Earlier today we announced that several videos had surfaced showcasing leaked characters in action in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The leaked videos showed Bowser Jr. riding in Bowser’s Clown vehicle from Super Mario World, giving legitimacy to the rumors that surfaced early last week. Nintendo has filed a copyright claim on YouTube against these videos, taking them down. This leads us to believe that the rumors are in fact real, which would mean Nintendo definitely wants to keep the information from spreading. Either way, the videos are now down and the only thing we have left are the screenshots of the various leaks that are posted on imgur. This keeps getting more interesting as we go on. local_offer Nintendo Super Smash Bros wii u stars Further Reading Legendary Pokemon coming to Pokemon Go The cost of Nintendo consoles in today's dollars Wii U gets firmware update Watch the Smash 4 EVO Finals on Disney XD Take a peek at this week’s Nintendo Dow 9 things you probably didn't know about Super Mario Bros. crocodileman94 Shulk and Bowser Jr. confirmed? Buizy Strudel This is getting more intresting every secend. im waiting to see what nintendo does now. Jason Sucks that Issac from Golden Sun isn’t in the game. crocodileman94 Who said he’s not? Brandt Mackay Who says he will? Dexrobo Damn, so it probably was legit. Guhtere I hope this isn’t true. The last thing I want is even more Mario characters. Dying_in_this_Crap_World We all know this game has been completed for the past year, and Nintendo is just holding it off to space their game releases. Doctors Tardis As desperately as they’ve needed games, I doubt that very VERY much. Andrew Gonzalez Well the main game is probably complete but I’m sure it’s just debugging here on out. B_Joshua_B That isn’t true. After all it was recently announced that they finally managed to finish Samus’ outfits. That means they are nearly or just now reaching finishing point. Ducked Good for Nintendo. What a way to ruin a big character reveal for Shulk. I hate it when stuff like this gets leaked. Daniel Carvalho Agreed! The developers take all the care in the world to present something big in a fashion that’ll surprise someone, and then some random guy (probably related to a post-development part, like Beta testing or Marketing) ruins it all by leaking those images… Mercurio2054 in this case they tried to keep us updated every day. Daniel Carvalho He made sure he managed the daily info to be as less revealing and not have much impact as possible, saving that for the big announcements, like character reveals and different gameplay modes. He carefully crafted the hype for every new Reveal, specially those on Nintendo Directs! Brandt Mackay Because all leaks and rumors are always to be believed, right? Your own fault for watching a video with the word “leak” on it. chiguimania Dude, the leak is true. That’s not arguable. 7 videos and 20 different photos. Milky Bacons Woot! You go Ducked! Razo_E This is exactly why Sakura took out the cut-scenes in the single player mode.. tsk tsk tsk. Rinslowe True. Saleh Sbeiti Why would you read it if you don’t want it to be spoiled? Jeffery02 Because we didn’t know what this “leak” was about and we always want to debate the legitimacy of these sources. I understand your point but it’s not like we knew we wouldn’t like this particular surprise to be ruined. Saleh Sbeiti Dude what would a leak in Smash be if not the characters? The only time that happened was with cutscenes, and that was one time. Jeffery02 For example, I have been waiting for Ness and Jigglypuff to be confirmed. If it was them, then I’d be happy with the leaks. Now that it was a surprise character, I feel sad that it’s been spoiled. It’s so easy to know your mistake after the fact, but not so much beforehand. I am not saying that you’re wrong. I am only saying that you cannot fault someone for stumbling into information that they didn’t know they weren’t ready for yet. aldo2410 Sakurai really hates when somebody else do his job Milky Bacons xD MonadoKnight Well done nintendo you just confirmed the leaks… Sdudyoy Luckily I didn’t watch these, so the characters are still a surprise for me. Colin Malone If you want them to still be a surprise, why did you click on the link to comment? The leaked characters are being openly discussed in the comments and, while we didn’t spoil them in the