I don't care if anyone believes me, but I've predicted every character so far except for Wii Fit Trainer. I knew Lucina or Robin would be in over Chrom, but not both.
That being said, King K. Rool will be a secret character, as well as Paper Mario. I'd give Isaac a 50% chance at this point.
>P-please keep clicking on my a-articles
>S-sakurai changes his m-mind, I swear

I never followed this faggot but seeing how he's getting blown the fuck out and giving shitty excuses is pretty hiliarious.
If anyone knows about pro wrestling, exact similar situation happened there. Some guy on leddit leaked every single match for every single PPV for a while up until Wrestlemania, then was given fake info in that leak for the most important WWE show and when he was wrong he went on a full-blown rant about how the person he got the info from was wrong and how he had been lied to and the WWE was now giving this person false info to "leak".
Sounds like a similar situation.
Yeah when you put it like that it does seem more plausible.
Also even if he's "real" he's been proven to be so unreliable why doe anything he says matter anymore? A wrong character being playable and two he didn't mention three with Rosalina.
That fucker was just guessing.
It was utter comedy gold when he got MitB almost all wrong. Him acting like his source was doing him wrong was a funny WM moment though.
>Thinking a bunch of old Japs give a shit about about some western journo
hey guys my dad works for nintendo
just like in mk8 you can download a mercedez, you will be able to download a character for smash bros, it will be chester cheetos
enjoy my leak dont tell reddit
When will people realize?
Leaks are carried out intentionally 99% of the time. They are a marketing strategy. They will have just enough information in them to be believable but they'll also have some misinformation to throw people off and build hype when people's expectations are shattered.
I can't get over how stupid a name Shulk is. Every time I read it I can only think of She Hulk.
Anyway, I hope Lucina is just an alt for Marth (something I wanted before Sakurai said that no characters would be alts, but still). Robin is okay, but I hope we can use the different customization options from FE:A so I can make MY avatar, not this "official" one.
And I'm a little surprised that Fire Emblem has so many reps, especially given they're all swords users, partially excluding Robin.
>never mentioned Rosalina
>vaguely said "X/Y rep"
>didn't even say anything about Lucina or Robin
>thought Chrom was playable
>implying he has any credibility anymore
Well at least he isn't trying to make excuses and acknowledges that his source has some explaining to do.
I'm glad the ride ended. As much as I fucking hate Lucina, Robin gets me hype and this leak being dead makes me more hype.
>8 for 11 is no easy task
Yeah but it is when you're supposedly "leaking" the info, not guessing. What a fucktard.
>"IT WAS ME ALL ALONG, 4CHAN."
Then we get Team Romano vs. Team /v/ at Survivor Series and a big pay off with Sakurai vs. Romano at WrestleMania.
And when Sakurai wins, he'll show off a trailer at WM showing Stone Cold Steve Austin, Undertaker, Ganondorf, Captain Falcon and Little Mac.
Nah, they're all pretty popular outside of /v/. My top 3 is Bandana Dee, Dixie Kong and Medusa. Everyone hates that too, of course. But the jokes on them, I know I'll be disappointed.
Honestly, I was starting to really like the leak because I just wanted Shulk. A lot. I didn't care for Chrom at all, and Chorus Boys... Well, they'd be alright I guess, but now that the leak is pretty much confirmed fake, I'm a little worried about Shulk.
Said "pokemon from xy" instead of "greninja" or "ninja frog" 6 months AFTER xy had a WORLD WIDE RELEASE.
Chrom being playable was not only WRONG, he missed on the Lucina Alt and fucking ROBIN.
Falcon himself beat Chrom to shit and made it so he only gets 3 seconds in a final smash
3 strikes, he's fucking OUT.
He might still have a shot. However the leak is officially BS (although guessing WFT does leave me speculating that he was leak some info but not ALL of it and Sakurai caught wind of it)
Choir Boys/Marshal however their chances are just as bad if not worst than Shulk meaning their existence means their were ATs and Sal's leaker sent some BS to throw him off
But Fuck all that, WHO HYPED THAT THE CAP IS BACK
>mfw those are my exact picks too
I like you anon.
I am disgusted at the people all over the net defending this stupid faggot. Did they want him to be right that badly. He was wrong. It's over. They should be happy that anything is possible.
I've been fucking saying he's been bullshitting us from the start. Every single thing he "predicted" was fucking obvious or a fan favorite choice apart from maybe WFT, and even that isn't too crazy to see someone guess considering the type of characters we've had over the years. He should have been debunked the moment Rosalina was announced.
>Fire Emblem gets two reps from the new game
>Never once mentioned in miiverse posts
>Not a boss character or stage hazard in either of the Kid Icarus stages
>Not an assist trophy or regular trophy
>mfw leakfags/shulkfags were so smug yesterday
>got completely btfo
If you really think about it, when smash was coming around you had maybe hundreds of people "leaking" the game with their "connections" and other than WFT I would say the guy took some very safe bets, and threw in WFT as a shock factor.
Its only natural that , out of the hundred "leakers" on of them will get lucky with their guesses.
He fucked up at the point where everyone though shulk would be in because of the xenoblade retweet, and he though it was another safe bet, but he slipped up.
People keep bringing up the possibility of a villain trailer and it always sounds so appealing. Ganondorf, Wolf, Ridley, King K. Rool and Hades in one trailer would be the coolest shit ever.
