Hah, looks like I pressed a lot of buttons with my little shpeal.
After the initial run of Kid Icarus and its GameBoy Sequel, the creator had said he would never create another Kid Icarus game. About 15 years later: Kid Icarus: Uprising was released for the 3DS.
I never take a "Never" at face-value.
As a rebuttal, I'd point out that all of your examples occurred quite a significant length of time later than the original from which they'd spawned... However, you do make a good point.
I'll admit that the extra material I've seen from the 4LS artists (Secret Santa arts and such) seem to suggest that 4LS themselves do have a bit of attachment to the world of Yamaku, and would like to see it fleshed out more, and I'd certainly welcome that.
And I'm thinking Banryu missed the point of the word "hypothetical"...
Nobody's expecting anything at all but if there were no point in discussing things that might never be, that word wouldn't exist in the first place.
You don't see the point in having fun? Shame on you! Shame! That's all we're doing. Just shooting the breeze, throwing out ideas, seeing what people can come up with, that sort of thing.
I'm not really a 'hypothetical' kind of person-- I don't see the sense in imagining what could have been if you could get that one date with an unmarried Scarlet Johansson, or what other 3rd party characters would be cool in Brawl, etc. etc.-- But, I sometimes forget that that's my opinion and not necessarily a correct outlook. Forgive me for attempting to impose my views on the thread. *bows*
Still, upon further consideration, it's not like there's not still room for hypotheses on events that still have a probability of occurring, and admittedly a continuation of the Yamaku universe isn't so far out of the realm of possibility as... other things. So yeah, I'll take it back.
But I'd still rather keep my expectations low, so I'm not disappointed if no sequel happens, if it's all the same to y'allz. >3>

Awwww, no other reason than to just have fun, and use our imaginations. Honestly, its better than yet another "I HAZ TEH FEELZ!" thread isn't it?
True enough I suppose.

I won't disagree with the first two but you have no evidence of the lattermost. *w*
Sorry for dragging the thread so far off-topic.
