I think the Meiji Restoration era would be a better setting than feudal. I would suggest the transitional period between them but that might be too similar to Assassin's Creed 3. And why the hell do so many people want World War II Assassin's Creed? Call of Duty would have faded into obscurity had it not wisely gotten out of that era. I know we live in an era of oversaturation of modern shooters, but remember when there was a time it was World War II we were tired of?

The only entry here I feel doesn't belong is Fire Emblem Awakening. Don't get me wrong; I love the game. It's the one game by miles I've spent the most time on the 3DS. However, it's disappointing in too many areas to be considered GOTY. The story is shallow, most of the characters are one-dimensional and forgettable, the missions and maps are repetitive and uninspiring, the DLC is middling at best, and the multiplayer is weak.

Chrom (Fire Emblem) - This is the obvious choice to swap out Ike for. Each Smash Bros. game seems to include the main character from the newest Fire Emblem at the time alongside Marth. Lucina (Fire Emblem) - Maybe not replace Marth, but given her story, she could definitely be used as an alternate skin for him. Flynn (Shin Megami Tensei IV) - Summoning demons would bring a new edge to the game, alongside with his sword and magic, he would be a formidable opponent. Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney) - No stranger to either fighting games or crossovers, he could be a very unique character given his non-combative style. Toon Link should incorporate A Link Between Worlds, such as items like the Sand Rod, or his signature hieroglyph power. Lars (Tekken) - As Tekken has made appearances on both the Wii U and 3DS, a guest spot from the series wouldn't be completely out of the question. Lars seems to be the flagship character for crossovers, the only other possibilities being former protagonists Jin, Heihachi, or Kazuya. Edward Kenway (Assassin's Creed IV) - This is a bit more of a wishful item on the list. Former protagonist Ezio appeared in Soul Calibur, so Ubisoft could be open to another crossover. Edward's diverse arsenal and combat style would suit Super Smash Bros. well. Commander Shepard (Mass Effect) - Another far-fetched hopeful. Mass Effect 3 appeared on the Wii U and he could bring biotic and tech powers to the fray.

Sorry to point this out but the entire second paragraph was a mess. None of the information was any help to the uninitiated. a) Marth is clearly not a "masked knight" in the screenshots and b) Who the hell is Chrom and why was he relevant at all? I clicked on the link you shared and I understood what happened. The latest game in the series, 2013's Fire Emblem Awakening, there is a character named Lucina who disguises herself as the (above) famed King Marth from history and dons a mask, making her the "mysterious masked knight." Chrom is the protagonist from said game. However, this Marth, as he has been in Super Smash Bros. since 2001, is clearly not the same person. He is in fact the protagonist from the first game in the series. Again, I know I'm just some guy pointing out inconsistencies on the internet, but this just reeks of lazy journalism, man.

I'm sorry, but where's the news? How many times is this article going to be written? You wrote it like your viewpoint is something that's never been said before. Yes, the media uses video games as a scapegoat much like they did with the internet, movies, TV, and radio before it for the thousandth time. But these types of edgy opinion articles are also getting to be hackneyed. You're saying nothing nobody already knows. Besides, video games aren't entirely blameless, either. They're a product of and a contribution to the violent American culture so stop saying that playing these games didn't contribute to these murderer's psyches. The reason video games are and will continue to be used as a scapegoat until the next young thing comes out is because it scares old people and the media capitalizes on it. And the reason that guns aren't getting blamed when next to games is because those old people love guns. And there's no video game lobby in congress, either. Again, nothing new being said.

Isn't that quote from Lance Sloane about a potential Mortal Kombat movie directed by Kevin Tancharoen that they're trying to sync with the game...
Don't be petty. You're a journalist and I'm some guy commenting on the internet. I wasn't attacking you or insulting you; I was just pointing out that this article is full of inaccuracies. First off, a quick Google search shows that Lance Sloane isn't even a Netherrealm producer; rather, he's a producer for the live-action webseries Mortal Kombat Legacy. Furthermore, that quote is made to seem that it's someone from the company talking about a new game Netherrealm is working on, rather than someone not involved with Netherrealm talking about a movie wanting to release at the same time as said game. I'm not arguing that a new game isn't in the works; the quote is a good indication that it is. But your facts are completely off, and I would suggest you do some fact-checking rather than rush out an article. But again, I'm just a guy sitting in his mom's basement commenting on the internet, so if you don't want to listen to me which you're very welcome to, there's nothing I can do about that.

**Injustice. As you can see, I don't have an editor myself. But, I'm not writing for a news website.