I actually still would like Shulk to make it in, but even if he is in, the gematsu shit is fucking fake and everyone should just accept it now. You can't miss 3 major characters and guess one that isn't even playable and still be considered legit. He was just making solid guesses and WFT one in particular gave him "credibility" because "N-NOBODY EVER PREDICTED HER???!??!".
the leaker got 8-11 its not like he had access to the whole list as stated there is a lot that gets kept secret from him working nat Namco bandi but one think he knows is that shulk is 100%
Is Kid Icarus big enough for 3 people. Is there hope for.
Is there hope for the People's Champ.
Why is anyone even trying to defend the "leaker" by saying he got characters mixed up?
Shouldn't the only reason you defend the "leak" be because you want to believe those characters are in? I mean, there aren't people that insecure about the chance that their beliefs were misplaced, are there?
despite the leaker getting BFTO, there was the live demo of smash run that showed the rhythem heaven enemies in it so it's pretty likely that theres a rep from that
shulk seems like an easy prediction too, but then so did chrom
>GEMATSU LEAKERS IN FULL DAMAGE CONTROL
>MORE BACKPEDALING THAN A BACKWARDS TOUR DE FRANCE
>STAY TUNED, MORE AT ELEVEN
>"I've e-mailed him about the lack of Shulk, as well as the whole Chrom being a Final Smash thing."
Sal, dude, stop. Just.. just fuckin' stop, man. Just stop. Admit that your leaker had access to E3 information at best.
Because Shulk, Chrom and Chorus Men weren't shown at E3 it's clear now they were filler horseshit. The guy didn't have access to outdated information. The guy probably didn't have access to much ANY information.
Gematsu Leak BTFO. Now we can have a Smash that isn't fuckin' awful. Thank God.
>Caring about reveals after Little Mac and Ike were already confirmed.
My guess is that there's this sort of myth that Nintendo never leaks anything that's not Pokemon, and so the idea that somebody finally got one up on Nintendo and managed to leak something means that Nintendo is somehow infallible, or some bullshit like that. These guys need to believe that Nintendo can be broken.
>G-guys! I don't know what happened. I j-just contacted the leaker who I definitely did not make up as a means to deflect blame if my calculated predictions garnered me a lot of public attention for being mostly correct but eventually were proven complete bullshit by a fluke deconfirmation near the end. E-Eight for Eleven ain't bad, though, r-right?! PLEASE LISTEN TO ME GUYS I DESPERATELY NEED THE PAGE VIEWS!
I'm proud to say I never believed it. Even yesterday I held fast despite everybody acting as if it was undeniable, and now my faith has been rewarded with leakfag tears. Delicious, precious tears.
Honestly, this is what it was.
The leaker worked for E3 staff, or worked with Nintendo at E3 so got an early peek at the characters. He got to see the Villager, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Mii, Palutena, and Wii Fit Trainer videos. That's all this whole thing was. Little Mac was a lucky guess.
either leaker is a fake or leaker got played
LIKE A DAMN FIDDLE!Sakurai probably fed false info to different groups to root out the leak. with the trailer made by the FE guys it would be easy to hide
Anon... he's not returning... Lucas is the Roy of this Smash... a one-off character that's a clone.
I personally don't think the leaker even exists. It's just a vessel for Sal to make his guesses with, and when he's proven to be wrong (like today) he can just pin the negativity on a nonexistent "leaker"
If it wasn't blatantly obvious when alt costumes were revealed and even more ludicrously obvious when alt move sets were revealed... why were you even remotely worried that Lucas would take the ax when he was a pretty popular character?
Oh right, people were actually that retarded and believed an uncredible "leak" from a source who basically was the grown up version of "my dad works for nintendo" kid.
>Lucas, a main character from a dead franchise with few fleshed out characters
>Roy, a character from an ongoing franchise known for LOTS OF FUCKING CHARACTERS
J-just let us have hope, anon
She's the next in the cycle.
Roy didn't return. Clone. Put in because of recent release.
Lucas won't return. Clone. Put in because of recent release.
Lucina won't return. Clone. Put in because of recent release.
face it, lucasfags
Exactly. Plus Sakurai did say that he didn't want to cut any characters if he could help it this time. Ivysaur, Squirtle and Snake are probably gone for various reasons but there's no real reason for any of the others from Brawl to go.
I can't wait until the game comes out and the roster is radically different from what he made lucky guesses on and his name is mud.
That fucker and his legion of retards ruined way too many Smash threads.
I just don't see why the fucking clones haven't been decloned yet. It'd be so goddamn easy to give toon link his own moveset from wind waker. Deku leave, skull hammer, etc. It's horseshit. And on top of that, adding even more straight-up clones like lucina? Goddamnit sakurai
This right here is exactly why Sal came up with an imaginary "anonymous leaker", so he could get off scott-free after his shit predictions were proven wrong.
I used to believe the leak was real, mostly for how accurate it was, but this trailer shows it was a fake leak and they were aware of it.
>m-muh last minute changes
This is terrible damage control. Nobody in their right mind would change a newcomer trailer HOURS before it is shown, considering they must have the pics and smash website ready to post.
Fuck yeah this, he hasn't been shown as an AT right?
A man can dream, if they aren't localizing Mother 3, and had already two Mother reps, might as well represent the only game that went on a worldwide release, and that has been released on the VC fair recently.
