Additional Character and Stage Slots Have Been Discovered

In April 2015, Shiny Quaqsire originally shook the fanbase when discovered, at that time, unused audio files for Ryu, Roy and Lucas as well as stage music for Dreamland 64. Shortly after making the audio discoveries, Shiny Quaqsire found unused database entries for both characters and stages in the 3DS version.

With the 1.1.1 update, the number of unused character and stage “slots” has been increased. As of writing, there are three unused character slots, and three unused stage slots. There is some speculation that one of the stage slots may have been intended for a port of the recently released Pirate Ship stage, but those reports are not confirmed at this time.

All the entries to the character and stage databases have placeholder names. Furthermore, there is nothing in the data which indicates what these “slots” might be intended for, if anything at all. For additional, technical information on the discoveries, please refer to Wolfman_J’s article on Source Gaming.

Any ideas on what might end up in these slots? Let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to Smashboards for any updates on datamining efforts!

PushDustIn is excited to see who will be added to the roster. Tweet your predictions to him on Twitter!

IMO I feel like Wolf, Layton, and Shovel Knight are the three most likely characters I could see being added, with or without the ballot.

Wolf because Star Fox: Zero and the sheer demand for him.

Layton because he's the only character we have a legitimate piece of evidence to say he at least MIGHT have had lines recorded for this game by his English voice actor.

Shovel Knight because YCG are so snuggly in bed with Nintendo at this point that I can honestly see it happening. Aside from characters already in Smash, he's still the only non-Nintendo character with an official Amiibo, which I think means he has more going for him than pretty much any other third party besides Layton.

I personally don't take a joke on Twitter and an IMDB entry (which is about as credible and editable as Wikipedia) as evidence. But that's just me. :p

Anyway, I'm hoping for Inkling, Captain Toad, and Rayman. My most wanted vet is definitely the ICs, but they're not exactly possible. :p I highly doubt that only one of these slots is for the ballot.
I don't understand what you mean.
You're one of the lot of people who have been wondering. ;)

You don't know the full story then if you think I'm referring to his initial Twitter post on that day.

Hoping that two of those slots belong to Wolf and Snake, if not, one of them should go to just Wolf. I don't care which other characters will make the cut.

Hoping for Geno to be one of them or at least the last newcomer in smash 4.
Yup. I'm here for Geno too. He should at least be in Smash Flash 2 if he doesn't make it to Smash 4. Man Nintendo is going to milk smash 4 with dlc so hard to the point where a meta will be a long long time from now. "Returning characters" should just already be in the game and were probably already pre programmed.

Personally, I'm rooting for Grovyle. Not only is he a perfect fit for Smash, he shuts up two groups of people-- the PMD rep people and the Gen III rep people.

I'm also going to be surprised if Wolf ISN'T in. He's by and large the obvious choice.

This very interesting indeed. I wonder whom or what will fill these slots. Knowing Sakurai, I bet one of the characters will be someone totally unexpected.

Finally something to be excited about. Hopefully at least one of the characters is a newcomer and hopefully not a Pokémon or Fire Emblem character.

Those are totally Lyn, Wolf and Sylux.... I mean, how could it not be Lyn, Wolf and Sylux?
It is totally them.
