Travis is the most likely third-party to be added to the next Fighter's Pass. -Suda51 and Sakurai are good friends -NMH3 comes out next year -Much easier to work out licensing wise -M-rated/CERO C15+ games have come to Smash before (P5) -Travis has been requested since Brawl
I just realized something. Sakurai is 100% calling his own shots with his DLC picks. He knows he'll never please everyone so rather than desperately try to appease the masses his motivations are going completely into picking the characters he WANTS to make. I madly respect that.
A lot of people don't like how Smash showcases have "wasted time / filler" with Sakurai counting in binary or explaining the history of a game franchise, but its honestly one of my favorite parts. I LOVE seeing this natural fun side of Sakurai instead of a serious Direct style :)
