Hello, I am a former Namco-Bandai worker who was fired from the company about two years ago (moved to the US recently). I know a bit of information about the next Super Smash Brothers as two of my good friends back in Japan are working on it. I don't know too much, certainly not what they are showing at E3 (as that is locked up tight). I do know a few things however and I'm willing to share, provided no one tries to get me in trouble.

I know this sounds incredibly hard to believe, which is why I'm starting off on such a small forum and giving you guys some time to get to trust me before I start divulging my limited information. Ask me some questions, since I know it will be quickly assumed I'm lying.

This'll be good.

Okay, before I judge...

Why were you fired and how did you find this forum? I'm assuming you won't give your real name?

Embarrassing as it is, I had a severe porn addiction and ended up watching porn at work on more than one occasion. I got fired pretty quickly as I was easily replaceable. It was a terrible time in my life.

I decided I wanted to leak this information but from browsing GameFAQs I knew I'd rather start off somewhere small so I could slowly gain a following. I went looking for Nintendo fan forums. The first one I found was called Nintendo Fan Forum and it nearly gave my computer a trojan (Avast saved me). I spent a few hours looking and eventually I found someone on another forum (it was 4 am so I'm blanking on the name) mention this board. I came here and saw it had a relatively small Smash community so I figured I'd start here. If I start small, maybe the information will move farther away from my identity. I don't want to get in any trouble.

Okay, so you seem to understand how easy it is for us not to believe you. (No offense.). How exactly are you going to try & convince us you're telling the truth?

I can absolutely confirm everything OP is saying.

My Dad works for Nintendo, so they share information between each other.

I just contacted NST, and they say Sakurai told them all of Metroid Prime Hunters' characters will be playable in Smash 4. I'm so happy.

If you ARE who you claim to be, you just painted a giant red arrow on your head by revealing the reason you were fired.
If Namco-Bandai wanted to charge someone with breach of confidentiality, they just need to see how many people and who got fired recently for porn.

If you're real, I appreciate what you're trying to do, but you'd be putting yourself in major jeopardy by revealing anything that could incur legal consequences. You'd clearly be making the right choice to stop where you're at.

Otherwise, I've got a soap box. Throw your rumors in with the rest.

I can confirm these guys' confirmations. If you look out the window right now, you should see "KaikoEx is trustworthy" in the clouds.

Well, reveal something already instead of blabbering that you got fired.

I know for a fact I'm not the only one who was banned for porn 2 years ago, although I may be the only one who moved to America. Even then this isn't information I gathered myself, I'm getting it from further up the line.

Alright, people wanted to know what I know, and it isn't a whole lot.

From my legal department connection:

Roster is pretty much finalized with two third party deals still being negotiated. Roster decisions went on for too long in both Brawl and Melee.

Early on, they had a little fun employee poll on which new Nintendo characters they'd like to see. Top three were Ridley, Tingle, and Professor Layton (the whole legal team apparently LOVES Layton).

SEGA and Konami are obviously negotiated again to have Sonic and Snake back. Namco obviously is getting a character ("Three guesses on that one" he said).

Capcom is discussing to have a character added, but Megaman is off the table.

One of the possible third parties is "a big shocker" from "a more adult game".

No Square Enix, no Ubisoft.

From my friend who does models:

Working on a stage from Other M, says it's the room where you fight Ridley.

Worked on some items, new ones include a second laser gun with a different style of attack (he claims) and a wrench.

Knows someone who is modelling a K.K. Slider assist trophy (disappointed him because that's his favorite Nintendo character).

He doesn't do character models.

There's at least two new female characters (he won't tell me who).

Two characters are "on the chopping block" (again, won't tell me who).

Game will have over 40 characters.

Ganondorf is getting a new moveset.


~~~

That's all I know. Sorry I can't confirm more.

Really? That's too bad. I've heard it is difficult working in a Japanese company.
I know you probably can't answer much. How far along in development are the two games? I can't wait!
Which is your favorite character? I really like Link. Haha.
Anyway, thanks for answering our questions.

Tell me.....How does the game look? Is it a throwback to the Comic-booky style of the first game or is it detailed and fluid than Brawl?

No, it's BS Ridley can't be playable. If not Dark Samus, should.
