A Possible Way to Confirm/Deconfirm Video Leak

The recent video leak is probably a replay, which means we can test something!

Ok, so hear me out.

There are things seen in the leak that suggest that the video we are seeing is not live gameplay, but replay data saved onto the test copy. First, this explains how a leaker would be able to record this footage and play at the same time: he wasn't. A topic of interest for this leak is the fact that the Mii Fighters do not have names, they are simply labeled Mii Brawler and Mii Gunner. Normally, in live gameplay, this is impossible as "Mii Brawler" exceeds the character limit. But the cool thing is that Miis have default names when a replay of them is viewed. The lack of the dev menu in the bottom right corner (that was seen in the Ken leak) can also be explained by this. The match itself has a frozen timer, and is a stock match, as seen in the first image we were given. Also, you can just barely spy a Ken stock in one of the videos. With stocks, the match is able to be finished and a replay to be saved.

Now, the question is, if you were to save a replay of a match that had a timer that is frozen or changed during the match, would that be reflected in the replay? Or would the replay run the timer as normal?

And that's why I'm here. To ask this question. I figured someone might've tried making a mod that freezes the timer just to see how hard it would be. I'm not capable of doing this myself. But if someone could try recording this, it would go a long way towards proving or disproving this video leak!

I understand people here probably have better things to do. But I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask

Thanks for reading :)

And obviously, it'd make sense to wait until after the Terry Showcase this morning to see if the costumes drop, rendering this pointless, but chances are they won't be. There's not going to be a new fighter reveal. If the leak's real, the costumes will probably come out in 2020

    I think the "Mii Brawler" name tag was possible since all three players could simply just not have been using name tags. If you're not using a tag, your fighter's name will appear even outside of a replay.

    It's definitely Smash Ultimate (not WiiU). And it's definitely not normally possible to play a Mii Fighter without a nickname. Check my replies to each comment respectively.

    If it is a replay, maybe that is why the debug menu is not there.
