As of recent we have had several news leaks and photo leaks from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Yesterday’s Pic of the day was surprising at the least. Masahiro Sakuri had released an image of a CG hand holding a Nintendo Zapper, ya know, the Duck Hunt gun. What was even more surprising was the fact that IT WAS A SHOT OF A CHARACTER REVEAL SCENE FROM SUPER SMASH BROS! Now many have come to speculate who this mysterious hand may belong to? Or who is Diddy Kong fighting in the TV? They’re most likely the same person, considering Nintendo doesn’t reveal to much about their games as is. But what I personally am asking is will this be an exclusive to the Wii U version or an add on for both platforms? The new Smash Bros. already has various differences such as maps and mini games like Smash Run being a 3DS exclusive, so the chances of this is likely.
Now as for speculations towards the new unique character, few can be made off of the image. A common idea is that it’s Ridley from the Metroid series. That’s a great idea, but I have an idea as to whom it may, or rather whom HE may be. If we look back a few months ago to April, specifically the April first, we can recall pranksters trying to announce Nester as a new Smash character. For those who don’t know, Nester was essentially the mascot of Nintendo Power, featuring in several comics spanning the magazine’s lifetime. I believe that they weren’t far off, or possibly Nintendo took from their idea. It all makes sense. From the blurred, yet present color schemes of the TV character, to the hand holding the NES Zapper. His moves could have their ties to his comics or be something like Kirby, but without having to steal them. But I mean, its just a theory (enters MatPat).
