RUMOR: Palutena Leaked as Playable in Super Smash Bros.

If this rumor is to be believed, Palutena from the Kid Icarus series is set to appear as a playable character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. As most rumors go, the two images were leaked online by an unknown source, and the credibility of the leak is left up to the readers and online community. Take a look at the two images below:

What do you think? Does this rumor hold any weight? Fans from NeoGAF have rigorously looked into the two images, noting some very interesting discoveries:

  • This model of Palutena is different from any other we have previously seen (Brawl, Uprising, AR Card).
  • The Mario is not from any previously released screen.
  • This shot of the Battlefield stage has not yet been seen from this exact angle.
  • Palutena’s belt features a Starman amulet from the Super Mario series. This specific amulet has not appeared in any previous model of Palutena, and it may be something Sakurai added for this game. Take a look at the screen below:

And to continue the discussion, GameXplain has released a detailed discussion on the rumor:
