There are few games that can cause the rumor mill to spiral out of control the way that Super Smash Bros. can. Ever since the game’s announcement earlier this year speculations and fan theories have been lighting the internet on fire. However, the wildest and yet somewhat believable Super Smash Bros. Ultimate leak just surfaced, and its likely to make fans very happy.
The leak comes from a user on 4chan. Which is why it should still be considered a rumor and nothing more at this point. Generally, 4chan is a very untrustworthy source for game leaks. This particular case may be different though.
The user claims to have found a video via the original sources Snapchat that quickly pans across the entire Smash Bros. Ultimate roster portrait. The original post was deleted. However, the user managed to piece together an image of the entire portrait and it revealed some incredible character reveals.
The picture is pretty hard to make out given its blurry image quality. Users have since outlined silhouettes in the portrait that they believe to represent eight new fighters.
-Shadow the Hedgehog – Sonic The Hedgehog
-Banjo-Kazooie – Banjo-Kazooie
-Issac – Golden Sun
-KOS-MOS – Xenoblade Chronicles 2
-Ken – Street Fighter
-Mach Rider – Mach Rider
-Geno – Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
-Chorus Kids – Rhythm Heaven
As you can see many of these characters are ones that fans have been begging Nintendo for, for a while now. Which is why it does make it a little fishy that so many of them happen to be revealed in this portrait. Of course, characters like Mach Rider and Kos-Mos kind of make it more believable considering those weren’t ones that many people probably saw coming.
If this leak is revealed to be true, then fans of Nintendo’s ultimate fighting franchise are sure to be ecstatic as this is one of the best possible scenarios for the final roster. It also begs to answer a lot of questions like if Nintendo has a future planned for series like Golden Sun and Mario RPG considering we are seeing these characters return.
For now, we simply will not be able to tell. Most likely these answers will be revealed in Nintendo’s Direct that is supposed to come to us next month. Until then I guess we will have to anxiously wait in excitement to see if the big ‘N’ has finally delivered the dream Smash roster.