article titles, there may have been pictures you could have inadvertently seen. It seems like you’re taking unnecessary risks is all. DragonSilths I still say they are fake, it could have been as simple as Ganondorf being the only legit part of that and Nintendo would take it down. IF by some chance these are real then Sakurai lost his damn mind, and he and Nintendo should refuse to sell the 3DS version of Smash Bros now. Just to be like you don’t spoil shit or we punish your asses. Then Sakurai should warn that if Smash Bros Wii U gets leaked before launch then not only will it never be released either but that there will NEVER BE A SMASH BROS GAME AGAIN. And then he retires. matthew garcia I mean it shouldn’t really matter I’m sure the game is gonna be fun. Even if the leak is true I know nothing about how each character plays so it should still be something new classicgamer20 I don’t believe them either. I mean there is no way Sakurai would put in clone characters again let alone make Dark Pit his own character. Nighcrom Dude… I agree that Sakurai didn’t deserve to have to this happen, and whoever leaked this is an ass, but punishing the entire fanbase for something one person did that the rest of us had no control over would definitely be pushing it. Nintendo would also be shooting themselves in the foot if they axed this game. Years of development down the drain, and all those potential Wii U sales lost. DragonSilths So? Nintendo hasn’t shot themselves in the foot multiple times before? It would be no surprise. As for the potential Wii U sales, lol, even Smash Bros isnt going to do much for sales, it will boost Wii U sales as much as any new Nintendo Wii U game will, the Wii U is past the point in saving, so it really doesn’t matter at this point. Captain Toad > Smash Bros anyway. Lusunup This has been pissing me off especially smash community I get why they took down the videos. But just because it was a Video people automatically assume it’s real…-_- Fuzzylittlebastard Here us what I think: Video is fake, pictures are real. Unless some of the pictures confirm the video is real? Idk. I have not seen any of them. Marioman21 The pictures would confirm the video is real. They are about the same stuff. Fuzzylittlebastard As I said, havent watched or looked at them too much, want some stuff to be a surprise, right? Andrew Gonzalez Well seeing how nintendo have invested a sh*t load of money into this new smash this news doesn’t come as a surprise. Stuff like this would probably kill some hype. I hate leaks but it’s hard not to look though. Fuzzylittlebastard Here is an idea: Nintendo should make Dark Pit an assist trophy for POTD, then automatically debunking the image and/or pictures. If its real of course. Thomas Vienna Dark Pit was already in Brawl as a costume, why would he be demoted to assist trophy? Fuzzylittlebastard The image “confirms” him as a character. If he was an assist trophy, it would debunk the leak. Thomas Vienna Yeah, but then we wouldn’t get to play as him. In my opinion, this leak stuff is more exciting than a silly reveal video. Fuzzylittlebastard Im just thinking of ways to debunk the “leak”. I have no interest in kid Icarus and Frankly I think he would be a clone. Thomas Vienna Well, if this is real, then I don’t think that debunking the leak will have all that much effect when they finally reveal it anyway. It’s still in everyone’s heads, and no longer fresh. Jeffery02 I think he may just be a Pit costume. Kind of like Link and Dark Link or Original Wario and Warioware Wario. Henry Hotspur For those who missed the videos but are interested, you can also scurry around /v/ for the videos. There’s webMs and GIFs in various threads, and it’s going to be like that for a few days. Zorpix I guarantee the videos have been downloaded/cached multiple times. Once it’s out there, it’s out there CEObrainz I have two copies 😉 jjbredesen I have been gone for a long time, so missed all of these “leaks” could you send me a link? CEObrainz http://www.filedropper.com/ssb pacheco90 thanks ! jjbredesen Thanks 😀 CEObrainz No prob. Marioman21 They are good. Zorpix That’s the spirit Marioman21 Boy that the truth. And that kids is why you never upload anything you might regret later to the internet. Superxtreme Ok, so does this confirm that the leaks are legit? Fuzzylittlebastard Maybe, this COULD be an attempt to get rid of the