Alright so here me out.
Yes Sakurai didn't pick the DLC that's actually part of what I'm banking on. I'm assuming Nintendo tells him what to put in and he accommodates.
So try and follow me on this, ok? Zelda in Smash is Link to the Past Zelda because "BoTW Zelda is a scholar."
But if you play BoTW you know this is actually only a half truth - BoTW Zelda is a mage to the point she sealed Ganon up for a century.
So why not just have BoTW Zelda as a skin or an echo?
The answer is easy: Because BoTW Zelda WILL be a playable character, but she'll be radically different from Sheik or Mage Zelda. She'll be BotW 2 Zelda.>>466156139
COURSE THAT'S JUST A THEORYYYYYYYYYYY
