Nintendo will reveal a new Super Smash Bros. character this Monday, July 14th, the publisher said over Twitter.

 

The character will be revealed via the game’s official website via a 3-minute video at 11 pm JST.

 

No further details have been announced yet.

 

Update: Director Masahiro Sakurai has posted the following message on Miiverse:

  • Tonton Ramos

    Just one character? After EVO? Hmmm might be Chrom… or Shulk… or maybe Simon Belmont/Solid Snake…

  • Triplicity

    So I guess we can count out a new character announcement at EVO itself, eh?

    • ForteWily

      To be honest, I don’t think that EVO is the proper venue for such an announcement. Nintendo tightly controls the character announcements, there would be issue for that at EVO (both among the staff, and the Melee community).

      • anthony apduhan

        Awww but Mewtwo and Roy would be perfect announcements for Evo as well as “returning wavedashing and l-canceling” ._.

        • ForteWily

          Yeah. That is not happening again… You want that, I suggest that you keep playing Melee.

          • anthony apduhan

            Nah man I don’t mind if those two things and two characters wouldn’t return I’m okay with it…

          • ForteWily

            You are, I am… But a very vocal minority isn’t.

            I am careful around such…

          • Tonton Ramos

            Personally I wanted to play this game in peace but I don’t like constant annoyances from “competitives” every time I see their complaints It makes me feel sick in my tummy. I’m not a complainer but other people do and unless they get what they want they won’t shut it.

        • 하세요

          Oh heavens, please keep that nonsense in Melee ._.

          • anthony apduhan

            okay fine just maybe two characters… I don’t mind if that “nonsense” wouldn’t return…

          • Tonton Ramos

            wavedashing and l-canceling exclusive only on the WiiU… lol!

      • Triplicity

        Good point. I agree.

      • jugss

        Maybe a veteran for EVO? then a newcomer on July 14th.

        • ForteWily

          No, I don’t see that happening.

          • Tonton Ramos

            Don’t be hopeless unless it’s after TGS…

          • ForteWily

            Last that I checked, Nintendo avoids the Tokyo Game Show.

  • 하세요

    Well actually:

    North America: Monday 14th July at 07:00 (PDT)
    UK: Monday 14th July at 15:00 (BST)
    AUS: Tuesday 15th July at 00:00 (AEST)

  • Sentsuizan_93

    LET THE SPECULATIONS COMMENCE!!!

    • anthony apduhan

      Isaac!

    • Tonton Ramos

      Chrom!

      • Princess_Eevee9

        I say no to him only because of that stupid leak he’s in. Issac and Dixie please.

  • anthony apduhan

    Please be Isaac/Felix/Matthew or Ray MK whatever (sighs) maybe todays pic of the day might give a hint…

    • 하세요

      “Taiko Don beats his way into the fray!”

    • Triplicity

      Dig-Dug Pumps It Up!

    • ZEROthefirst

      If it’s a Golden Sun rep I’d bet more on Isaac or Matthew, more so Isaac since he was an assist trophy in Brawl. Kind of hoping even if this trailer isn’t for him that he makes it in, because of all the big assist trophies shown off during that Smash Direct, Isaac wasn’t shown in there.

  • Go2hell66

    Shulk from xenoblade or Chrom

  • David García Abril

    Do we start the pools, people?

    My bet is on either Shulk or Chrom.

    Well, that’s more wishful thinking, but still. :D

    • Go2hell66

      Going by the character leaks up til now Shulk and Chrom are very likely to show up at some point

      • anthony apduhan

        or maybe *shudders* Chorus Men since todays pic of the day has included Taiko Drum for Pacman’s taunt

        • Jeremy Noble

          do not even joke about that.

        • Hagaren

          I hope not…

        • ZEROthefirst

          If that happens I will forever hate this game. Chorus Men would be the worst character to take up a slot and would be the 2nd wasted character slot since Mii Fighters can only be used locally or with friends only online. So for tourney purposes as well as random matches they’re just wasting roster space. Granted I don’t plan to use them anyways, but it’s a bit irritating to see that there’s a character that can’t be used outside of local play or with friends.

