Update: CoroCoro has clarified that the broadcast will discuss and show all previously revealed characters and stages.
Nintendo will release Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS later this year, and now a probable release date for each version has been leaked by multiple retailers. According to a report by KDramaStars from Aug. 6, the release date for Super Smash Bros. 4 for 3DS and Wii U will differ by a little more than a month in North America with supplementary retailer rumors suggesting that the Wii U version will come with a free Amiibo figure. Additionally, it has been confirmed that the full character roster and all the stages will be revealed in a couple of weeks.
Masahiro Sakurai along with Nintendo previously confirmed that Super Smash Bros. 4 would see release in 2014 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Currently, the Wii U version is slated as a Holiday 2014 release, with the 3DS version locked in for a release on Oct. 3 in North America. However, several retailers have started to advertise a potential release date for Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and it would position the game’s release date just before Black Friday in North America.
The two speculated release dates for Super Smash Bros. 4 are currently Tuesday, Nov. 25 or Friday, Nov. 21. To coincide with these release dates, a report by Gamer Headlines from earlier this month suggests that Super Smash Bros. 4 will release on Nov. 21 and those that purchase a physical copy of the game will receive a free Amiibo figure. A Nov. release date would make sense for Nintendo as the company commonly uses the month to launch its biggest holiday software – Super Mario 3D World was released in Nov. for Wii U.
It has been confirmed that Nintendo will reveal the official character roster and all the stages of Super Smash Bros. 4 later this month. According to a listing on CoroCoro.tv, a special Super Smash Bros. 4 broadcast will air on Aug. 12 and all the characters and stages of the title will be revealed. Thus far, 36 characters have been announced for the official character roster of Super Smash Bros. 4 for Wii U and 3DS.
We’ll have our hands-on impressions for both the Wii U and 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. 4 early next week. Stay tuned.