hype. Thomas Vienna It confirms it for me. I wouldn’t expect Nintendo to take it down so quickly if the footage was not just sent out by them. Thomas Vienna Who else literally dropped their jaw when they saw this headline? Fuzzylittlebastard Im not surprised. Thomas Vienna I’m not surprised that Nintendo would claim the rights to the video and have it taken down. It’s just a very shocking way to see this stuff confirmed. Milky Bacons Me. Ian Settlemyer So the leaks are fake, right? paulthevgking ha,ha, NOPE Brandt Mackay BS DragonSilths We don’t know yet. TheBrainJemin Well now the only thing to bring hype now is a trailer that shows Ridley as a playable. Saul Rivera Knowing them…maybe they’ll just cut these characters to make us think it was fake..and thus thanks to leaks on the internet…we get shafted! perpetualentropy i missed em but yay bowser jr and the koopa kids yayayayayayay im so happy and duck hunt dog is gonna be the shit up attack will be like olimar projectle will either be the zapper or a duck flying at you or a clay disk that you shoot but smash attack and other moves yaayayyyh Squid Goddamn it these leakers piss me off. It’s hard to avoid spoilers when their suddenly thrown right in you’re face. I swear if this game gets delayed in order to keep surprises I’m gonna lose my shit. I think this leak is likely real unfortunately. But it’s possible they did this in order to get rid of the crap the media is gonna go all over, Brandt Mackay You’re own damned fault for watching them. Squid Nope. I purely logged into Reddit and to see “Duck Hunt Dog, Dark Pit, Shulk, and Bowser Jr. Confirmed for smash by a leak” with a picture of the duck hunt dog from the leak. Brandt Mackay I still think it’s asinine. The game needs more Star Fox characters, but nooooooo, they won’t do it. Too many Fire Emblem characters. SolarShane13 Then it’s your fault for going to a forum that’s known to discuss leaks AND spoilers. Brandt Mackay To those bitching about the leaks “ruining” the game. You saw the word “leak” you knew it was a rumor, and yet you’re all butthurt about it? Grow a pair. Squid i.imgur.com/zaMY47l.png EDIT: I hope you people know I didn’t make that post, it’s a photo of someone else’s post. I just agree so much I decided to repost. Fuzzylittlebastard Agreed 110%. Zach Cruz When you get older you find out working on your birthday becomes normal… well at least for me working for a fulltime job. Squid That’s not the thing. It’s just emphasis on how he disposes all the chances for his breaks, such as his injury to work on a game me He had a choice. WOuld u choose to work on your birthday if you had a choice? Think not. It just shows how much he loves this series. Jon I don’t know anyone that takes their birthday off from work. Maybe some high school kids but not adults in the real world. Prizm Lots of people around me take their birthday off work. I do whenever possible. If not that day, then the closest convenient day (or two). Jon Most people don’t waste their vacation time on one day unless it would be one of those special ones such as your 50th. Those that do are in the minority. Maybe if your job is shift work, you’d book it off but other than that, no one on salary (which is most people) would waste their vacation time on a single day that is really, just another day. Zach Cruz exactly^. I would much rather use my vacation time on a longer vacation at the end of the year to stack it with our holiday vacation we already get. Zach Cruz I also have a choice and I choose to work because people like him depend on me to get my work done… I could take my birthday off easy though if I wanted to. Milky Bacons I couldn’t say it better myself. Andrew St. Clair Nope. Don’t feel bad for Sakurai at all. I don’t see any reason too. RayMarioSonic Why? I honestly want to hear as to why you think this. Divaitiie! He’s a fucking troll. And even tho i agreed with who-ever posted. I personally think it’s a little bit over the top. The comment feel like some pro-PETA getting pissed off at the Pokemon games just because he/she is too sensitive -__- imho …. 