Update: As pointed out by a reader, Chrom is actually the fourth character from the “Fire Emblem” series. The changes have been made to the original article.

The final playable character roster may have been leaked in regards to “Super Smash Bros 4” for Wii U and 3DS. According to a report from Gear Nuke on April 20, a potential screen of the character selection menu revealed that Nintendo is planning to announce ten more fighters in the near future. Most of the characters will be returning from the previous “Super Smash Bros” installments.

The lone newcomer is Chrom, the main character of “Fire Emblem Awakening” on the Nintendo 3DS. He would be the fourth character from the role-playing franchise to be made playable in the crossover fighting series along with Marth, who has been officially confirmed to be returning in “Super Smash Bros 4” for Wii U and 3DS. The other fighters are Roy, who was last seen in “Super Smash Bros Melee,” and Ike from “Super Smash Bros Brawl.”

The rest of the rumored leak features nine veterans. Captain Falcon, Falco, Ganondorf, Ice Climbers, Jigglypuff, Meta Knight, Mr. Game & Watch, Ness along with Wario could be returning in the upcoming title. In total, the final roster size appears to be 39 for to “Super Smash Bros 4” for Wii U and 3DS, which is the same amount as the previously-released “Super Smash Bros Brawl.”

Nintendo has remained relatively quiet on new character reveals after announcing a handful of new fighters earlier this month. During a special Nintendo Direct episode, the publisher confirmed that Greninja is going to be made playable while Charizard, Sheik and Zero Suit Samus can now be selected independently. Finally, Yoshi will be returning in the fourth main installment of the series as well. You can find an image of the green dinosaur from the official Facebook page of the crossover fighting series with the picture embedded to the top of this article.

“Super Smash Bros 4” won’t be coming out at the same time on the Wii U and 3DS as it will be arriving first for the handheld system in the summer. The console iteration won’t be ready until sometime during the winter season of this year. The two versions of the video game feature several visual differences along with providing exclusive set of stages. The core gameplay elements should remain the same, however. You can reserve the video game from Amazon in the following link: “Super Smash Bros 4.”
