I don't think so.

Nintendo will have another general Direct in the next few months, September is a good guess based on history. I expect that will include a character reveal.

Then there will most likely be a final Smash Direct before release to reveal the mystery stage that will include the final character reveals.

If they are holding back just one character, who would be big enough to get a solo reveal?

With the game acting like a museum of sorts, I find the likes of a Goku entering unbelievably unlikely.

Thanks Rex :wub: Still no mention of a single-player mode like the Subspace mode from the Wii version? :(

Seeing Kapp'n roll in was my big 'YES!' moment for some reason. Unbelievable amount of content overall and I think other publishers should take note.

Loved that :wub:

The Majora's Mask moon was brilliant too.

Launch arcs in Training mode is what made me almost shout out in hype...

While I wouldn’t suggest getting hopes up, only one one-player mode was revealed (Classic), and there’s a big blurred-out mode on the main screen. Plus: bosses. (We’ve seen Rathalos and Dracula so far.) I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that we’ll either see a story mode or something like Mêlée’s Adventure mode. Given the difficulties with trying to fit 70-odd characters into a plot, however, I reckon the latter’s more likely. :(

I'm not good enough and don't play competitively enough to really get involved in that kind of thing but the way that's been designed is absolutely beautiful.

There's a clearly a big single player mode missing but I wouldn't get too optimistic on what that will be after Smash 4's board game offering...

I've seen rumours regarding a Heroes and Villains mode which sounds interesting and they have been adding villains in...

Also can we all note that Luigi literally died?

Waluigi was missing from the Assist Trophy reel. That can't have been by accident...

Great to see K. Rool and Chrom. Don't know much about Castlevania but I loved the reveal trailer. Using Luigi in it was a stroke of genius.

Glad Fountain of Dreams and Brinstar Depths are back. Does anyone know if Melee's Rainbow Ride has been confirmed yet?

The morph mode for stage selection is an awesome idea. Going to morph the Donkey Kong arcade level into New Donk City Hall.

Agree with the others who say Capp'n and the Majora moon assist trophies are brilliant. Ditto for the greatest pokeball Pokémon.

Predictions:
Shadow will still be revealed as Echo Sonic. Simon getting an Echo proves it's still possible for third parties to get echoes.
Crash and/or Banjo to make the cut. Unfortunately Rayman will be left out again.

I'm 100% confident that Ken will be a Ryu echo.
