New Super Smash Bros. Characters in 2016

If you are a lifetime fan of the Super Smash Bros. series, then you will be happy to hear about this. Nintendo has taken their efforts into giving the fans what we want to a new level. During a recent fighter ballot, we were all able to choose who should be added onto the roster in the future.

Creator Masahiro Sakurai announced that there will be 3 brand new DLC characters available February 2016. Joining the characters list includes Bayonetta (overall top pick in the fighter ballot), Corrin from Fire Emblem Fates, and Cloud from Final Fantasy VII.

My top choice was Cloud out of this batch of new DLC's hands down. Cloud will possess his Limit Break ability, which will allow players to summon the Final Fantasy universe like Bahamut ZERO. When this ability is activated, whoever triggered the summon (best case scenario should always be Cloud for me) will be safe from damage.

Quite honestly I think this is one of the best moves Nintendo has implemented within the past few years. Each character will have their own price tag and exclusive stages as well.

  • Cloud (male or female) + Chocobo hat for Mii Fighters: $5.99 for Nintendo 3DS or Wii U and $6.99 for both versions.
  • Corrin: $4.99 for either version or $5.99 for both versions.
  • Bayonetta + Umbra Clock Tower stage: $5.99 for either version or $6.99 for both versions.

Are you happy with the new additions? What character would you like to see as a DLC in the future?
