The truth will be revealed in due time, but until then, consider the following…
As of late, there has been a lot of talk regarding the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster thanks to a number of leaks and rumors supposedly revealing its entire cast. Now, a known leaker has made statements contradicting some of these supposed leaks.
Over on the GameFAQs message boards, Vergeben has stated that the most recent round of leaks, known as the “Grinch leak” (due images of a folder containing promotional materials for the upcoming Grinch movie appearing alongside said leak) are false, based on their own sources. The specific bit of information they refute is that Isaac, from the Gameboy Advance RPG Golden Sun, will be a playable character in Smash Ultimate. Instead, according to their sources, Isaac will simply be an Assist Trophy.
Vergeben has shared a number of proposed leaks in the past that were later confirmed throughout the years, including reveals of certain games. This refuting of the “Grinch leak” gains more traction by the fact that Vergeben made these statements in support of Emily Rogers, another well-known insider and leaker in the Nintendo community – one who leaked the existence of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in fact.
This all being said, Nintendo will release their final Nintendo Direct focused on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. PT, which will likely put all of these rumors to rest.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases on December 7 on Nintendo Switch with the special edition console launching this Friday with a download code set to unlock on the game’s release.
