Mere hours after the Youtube account Izat True leaked several video clips showing raw Super Smash Bros footage for the 3DS and revealing new characters it seems that Nintendo has stepped in and taken down the videos. This is the first time Nintendo has stepped in to remove alleged Smash Bros. leaks reinforcing the the argument that these leaks were legitimate.

Well their is everyone's proof that the leak was legit.

Yup. Duck Hunt Dog is real lol. I can live with that. :P

or they don't want idiots ruining the game they have worked hard on with all these horribly fake leaks because they have some pride in their work...

If I were working on something so hard and someone put out something so painfully fake then I'd have it taken down too.

Why do they need to make a big production of removing it when anyone with intelligence and tell it's fake.

randomass171878d ago

I don't think so. Why would they bother removing this so quickly and quietly if it wasn't real?

ChickeyCantor877d ago

In what way was it fake? There was even in game footage.

SpiralTear878d ago

I'm actually surprised that it took them this long to take them down.

So dark pit and doctor Mario are really in but ice-climbers are cut?
Dark pit is literally just a re-color, why not Hades instead.. we need more villains.
Dorf continues to be a clone while Sakurai panders to himself in the new smash lol.
w/e i'm happy shulk is in.
The leaker said their were 3 more characters he didn't show, one from DK one from pokemon and one from a different series.
hopefully the DK is K.rool and not dixie.

NintySonySoft878d ago

If it is K. Rool Drinks on me all night!

--Onilink--877d ago

well, we havent actually seen anything about dark pit, he might a different moveset/weapons.. i doubt it, but who knows.

As for Dr Mario, he was similar to toon link in the sense that some moves had different properties. We can also assume he will have a different final smash and a special move to replace the FLUDD. So he can be less clonish.

Hopefully Lucas, Wolf and Ice Climbers are not out though. If this roster is the same as previous games, there is at least 1 character missing, because its only after you unlock everyone that the roster distribution is grouped a bit more into franchises

Rosalina is the new Ice Climbers, dude.
A partner that can be re-summoned if it dies and can be controlled from any distance away, and an up B special that isn't dependent on your partner being alive to work.
You've got all the advantages of double-teaming people that the Climbers had, plus benefits.
You'll be satisfied with her, I can promise you that.

deafdani877d ago

As soon as I saw Rosalina & Luma in that reveal trailer, I knew they would control somehow like the Ice Climbers, and that actually made me fear the Ice Climbers would be replaced... just like Lucario replaced Mewtwo.

I really like Rosalina & Luma, but I hope the Ice Climbers return as well. I don't want them to go away! :(

ZeekQuattro877d ago

Its Cranky Kong!!! Sorry couldn't resist. lol I hope its K. Rool as well. I mean Kremlings do appear as stage hazards in Smash Run so its possible

Big_Game_Hunters877d ago

i would want cranky over Dixie.

Here it is lol

Kalebninja877d ago

Ok the only character I have any hope of now is chibi robo ;-; rip wonder red and ghirajhim. I'm gnna cry cause I feel its bayonneta. Also screw sakurai keeping the same ganon......actually ganon is what makes me think its fake I mean while Zelda and link are noticably different he looks exactly the same and fights exactly the same... Maybe its some really good brawlvault mods?

Metallox877d ago

Wonder Red was confirmed as a trophy long time ago.

Kalebninja877d ago

What does that have to do with what I said? I was just saying the only other 2 characters I wanted other than chibi-robo it had nothing to do with when they were de-confirmed...

Metallox877d ago

"rip wonder red". By guess and according to the context of your whole comment, I thought that you felt bad by the absence of Wonder Red, but he's available as a trophy. I just said as a clarification.
