I was thinking we would at least get some characters confirmed within this year. I'm a bit surprised we haven't gotten any confirmed characters yet, as this game was announced quite a while back.

Just wait until E3 2013 to see what happens. The Wii U comes out the end of this year, the new 3DS, 3DS XL comes out August 19th, can't wait. The old 3DS hurt my hands.

Eh, I could see a late 2013 timeframe, according to Sakurai they already have a prototype that "looks good and plays great" as of June of this year, so I imagine development is going pretty smooth. I mean, Sakurai was hired to work on Brawl in June of 2005 while having to build an entire development team and still managed to get brawl released a little into 2007 after a slight delay to put in Sonic. This was only a little over a year and a half in development after starting from basically scratch.
In the case of the new game, they have a bigger team that's already worked together and Sakurai had been at the very least thinking about the game since before E3 2011, so I think chances are decent to get the game next year.

iirc the 2013 release date was part of the Super Smash Bros. Memories rumor. Quote in there says holiday 2013 which is kind of possible but I'm thinking it will be 2014 when we see this game.

Where does it say that the planned release is 2013? I highly doubt that considering this game started development sometime during January and March of this year.
