Nintendo Direct: Bayonetta Joins Super Smash Bros.
Nintendo revealed some enlightening news for this week’s Nintendo Direct, which was the final Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct video presentation. You can watch the complete presentation in the player below. But among the announcements were two new DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS, including Bayonetta.
Super Smash Bros. franchise creator Masahiro Sakurai narrated the presentation and revealed the remaining DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo Wii U and 3DS. Those two characters will be Bayonetta of the Bayonetta franchise and Corrin from Fire Emblem : Fates. Corrin will have both male and female versions in the game. The Corrin DLC character will not have a new stage, but there will be two new musical tracks for the game with Corrin. Also, the 3DS version will have new Ryomo and Xander-themed trophies.
The new fighter doesn’t have a dedicated stage, but buying them as DLC will also net you two new musical tracks. The 3DS version of the DLC also comes with Ryomo and Xander trophies.
Other additions for the game include some new Mii Fighter costumes. These include the Chocobo from Final Fantasy, Geno from Super Mario RPG. These costumes are out now. The next set of Mii Fighter costumes are Takamaru, Ashley, Gil and of course, Tails and Knuckles from the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. These wave six costumes will be available for the game starting in February 2016.
Corrin and Bayonetta join Super Smash Bros. in February 2016. Both characters will be available for $5.99 each, or $6.99 for both. If you are also looking to add these characters to your Amiibo collection, you need not worry. Amiibo figurines are in development for both characters. In addition, Cloud Strife of the Final Fantasy franchise and the Midgar Stage are now available for the game.
Unfortunately, these are set to be the last DLC characters for the current iteration of the fighting game franchise for Wii U and 3DS. One imagines that the next Super Smash Bros. game will be released for Nintendo’s upcoming NX console.
