We all are left guessing who the next character could be in Super Smash Bros. What we can apparently rule out is the character is not Shovel Knight, Wolf, or Shantae and it is a newcomer that going to get a lot of people talking. Here’s what we know so far based on a number of tweets and forum posts.
- This character is a newcomer.
- This character is popular, but may not be the #1 character on the ballot.
- This character would make a lot of buzz in social media.
- This character is a first-party character.
- This character’s inclusion shouldn’t be a surprise.
- Although one of the guys promptly deleted the tweet, the character is not Wolf, Shovel Knight, or Shantae.
- Apparently it’s a Newcomer + New Stage combo according to Stealth.
Update: Additional information has been supplied which suggests that “Not only is the new character not affiliated with the Smash Ballot according to those in the know, but the character is supposed to be revealed “very soon” & will supposedly be released by the end of the month.”
