Super New Kool rumor

Push Dustin and New WabiSabi just dropped a bomb on the Smash neighborhood and the speculation train is currently operating at a fever pitch. According to a now-deleted listing on Nintendo UK’s web site, the subsequent Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC carries a copyright from SNK, creators of the Neo Geo console and developers of Ikari Warriors, Metal Slug, King of Fighters and other iconic franchises.
It would add up that SNK would at some point get representation in Smash. The firm is arguably as historically substantial as Sega, Square-Enix, and Konami, specifically in the arcade sector, exactly where the have been amongst the world’s most profitable publishers all through the ’80s and ’90s. That is why I am guessing that if the subsequent Smash character is from SNK, it will be Marco from Metal Slug (with Ralph/Clark from Ikari Warriors as an alt costume). Terry Bogard, or far better but, a entire three-way tag group from KoF, would be a amazing option also, but when it comes to representing the sorts of games that are quintessentially SNK, the tank-hopping, cartoon military action of Metal Slug/Ikari Warriors makes additional sense.
I also would not kick Bub and Bob from Bubble Bobble out of my Smash bed, but due to the fact they are owned by Taito, and only licenced to SNK for Neo Geo titles, their probabilities are slim (for now).
