It’s a bit of a shame that most of the big “surprises” announced were already leaked days before but still, Nintendo finally made it official and released it for download. Get your thumbs, and your wallet, ready for three new characters, three new stages, and a bunch of costumes for your Mii fighters.

Lucas, an Earthbound character that was announced with the Mewtwo announcement, was released. But joining him are veteran fighter Roy from Fire Emblem and newcomer Ryu from the Street Fighter series. Ryu is an interesting addition, for the first time in Smash history, the control scheme is different. Of course you can play Ryu like you would any other Smash character, but you can also play closer to how he’s controlled in Street Fighter. You can hit B to execute a Hadouken or input quarter-circle up+A for a stronger Hadouken. By tapping a button you can do a light attack or by holding down the button you can perform a stronger heavier attack. This adds a lot of strategy to think about when using or playing against the character. Ryu is also the first and only character, as of now, to have TWO Final Smash attacks; a ranged attack or, if performed right next to an opponent, a heavy melee attack.

Along with the new characters comes a few new stages. The first one being the classic Dream Land (64) from the original Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64. Second, accompanying Ryu is his stage Sazuka Castle. And lastly we get the MiiVerse stage which is free but exclusive to there Wii U platform. Each stage provides its own unique setup and comes with an Omega version for the purist.  And lastly, open up the closet because you can purchase a lot of costumes for your Mii Fighters. Some of the outfits include Heihachi from Tekken, Akira from Virtual fighter, Meganman.EXE just to name a few.

There you have it, a decent release for DLC to satisfy your Smash Bros. needs. Roy and Lucas each run $3.99 for either either Wii U or 3DS or $4.99 for both and Ryu plus his stage run $5.99 for each or $6.99 for both. You can get the Dream Land stage for $1.99 each or $2.99 for both systems and the Mii Fighter costumes run $0.75 for each system or $1.15 for both systems. You can also get the costumes in a bundle for $6.00 for each system or $9.20 for both. Happy Smashing!!!

No GravatarOver the weekend, Nintendo said that they would announce a new character coming to the new Super Smash Bros. Turns out instead of one, we got three reveals. That’s right, Nintendo decided to give us three characters in one trailer, one returning veteran, two completely brand new to the series. Take a look at the trailer.

Finally, the reintroduction of Captain Falcon. We all knew he would be back, he’s been a staple character since the first game, but sure took their sweet time in bringing him back. But the main focus of the trailer was the two new characters, both from the Fire emblem series. Introducing Robin and Lucina.

Lucina, a character many fans have been clamoring for, and Robin join both Marth and Ike from the Fire emblem series. All four look to have very different playing styles considering they are all swordsmen from the same game. The variety is welcomed and they all look like fun fighters to use. Chrome, another Fire emblem character, was also shown in the trailer but it seems that he won’t be a playable fighter. Nintendo even made a slight jab at him not getting a chance until it showed him appearing to be either an assist trophy or part of someone’s final smash. Lastly, the trailer showed a female version of Robin would also be available as a costume option.

With this new trailer, the roster climbs to 36 making it the largest roster of the series. This isn’t the end of character announcements as we can still expect a few more. Still waiting for Jigglypuff to return and hopefully a few more newbies but as even as of now this is a superb roster. Super Smash Bros on the 3DS releases October 3 and the Wii U version releases this holiday season.
