Lucas Comes to Super Smash Bros. This Month

Lucas will be joining Super Smash Bros. on June 14.

Last April, in a Super Smash Bros.-focused Nintendo Direct, Nintendo made the surprise announcement of Lucas' return in the form of a paid DLC. Now, it has given us a date for the EarthBound character's release: June 14.

According to the official website, Lucas will sell for the same price as prior DLC character Mewtwo - $3.99 if you just want him on either the 3DS or Wii U, or $4.99 for both systems. Unlike Mewtwo, though, there will be no special promotion to get him for free (gamers who bought both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Smash Bros. got Mewtwo for free).

Lucas' arrival marks the release of the first DLC character announced post-launch - and certainly sets the precedent for removed favourites such as Snake, Roy, and the Ice Climbers to return. Indeed, some super sleuths over at reddit discovered files for Fire Emblem's Roy and Street Fighter's Ryu in the latest Smash Bros. patch, suggesting that these will be the next DLC fighters.

Alongside Lucas, several Splatoon-themed outfits for Miis will arrive in the game the same day for $0.75 each. The Japanese Nintendo Twitter also said that a new Miiverse-themed stage would be released for the game next week, though we have no word on a US date.

YESSSS. Time to troll my friend with PK Freeze once more!

See, i would be happy about this, but the fact is it's not Ryu.

I WANT NINTENDO VS CAPCOM DAMMIT! DX

Just in time for E3? Mother 3 on Wii U VC confirmed!

I'm legitimately starting to wonder how they're going to fit all these characters on the selection screen since there's already almost no more room.

It'll be interesting to see how he plays.

Also, here's hoping the game comes with a balance patch, because Ness needs a nerf.

It's not the Lucas I want:

Nah, I think the two companies more or less can't stand each other now, most of the old connections that make CvS possible in the first place are no longer there.
That and SNK would just find a way to make it a mobile game ¬_¬

do people actually care about a palette swap? alright

His specials may already be in the game, but his movement and aerials are totally different. Good to see him back.

I've always preferred using Lucas to Ness, so I am glad he's back.

Though something still disturbs me about Roy possibly coming back. Unless he got an entirely new move set, there is no justification for a third Marth in Smash. Having one clone is fine, I have no problems with that, but two clones? NO!

Confirmed for not having any idea what they're talking about.
