wiiusmashbrosscrnc0404e3_530x298Super Smash Bros 4’s release date may have been unintentionally leaked on a retailer’s website listing. The website, Newegg.com, lists the Wii U date as December 31 2014 and the 3DS version of the game as being available on May 16 2014. SSB4 Wii U is $59.99 and SSB4 3DS is $39.99.

The characters confirmed for the game so far are: Mario, Luigi, Link, Samus, Kirby, Fox, Pikachu, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Pit, Olimar, Toon Link, Princess Peach, Sonic the Hedgehog, MegaMan, Wii Fit Trainer, and the Villager. Just yesterday, the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai unveiled another sneak peek of the upcoming game that shows off both Pikachu and MegaMan. The screenshot, from the 3DS version of the game, appears to show everyone’s favorite Pokemon, Pikachu, jumping onto MegaMan.

“Pic of the day. I’ve got this strange growth on my back lately—which should be impossible, since I’m a robot,” wrote Sakurai, captioning the picture on Miiverse. Sakurai also hinted at the possibility of a new Pokemon from X and Y coming to the game.

This time, he showed off a picture of Pokemon’s Pikachu standing alongside Pokemon X’s mascots cover character, Xerneas. “Pic of the day. We have absolutely nothing to announce today regarding Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. Really!” he said in what seems like a sarcastic manner. Pokemon has always been a big part of the Super Smash Bros franchise. Pikachu and Jigglypuff were in the first game, while those two and Pichu and Mewtwo were adding for Melee. In Super Smash Bros Brawl, Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Lucario, and Pokemon Trainer were all characters. Every game has had Pokemon-themed levels and items as well.