          • Norman Fong Ochoa

            Wasted in the sense of avaliability? Of course I don’t know about the Chorus Men.
            Sorry if this sounds offensive, by the way…
            Also, your hatred is unjustified, because only for two sinners a whole bunch of fair ones can’t pay.

          • ZEROthefirst

            lol I didn’t mean it literally when I said I would forever hate this game, just saying that because I REALLY don’t want the Chorus Men to be in the game. I can see an assist trophy with them or something along those lines making sense, but as far as an actual character goes I can’t see it.

          • Norman Fong Ochoa

            Well.. that solves everything. I add I heard about the Chorus Men today, so their role as an assist trophy is plausible.
            Honestly, what’s so special about Gematsu? Do they have moles in the developing team to leak the characters?

          • http://level6-shift.tumblr.com Level Six Shift

            Am I the only one who wants the Chorus Men in the game? I loved the Rhythm Heaven games

          • celery

            I’d LOVE to have them in the game. Rhythm Heaven definitely deserves more representation, and the Chorus Boys would be so fun and unique to play as!

            So far, it seems like Pac-Man is being incorporated VERY well; his quirkiness definitely fits in with the rest of the game. So as long as the Chorus Boys are made well (which I’m sure they would be, considering what an amazing team is working on these games) I’d welcome them with open arms.

          • Rasputing

            Rhythm Heaven is big in Japan, the DS game supposedly sold 1.5 million in that territory alone. It makes Xenoblade seem obscure. A rep from it wouldn’t be strange at all. And, a rhythm based fighter would be a cool niche.

    • God
  • Egil

    SHULK SHULK SHULK SHULK SHULK!!

    • Heropon

      RIKI SNEAKY!

  • CureMarine

    I know it won’t be but deep down I hope it’s Bayonetta…

  • Namuro

    Hmm… I’d like Medusa to be in, actually!

  • Jeremy Noble

    Betting on Shulk just so that you will know our names will be in

    • Egil

      i see what you did there you sly fox

  • D. Collins

    It’s Terry Bogard. RISING TACKLE!

  • Red Anti-hero

    Calling it now guys it’s Sting.
    Why else would he tweet about this date anyway? Lol

  • s07195

    “You can play another game, don!”

  • Hexodious

    Going with the most unlikely case, a character from any Atlus franchise.

  • Hagaren

    Am I the only one who would like to see Rayman (Origins/Legends one) in this? Now sure, there are other characters who deserve a spot on the roster more and we’re probably not going to see another non-Nintendo character but, hey, maybe down the line as DLC?

  • James Enk

    something from Xenoblade? more than a character from the game i would love to see a stage

    • Kaetsu

      Gaur Plains stage!

    • Heropon

      it definitely Riki because Riki is the Heropon . Heropon’s breath makes monster sick!

  • Jeremy Noble

    By New Challengers, does that mean old ones as well or just newbies? Will be shocked if Ness or Captain Falcon are not in.

    • http://youtube.com/user/Chubunater Chubunato

      I don’t think you don’t need to worry about Ness & Captain Falcon. Smash 4 already has items and assist trophies from their game series. Same goes for Wario

  • silverplat

    Rhythm Heaven character?

  • Arizato

    Please be Travis Touchdown or Flynn from SMTIV!

    • Venus in Furs.

      I was just talking with my brother, trying to come up with characters that would be feasible for Smash Bros, and we both agreed that Jack Frost could definitely make it. Especially since SMTxFE is still in the works…

      But seriously, if Ness isn’t announced I am going to be devastated.

  • jugss

    newcomer? omg I’m excited

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    My prediction:
    It’s either the “Squid Girl” from Splatoon, Captain Toad, or(unlikely as it is) Bayonetta.

    • Kaetsu

      I’d be cool with any of those but unless Sakurai knew about Splatoon early in development(which he could have) I don’t they’d have enough time to make the character. Captain Toad maybe since he was in 3D World before Treasure Tracker and Bayonetta which would be awesome!

    • ThunderGod_Cid

      Sticks the Badger from Sonic BOOM could also be in it.

  • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

    My raging clue is saying FE….. Oh so much clue glue wants to shoot out

    • ZEROthefirst

      Oohh let’s follow your raging clue~

      • http://natenayshun.tumblr.com/ Rikku Ishida

        Oh dear shall we… My clue points to Chrom… <3

  • http://people.ign.com/rob1610 rob1610

    Great. Now I’m going to spend the entire weekend in agony waiting for the reveal. I never thought I’d say this, but right now I want to skip the weekend and go straight to Monday…

  • http://youtube.com/user/Chubunater Chubunato

    Hmm i guess all the other newcomers after the Monday’s reveal they didn’t make cool trailers for them and probably trying to keep them secret until the game drops. At least i hope so.

    • Kaetsu

      It’s a livestream event. They’re most likely going to have a trailer you can watch.

      • http://youtube.com/user/Chubunater Chubunato

        I meant for the other newcomers after this one.

    • doubleO7

      All he said was “nearing the bottom of the stash” not “this is the last one.” That sounds to me like they still have more reveal trailers, just not many.

  • fairysun

    New character?
    Come on Nintendo, save some for the next Smash!

    P.S. Any hint of which game the character is a star of?

    • Kaetsu

      They still have tons of characters they could add to Smash even with all the characters they’ve been adding to this one. On top of that Nintendo will have released many games by the time the next Smash comes out so that’s even more characters to choose from.

      There have been no hints given as to whom will be revealed.

      • doubleO7

        The characters don’t necessarily have to be from games that are already out. Roy showed up in Melee before he starred in his own FE title.

    • Eder García

      read the gematsu leak if you are curious

  • Tony F.

    Why not DECAPRE? ¯(°_o)/¯

  • ZEROthefirst

    Isaac from Golden Sun, Isaac from Golden Sun, etc., etc.

    • Theob Vious Choice

      All of my yes. More RPG rep.

    • PreyMantis

      Isaac is one of my prediction. The others are Captain Rainbow, Chrom, Robin, Shulk, Dillon, Malo, Sakura Samurai, Splatoon character, and Dixie Kong.

      • Rasputing

        Dillon got deconfirmed awhile ago as an Assist Trophy.

        R.I.P. My armadillo buddy, R.I.P.

    • JoJo_718

      The question is, should it be the original Isaac or his Dark Dawn older appearance?

    • Captain Bananoz!

      You forgot one. Isaac from Golden Sun.

  • Kevin Lima Ferreira

    I hope it’s Snake!

  • Spirit Macardi

    As unlikely as it is, if it turns out to be Klonoa then that would get me to buy this game again.

    • raymk

      Again? So you aren’t going to buy it just cause a 3rd party character isn’t in that you wanted? lol

      • Norman Fong Ochoa

        I agree. A Nintendo fan is NOT a Nintendo fan if he or she is not a fan of its characters.

        • Theob Vious Choice

          I do not think they said they were a “Nintendo fan”.

          • Norman Fong Ochoa

            Hmmm… just in case…

    • Terraforce77

      We already have one Namco rep and three third party characters. Klonoa’s chances are slim to none.

    • Seth Rich

      Given how much Namco references that game, or they at least did in the tales games, I find it surprising he hasn’t made the cut. Namco is working on the game, so why can’t they cheat a little and add another character like Klonoa?

  • Strawberry Starlet

    MARIBELLE. From Fire Emblem. Yknow, she’d like, come in on her horse and start…. healing… people… Well I can DREAM Can’t I?

    • AuraGuyChris

      Don’t you mean Maribelle?

      • Strawberry Starlet

        Wow. That’s embarassing. Misspelled my favorite characters name. Haven’t played in too long it seems… Edited. Thanks!

  • Serge
  • http://www.myspace.com/Juan_Rod bluejuan85

    I’m placing my bet on either The Chorus Men or Shulk being announced.

  • BleuVII

    Come on Wreck-It Ralph. It needs to happen.

  • iGlen

    LANA FROM HYRULE WARRIORS!?
    KRYSTAL FROM DINASOUR PLANET!?
    BOMBERMAN!?

    • idrawrobots

      where are you on Doshin the Giant?

      • iGlen

        What are you talking about lol

        • idrawrobots

          At least have a stage from this game.

          • iGlen

            Wut the.. How come I’ve never seen this game

          • idrawrobots

            It’s one of those weird games made around the time they were doing Animal crossing and Cubivore.

          • iGlen

            Lmao, is it good?

          • idrawrobots

            I don’t know. it never came out in the US. It looked fun.

