Xenoblade | Shulk - Smash Bros

In the recent Japan-only Nintendo Direct, a new 3DS was announced which will have two sticks, as well as a better CPU. We also learned from that Direct that Nintendo will be releasing a Xenoblade port for this new 3DS. Apparently it will only work on this new model of 3DS, not the old models currently out. Also, there is no official confirmation that Xenoblade will be released outside of Japan as of yet. We’ll update the article if we receive new information.

Apparently Nintendo was in the mood for announcements because they also released a new Smash Bros. Trailer featuring Shulk! That’s right it’s official, Shulk is in Smash! Watch the trailer below:
