Early copies of Smash Bros. in Japan reveal several new characters [SPOILERS]


Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS releases in two days in Japan, but a few people have gotten their hands on early copies and have been streaming it on sites like Twitch and NicoNico. Because of this, we’ve seen several characters in the roster that haven’t officially been revealed by Sakurai. If you’d like to be surprised by these reveals, you should probably stop reading now.

The new characters seem to confirm the leaks from a couple of weeks ago, as the Duck Hunt Dog is indeed a character that is in the game now. Here’s the full list of new characters that we’ve seen.

  • Ness
  • Falco
  • Dark/Black Pit
  • Duck Hunt Dog
  • Game and Watch
  • Ganondorf
  • Dr Mario
  • Wario

While these characters will be fully revealed for anyone who watches Smash streams, we’ll probably see more official unveils from Sakurai with trailers as promotion for the game will be done right up until the holidays here in America. Are you excited about these new confirmed characters? Are you disappointed that the Ice Climbers are seemingly cut? Let us know in the comments.
