Final Fantasy‘s most iconic hero Cloud Strife will be the next Super Smash Bros. DLC fighter.

Nintendo capped off its Nintendo Direct presentation this morning with a surprise announcement: Cloud Strife, the iconic Final Fantasy VII hero, will be the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros.

From the look that we got of him, it seems like Cloud will be a melee fighter-type character, in a similar vein to Ike and Marth. He uses a variety of his special attacks from the game, and appears to be able to summon other characters to help him out.

It also looks like Cloud will come with his own Final Fantasy-themed stage.

We’re not sure when Cloud will be released, but we can probably expect him to cost the usual $5.99 per platform or $6.99 for both.
