    Man when Smash Switch comes out it will be so nostalgic hearing the music they bring back from 3DS and Wii U. Wii U and 3DS will be a thing of the past.

    Why does everyone see Zelda? All I see is Ike, the arm in the silhouette is way too muscular, and they're so tall T_T Ike even stands all slouchy like that.

    Hi Nathaniel I’ve just seen something in the smash teaser in the background a tennis racket so maybe waluigi

  • Nevermind

    Pretty sure mario and luigi are in the middle with link in between them. Everyone thinks luigi is link's shield.

    Knowing about how the switch has improved drastically in graphics I feel characters are silhouettes because they gonna look much better and Nintendo are not giving way anymore clues

    I hope the smash community grows bigger as we uncover this mystery until the game releases.

  • GBA 049
    GBA 049 11 months ago

    I think everyone is overthinking this a bit too much. It's just the normal list of the roster of a couple characters that have already been in Smashbros. and are not newcomers. Hell, Nintendo doesn't give a shit about height differences anyway. I mean look at Pokémon.

    "Link" is clearly supposed to be pit... duh

  • Super-T-64 LEGENDS

    Hey gamexplain what would you think if nintendo made a Gameboy character for Super Smash? I got some ideas for the character and made a little moveset. Anyways here is the move set.
    1) SP CLAPPER= Gameboy will use a gameboy advance sp to shut the screen down on your opponent.
    2) Green Ray= Gameboy will shine his screen into your opponents face and 40% chance of stunning your opponent.
    3) Battery Saver= Basically a Shield.
    4) Virtual Beam= A red beam to charge up to wipe your opponent out. (Kind of like R.O.B's one move)
    5) Cart Shot= Really simple you shoot a cartridge out from the back and aim the cartridge at your opponent
    6) (Final Smash) Calling all boys= Gameboy Gathers all of his friends and they create a massive lazer that does damage and dims the screen but you must use motion controls to use it. (like the GB & SP)
    7) (Other final Smash) GB-Tron= All of the accessories in the gameboy family merge together to create a highly defensed and powerful game machine. (might remind you a little of ED-209 from robocop, but a lot different in shape)

    Why are you missing Luigi in between Link and Zelda?

  • Ankha: Ruiner of Jokes, Stater of the Obvious

    Look at the trailer again! The one that they think is Zelda is Shulk! You can see the Monado on his back!!!

    In the video what everyone thinks is Mario, I don't; because the silhouette is missing in the last part of the trailer. I think that Link took off his Hylian hood scattering it into the wind. I think that Mario is the Silhouette that everyone is placing as Ness.
    Also what everyone is thinking is Marth I see as Wii-Fit Trainer.
    Also what people think is DK's Thumb I see as Peach's parasol's lace trim.
    The main thing is I think all these characters are starting the new game's roster.

  • dat dere communist waddle dee

    Also I noticed that the kirby model is a tad more bigger than usual or it's just me

  • dat dere communist waddle dee

    And hopefully bandana dee is a unlockable or you have him from the start like megaman but this roster will be the biggest one yet

  • dat dere communist waddle dee

    Man they all seem pissed by that i mean yoshi and Kirby those faces looked pure angry.....damn

    What I think this could be is probably an anniversary game for smash bros, It could include all the smash bros games in one. Like the Master Chief collection or something.

  • Chris G

    Characters that are most likely NOT to return IMO: Roy, Ryu, Mewtwo, Shulk, Corrin, Duck Hunt, Cloud and Lucina. Some are obvious such as 3rd party characters, while others like Mewtwo, Shulk and Roy I could see being replaced by more relevant characters in their series, i.e. Decidueye, Rex, and a new FE rep. That said I am sure more will be added than cut and the overall experience will be improved.

    If you look at Bowser Jr., you’ll see that the black outline is actually Yoshi. So how did he get that?

  • Waffles
    Waffles Year ago

    From what I can see: Mario, Link, Zelda, Bowser, DK, Pit, Ness, Fox, Wario, Sheik, Samus, Peach, Pikachu, Captain Falcon, Marth, and Kirby.
    At least that confirms that Pit is returning to Smash 5, since his double-edged sword is a dead giveaway.

    Its the veteran cast just giving face, they always show the originals then the new vomers. All I care about is Pikachu, yoshi, kirby!!

  • AeroditeSonic Gaming

    I think Zeldas outline is Shulks becaise you can kinda see what seems to be the monado, but the position of the blade it self is what kinda throws this thought off

    You think links final smash will involve the other champions or botw Zelda if she won't get to be in this game

    In the trailer I thought Zelda was roy

    Why is it so hard to grasp that it could be the Zelda we've always seen in Smash? (maybe not specifically in that image, but still)

  • Shimmy Vermillion
    Shimmy Vermillion Year ago +8

    The question is
    1. Is ZeRo coming back... Yes
    2. Is Miiverse coming back?
    3. Is JoeKing making Sma5h videos again since they're making a new Smash
    4. Will Omni Make Smash Shorts again

  • TLS

    I think we're going to get a holiday 2018 release. It'll make more people want Switches (like what Mario Odyssey did) so they can play the new Smash game.

  • SuperSonicDylan

    I originally thought the thing in between Peach and DK's head was Daisy.

    I really hope they change Zelda’s outfit. It’s so fucking outdated.

  • miguel garcia

    I thought the Zelda silhouette was the swordsman guy with a blue armor from Fire Emblem series

  • DeclarinJam

    Bring back WOLF!

  • Krowphay
    Krowphay Year ago

    I'm pretty sure Link's proposed shield in the silhouette is actually Luigi's head, on a body that is mostly hidden due to the logo not reaching low enough. You can kind of make out the outer shape of a relaxed right arm between Link's legs. This raises the same concerns as Zelda in the video though, because Luigi is supposed to be the taller brother...
    As for the silhouette being proposed as Zelda, what if that one is actually Marth, and the one you think is Marth is really Shulk? Would it be too weird for a Smash 4 newcomer to appear here?

  • Mai
