Dr. Mario, Dark Pit, Gannondorf and R.O.B have been officially revealed on Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. website.
Since Super Smash Bros. for 3DS has been out for a few weeks now, all of the game’s “secret” characters have been well and truly discovered. However, that isn’t stopping Nintendo from sticking to its usual M.O of slowly trickling down character reveals through its official site. Previously, we saw the “secret” characters of Ness, Falco and Wario unveiled, and now it’s time for some more.
Dr. Mario, of the Mario franchise, Dark Pit, of the Kid Icarus franchise, Ganondorf, of the Zelda franchise and NES robot accessory R.O.B are the latest characters to be revealed, complete with screenshot galleries from both the 3DS and Wii U versions.
Check them out below:
As with the last gallery, while we’ve all seen these characters in action on the 3DS version of the game, via fan footage or with our own eyes, this is our first time seeing how they look in the glorious HD Wii U version. It’s interesting that of these four characters, three are “clones” of existing characters, something that Game Director Masahiro Sakurai talked about recently.
With this addition, only four of the 11 confirmed “secret” characters have yet to be officially revealed by Nintendo. I’m sure we’ll see them show up on the official site ahead of the Wii U version’s November 21 release date.