          • iGlen

            It looks weird though.. Lmao

          • idrawrobots

            Have you ever seen Cubivore? that is super weird. So much so that Nintendo didn’t even release it here Atlus picked it up for the US release.
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs9VvvL_EJE

          • iGlen

            Wtf lmfao

          • Norman Fong Ochoa

            There’re some trophies in SSBM.

          • iGlen

            I never knew it was from that game omg lmao

    • AuraGuyChris

      They seem to have retconed Krystal and everything that happened after SF64, if that Wii U demo of the next SF suggests.

      • doubleO7

        I don’t think we know enough about it to say that yet. We don’t even know when the game takes place, or if the characters in the demo were the only characters in the game.

  • https://www.youtube.com/user/BaoZakeruga BaoZakeruga

    Hoping for Shulk. Will be happy with the chorus men though too since I’m curious how they’ll play.

  • darryl scott

    shulk, chorus men, and that other guy from fire emblem is all we got left. the leaked roster been right so far

  • idrawrobots

    I am going to be so outraged if all of the originals are not in this game!

  • MikelAL93

    *Crosses fingers for Chrom*

    • TokkanRAM

      I’d prefer Robin/Avatar/MU.

      • James Todd

        i would like to see that balancing sword and magic for combos and special attacks

        • God

          I’d prefer a pure magical unit, for variety’s sake, but the only Main Character who fits the bill (Micaiah) is old and widely hated by the fanbase…

  • Cephrien

    Shuuuuuulk come ooon, let’s GO! > A < *crossing fingers*

  • PowerSerg

    *Crosses fingers for fire emblem character that isn’t chrom*

  • AuraGuyChris

    Suspiciously, the date falls on the same day F-Zero X came out in Japan.

  • Kaibun

    Please be the Chrous Men, I can’t wait to see how a Rhyhtm Heaven character is even going to play like.

  • carlospsp

    Captain Falcon, obvious

  • carlospsp

    I wish It were Shantae

  • Benjie Moffett

    Any of you thinking it’s a returning character, it won’t be. Other then Charizard, and Mr Game and Watch no veterans have been predominantly featured in a new challenger video.

  • subsamuel01

    Probably Captain Falcon or Ness, I think their announcement is long overdue.

    • Norman Fong Ochoa

      He probably meant a new challenger; of course Captain Falcon and Ness are taken for granted to appear since Items and Assist trophies have been confirmed (like Samurai Goroh).
      Do you like the newcomers?

  • Ket

    But Monday’s so far away!

  • Justin Graham

    It’s time for SHULKAMANIA!

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Shulk. The setup is too significant for a returning character.

  • Alucard Violandi

    Please be Shadow the hedgehog!!! or even Zero from Megaman Or Mewtwo PLZZZ

    • Chaos_Knight

      Shadow is confirmed to be an Assist Trophy again.

      • Snorlaxation

        Aw. Well… least he’s still in the game…

    • Timothy Kalahar

      Because it is classic Megaman and not X, it would have to be Protoman or Bass instead of Zero. Zero would be awesome though. I’m happy they included the boy in blue at all (I was raised on Megaman).

      • Alucard Violandi

        i Love mega man. i just wish he Wasnt so small. they should have made look like mega man from Megaman 8 or MVC height. if they we’re gonna go classic like Megaman 1 and 2 then they should have done the same with Sonic. That why i kinda wish it would have been Megaman X in stead of Classic. Plus X has alot more to offer the classic does.

  • Blackburn7

    Still waiting for Dixie Kong.

  • Chaos_Knight

    I had a feeling NIntendo/Sakurai would reveal a new character after EVO.

    • God

      Let’s just hope it’s Neku.

  • Prinnydoom

    Fire emblem rep. Fire emblem rep. Fire emblem rep. Fire emblem rep. Do it. Do it. Do it.

    • BADBADBADGER

      Imagine if ANNA.

      • celery

        I’m fairly certain it’s Chrom at this point, but Anna would actually be awesome. She could be a Trickster, using a Levin Sword, so she shouldn’t be a -typical- sword user. And she would represent Awakening, but also the franchise as a whole since she’s been in a few other titles.
        But sadly, that’s quite unlikely at this point ;-;

  • mojack411

    I’m still holding onto the glimmer of hope that an Inkling will be playable.

