Themed quarterly or half year would probably be more suitable than individual months in terms of coordinating content to be released. Samus missed out on having her 25th anniversary officially celebrated (,same year as Zelda). Be nice for her to have more of a spotlight again but who knows when that will happen. With the items, I've noticed that we don't get the fake item boxes anymore. Come to think of it… Mario Kart 7 didn't have them, nor did the GBA Super Circuit. Oh well, we've got the horn, boomerang and piranha plant! Do you feel that there should be more characters or that they should have held back somewhat from announcing the unlockable characters?
