The lovable penguin villain from the Kirby franchises will be returning in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. title.
King Dedede, Kirby's arch nemesis and the main villain from the Kirby franchise, will be returning in Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS. Originally slated to be included, but taken out at the last minute, in both the original Super Smash Bros. and it's sequel, Super Smash Bros. Melee, King Dedede made his Smash Bros. debut in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

It's no co-incidence that Kirby Triple Deluxe, the latest game in the Kirby universe, was released today in Japan. There is a clear pattern of Nintendo revealing returning characters for the new Smash Bros. game in either the lead-up to, or aftermath of, new games in the respective characters' series being released.
It's also probably worth noting that Masahiro Sakurai, game director on Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS, is the creator of the Kirby franchise.
