Yes, Shulk who was in the Gematsu leak of SSB4 and was one of the fighters revealed in the leaked "final roster" is indeed in Smash Bros! Not only that, his profile picture MATCHES the mugshot on his character select screen icon! So does that mean the leak is real?!

For me... no.

Now hear me out. He along with Ganon and Junior were seen in actual gameplay footage (meaning Yoshi's Island from Brawl is in the 3DS version and the two villains are in as well!) so they have that BUT does that really make the leak true? Not really. We don't know what goes on in the offices in Nintendo of America. Who's to say the leaker leaked footage of those three but managed to hack into the game, insert (or replace) images of the unconfirmed fighters that were made to mess with fans (heck, there was a convincing Klonoa image for SSB4 in dA until it was revealed to be a fake). Nintendo could've blocked videos and sue him on that account: leaking images of a soon to be released game while giving them false information being an employee from Nintendo. I'm just saying so so don't try to convince me it's real cuz I'm adamant about that along with some of you on that subject. Either way, good job Nintendo for dealing with people like him/her and keep up working on your games and trying to prevent too much unnecessary spoilage cuz I know the game you're making won't disappoint me! :)

Now, let's talk about Shulk, the 12th newcomer who's not the type of character to appear in SSB according to Sakurai. He comes from Monolith Soft's Xenoblade Chronicles, a game I barely played but with the 3DS port on its way, I may try it out. At first I thought Shulk was another 3rd party fighter but I learned that Monolith Soft is a first party developer for Nintendo so I hope to see Shulk again for future installments since he's a Nintendo All-Star of the Wii era (His stage BTW is Gaur Plains)! At first, he looks like another swordsmen/weapon user but what makes him special is the Monado. His weapon not only hits foes from a distance due to his beam blade features but it has five different abilities.

JUMP- Higher jumps but at the cost of defense.
SPEED- Faster movement but at the cost of strength.
SHIELD- Higher defense but at the cost of movement.
BUSTER- Stronger attacks but at the cost of launching foes.
SMASH- Launch foes easily but at the costs of strength and defense when being launched.

So that's Shulk, a newcomer from a series that's getting more love in the future! And has a alternate look that reminds me of Ghosts n Goblins' Arthur without his armor. LOL

Are you pleased? Do you (still) believe the leak is real?  Well, we have less than 20 days until we'll know what's legit... Peace!

When are you going to make a Smash Bros. fangame project?
DnMStarsi Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student General Artist
Well I have plans to make my own Nintendo fighter but SSB-wise like my version of a SSB game, idk. Like many people, I have my choices but nowadays, it feels unbalanced/uncreative. For me, it would be more of SSB Cross b/c my picks are pretty much part Nintendo, part 3rd party. I may do all 3 Nintendo fighter fan projects to show my picks. However, I just started with college again and I got a new job so I'll be busy.

May I suggest adding deconfirmed characters like Iori Minase, Lloyd Irving, Mewtwo, and Chrom?
DnMStarsi Featured By Owner 5 days ago  Student General Artist
Mewtwo, probably.
Chrom, unsure.
Iori and Lloyd, uncertain. Although I do plan on making a dream roster for a Namco crossover fighter so in the future, probably expect these two.
