The Final Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS presentation was today, featuring a number of new characters for the game. Who made it in? Who won the poll? Let’s find out.
To start, we get the main character for the new Fire Emblem Fates, Corrin. Just like Robin, Corrin will be playable as both a male and female in-game. No new stage will be added. However, music from the new game will be featured. Corrin will be available in February.
Next, we get a new look at Cloud Strife, the character revealed during the last Nintendo Direct. The new stage coming with him is Midgar, which will feature summons that any character can use. The stage will be available in both versions. You can purchase Cloud today.
But that’s not all. New Mii Fighter costumes will be coming as well. Featured was Square Enix’s Geno from Super Mario RPG. Other costumes coming will include the following:
- Chocobo Hat
- Bionic Armor
- Ashley (WarioWare)
- Gil (The Tower of Druaga)
- Tails (Sonic the Hedgehog)
- Knuckles (Sonic the Hedgehog)
And if you want lookalike Mii Fighters, you can download the Mii via QR Code on the Smash website.
One more fighter was announced, and this was the winner of the Super Smash Bros. ballot, winning worldwide as well as in Europe and coming in the top 10 in North America. That fighter is none other than Bayonetta. Yep, the character thought “too hot for Smash” — thanks to promotions in Playboy for Bayonetta 2 — is the final character to be included into Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. Some moves will require her hair outfit, although it doesn’t seem like it will go farther than leaving her in a mini-dress (you know, because it’s a T-rated game). Bayonetta will have her outfits from both games as well a color swap inspired by Jeanne.
The new stage coming with her will be Umbra Clock Tower, based on the opening scene from the first game. Songs from both games, as well as special remixes for Smash, will be added as well. Our favorite witch was given a February release window.
And now that we have that announcement, it does seem a little anti-climatic to say that R.O.B., Roy, and Ryu will have their amiibo figures released on March 18th, 2016. Cloud, Corrin, and Bayonetta will also be receiving figures as well with a release date to be determined later.
And that is all she wrote. Once all is said and done, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS will have a total of 58 characters with 84 stages (assuming you purchase all the DLC fighters). What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
