Btw, I hope you Geno fans are happy. I had to sacrifice putting Rosalina in by default for your boy. lol
For those who played the game he came from, his concept of a star envoy who has descended to Mario's world and possess a body a la Pinocchio who just happened to have ***guns*** seems/ed cool at the time and since he has been pretty much MIA along with the other beloved character Mallow for over two decades until his cameo in Smash Bros, fans just wishes to see him and Mallow back in the Mario verse even if it's just background characters instead of sitting in a closet to dust.
Though with the recent policy on original characters, it will be a tough if not impossible battle.
