Lucas is Coming to Smash Bros. 4

Lucas will be coming to the latest Smash Bros. title as a DLC character in June.

So it looks like Mewtwo won't be the only DLC character for the latest Smash Bros. title on 3DS and Wii U. Lucas, of EarthBound fame will be joining the battle as a DLC character. Check out his intro trailer to the right.

Lucas will be launching in June, and will be available for both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game. From the looks of things, he still appears to basically be a clone of Ness with a few tweaks. Nintendo didn't offer up any pricing details but we can assume he will be similarly priced to Mewtwo.

Speaking of which, Nintendo also announced that Mewtwo, which was previously only available as a special club Nintendo offer for those who bought both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game, will also be available as a stand-alone purchase. The fighter will be available to purchase on either platform for $3.99, or on both for $4.99.

Those who took advantage of the special club Nintendo offer will get Mewtwo on April 15, with those wishing to purchase him seperatley having to wait until April 28.

There's also a fighter intro video for Mewtwo, which you can check out below:

Lastly, is your Nintendo character of choice not in the game yet? How about a third-party character that you think would fit best? Nintendo is taking suggestions from fans on who the next fighter to be included in the game should be.

If this turns out to be a joke, I'll be heartbroken. His exclusion from Smash 4 was my biggest grievance with the game. He was my main in Smash 3.

Now to wonder what characters are going to top out the ballots on the voting list for possible characters

Inb4 "April fools!"

oh wait, nah yer fine, Nintendo has no sense of humor x.o

Why's everyone been calling Brawl "Smash 3" in retrospect? I've been noticing that on multiple websites.

Steven Bogos:

If you do want to take advantage of the special club Nintendo offer, you only have until April 15 to register your copies of the game.

Actually, Club Nintendo registration ended yesterday (March 31). Mewtwo will be released early to those who took advantage of the offer on April 15, and will be available for purchase on April 28.

I don't know... Reggie did a sketch with Mega64. And they had the robot chicken people do skits for their last E3 presentation...

KLONOA!

Gah! I'm torn between this and Tetra...

I voted for Rundas from Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, since I'd like to see a non-Samus Metroid character.

I hope people noticed he said vote for a video game character, so all those people wanting Goku etc will most likely not get it, he's primarily an anime character.

To all those complaining you'd have to buy the 3DS game for $40 to get him, he'll be $3.99 on the eshop, so you can quit complaining. Like they were going to lock him off completely.

Because unlike Brawl or Melee, there's no *real* way to refer Smash 4's name other than calling it Smash 4. (I would've preferred "Smash Bros: Fisticuffs" but apparently Nintendo executed their entire marketing department and replaced them with a beagle.) Calling Brawl "Smash 3" is just naturally conforming with the new pattern we're forced into.

Its cool that they are soliciting suggestions. My personal votes are for E. Gadd (could be a cool character) or for Solid Snake to make a comeback (which might make Kojima happy considering he wanted him to be in the game again and he's been having kinda a bad month).

It's a good thing that you can eventually buy Mewtwo without having to own both Smash Bros. I might pick him up.

Lucas is kind of odd in this game. I don't really like Ness anyways, nor do I like Earthbound/Mother. So I think I'll pass on him.

Cast my ballot for Banjo & Kazooie. It's a long shot, yes, but I love those two to death, and them being in Smash would be awesome. In honesty I'm expecting Simon Belmont, Solid Snake and Bayonetta to be the serious contenders for this though.

It is good to see him back. Say what you will about Brawl, but at least the clone characters there were distinct instead of being Dark Pit. And I say that as a huge Kid Icraus Uprising fan. Honestly the thing that I'm hyped for most is the possibility of more DLC characters, because who knows who we'll get. Chrom, Hades, Rundas, etc. Maybe Adam, because having Samus beat him to a pulp would be amusing. And of course third parties. Still holding out for Rayman, Bayo and Snake...

