Last year, Gematsu was tipped off prior to E3 about six new characters supposedly set to appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and for Nintendo 3DS.
They were: Mega Man, Villager (Animal Crossing), Wii Fit Trainer, Little Mac (Punch Out), Pac-Man, and Mii (Wii series).
So far, all but Pac-Man and Mii have been confirmed.
Today, we received a new e-mail from the same tipster, who claims Pac-Man and Mii are still on the way, and the following characters will also appear:
- Shulk (Xenoblade)
- Palutena (Kid Icarus)
- Chrom (Fire Emblem: Awakening)
- Chorus Men (Rhythm Heaven)
- Pokemon from Pokemon X and Y
Take it all with a grain of salt for now, but there’s a Super Smash Bros.-focused Nintendo Direct happening later today. If these claims are accurate, it’s likely we’ll hear about at least one of these new characters there.
I’ve e-mailed the tipster requesting a few more details, but have yet to hear back.
