      1. The only one sI call Nintendo fans are those who loves games and not nonsense..

      2. There are still about 90% hardcore fanboys and about 10% true Nintendo fans on this site.

      3. That happens when trolls are allowed to roam free…

      4. Pfft. They probably started off as Playstation & Xbox fans. Quit acting like they don’t have sex starved humans in their midst.

      5. Then you get disappointed because the huge bulge is a shower and that’s it, so when he gets an erection it’s almost the same exact size.

        TO BAD CAPTAIN FALCON IS JUST A SHOW OFF AND IS ONLY AVERAGE WHEN ERECT. I hear mario only is 3 inches hard….. poor fatlard. Now i here bowser though has a huge dick. 24 inches and 10 in girth, have fun with bowser.

      6. Oh dear… So that’s what all that spaghetti does to you…

      7. At least that’s what I’ve heard. Could be mistaking it for another animal’s hog though. Ok, end of conversation.

      8. I want to be surprised when I play the game. If they have to reveal something, I’d rather it be anything BUT a character.

      9. We don’t need mode reveals. They need to announce all of the characters first, then focus on modes.
        There are two types of Smash Bros players. Online and couch players. Nobody does anything other than fight in battle modes.
        Look at PlayStation All-Stars. That game only had Arcade, Free Battle, and Online Mode, and it was better than Smash Bros, Melee, and Brawl combined.

      10. Better than Brawl, maybe, but not better than Melee. That Smash Bros knockoff has nothing on Super Smash Bros Melee!

      11. Never played Melee, but I hate the way people keep saying it’s better than Brawl. >.<

      12. no, silly! you can’t announce ALL the characters pre-release. you need to leave some for unlocks!!

      1. Not nescesarily. Bayonetta is THIRD-PARTY. Not only do we already have 3 third-party characters, but Hideki Kamiya (Is that how you spell it) the creator of Bayonetta and W101 has practically disconfirmed her (he told people that requested her to “Fuvk off” on twitter.

        Wonder Red would be a better choice. Plus he’s second-party.

  1. Seeing that its comic con, I’d REALLY love comic book tie in, or an anime of some sort.

    1. Figm partnership, all of the character will be made into pose able figures, like, figma link and samus

    2. A more fully-realized animated show like the one used to present Palutena, Link vs Kid Icarus

      1. Portal 3, Team Fortress 3, Left 4 Dead 3, etc. (other third installments) CONFURMED!!!!!!8(;37$@90@!):/:,($8@’bcddyinxweygfsr!,|{^+=’n/o/t/r/e/a/l/l/y:)42589!;/48&!;:;

  2. My money is on a character reveal, or maybe something about Amiibos for Capt Falcon and Robin and stuff

    1. I live on a different continent and the closest we get to a real gaming convention is once a year and no big reveals are made

      I hate my country

      1. I hate PC fanboys more than all Xbox, Sony, and Nintendo fanboys put together.

      2. They will soon be challenged by the Apple Mac army…

      3. PC fanboys are sooooo dumb with their vast array 3rd party games, cheapest and best deals by the load, advance emulators, most powerful and advance hardware, highest graphics around, your choice of controllers, best, unlimited, and massive online multiplayer experience, best multitasker and not to mention all systems trying to emulate and ultimately become a pc and yes even Nintendo (Nintendo family computer and wii design)……screw those delusional nutjobs. Consoles are obviously superior. Nintendo FTW!!!!!!✋

      4. PC did it before consoles. Consoles = copypaste fads. Consoles are only playing the catch up game with PC. And if Nintendo is playing the catch up game with the latest consoles, what does that say about them?

        Obvious cheap recycled material is garbage is obvious.

