Everyone voting in the Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot... You need to know this...
Bomberman and Earthworm Jim could very well have made the roster... But, the companies that made them are no longer in business... Hudson Soft and Shiny Entertainment...
That means that Nintendo can not legally get the rights to put them in the game...
Everyone claiming that Ryu is a 3rd-party character like Pac-Man, Sonic, and Megaman?... You should know that Ryu is from the same company that brought us Megaman... Playing ANY Marvel VS Capcom game, or a simple Google search will tell you this. It's the same when people are all like "Yeah, I love Green Lantern! He's my favorite from Marvel, just like Spawn!" You people sicken me.
There is strong chance that they are only adding main characters from Namco, Capcom, and Sega franchises... That means there is only hope when voting for these characters...
Gillius Rockhead from Golden Axe
Arthur from Ghosts 'N' Goblins
PTX-40A from Lost Planet
Heihachi, Jin, or Kazuya from Tekken
And others who are main characters from those 3rd-party franchises. One more vote for Spongebob (Viacom) and, I'll lose my damn mind.
