Cloud Storms into Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS Today!
The final Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct presentation wrapped up earlier today and with the announcement of two new fighters (Corrin and Bayonetta), it was also announced that Cloud from Final Fantasy VII would be releasing today for both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game. Fans that purchase Cloud will also receive the Midgar stage, coming complete with five summons as stage hazards.
Also released today, in partnership with Square-Enix, is the Chocobo Hat for Mii fighters, as well as a special outfit based on Geno from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars for the Mii Gunner. Geno has always been a heavily requested character, so it’s nice to see him included in the series in some way.
