Legendary Japanese publication CoroCoro has announced that it will reveal the full character roster for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game in the next issue it releases. This roster reveal is for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, but given that the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U will have the same roster, we’ll be getting a peek at the final fighters for both games a bit early. We’re including an additional jam-packed volume containing all of the characters and stages for the up and coming 3DS version of Smash Bros.!!! Keep your eyes peeled for when it goes on sale! Of course, this likely doesn’t include any hidden characters that Nintendo has in mind for the series, so keep that in mind for next month when this issue surfaces. Are you finally ready to see the final list of characters? Captain Falcon and two additional characters were announced yesterday. Who is left that we haven’t seen yet that you’d like in the game? Let us know in the comments. local_offer Nintendo Super Smash Bros wii u stars Further Reading Nintendo doesn't need 3rd parties, says Stardock CEO Earthlock backers will get Switch version if it ever happens Zelda: Breath of the Wild Deluxe guide for $48 on Amazon Nintendo shares up 20% since Switch launch What's your dumbest death in Breath of the Wild? Mario Kart 8 Switch vs Wii U comparison Ducked I wonder if anymore new characters will be added, or just returning. I’d still love to see Shulk (from Xenoblade) and Chrom (yes more Fire Emblem). BIG Franky Chrom isn’t happening…. Shulk is a solid “probably” though… Ducked You’re probably right about Chrom, still would love Nintendo to put him in Smash. Maybe as a DLC. Nookling Chrom was confirmed unplayable. He is in Robins final smash. James McPherson Wouldn’t DLC have to be on both since they share the same roster? I mean I would totally dig that idea to add more characters to the set roster to battle it out. TheGrizzledBoor Shulk (Xenoblade), Tetra (TLoZ: WW), King K. Rool (Donkey Kong) and Wonder Red (Wonderful 101) please Guest Sakurai said that Wonder Red will not be a character, just a trophy. Poojan Raval Wonder Red is just a trophy, Tetra is an assist trophy. Both confirmed by Sakurai. Shagrath1983 I main the heavy characters of Bowser and Dedede so I need one more big guy added to the list Razo_E Toad would be a great fighter. Not just a parry for Peach that works only 60% of the time. Merry_Blind Yeah it’s pretty surprising he hasn’t made it into the franchise yet. Who know, if games like Captain Toad: Treasure Trackers come out more often and are popular, he might make it into the next one! Kirbyomega I think bandana Dee is much more likely Jay Caulfield Oh hell yes! And I think it’s fairly likely as dedede’s side b throws gordos only rather than waddle dees and doos. Plus it would be easy to make a moveset for him. Pretty much a copy paste of his moves in return to dreamland. I would definitely main him. BIG Franky I can pretty much guarantee that the full roster wont be revealed next month…I don’t think they are outright lying… I just think the wording is flawed, I am sure what they mean is that they will detail the full roster that has been announced TO DATE… it would make zero sense to have roster revealed so long prior to release… CydeFxt Makes sense mojack411 Yeah, this doesn’t look quite right to me too. I don’t think we’ll ever get the true full roster before the game releases. The Clockwork Being I think it will be the starting roster. greengecko007 I hope that you’re right, but let’s not forget that Nintendo revealed the full driver roster for Mario Kart 8 a month before the game came out. Next month we will be 2 months away from the 3DS version releasing. kevin nun—- They probably wont. Hope they update the game’s graphics prior release though. Looks like Brawl in HD. Travion either way, who cares? the roster won’t be secret forever. Yousif Alromaithi I expect Shulk to get in. Withe expectations of Mewto or quite possibly Mew. I expect Ghirahim to make a cut with Ganon too. Aside from that Nintendo is listening to fans so Shulk should be in. AlexLuigi I believe this is a sign that we are going to have a Nintendo Direct showing Smash and other titles. RockieOllie We did get new famitsu scans! