Just a day before Nintendo is scheduled to reveal the final and official character list for Super Smash Bros. 3DS, one person with an early copy is livestreaming all the details and secrets.

A Twitch streamer by the name of "Hamayama" was playing the handheld edition live, walking players though the campaign and highlighting its character selection screens.

Through various streams, all of the 49 characters previously revealed back in August have been confirmed, including the dog from Duck Hunt as well as Dark Pit from Kid Icarus. In the image above you can see the full roster (minus the Mii Fighters)

Meanwhile, eagle-eyed Smash Bros fans watching the streams have noted a lack of copyright information regarding Konami properties - a strong suggestion, though not confirmation, that Solid Snake will be absent from the game.

This bleed of information comes one day prior to Nintendo's special "Live @ the Treehouse" video presentation, and our own livestream which goes live on September 12, where the company will show off the "final" version of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.

The game officially launches on October 3 across Europe and North America. Nintendo has yet to announce a release date for the Wii U version.

The full character line-up, with new characters in bold is published below. Beneath that is the list of leaked characters.
