In just under a month, Smash Bros. will see itself for the first time on a handheld console, the Nintendo 3DS, on Japanese shores. It has been quite a while since we have had any character announcements, the latest one was way back in the middle of July where newcomers, Lucina and Robin, and veteran, Captain Falcon, were announced in a special live trailer. We could soon see a few more character announcements as, recently, some footage containing a few characters not yet seen have been ‘leaked’ onto YouTube. Check out the video after the break!

If this video deems itself to be the real deal, then we could see Bowser Jr. and Shulk entering the fray with Ganondorf seeing a mighty return. Usually, I would say to take this with a tiny grain of salt, however the original videos were actually taken down by Nintendo themselves, this could just mean that they don’t want people giving up their hope, but it could also mean that they want to keep these characters secret until they are announced or until the game is released.

What do you think? Is this leak legit? Who else do you want to join the fray? Tell us in the comments!

Super Smash Bros. is set to be released for 3DS on the 13th September 2014 in Japan, 3rd October 2014 in Europe and North America, and a day later in Australia. The Wii U version is set to be released during Q4 2014.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
