I’m a little behind on Featured Comments — sorry about that.
This article looks at comments made from the October 28th- November 5th (Japan time)!

This is a good point about Pit vs. Ridley. Pit does have a logical reason for not being to fly around freely.
I’d be really happy if Ashley made it into the next Smash. With her assist trophy and her getting a costume, I feel that she has a decent shot.
By the way, if anyone hasn’t seen XKan’s translation comparison of Ashley’s Song in English and Japanese, make sure to check it out!
That’s true. However, saying that Sakurai chose to work on Kid Icarus simply out of personal bias just because of affinity for Pit via Brawl, is wrong.
One thing about Smash is that it must mix a bunch of universes together while keeping the universes in tact. In Other M, Ridley can still pick up Samus, and is still pretty big. Downsizing Ridley might break the Metroid universe in Smash.
This is different with Olimar, because he’s not sized against the other characters. He’s never met any of them in his games.
There is some of that (saying it just because Sakurai stated it). But there’s also trying to understand why it’s an issue so we can come up with ways to fix it.
I’ve said it in the past, and I’ll say it again — if the Metroid team can create a version of Ridley that is able to become a fighter in Smash, I think it’d would erase a lot of the barriers Ridley has.
I’m not an expert on F-Zero lore, but a lot of the moves just wouldn’t work for Black Shadow. I don’t think a slow moveset would still fit Black Shadow because he is from a racing game. Then, on top of that the magic powers that Ganondorf has in Smash wouldn’t be applicable to Black Shadow. Black Shadow has some magical powers– like being able to summon Blood Falcon out of Captain Falcon, or magically bind Captain Falcon. They could easily pull stuff from the F-Zero anime as well.
I think 5-7 is the likely number of new characters. It really depends on a lot of factors we don’t know: how long have they been working on the port? how many people? Will they still update the 3DS?
If the amount of content determined the price alone, then Hyrule Warriors:Legends would be an even more expensive on the 3DS.
For the Kid Icarus: Uprising reply, see above. I really think that “itch” is in your head.
A lot of Ryu, Ken, and Akuma’s moves are visually similar. Ken and Ryu just switched their Neutral Jump Light Punch and Diagonal Jump Light Punch it seems. The specials are very close, just different versions of them. That seems exactly like clones in Smash.[Combined two comments from the same post]
That’s a good point to add!
We are planning on doing a full discussion on controller options and a Smash for Switch! If you guys want to see a particular discussion, let us know in the comments!
If they aren’t prioritized when making sequels, and don’t replace unique characters, I really don’t see the harm of clone characters.
