Super Smash Bros. for 3DS footage leaks, confirms new several characters

Below contains spoilers for Super Smash Bros. on 3DS and potentially the Wii U. While only a fighting game it could spoil the next few weeks of announcements.

Read on at your own peril.




Last week there were a couple of images leaked of the alleged final character roster for Super Smash Bros for 3DS. Like most Smash Bros. rumours that come in the form of images it was easy to shake off the images as fake. Fighting game rosters are quite easy to Photoshop, all things considered.

That leak was said to confirm that Duck Hunt Dog, Dr. Mario, Dark Pit, Bowser Jr and Xenoblade’s Shulk as playable fighters. Like most, the fact that there was Duck Hunt Dog threw off most people.


Now (shaky) footage of the game has emerged showing both Bowser Jr and Shulk in action, game footage unlike screenshots would be a lot harder to fake. This footage now corroborates the earlier screenshots as true, the returning lineup and the characters omitted are likely also true.

We’re not going to post the video / embed it but if you so wish to find it then it’s here.

Then again, this could just be a really good fake.


What's your reaction?
Oh wow!

    Nintendo removed the video and filed a copyright claim againt it, which pretty much proves it was legitimate.

    Wonder if they’ll do a Mario Kart 8 and fake diversity. partial differences in vehicle part stats in that game are meaningless, for example a car configuration that offers 2.5 notches in acceleration is just as good as a car configuration that offers 2.9 through to 2.0 acceleration.

    It’s designed to give the impression of deep vehicle customization when it is actually quite shallow :/ and Mario Kart 8 was a very important game for them so it wouldn’t surprise me if something similar happens in Super Smash Bros. and a lot of characters end up having similar/duplicate move lists.
