Following a leak last month, we now have solid evidence on just who made the cut for Nintendo's upcoming fighting game. A Twitch streamer somehow got an early copy of the game and started playing it in its entirety yesterday. As a result the streamer unlocked every character in the game, revealing even those which Nintendo is set to confirm tomorrow. The list of leaked characters goes like this: Doctor Mario, Dark Pit, Bowser Jr. (Koopalings as alt costumes), Ness, Duck Hunt Dog, Mr. Game & Watch, ROB, Wario, Ganondorf, Falco, and Jigglypuff. This means Solid Snake, Wolf, Ice Climbers, and Lucas are not in the 3DS game. However, Nintendo has recently begun getting into the DLC business, so those four characters and others may be implemented further down the line. Hold out hope Paperboy, you might get your chance.
Super Smash Bros 3DS will be released on October 3, 2014. The Wii U version of the game has no official release date.
What character not included do you grieve for? Anyone one the final list that you think shouldn't be? Let us know in the comments.
If You Ask Me: Not putting in Wolf makes sense, and to a certain degree so does Lucas. Snake was probably a one time deal, so he's another that I can understand cutting. However, removing Ice Climbers and adding in something as heinously bland as Dark Pitt? Boo on you Smash Bros, boo I say.
