Smash Leak: Final Roster Confirmed
Another leak showing of the game's roster exactly the same as before. But this time, there's also a screen informing the player he has unlocked the All-Star Mode, where you can face off against every character, implying heavily that this constitutes all the characters. Wolf is definitely not here. Mii Fighters are noticeably missing, but no-one knows how they're going to work as far as the roster goes.
I'm pretty sure this is the final version, not the demo version that was playable in Japan earlier this week. However, roster space and the fact that this is the 3DS version (as opposed to the Wii U version), makes me hopeful for DLC characters, especially if Nintendo wants to add some additional incentives to pick up the game on Wii U that they essentially already have on the 3DS.

Well this sucks bollocks. She’d damn well be on DLC. This proves Nintendo hates both her and Wolf.
Ha ha, come on now. You’re taking this personally. Failing to include a character in Smash does not mean they hate that character. Think of all the hundreds of characters they must ‘hate’ if that were true.
@Mr.Krystal, I know, but still, I find it to be disappointing to say the least. We could’ve gone without Mii Fighters (which is weird, seeing as he’s not on the roster on that screenshot). No Wolf or Krystal, I mean, sure, there’s DLC, but I just…it’s weird. I hope the game gets modded. Sorry for my negativity :(
Mario Kart 8 can add characters with DLC. And it would take more testing and a longer time, but supposedly Smash Bros. can do this, too.
There’s actually hope still which connects both WiiU and 3DS. Here: http://mynintendonews.com/2014/09/11/wii-u-and-nintendo-3ds-smash-bros-to-get-additional-characters-by-linking-versions/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=facebook
Mii fighters, as Sakurai has said, is strictly local melee mode, special melee, etc. Basically local multiplayer. And as for Krystal being missing, well, I can say that i somewhat saw this coming. With DLC, it’s totally going to happen, but that’s if Sakurai wants to do it.
Wait, who’s that on the bottom row, far right? Looks like there’s a lot of silver to it. It might be the chest piece of Krystal’s flight suit. Yes, I’m convinced it is now. Krystal is a playable character! :D
There’s going to be a Nintendo Treehouse event for Smash today I believe, so we’ll know more about the final roster. Ugh, this is what I get for getting hopes up XDDD
I’m not disappointed that Krystal isn’t in it, I’m disappointed that Duck Hunt Dog got in instead.
I think Nintendo just going off on their ideas and the fans probably have a little impact on what and how it goes.
So Fire Emblem now gets four reps…while Star Fox drops down to two? Even Kid Icarus has more reps at three.
I’m very disappointed that Krystal is not a playable character… And they even took out Wolf! What really burns me up though, is the characters they decided to add instead. I mean Pacman, seriously? They better add them in the DLC, or I’m going to be replacing a lot of their BS characters and adding in SF/SW members. At least they decided to keep Charizard and Lucario though, otherwise I don’t think it would even be worth buying.
Exactly, it pisses me off, she’d better be in DLC.
I know people are disappointed, but I kind of saw it coming. But no worries, I’m very sure there will be another smash bros game in the future. Also consider that there is a new star fox game in the works and that will bring the franchise back to life. However I did feel like sakurai slapped in the face with this smash installment, absolutely no love for star fox. Cheer up people! :)
Until we hear otherwise, Krystal just might be an unlockable character. Like if you beat the game X amount of times or if you’ve been in battle for X amount of hours. Because that is how you unlock some characters in the previous Smash Bros games. So there is still that chance.
There is this though, take it of what you will
For those that can’t open links: On the cover of the 3DS version of Smash, it says that it takes 17,300 blocks (2.1 GB of data) & when someone tried to download the game off the E-Shop, it said it’d take 9,320 blocks (And no, its not uncompressed, its still 9,320 blocks).
Subtract those numbers together & you’ll get 7,980 blocks (997 MB) left to something. Perhaps it’ll be DLC like with Mario Kart 8 (Especially considering that they got Link, Isabelle, & the Villager) & maybe Krystal & Wolf will become downloadable characters.
Very disappointing roster. What was Sakurai even thinking of putting Dark Pit and Dr. Mario in there that no one wanted not to mention that they should have been as an alt uniform and palette swap since they have the same movesets as Mario and Pit. Ughh…and what grinds my gears is that the Starfox roster is reduced to 2 at this moment and Wolf is not there and I was really hoping that Krystal was going to be the next newcomer every Starfox fan wanted. Starfox fans aren’t the only ones who got shafted there, but the Metroid, Zelda and DK fans also of any characters they wanted to see like Impa, Dixie Kong(or King K. Rool) and Ridley along with Krystal since these are the heavily requested characters from the fans.
Sigh..well at least we’re getting a new Starfox Wii U game next year and Miyamoto is really making a big deal out of it and I’m very certain our favorite blue vixen will be back since she has already established herself in the series so far being in 3 SF games as the same amount as Wolf has. Anyway, I still believe there’s a very good chance that SSB4 will have DLC since there’s like 5 or 6 spaces I see there in the 3DS roster and also the fact that the Wii U version could have a few more characters there and you can be able to transfer them into the 3DS version so that both versions can have the same roster. That would be a good incentive for Nintendo to persuade the consumers to buy both versions. If Nintendo can do it with Mario Kart 8 on DLC coming up(which looks great and would love to see Fox being a guest character for MK8 in DLC especially with Starfox Wii U coming next year), then so can with SSB4.
I speak Japanese, so maybe I can ask Sakurai directly if Krystal will ever be in the game via DLC, because frankly, this is BS in my opinion :/ Failing that, the game will be hacked.
@the_randomizer – That wouldn’t be a bad idea to tell Sakurai about that to have DLC for SSB4 which is very likely and when that happens, to listen to what the fans really want for the highly requested characters and to include our blue vixen in there along with any other newcomer like Ridley, Dixie or K. Rool.
@Dragonheart07 Found this http://www.gamnesia.com/news/hidden-smash-bros-icons-may-suggest-more-characters-are-coming Also yes, I sent him a message on his Twitter (in non Google translated Japanese), asking him about her, not sure if/when I’ll get a response. I wish there was a better way to contact him.
nice im sure a lot of people are at ease knowing that’s outa the way.