  • 栗場 江理久

    July 14th? DAS MY BIRTHDAY. ITS ME EVERYONE, IM GOING TO BE PLAYABLE IN THE NEW SMASH BROS. watch out world,it’s my time to shine~

  • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Thief ♢

    Gimme something Mother related pls Mr Samurai ;_;

  • Juan Pablo Gonzalez

    either Lloyd or Shulk please ; ;

  • shenlong234

    I hope they reveal an obscure NES character.

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      Takamaru!

  • Timothy Kalahar

    Isaac from Golden Sun would be amazing! Or Protoman to balance out the Megaman universe, Shadow/Knuckles to balance the Sonic Universe, or Bomberman because… well… Bomberman. Although, I would like to see another kick-ass lady fighter in the roster. Toon Zelda and Tetra would be awesome additions.

    • JuhRo

      I’m all for Golden Sun awareness.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        I approve of these two messages. Now I’m torn between Bomberman or Isaac. TnT

        • Timothy Kalahar

          Unfortunately, it’s probably not going to be either… :(

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Am cry.

      • Sentinel

        Exactly. Golden Sun needs some awareness. I’m afraid of the possibility of it falling completely into obscurity since I don’t see Camelot making another one.

        • JuhRo

          Especially cause the long awaited #3 tanked due to Camelot failing to adjust to the next generation.
          HD version on the Vita or Wii U, I’d take.

          • Sentinel

            You do realize that Vita would be impossible because Nintendo owns Golden Sun, correct?

          • JuhRo

            …..they could always branch out…? :DD I always thought Nintendo and Sony could share a bit. :(

    • Chersea

      Bomberman is by Konami now that they absorbed Hudson Soft, right?
      I doubt he’lll get in,

      • Timothy Kalahar

        When can we tear down these walls of oppression between gaming systems? Segregation is wrong! What would 16-bit Ronald Reagan do?

  • Bandana Dee

    According to the gematsu leak, it should be Shulk, Chrom or the Chorus Men.
    But the leak never predicted Rosalina, so it still could be anything.
    I would like it to be Shulk or the Chorus Men, because I just started playing their games yesterday, and that would be a really funny coincidence.

    Plus: I want to see what kind of moveset the Chorus Men would get.

    • Kaetsu

      The writer for Xenoblade Chronicles re-tweeted the announcement so I think we’ll be seeing Shulk on Monday.

      • Kalis Konig

        Yep that seals it

      • Skye Johnson

        I’m hoping that, as well. So excited to play as Shulk if the rumors are true.

    • Norman Fong Ochoa

      Gematsu don’t seem to be that special. Do they have some moles in Sakurai’s team to do the leaks?

    • Tijani Palmer

      I’m suprised that Bandana Waddle Dee doesn’t want himself in the game

      • Bandana Dee

        lol. Well, that’s a character that I wouldn’t be angry if it wasn’t in smash but I would LOVE if it was.
        But the way that Sakurai says “we’re nearing the bottom of the stash”cand the fact that there’s just 3 characters of the gematsu that haven’t been announced, reduces the chances for a lot of new challengers.
        So… as much as I would love it, I don’t think I’ll be in this Smash :(

        • Tijani Palmer

          hey man cheer up there’s always mods. :D

        • Captain Bananoz!

          I was actually thinking that Bandana Dee would have a chance, due to the fact that King Dedede only throws Gordos now.

          • Bandana Dee

            But Waddle Dees are enemies in Smash Run. -_-
            (Although that never stopped me in Return to Dreamland…)

        • celery

          Well, he says “we’re nearing the bottom of the stash of new challenger videos.” He mentions “videos” specifically. Unless he plans on revealing ALL newcomers before the game even releases, there could be some who don’t have videos made for them, because they were planned on being kept secret from the get-go. I honestly hope that’s what he means, because as much as I hope the Gematsu Leak is true, I hope that’s not all that remains of our newcomers.

    • Captain Bananoz!

      I didn’t like the Gematsu leak, mainly because some of my favorite characters who I was hoping for like Isaac, Bandana Waddle Dee, and the Splatoon Inkling didn’t get in…

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    Please be Takamaru!

