In today’s day and age, it is next to impossible to maintain a hundred percent secrecy in any large scale project.
There always shall be some or the other ‘insider’ who leaks out some aspect of the internal secrecy, thereby effectively spoiling months of precaution one might have taken.
In one such case of a large scale spoiler, a user who managed to get a pre-release edition of Super Smash Bros 3DS, as there is one user who has been live streaming all the character details and secrets about the game using twitch.
Nintendo is about to officially reveal the roster tomorrow, and this twitch user, “Hamayama”, has been acting as a major spoilsport for Nintendo, as he already spoiled the game before its launch.
A total of 43 characters have been unlocked by Hamayama so far, including the dog from duck hunt and dark pit from kid icarus. Some of the fans who were following the streaming session by hamayama have been sharp enough to notice that there is no copyright information regarding Konami, and hence this might mean that Solid Snake will be absent from this game.
Various other gamers have also come out with their streams, thereby bringing into the picture, the characters of Dr Mario, Wario, Ganondorf, Falco and Ness have been confirmed as well.
This, however is a sad happening of events for Nintendo, as they were intending to launch it tomorrow on a grand stage and show it off to the world. This streaming has been done in bad taste and we expect that there will be actions taken against this streamer.
The game is officially supposed to launch on the 3rd of October, which is less than a month away now, and the game will be released for the European and the American markets. However a date for the Wii U has not been announced yet.
