Sakurai Confirms Mewtwo is "Coming Soon"
Masahiro Sakurai, aka the man/myth/legend behind the Super Smash Bros. series has stated that the highly-anticipated DLC featuring fan-favorite character Mewtwo is “pretty much done”. Thus, they’re still on track to release the character this Spring.
Mewtwo is the first ever DLC character to arrive in Smash Bros. Ever since his arrival in Melee on the Gamecube fans have loved his gameplay style. Yet curiously, he was left out of Brawl on the Wii. Replaced by popular Pokemon Lucario. The fans wanted him back in the Wii U/3DS version, but he was left off of the main roster. Then, during a special Nintendo Direct, they revealed that Mewtwo was indeed coming back, via a DLC download.
To receive the Mewtwo DLC, you can do one of two things. If you already have a copy of Super Smash Bros 3DS AND Wii U, you can register the Club Nintendo numbers on the Club Nintendo site and have the DLC code emailed to you for free.
IF YOU WISH TO DO THAT…you have to register before March 31st. Else, you’ll have to pay to get the Mewtwo DLC.
Nintendo has stated that Mewtwo is the only planned DLC for Super Smash Bros., mainly because of how long it takes to program a single character. However, if downloads are big enough…you never know…
