Shantae Leads Latest Smash Bros Fighter Ballot Fan Poll On Reddit

A recent Reddit poll has named Shantae as the most-wanted new fighter in Super Smash Bros. With more than 2,000 votes cast, the half-genie hero led with more than 10 percent of the votes, although some popular choices such as King K. Rool, Splatoon’s Inkling and Waluigi were not included in the ballot, mainly due to the poll organizer’s belief that some characters were “deconfirmed” at the time.

Shantae, who has starred in multiple Nintendo titles, finished with more than double the number of votes of second-place finisher Shovel Knight. Smash Bros. veterans Wolf, Snake and Golden Sun’s Isaac round out the top five. If you have yet to cast your ballot in the official Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, you can share your thoughts with developers, here. Remember, the official ballot closes on October 3, 2015.


Professor Layton Rumored To Be Coming To Super Smash Bros

Professor Layton may eventually be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. This rumor stems from voice actor Christopher Robin Miller’s IMDB page, which says he’s voiced lines for the professor in the English version of the fighting game. A fan chased Miller down on Twitter to ask whether the info on IMDB was accurate, and he responded in the affirmative. Before we jump to any conclusions, it might be a good idea to wait from an official confirmation from Nintendo or even Professor Layton developer Level-5.

Nintendo Reveals When The Mewtwo amiibo Will Launch In Europe

mewtwo_amiibo_figurePokemon fans in Europe will be able to get their hands on the Mewtwo amiibo starting October 23. Although Mewtwo is the first DLC character in Super Smash Bros. to get its own amiibo, all playable characters in the fighting game will eventually have corresponding interactive figures, including Lucas, Roy and Ryu. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, players can customize their amiibo by adjusting its attack, defense and speed stats.


Alph Was Going To Be A Standalone Clone Character In Super Smash Bros

Alph was going to be a standalone clone character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Obviously, that idea didn’t make it into the released product. Instead, series director Masahiro Sakurai decided to make the Pikmin 3 explorer appear as a palette swap for Olimar in the fighting game, where he shares the same exact moveset as the captain. Both characters can pluck Pikmin creatures from the ground and attack by throwing them at opponents.


That Dr Mario Super Smash Bros Stage Leak Was Fake

Oh dear! Well, as many of you expected the Dr. Mario stage leak for Super Smash Bros was an elaborate fake. The perpetrators behind the leak took to Twitter to announce their involvement in the ruse. To be honest it was rather a good fake, but it doesn’t appear as though we will be getting that Dr. Mario stage we had secretly been waiting for.