00EpicGamer00 I think he’s a “troll.” Even if he doesn’t like this new Smash Bros. he should at last have sympathy for the people working on the game! Especially Sakurai! He’s had so many health problems from being so stressed out over making this game. And now all of his hard work is basically being thrown at the window. I’ll be surprised if Sakurai agrees to help make the next Smash Bros. Nintendo will probably have to find someone else, and who knows how that’ll turn out. Also I don’t think this guy is very credible (as a gamer). He doesn’t like this new Smash Bros., for instance. Practically ever gamer likes SB whether it be a little or a lot. Also I’ve had a conversation with him before, and he’s told me that…..he hates……The Last of Us! How is that even possible!? D: Sdudyoy Don’t worry Sakurai, I didn’t watch the leaks, I really do feel bad for him though, I don’t see why people leak games, it ruins so much for the developers. Squid I mean I can’t really blame someone for leaking a game. It’s like keeping a really exciting secret. I accept the leak entirely now. But I can’t help but feel bad. It’s like your friend telling you their gonna propose to a girl and you tell the girl in advance. Matthew Stapleton I didn’t even know there was a leak, till just now. matthew garcia Is that a man or woman I can’t tell Nintendo Of North Korea Sakurai is a dude. Divaitiie! Oh so Nintendo is a korean company o_O ??? Never know dat before, I always thought it’s an American company. If that’s true, I think we just get fucked by Kim-jong-ul guys TT__TT …. Squid I hope you know Nintendo was never American to begin with. Divaitiie! Yeah I know, it’s korean. 00EpicGamer00 Umm, Nintendo’s not a Korean company. They’re a Japanese company. Thomas Vienna But it WAS a surprise! I don’t feel bad having watched the leaks, because it was just as exciting for me to see it like this. It was different when the subspace emissary was leaked, that was the entire story, and really it was the whole point of playing that mode. This is just a few character reveals, and it’s cool to see a little preview of them. JoJo_718 To be honest I got a bit disappointed on how he threats Ganondorf as just a clone of Captain Falcon, when the character is the main villain of an iconic saga, but his newest Kid Icarus characters receive complete overhauls like Pit or a very interesting moveset like Palutena, heck Metroid only has two characters, when a third one could be very viable or how many stages are just recycled from Melee and Brawl, I don’t discredit him, but he’s seriously biased towards his newest stuff. Squid Well the rumor has it that Sakurai’s main is actually ganondorf. Superxtreme There is always that one guy who ruins it for everyone. Divaitiie! I agree with whoever posted this … but that’s a little bit over dramatic don’t you think ? Squid No, over dramatic is if the post said “send hate that the leaker can potentially see so he is ashamed of himself” or “Send nintendo many emails to give praise to Sakurai” Divaitiie! I personally think it’s kinda over the top. I agree with the guy tho. Potemkin I’m working today…and it is my b-day, so not a big thing. Also, in this day and age, it is normal for games to be leaked. It’s surprising that Nintendo has managed to keep things so secretly for the last couple of years, but they need to be prepared that this will not be the first time it happens. InterTriplete Very true!!! Reggie Richards life will go on people. it’s not the end of the world. it still going to be a great game. think of it like this people, weather this was leak or not were you going to get any money from this? if not then don’t give rats a about it in just play the game. Milky Bacons *sigh* Why? WHY? WHY do people think that “leaking” stuff will be *insert word here*. It’ll just spoil everything for us. Now if we did have Bowser Jr, Shulk, or Duck Hunt Dog, we won’t. I’m glad about Dr. Mario and Dark Pit not being in anymore, and honestly, I wouldn’t mind if Sakurai completely changed his character arsenal because of these leaks. F***ing leakes. Milky Bacons Oh boy. I feel so bad for Sakurai. mateorush90 Stop the leeeaaakksss pleeeaasssseee Marioman21 You know this already looked really real. The amount of effort it would have taken to fake it already made it unlikely that it was fake, but know that Nintendo is going into full cover up mode unlike with any of the other leaks I think that these are definitely real. Excited for Shulk! Andrew St. Clair Now that I’ve seen Bowser Jr. in the game. I won’t buy the game anymore. The selling point of the Smash Brothers series, for me anyway, has always been not knowing anything about anything in it. I was surprised