I wouldn't be surprised if Goku is in the game to be honest. After Cloud got in I realized that there are no rules. If there are rules then they WILL eventually get broken. Smash Bros characters are like a slippery slope now.

Lol come on Ness is a Nintendo All-Star? Also Snake was originally supposed to be in Melee, so clearly the "rule" for getting into Smash was already wide open by then.

There's only ever been one rule, and that's videogame characters. Obviously at the start, with smaller resources and time, Nintendo was always gonna focus on their own first because it's that much easier, faster and cheaper. Anything else is just your entitlement to specific rules for what can and can't be in Smash, because you're too annoyed by the presence of characters other people want in the game.

Edit: and by the way every character in Smash 4 has appeared on Nintendo consoles.

Thats pretty sneaky trying to put cloud in that "edit" part



Seriously, the Goku in Smash troll/joke is getting to be older than "All Your base are belong to us."



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

There still isn't a good counter argument for why it would be SO INSANELY RIDICULOUS IMPOSSIBLE for Goku to be in
Smash. Just people saying you personally don't want him there isn't an argument lol. I think he should be. It would certainly give the game more attention and attract a shit ton of players.

What this guy ^ said . Years ago, when the Wii was hot and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 was announced, I was on an IGN board. The idea came up that the Wii version should have Nintendo characters like Link and Samus as hidden unlockables to help give the Wii version tons more value in the vein of Link being in Soul Calibur 2. Most people in the forum shitted all over the idea, talking about how Nintendo characters had no place in a Marvel game because they aren't comic book characters and aren't canon to the game. I'm like, "What the hell about this game strikes you as canon? What, is Marvel vs. Capcom canon to the comics and nobody told me?!"

Seriously, what is this sacred cow of gaming that makes people think certain characters can't cross over? Where is this hidden rulebook of gaming, or if these are unwritten rules, can we please start writing them down?

I dont see the issue with Goku in Smash. He has his own video games which to me proves a point. Its not like his a anime character only now.



Why is this a debate? People are acting like Goku would break the game. Smash has already included PS icons like Solid Snake and Cloud, I don't think an anime character would stop them.

Until a non-game character is put in, I’m going to say yes, it’s impossible.

Well if a non game character would be put in it be Goku so your post contradicts itself :p



Depends on Fighterz sales and reception and fan support I'd guess. Altough I'm not sure how Nintendo make some of the less Nintendo focused choices. Like Snake, after one port and not much but critics support they stick him in the game... sounds to me like Hideo had some people at Nintendo erect.
