It's a bittersweet day for fans of Demon Lord Ghirahim, myself included. The most fabulous villain Link has ever fought will be included in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U, but not as a playable character. Today's Super Smash Bros. pic of the day on Miiverse confirms that the sparkly one will be an assist trophy. Oh well, at least he's playable in Hyrule Warriors!

For the first time ever, the Smash Bros. series will have two games in the same generation. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will be the first ever handheld Smash, letting you take the action on the go and including exclusive modes like Smash Run. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be the first ever HD entry in the series, and includes off-TV play and Amiibo support. We'll get our hands on the 3DS version on October 3, and the Wii U version launches later this holiday season. Which one are you more excited for? Vote in the poll and join the debate!

Earlier today we reported on a rumored Super Smash Bros. leak that revealed some not-yet-announced returning characters as well as some brand new characters. We're not quite sure whether this leak is legitimate or not, so we decided to call in the experts! The good folks over at GameXplain, the same team that gave us in-depth looks at Hyrule WarriorsMario Kart 8, and other games, teamed up with Gamnesia Editor-in-Chief and Smash fanatic Colin McIsaac to analyze all the supposedly leaked images up close. Is this the real deal? Hit the jump to catch the full analysis!

Mega Man creator and former Capcom head Keiji Inafune is devoting most of his time to working on Mighty No. 9 right now, but he is also lending a helping hand to the Inti Creates game Azure Striker Gunvolt. While this upcoming 3DS game is its own thing, you can definitely feel the Mega Man influence on it, and a new trailer featuring Keiji Inafune has been released. It's all in Japanese, of course, but you can still get a very good sense of the action via gameplay footage. The video also features a teaser for the upcoming retro-styled corssover game Mighty Gunvolt. Check it all out by clicking below!

As with all rumors, we'd advise you to take this with several spoonfuls of salt. This one comes out of NeoGAF, which is often used by industry insiders to leak news anonymously, but is also frequented by people just looking to get their fifteen minutes of fame with a fake leak. That said, we didn't see anything that immediately popped out as likely false, so we've decided to post this and let you guys be the judge. According to a series of leaked images and descriptions at NeoGAF, quite a few more characters will be appearing in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS. Check it out by clicking below.

The Japanese hardware and software sales numbers are in for the past week, and once again Yokai Watch 2 claims the top spot. The phenomenally popular 3DS game (which will be localized next year) has now been number one in Japan for six straight weeks, selling over 2.2 million units in that time. Hyrule Warriors debuted at number two with just under 70,000 sales in its first week. This boosted Wii U sales slightly, but Nintendo's home console still finished third behind 3DS and Vita, the latter of which received a sales boost itself from the launch of the Monster Hunter Frontier G Beginners Package. You can check out the full breakdown of sales after the jump.

In what looks to be one hell of a crossover game, the main characters from Gal*Gun, Mighty No. 9, and Azure Striker Gunvolt are all teaming up for a 3DS eShop title called Mighty Gunvolt. Beck, Gunvolt, and Eriko will all be playable in the game (which we can only assume is a 2D sidescrolling shooter) and the game has a retro theme. Development of Mighty Gunvolt will be handled by Inti Creates, the team that made the Mega Man Zero games. That's all we know for now, but we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information!

We're about a month and a half away now from the launch of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS on October 3, and the excitement is building! Today the file size for the game has been revealed, and if you plan to download it digitally, you'll want to make sure you have plenty of room on your memory card or buy a new one. The handheld Smash adventure takes up 2.1 GB of space, or around 17,300 blocks. Are you excited to take Smash on the go?

Every week we post the Japanese hardware and software sales charts, and for five weeks in a row now (it will likely be six tomorrow), a game called Yokai Watch 2 has dominated the number one spot with no competition. The original game in this series sold over 800,000 copies prior to the launch of it sequel, and has passed up one million in the last few weeks. The sequel has now already sold over two million copies in just one month, and all those numbers come from the Japanese market alone. That should change next year, as developer Level-5 intends to localize the game in other markets next year. Click below to read on!

Sakurai made a last-minute decision to add an originally-unplanned costume to the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games in the form of Samus's famous "Justin Bailey" outfit, often seen in Game Over screens and special endings to various Metroid games. This specific incarnation of the Justin Bailey suit comes from Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Zero Mission, with palette swaps colored blue and orange, respectively, for each title.

There are screenshots as well as a shockingly large amount of information past the jump, so head inside to get a look at how the Justin Bailey suit looks in Smash Bros., and learn plenty more!
