First Appearance: Mother 3 (GBA, 2006)
Favourite Appearance: Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii, 2008) - to be fair, however, I have not played Mother 3
Known For: Being in Mother 3, appearing outside of Japan for the first time in Brawl, being relegated to DLC
Excitement Factor: 6/10 - On the one hand, it's neat to see Lucas coming back (especially with rumors -however false they are- that Mother 3 might be released internationally via Virtual Console). On the other hand, I never used Lucas much, and he's still going to be a partial clone of Ness. With all of the other clones we have already, and rumors that Fire Emblem's Roy might be returning in the future, I find myself wanting some new and unique DLC characters.
(Please give us the Inkling as a DLC fighter)
For now, however, Lucas will do just fine.
