Super Smash Bros - Olimar

Once more, the star of the Pikmin series is coming to show off his fighting skills, as Captain Olimar enters the newest Super Smash Bros tournament. Revealed on the Wii U Facebook page, our treasure-seeking hero will be playable in Nintendo’s upcoming fighting title, as well as making an appearance in Pikmin 3 for the Wii U coming out this August.

While no real information on the pint- sized astronaut’s fighting move list has been revealed, we do know he is going to be using his army of Pikmin to fight Nintendo’s finest, including the poisonous White Pikmin, as pictured above.

Super Smash Bros will be on the Wii U and 3DS, and will be released for both consoles in 2014.

Super Smash Bros Wii U/3DS, as well as Pikmin 3, are available for pre-order on Amazon:

About Samuel North

A writer at Operation Rainfall, a lover of videogames, and an insomniac who can't tell what day it is. There really isn't much else interesting to say, except that I've eaten an entire box of ramen noodles in one sitting.




  • Diego de Sousa

    I hope he is remade since (imho) he was not very good

    • Ookiiushi Desu

      I agree.

    • Buv

      Apparently, and this surprised me until I really started using him, he is ranked number 2 or 3 on the tier lists. His grab is absolutely insane.

    • Alex Martinez

      Gotta agree with Buv here. Every time someone told me Olimar was trash, I’d trash them using Olimar. And I’ve fought some pretty good people who said that. Even if I didn’t win, I’d usually prove that the little captain wasn’t to be underestimated.

    • air_dex

      I agree. Olimar is useless. Its lethal Final Smash saves him from doom.

  • MusubiKazesaru

    I thought he wasn’t it Pikmin 3?
