New Mario & Sonic a disappointment

It looks like Nintendo and Sega disappointed this time for Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
First, they only have four of the seven Koopalings, and one of the three that isn't in the game is my favorite Koopaling Iggy. One of the four that is is Wendy. Why would they put in the most hated Koopaling instead of Iggy? It crossed my mind that it was because she's the only female Koopaling, but then Zeena (on the Sonic side) is the only female Zeti and yet she's not in the game, but Zavok and Zazz are. (and Zeena is way cooler than Wendy)
And that's just the 3DS version, which restricts all characters except Mario and Sonic to one or two events. Eggman Nega, whom many have longed to play as, being restricted to Long Jump which isn't one of my best events. So that version is not appealing to me at all.
Now, the Wii U version has all characters playable in all events... but they cut a few characters out. They added Boom Boom (a common miniboss) on the Mario side but cut Ludwig, Roy, and Eggman Nega. Aside from the infinite rage that I can never feel the satisfaction of playing as Eggman Nega after they teased us to make us think we finally could, Ludwig is fan favorite Koopaling, why would they ditch him instead of Wendy?
Also, the events listed don't look quite as impressive as in the London 2012 games, which is one of two games I have and my favorite by far
Also... I'm not really a fan of Rosalina's outfit (which, as seen in the 3DS trailer, I thought was her Aquatics/Gymnastics but according to the Wii U trailer it's her main). I wish they'd have given her one like Peach and Daisy's instead. And of all newcomers on the Mario side in this game, she was the only one I'd have been interested in.
And another thing too is that they chose Sticks the Badger, who is exclusive to the TV series Sonic Boom, instead of, say, Zeena or Zor.
On the positive side, they still have Espio and Wave, two of my favorite Sonic characters who aren't playable in many games. Still, that might not balance it out, even though I was once as obsessed with Espio as I am with Nesbitt, an anime villain that shares one of Espio's voice actors David Wills
So sorry Nintendo and Sega, but unless I find that Eggman Nega or Iggy are unlockable characters (and easily unlockable at that), and that the events are as good as London 2012 or better, I am not getting this game.
