We’ve heard rumors recently from people who have connections at Nintendo, some of whom have leaked correct information in the past, that the next Smash Bros. DLC is coming soon. The character is apparently a “big deal,” “makes a lot of sense,” and is likely not related to the Smash ballot. It is apparently a newcomer, not a clone, not Shovel Knight or Shantae, and nobody would confirm whether it was male or female. These signs obviously all point to the Inklings from Splatoon, but the question remains: are these rumors worth it?

This is one of the subjects we discussed on
this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, and we think they might actually be worth their salt. Check out the discussion video above to find out why it could be legitimate and what it means for Smash if it’s true.

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
