Breaking: Smash Bros. Leak shows Krystal Trophy, New Playable Characters
Krystal's Trophy appears!
Now, this COULD be a hoax, but it's the most accurate, complete hoax I've ever seen. This is probably a real leak. You can find the other interesting bits of info below.
New characters revealed:
- Bowser Jr.
- Mr. Game & Watch
- Ducks and Dog (Duck Hunt)
- ROB the Robot
- Dr. Mario
- Shulk (Xenoblade Chronicles)
- Dark Pit
Worried about Krystal not appearing in the game, don't worry just yet! It's clear from the roster images that there is more than enough space for more characters. Actually, it's better than that. The layout of the roster looks like it's MISSING some slots by the way they are arranged (at the bottom). Then there's the fact that the leaker claims there will be DLC characters including (for now):
- Chorus Men
- Ice Climbers
The Master Hand appears in a timed battle, as in all the other games in the series.
All the videos have been taken down already, but the screens are still up. The leaker really liked taking photos of the women trophies focusing mostly on their... assets, so be forewarned.
It's rumored that the leaked videos and images are from an ESRB rating version of the game, but the leaker was a Nintendo of America employee. The original leaker has been identified, fired, and sued. Remember kids, don't violate your non-disclosure agreements!
Right off the bat I know this is fake. Why? Look at Game and Watch’s picture for the roster image. It appears the person who made this needs to practice more with Photshop, lol XD. G&W’s hand is off of the tile and on Wario’s face. Also, knowing the how creative Sakurai is, the character screen would not be that messy. I mean come on, characters are all over the place and in front of a dull background.
And also, Duck and Dog from Duck Hunt??? Really? That’s not even possible in my imagination.
I certainly hope it’s not true for Krystal to be unplayable. I hope they change their minds and make Krystal a playable character, whether its dlc or normal!
This is not a simple photoshop. There are something like 50 pictures from all over the game (menus, alternate modes, and matches). There’s also video, as I said. The video shows Bowser Jr., Shulk, and Ganondorf fighting (among other already revealed fighters). You can find mirrors of the video on YouTube. I’m not going to post it here because each video will get taken down shortly anyway.
Really? Not possible even in your imagination? Like ROB the Robot or Wii Fit Trainer?
That’s not Game & Watch’s hand. That’s a dark area of Wario’s shirt and his mustache. Low resolution and odd color choices can make you see things that aren’t there, as in this famous example.
There’s room for 5 more character slots on the select screen…that equals the 5 DLC characters – Wolf, Lucas, Snake, Chorus Men, and Ice Climbers. Also, the Krystal trophy looks near identical to her one from Brawl. If Krystal was a new playable character, they would have updated her look at least somewhat, and the trophy would reflect that…instead, the trophy looks identical to how she looks in Assault, same model and everything. Also, the leaked picture of Wario’s trophy mentions him being a Smash Bros. fighter…no mention of Krystal being a fighter in her trophy’s description.
Sad to say, but put it’s pretty much confirmed she’s not in. Looks like Sakurai felt Dark Pit and Dr. Mario were more worthy of being in the game than Krystal.
Valid points, but it’s too early to tell. If you’re right and the DLC characters take up 5 slots and there are only five slots left, where are the Mii Fighers at? We know they are in the game, but there’s no room for them. It’s too early to say “X isn’t in the game because there are not enough slots.”
Ah, I forgot about the Mii Fighters. You’re right, they aren’t on the select screen. Also, I just read on SmashBoards.com that the DLC leak has been proven to be false. However, that doesn’t mean that those 5 characters will not be in the game.
There’s still the problem of Krystal’s trophy still being the Assault model though.
That is true, but then again, this is the 3DS version. The models are all low-poly and look similar to trophies from Brawl. I agree that, for now, Krystal is probably not on the main roster, but the nature of DLC means she is just as likely as any other character to be added, since they can add anyone.
Fair enough about the dark area and videos (obviously those are legitimate), BUT like I said, Duck and Dog wouldn’t be a fighter. At least Wii Fit Trainer and ROB were capable of fighting (though you wouldn’t see it), but a duck and a dog just can’t fight. If this is true, I can’t wait to see how Sakurai makes them fight.
Also, there is something missing in this shot… Mii Fighters. I’m sure that this is supposedly the roster with everyone unlocked, so Mii Fighters should be shown… but they aren’t.
Only time will tell… and also if Nintendo says anything (apparently they already fired the guy who posted this stuff).
I want her in the game, I really do, I just don’t want to be negative about it because frankly, she needs to be in the game.
“She and Fox also became romantically involved, but no idea if here telepathic abilities were useful there as well.”
This sentence looks quite poorly written to me. Well, english isn’t my main language so I could be wrong.
So… Duck hunt dog and Pacman, but no Krystal. Duck Hunt is fun for about ten minutes.
Buh-WHA?! The Duck Hunt animals are selectable fighters now? I’ve wanted Ninty to branch out the games they represent in this crossover, but this is….. I don’t even know how this works. o_O
I hope the unplayable Krystal leak is not true.
