Super Smash Bros 4 Rumors: Full Character Roster to be Revealed in August (+3DS, Wii U Release Date)

Every character in Super Smash Bros 4 will be revealed soon, according to the latest rumor.

An announcement by Japan’s CoroCoro magazine purportedly says that the full roster will be revealed in the magazine next month.

The magazine says that all of the characters and stages will be revealed by August 12. The Nintendo 3DS version of the game launches in Japan on September 13 and October 3 in North America and Europe. The Wii U version will be released sometime this winter.

So far, those working on the game have slowly revealed the characters, stages, moves, and other aspects of the game. The full character list would put to rest the rampant speculation regarding which characters will be on it and which will be left out.

The official list expanded this week with the announcement of four new characters, several of which surprised many fans.

Captain Falcon, who has been in every game so far, was not a surprise. But Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening was joined by two other Fire Emblem characters: Lucina, his daughter, and Robin.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai shared screenshots of Robin using a Levin sword, as well as her Arcfire attack.

He also showed Lucina and Marth together, and Robin and Captain Falcon.

“Along with Robin, Lucina joins the battle!! Her physical ablilites are identical to Marth’s–it must be in her D.N.A,” he said. “However, where Marth’s power is concentrated in the tip of the sword, Lucina’s attack strength is balanced throughout the weapon, which might make her easier to control. She’s also a little bit shorter than Marth.”

“With the Wii Fit Trainers, the male and female Robins, the Villagers, and Little Mac, varying their appearances and voices works just like selecting alternate color variations,” he added. “However, whenever there is even a small difference in abilities, that character gets an actual roster slot. That is why you can select Lucina individually.”
