The leaks were real: Duck Hunt dog and these others dudes are in Smash Bros. ⊟
Thanks to people copping early copies of the game in Japan and streaming their playthroughs, we now know that the Duck Hunt dog (maybe a.k.a. Mr. Peepers) is in the new Smash Bros. He even brings back characters from another NES Light Gun game, Wild Gunman, for his moves and final smash.
Other characters not yet formally announced but unlocked so far: Dr. Mario, Mr. Game & Watch, Falco, Wario, Dark Pit, and Ness. Ganondorf is in there, but I didn’t have room to fit him in the gallery. Thanks to William Zeppeli, thedmonroeshow, sonicbrawler182, and Joel for the GIFs.