when Mario was announced in both Melee and Brawl. I was so surprised to see him return in this one. These surprises are what has kept me invested in the Smash Brothers series. How can I buy the game now? When they’ve completely spoiled me by showing a video with Bowser Jr. in it? I can’t like this game anymore, and there’s no reason to buy it now. That’s what leaks down. They keep people from wanting to buy the game. I imagine Nintendo lost about 930349858493945023% of their sales due to these leaks. Marioman21 Such Trolling Much Sarcasm. Jaden Why did you look at the video then? You werent forced to watch it. Jackson five You could still play the game because it’ll be good fun. I too like the element of surprise when it comes to unlockables, but it won’t ruin the whole experience. There’s still tons of gameplay to enjoy and I’m sure some other surprises await us too. Leonel It’s because of these leaks that nintendo has to do thinks over and over. Just like last year when the sub space was revealed they had decided to remove it from the game because of thse issues Scott It wasn’t removed from the game, it was never made, period. Sakurai said that it was because people put the Subspace Emissary cutscenes online and it “spoiled” the experience, but the real reason is that he couldn’t be assed to make an adventure mode when Brawl’s was only semi-popular. HavokPants nintendo take out the charachters to teach a lesson to some punk ass leakers Scott Great plan. Throw a bitch fit and take out characters they spent time and money to put into the game because people know it exists two weeks before they should have. Very professional. DragonSilths Fuck professionalism, Nintendo has the money to suffer millions upon millions of dollars of loss year after year and be perfectly fine. Cry_Zero Yeah punish the leakers and everyone who didnt even know that something got leaked…….. Zach Cruz Ridiculous to how many people want Nintendo to punish us players looking forward to this game and remove whats been leaked… I liked what I saw I am still exciting to have them “officially announced” with a character reveal. At the end of the day when the game comes out the content will all be the same with or without the leaks a great game will be made… SolarShane13 This just adds fuel to the fire. Nintendo always, always, ALWAYS, pulls the usual “we don’t comment on rumors” line. Now I’m inclined to believe these leaks. Thanks alot, Nintendo! FutureFox Hold up. You’re actually blaming Nintendo for someone else’s decision to leak private information? witwc2? SolarShane13 Where the fuck did I say that? I’m not blaming ANYONE. If you had read my post, I actually said that when “leaks” happen, Nintendo ALWAYS says “we don’t comment on rumors”. Nintendo has just added fuel to the truth fire by taking these down. FutureFox “Now I’m inclined to believe these leaks.” “Nintendo has just added fuel to the truth fire by taking these down” You are blaming Nintendo for making you have inclination to believe in the leaks. When really you should be upset about leak itself. Besides who know. Maybe some if not all those characters weren’t even in the game and Nintendo doesn’t want to get anticipations up for characters that won’t make the cut. Its a possibility. SolarShane13 I should be upset about leaks? Not everyone has to be like you! I for one enjoy “leaks”. Your second argument is downright stupid. Does Apple go after “leaks”? No. Google? No. Microsoft? No. Sony? No. Every other company? No. The main reason they don’t is because that action would draw too much media attention to the leaks and would lead people to believe that they were real. (Why take down a fake?) Nintendo also didn’t go after the numerous accurate “leaks” of Project Cafe. rp17 One thing you missed… When asked about claiming copyright infringement, Nintendo had this to say: “We have nothing to announce at this time. For the list of announced playable characters for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS please visit: http://www.smashbros.com.” Milky Bacons I’m really mad. Not so much as surprised, I mean, this is the internet after all, and this $#!7 will happen, but someone had the balls to leak this stuff and completely disgrace the hard work of Sakurai and his team! Real or not, this leak made Sakurai mad (to say the least). I like to think of it like this: The leaker wants it to be a