It was a long shot... and she didn't make it after all. At least the new characters they did show (Corrin and Bayonetta) look like interesting characters to play. Sorry, Krystal fans. Take heart that Nintendo has a very hard job here. No matter who was chosen, many people would be disappointed. They're trying to make the best games they know how.
