No, Sakurai won't purposely avoid content. Brawl is a huge indication of that. There was a lot that didn't make it in, but we all know he was pressed for time, considering they had to set the date back twice
He won't omit anything. If something doesn't make it in on time, he'll ready it later if he wishes to do DLC.
You see, unlike Sega screwing over any hope of fixing Sonic the Hedgehog (2006)
, Sakurai actually gives a crap about quality and if he could do DLC, definitely would. If he could've done it for Brawl, trust me, there's no doubt he would've had the other stuff finished and implemented via DLC. Of course, Brawl was already beyond filled up with space, so it was probably hard to put much more into it. There's also the factor that it was all on one disc, which requires two layers to work. If it was on 2(which thanks to saves wouldn't be a problem, but would be a slight pain to switch between the two), more content would've worked, and the best part... there would be a much less amount of slowdown.
