According to a supposedly anonymous source who’s contacted Zelda Informer, the next Smash Bros. game will be known as Smash Bros. Memories. Then, tying in with this name is the general concept that the game will feature many older, retro characters, including: Donkey Kong Jr., Ridley, Pac-Man, Takamaru, Mach Rider, Dig-Dug, and Stanley the Bug Man.
But, as with most anonymous sources, this information is bogus. Aside from there being little chance that Sakurai and the rest of his team have figured out fairly minor details like the title of the game (seriously, that’s something the marketing department does way down the line), the source also says the game will be released at the end of 2013. But no. That will not be happening. It’s too soon.
The game started development in the last six months. How could it possibly be started, completed, then released in less than two years? Sakurai has said to “have patience”, and that’s what we need. Patience. It’s not going to appear under any Christmas trees before the end of 2013.
