Lucas And Mewtwo Coming To Super Smash Bros.

Mewtwo and LucasEveryone suspected that Mewtwo wasn't the only downloadable character for the Super Smash Bros. titles for Wii U and 3DS, but today Nintendo confirmed that by revealing that while Mewtwo is due out for release on April 28, Mother 3's own Lucas is returning from Super Smash Bros. Brawl in June.  Moreover, amiibo figurines for both characters are planned for future release. If Mewtwo and Lucas weren't on your character wish list, head over to the Smash Bros. website and vote for your favorite character to appear as future DLC. 

Adding to all of that, a bundle of new costume accessories based on iconic Nintendo properties are also coming soon so you'll be able to outfit your Mii with Majora's mask, Link's cap, Mega Man X's helmet and armor, Proto Man's red outfit, and more.  It's all paid DLC, of course, although Mewtwo is free if you registered both versions of the game with Club Nintendo before the end of March 2015.  If you want to pay for Mewtwo, he'll cost you $3.99 per version of the game or $4.99 if purchased as a bundle.  The costumes are available individually or as a bundle deal, too.

If you're heavily involved with the Smash Bros. experience, then I'd think buying more characters is an easy choice to make, although the costumes are really only worth it if you're a dedicated Mii player.  I don't know about you, but I play Smash to interact with Nintendo's all-stars and not the Miis, but it's nice to know there's options out there for all kinds of players.  Check out this portion of today's Nintendo Direct presentation to see all of the new Smash news in action.
