Hey, guys.

Funny that this page is talking about a new e-mail, because that's exactly why I'm here. Received one last night, but missed it in the mix of all this crazy E3 coverae.

But there's not much new about it, so I didn't think it was worth posting on the site.

I'll leave what it says here, though, in case you guys can use it in any way.

Basically, I was told that:

- Last E3 before game's launch (obviously)
- Participating characters: Pac-Man, Mii Fighter, Goddess Palutena, Shulk, Chrom, Chorus Men (none of these are new, obv, so I take he means these are the participating characters for E3?)
- There has been internal debate about keeping Lucas versus Ness, apparently Lucas is likely to get the cut
- Nintendo is planning post-launch character DLC, source doesn't like this as he thinks it's greedy

And that's it. This E3 should make or break whether this guy's the real deal. Let's hope for the best! =)

Interesting. No new characters?

And this is from 4chan? I really doubt it. This doesn't give us anything 'new', and I HIGHLY doubt that they're still debating on cutting Lucas or not. The roster is DONE by this point.

I'd imagine 'has been' means in the past, although it's a really weird way of wording it.

Do some reading. 4Chan was stating baseless stuff about Isaac and Bandanna Dee/Waddle Dee. Obviously, now we know this isn't the case.

Well darn. My Lucas hope just went to crap. :(
My Lucas hope shot through the roof as I tend to believe the opposite of what this leaker asserts; it is even more apparent that it is fake as he could not come up with another reasonable leak despite (in my opinion) obvious characters that are about to be revealed today; for instance, Ridley.

For the guy's protection, I'd rather not share a copy+paste of the e-mail. I hope you can understand. =)
What protection could the guy possibly need? Game probably drops in a month or two anyway. If he hadn't been thrown out on his ass after the first 'leak' causing enormous damage, he's in the clear.

Sorta wish I hadn't heard that last part, haha... Always hurts when the one character you've been defending for a year pretty much gets a nail in the coffin.

Do you think he means characters participating in the game, period?

The original phrasing would give us too much clarity, so why illuminate a non-existent email (yes, I am insinuating such) that could EASILY be altered to "protect" someone who is likely already anonymous? I already answered that question, I am just being dramatic.

lol how can that even be? xD
As in, those listed newcomers are all the newcomers we have left. That would be a pretty nightmarish scenario, but the Smash fanbase is quite familiar with nightmare scenario final rosters by now, so it's not that far-fetched.

If he is cut, maybe he'll be one of the DLC characters? Better than not being in the roster at all, right?

Feeling very insecure right now. :c:crying::cry:

Let's take to account that not all of Sal's 6 were fully announced last E3, so if we get other characters announced that aren't on the list such as Ridley and K. Rool, then the others till have hope. But if a majority of this list is put on, specifically Marshal, there's no way we can disbelieve it anymore

Also, poor Lucas :(. But since he and Ness are the same height, perhaps a voice, name, and alt for him?

Can you go in-depth about Lucas? I mean, yes, I'm a bit of a Lucas fanboy, but a cut in general is a pretty big deal...
I am sure that Lucas is more safe than Ness to be perfectly honest, sure Ness has the golden parachute (which is irrelevant as this leak is not necessarily plausible, something that everyone will come to understand in half an hour. However, based on precedent, that is essentially antithetical to what we have seen. As far as I am aware, Lucas always had the edge.

As far as I'm aware, this leak was dead as soon as he said they still were trying to decide on a character.

It's fine, lol. I won't 100 percent believe it until it happens either. The only reason it's worth talking about though is because it has a solid foundation.

Yeah, I think it's safe to say today will make or break the leak. The bit about Lucas sounds especially fishy, but everything else isn't too far out of line.
