Full Super Smash Bros. roster to be revealed next month

Super-Smash-Bros-header

Legendary Japanese publication CoroCoro has announced that it will reveal the full character roster for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game in the next issue it releases. This roster reveal is for the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, but given that the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U will have the same roster, we’ll be getting a peek at the final fighters for both games a bit early.

We’re including an additional jam-packed volume containing all of the characters and stages for the up and coming 3DS version of Smash Bros.!!! Keep your eyes peeled for when it goes on sale!

Of course, this likely doesn’t include any hidden characters that Nintendo has in mind for the series, so keep that in mind for next month when this issue surfaces. Are you finally ready to see the final list of characters? Captain Falcon and two additional characters were announced yesterday. Who is left that we haven’t seen yet that you’d like in the game? Let us know in the comments.

  • Ducked

    I wonder if anymore new characters will be added, or just returning. I’d still love to see Shulk (from Xenoblade) and Chrom (yes more Fire Emblem).

    • BIG Franky

      Chrom isn’t happening…. Shulk is a solid “probably” though…

      • Ducked

        You’re probably right about Chrom, still would love Nintendo to put him in Smash. Maybe as a DLC.

        • Nookling

          Chrom was confirmed unplayable. He is in Robins final smash.

        • James McPherson

          Wouldn’t DLC have to be on both since they share the same roster? I mean I would totally dig that idea to add more characters to the set roster to battle it out.

  • TheGrizzledBoor

    Shulk (Xenoblade), Tetra (TLoZ: WW), King K. Rool (Donkey Kong) and Wonder Red (Wonderful 101) please

    • Guest

      Sakurai said that Wonder Red will not be a character, just a trophy.

    • Poojan Raval

      Wonder Red is just a trophy, Tetra is an assist trophy. Both confirmed by Sakurai.

  • Shagrath1983

    I main the heavy characters of Bowser and Dedede so I need one more big guy added to the list

  • Razo_E

    Toad would be a great fighter. Not just a parry for Peach that works only 60% of the time.

    • Merry_Blind

      Yeah it’s pretty surprising he hasn’t made it into the franchise yet. Who know, if games like Captain Toad: Treasure Trackers come out more often and are popular, he might make it into the next one!

    • Kirbyomega

      I think bandana Dee is much more likely

      • Jay Caulfield

        Oh hell yes! And I think it’s fairly likely as dedede’s side b throws gordos only rather than waddle dees and doos. Plus it would be easy to make a moveset for him. Pretty much a copy paste of his moves in return to dreamland. I would definitely main him.

  • BIG Franky

    I can pretty much guarantee that the full roster wont be revealed next month…I don’t think they are outright lying… I just think the wording is flawed, I am sure what they mean is that they will detail the full roster that has been announced TO DATE… it would make zero sense to have roster revealed so long prior to release…

    • CydeFxt

      Makes sense

    • mojack411

      Yeah, this doesn’t look quite right to me too. I don’t think we’ll ever get the true full roster before the game releases.

    • The Clockwork Being

      I think it will be the starting roster.

    • greengecko007

      I hope that you’re right, but let’s not forget that Nintendo revealed the full driver roster for Mario Kart 8 a month before the game came out. Next month we will be 2 months away from the 3DS version releasing.

    • kevin nun—-

      They probably wont. Hope they update the game’s graphics prior release though. Looks like Brawl in HD.

    • http://vivid-dark.us/ Travion

      either way, who cares? the roster won’t be secret forever.

    • Yousif Alromaithi

      I expect Shulk to get in. Withe expectations of Mewto or quite possibly Mew. I expect Ghirahim to make a cut with Ganon too. Aside from that Nintendo is listening to fans so Shulk should be in.

    • AlexLuigi

      I believe this is a sign that we are going to have a Nintendo Direct showing Smash and other titles.

    • RockieOllie

      We did get new famitsu scans!

  • CydeFxt

    I really do love the new reveals of characters, its exciting and builds the anticipation…….but i also REALLY wish that there would be at least 2 or 3 secret fighters.

    Either way I think i might lose hours upon hours of sleep on launch night/day.

  • MARIO’SMOUSTACH

    WHERE IS JIGGGLYPUFF??!?!??!?!??!?!??!

    • Little Seal

      PLEASE DON’T SAY THAT NAME AGAIN.
      Whom play as Jigglypuff??????????

      • Merry_Blind

        Everybody plays as her whenever they feel silly.

        • Little Seal

          Waste a slot for fun? Or for being silly?
          Let’s just create a “FUN MODE” when you can choose
          Jigglypuff or Wario.

