In a recent interview with Kensuke Tanabe, one of Nintendo's developers, the interviewer asked Tanabe what he thought about putting the Chibi-Robo character in Super Smash Bros., to which he responded, "If we receive an offer, we'll think about it." It is likely that the Super Smash Bros. team had never considered Chibi-Robo for their roster, or even as an assist trophy, but the fact remains that the door is still open.
While it is true that the Chibi-Robo! games have always had mediocre sales compared to Nintendo's other mainstays, it is surprising that Chibi-Robo would be left out of a game that is centered around celebrating all of Nintendo's various franchises.
What do you think about this omission from Super Smash Bros.? Are there any other Nintendo characters you feel deserve to be put in the game? Let us know in the comments!
