That doesn't really matter, IMO. If you only kept people because they were in the original one, then there are some problems there. And if you want your N, you've gotta make sacrifices. We all know the Mario characters can't be outnumbered.
That's why I said they need a newer one with a similar apperance.
Jiggly > N
The original 13 have NEVER not made an appearance in a game. Jiggly is just as important to Smash as Luigi, Ness, etc. But I don't see you guys talking about replacing them.
Pokemon series wise, yes, Jiggly is not super important. But she's made her mark on the Smash Bros. universe, and she's going to stay. I guarantee it.
Because she's not, dude.
When I say Earthbound.. what comes to mind? ... Ness
Mario series? ... Mario & Luigi & Yoshi
F-Zero? ... Captain Falcon
Everyone else are the faces of their game. Jiggly is not even close to reaching that level.
But in the Smash Bros universe, she's just as important. >.>
In the Smash Bros universe, tell me, who is more important? Olimar or Jigglypuff?
Olimar is the star of the Pikmin series. So what? Jiggly has been there for all three f-cking games. Every single one of them.
Perhaps Jiggly didn't deserve to get in Smash in the first place. That doesn't matter now, all that matters is that she's in now.
Olimar is more important. Olimar brings in more diversity among games. I'd take him over Jiggly any day.
i have no agreement with the "Smash Universe", simply because I see it just as a way to put characters from different games against each other and not a place with its own seperate values. Popularity is everything.
Which takes me back to my first point:
If you just want to have people there for the sake of them being the original, then that's just not right.
Same thing happened with Marvel vs. Capcom. People began flipping sh*t when they learned X wasn't in it (after he was in 1 and 2), but yet, I find Zero to fit the bill a lot better. Be accepting of change (if it happens), and it'll be better. I guarantee it.
