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 Smash 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 ultimately get representation in Smash. The enterprise is arguably as historically considerable as Sega, Square-Enix, and Konami, in particular in the arcade sector, exactly where the had been amongst the world’s most prosperous 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 superior however, a complete three-way tag group from KoF, would be a excellent option as well, 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 a lot more sense.
I also would not kick Bub and Bob from Bubble Bobble out of my Smash bed, but considering the fact that they are owned by Taito, and only licenced to SNK for Neo Geo titles, their possibilities are slim (for now).
