Even if it can be proven that Lara Croft is actually important to the game industry, importance to the industry as a whole should not come before importance to Nintendo... especially when the vast majority of that industry importance is completely absent from Nintendo.
Oh but Banjo is? A character only revered by the Nintendo fanboy bubble? Okay. 👌
Xenoblade has lots of fans, and lots of people are buying the fighter DLC simply because it's fighter DLC. Furthermore, Smash Ultimate is already the most successful fighting game of all time...
How do you expect new customers to check out your game if you only have characters they don't care about? Other fighting games have guest characters so that more people buy the game outside of the core fanbase they'll always have. I can assure you the Terminator was not for Mortal Kombat fans in mind.
what does driving up game sales matter when you're already number one and still climbing anyways?
Why stop wanting to make more sales?
Also, Byleth... are going to tell me that little addition was made to drive up sales? Or what about Pirahna Plant? I'm sure they were expecting to clear whole shelves with that one s/... for the most diehard Smash fan character DLC is character DLC, who is in it doesn't matter.
Not at all. It was a ridiculous decision to add Byleth because the only purpose it to promote another game that some fans may not care for, and he's tried this several times already. You can't MAKE people care if they don't want to. Why can't Nintendo's own marketing be enough to sell the game? Lara's popularity was obviously organic.
