Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

A series of supposed Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS videos have leaked following a rumor revealing the game’s remaining roster.

The initial rumor, which surfaced last week and is said to stem from a video shown to the ESRB, claimed the following characters are still to be announced:


  • Dr. Mario
  • Falco
  • Ganondorf
  • Jigglypuff
  • Mr. Game and Watch
  • Ness
  • R.O.B.
  • Wario


  • Bowser Jr.
  • Dark Pit
  • Duck Hunt Dog
  • Shulk

The rumor was supported by supposed off-screen images of the game, showing both menus and gameplay with new character renders that can’t be found anywhere online. The same leaker allegedly also claimed Lucas, Wolf, Chorus Men, Ice Climbers, and Solid Snake are planned as downloadable content.

While the validity of the rumor is still to be determined, today’s videos certainly support it. Even so, the next character reveal should confirm or deny the purported leak.
