Is this really what it's really going to be called for the Wii U and 3DS? No subtitle? Kind of confusing.

Right then, let's see the characters so far.
Returning Characters so far (from Brawl) in bold, italics for all those in Brawl that haven't been mentioned yet:
Mario
Luigi
Donkey Kong
Link
Samus
Kirby
Fox
Pikachu
Bowser
Pit
Toon Link
Peach
Olimar
Marth
Sonic
Zelda
King Dedede
Lucario
Diddy Kong
Zero Suit Samus
Sheik
Yoshi
Charizard
Ike
Mr. Game & Watch

Wario
Ganondorf
Ice Climbers
R.O.B.
Meta Knight
Falco
Wolf
Captain Falcon
Pokemon Trainer
Jigglypuff
Ness
Lucas
Solid Snake

New Characters
Mega Man
Wii Fit Trainer
Villager (Animal Crossing)
Rosalina
Little Mac
Greninja
Mii Fighters
Palutena
Pac-Man

Probably one of the biggest releases the Wii U will ever see and probably the title that will move most units of the system by itself. I am hopefully for a far more expanded online system this go around, or at the very least one that isn't quite so laggy unless everyone has their Wii U's dmz'd.

I will keep the main post up to date when they annouce more characters or any other interesting tidbits as we lead up to the release by the end of 2014.

One of the major "leaks" was the following:
  • Rosalina is the only Mario newcomer.
  • Waluigi and Toad were at once considered, but Waluigi remains an Assist Trophy, and Toad a move for Peach.
  • Bowser Junior, Paper Mario and Daisy were never considered. Bowser Junior was planned to be an Assist Trophy, but was scrapped.
  • Fawful is a new Mario Assist Trophy. He acts like Mr. Resetti, but will attack opponents at random.
  • Diddy Kong will be the next revealed veteran, to coincide with Tropical Freeze’s release date.
  • Diddy is paired with Dixie Kong as a tag-team, similar to Zelda and Sheik. Dixie has a separate moveset from Diddy, but it’s still being worked on.
  • King K. Rool is a newcomer, the heaviest character on the roster. He is powerful and can KO light characters with 2 good Smash Attacks. His final smash has him use the blunderbuss and fire cannonballs from the top of the screen while they fly in from the sides as well.
  • Gangplank Galleon is a stage.
  • There is a new Zelda character, although it’s kept a secret so far. The names heard most often are Tingle and Ghirahim.
  • Ganondorf will be buffed, although he still retains some of C. Falcon’s moves. He can equip a sword using his Down Special.
  • Chrom is a Fire Emblem necomer. He wields the Falchion, and does not replace Ike.
  • Chrom is expected to be revealed to celebrate the anniversary of the first Fire Emblem.
  • Lyn’s Assist Trophy from Brawl has been scrapped.
  • King Gangrel and Aversa are the new Fire Emblem Assist Trophy. Gangrel runs around slicing with his sword, while Aversa flies above using Aversa’s Night. They are the “unexpected” Assist Trophy.
  • No newcomers for Yoshi or Wario.
  • Wario’s overalls are now his default attire.
  • The Kat & Ana Assist Trophy has been scrapped.
  • Ashley from WarioWare is a new Assist Trophy.
  • Ridley is a newcomer, and is scaled down a bit. It was a major feat on the development team.
  • No new Star Fox characters.
  • Falco is farther away from being a Fox clone.
  • Wolf is no longer a semi-clone.
  • Villager has a female costume.
  • Mr. Resetti returns as an Assist Trophy.
  • Tom Nook is a new Assist Trophy. He apparently drops bells across the stage, which causes opponents to trip. (Due to Sakurai saying tripping is removed, it’s unknown if forced tripping, like this and Diddy’s bananas will return, or if only accidental tripping is removed.)
  • Palutena is a newcomer, with her moves based directly off Uprising.
  • Magnus is a new Assist Trophy, and acts similarly to Little Mac in Brawl.
  • All Pokemon veterans from Brawl return.
  • Mewtwo returns.
  • Mewtwo and Lucario have very different movesets.
  • No new Kirby characters.
  • Meta Knight will be revealed sometime in the summer of 2014.
  • No changes made to the EarthBound series.
  • All misc. characters return (Mr. Game & Watch, R.O.B., Ice Climbers)
  • Little Mac is a newcomer. He has the look from the Punch-Out!! reboot for the Wii.
  • The Male Wii Fit Trainer is indeed an alt. for Wii Fit Trainer.
  • Wii Fit Trainer has a butt attack. It is replaced by a headbutt for the male costume.
  • King Hippo is an Assist Trophy.
  • The Ghosts from Luigi’s Mansion are an Assist Trophy.
  • Snake returns.
  • Pac-Man will be the final newcomer. He is a secret character.

Interested to see if these are true.

More than likely, but it's fun to wonder if it could be true.

Fun but not fun. I can't wait to actually see what happens. Like Ridley would be cool

Lucario announced today. Strange, figured it would be a given if characters were gonna be cut, he'd be one of them. Maybe, they are gonna have all the brawl characters?

I really want to play that Ground Zeroes, but I kinda also want to play it on PS4, but I don't want to buy a PS4 until it gets a price drop, and I also don't want to wait 2 years between Ground Zeroes and Phantom Pain.

HMM.

So far that "leak" hasn't been proven wrong, I don't believe?

Little Mac I believe might be my new main.

Diddy Kong is the newest confirmed returning character.

God, I hated him in Brawl.

Also, does this finally mean the "leak" is debunked?
  • Diddy Kong will be the next revealed veteran, to coincide with Tropical Freeze’s release date.
  • Diddy is paired with Dixie Kong as a tag-team, similar to Zelda and Sheik. Dixie has a separate moveset from Diddy, but it’s still being worked on.
