Smash Bros. Fans Are Trolling The Hell Out Of Each Other Right Now

Illustration for article titled iSmash Bros./i Fans Are Trolling The Hell Out Of Each Other Right Now

Tomorrow is the final Nintendo Direct focusing entirely on Smash Bros. You know what that means, right? An avalanche of fake leaks! Hooray.


Every time there’s a new Nintendo Direct on the horizon, Smash Bros. fans go into a frenzy. Some people try to predict what’s coming next. Or, they will go out of their way to try to fool others into thinking some outlandish thing or other will get revealed during the Direct.

Amidst all of that lies and hype, Smash Bros. directs have actually gotten legitimately leaked. The only exception, I think, is Cloud. Often it takes a hot minute to suss out what’s what, though, as people pore through shitty screenshots, fake screengrabs, and and even videos purporting to show what’s coming next for Nintendo’s beloved party/fighting game.


It’s a clusterfuck. Right now, there are a few fake-ass Wolf “screenshots” floating around, as well as this elaborate character trailer created by “Nintenco.” According to this (fake) trailer, tomorrow we’ll all get to see the reveal of none other than...Ravio?


Honestly, as ridiculous as the situation is, I kind of love that people would go through all this trouble just to cause some chaos on the internet. Loveable bastards, the lot of you fake leakers. Don’t ever change.
