The leaker is known as Sabi and is notorious for Nintendo related leaks of the Smash Bros. series on Smashboards and ResetEra. Sabi was recently on a Twitter rampage dishing out a bunch of 'leaked' information regarding Nintendo's upcoming Direct, and other developer/publisher announcements.

Sabi recently went back to Twitter to say that "I have been given a cease and desist from a lawyer representing Nintendo. They have my full name and everything. This means I'm not allowed to post any private trade secrets from Nintendo co ltd. This does not mean I cannot post things from other companies, but not Nintendo." Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director, Masahiro Sakurai replied to the Tweet saying "I see my ninjas have done their work". I suppose your life is not a safe one when you are a known leaker of game information. Especially when you have Sakurai's ninja's coming after you.
