The character comes from the “Animal Crossing” series. The sea turtle usually acts as a vehicle operator transporting players from one location to another. He often sings sea shanties during the process.

In “Super Smash Bros. 4,” he is seen leaning onto a cooler while Donkey Kong watches. Kapp'n appears to be part of a sea stage. As a result, he may not be playable in the sequel. You can check out a screenshot of the new character, as well as several other images from the sequel, in the slideshow to the left of this article. You can also find Masahiro Sakurai’s attempt to try to imitate the dialogue of Kapp'n below:

Yar, I wants to watch some o' that Smash action, too, ye great beast!

The aforesaid potential stage could only be available for the Nintendo 3DS version of “Super Smash Bros. 4” based on Nintendo’s previous comments about having separate levels on the console and handheld iterations.

The newest entry into the “Super Smash Bros.” series is set to come out sometime in 2014 for the Nintendo Wii U as well as the aforementioned Nintendo 3DS.
