The Super Smash Bros. roster has ballooned out recently, as Pac-Man and Palutena were recently announced, along with 3 Mii fighters.

All said, Smash's roster currently stands at 35 characters, but there are multiple fighters yet to be announced, according to Nintendo.

"I've actually been leaning towards a couple of characters we haven't announced yet, but we're not going to talk about those," said Nintedo's Nate Bihldorff, while demoing the game at E3 2014.

"We've been behind closed doors a lot with these secret characters," he added.

Bihldorff has been working on Smash Bros. since the Melee and Brawl days, and he talks heavily about the changes made to some of the cast like Link, Bowser, Greninja and more.

You can find footage of Bihldorff's session after the break, and also we've grabbed images of the new character and stage select screens, along with the button config window.
