>This morning on eShop, Smash Bros. picture said "Download At Midnight on 10/03!"
>After today's update, it now says "Add It To Your Wish List Today!"
What does it mean, /v/?
SAMURAI IS TRYING TO DECEIVE US.
>your fucking face when as a punishment, a demo comes out for Smash, but each regular Smash counts as one use
every character currently announced is playable, meaning you won't be able to play as about 9 characters
>Sakurai is really late when posting tomorrows POTD
>Straight after the Direct, he posts it
>"Pic of the Day. Sorry for the lateness but after the latest Nintendo Direct, I figured I'd post something that we didn't get to mention - There is now a Demo of Smash Bros 3DS in the Nintendo eShop! It features all the same content as the E3 Demo and has 100 uses! Enjoy!"
Because it's a demo? If you need to play it more than that to decide whether or not you like it enough to buy it, you're retarded. If you're going to play it more than 30 times, they want you to buy it.
It means if you read the letters in a specific order it spells out the name of a purple space dragon
Do I really have to spoonfeed you something so
No, you just have to format the higher ones to FAT32
>Only go digital one select things
>Would prefer to have physical copy of game
>Smash is the kind of game I kind of need to have around at all times
>Urge to go digital rising
>Desire to own actual copy extremely high
always buy the physical, we can't let companies think it's ok to sell digital copies exclusively, especially not on handhelds/portables.
Remember the phone version of Rock Band.
>That feel when Dark Pit made it in over Hades, who could have taken Ganondorf's moveset / speed, and Ganondorf could have been given a new sword based moveset
Fuck you Sakurai, you could have done something really cool with the clone shit this time around.
>3DS demo comes out
In Japan and Europe only to punish America for spoiling it
Do people still complain about this?
I have downloaded dozens of demons on the 3ds and I have yet to run out of uses for a single one of them, even the ones that only have 10 uses.
I mean, it doesn't take 30 fucking uses of a demo to figure out if I like the game or not. Especially for fucking Smash Bros.
I meant mario kart 8
and wii u has so few users
Everybody was downloading their free game that came with mario kart and playing online at the servers and eshop were all fucked up
>right back at ya!
>Terrorists attack the US
>Middle Eastern "Right Back at Ya!" War ensues
Nigga what SD Card is that anyways
I only have 47.8k blocks left on my 3DS
Actual proof that the leak is real?
Videos can be faked. Shulk's models and animations look pretty shoddy. Bowser Jr doesn't look very convincing either.
Not to mention he thinks Ice Climbers will be removed after Sakurai commented about them earlier in the development process. The roster was decided when the game development started, so he already determined that Ice Climbers would be in the game.
>Wait for Smeagol's exploit to come out
>quickly patch the vulnerability/do things to unsoftmod softmodded 3DSes
>THEN release the demo
Shulk may have looked like a mashup of Link and Marth from the leaked videos but the animations on the clowncar are extremely well made and very convincing.
You can deny the leak if you'd like, but the chances are close to 100% that It's real.
I didn't want to believe, because no Lucas, I hope he is one of the final 5, I really do.
There's plenty of things unconvincing about the evidence. While he got a lot correct, a lot doesn't match up, especially the whole ESRB story and screenshots.
So many people were convinced of the Gematsu leaks, and they got all BTFO. To them, it was extremely convincing as well, to the point where they ignored any evidence to the contrary, and only talked about what little information was confirmed.
After all, how could anyone just GUESS Wii Fit Trainer?
I can understand not believing anything related to Shulk - that whole thing from Lucina to the stage was as copy pasted as you can get - but Bowser Jr. had unique animations that employed well animated extra not immediately present on his character model including a cannonball as well taking part in a battle that involved the new Smash 4 Bowser.
>Kirby Right Back At Ya 911

KIRBY KIRBY KIRBY HE'S THE STAR OF THE SHOW
KIRBY KIRBY KIRBY HE'S A NAME YOU SHOULD KNOW
inb4 some UI complaint
how do you guys love video games so much that you spend hours a day on this board and still not know anything about the development cycle of a major title?