  • Linhua

    … Shulk, or I will Sulk .-.

    … seriously, I would LOVE to see how he sees the future in the middle of a Brawl Fight.

  • Kalis Konig

    The Gematsu leak is pretty much confirmed at this point. Sakurai even claims they are at the bottom of the barrel now. there are only 3 Gematsu newcomers left. SMH sorry K.Rool, Isaac, Ridley, Krystal, Takamaru, Mewtwo, Sceptile, Toad, Daisy, and Ghirahim fans.

    • DrakeClawfang

      I’m not even sure K. Rool could be included. They’ve left him out of the DKC revival, maybe there’s a copyright snafu because of Rare making the original DKC and they can’t use him.

      • LordTerminal

        Oh god not this again. NO! There is no legal snafu regarding K. Rool. Kremlings are Smash Run enemies and even before that, K. Rool was in Mario Super Sluggers. Where the hell are you people getting this idea? It’s been proven wrong in the past.

        • DrakeClawfang

          I suggested it because it’s happened before. The credits for Super Mario RPG specify Geno is the property of Square-Enix so maybe Rare had a similar thing with K. Rool. Calm the fuck down.

      I really want Takamaru! :c
      But I don’t know why people are saying Sceptile, Blaziken fits so much more! Even if it is another fighting type Pokemon.

      • http://soulcaster.gametrailers.com/gamepad/index.php [§oulÇaster]

        I believe most people are wanting/saying Sceptile because the game is missing a grass starter representer. And in my opinion, he seems like the only grass starter that could work. Well, I guess Chesnaught could but there is already a stater representing his Gen.

        [T.O.S.C.]

        • celery

          This is exactly the reason why. Not that I think we’re getting another Pokemon in the roster, but IF there was one I think Sceptile would be the best in terms of being fair to both Types AND gens.

    • Michael Cortorreal

      The same Krystal from Star Fox or another one?

    • 栗場 江理久

      HIIMDAISY!!

  • Yuuki

    If it’s not Chrom I’ll…..I’ll…..probably still be excited,but I’ll be less excited!

  • Mc-kun

    Unless its Advance wars……I won’t be excited.

    • Tijani Palmer

      it’s going to be your loss. Advance Wars has one move: SHOOT EVERYTHING. i’m personally aiming for Bandanna Waddle Dee, ever since Kirby’s Return to Dreamland, I’ve wanted him in the game

      • Mc-kun

        I’m not 100% serious because the chances of Advance wars in the game is like me winning the lottery. If it happens it would make me happy but considering that Fire emblem is a bigger priority than Advance wars (by the same company) its not a high chance.

  • Matt V

    I had a dream last week that Shulk was revealed next…..if my dream is correct, will that mean i have some untapped super power???

    • Kornelious

      Well then your dream better be right then…OR ELSE! >:(

      Jk, lol XD

    • Matt V

      no shulk reveal today….now i’ll never believe in my dreams! :*( lol

  • DrakeClawfang

    GENO!

    • ForteWily

      Ask Square-Enix… I think.

  • Kornelious

    Shulk or Chrom/Robin…..But mostly Shulk…….DAMN IT NINTENDO TAKE THE HINT! X(

  • Vash bane

    who is the shulk everyone here keeps…..ugh asking for? also that other person @kornelious7:disqus mentions?

    • Bandana Dee

      Shulk is the main character of Xenoblade Chronicles,
      Chrom is the main character of Fire Emblem Awakening,
      and Robin is the default name for the avatar character from Fire Emblem Awakening.

  • Dylan

    Bayonetta? Possibly? Please!

  • colorblindnightmare

    I think C.Falcon, Issac or Shulk tbh.

  • Draparde

    If its a trailer , its probably not Captain falcon. since returning characters don’t get those.

    i have people i would like, but im not gonna get my hopes up that they would show and just wait for the 14 :x

  • Morningstar

    Betting on Chrom,

  • Sentinel

    I get the feeling that it’ll be Shulk, given that Monolith Soft retweeted the message, and they only do that when there’s info that concerns them.

    I won’t have a problem with that, though I do still wish for Issac.

    And, although I’m a HUGE Fire Emblem fan, I’m not desperate to see Chrom.

