Nintendo Direct: Smash Bros. News

Nintendo’s April 1st Direct got off to a Smashing start, with the much-anticipated trailer for DLC fighter Mewtwo. He comes back to the brawl for the first time since 2001’s Smash Bros. Melee.

Originally announced as a Club Nintendo-exclusive, Mewtwo will be made available for purchase to everyone for $4.99.

Even more surprising is the return of Mother 3’s Lucas, last seen in 2008’s Smash Bros. Brawl. He will be a DLC fighter starting in June.

Nintendo also announced more amiibo goodness. Wave 4 now has a date: May . In addition, Nintendo announced two more figures to the wave: Greninja and Jigglypuff. Nintendo even announced Wave 5 pre-emptively, tentatively scheduled for September. This wave includes figures like Zero Suit Samus and Ganondorf.

Ness, who is part of Wave 4, will be a GameStop exclusive. Starting tomorrow at 2 PM EST, you can pre-order him online or in-store (good luck).

As if that wasn’t enough, the same day that Mewtwo goes live, Mii Fighters will get more costumes in-game, such as Link or a cuddly teddy bear.
