Possible Leaked Super Smash Bros. Character Screen Reveals Full Roster

An alleged Super Smash Bros. Wii U character screen suggests a full and final roster of warriors to enter the battle. Currently there have been 29 characters revealed within the title including newcomers like Greninja, The Villager, Little Mac, and more. The leaked screenshot below adds about 10 more characters to that mix consisting primarily of returning cast members such as Ganondorf, Captain Falcon, Ness, and Mr. Game and Watch, to name a few. Notably, there is a new Fire Emblem character next to Marth I can’t pin a name to but I believe he was a fan suggestion across message boards anticipating new reveals. That is something that concerns me about this supposed leak, some reveals are a little “too obvious”. I expect a few more oddball picks within the final roster which should be revealed soon considering Wii U & 3DS have identical rosters although the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. releases this Summer. Check it out above, what do you think?


Thanks Gearnuke

      Fake for a number of reasons… one of them being In Japanese the Ice Climbers are just called Ice Climber

    it’s fake, in Japanese Ice Climbers are always written as just Ice Climber

    Already, I see a problem: In Japan, the Ice Climbers are called “Ice Climber” without an S at the end. This screenshot has the S, so it is fake.

    The Fire Emblem Character is Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening. His signature Sword can be seen in the image.

    That HAS to be fake. The Ice Climbers, Wario, Ness and Captain Falcon artwork don’t look legit. I admit Meta Knight’s artwork looks good, but it can’t possibly be legit. Also, I think the character icons would be more closeup than before

    It’s fake.

    It implies that we have already seen all of the newcomers except Chrom. That alone stands out to me way too much.

    The Wario & Ganondorf ‘art’ are just a running animation from Brawl & TP render (respectively).

    The art for Ice Climbers, Captain Falcon, Ness look suspiciously like fan art. Ice Climbers are just called “Ice Climber” in Japan. And why would we have a full character roster for the Wii U version so early?

    I mean, the screen looks nice, but it’s got literally no new characters. We just lose 7 characters and gain 7 new ones, all of which we already know, but one.

    This is fake because there is only one Newcomer we haven’t seen yet on here. Chrom. I can assure you Chrom won’t be the only other newcomer.

            Finally Wario’s picture is from his idle animation, so is Jigglypuff’s, Captain Falcon’s and Falco’s.

          • April 23, 2014 at 2:34 PM

            Also, why would the “ready to fight” bar overlap the character names?

            Idk if this would be a legit argument also, but in the corner next to the characters name wouldn’t it say what kind of controller they are using? (gamepad, wiimote, wiimote+nunchuck, wii u pro, etc)

    Where’s Pauline (as an assist trophy?)

    Also, why doesn’t Toad finally get another chance? His final smash could be the voice actor from the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. Geno, Pac-Man and Cloud from FFVII would be rad too.

      Geno is owned by the creators of Final Fantasy and so is Cloud. Toad is part of Princess Peach’s move set and Super Mario Supershow is non-canon. Also Toad’s voice actor from Super Mario Supershow stopped voice acting in 2005 and currently resides in Canada.

        ok…I knew about Square from having played both of those games, but I take it you mean it’s because of that reason that they won’t be in the next Smash Bros. installment?

        Even though Toad was part of Princess’s defensive repertoire, he could still be a playable character, or at least an assist trophy. Zelda/Sheik appear to have been split up in this game, so why not give another nostalgic character his due?

        Oakland, do you know more about new levels?

    I almost bought it until I saw that the “Ready to fight!” banner covered the names of the characters on the bottom. That’s such a noob mistake for game design, there’s no way Nintendo would have done that.

        Unless the other characters could be come DLC. They stated they wont make a storymode for the game, but they never mentioned NOT doing DLC characters. so maybe they will return in the future as character/stage DLC packs, done in the way that would be fair for the consumers (and possibley be released after the Wii U version gets released.)

          Nintendo doesn’t do DLC… I hate them for that. I mean, you could spend time making characters for the same engine you made the game on and charge people a few bucks for a new character! What is wrong with that Nintendo!?

    “Okay… The ready to fight in Melee covered the screen so it being fake due to that makes no sense, the Ice Climbers image is not a cropped image, the position they are in is different, the colors on Gannon are brighter than the Twilight Princess guide book, and you can’t make a more “HD” version of a drawing, that drawing is colored in and even appears 3D… Also, the lighting on Meta Knights model is much different as opposed to that picture, not to mention the M on his shoulder is on his LEFT shoulder, same as the original image from Brawl ALSO his eyes are glowing and he is in a different pose as opposed to the original. Captain Falcon, Jiggly Puff and Falco all have brighter tones to their designs and Mr. Game and watch’s body is in a completely different position with his body being straight and his head tilted forward and not up.

    Really, I must also point out that the colors on Ice climbers are brighter as well along side like I said they are in a different position. ALSO, all the names of the characters that aren’t the original English names are their Japanese names and in the Japanese version of Brawl the menu’s had Japanese writing while the characters names were all still in English. LASTLY, while Wario did have his original costume in Brawl, he had much more gritty tones in his color scheme and while he may be in his idle animation, that could also be the pose they chose for him, this fact also goes for Jiggly Puff, and Falco who’s idle animation I don’t believe even match those poses… Just because Wario isn’t in his Wario Ware costume does not make it fake, they already said they would add in character customization, it could easily be an unlockable costume if this IS real”.
