Nintendo reveals secret characters for Super Smash Bros Wii U

Three days in since Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS launched, and Nintendo has already published a gallery of photos with three of the alleged 11 secret characters to be featured in the next Wii U version of the game. Super Smash Bros fans were able to get an early peek of many more secret characters from the 3DS version, thanks to some previously leaked snaps gone viral about a month ago. Now that the game is live on 3DS, Nintendo thought of giving fans three of the secret names to appear in Smash Bros Wii U: Ness, from the EarthBound series, Falco of the Star Fox series, and Wario of the Mario franchise.

Featured in the previous part, Super Smash Bros Brawl, these three well known Nintendo stars will make their way back to the glorious Super Smash Bros Wii U version. Many fans will recognize Ness as one of the original secret characters of the classic Nintendo 64 title. Take a look at some pics with Ness, Falco, and Wario:

As many 3DS characters were shown via leaked images or videos prior to the game’s release, these official spoilers are seen for the first time in the beautiful HD format provided by the Wii U console. A series of eight additional Super Smash Bros for Wii U characters have been uncovered by devoted fans of the franchise, but Nintendo has not officially confirmed them just yet. The characters in question are as follow: Gannondorf, Duck Hunt Dog, Mr. Game and Watch, Bowser Jr., Black Pit, Jigglypuff, Dr. Mario, and R.O.B. Out of the 11 secret characters, three of them are new, while the rest are returning from the previous Smash Bros title.

The release date for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros has not yet been revealed, but the game is believed to land sometime around this November. All these three new characters are featured in the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros, which is already scoring high in reviews performed by renowned online publications.
