The character was first leaked back in May by Xbox TV, but Microsoft said it was authorized to do so by Bandai Namco. 

Now, Nintendo UK has apparently leaked Janemba again, this time adding speculation that the release is coming very soon.

Nintendo UK’s description read, “Janemba, the evil demon, joins the battle from the underworld”. This implies the announcement was intended for an actual character release and not just an announcement of a release date.

Along with Janemba, there will be five alternate colors for his outfit, a new lobby avatar, and a stamp.

The page with the announcement has since been deleted, but screenshots have already made their way across the internet.
