RIP Capt Falcon Nintendo Direct 4-8-14
You realize they could still be working on Cpt. Falco and that’s why they haven’t released him right? That or they’re not revealing every character.
considering the 3ds version is coming out this summer and both games will have the same roster AND they ending the direct stream showing two new pokemon and NOT Captain Falcon, they don’t have time left to develop him into the game if they haven’t already and if they had I see no reason they would have kept him secret this whole time. its MORE likely that he was replaced by Little Mac.
It seems unlikely of them to remove characters from the original n64 roster. It could be possible but it would be sad. I always imagined the original n64 would be permanent characters.
I wish that too but its not looking very likely anymore. the Falcon hasn’t had a successful game since the SNES and while he is a fan favorite, with the separation of all the form changing characters like Zelda and Samus and developing two game AND separate stages AND adding new characters, some one had to go.
I loved the Falcon, he was my man in Melee but stuff had to be dropped. like Mewtwo, Wario, Roy, Lucus, Falco, and Wolf. granted some were just copy cat characters but they still had small changes that appealed to different people.
I’m still going to get the game and probably love it but it just very obvious that Captain Falcon would have been shown at this point had he been included. The introduction of Little Mac would have been a great moment for them to show him off if they had intended to keep him in.
maybe there will be future DLC with more characters and Levels, who knows but its just not looking likely at this time for Captain Falcon.