    • keithmaxx

      Maybe it could be Zael from the Last Story? That sounds neat to me!

  • Armageddon

    I wonder if its an original?

    • AoNoise

      Original character… in Nintendo… pfffff.

      The closest we could get would be the chick from Splatoon.

  • PragmaticSoul

    Go go go Chrom.

    Screw Robin. Chrom’s the main character so he deserves the slot.

    Or Shulk. That’d be cool too.

    • Captain Bananoz!

      Personally, now that Ike’s been confirmed, I’m not too huge of a fan for Chrom making it in as I previously was, because that would make three SWORD-WIELDING users from the Fire Emblem series in the game. I would be fine if the character they added used a lance, axe, or some sort of magic, but there isn’t much room for variety with three characters who all use swords in their movesets…

      I would be fine with Shulk, though, since he’s from a different game and would bring something new to the series. (Sort of)

      • God

        Main characters who don’t use swords… then… Ephraim?
        And Shulk is not exactly focused on damage dealing, so i think he would actually make an interesting type of sword user, if done well.

      • PragmaticSoul

        The main characters all wield swords. The ones that don’t are too old to make it in. Deal with it.

      • Timothy Kalahar

        Well, the official reveal is out and… two more sword wielders from Fire Emblem.

  • LustEnvy

    Bayonetta. Calling it now.

  • JustJam

    Bomberman!!!

    • God

      Sadly, that’s the most plausible answer.

    • Invisbin

      Do want

  • mockturtle

    Please god be Bayonetta. Please please please.

    • Dylan Cole Laufer

      Sorry. That’s called, “Zero Suit Samus”

  • Michael Cortorreal

    Hmm…if there is another character from third party I want to see is either Goemon from Mystical Ninja or ZERO! from MEGA MAN ZERO! always loved how badass he looked.

    • Timothy Kalahar

      Goemon would be so awesome! I haven’t played that in ages… takes me back.

      • Michael Cortorreal

        Well, they showed us who they are, not a bad roster of new characters…but I feel Fire Emblem is having way to many characters now.
        I also wanted Crystal from Star Fox… . _ .
        How many slots are left? three? come on Sakurai…bring Ness back…

        • Timothy Kalahar

          That was my first thought too. Never thought I’d say it, but there are honestly too many sword wielders in Smash now.

          • Michael Cortorreal

            Lets count them…there is the 4 of Fire Emblem xD Link and ToonLink…thats 6…who else?

          • Timothy Kalahar

            Mii swordfighter, pit, and metaknight (if he makes the cut). Greninja has water swords he can use, plus Kirby’s ultimate smash. I just wanted to see more variation out of the Fire Emblem series. All I wanted was to see some new weapons to explore more game dynamics. But I’m still excited about the new roster; I always played the red mage class in Final Fantasy so I am psyched about Robin.

          • Michael Cortorreal

            Dont add Greninja…most of his attacks are melee type (fists and feet).
            Also thats Kirby ult. dont count.

            Dont count the guys who use a single move with a blade as a blade user.

            To me they are different, they just have a move, not like those who are actually holding the blade all the fight like:
            Link
            Toon Link
            Ike
            Marth
            Robin
            Lucina
            Pit

  • Captain Bananoz!

    The characters that I’m betting/hoping for in no specific order are:
    -Shulk (Xenoblade)
    -Bandana Waddle Dee (Kirby)
    -Inkling (From Splatoon, which is still pretty much in development)
    -Isaac (Golden Sun, he was an assist trophy in the last game)
    Last one is possibly Ganondorf… He WAS a veteran in the last game, but a lot of people were hoping for a more original moveset, so…

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    hmmmm it would be funny if Zero or Ryu show up

    • God

      Sadly, Megaman already filled their Capcom quota… I really hope it’s a character from the Metal Gear series though, it would be awesome to see Revolver Ocelot or Gray Fox in the game…

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Yes! another character from Metal Gear other then Snake would be awesome! or Someone from Square Ahm *Neku* Ahm Sora…Ahm!! Warrior of light

        • God

          I’m not much of a Kingdom Hearts fan, but i would kill for Neku or “Warrior Of Light” (wich is the best choice for a FF character, since everyone has characters they hate and like, but WoL is neutral).
