    ...The Duck Hunt dog? That's simultaneously creepy, weird, infuriating, and awesome all at the same time XD. He's even more unexpected to me than Pac-Man was.

    It's important to note though that it's also "rumored" that some unconfirmed past characters are returning: Ness, Ganondorf, Mr. Game and Watch, Jigglypuff, Wario, Falco, Dr. Mario, and R.O.B. Even I didn't think R.O.B. would come back. Really happy Ness, G&W, Ganon, Puff, and Dr. Mario are back though! Also I would say that from the tile placement there are probably still some more that are yet to be seen. I'm sad Icies are gone, but I get why, and I think Rosalina and Luma is basically going to become the new Icies in terms of playstyle.

    i miss you pichu! if they adding the troll dog i hope they give him a recoil mechanic then.

    Thanks Doc Bowser Jr's literally the Tron Bonne of Smash Bros, his Koopa Klown Car does all the fighting, his alts are even said to be all the koopalings.
  • shawksta - August 26, 2014 9:55 a.m.

    My thoughts exactly, im really hyped now after seeing that in a technical level, the Koopa Klown Car is the playable character and you can possibly switch between Jr and Koopalings.

    kinda disappointing too as I would rather see him using his paint brush as a sword instead

    Are you seriously going to accept that fake screenshot. It's been out for a week now, and has had so many people find ways to debunk it. If by any chance that it is real, then it can't be complete, because the character placement makes no sense.
  • shawksta - August 26, 2014 9:54 a.m.

    There has been more proof of its legitmacy, actual gameplay footage shows both Shulk and Bowser Jr. and a plethora of screenshots were shown of trophies and other small things. Its very believable, but at the same time, All Star Mode was locked, meaning there is still more characters.
  • J-Fid - August 26, 2014 3:46 p.m.

    Is there a link you can show me that has these screenshots?
  • shawksta - August 26, 2014 4:49 p.m.

    Here's the imgur for the images, mostly trophies and smash run youtube deleted the leaked videos of Bowser Jr and Shulk but it is compiled here:
  • J-Fid - August 26, 2014 6:58 p.m.

    Ok, so maybe these are believable... It seems like a wait and see. That being said, I don't like the way Bowser Jr. jumps (Why does the car have to flip? Where in canon has that ever happened?), and it looks like Ganondorf's moveset is unchanged, which is a bummer. And no one is talking about SSBB Yoshi's Island coming back. That's the biggest deal of all, a neutral stage to play on!
  • shawksta - August 26, 2014 7:59 p.m.

    Technically in Super Mario world where Bowser flips the Clown Car upside down to drop balls on you. and all of Jr's animations after defeating him in NSMB, he flips around. Most people are focused on characters and other stuff to notice there's neutral stages. Its so bizarre, when you hear that Bowser Jr is gonna be in the game, you would expect Bowser jr being the Toon Link of Bowser with a paintbrush, instead its him riding on the Koopa Klown Car that's doing most of the fighting, and this is besides the possibility of Duck Hunt Dog being real, this is so weird in a satisfying way, and its not confirmed fully yet, but its possible that Jr will have alts of all the Koopalings, but everything's too early and there's barely anymore leaks given they have stopped. We are gonna have to wait till release.

    My next question is that, supposedly, the Ice Climbers are not playable due to technical limitations (again, where is the source for this). In the Duck Hunt Dog picture, it shows him with a duck. I don't understand how that, along with Rosalina and Luma are able to be in the game, but not the IC's. Also, I don't know the specifics, but you would think the 3DS is at least as powerful as the Gamecube, which had no problem with four IC's. For the record, I absolutely would love the Duck Hunt Dog to be playable. He's super cool in my book.
  • shawksta - August 27, 2014 7:55 p.m.

    The source for Ice Climbers was in an interview with IGN and Sakurai at 2013 The IGN interviewer said something extremely silly, when Sakurai asked him what characters he would like to see, he said "The Koopalings together as 1 character, where all 7 of them are fighting" Because he brought that up, Sakurai mentioned how that the game might have technical disadvantages with double characters like the Ice Climbers to program 2 complicated AI's. He didnt say that because of the Technical limitations Ice Climbers wont be in, he says that they are trying to go around this problem. I agree with Rosalina and Luma being even more complicated than Ice Climbers given its 2 separate movesets, but really who knows. The Technical limitations probably isnt because of the hardware being weak, but most likely because Sakurai wants to push the game to be 60 FPS at all times including in 3D, so double AI characters like Ice Climbers would bring a problem if say all 4 players were Ice Climbers. Again, who knows, we still dont know the full %100 roster, and if anything, maybe the Ice Climbers will be held off for DLC till they can fully fix the limitation problem.

    Maybe Ganondorf has new properties, this isnt really focused footage. Personally i wouldve perferred Hyrule Warriors Ganondorf or just a better Falcondorf, so many swordsman that having Ganondorf get new moves with his sword would just feel off, i personally got a fondness of Falcondorf given it more or less fits with his character.
  • J-Fid - August 26, 2014 9 p.m.

    A mix of Falcondorf and some sword moves. Kinda like Robin with his sword?
  • shawksta - August 27, 2014 7:50 p.m.

    Yeah that would be neat.
  • Frieza - August 26, 2014 6:26 a.m.

    RIP in peace Ice Climbers
  • sebastian-pickett - August 17, 2014 2:06 p.m.

    Did a twelve year old write this article? Link doesn't wield a "sword of time" and to not even run a spell check is unprofessional as hell..
  • Aeryn061 - August 22, 2014 3:36 a.m.

    What's even worse are the character suggestions. I'm fully ok if Mewtwo comes back, but Mewthree isn't the star of a new movie and it doesn't even exist. Chrom and Midna have already been confirmed to not be playable characters SEVERAL MONTHS AGO! As well as a Xenoblade sequel for Wii U! Some of the other ones just feel insulting.
