Three New Smash Characters Revealed
Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS hit stores in the US yesterday and is quickly becoming one of Nintendo’s most popular releases of the year. Following yesterday’s release Nintendo today revealed the addition of three more new Smash characters to be released for Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U. Falco from Starfox, Earthbound’s Ness, and Wario will be joining the fight on the Wii U as unlockable characters.
Nintendo announced the addition of these new Smash characters on the official Smash Bros. site, but did not include any details about their move list and whether it will be different from previous versions. However, since all three characters are already included in the 3DS version of the game most likely they will include the same moves as their 3DS counterparts. How these characters will be unlocked has also yet to be determined at this point.
All three of these new Smash characters have made various appearances in this franchise over the years and fans of the series have to be excited about the continuous additions to the cast. Ness has been a regular among the cast as far back as the original Super Smash Bros. for the N64. So there is not much surprise about his addition to the Wii U version. Falco also is no stranger to the Smash arena with his overall popularity in Melee for the Gamecube; Nintendo’s most popular version of the game to date. Wario makes his return from his introduction in Brawl on the Wii and is probably the most surprising new addition to the cast due to the lack of popularity of the Wii version of Smash.
Nintendo has had a very good second half of 2014 building solid momentum with titles like Mario Kart 8 (Wii U), Bravely Default (3DS), and Super Smash Bros. (3DS). The Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. doesn’t have an official release date as of yet. A November release has been hinted all year and Nintendo is expected to follow through with this rumored date. The Wii U version of Smash is destined to be their big hit of the holiday season hoping to compete with big name titles such as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Assassin’s Creed: Unity. With many other exciting releases set for 2015 this is the perfect time for people to pick up Nintendo’s next-gen system.
