Here are the Final ‘Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U’ DLC Characters


Corrin, Cloud, and Bayonetta are all coming to Smash very soon. 

During the Final Video Presentation for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, the last three DLC characters were revealed and detailed in-depth. 

These characters are Corrin from the upcoming Final Fantasy Fates, Cloud from Final Fantasy 7 (who was initially revealed last month), and Bayonetta from her titular games. 

Corrin was the first character revealed during the presentation.

Hailing from Fire Emblem Fates, coming to North America in February for the 3DS, Corrin uses a variety of dragon-based attacks to subdue foes.

Similar to Robin and Wii Fit Trainer, Corrin is also playable as a male or female version.

Corrin will be available to download in February for both consoles. 

Next, Cloud’s moveset was revealed in full-detail (7:56 of the presentation video). 

All of his special attacks are based off his abilities in Final Fantasy 7, but his most interesting special is his down-b, Limit Break. 

Limit Break works by first charging up a hidden Limit meter, which once full, will increase all of Cloud’s stats, and give a one-use boost to his other specials.

Cloud will release later today (12/15/15) on the 3DS and Wii U e-Shop.

The final character revealed, and the winner of the worldwide Smash Ballot poll, was none other than Bayonetta. 

Bayonetta comes from her series of frantic action games available on Wii U, and the combo heavy nature of her games is reflected in her Smash character. 

She can use abilities like Bullet Climax and Witch Time, a move that temporarily slows down time, all of which can be chained together to form devastating combos. 

Bayonetta’s costumes will be based off her appearances in both her second game (where she had short hair), and the first. 

Also, she will come packed with a new “Umbra Clock Tower” stage, based off the iconic opening of her original game. 

Bayonetta is targeted to be available to download in February 2016. 

The presentation ended with series creator Masahiro Sakurai thanking fans for supporting the game post-launch.
