Alleged Super Smash Bros. leak reveals 3 new characters

Pictures, videos show several new and old fighters

An alleged leak of Super Smash Bros for Wii U & 3DS shows several unannounced new and returning characters on the game's roster.

The leak, which surfaced in several parts over the past week, was compiled on NeoGAF. Both screenshots and videos for the 3DS version have emerged, showing a much more populated character list than any Nintendo has yet to officially reveal.


New characters allegedly include Bowser Jr. riding a flying Clown Car, the dog from Duck Hunt, and Shulk from Xenoblade. The leak also indicated that Wario, Mr. Game & Watch, Ganondorf, Jigglypuff, R.O.B., Ness and Dr. Mario would return.

Five videos which were hit YouTube on Monday show Bowser Jr., Shulk and Ganondorf battling in the Battlefield and Yoshi's Island maps.

One leaker claimed that more characters, including Lucas, Star Wolf, Snake, Ice Climbers and Rhythm Heaven's Chorus Men, will be added to the game via post-launch DLC, though that claim is relatively unsubstantiated.

The 3DS edition of Super Smash Bros. is due to release in October, while the Wii U version is slated to arrive in the holiday season.

A special 3DS XL Smash Bros. bundle will also be available at launch, featuring a limited edition red handheld with a Smash Bros. graphic on it.
