    I need Muddy Mole and/or Jinbe from Mole Mania to be something in Sma5h. Spirits, something. All of these obscure Nintendo games are making their showing, but not that one.😞

    DIdn't part of that say there was going to be 50+ Assist trophies? SO that means there's at least 11 more.
    EDIT: Yeah the Midna bit says over 50.

    I'm still glad Krystal's an assist trophy, even after all this time since she was confirmed as such.
    Yeah, playable would've been better, but I was convinced Nintendo wanted to forget about the post-StarFox 64 canon entirely. This is a nice nod to fans like me who enjoy the games that came after.

    New assist trophy’s are pretty much saying, “ HEY! you see that character that you really wanted to be a playable character?! Well guess what!!! It’s an assist trophy instead!”

  • Gigabite 765
    Gigabite 765 Year ago

    there should be around 10-15 more assist trophies as when midna is being shown underneath her it says theres more than 50 of them

  • Engie49 Roblox

    maybe gooey will be an assist trophy

  • Turtlelover300

      O.H. X-90 Year ago

      They can't bring back what's already playable. Little Mac being both playable and assist trophy in this same game would be stupid and retarded, even for you, mindless troll.
