Rumor: Another Super Smash Bros. Character Select Screen Appears Online

Nintendo recently dedicated a full Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. This direct also saw the announcement of two brand new characters, Charizard and Greninja. Now it appears that another character select screen of Super Smash Bros. has made its way online, and this one shows way more character than what are currently announced, but this one is in Japanese.

The only issue im seeing here is Ice Climbers since Sakurai said theyd be an issue to pull off on the 3DS. But hey,since Rosalina & Luma seem to be a much more technical version of them, maybe they are in. Also since this is the "Japanese version" of the game, shouldn't they just be called "Ice Climber" like in Brawl and Melee.

If you bring back Squirtle, I will love you forever Sakurai.

I think that limitation had more to do with Zelda/Shiek's transformation or Samus/Zero Suit Samus' suit exchanges. Hence why both have been omitted.

I want them to leave 2-3 characters unknown that WE the gamers have to figure out once we get the game, who they are.

* Then the first person to get it, will post it online and it will be this huge surprise.

Those who love that character will scramble to accomplish whatever task it takes to unlock them.

It will be like a group community game within a game.

This would have been very easy for someone to just make. All the pictures of the characters look like they were pics that were cut from google images. Plus the only character that hasn't been announced already or isn't a returning character is Chrom. Would have been very easy for someone to fake. IMO this probably isn't the official character select screen. Though I guess it could be the starting characters with others having to be unlocked.

I'm personally hoping this ISN'T real, only because this roster seems rather bare bones. I would hope that there are more characters to unlock. If not, then I won't be upset, but still. It would be kind of disappointing if they revealed every single new fighter prior to launch.

Concertoine1215d ago

sakurai did say that the roster may be smaller or equal to brawl's to trim out clones and balance it better.

4logpc1215d ago

seems odd that there would be 39 characters. Might sounds stupid but i feel like Nintendo would go with a solid number like 40.

videgamenext11215d ago

I heard 50 was the final roster number

DialgaMarine1215d ago

There has to be more. No way would there be no unlockable characters.
i just hope it's a lot more than 11.

sinncross1215d ago

Well Brawl has 39 characters. Melee had 26. So, I dont think there is any evidence that Nintendo would go for a solid number like 40.

videgamenext11215d ago

40 is just way to less of a number.

Skate-AK1215d ago

We will just have to see. I like that list though. Good variety.

-Foxtrot1215d ago

I hope there's more characters, some of them from past games like Falco for example might end up being clone characters

I highly doubt they wouldn't include at least Shulk, Krystal, Isaac, King K. Rool or Mewtwo...I mean Jigglypuff/Greninja but no Mewtwo.

trenso11215d ago

why would jigglypuff be in the game? That character has been in smash bros since the first one on the N64. And i don't think we will have clone characters this time around they seem to be varying roster a lot

randomass1711215d ago

Jigglypuff is part of the original 12, so I think she'll be in no matter what. Crossing my fingers on Shulk and Pac-Man.

jonatan2211214d ago

I wonder if they would include Jigglypuff though, it is one of the first pokemon to be in SSB, but then I feel like the game would be oversaturated with pokemon :p
