Who said Smash Bros 3DS doesnt have an intro vid? It does. I swear.

It's a How-to-Play vid. Thanks daddy Sakurai for always ensuring we know how to play instead of wasting our time with a CGI cutscene that we will skip every single time after we see it once anyways. <3

No intro? This is a disappointment. I'm still hyped as fuck, even if I've seen so much about the game, it looks FUN and addicting.

The lack of an intro is just bizarre. Even if they're saving the full intro, presumably featuring unlockable characters prominently, for the Wii U version; why not do something like in Brawl and stitch up a trailer out of pre-existing CG clips we've already seen? It'd be better than nothing.

Maybe it took up too much space on the card.

No way. I can't turn on 64 or Melee without letting the intro video play.
Brawl was a bit less, but still fantastic.

It does really feel like they are keeping stuff for the Wii U version, like Event Match or Adventure Mode.

Limited space on the cart, presumably. Same reason there is only 2 songs per stage.

Hats everywhere. Super Smash Fortress 2.

Any new streams in the past hour?

Edit: Kyne, I think this is more or less accurate, but there might be some alterations and/or additional conditions (e.g. no continues)

First three unlocks are Falco, Ness and Dark Pit.

10 Classics unlock DHD (or by Mii, not confirmed yet I guess, that is a possibility too)

DHD unlocks Mr. G&W

Link unlocks Ganondorf

Mario unlocks Dr. Mario

Marth unlocks Lucina (Ike doesn't) Note: That's how hamayama unlocked Lucina. Gema beat classic with Marth, but got game over. Might require no continues or both Ike and Marth.

Wario is unlocked, well, somehow

Bowser does not unlock Bowser Jr. Note: maybe there is some other condition like clearing with all Mario characters or something like that

Don't unlock anything: Ike, Samus, Lucario (I think?), Greninja, Bowser

Bonus: Wolf deconfirmed 100%

I guess I would have rather had more songs per stage than a CG intro in the 3DS version, if I think about it.

God, I wish the people who have the game would unlock shit faster. The official reveals will probably end up giving us the entire roster before they do.
Because I'm sure they're doing it just to bug you and they don't want to see all the content in their new game or anything.
If they knew how to keep unlocking I'm sure they would be.

That does seem plausible. SD card sizes may have also been a concern, with how much they're pushing the eshop on 3DS. It does make the game feel less complete as a result, though.

I wonder how much work it would have entailed to do a 64-style in-engine intro? It would have been an awesome throwback, but likely would have taken too much time.

Be prepared for the only character the ESRB leaker didn't have being Mii Fighters. I suggest preparing by drinking heavily alone.
