I love Goku but I don’t want him for Smash. I’d much rather have him in a game like a Shonen Jump All-Stars or a more fighting-centric game (as opposed to Smash, which I consider a brawler).
However, I wouldn’t be unhappy with Goku’s inclusion. He’s one of my all-time favorite characters.
Yeah, there are other all-star games that make more sense, actually he is in J-Star Victory VS.
The problem with this argument is that
- Shonen Jump/ J-Star all star games are mostly Japan exclusive.
- Jump all star are mediocre games
- Practically no one cares about these games over here in the west unlike Smash.
It would be a huge waste to not have Goku in Smash since he's well known and beloved worldwide and he fits in the game.
