Hideo Kojima has revealed during a Twitch Q&A session that he would love to see Snake feature in the next Super Smash Bros game for the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. Kojima said that if Sakurai is watching the stream then he should consider including Snake in the game.
“I’m not working on that game so I don’t know, but I don’t think that’s likely”, explained Kojima. That said, he certainly doesn’t seem to be against the idea, saying, “Well if Mr. Sakurai is watching this, please use Snake.”
Now I actually don’t think he fits with Smash Bros at all, so if he is in…meh fine, but I don’t think he should return at all.
