Man?

I'm just taking the Greninja trailer here, and how Sakurai likes to surprise fans. He stated himself that he wanted to bring characters that would surprise fan. He's not stupid, he knows everybody is waiting for that Pac-Man announcement. Adding to that, he likes to play the: I'm a huge troll" card.

And that, my friends, is pretty much why I think we will get a huge surprise at E3 that is not Pac-Man. Note that I'm ready to admit I'm wrong, but this time around I'm pretty damn sure that he's not in the game.

Prepare yourselves, Lloyd or Naruto incoming(just joking but still better choices than Pac-Man)

I like how having like one surprise character per entry translates into every character will be a surprise. What about the 40+ characters that weren't surprises?

Yes, Sakurai likes surprising us. But his primary concern is the game itself. Good decisions take priority over shocking decisions.

Megaman, Little Mac, Wolf, and Villager weren't surprises. They are expected characters from popular series. The other four are. I'd also throw out Pit, Game and Watch, Ice Climbers, and Greninja as surprises, but again I ask...what about the 40+ that WEREN'T surprises?

I'd say all the returning characters in Brawl weren't surprises, along with King Dedede, Metaknight, and Wario.

Granted, Brawl only had 39 characters, so I'm not sure where he got 40+ from.

Hindsight is fantastic.
Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
