The rest of the "Super Smash Bros. 4" for Wii U and 3DS roster reveals may have been leaked. According to a report from VG247 on Aug. 26, an individual responsible for submitting the video game to the ESRB apparently posted some images and videos. Nintendo may have unintentionally confirmed the leak by requesting the removals the videos that were posted on YouTube.

The leak confirmed a few new veterans. Mr. Game and Watch, who was previously teased when Nintendo revealed that Pac-Man was being added to the upcoming video game, appeared in the images and videos. The other returning characters include Dr. Mario, Ganondorf, R.O.B and Wario.

The rest of the remaining reveals are new characters. One of which was Dark Pit, who was also previously teased by Nintendo. The other notable newcomers are Bowser Jr., Shulk from "Xenoblade" as well as the unnamed dog from the classic "Duck Hunt" video game. For Bowser Jr., players will be piloting a floating plant-like vehicle.

When including those who were already announced, the potential final "Super Smash Bros. 4" for Wii U and 3DS roster may have 48 characters. Nintendo could also add more through DLC although the company has not yet revealed any expansion plans for the crossover fighting game. Inevitably, some fans could end up being upset with some characters that were omitted from the list. A large portion community wanted the return of Mewtwo while a few others also wanted Geno from "Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars."

Nintendo originally planned to reveal the rest of the final "Super Smash Bros. 4" for Wii U and 3DS roster later this month with the latest issue of the Coro Coro magazine. The 3DS will then come out on Oct. 3 while the Wii U version is expected to launch later this holiday season.
