Recently, it’s been speculated that Professor Layton might be planned as a new character in Super Smash Bros for 3DS/Wii U, based on an IMDB page listing his voice actor (Christopher Robin Miller). But now, it seems this has been proven as false, with said voice actor denying any involvement in the title.
Here’s a video from GameExplain about it, where they show that this is the case:
So does that rule out the character altogether? Well, not theoretically, given that A: even his voice actor might not know if he’s being added and B: someone else could provide the voice, but it does make the rumour much more unlikely, and prove that the IMDB listing has nothing to do with a Layton appearance in Super Smash Bros 4.
But what do you think? Did you want Professor Layton in Super Smash Bros?
