Could Super Smash Bros. Code be Hiding Even More DLC Hints?

Last week saw the wild and crazy rumors that Fire Emblem’s Roy and Capcom’s Ryu were potentially hidden in the data mines of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS (and thus Wii U as a given). To have these two joining recently released Mewtwo in the ranks has only been speculative, but now a goldmine of data mining has strongly suggested even more content in the works for Smash Bros. DLC.

The folks at Source Gaming took a deep look at the files contained inside the 3DS version, post-Mewtwo’s release on Wednesday to select Club Nintendo members. Through the efforts of 3DS modder shinyquagsire23, there were five additional tracks available, which line up with additional, unnanounced fighters and stages. These include:

snd_bgm_F27_AIR_MoriStage_3DS.nus3bank (Forest Stage from Kirby Air Ride)
snd_bgm_SF01_SF2_Ryu_3DS.nus3bank (Street Fighter II)
snd_bgm_T09_SDX_PupupuLand_3DS.nus3bank (Dream Land from Smash Bros. 64)
snd_bgm_Z80_F_Mewtwo_3DS.nus3bank (Victory Theme)
snd_bgm_Z81_F_Ryu_3DS.nus3bank (Victory Theme)
snd_bgm_Z82_F_Lucas_3DS.nus3bank (Victory Theme)
snd_bgm_Z83_F_Roy_3DS.nus3bank (Victory Theme)

These findings point to an additional five slots for fighters, with Lucas, Roy, and Ryu (potentially) occupying three of those slots. The final two may be used for the fan-voted fighters.

This DLC data talk is all very technical if you care to explore the post more deeply. Remember that these leftover files could mean nothing, or perhaps they mean everything. Things will become more clear come June’s release of Lucas to the roster. Let us know what you think of this Smash Bros. data, and if it’s the least bit plausible, in the comments.