Well some new character or veterans will probably be announced soon and if their appearance matches up with leak (ness for example) It's 100%.
Honestly don't care whether leak is real or not. The leak just made things more interesting.
Hint: Both leaks are real and come from rumors spreading during different parts of the development cycle. It's almost like, you know, things develop during development. Cut characters, cut spots in publications, etc.
Why would you do that?
The point of portability is portability, and It's not very portable if you're carrying around a bunch of games all the time.
In the case for the Wii U, I guess digital is fine since you can just hook up an external HDD to it now.
>The reason Dr. Mario and Dark Pit are in is because they were alt costumes that could easily be retooled into separate characters to fill the slots of characters they dropped during development so the character select screen stays full
>A similar thing happened with Lucina
Yeah but they aren't working on all characters in perfect unison. Some characters needed to be ready to be shown at E3 2013, hidden characters don't need to be finished until late in development. He mentioned Yoshi wasn't shown off earlier because they were still working on his new animations.
>Oh boy, this Kirby cartoon sure is great!
>WHAT?! It's some weebshit ANIME?!
>THIS SHOW IS RUINED!
And Sakurai said he was having trouble with them. Luma and Pikmin are nowhere near as complex as Nana is, it's entirely possible Sakurai dropped them when he realized he couldn't get them to work properly in 4-ice climbers matches.
Gematsu doesn't have video evidence lol

>Highest value is x10
The Miis in the image come directly from the same trailer. They don't have names where every screenshot has them with names. Plus, 1P, 2P, 3P and 4P are missing and the edges are different.
That's the Japanese release; it's relevant to bring up when we're taking about knowing the roster, but we're discussing when we can actually play the game first-hand, and most of us aren't Japanese.
Also, Polar Bear
What gets me about the roster is it feels like some kid from SmashBoards made it. Sakurai never gave a shit about the dog, but now he does. The dog wasn't even in any of the trophies in Smash. Bowser Jr is a bit over stauration.
Oh, and Dark Pit. See, every newcomer shown so far has the same pattern. Their faces are hidden until just before the splash. The only exception was WFT as her's was at the end. It went into gameplay. They also don't say character's names until they are revealed or just before. Palutena clearly mentioned Dark Pit by name but there was no splash. It would have also made more sense to show him there when they did the same for Lucina. No need for another trailer. Plus, it's confirmed that Palutena's Temple has a boss. Dark Pit would make the most sense there. Not to mention that, even in their own game, Pit and Dark Pit were recolors which doesn't work well in a game like Smash.
Would you guys be OK if Sakurai just came out and said "3DS and Ice Climbers didn't work out, but they're in the WiiU version."
I'd be OK with it. 3DS version will be used for making the wait for the WiiU version bearable, and for travel. If I mained IC I'd be upset, but I only play them every so often, so it's be OK.
True, but it could just be shear chance since it's the same arrow flipped with a different color. Only two have officially been shown where the leak had 4.
There are other inconsistencies with the images as well. I'll go over them if anyone wants.
Cowboy Bebop is but DBZ was made during a time where japanese were trying hard to mimic american cartoons so It's somewhat an anime but somewhat not, since it was watched by so many americans growing up.
We already saw Spectator mode in the E3 trailer.
Fairly certain we didn't see this though. Especially the two icons that are exactly the same except for the "new" marker in the leak.
Okay so I bet you think Avatar was an anime because some Japanese people worked on that too right? Fucking shitlord
Yeah, see, you can't prove it, fucking idiot. Fuck off
also why a banana
that's like a blindfold that increases your accuracy or a smelly diaper that increases your charisma
Gives me something to do while waiting for Awesomenauts to update.
>Says "Connecting to Internet" when in an online mode. In Brawl, you had to be online to even see the option for Spectator
>Stage result images in the leak have Global Smash Power. Confirmed on the official website that they don't. See: http://www.smashbros.com/us/3ds/gamemode/entry3.html
>Final Stage say "Final Results." for leak. When you complete a mode in Smash, it always says something like "Game Clear" Does this in Brawl and Melee
>In the same single player results screen, the image shows the cursor on Lyn's trophy but the text says "Steel Sword." Whoops. Also, Lyn's trophy looks like it's ripped from Brawl
>Actually, almost all the trophies look like they are ripped from Brawl. Krystal is the most obvious.
