Every Super Smash Bros. game since GameCube’s Melee has added several new characters, while also removing others; one example is the newly released Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, which removed fan-favorite characters such as StarFox‘s Wolf and the Ice Climbers. However, some may have the potential to return to the series, as Nintendo has announced Pokémon number 150 is returning in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
Announced during a Smash-focused Nintendo Direct today, Mewtwo will be making a return as a playable character in the new games by way of downloadable content next spring. While the character will be post-launch downloadable content, anyone who buys both the 3DS and Wii U Smash Bros. games will receive the character free of charge. This is in addition to a two-disc soundtrack, as announced earlier in the year.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS was released earlier this month in non-Japanese regions. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U releases in North America on November 21, in Europe on December 5, and in Australia and Japan on December 6.
