Sorry for yet another brawl post, but I just thought I'd recap last night/thismorning/today's events for anyone who missed it, we now have what appears to be the final roster, this will be completely spoiler free as far as the story goes.
Rumor has it (and it's just a rumor, so don't hold me to it) that the disk has been scanned and that this is the final roster, there's no new characters, so 34's the lot, the current confirmed characters are as followed:
Game and watch
Toon link (Wind waker)
So that's 14 new characters and 20 returning, resulting in a 34 character roster.
Now, thus far, through the night it's been debated back and forth if the '35 character' roster was true or not, and it has shaped up to be almost exactly right, baring wolf, who has not been shown or even hinted to in any shape or form (fox has been busy with his own troubles through the SSE so I don't see wolf being confirmed).
It seems like all the loos ends have been tied up, except just one:
Mewtwo is completely absent from this roster, rumors have been kicking around that lucario has replaced mewtwo, and for the most part, this seems to be true, however, there is just one image that shows some sign of promise for the pokemon:
This is the trophy room previously shown on the smashbros website, however, just to the left of the current trophy on the screen is a trophy that looks alot like mewtwo, now, it could be just a trophy, it could be UNLOCKING mewtwo, who knows?
If you don't care about spoilers to the story, check out my other blogpost here
for alot more info, over a hundred and fiftey images and bosses, and possibly another character that I wont post here as it's a massive spoiler to the story.
Hopefully I wont have to wait until summer for this game (being from the UK) if asked, I'll post images of each of the above characters to prove their in-game appearences, I'll try to make them as spoiler-free as possible.
