I guess hard luck for Sega, Square is more involved third-party franchise in Smash Bros than the other third-party fighters.

Also, when Sakura said it was he was the last character, did he truely mean it? I mean, will there be no more updates or new characters or DLCs to SSBU? (Other than maintenance I guess.)

Well, they gave Switch their Kingdom Hearts games, not a bad deal for Nintendo. Cloud gaming version but still.
Now SquareEnix could be proud of themself since they have most characters representation.

SEGA : Sonic, Bayonetta, Joker --> 3
Capcom : Megaman, Ryu, Ken --> 3
BandaiNamco : Pac-Man, Kazuya --> 2
Konami : Snake --> 1
SquareEnix : Cloud, Sephiroth, DQ Hero, Sora --> 4

Yes, he meant it.
Back then in Smash for Wii U/3DS too, when he said this is the end, then it's really the end.
Adding new character was fun, but to make it balance & compatible with other 80+ characters was tiring for him.
Quoting him again, "games are just more fun to play than to make."

That's the difference with mobile games I guess, who's constantly adding new characters until the game's not selling well anymore.
When the console game developer said they wanted to wrap it up, then that's the end.

Well that's too bad. The last fighter would of make or break my decision to buy a Switch or not. I know a silly basis of a decision but I don't want to spend money on a console for just a few exclusives. And Smash Bros with more representives of Sonic would of been a selling point for me.

Yeah, wallet's saved for you.
For me, I've put this game on the shelf.
Playing as Sonic in SSBU is fun (he's so f*cking fast), but without new SEGA characters, I'd rather use my limited free time playing the other new game : Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania.

Sakurai: When I introduce a new character to my game, I have to make sure their strength and skillsets are balanced to make sure not to throw off the digital ecosystem I have throughout the game. Down to their endurance, their skills, their abilities and even their stages are contributing factors to the game. Because of this I don't welcome just any character to my game.

Nagashi: I put them in a ball.

I of course don't have Twitter so I can't ask my question if Bean is still related to Dynamite Dux.
