Last week, a handful of images leaked that supposedly revealed a significant portion of the playable cast for Nintendo’s next installment of the Super Smash Bros. franchise. The characters featured in those pictures included returning fighters like Wario, Ganondorf, and Ness as well as newcomers Bowser Jr., Xenoblade Chronicles protagonist Shulk, and Duck Hunt’s game-retrieving (and often giggling) dog.
While there was little official word to back them up, the validity of these leaks may have just been proven thanks to a few new videos that surfaced online earlier this morning. The footage in question highlights short bits of gameplay for Bowser Jr., Shulk, and Ganondorf from the 3DS version of the game.
One interesting thing to note, however, is that none of the characters in question are being controlled by the player, though this may have been done so that recording didn’t take away from showing off their gameplay.
These are sure to be taken down very fast, so check them out as soon as possible!
At this point, these videos only confirm three of the characters revealed in the previous leaks, but it certainly does raise hope that the rest of the fighters in those images will also be playable in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. For now, we only need wait for Nintendo’s next official announcement.