          • Merry_Blind

            Yeah why not… After all, fun is… well fun is fun!

      • Saul Rivera

        So you didn’t see how Jigglypuff pummled Fox at EVO 2014?

        • Little Seal

          Did Jigglypuff win?

          Nope,ok,try again next Championship.

          • Saul Rivera

            It’s not the fact if he won or not…the point is…people use it…and they use it quite well to ask “whom play as Jigglypuff?”

          • Little Seal

            People use it…ok,that’s true,only my 5 yrs old cousin.
            And there’s another thing,Jigglypuff can be replaced by another new character,like Wonder Red,Mallow,Duck Hunt Dog (see SmashBoards if you want to be a pro).

            Seriously,Jigglypuff & Wario is just for madness via local.
            There’s no Jigglypuff spinoff to make it worth her(?) appearance again on SSB.

            But take it esay,probably Sakurai will put again for “real gamers” like you.

          • Saul Rivera

            Funny how you’re making Smash sound so professional just because people use it for tournaments….it’s a multiplayer party game at it’s heart..so characters like those are always welcomed.

          • Little Seal

            And about the EVO final,that guy just want attention playing with the worst character,if he won,the Fox “player” should put his head inside the ground ¬¬º

      • Razo_E

        If you can land “rest” you can knock people out so easily. It’s hard, but the payoff is worth it. That said, I only play with her in Project M, not “regular” Brawl.

      • Jay Caulfield

        Jigglypuff is one of the original 12. There is no chance of her being taken out of smash.

        • Little Seal

          DAMMIT! Finally a real good argument against mine!
          Yes man,maybe Jigglypuff will be back because she(?) was in the first N64 SSB series.

  • TheyCallHimBigAl

    I know there’s been rumors, but I’d love to see Ness confirmed. Robin’s moveset seems similar to Ness’ (long range energy based projectile) and that worries me that they’d drop him.

    • Merry_Blind

      No chance in hell. Ness was in the original. He will come back, just like Captin Falcon and Jigglypuff.

      • TheyCallHimBigAl

        I hope so. It took them long enough to announce Captain Falcon, and from what I can tell he’s a much more popular fighter than Ness.

        • Merry_Blind

          Thing is, these characters should be a given! I don’t understand why people were afraid Captain Falcon would get cut out, same for Ness or Jiggly. They’re all-stars, they’re the veterans. It’s as if they would remove Kirby, or Pikachu. Could you imagine a Smash game without Kirby?

      • 00EpicGamer00

        You do realize Ness was almost removed from Brawl, right?

        • Merry_Blind

          How come? Sakurai said that?

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Yeah. Sakurai originally planned for Ness to be removed in favor of Lucas but ended up putting them both in.

          • Merry_Blind

            Yeah I did some research after I read your comment. Still, I doubt he can remove him at this point, and I don’t see why he would. He’s much more iconic than Lucas, and for the Smash franchise itself, it’s a staple in my book. I mean, those PIKAFIRE and homerun bat and that lighting hitting his own butt to send him flying are just waaayyyy too awesome and memorable to be removed from the game.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Very true. I too don’t think Sakurai will remove him but, who knows? Sakurai almost did in Melee. He could possible actually do it for this game. But, we’ll just have to wait and see.

          • Merry_Blind

            Indeed!

        • LevenThumps

          Ness was almost removed from Melee, not Brawl.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            Are you sure? I thought it was Brawl where that occured. Oh wait…I just looked it up and you’re right. My bad. You mine if I fix that?

  • TheSneakyLizard

    Come on Ice Climbers. Where the hell are you?

    • Kirbyomega

      The polar bear is an enemy in smash run…

      • TheSneakyLizard

        I know, but still, it baffles me as to why the IC’s have not been revealed yet.

        • eli

          ness and jiggly haven’t been released yet…you must be surprised that many characters haven’t been released yet…

        • TehEngineer

          There probably going to be hidden character this time round. Along with Mr Game & Watch, Jigglypuff and Ganondorf and Wario. (Somehow I think Ness will be announced before the game releases).

  • WiiUisgaming

    Ness and Lucas will be back

    • abe

      Doubt both, Sakai has been working really hard to limit clones

      • disqus_sgtob6da3X

        Uh…Ness was never a clone to begin with and it seem like Lucina is very similar to Marth.

        • abe

          Doubt BOTH as in Ness or lucas will be there but not thw two of them. never said Ness was a clone

          • disqus_sgtob6da3X

            guess just wait and see.

      • the_battery

        Actually, both Lucas and Ness have differences in the PSI powers they use. i don’t know who uses what, but they are different.

        • abe

          Well technically Ness and Lucas use their “Party’s” powers apart from PK fire… I think.
          So they could have completely different powers between smash appearance

      • majora :D

        Uhh… Lucina?

        • abe

          “limit” not “removed entirely”

          • majora :D

            Checkmate

  • Saul Rivera

    For me Mr. Game & Watch…it’s the one character I used a lot on the Wii…

  • Justin Carlson

    How about a Squid (Inkling) from Splatoon? I think that could bring some unique moves.

    • abe

      Provided splatoon doesn’t tank hard I would be shocked of the squids didn’t appear in smash 5

      • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

        ”Provided splatoon doesn’t tank” Unintentional pun

  • Vorpal Blade

    M body is ready!

  • Ducked

    I’m guessing they will reveal Peter Griffin, Bugs Bunny, Regis Philbin, Elsa, Kim Kardashian, Crash Bandicoot, and The Smokey Bear.

    • Squid

      You forgot shrek.

      • Ducked

        I knew I was forgetting someone!

      • TehEngineer

        And Shadow. And Goku. And some other form of Marth…

        • 00EpicGamer00

          And Isaac from Dead Space.

    • eli

      you’re joking right?

    • triplegamer3K .

      So…I’m curious to know just what there final smashes will be?

      • Ducked

        Peter Griffin: Final Hump
        Bugs Bunny: Carrot RPG
        Regis Philbin: Kelly Slam
        Elsa: Marshmallow
        Kim Kardashian: Booty Smack
        Crash Bandicoot: Aku-Aku Invincibility
        Smokey Bear: Wildfire

        • triplegamer3K .

          Smokey Bears makes no sense. :(

  • Logan Wayman

    Wario, Game and Watch and Meta Knight all the way.

    • Kirbyomega

      Notice the stage in one of the captain falcon pictures

      • Zanzama

        Looks like Halberd Stage which got revealed a long time ago. Of course it does somewhat support the return of Meta Knight.

    • Maury

      game and watch most likely going to be a hidden character like the past two smash games

    • the_battery

      Did you even watch the pac-man release? they un-official announced game and watch at the end.

      • Nookling

        Right… Which is why he still wants Game and Watch to be confirmed…

  • Henry Hotspur

    I remember some publication said the exact same thing for Brawl before it was being released.

    Turns out, they only showed all the characters that were already showcased. I can’t imagine this being any different. Nintendo is going to present new characters themselves, not this “CoroCoro” publication.

    • The Clockwork Being

      But CoroCoro handles pretty much all the pokemon info so they could be a credible source.

      • Nookling

        Corocoro released basically all new Pokemon information so I don’t see why they couldn’t release some for smash. I’m guessing one or two returning fighters would be it though.

        • J_Joestar

          Welll they are claiming it will be the full roster (probably excluding hidden unlockables). so chances are Sakurai has pretty much given us all the “New” characters that aren’t hidden and most of the CoroCoro release’s “new” content will feature returnees with maybe 1 truly New character at most.

    • TehEngineer

      I think it was the exact same publication…

  • Nabecoat

    I’d like to see Isaac (Golden Sun), Mike Jones (Star Tropics), and a return of Ganondorf.

    • Dark Link

      Have you been following my posts? :P

  • Super Buu

    Does that mean Shulk still has a chance?

  • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

    Am I the only one who want MetaKnight back? I know he was OP in Brawl but damn it, he’ s my favorite Kirby character

    • eli

      I doubt that they won’t have him, and halberd was announced as a stage, so there is viable support to his release

    • abe

      I think he’ll be back but will be heavily altered. This smash seems to be aiming for tournaments no tripping, reflected poses when characters turn, multiple “final destination” levels, no transformations and alterations to flight are all geared for tournaments

  • David Horowitz

    Don’t do that! I want to have a LITTLE of the game to explore once I get it. They didn’t reveal nearly this much before Brawl came out, did they?!

    • Kiki Fogg

      They’d revealed all of the starters, including newcomers, before Brawl came out in Japan, & I think all of the unlockable characters by the time it came out in America.

  • anthony optimo

    Awe, I like surprises…

  • https://twitter.com/Zorpix_Fang Zorpix

    I haven’t listened to leaks before now, I don’t intend to start

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    HA Don’t Make Me Laugh

    • Larry Howell

      I don’t know why…. but I read that is Shao Khan’s voice.

      • Ninty The Rage Kid

        You’re not the only one.

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        and Dark Pit’s

  • Arthur Jarret

    Brawl had Wolf, Toon link etc. unlocked and they weren’t announced on the Dojo… so I’m guessing we won’t know the full roster until reviewers with their early copies spoil it for us a week in advance

  • MewThree28

    I’d love it if Falco, Game-and-Watch, Ness, and Ganondorf were confirmed

    it’s probably more than likely they will be returning though

  • NowhereStarr14

    Game & Watch!
    Game & Watch!
    Game & Watch!

  • great deku tree

    I know this will never happen but here’s some 3rd party characters that I’d love to be in SSB4:
    Ryu from Street Fighter and Lloyd Irving, Kratos and Sheena from Tales of Symphonia

    • majora :D

      Sorry to burst your bubble, but Sakurai has explicitly specified there will not be any characters from fighting games on Smash. Sad, because Ryu is a no-brainer: Up B Shoryuken, Neutral B Hadouken, Side B Shakunetsu Hadouken, Down B Tatsumaki Senpukyaku

  • uPadWatcher

    One word– BAYONETTA!

    • eli

      No, just…no…

      • Dexrobo

        I don’t see anything wrong with Bayonetta, she’s interesting and now her game is a Wii U exclusive

    • abe

      Not for this one, if her 3rd game is Nintendo exclusive as the devs want then I’m sure shell make some appearance in smash 5

    • Stephen

      Agreed. She needs to be in this game. It would be really weird if she isn’t playable…

  • Ninty The Rage Kid

    There still might be hope…

  • Squid

    I’m pretty sure they will leak either the last newcomers or the starting roster.

  • Leandro Ariel

    Still waiting for Ganondorf… :(

    • eli

      I actually am not certain whether or not he’ll be in, as he’s pretty much a captain falcon clone that’s heavier and does more damage…

      • majora :D

        They DID try to make him different from the Cap in Brawl… but yeah, it’s a heavy candidate to get the boot

        • triplegamer3K .

          They gave him a sword.That he doesn’t use.But he thinks it looks cool.So why not? :3

    • 0Xero0

      not as badly as me, i would pay double for the game just to have ganondorf return!

  • Bobby P.

    Didn’t they release the full roster for Brawl? I remember it being a real bummer to not be surprised by new challangers.

  • James Miller I

    Shulk !

  • Nookling

    ICE CLIMBERS BAYBAYYYY

    • TheSneakyLizard

      What!?

      Edit: Oh, never mind. Sorry, I though when ya said “BAYBAYYYY”, I thought it meant “bye-bye”. Again, sorry for the misunderstanding.

      But regardless, I eagerly await the reveal of the Ice Climbers.

      • Nookling

        I want everyone back but Wolf, Snake, ROB, and Lucas. I think ROB will be back though and I want Ice climbers and Jigglypuff back the most!

        • majora :D

          You want Ice Climbers back, but not Snake back?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9G0RJmm3KQ&feature=kp

          • Nookling

            Snake did not look like he belonged in Brawl and the games aren’t coming to Nintendo platforms…

          • majora :D

            True, but in gameplay terms he was a pretty interesting character

          • 0Xero0

            the only character made to be insanely tactical and strategistical

          • Nookling

            True as well

  • eli

    wouldn’t it be cool if the characters that nintendo announced were JUST the starters and there’s still lots of unlockables, very unlikely though XD

    • 0Xero0

      would give me hope for the return of ganondorf, yes it would lol

  • Lewis J Neal

    Hopefully it’s this guy

    All I do like ice climbers to come back

    • 00EpicGamer00

      I would LOVE Rayman to be playable. But I think it’s most likely a fake image.

    • http://myanimelist.net/profile/flclfool flclfool

      Nope, he’s a smash trophy though :o

  • FastRDust

    I Would like to see Snake and Wario again!!! altough i’m probably the only one

  • josephnorton

    Am I the only one who just wants to wait until I get the game to find out what the full roster is?

  • Kmac

    I know who the last character is going to be, It’s the paddle in PING PONG i know it is!!!!

  • Xavier James Hernandez Aguayo

    I really want Lip to join this Fight hope she does <3

  • Guest

    How I think the Roster might look Like :D

    • Willie The Lucario Master

      I think Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton are getting in as theyve become very popular in the 3DS community

  • James McPherson

    Sora no matter the chance to get in would be a pretty sick fighter! if not now then Smash 5 as 3rd party. :D

  • Charizard

    why does it mater if we find out next month, because japan still gets the in early september.

  • TheBrainJemin

    Ridley.