>Some trophies have the emblem on the back while others don't. Some have text and others don't. Also, see the image here. Notice how the emblem is very clear. It's not on the leak images
>The text is all wrong. Look at Brawl and Kid icarus Uprising and compare those trophy text to these. Where the former two are very factual, the others are all over the place. Phosphera's (spelling?" trophy makes up information.
>Smash Run image - One with Lucina aand the car. There are no powers which is odd. "News Flash" box has a weird white bar. You can't make out one of the enemies and the car looks like it's clipping
>Smash Run - Final Battle is cluttered as fuck. Look at the trailer and you'll see that "Final Battle" has different text and it fades out. Also, Ganondorf has blue and red fire.
>Multi man Smash - Nintendo released some screeens on Tuesday which showed that mode again. The Miis have what looks like an M on their back. It's not present in the leak images. Also, the sword fighter have white bands around their arms which aren't visible.
Anon, I am well aware of the absurdity of citing wikipedia to prove that wikipedia is viable. I was joking,
cuntwaffle.But you knew that already.
Now anon, what is the definition of an anime?
>The picture where Shulk and Mario fight Olimar - "Supersized" is spelled wrong. Check here: http://www.smashbros.com/us/3ds/gamemode/entry3.html. I checked it out since maybe they had changed it. Turns out, "Supersized" is the correct spelling.
>One of the images is "Mii FIghter." I is capitalized.
>Leak uses a lot of stock photos where the menus don't seem to other wise.
>Blurry and out of focus
>All the stages shown are from Brawl.
>Multi-Man again - The 3DS trailer shows a match where it's ticking down from 5 minutes. Based on the modes shown for Multiman there is no mode that would match this
>SAME image - There is a small design in the bottom right that extends across the bottom. It clips in the images (and is consistently like that).
>One of the leak videos uses an image that MasterLinkXXX confirmed he made himself
>Same footage, Victory Screen, Lucina doesn't move.
Hope these were clear enough.
Great job dude. There is of course a possibility that this is all accounted for by different builds. But there are just far too many inconsistencies and oddities for all of what was leaked to be taken at face value.
It's obviously gonna be Kabuki Kirby
If you're remotely serious, do try to educate yourself on what DBZ is. If you think it's less Japanese than Cowboy Bebop of all things, you haven't seen it lately. Face it: you like an anime.
Kirby was a cartoon produced within Japan and first aired for Japanese audiences. If that isn't anime, I don't know what is.
That's my thinking. There are probably more that I'm forgetting some.
The only thing concrete is this
If it is fake, perhaps it was shown in another magazine. At the very least, the colors are different. There is also a "!" that isn't in the other picture.
GIVE ME A FEW TO TAKE PICTURES AND UPLOAD IT TO AN IMGUR FOLDER
IT IS A PUBLIC DEMO
Damn I could use a 64gb I guess. I thought 64gb was max. 128 is crazy.
Pic related. 16gb Samsung UHS-1
>Smash Demo almost leaks on the Eshop
>Big Nintendo 3DS Direct tomorrow
Hold unto your ASSES
>There are people still this in denial after Bowser Jr and Shulk gameplay leaked
Jesus fucking Christ.
What colors? The blue icons? Most likely it faintly blows brighter and dimmer, or it could just be the lighting. The "!" means that it's a newly unlocked icon, if I recall correctly KIU did the same thing.
>Not to mention he thinks Ice Climbers will be removed after Sakurai commented about them earlier in the development process.
No he didn't, the interviewer added them as an example, Sakurai never mentioned them by name himself.
>The roster was decided when the game development started
But not finalized. See Lucina, Dark Pit, and Dr. Mario.
>Also, Lyn's trophy looks like it's ripped from Brawl
Having actually played the game and gotten her assist trophy at Best Buy, that is how she really looks in the 3DS version. Grasping at straws.
