Two New Characters Confirmed For Super Smash Brothers Wii-U

Sometimes just asking the people behind your favorite games can actually get you results. Thanks to a fan's tweet to Sakurai, we may actually have confirmation on two new characters for the eagerly awaited sequel to Super Smash Brothers: Brawl! You just might be surprised when you see who they are.


We've been bamboozled! The original source of the information has come out and said the tweets were faked. That's why we have a rumor section!

I'm probably alone on this, but out of those 3, Geno and Issac please.

Abash2188d ago

You arent, I want it to be Geno and Isaac too.

Snookies122188d ago

If Geno is in this game, I WILL buy a WII U. No kidding... He was my favorite character in SMRPG.

MaxXAttaxX2188d ago

Seems like anyone can make an article with the word "confirmed" on it and everyone will eat it up.

PopRocks3592188d ago

Capcom's thrown Mega Man out on a loop as of late. And Nintendo actually holds licensing rights to Isaac an Geno if I'm not mistaken. So they'd be the easier and more logical of the three listed.

shackdaddy2188d ago (Edited 2188d ago )

I think it'll be Geno and Megaman. Just because fans have been dying to see Megaman in SSB for a looooong time...

If it is Geno, does that mean we'll get another SMRPG? I REALLY hope so!

Come on E3!

Shok2188d ago

Megaman just wouldn't fit in to me. That might not make sense to some of you considering there's Snake in the same game as Pikachu, but that's just how I feel.

Titanz2188d ago

Megaman would be a great character for customizations (each colour, would represent a different ability). The two obvious choices are: Geno and Isaac, with the possibility of future DLC.

Mii support (with added in character development) would be nice.

Hisiru2188d ago

Isaac is a known character, but Geno is probably in the limbo.

I think it's Isaac and Megaman.

dark-hollow2188d ago (Edited 2188d ago )

If they added snake, a character that is more associated with playstation platform then why it's weird to include megaman? A character that appeared on Nintendo consoles way more than any platform?

Oh just imagine the orchestra version of megaman 2 willy's stage!

Bahimas2188d ago (Edited 2188d ago )

check it out. The game itself is fairly simple control-wise, and once you unlock megaman he's a bit overpowered in my opinion, but it shows he could work.

dammit can we just get Lute, Soren, Calil, or some powerful magic user from FE?

dark-hollow2188d ago

Geno License rights are for squaresoft not Nintendo.
So between him and megaman the latter is more likely to show up because he is way more requested by the fans more than Geno.

CanadianTurtle2188d ago

You're not alone LOL

Everyone wanted Geno ever since Brawl news came out. But I just hope megaman isn't there. In my opinion, Smash Brothers is supposed to be a Nintendo tradition where fans can gather and celebrate the joys of being a Nintendo gamer.

Even though a lot of megaman games were originally on the NES, I feel as if it went on to too many different consoles and handhelds that it lost that "Nintendo" feel.

Disccordia2188d ago

The game has only just started development. We won't hear any news about it for at least a year

That just tells me if that's true, we will see an announcement of a new Super Mario RPG game coming to the 3DS! :)

Hisiru2188d ago

Super Mario RPG probably won't come back, it was replaced by games like Mario and Luigi (which is the same gameplay with improvements) and Paper Mario.

If you want to play Super Mario RPG you should try Mario and Luigi 3.

Y_51502188d ago

I played the first and second of Mario & Luigi games! I love em! Haven't had a chance to play the third one in the series though.

Hisiru2188d ago (Edited 2188d ago )

I can safely say that Mario and Luigi 3 is 100 times better than the first two games not just because of the story (or because you can play as bowser) but because you have a lot of cool new features/gameplay elements. I am sure you will enjoy this game. :)

Sadly, Super Mario RPG was developed by Squaresoft and Squaresoft is dead (it's a different team right now).

kesvalk2188d ago

i hope it's megaman and Issac...