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gX1NkVo4miY CydeFxt I really do love the new reveals of characters, its exciting and builds the anticipation…….but i also REALLY wish that there would be at least 2 or 3 secret fighters. Either way I think i might lose hours upon hours of sleep on launch night/day. MARIO’SMOUSTACH WHERE IS JIGGGLYPUFF??!?!??!?!??!?!??! Little Seal PLEASE DON’T SAY THAT NAME AGAIN. Whom play as Jigglypuff?????????? Merry_Blind Everybody plays as her whenever they feel silly. Little Seal Waste a slot for fun? Or for being silly? Let’s just create a “FUN MODE” when you can choose Jigglypuff or Wario. Merry_Blind Yeah why not… After all, fun is… well fun is fun! Saul Rivera So you didn’t see how Jigglypuff pummled Fox at EVO 2014? Little Seal Did Jigglypuff win? Nope,ok,try again next Championship. Saul Rivera It’s not the fact if he won or not…the point is…people use it…and they use it quite well to ask “whom play as Jigglypuff?” Little Seal People use it…ok,that’s true,only my 5 yrs old cousin. And there’s another thing,Jigglypuff can be replaced by another new character,like Wonder Red,Mallow,Duck Hunt Dog (see SmashBoards if you want to be a pro). Seriously,Jigglypuff & Wario is just for madness via local. There’s no Jigglypuff spinoff to make it worth her(?) appearance again on SSB. But take it esay,probably Sakurai will put again for “real gamers” like you. Saul Rivera Funny how you’re making Smash sound so professional just because people use it for tournaments….it’s a multiplayer party game at it’s heart..so characters like those are always welcomed. Little Seal And about the EVO final,that guy just want attention playing with the worst character,if he won,the Fox “player” should put his head inside the ground ¬¬º Razo_E If you can land “rest” you can knock people out so easily. It’s hard, but the payoff is worth it. That said, I only play with her in Project M, not “regular” Brawl. Jay Caulfield Jigglypuff is one of the original 12. There is no chance of her being taken out of smash. Little Seal DAMMIT! Finally a real good argument against mine! Yes man,maybe Jigglypuff will be back because she(?) was in the first N64 SSB series. TheyCallHimBigAl I know there’s been rumors, but I’d love to see Ness confirmed. Robin’s moveset seems similar to Ness’ (long range energy based projectile) and that worries me that they’d drop him. Merry_Blind No chance in hell. Ness was in the original. He will come back, just like Captin Falcon and Jigglypuff. TheyCallHimBigAl I hope so. It took them long enough to announce Captain Falcon, and from what I can tell he’s a much more popular fighter than Ness. Merry_Blind Thing is, these characters should be a given! I don’t understand why people were afraid Captain Falcon would get cut out, same for Ness or Jiggly. They’re all-stars, they’re the veterans. It’s as if they would remove Kirby, or Pikachu. Could you imagine a Smash game without Kirby? 00EpicGamer00 You do realize Ness was almost removed from Brawl, right? Merry_Blind How come? Sakurai said that? 00EpicGamer00 Yeah. Sakurai originally planned for Ness to be removed in favor of Lucas but ended up putting them both in. Merry_Blind Yeah I did some research after I read your comment. Still, I doubt he can remove him at this point, and I don’t see why he would. He’s much more iconic than Lucas, and for the Smash franchise itself, it’s a staple in my book. I mean, those PIKAFIRE and homerun bat and that lighting hitting his own butt to send him flying are just waaayyyy too awesome and memorable to be removed from the game. 00EpicGamer00 Very true. I too don’t think Sakurai will remove him but, who knows? Sakurai almost did in Melee. He could possible actually do it for this game. But, we’ll just have to wait and see. Merry_Blind Indeed! LevenThumps Ness was almost removed from Melee, not Brawl. 00EpicGamer00 Are you sure? I thought it was Brawl where that occured. Oh wait…I just looked it up and you’re right. My bad. You mine if I fix that? TheSneakyLizard Come on Ice Climbers. Where the hell are you? Kirbyomega The polar bear is an enemy in smash run… TheSneakyLizard I know, but still, it baffles me as to why the IC’s have not been revealed yet. eli ness and jiggly haven’t been released yet…you must be surprised that many characters haven’t been released yet… TehEngineer There probably going to be hidden character this time round. Along with Mr Game & Watch, Jigglypuff and Ganondorf and Wario. (Somehow I think Ness will be announced before the game releases). WiiUisgaming Ness and Lucas will be back abe Doubt both, Sakai has been working really hard to limit clones disqus_sgtob6da3X