I think a third party character from NB is almost guaranteed.
So do you think would probably be put in?
My money's on Pacman.

I would like to see Bayonetta in. Since Bayonetta 2 is going to be a Wii U exclusive, she has a better chance of being in this.

I think you're expecting to many third party characters there haha(though it would be awesome). Including Sonic, that would be five third party characters assuming Snake doesn't return as well. I still think we will only be seeing three third party characters which is one more than Brawl. I expect we will see Sonic return and then possibly a Namco character to complete the set.

Megaman is in Sonic is seemingly in with their partnership and notoriety Pacman seems obvious choice, as mascot of Namco-Bandai, representing a huge part of gaming history (particularly as TEKKEN has had one game on a nintendo home console). Rayman isn't a super strange choice- he's been growing back in popularity, fits the bill for the game, and last year Ubisoft rocked e3 Let's just let Hudson Soft/Konami add in Bomberman to replace Snake, and I'm golden.
Who doesnt want Bomberman v Rayman v Megaman v Pacman?
That's great third party representation there.

Basically Namco is making the game and Sakurai is the boss.
So therefore things should turn out fine since Sakurai is the boss and Namco has to do whatever he says.

Didn't Sora shut down a few months back?

Yeggh... Well, things might turn out alright.

Namco Bandai is taking on the whole development duties with Sakurai directing the whole project. Sora is just a company made to handle Nintendo's contract work with Sakurai, and doesn't have actual staff.

How large a role is NBGI playing exactly? Are they doing the physics, lending themselves more to the aesthetic side, or has it even been said yet?
