Background: Jim is an earthworm with a super space suit that just fell out of the sky. Let’s see, his nemesis is a goldfish, his catch phrase is “groovy!”, the princess he rescues is called Princess What’s-Her-Name (who is crushed by a random flying cow)… Just your basic run-and-gun platform game, right?

Reasoning: Bringing back a classic character, one that has a comic element to him but also retains the hero initiative and action-packed intensity.

Probability: Not groovy. No chance. No way. Not happening. Originally he was a Sega character but last I heard he was on the Xbox 360 and that is a big red flag.

Thoughts: He is nostalgic to me, but I fear he is irrelevant these days. It’s too bad, his games were quite fun and I could definitely see him in SSB4 fitting right in. I’d like to at least see a trophy if not an assist trophy for him.
