Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Bros.

Shulk shines in the spotlight as the newest participant in Super Smash Bros.


Nintendo confirmed today via their just-concluded Japanenese Nintendo Direct conference that Xenoblade Chronicles’ Monado-wielding protagonist, Shulk, will be making his way to Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U and 3DS.

This announcement comes on the heels of a recent leak which seemed to show Bowser Jr. and Duck Hunt’s loveable cackling mutt joining the fray alongside the hero of Monolith Soft’s Wii epic in the latest Smash entry. We can only imagine it’s just a matter of time before those, and possibly even more characters are confirmed for the 3Ds and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. is set to be released on the 3Ds in September, with the Wii U version slated to be released before the end of the year.
