They will announce it with their official channels right when the magazine comes out just as they do with Pokemon. To people in the west who don't pay attention to magazine scans it will be just as if we got a pre launch info dump.

They don't specify.

Note the text doesn't say new, unknown, or unrevealed characters at all. So there's that.

I wonder how fully revealed it will be. With a staggered release, perhaps they might unlock part of the roster later on?

In terms of quantity, we’ve probably already reached the limit of what’s feasible. I think a change of direction may be what’s needed.”

Personally I'm glad that we'll possibly know everyone who's in. Saves a lot of us the dissapointment if someone we like didnt make it in.

By the time any fighting game releases the playable characters I say should be known before hand. Especially one trying to be at tournaments.

My take on the Japanese:

Super Smash Bros.
Super Smash Book

In a supplement, all characters and all stages from the anticipated 3DS game 'Super Smash Bros.' will be elaborately detailed.

Wait for the release with perfect preparedness!

Rough, but that's the general idea.

The characters are probably going to be spoiled for you before you are able to unlock them, unless you go on a totally ignore anything video game related for the next few months. You might as well find out about the characters while everyone else does.

To be fair, they don't intend for CoroCoro to leak.

All this means is that we'll know the characters by August 12th at the very latest.

At first I thought this just meant they'd reveal the starting roster, but maybe it is possible they'll pull a Mario Kart and just reveal everyone this time. I'd personally like them to keep some secrets until launch, though.

I always keep an eye out for CoroCoro for my site, so I'll add this onto the watch list next month.

Don't trust anyone saying that I have it and showed them things. People tried pulling that crap with Brawl.

Can you confirm this Joe?

It claiming "all characters will be revealed" is just a crappy stunt to generate attention for itself. If you're worried about spoilers, don't be, because they won't come from here.

Sakurai already said that they are almost out of trailers so we should be getting the last ones over the next few weeks.

Ah man. I really miss that sense of surprise and anticipation when that silhouette and "a challenger approaches" came up on screen in N64 Smash Bros (and Melee to a lesser extent) while I then wondered who the fuck Ness was.

I guess those days are gone and never coming back. I could probably go on a media blackout but it would probably be too difficult.

Hopefully multiple characters are revealed in each trailer, like the Fire Emblem one.