real and convincing as possible, so he want’s it as perfect as possible (if he’s an amateur leaker, a real good one will have just enough graphical errors to make it look minor glitches). So far, only three things I have herd of are significant enough to be mentioned; Xenoblade’s rep using the up attack and it looks reminicent of an existing move, Wario’s pupil is creepy, and the Random Stage is “bleeding” into the bottom of the screen. Think of what you will, but I believe that these are the mistakes of perfection; meaning the leaker tried to hard and made mistakes he/she forgot to fix. That being said, I think it’s fake. One thing is for sure: If it was important enough to be taken down (dat copyright dough, ami’ aright? XD), then someone at Nintendo is gettg fired. Sakurai’s going to get his kung-fu on dat @$$. McEhret Fake or not Nintendo has copyright authority on the characters used, so they can have it taken down either way MewThree28 Man, I fucking hate how everything is leaked nowadays… sure, I’ll get replies with “then why did you click the article link” well, how about when i go on youtube? and i see LeakXplain’s videos in my subscription feed? Well, that’s not the important issue, This is not fair to Sakurai at all and he should NOT have anyone ruin his hype, now I hope to god that Sakurai delays the 3ds version (both if necessary) and replaces all of these leaked characters just to piss everyone off. and I barely comment here, so this must be a HUGE issue lol 🙂 Scott I’m not gonna say that cliched stuff, but the internet is all about information. If there’s information you don’t want to know, there’s nothing you can do short of detaching yourself from the worldwide web. People are going to want to know what they’re getting before they pay money for it, so people get info whether it be official information or leaked information. And leaks aren’t necessarily true, you don’t have to believe it. A game like Smash Bros. has had literally hundreds of fake leaks, only one of them has been confirmed so far (which was the Palutena leak months ago). J_Joestar a lot of times you don’t even need to click the articles/videos as the leaks are present in titles as well. lonewolf88 since I haven’t seen the leaks i wont watch them I’ll wait for sakura to release them himself 🙂 Jaden Good. A lot people are whinning over the game being spoiled for them, even though they chose to watch the videos in the first place. Arale Norimaki Sakurai is about to bust a cap in a leakers….you know what Epicstuf You fuck with my game. I will KEEL YOU! MetroidZero Well if they were fake leaks, Nintendo wouldn’t have used the Copyright card. DragonSilths Could have simply have been Ness, Jiggly, and Ganondorf that triggered that. Guest Guys. they got him: !http://i3.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/000/818/124/03f.png_large! klenko noooooooooooo if this is true, then lucas is being cut :(, that’s really sad I loved Lucas so much!!! DragonSilths The “Leaker” claims he is DLC, though he also said he lied about DLC…Either Lucas wasnt needed anyway. klenko Was needed for me, he was my main in brawl 🙁 DragonSilths I wouldn’t be mad at all if Sakurai got so mad to cancel Smash Bros 3DS lol. In fact I would be like good, punish everyone to send an example. Or in a Nintendo Direct we should witness Sakurai and Iwata cutting the guys head off with a katana then they say please understand, this is what happens when you leak shit…then the screen fades to black. DragonSilths I hope Sakurai doesn’t do a Pic Of The Day anymore, and just says you know what, I retire. Epicstuf Meh. PlayboyPacquiao I still do not believe the leaks are real.. -Manny Belink Need Sceptile or Krystal DDDDD: Mathew Vogt Still is not going to save your pathetic console Epicstuf Shut up, ok? Do you KNOW how popular this game is? If you just came here to troll, then get the fuck out. Also, you are such a PS4 fanboy. You are trolling sites that PS4 is the best! Oh, shove it. abe By are people being pissy about Dr Mario and Dark Pit being clones but chanting for Lucas to return. Don’t get me wrong they should be costumes but its the double standards that’s annoying me. Frankley seeing as the earth bound characters use their “Squad’s” attacks and attacks can be modded Lucas, ness and poo should all be 1 character. Am annoyed that Gannondorf seems the same but I’ve meant people who claim won’t buy smash if they “mess” with gannondorf moves Divaitiie! video games leakers are just like some dumb ass TV Show spoilers -__- … GregoryTheRainMaker Duck Hunt Dog confirm him plz! Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog Okay The BIGGEST Reason that the Leak is Real is that the Gameplay Video is Removed by Nintendo himself. So If you think the Leak is Fake Why Nintendo will React on it? Shootdatrupee!… Apparently, the guy who leaked the stuff was from NOA and has been fired and is now being sued. This IS a rumor, tho one being reported by more than one site. http://www.gamnesia.com/news/rumor-smash-bros.-leak-came-from-nintendo-of-america-employee Kirbyomega While I’m excited for new smash bros information, leaks are the reason we don’t have a subspace this time around and I’d much rather have no leaks and cool surprises then leaks with things removed in the next game TheSkeletonMan939 . Not exactly. The reason Nintendo gave as to why there’s no Subspace this time is that the cutscenes were put up on YouTube AFTER the game was released, which is just confusing to me. Not a leak necessarily. J_Joestar though seeing how this happened this time around, i’m sure Sakurai feels justified in his choice to exclude the mode. MewtwoWillBeBack Oh snap. Poor Sakurai… SUE THIS FREAKIN’ GUY WHO MAKED THIS LEAK!!! Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog New Lesson: Never Ever Share a Fighting Games Copy to Someone Before The Release. Mr. Sakurai If you Hear This, I’m Sorry For What’s Happened. For Now on: I’m Shut My Mounth About The Leak or Anything Else What Isn’t Be Revealed Besides You. MewtwoWillBeBack Okeydokey. (Nah leaks sucks.) FutureFox Old Lesson: Don’t break NDAs. Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog What are NDA’s? Epicstuf NDA’s are these rules that an employee must sign to not leak secret information. FutureFox NDA = Non-Disclosure Agreement. Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog ok Joe Martez Sadly this is the gaming world we live in, with advanced technology and stuff, leaks are becoming more common and common, sad but true Des I understand that Nintendo wants to hand out these little nuggets of information little by little and on their own schedule. I get that it’s their attempt to create buzz around the game and keep the anticipation and momentum going. I get that. But at the end of the day, I don’t think these leaks really matter. At least where it counts…. potential sales. I mean, had they released the entire roster of fighters for the game back during their E3 treehouse presentation, I’d still be buying it. So no big deal really. LunarNinja In retrospect… We would get the full roster in 3 weeks with the Japanese 3DS version releasing on the 13th and all. This is just a dissappointment that the rouster has been leaked this much… FutureFox The leaker’s name will become public knowledge soon enough in a court of law. Such a waste for this guy when the game is set to release in Japan in a matter of days. Reggie Richards i don’t feel sorry for Nintendo at all. it is what it is. i still going to be playing it for the Wii u! and have lot’s of fun playing in HD! Reggie Richards I dont feel sorry for nintendo. it is what it is. i sttill going to be playing it on me wii u . Guest You needn’t repeat it twice Shootdatrupee!… That’s like saying: ‘I don’t feel sorry for the families who lost members in terrorist attacks. It is what it is.’ Reggie Richards WTF does me not feeling sorry for a multibillion dollar company gaming secret getting leak on to YouTube have to do with people dying in real life, either you are a troll? or you just isn’t smart at all? Shootdatrupee!… Oh of course start with personal stabs and accusations. Very kind of you. Don’t take it so seriously…I was just pointing out how casual and matter-of-factly your comment is… Example… In Last Week’s Tonight, John Oliver notes how there’s a income gap between genders, how on average women are paid ~90cents for every dollar men are paid, and how the difference is ‘negligible’, to which John replies: ‘That’s like somebody taking a dump on my desk – the size of the dump does not matter, I can’t say ‘oh it’s only an inch wide, that’s almost the same as you having not taken a dump at all!’ Pay gaps and dumps are unrelated, think of it as more of a sort of analogy. Don’t be so sensitive…I mean no offence.
