Will Isaac, Skull Kid, Shadow, Isabelle make it to Smash Ultimate?

Smash Bros Ultimate Leaks have stated that Skull Kid and Isabelle will later be announced as fighters. Their Assist Trophies missing also add weight to these claims.
Shadow the Hedgehog is another glaring omission that seems bound to make it into the game somehow. He could appear as an Echo Fighter for Sonic. He could also appear in the speculated Story Mode, rumored to be packed with bosses like CastleVania’s Dracula.
Isaac from Golden Sun has been in demand for years and seems more likely than ever. Nintendo owns the rights to the character. Who wouldn’t love to use Psynergy and Djinni in Smash?
With no representation from Advance Wars, we might finally see Andy as a Smash Bros Ultimate fighter. Sablé Prince and even Excitebiker are also longshots for the Smash Bros roster.
Stay tuned, as some of these characters are very likely to become Smash Ultimate fighters.
