    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.
