Francis is a large chameleon and stereotypical nerdy gamer that would fit great in the world of Smash Bros. He has many interesting moves like going invisible and using his laptop, camera, and cat-themed gadgets like Meowbombs. His videogame collection could also be used as weapons. His final smash could trap the fighters in an anime dating-sim where the attack is chosen from an RPG-like menu. His stage could be his 8-bit themed Fort Francis.
I'm a little concerned that Nintendo is outsourcing this... I'm afraid it will just be the same ole iphone games but with a Mario skin. When instead we could have a port of Professor Layton or something like Kirby Mass Attack
"Our new business alliance with DeNA consists of two parts. One is to jointly develop and operate gaming apps that use Nintendo IP, for smart devices. The other is to build together Nintendo’s new online membership service."
BUT that might mean that Gamepad/Pro-controller support may be coming to Wii disc games in the future that use the Classic Controller.
EDIT: It's technically not identical to Wii discs... because Wii discs send you to the Wii home screen where you have to select the Disc Channel. SMG2 digital skips that step and boots you straight into the game. Hopefully that feature comes to Wii discs too.

In an interview with Koichi Hayashida... “This is maybe a little bit of a strange story, but we never really went out of our way to decide on the sex of these characters, even though they have somewhat gendered appearances,” Hayashida said. “But I think what I can say is that Toadette and Toad are not siblings -- perhaps it would be more accurate to say they are adventure pals. And that’s certainly true here [in Captain Toad].”
Hayashida also clarified that Toads are not mushrooms.
"The Add On Content packs include classics like Wario’s Gold Mine from Mario Kart Wii, as well as new courses, some taking place in the worlds of The Legend of Zelda and Animal Crossing. New vehicles will also arrive with each pack, including the Blue Falcon kart representing the F-Zero franchise in the first AOC pack."
"Meta Knight's Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move."
I was surprised because I had not heard of such a thing. It was basically a 3DS with a headstrap. You could play VR games or use it like a normal 3DS. The dream felt so real I actually googled for it when I woke up.
