Fighters do not get in because the devs were lazy and it was easy to make.
Now I'm no expert on making games or anything, but I'm almost 100% positive they had to re-animate all of Wii Fit Trainer's moves, despite them being identical to the game itself. Of course they had a solid reference to go off of, but they didn't just rip the animations from the game and put them in Smash. Trust me, it would look VERY choppy, and that's a no go for our main man Sakurai.
After watching the game play video of all the characters, though, I've grown very fond of the Villager and even Wii Fit girl. I still don't think either would be mains, but I do random a whole lot, and these two are characters I wouldn't mind getting.
So despite the anything can happen video they just showed us, I believe these two are the last we'll see of "WTF Characters." Sakurai probably just wanted to emphasize them in the first trailer for shock value, and perhaps even to see for himself how the reactions turn out.
So who's next? My biggest money is on Little Mac and Chrom (or at least an Awakening rep.) We see both a boxing arena AND Arena Ferox as stages in the trailers and screenshots, and I believe that's a good enough hint. I also believe Pit's moveset change to Uprising gives Palutena more possibility points, as I kinda feared before that if they didn't change Pit's moveset it would mean Sakurai was not taking Uprising into account as far as Smash is concerned, effectively ruining my favorite goddess's chances.

I...I literally just spit all on my screen. I really should have seen this coming, though, I'm ashamed of myself for being caught even a little off guard.
I am pretty sure it wont be hard to transfer the models. Brawl texture hackers do it. Sure it will probably be tweaked a lot but the model is still there and all of the animation.
Sakurai said they put Samus in from Other M. They just detailed it.
Also with a Pac-man TV series coming out, does this increases the chances of Pac-man getting into Smash 4?
Pac man tv show? Da fuq.
