Make sure to swallow this with a huge grain of salt, as this comes hot off the rumor mill. The following photo was found on 4Chan, from an unnamed individual’s Snapchat, that may have inadvertently leaked the remaining roster for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as artwork of a new Battlefield stage.
If this leak is to be believed, this would mean there are seven unannounced fighters coming to Ultimate. Those seven being Shadow (from the Sonic franchise), Banjo-Kazooie (of the eponymous series), Isaac (Golden Sun), Ken Masters (Street Fighter), Mach Rider (of an eponymous NES title), Geno (Super Mario RPG), and the Chorus Kids (Rhythm Heaven).
The internet immediately went to work in uncovering the mystery Snapchat. They found a name from the image that led to a LinkedIn account for an account manager of a French print company named “Les Ateliers Marina,” which makes cutouts and banners for media outlets to use for advertising. They have worked with companies like Bandai Namco in the past. This information does provide some credence to the photo but is by no means confirmation of any sort.
These characters would make great additions to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster, and several mentioned here have already been the subject of rumors in the past, especially Ken, Shadow, and Isaac. While these would all be great additions to Smash, there still lies one glaring oversight…
Kevin has been a fan of fighting games since he first walked up to a Marvel vs. Capcom cabinet at the tender age of 8 at the local arcade. (Kids ask your parents what an “arcade” is) He may not be very good, but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying them.
