[UPDATE] And the streams keep coming. Now Twitch user Gema_Yue is streaming Super Smash Bros. 3DS and showing off unlockable characters. You can watch his stream in the player below.
The original story appears below.
Just a day before Nintendo is scheduled to reveal the final and official character list for Super Smash Bros. 3DS, one person with an early copy is livestreaming all the details and secrets.
A Twitch streamer by the name of “Hamayama” is playing the handheld edition live, walking players though the campaign and highlighting its character selection screens.
At the time of writing, Hamayama has unlocked 43 characters, two of which appear to be the dog from Duck Hunt as well as Dark Pit from Kid Icarus, as shown in the image above.
Both inclusions add further credence to what appeared to be a full Smash Bros 3DS Character Roster leak, which was published back in August but not verified. That leak also confirmed new characters to the roster such as Bowser Jr.
Meanwhile, eagle-eyed Smash Bros fans watching the stream have noted a lack of copyright information regarding Konami properties – a strong suggestion, though not confirmation, that Solid Snake will be absent from the game.
Other streamers have also confirmed characters such as Dr Mario, Wario, Ganondorf, Falco and Ness.
This bleed of information comes one day prior to Nintendo’s special “Live @ the Treehouse” video presentation, which goes live on September 12, where the company will show off the “final” version of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.
The game officially launches on October 3 across Europe and North America. Nintendo has yet to announce a release date for the Wii U version.
