So, basically this whole forum will riot. We all have similar tastes. Antasma may also go the Fawful route and appear as a cameo like Fawful did with his store in PIT and then return in the next game as the main villain.
The problem is that Fawful was really popular (at least with the western audience) and thats the main reason (or one of them) why he returned. Antasma on otherhand isn't that popular. Only time will tell
Well, he is popular in Japan apparently. So maybe Antasma can catch on. True that Fawul became a fan favorite right away. I just hope they do not forget Antasma and leave him in the void with no real closure.
