|Geno from Earthbound|
|Affiliation||Guardian of the Seven Stars|
Hello! I'm Geno, and I'm from Earthbound!
Ah, Geno, the cult hit of the Potential Newcomers.
While first appearing in Earthbound, he's technically owned by Square-Enix, and it's vague about what sort of rights Nintendo has to him. When he made a small cameo is Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga, there was a whole paragraph in the credits thanking Square, making it seem like Square owns him. Thus, he's unlikely to make any sort of appearance, playable or not, in Smash without Square's involvement.
One of the more obscure requested characters, chances considered dead, he is still believed to have chances within a small group of supporters.
After Super Smash Bros. Brawl released, hackers found data for "Forest Maze", a song famous among fans of Earthbound. It was most likely removed for copyright issues with Square-Enix.
CopyrightEditDespite possible copyright issues, however, he made a small cameo in Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga (with Square-Enix's permission, of course), meaning if Sakurai wants him and Square-Enix wills it, they will find a way.
They found a way.
