Previously, game director Masahiro Sakurai teased costumes for the Mii fighters based on the other Nintendo combatants. In the teaser, he had one of the Miis posing as Kirby anti-hero Meta Knight, though not an official character reveal. Today on the official Smash Bros. website, it was officially revealed and Meta Knight looks just as intimidating as he did in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This brings our current character count up to 37, or 39 if you count the other two Mii Fighter types.
It should come as no surprise, as earlier this year it was revealed that Meta Knight’s Halberd would once again return as a stage in the game, making it pretty much a guarantee that we would see his return.
I’ve been playing video games ever since I was 4 years old, just a little over two decades ago, and since then, I’ve pretty much devoted my life to them. I love video games. They inspire me. I eventually want to make my own games for people to play and give the same spark that I was given when I was a little kid.
