Nintendo Is On Fire With Content and Characters For The Upcoming Super Smash Bros.
Ok so yesterday we ran the story about that Nintendo was supposed to unveil a new Super Smash Bros. character during their live feed event today. Well guess what they did not….because they announced four that will be appearing in the upcoming Nintendo title instead! I still don’t understand fully why Nintendo chose a live streaming option for this event instead of their usual polished Nintendo Direct lectures.
Well anyway lets get to the meat here. I am sure you want to know who there new characters are. The new challengers coming to the party are as follows: Captain Falcon from the F-Zero series and a whopping three from Fire Emblem: Awakening: Robin, Lucina, and Chrom. Now keep in mind Chrom didn’t get an official release screen so he may just be assist or part of a special move or finish. We will have to wait for clarification from Nintendo or the game’s director/producer Masuhiro Sakurai on that last bit.
Still though 4 characters (even if one may only be a supporting member) in one day is great news. The roster keeps getting bulkier and that to me is a fantastic thing because the more characters there are the more unique play styles there can possibly be and the less likely they will do the whole charge for DLC to buy new characters which I still worry about in the back of my mind. We don’t have to wait to much long to get our grubby little paws on the game because Super Smash Bros. will be coming out for the 3DS/2DS in October and some time near the holiday for Wii U. Keep in mind this will also be the first game to support Amiibos Toys which will be able to enhance the game in different ways and will also eventually work with Mario Kart 8, Mario Party 10, Yoshi’s Wooly World, and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.
Do you think this is last of the characters that will be announced for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games? Or do you think Nintendo still has some surprises up their sleeves for us? Is there a character that you really want in the game that hasn’t been introduces yet? Let know in the comments below.
Here is the video that Nintendo showed off today via the Nintendo YouTube page:
