It could have gotten worse?


Yeah. Sakurai discarded adventure/subspace mode on this game because of leaks back in Brawl. Imagine if there was a mode or some cinematic we don't know about yet that would've surfaced in those videos...

Jeez, you're right. Thankfully, it was stopped when it did.

Dr. Mario and Dark Pit are the definition of bonus characters added later in the game. Please don't be one of those fools that think they replaced original characters.



You might seriously want to reconsider calling people childish names, just because you disagree with their opinions.

Have a nice day.

I honestly think it is kinda a lame move to sue the person for simple leaks. It is a videogame nowadays information is so abundant that you have 90% pf any given media content before it comes out so what difference does it make?

...If you work in a business and you leak information, you're violating the NDA. It's a big deal. If you let these people do it without punishment, it will happen more frequently.

Not only what Autosaver is true, but also the competition might use it against them, and many more repercussions.

@Devil_Rising
Way to ignore the fact that a clone doesn't replace an original character.

On the bright side, the leaked characters have me more interested in the game than I have been in the last several months.

Props to Moron-Leaker-Man for taking one for the team.

He has a point. We don't do name-calling around here. You get a warning for that this time; don't do it again.

For Sakurai's sake I hope this roster is fake.
Not as good as Melee's or even Brawl's. :(

What did he expect? e_e It's completely stupid to lose your job and possibly your life funds, just to show off a game like... almost less than a month from release.

Not only that, but thanks to him, everything in the game I cared about and wanted to not spoil for myself, was thrust into my face as something I thought was false, then revealed to be real. So I was unintentionally spoiled. So that ruins the surprise and a lot of the fun I was looking forward to.

Well that's what you get. Go rot in hell mister.

About the roster, I think it's great, very varied and there are great surprises there. The best roster so far. But I mean... no Ice Climbers. That is really sad.

@Devil_Rising This.

Shulk's awesome [and Duck Hunt Dog is definitely the WTF character for this game]. But Lucina, Dr Mario and Dark Pit are just a waste... And Bowser Jr is meh [that cannonball attack of his would be perfect for K Rool, for one].

No Ice Climbers [Mewtwo, a new DK character and or Isaac] is also a WTF move.

It's not over yet. The leakers have said that there are more characters.

That may not be true, but there is still hope at the very least.

I don't think there is hope for Ice Climbers, though. :( (one of the original leaks that detailed Bowser Jr. just like we saw him yesterday specifically noted that they were removed IIRC)

*sighs*

Terrible, terrible news :(
I'm afraid the only way to make up for that now is a brand new Ice Climber for the eShop with local and online co-op Nintendo.
...
Please?

That... would only make his legal fees much higher.

EDIT: UNless you're joking. Whoops.


Purposely bad advice to increase my amusement of the situation ;). Plus I want the buyer to confirm the rest of the roster.

The malice you people are imposing on this person is sickening. For leaking minute details that Nintendo was going to highly likely release before the games release anywho. Yeah it was stupid, but if what's happened is true, the person's career in the games industry is over and you're almost celebrating it.....stay classy.

There'd be such a different tune being sung in the comments here had this been EA firing a suing an employee for the same.

No, it wouldn't have.

If someone breaks the NDA, they break the NDA. They knew this when applying for the job. If getting internet points is more important than a safe income, so be it.

"Fool" is hardly childish name-calling, especially when it's true:
"a person who lacks judgment or sense."
Besides, he didn't call any specific person any name. People are so sensitive nowadays...

I'd say WFT is the WTF character of this game. Duck Hunt Dog does remind me of Game & Watch and R.O.B., however.

I'll accept whatever dumb characters they're going to slap in it (so long as they're from Nintendo franchises).

But I STILL want my Ice Climbers, Game & Watch, and ROB. Just sayin.

If that leak is true and it's pretty much 100% confirmed it is, then R.O.B is in.
Which is awesome.

Also, if this is true then the DLC one might also be true and seeing what just happened with MK8, I wouldn't even be surprised. The Ice Climbers were in the rumored DLC.

They have to sort one thing out though. If they have DLC for SB, I DON'T want to pay twice to get the same content for both versions.
