Shigeki Morimoto is scheduled to appear once again in this episode according to Junichi Masuda's Twitter feed. Contrary to what many fansites are speculating about his appearance, this is a scheduled appearance as the last time he was on Smash was for the 4th Smash tournament as a judge/spectator.

He will be taking a similar role in this episode as he did in the previous episode. Despite there being a large announcement on January 8th, 2013, it is VERY unlikely that Masuda or Morimoto will announce anything on Smash 117 as most of the live action part of the episode will be filled with the tournament like last time. There is even more participants in this 5th tournament than in the 4th tournament, so they will already be stretched for time.

It is also VERY unlikely that The Pokemon Company would trump their own announcement by two days. Whatever the announcement is, Smash will cover it in their Marketing Department segment sometime mid to late January 2013.
