When I awoke early this afternoon, I didn’t expect the entire Twitterverse to be hyping over 3 new Super Smash Bros characters, after the promised one Nintendo had stated they would announce early this morning. However, more is always better, especially in a series as great as Super Smash Bros. This morning, three more characters were revealed to be playable in both the Wii U & 3DS version of the game. With Captain Falcon, being a returning character, as well as two characters from the latest, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Robin and Lucina, bringing the total amount of playable characters to a whopping 36!

With the 3DS Version of the game launching on October 3rd, and the Wii U version launching this Holiday Season, I think it’s safe to say that we should be able to reach the 50 playable characters achievement sometime soon! Keep your eyes peeled here for further announcements regarding the game. Oh! and also check out the new trailer below!
