Well, we all knew it was just a matter of time. For ever since Super Smash Bros For Switch was announced at the last Nintendo Direct, people have been wondering who was going to be new to the game outside of the Inklings. And where there are questions about rosters, leaks are sure to follow, and low and behold, we have that now.
Enter Vergeben, a man who has done many leaks in the past, and has actually been right more times than he hasn’t. Including leaking that the TMNT would bein Injustice 2. So, what’s he “revealing”? Well, first, he claims that Super Smash Bros For Switch will indeed be a full-on sequel. Not a port.
But, as for the roster, he claims that no characters from the Wii U/3DS titles will be cut, that includes the DLC characters like Cloud, Ryu, and Bayonetta. As for new entries, he claims that two are already confirmed by his sources. First is Ridley from Metroid, who has been asked for by fans FOREVER!!!
As for the inevitable “epic 3rd party inclusion”, Konami is apparently stepping up again and giving the game Simon Belmont from Castlevania. Given that the series started out on SNES with Simon Belmont as the lead, that actually makes this a perfect fit.
I must emphasize that this is pure rumor right now, but with E3 only 3 weeks away, we might find out sooner rather than later if this is true.
