Yeah, take this with at least a grain of salt given that it’s a rumour related to Super Smash Bros 4, but apparently, a magazine given out at the World Hobby Fair (an event which is ending tomorrow and has is being held in Japan) indicates a new character is going to be revealed for the game.  Here’s a picture of the magazine in question: There’s apparently something there asking about a newcomer, one who isn’t listed on the page.  And given that Nintendo is apparently present at this event, the chances that they’ll show something off at it are pretty good.

Super Smash Bros 4 Roster Pictures Confirmed Fake

Nin3DSWii U1 comment


Not like this should be a surprise to absolutely anyone (Nintendo never lets sensitive information like the final Smash Bros roster out months before the game’s release date), but either way, the Smash Bros 4 roster pictures we showed a few days ago have been confirmed as fake by the person who released them.

Let’s start with the roster itself.  Here’s the full roster, as released by the hoaxer to back up his confession.  Notice anything different? Yep, Ridley is on this one.  Except as the most ugly, ridiculously fake model possible.  It was […]

Smash Bros Icon

When it comes to what characters and series should be represented in the Smash Bros series, there’s always been a bit of debate over the specifics.  Should third parties be limited to a certain number of slots to avoid overshadowing Nintendo ones?  Do characters from other consoles stand a chance?  Are real life people and characters from non video game media a step too far?  These questions and more always come up.  But do you know what I think? Smash Bros should be everything goes.  No rules, no restrictions on inclusion; just whatever gets people hyped up more.  Keep reading to find out more…

The Wonderful 101 was meant to have Nintendo Characters?

Nin3DSWii ULeave a comment


No, I’m not kidding.  Apparently, one of the original plans for The Wonderful 101 was that it’d be 100 Nintendo characters teaming up to go on an epic adventure and take down the forces of evil.  So the likes of Mario and Link would replace the likes of Wonder Red and Wonder Green.  Here’s Hideki Kamiya’s original comment about the game: Originally I got an order from the president of Platinum Games, Tatsuya Minami, asking me to create a game idea that had an all-star cast of Nintendo characters plus characters from other games and that’s how the project started. … When you try and incorporate many characters with high popularity, there are fans who like certain characters more than others.
