Because of this, rumours have kicked off that the Splatoon Inklings will be coming to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U as downloadable content.

Don't do it. My head would explode from the awesomeness.

Right? Imagine using specials to spray the stage with ink, and then doing some sort of squid transformation to do crazy fast movement around (and possibly even healing).

I'm imagining some sort of crazy ink counters, as well as a bunch of really cool weapon-based specials and arials. It'd be an exciting addition.

Didn't Sakurai say something about not wanting to do anymore paid DLC after Mewtwo?
I think he did.
So if this happens at all, it'll be as free characters.
But given all the time he's spent on it, and the fact that they've still gotta get the stage sharing feature and the Miiverse stage up and running before they're done, I somehow harbor doubts that he'll be doing any other characters any time soon...

From what I remember Sakurai says a lot and then does something else lol. I hope he does more DLC.

Yeah, this is a valid point, but what Sakurai says and what he does often change a lot. However, I don't think they'll put in the effort to make the characters and then make them free.

If anything, I think the fact that they're still working on the game is a good sign. If there was no new content coming then the game might be completed and done. At least we know they're still doing things with it!
