Rumor: New Super Smash Bros. Images surface

New Images have surfaced online aswell as an image I myself have taken which could reveal the line-up for the new Super Smash Bros. title for the 3DS & Wii U.

Obviously for many Nintendo gamers; One of the most anticipated games of the year is quite easily Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U which will be the 4th entry in the long running series so far. Since the game was officially announced all the way back at E3 2013; Players have been clamoring for news on the final roster for the upcoming fighting game. Well if some new images are to be believed then we may have seen the final roster (Not including any possible DLC {If Included}). Before we start off with those images though, I would like to start with an image I took myself when I was browsing my local Grainger Games shop and found a Pre-Order box for the title on Nintendo 3DS. When I took a look at the back however I noticed a character selection screen which could have given away the starting roster. (Note: Since I took the image; I would just like to state that I do not know if this is confirmed proof of the starting roster but it should be taken with a grain of salt.)

Could this be the Starting Roster? Only time will tell.

Of course in the image above it does say Not Final Artwork which in turn could mean it is not the starting line-up but just assuming that it is; then players will be able to get their hands on the following fighters straight away at launch.

  • Mario
  • Bowser
  • Rosalina & Luma
  • Donkey Kong
  • Samus Aran
  • Zero Suit Samus
  • Link
  • Zelda
  • Villager
  • Pit
  • Kirby
  • Fox McCloud
  • Marth
  • Greninja
  • Pikachu
  • Pikmin & Olimar
  • Little Mac
  • Wii Fit Trainer
  • Mega Man
  • Sonic the Hedgehog

So thats quite a big starting roster if it turns out the picture on the back of the pre-order box is an actual screenshot but what about those other pictures I was talking about earlier? Well check them out here below which supposedly show you the complete roster for the game:

This shows that there is quite a few unannounced fighters including highly requested characters such as Shulk & Duck Hunt Dog however in the final image is a post from someone called & I Quote “Motherf*****g Leaker” who states that their will also be DLC fighters which are currently planned to be:

  • Lucas – Earthbound – Veteran
  • Wolf O’Donnell – Star Fox – Veteran
  • The Chorus Men – Rhythm Heaven – Newcomer
  • Ice Climbers – Ice Climber – Veteran
  • Snake – Metal Gear Solid – Veteran

As of right now; Everything I have mentioned here is currently rumor until proven true so take all of this with a huge grain of salt but if its true then it looks like we have some great characters available.

Super Smash Bros for 3DS will be available on October 3rd 2014 while Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be out this Holiday Season.

So what do you think? Which of the supposed leaked fighters do you want to play as? Would you be happy to see Snake return? Is there any other characters you want to see as Fighters some day? For me I personally want to see Professor Layton as a fighter & out of the leaked fighters; I’m excited to see if Duck Hunt Dog is real but anyway that’s just me. Be sure to let me know what you think in the comments section below and be sure to stay tuned to UGNN for all your gaming news and reviews and remember to follow us on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Reddit & YouTube.
