The presumably final DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. will be available worldwide in just a few days.
After a year of support, the final days of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS DLC are upon Nintendo fans. Last December marked the final Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct led by Masahiro Sakurai; the final episode of the Smash-themed event featured a plethora of new content, including new Mii Fighter outfits and an update on the final three DLC characters. The previously revealed Cloud Strife of Final Fantasy VII was given a release date (being later that evening), and Fire Emblem If/Fates‘s Corrin was officially confirmed to be the following DLC character. Sakurai closed the broadcast with the announcement of the fan-voted DLC character- Bayonetta. Featuring her unique outfits and techniques from both Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2, the Umbran Witch was the #1 character worldwide “among realizable characters”. Bayonetta’s launch will come with a brand new stage modeled after the iconic “Prologue” sequence from the original Bayonetta.
Yesterday evening, Nintendo announced that both Corrin and Bayonetta will release worldwide on the eShop for both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. Corrin will release for $4.99, alongside Bayonetta with her included stage for $5.99. A Japanese Super Smash Bros. tournament broadcast on NicoNico yesterday evening showcased two matches with Bayonetta and Corrin- a one-on-one with the new DLC characters, and a 4-player free-for-all match:
Bayonetta and Corrin will be available for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS through the eShop starting on 2/3.
