Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai posted up an image on his Miiverse this week that could reveal some kind of single player mode for the 3DS version of the game.
The screenshot posted up by Sakurai shows what appears to be an adventure mode with Mario and two platforms. There was some speculation that this kind of mode would be featured in the game in earlier reports, but Sakurai made it clear that nothing like Subspace Emissary, a side-scrolling mode last seen in Brawl would be a part of the two new Smash Bros titles.
Nintendo revealed a new character for Super Smash Bros 4 earlier this month confirming that King Dedede will return for the next installment of the series.
The addition of Dedede brings the total amount of characters to 21.
The game's director Masahiro Sakurai announced the news through his Miiverse page towards the end of last week in honor of the character's recent appearance in the latest Kirby game to be released in Japan.
"Pic of the day. Celebrating the launch of Kirby: Triple Deluxe in Japan, King Dedede joins the battle!" he said. "Check out his evocative facial expressions on the official web site."
King Dedede gives some interesting and comical facial expressions when pain is inflicted on him or when he is gearing up for an attack. The King is Kirby's main antagonist and has been a part of the Kirby series since its inception on the original NES.
The last character added to the lineup before King Dedede was Super Mario Galaxy's Rosalina.
Super Smash Bros 4 was rumored to be coming out in spring 2014, according to a Nintendo executive from Germany, but the company now claims that information was based on a misquote.
Nintendo's Bernd Fakesch held an interview with Neckar-chronik.de a few months back regarding upcoming releases for the company. Fakesch was quoted as saying the game would be arriving at that time.
