It’s time to say goodbye to the hype train that is Super Smash Bros directs for the time being. Nintendo aired the final prepared video presentation this afternoon which featured two surprise character announcements – In the form of the witching Bayonetta & the transforming Corrin as well as a ton of additional content.
Previously Nintendo revealed that Cloud Strife will be joining the brawl –and you can download him right now for $5.99 USD (providing that the servers are stable). By purchasing Cloud you also gain access to the Midgard stage for either Wii-U, 3DS or both if you prefer!
Also announced alongside the two new characters were a whole bunch of Mii fighter outfits including licensed consumes from Wario Ware, Super Mario RPG, Sonic The Hedgehog and other franchises. At the end of the video Sakurai even re-counts how much content is available between the two versions and it is simply staggering.
To be honest I’m going to miss the hype and speculation that came with a Super Smash Bros direct. I could spend hours reading sub-reddits and forum threads guessing what the next announcement might be. At least Nintendo is holding onto Corrin, Bayonetta and a lot of the Mii Fighter stuff so we have something to look forward too in 2016!
Check out a summary of all of the announcements below alongside an embed of the YouTube presentation in its entirety.
