Super Smash Bros. Calamity To Be Announced At 2013 E3 (Rumor)

It's almost time for the 2013 E3. Guess what that means? Fun rumors and speculation!

An anonymous user over at 4chan — one of the largest imageboards in existence — posted some interesting information. Apparently, the new Super Smash Bros. installments for the Wii U and 3DS will be titled as Super Smash Bros. Calamity and Super Smash Bros. Calamity Portable, respectively.

Hold on, though. Some of this makes sense. Some of it.

The source goes on to provide specific details pertaining to what we can expect to see for these two new Smash titles.

anonymous source via 4chan said:

The Nintendo Direct trailer is exactly 1:35 long and is almost entirely CG. Seems like the opening of the game and definitely looks like a throwback to Melee's opening. The theme is entirely orchestrated but sounds original.

Characters seen in order of their appearance: Mario, Link, Pit, Kirby, Pikachu, Mewtwo (in his new X/Y form), DK, Captain Falcon, Fox, Samus, Peach, Zelda, Palutena, Olimar, Ness, Ice Climbers, Shulk, Marth, Tharja, Yoshi, Bowser, Sonic, Pac-Man. Newcomers: Mewtwo, Palutena, Shulk, Tharja, and Pac-Man.

If you're familiar with Super Smash Bros. Brawl, you know that Meta Knight is, by far, the most popular character in the game. He's largely unpredictable due to having four recovery moves, he can easily avoid being KO'd, and he's very quick. What negative qualities he does possess are quickly outweighed by all of his positive qualities. If this information does hold at least a few worthy grains of salt, I have two simple questions. Where is Meta Knight? Will he make a return?

Lastly, there's mention that Tharja — a Plegian Dark Mage from Fire Emblem Awakening — will make her debut appearance. I simply cannot find the logic in that, however.
  • What are your thoughts?
  • Does any of this seem legit? Even the character lineup?
  • Who else will we see?
Of course, this is just a rumor, but if you're a Smash Bros. fan, I'd love to hear what you have to say.

Tharja really!?!? NO!!! Chrom,Lucina,and Ike would be nice additions
And what of Animal Crossing characters, o great rumor-mill of speculation? Why are we denied mercilessly beating our beloved Nintendo characters with KK Slider's guitar? Have we done something wrong? Where exactly are we and when?

Alpaca characters could be popular as well, just sayin'. :P

Perhaps some of the new Nintendo IPs from the eShop will get themed levels to explore? Pushmo and/or Crashmo levels? Denpa Men levels? Dillon's Rolling Western levels? Question mark?
Tharja does not make much sense. I mean sure she was a cool character but by no means extremely popular or should I say popular enough to make the roster.

The name of the game does not mean too much to me. Smash Bros Calamity sounds good although the word calamity will always mean "Jenova" to me. This is because I am a huge Final Fantasy VII fan and "Jenova" was a calamity that fell from the sky.

If Pac-Man joins in I will be disappointed. I really dislike this characters 3D model. I do not even care for any 3D Pac-Man game to be honest. Including him would serve no purpose other than letting the world know that Namco-Bandai took part in the creation of this game.

Mate! We need Resettii, he's armed and already dangerous.

Anyway this was a fun read, as are all these mock Smash Bros. would-be rosters. This might have been one of the best hadn't he pushed in some bizarre choices. Tharja first up, unfortunately is way too minor a' character surely...
Spoiler
and Mewtwo X/Y seems a bit off, since this game has been in development longer* than X/Y but I could be wrong. Anyway the rest of the newcomers seem all right to me, not what I would of picked for my mock leak but hey-o.

What got me as well is I noticed Lucas was missing, which could be good in a sense as we might get a different character from the Mother/EB series which would be nice. Also apparently Olimar's back, ya dancer.

Yeah! That could work really well! He could tunnel to avoid attacks or something!
I don't believe you that Metaknight is popular.
I removed him from my character select in college and everyone REJOICED.
I hated how he gets special privileges in both Brawl and Air Ride.
I liked him in the cartoon, and as an NPC.

And I'll be surprised if sonic manages to guest star in 2 games and snake doesn't... just because of being a guest star.

As for items, I hope they make a better balance (Melee has the best set) and I hope they bring back the barrel cannon.
Once again megaman gets left out
Yea poor mega man... those DO seem to be kinda randomly selected characters.. I usually try not to get too wrapped up in rumors but I do hope the new smash bros. Game gets a decent amount of spotlight in E3!
Tharja? uum.. Chrom - is the better choice. [or maybe.. Kellam :D]
