Over the past few weeks some people seem to have obtained some info on an upcoming character.
Some of the hints dropped by those people in particular are:
- First party character
- Not related to the ballot
- "Has a Wii U game"
- Will be a newcomer
- "9/10 in the hype scale"
We can round down to a few select characters. But I think the character in particular will certainly be Inklings.
My reason for this is that not only was Splatoon a big hit, having outsold Smash Bros. Wii U in Japan, and selling over 1 million copies worldwide, but also there is a major update coming up next week for Splatoon. However, only weapon balances and some stage fixes have been detailed.
I think they will use the Inklings reveal as a way to promote Splatoon and the coming update, which will almost likely include other things that have not been shown, such as playable Octolings (which have also been hinted at for Splatoon).
But there are also other characters that fit this criteria. We got Wonder Red, Dixie Kong, Captain Toad; characters from WarioWare, Pikmin, Xenoblade X,
, and more that I'm probably missing, but Inklings are probably the biggest of the bunch.
Or this could just be some major elaborate troll. Who knows? We are all hype deprived.