Uh…Ness was never a clone to begin with and it seem like Lucina is very similar to Marth. abe Doubt BOTH as in Ness or lucas will be there but not thw two of them. never said Ness was a clone disqus_sgtob6da3X guess just wait and see. the_battery Actually, both Lucas and Ness have differences in the PSI powers they use. i don’t know who uses what, but they are different. abe Well technically Ness and Lucas use their “Party’s” powers apart from PK fire… I think. So they could have completely different powers between smash appearance majora :D Uhh… Lucina? abe “limit” not “removed entirely” majora :D Checkmate Saul Rivera For me Mr. Game & Watch…it’s the one character I used a lot on the Wii… Justin Carlson How about a Squid (Inkling) from Splatoon? I think that could bring some unique moves. abe Provided splatoon doesn’t tank hard I would be shocked of the squids didn’t appear in smash 5 URFTBOUND4LIFE . ”Provided splatoon doesn’t tank” Unintentional pun Vorpal Blade M body is ready! Ducked I’m guessing they will reveal Peter Griffin, Bugs Bunny, Regis Philbin, Elsa, Kim Kardashian, Crash Bandicoot, and The Smokey Bear. Squid You forgot shrek. Ducked I knew I was forgetting someone! TehEngineer And Shadow. And Goku. And some other form of Marth… 00EpicGamer00 And Isaac from Dead Space. eli you’re joking right? triplegamer3K . So…I’m curious to know just what there final smashes will be? Ducked Peter Griffin: Final Hump Bugs Bunny: Carrot RPG Regis Philbin: Kelly Slam Elsa: Marshmallow Kim Kardashian: Booty Smack Crash Bandicoot: Aku-Aku Invincibility Smokey Bear: Wildfire triplegamer3K . Smokey Bears makes no sense. 🙁 Logan Wayman Wario, Game and Watch and Meta Knight all the way. Kirbyomega Notice the stage in one of the captain falcon pictures Zanzama Looks like Halberd Stage which got revealed a long time ago. Of course it does somewhat support the return of Meta Knight. Maury game and watch most likely going to be a hidden character like the past two smash games the_battery Did you even watch the pac-man release? they un-official announced game and watch at the end. Nookling Right… Which is why he still wants Game and Watch to be confirmed… Henry Hotspur I remember some publication said the exact same thing for Brawl before it was being released. Turns out, they only showed all the characters that were already showcased. I can’t imagine this being any different. Nintendo is going to present new characters themselves, not this “CoroCoro” publication. The Clockwork Being But CoroCoro handles pretty much all the pokemon info so they could be a credible source. Nookling Corocoro released basically all new Pokemon information so I don’t see why they couldn’t release some for smash. I’m guessing one or two returning fighters would be it though. J_Joestar Welll they are claiming it will be the full roster (probably excluding hidden unlockables). so chances are Sakurai has pretty much given us all the “New” characters that aren’t hidden and most of the CoroCoro release’s “new” content will feature returnees with maybe 1 truly New character at most. TehEngineer I think it was the exact same publication… Nabecoat I’d like to see Isaac (Golden Sun), Mike Jones (Star Tropics), and a return of Ganondorf. Dark Link Have you been following my posts? 😛 Super Buu Does that mean Shulk still has a chance? URFTBOUND4LIFE . Am I the only one who want MetaKnight back? I know he was OP in Brawl but damn it, he’ s my favorite Kirby character eli I doubt that they won’t have him, and halberd was announced as a stage, so there is viable support to his release abe I think he’ll be back but will be heavily altered. This smash seems to be aiming for tournaments no tripping, reflected poses when characters turn, multiple “final destination” levels, no transformations and alterations to flight are all geared for tournaments David Horowitz Don’t do that! I want to have a LITTLE of the game to explore once I get it. They didn’t reveal nearly this much before Brawl came out, did they?! Kiki Fogg They’d revealed all of the starters, including newcomers, before Brawl came out in Japan, & I think all of the unlockable characters by the time it came out in America. anthony optimo Awe, I like surprises… Zorpix I haven’t listened to leaks before now, I don’t intend to start Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog HA Don’t Make Me Laugh Larry Howell I don’t know why…. but I read that is Shao Khan’s voice. Ninty The Rage Kid You’re not the only one. Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog and Dark Pit’s Arthur Jarret Brawl had Wolf, Toon link etc. unlocked and they weren’t announced on the Dojo… so I’m guessing we won’t know the full roster until reviewers with their early copies spoil it for us a week in advance MewThree28 I’d love it if Falco, Game-and-Watch, Ness, and Ganondorf were confirmed it’s probably more than likely they will be returning though NowhereStarr14 Game & Watch! Game & Watch! Game & Watch! great deku tree I know this will never happen but here’s some 3rd party characters that I’d love to be in SSB4: Ryu from Street Fighter and Lloyd Irving, Kratos and Sheena from Tales of Symphonia majora :D Sorry to burst your bubble, but Sakurai has explicitly specified there will not be any characters from fighting games on Smash. Sad, because Ryu is a no-brainer: Up B Shoryuken, Neutral B Hadouken, Side B Shakunetsu Hadouken, Down B Tatsumaki Senpukyaku great deku tree seriously?! when did he say this? oh that’s rubbish man they would have been great characters as well. yeah Ryu could have used his metsu hadouken for his final smash as well. majora :D http://nintendoeverything.com/why-sakurai-isnt-keen-on-adding-fighting-characters-to-smash-bros/ uPadWatcher One word– BAYONETTA! eli No, just…no… Dexrobo I don’t see anything wrong with Bayonetta, she’s interesting and now her game is a Wii U exclusive abe Not for this one, if her 3rd game is Nintendo exclusive as the devs want then I’m sure shell make some appearance in smash 5 Stephen Agreed. She needs to be in this game. It would be really weird if she isn’t playable… Ninty The Rage Kid There still might be hope… Squid I’m pretty sure they will leak either the last newcomers or the starting roster. Leandro Ariel Still waiting for Ganondorf… 🙁 eli I actually am not certain whether or not he’ll be in, as he’s pretty much a captain falcon clone that’s heavier and does more damage… majora :D They DID try to make him different from the Cap in Brawl… but yeah, it’s a heavy candidate to get the boot triplegamer3K . They gave him a sword.That he doesn’t use.But he thinks it looks cool.So why not? :3 0Xero0 not as badly as me, i would pay double for the game just to have ganondorf return! Bobby P. Didn’t they release the full roster for Brawl? I remember it being a real bummer to not be surprised by new challangers. James Miller I Shulk ! Nookling ICE CLIMBERS BAYBAYYYY TheSneakyLizard What!? Edit: Oh, never mind. Sorry, I though when ya said “BAYBAYYYY”, I thought it meant “bye-bye”. Again, sorry for the misunderstanding. But regardless, I eagerly await the reveal of the Ice Climbers. Nookling I want everyone back but Wolf, Snake, ROB, and Lucas. I think ROB will be back though and I want Ice climbers and Jigglypuff back the most! majora :D You want Ice Climbers back, but not Snake back?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9G0RJmm3KQ&feature=kp Nookling Snake did not look like he belonged in Brawl and the games aren’t coming to Nintendo platforms… majora :D True, but in gameplay terms he was a pretty interesting character 0Xero0 the only character made to be insanely tactical and strategistical Nookling True as well eli wouldn’t it be cool if the characters that nintendo announced were JUST the starters and there’s still lots of unlockables, very unlikely though XD 0Xero0 would give me hope for the return of ganondorf, yes it would lol Lewis J Neal http://youtu.be/cFLouV8dDTQ Hopefully it’s this guy All I do like ice climbers to come back 00EpicGamer00 I would LOVE Rayman to be playable. But I think it’s most likely a fake image. flclfool Nope, he’s a smash trophy though 😮 FastRDust I Would like to see Snake and Wario again!!! altough i’m probably the only one josephnorton Am I the only one who just wants to wait until I get the game to find out what the full roster is? Kmac I know who the last character is going to be, It’s the paddle in PING PONG i know it is!!!! Xavier James Hernandez Aguayo I really want Lip to join this Fight hope she does <3 Guest How I think the Roster might look Like 😀 Willie The Lucario Master I think Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton are getting in as theyve become very popular in the 3DS community James McPherson Sora no matter the chance to get in would be a pretty sick fighter! if not now then Smash 5 as 3rd party. 😀 Charizard why does it mater if we find out next month, because japan still gets the in early september.
