No matter if you agree or not, Sakurai clearly did not feel

Dude, I do not know how to tell you this, but being a"favorite character" was NEVER a requirement for getting into Smash Bros.. Ever. Iconography and fame are not some kind of sacred thing to consume. The only thing Sakurai has ever said on the subject is the figures he puts in need to be from Animal Crossing Bells a video game (obviously) and be able to have a realized moveset in Smash. That's it. And judging from all the decades of"Ridley too large" and his position as a boss-monster in Smash, I envision Sakurai himself had difficulty imagining Ridley smash-ified, which explains why his inclusion required so long.
What? Uh no, it's not though. The shape, proportions and structure of Ridley's version in smash aren't at all like how he is in the first Metroid. He is much closer to his future incarnations, only scaled down.
And wanting have a personality with a feel that suits in to Smash is a whole lot tougher than you are making it outside. It isn't just about the movement set not being complicated, about the character sense like they belong to this smash-ified world, while nevertheless being recognizably that character. Maybe this can be a more obscure thought than that I can get round, so let me try using an example. You ever seen gameplay for PlayStation All-Stars? While every one of the characters in that game are recognizably these characters, the way that they move in the match, the way they fight, how they play off of each other, only... does not really work. Something about it always looks off, and does not quite feel like a cohesive game. And that's what I'm talking about; creating a balance at which a character is recognizably still the character they are, while also making them feel"right" in the context of a party fighting game like this.
No matter if you agree or not, Sakurai clearly did not feel like he would pull off that balance in Brawl and Smash 4 with Ridley, however, was completely conscious of his importance (hence his standing a boss).People are tired of Ninteno's increasing failure to deliver. Their Immediate announcements are yawnworthy. Switch is SUCH a cool platform but it feels underutilized for their important IP. The biggest slap in the face to everyone is buying this particular system, and 4 decades later still no mention of half of their major IP. Lots of small indie games and quirky Japanese ports. Remakes of games no one asked for, and no remakes of those people are requesting for. They simply seem completely deaf to their fanbase, and not only that, HOSTILE for their fanbase in many ways (shutting down fan mods of matches, DMCAing youtubers, the crush controversy, etc etc).
It's just hard to a lot of individuals to see among their favorite sport businesses languish like this, myself included. It seems like buy Animal Crossing Items you are cheated purchasing this system and hardly any major franchise/AAA titles are published on it.