Also some Killer Instinct characters, but I know that would never happen, so I have to temper my expectations. DK vs Thunder would be an awesome matchup though.

Meh. Don't care about Lucas.

As far as that poll is concerned; I submitted a vote for Bayonetta. Now that she is a Nintendo character, she should definitely get a spot. Her games are incredibly well-received, she is fun to play as in her games, she is well liked and her playstyle would be incredibly easy to translate into a Smash Bros. fighter moveset.

Already put my vote in for Klonoa, that makes at least 3 of us. Wouldn't be surprised if he makes the top 10 requests, considering how often he turns up in the smash threads

I've never played Earthbound, so when I read the headline I thought it meant THIS Lucas.

Oh fuck you Nintendo, this had BETTER NOT be a joke. Ness and Lucas are my favorite fighters!

That trailer looks totally legit though. Way more effort had to have gone into it than the Rayman hoax if this is fake.

Not really a fan of Lucas, he just seems like another clone character to me as I can't even remember if he was different from Ness.

I prefer Lucas over Ness by a good ammount, he was one of my favourite characters from Brwal, this makes me happy.

I wonder, since Splatoon is a new IP, if a character from it can appear as DLC in the game later too.

Yes I want the Queen in SSB!

Insert some actual novelty - like Ridley or the aforementioned Rundas - and then we'll talk, Nintendo.

technically Ridley is already in the game, as a stage boss, and nintendo has already commented that they felt he was too big to make a playable character, because if they did make him one, he'd have to be shrunk down, which would reduce the awesome factor or something to that effect.

still, I'll add to the hat as well of people who would go for one of the non-samus hunters =)

Using three different computers, I voted for Serperior the Pokemon, Isaac from Golden Sun, and...Chrom, because I wanted to send a message. He deserved better!!!

Hero of Lime:
Isaac from Golden Sun

Isaac got my vote, not only is he from an underrepresented Nintendo series, his psyenergy could make for a really interesting moveset. I'd also be okay with Felix or really any character from that series, Isaac is just the most likely.

As much as I would love to see Chrom we already have Ike, Marth and Lucina and you can only have so many blue haired, sword swinging, Fire Emblem main characters.

Edit: Who am I kidding, throw Chrom in there, he can even just be a color swap of somebody else ala Bowser Jr, or Villager style. I want to see him, Marth, Lucina and Robin all fighting together.

Isaac is definitely my main choice for the ballot. Going to your point about color swaps, that would be good enough for me to get Chrom as a swap of Lucina/Marth or even Ike. I feel like there is so much potential in using costume swaps to make more playable characters out of existing ones.

Third vote for Isaac in here. It saddened me greatly that he was an assist trophy in Brawl, but didn't even reprise that role in Smash 4. Like I said in my ballot, his being in Smash could help boost interest in Golden Sun like Marth/Roy did for Fire Emblem.

And the problem with Chrom as a character is, IIRC, he's a part of Robin's Final Smash. Not sure that having him would work from a thematic feel.

I VOTED THE SAME THING :O. I hope we get Banjo Kazooie they would make a amazing addition!!!

Hm, they don't look as fun to play as their Project M counterparts.

Oh well, good effort, Nintendo.

Great, now the real question is when are we getting Mother 3...

That would be really cool actually.

This is bloody awesome!

Voted for K Rool and for Masked Man from Mother 3, we need more villains!

Seriously....how is Bayonetta not in Smash yet, as it is now a Nintendo exclusive??????????????????????????

Smash 64.
Smash melee.
Smash Brawl.
Smash Rumble. (WiiU/3DS)
Smash Beatdown.
Smash Smackdown.
What's the point of voting? They provided some dumb reasons to definitively say we won't get Ridley, and Dark Samus is an assist trophy already.
As for things that won't take effort to put in: Chrom as an alternate skin for Lucina. Actual Robin. (Beefy build, brown hair)