      5. Without consoles, a majority of gamers wouldn’t even exist as of today.

      6. Except PC destroys all. Smart PC enthusiasts don’t care if they are called fanboys. Since they made it themselves.

    1. King K. Rool, Black Shadow and Sylux have to be confirmed…

      We need more villains and not stupid heroes…

      1. Please stop embarrasing yourself, we don’t need nobodies in our empire…

      2. Also, you failed to spot the joke on my last post. You said we don’t need any more heroes so I said why not Travis Touchdown. Get it? Because… No More Heroes? No? :P

      3. That’s alright. It doesn’t really look like the type of game you’d be interested in. And gameplay is dull and lackluster. Only thing worth it is the bosses.

      4. Bosses you say…

        I love Boss Battles the most in games if they are challenging enough…

      5. Depends on your definition of challenging. You can change the difficulty, but I wouldn’t do that if I were you. You need to swing the Wiimote around to attack and unless you want to end up breaking down your whole house, I would recommend staying on the easier difficulty. The Wiimote will tire you out enough as it is. :P

      6. You’re talking to a Commander here, not some young grunt…

      7. I see your butthurt will never end until they include your cousin back…

      8. Instead of Dry Bowser, we get Fawful. Instead of Dry Bones, we get Kammy Koopa. Instead of Kid Bowser, we get Shadow Mario.

      9. How are these for villains? Least these guys are their own characters. Except for Shadow Mario of course, he is just Kid Bowser in disguise.

      10. I don’t even care about characters anymore at this point. They need to add more tracks…

    2. I suspect that King K. Rool is owned by Rare. But I’m not sure? Why else would he have never appeared in a Smash Bros. game?

    1. I really friggin hope so. It could, however, lower the chances of them getting a Wii U because they already have Smash bros on their 3ds.

      1. Not enough Pokemon! D:< We need Mewtwo, Zoroark, & most importantly Jigglypuff!

      1. Elsa and Anna storm into battle!!! I would really hope not. . . XD

    1. Why do people keep wanting Shulk? A character with a dumb name, from a game that I think sucks (yet everyone else praises for some unknown reason)!

      1. Not to mention it’s one of the first big games from Monolith Soft that was made as a 1st party Nintendo title. Baten Kaitos & Baten Kaitos Origins don’t count since they were co-developed by Monolith Soft before Nintendo 100% owned them.

      1. Not particularly- if she uses the staff she had in Adventures, she could FINALLY be a Star Fox character with an original moveset instead of copying Fox’s for the Nth time.

        I’m all for her inclusion.

      2. Agreed. Maybe as Falco’s replacement so we can keep Wolf for the Star Fox villain role since Andross is out of the question. He’s one character I would definitely call too big for Smash. lol

      3. Oh but he can. The “if he’s downsized, he’ll lose his threatening appeal!” is just stupid, to be honest. Bowser doesn’t lose his dangerous appeal when he’s not much bigger than Mario & his average size in the games is usually 3-5 times bigger than Mario.

      4. Or We could have 4 star fox reps so everybody wins :D Everyone stays and krystal joins peace on earth -u-

      5. If we do get 4, I say Falco gets replaced by Slippy with Krystal being the 4th rep. Give Slippy a chance. Falco can come back for the next game if Slippy does worse than Falco.

      6. Yes, Slippy. Falco had his chance. Let’s give Slippy a chance if we can’t get 5 Star Fox characters.

  3. Hm. I wonder what it will be. If it’s not a big reveal that will please everyone, I see the Smash community on Miiverse to be plagued by crybabies.

    1. It probably isn’t anything big because we always get shut down when we hear these things…

      1. Its always our fault though, we hype the crap out of every little announcement.

      2. Yep. I’m glad I didn’t hype up Shulk or Ridley for Monday’s character reveal or I’d most likely be in a very pissed off state right now because of who was ultimately revealed. lol

    1. Better for Smash than that abomination UFC garbage that utterly destroys his image…

      1. Definately, i always laugh when people say that Bruce Lee is a father of UFC. Yes Bruce made mixed martial arts popular with JKD but he never liked fightin with a rules which is what UFC is about. Bruce was a street fighter and not one of those UFC fancy pants.

