Ice Climbers was chosen over Excitebiker and Balloon Fighter.
His competition was incompetent.
Elaborating on what 'Karp said.
The ICs were chosen as 8-bit age ambassadors.
G&W was chosen to represent the Game&Watch age.
You all think too hard on "relevency" via recent games. Popularity in itself is a form of relevancy. Anything being actively brought up makes it relevant. SF isn't controlled like the Pokemon franchise, and Fire Emblem is. The only characters ever to be included BECAUSE of "a recent game" was Roy. You put too much emphasis on recent game appearances. Retros should show you guys that doesn't matter. IF it did, Falcon, and Lucario wouldn't return.
But, I'll move on. Ridley will be added, and we're now on the Mother and F-Zero franchise

I'm not seeing any new Earthbound/Mother reps, there's only three games in the series, and two of them have reps.
F-zero...isn't that dead or something? I mean, I guess there's a few characters that might have a chance, but I'm not seeing such a dead series getting more then one rep.
....what? He has a name?Originally Posted by Smash Wiki
And on that note, F-Zero is dead in the water like Star Fox 'til it gets a new game t' revive the series, so I don't think Falcon will get a friend or foe from the race tracks t' spar with.
