I think it became a meme because Sakarai went into extensive detail as to why he enjoys playing that game
This is why I still think a Xenoblade 2 character is still coming because he enjoyed that game a lot too according to him.
Well fuck me, Steve might make the cut in that case then, considering Sakurai's a noted Fire Emblem fan and thus why SSB4 showed a particularly healthy number of FE reps.
Rex as a Mii costume sealed Xenoblade 2's fate for representation, but one idea is that Elma from Xenoblade X could be make the cut. Personally wouldn't like that idea though, since X was a bit too much of a divergence from what made Xenoblade 1 so great in my book, whereas 2 looks like a faithful follow-up to 1 from what I've seen.
Bowser is OP as fuck. Just letting you all know that.
My sister unlocked him in her copy. She allowed me to try him out and I feel very inclined to say that he essentially peaked in 3D / U, since the removal of his up throw's combos = the end of his tourney viability.
Still gonna main him, although he very likely won't see as much usage as in 3D / U, especially since Incineroar is going to be my go-to heavyweight character (Link will be a very close second, while Samus / Dark Samus will be tied for a very close third).
