    According to the official site there will be a new character intro video announced tomorrow (14/7) and they also have a youtube video stream with a countdown for it.

    Any guesses on who will be announced?

    Most rumors I've saw (and that Xenoblade dev re-tweeted the announcement) would be Shulk.

    It doesn't seem totally far-fetched to be honest, and at least it would be a sword user that isn't based on anything medieval.

    Shulk does seem like a safe bet. Of courses chances are it'll be something ridiculous (Chorus Kids rumor lol) but I wouldn't be surprised at all if it does turn out to be Shulk. Although Isaac promoted from being an assist trophy would be pretty sweet too.

    The message makes it seem more like it's a general Youtube thing and not just Nintendo. Also, you can just check the official website, it'll probably be uploaded a few minutes after. These intro videos are never long anyway.

    I, too, can edit javascript in such a way that it doesn't even make sense anymore.

    Goku... I wish.

    I just hope it's not some stupid Metallic or Baby form of a character that's on the roster like they've done in MK8.

    In MK8 the character hardly matters other than weight. Here everyone has a unique moveset and such. If anything metal forms may be skins - and that's only if the green ! box item doesn't make it in. The hitbox of baby forms would probably be too different to even consider adding them as skins.

    Falcon wasn't announced prior to the release of Brawl or Melee, so...

    Was playing Rayman Legends (with the Mario costume) and at times he really felt like he belonged in Smash Bros, but unfortunately the guest characters may have been already all filled in.

    There definitely needs to be some Xenoblade representation in SSB. Shulk is probably who it would have to be as the main protagonist, but I could see someone like Melia having the potential for a more interesting play style than another sword-wielder.

    Im waiting for the site to be updated but if Crom is a stand alone character along with Lucina then we have too many FE characters in the game and WAY too many "sword" users. If Crom/Lucina are the male/female versions much like Robin then ill be fine with it. But with Ike and Marth already in the game we now have 4 characters are going to play pretty much the same way. At least robin is a magic user, the other 4 are sword users, they better be drastically different.
