    Updates are at the bottom of this post


    Definitely worthy of its own thread. There have been many "leaks" in the past, but this one is incredibly well made if it's actually fake. It's getting a ton of attention. A guy (accidentally?) leaked the entire roster through the final character art through Snapchat. The info checks out with his LinkedIn information -- he could be a person with this kind of promotional material. Furthermore, making all of this art from scratch would be an immense amount of work for a fake, even moreso than the infamous Rayman "leak".

    Quoting the top info from the OT. Read from top to bottom~

    EDIT: THIS IMAGE IS A SCREENSHOT OF A SNAPCHAT VIDEO THAT HAS THEN BEEN ZOOMED IN. Obviously it's going to be blurry!

    The leak reveals the following characters:
    - Shadow
    - Banjo-Kazooie
    - Isaac
    - Ken
    - Mach Rider
    - Geno
    - Chorus Kids

    Shadow and Ken are likely to be echoes of Sonic and Ryu respectively.

    Why people find the story legitimate:

    --------

    UPDATE: The company that the accidental leaker worked for has been confirmed to be real and working with Bandai Namco.

    --------

    ANOTHER UPDATE:

    Also some more #teamreal stuff:

    -------------------

    A THIRD UPDATE: As you know from one of the quotes above, The Grinch has been used as a piece of evidence that this is legit. However, some users have commented that it's hard to see that the Grinch artwork really isn't the same art as what's already seen on the official movie poster, so two members have explained it more thoroughly:

    ------------------------

    UPDATE #4:
    The leaker no longer works for the company we thought he worked for...

    ...but he's now working at a similar nearby company, lol.

    We still in this ride.

    ----------------

    UPDATE NUMERO 5: Internet Detectives are going way too far, but this is some mild fuel for #teamreal

    -----------

    UPDATE NUMBER SAD: People are 50/50 on Liam, some are saying he's been legit this year while others are pointing out that he's been devastatingly wrong and full of misinformation in the past. He also stole information from a different tweeter yesterday and claimed it as coming from his own source. Furthermore, this could be either misinformation or a straight up lie by the leaker, but if what Liam is saying is true, then this is really fucked up that an innocent person got involved in this and I hope people won't send hateful messages to the person if this supposed leak turns out to be fake.

    If this is real. No one. Not even pessimist will ever believe a thing Sakurai saids.

    I don’t think it’s real honestly. Seem like it’s way too many characters.

    Cross post.

    All the nerds up in Era liked Smash leaks a lot
    But Sakurai, who lived just north of Era, did not

    I am already satisfied but this should let those who have been screaming for a decade to finally calm down and rest their souls.

    Hopefully KOS-MOS and Dante for DLC, as well as Sora.

    Mach Rider, Geno, Isaac and the Chorus Kids are all weak inclusions in my opinion. Banjo on the other hand, is huge. Echoes are fine.

    Banjo Kazooie is fantastic, but no Crash Bandicoot? I refuse to believe any leaks that don't include Crash!

    If that’s the final roster. Nothing in the last batch is really hype for me outside Banjo due to being MS and opening up Master Chief as DLC.

    I got Snake tho, so was never gonna complain about the roster after that.

    If this ends up being real then I'll be in cloud 9.

    Having Geno, Isaac and the Chorus kids would be amazing (especially the latter since I've wanted a rhythm heaven character for ages).
