If you haven’t been keeping up on your Super Smash Bros. Ultimate news this week, a few days back, a supposed new leak that seemed to involve an employee at a French marketing company had many people thinking that the entire roster of this iteration of Smash had been divulged. We wrote up a pretty comprehensive post about the whole ordeal yesterday that you can read. Now, the company whose name has been involved with this leak has released a statement of their own and they don’t sound too happy about it. In the expansive note, Marina PLV denies all involvement with this roster leak and says that they are in no way working with Bandai Namco on marketing for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate right now.

The latest Smash Bros Ultimate leak suggests that Banjo-Kazooie will be featured in the Nintendo-published game. If true — and the leak certainly contains a lot of evidence — then this is potentially the beginning of a ground-breaking relationship between Nintendo and Microsoft, two of the “Big Three” console manufacturers in the industry. The leak surfaced this week, with an individual who reportedly has marketing ties to Smash Bros Ultimate developer Bandai Namco unwittingly sharing a Snapchat image of the game’s full roster. New characters featured in this artwork included Shadow the Hedgehog, Isaac from Golden Sun, and Rare’s platforming hero Banjo-Kazooie. The Banjo-Kazooie IP was acquired by Microsoft after it purchased Rare back in 2002. The franchise has laid relatively dormant over those years, save for 2008’s Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, and the appearance of … [Read more...] about Smash Bros ‘Leak’ Hints at Ground-Breaking Microsoft and Nintendo Partnership
Just like every year a new Super Smash Bros. is in development, speculations and rumors are in abundance – especially right before a large event like the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3). The latest Super Smash Bros. gossip is that the master of tactical espionage action himself, Solid Snake, will be returning to the fray for another round. While the source, Reddit user DasVergeben, has a hit or miss history with leaks, he is sometimes right. He correctly predicted the existence of SoulCalibur 6 and has released early information on a few Injustice 2 DLC characters as well. He has been regularly submitting Super Smash Bros. leaks from his various sources online for months now, with his most recent rumor being that Solid Snake will be back for the newest title on Switch.A couple weeks ago, he claimed to have heard that two long-time fan requests would be joining the roster. He says a credible source relayed that Ridley (Metroid) and … [Read more...] about Rumor: Super Smash Bros. Bringing Back Solid Snake
Although Nintendo fans had been hoping that last week’s Direct would confirm Super Smash Bros. for the Switch, the mic drop announcement trailer still felt like an exciting surprise. In addition to just being exciting to brawl on the go with the Switch, the trailer also got fan hopes up by suggesting that the new Super Smash Bros. won’t just be a port of the Wii U version from 2014. Early leaks and rumors about Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch all hinted that the title would be a port of the Wii U version with some new features and fighters. This would follow the same pattern we saw with the Mario Kart franchise and with Pokken Tournament. Despite that expectation, the intentionally vague announcement trailer (and some follow up research) offers some compelling evidence that the Switch game is actually a brand new entry in the franchise. Let’s start off with the title and logo. Super Smash Bros. was the revealed title, but it seems pretty unlikely that the game … [Read more...] about Is Super Smash Bros. On Switch a Port or a New Game?
Zelda, Mario, and Mario Kart have all made it to the Nintendo Switch in the form of new games and remasters; but there are still a few other iconic franchises still on the way. We know a new Metroid is in development, but news on either a remake or new version of Super Smash Bros. has been strangely missing. Until now, that is… Industry tipster Emily Rogers claims to have sources who indicate a Super Smash Bros. game will be released on the Nintendo Switch before the end of 2018. That would definitely be a pretty big surprise if it ends up being true. Perhaps an E3 or Nintendo Direct mic drop moment? The rumors claim that the game will be based on the most recent Wii U and 3DS version, but will also add new content and make some improvements to existing features. We’re definitely still in rumor territory at this point, but it should be noted that at least some of Rogers’ tips have proven to be true in the past. Most notably, the industry insider leaked full specs for … [Read more...] about Super Smash Bros. Game Coming to Switch This Year?