      2. Like that swedish Mauler crybaby that cannot aceept defeat…

      1. Let me tell you it would be so bad ass. Then they should add Reggie and Iwata in as well, man Smash with real people would be so freaking badass, imagine fighting against Anthony Bourdain LMAO!

      2. Haha, throw in Gordon Ramsay the nutjob chef and you have a masterpiece!

      3. Gordon’s Final Smash: Flames engulf the screen and everyone gets knocked into the sky followed by him yelling “GET OUT!” XD

      4. Don’t you mean:

        “Fuck off out of here!”…

        His taunts would be:

        “It’s fucking raw!”

        “Hey you, donkey!”

        “This shit looks like some rhinosaurus’ ass”

      5. That’s the reason I don’t go on Smash community unless there’s a POTD!

      6. They’ve been relegated to offline & friends only online matches. Sucks, I know, because he did create the Mii Fighters better than people were expecting from the Miis.

      7. Oh & Jet Li. Jackie Chan, Jet Li, & Bruce Lee is sadly one triple threat we’ll never see in a movie at the same time together. If he was alive today, I bet anything he would have been in the first two The Expendables movies & going on 3. *sigh*

      8. Too bad they ruined the movies since the second one…

        “We want to cater to kids”…

        Because they obviously are your target audience Stallone, said no one ever…

      9. I always thought that Kid Goku and Frieza would be right at home in Smash. Nintendo should use this chance now that Bandai Namco is working with them.

      10. I don’t get why people are so against Goku… I don’t even get what the whole 4th party thing has to do with it. Goku literally already has his own fighting games. Heck, his entire series is about fighting. But he can’t get in because… 4th party? XD

      11. Do you know how difficult it is to get third-party characters in the game?
        Also, Mickey Mouse has a whole bunch of games but I don’t see you rooting for him. Plus, Sakurai said he won’t be putting any characters from fighting games.
        Also, YES! Goku can’t get in because he’s fourth-party! No matter how many video games he (or any other non-video game characters) has, that does not make him a video game character. Smash is a place for Nintendo video game characters, and a very small amount of guest video game characters. NOT CARTOON CHARACTERS.

      12. SIGH. I said I don’t get why PEOPLE are so against it. I want to hear YOUR reasons why. I don’t care about the fact that he’s 4th party. I just want to hear your opinion on why he shouldn’t be in.

      13. Nintendo owns one of the Percy Jackson characters and is excusive to the DS excusive Lighting Thief. so most likely Disney will ask Nintendo to put Isaac in Smash Brothers in some way, since the Percy Jackson Books/ Movies/ video game is popular and the books are published by Disney and now have the video game rights

      14. 4th party=anything that didn’t originate in video games or originated with a heavy connection to video games.

      15. I don’t know who created the term “4th party” but that literally makes no sense. So if DBZ had games before the manga or TV show, he’d have a chance? Why? The whole point of the show is fighting. I’m not against Goku nor do I care enough for him to be in, but that’s kind of a silly reason to exclude characters.

      16. The fact that his show is about fighting actually decreases his chances of getting in, as Bob Jones Jr. II pointed out. Besides, that has nothing to do with who gets in (Villager, ROB, Wii Fit Trainer…).

      17. Villager & Wii Fit Trainer are video game characters. Life simulation & Fitness video games are still video games. As for ROB, he was created by Nintendo so that gives him every right to get in. Goku neither started off in video games nor was he created by Nintendo. Same with Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris, Spawn, The Violater, The Crow, Mickey Mouse, Obama, Hitler (as much as I’d love to be able to pummel his fucking face in a video game,) Stalin, Napoleon, etc etc.

      18. I know, I was just using them as examples to show that coming from a fighting game doesn’t give you priority in the roster.

      19. My reasons are that he just does not deserve to be in a game mashing up VIDEO GAME characters to fight each other.
        This has nothing to do with me disliking Goku though, it’s just that NON-VIDEO GAME characters do not belong in a smash game.
        I love Invader Zim, but I do not want Zim, Gir, Dib or anyone from that show to star in ssb4.

      20. Huh, I never thought about it that way before to be honest. You do give a valid point there. Ah, I love it when people reply to me with actual arguments that make sense. We need more intelligent people on MNN! :D

      21. And I like Bleach but I don’t want Ichigo, Orihime, Renji, Grimmjow, or any others from it. Same with Inuyasha & I love that anime.

      22. First off: Namco/Bandai already has representation in the game (Pac-Man) so they won’t be getting any more.
        Secondly, Namco/Bandai don’t own Goku, they just so happen to make games with him
        Thirdly, Goku is NOT a video game character, so he doesn’t deserve to be in smash.

      23. Smash bros already has a very non-Nintendo roster already, no need for more.

    1. God no. They would be the worst character sever and almost no one knows who they are.

  4. I know pac-man’s already the namco rep,but I’m still crossing my fingers for Lloyd Irving or Emil. Heck maybe even Luke since Tales of the Abyss got a really good 3ds version recently.

  5. This website is being moderated now, though modestly.

    It’s the dawning of a new era.

    1. Sceptile would be pretty rad since we have a fire and water starter already. I’ve voted Ghirahim since 2011 ha.

  6. A special surprise would not only be a character reveal, but more of a fan requested character reveal. I ask everyone to post who they think it will be (1 guest per user please), and whoever gets it right will get virtual bragging rights. X)

    My guess: Wario

    Note: it could be just a stage or mode, but I doubt it.

      1. Not unless he reveals the release date to before late November. A late October release date would be a pretty big surprise. And we shouldn’t think of a big surprise or otherwise a lot of people will get pissed if it’s not their guess since they built up too much hype for the reveal.

      2. I see your point, but its still only for fun. When Lucina and Robin were announced people got pissed expecting someone they wanted. No matter if someone participates in this game or not, if someone doesn’t get what they want they will be pissed. There will always be complainers, no stopping that, but lets try to be positive and continue the Smash hype. :)

      3. Indeed, only veterans missing are Jiggly and Ness. Earthbound is over here now in the west, so he should return. the Mario and Pokrmon series had 4 reps last Smash, but now Mario has 5 meaning if Pokemon follows foot there’s one spot left for her!!!

    1. One guess per user? Damn. Then I’ll have to say Shulk. I’d say Ridley but if Sakurai was by some chance going to reveal him as a playable character, I doubt it would be at a non video game social event.

      1. How bout this… They introduce a boss battle mode. Like, where you play as bosses from several different games. They can be huge and much bigger than normal characters. Ridley can be one of the bosses and he can get in Smash while still be his awesome good old self. And nobody will complain.

      2. Fuck no. I hate characters relegated to just one mode. Just because you need a character to be some giant monster to feel badass & threatening doesn’t mean it’s a fact that he’ll only be that way as a giant monster.

      3. But I said several different bosses. Not just Ridley. That would also give you the chance to play as many other boss characters that wouldn’t normally work well in the main game. Just imagine it being like playing Smash with the Super Mushroom item.

      4. If I can’t have fun using him to beat up every single character in the game while playing with other people, I’d rather not get the character in the game at all. This is why once I’ve unlocked every trophy that can only be unlocked by clearing certain modes with the Mii Fighter, it’s going to lose it’s fun factor unless I’m able to play with friends only online.

  7. I’m worried that the 3DS version of Smash Bros. is going to cause me to feel burned out when the Wii U version is released. And I’m going to feel as if I’ve already played it. I hope I’m wrong.

      1. I’m getting both. But the Wii U version is obviously going to be superior.

  8. I reckon It’ll be Krystal. Callin it now. And Falco and Wolf will be revealed in her video too. Just coz :P

  9. I mean they probably just wanted to reveal all 3 at once to generate hype. They’d do all 4 but if Fox wasn’t confirmed from the start everyone would just yell “Dead series! There’s no SF representation! It’s official!”

    Well… if that’s the reveal anyway… That’s my theory….
