Luigi confirmed for new Super Smash Bros.

Luigi joins his elder brother in the next Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo has revealed its latest addition to the roster of characters for upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS: Luigi.

New screenshots from the game on Nintendo's official site show Luigi in a range of awkward poses typical for Mario's anxious younger brother.

Luigi has featured as an unlockable character in all three previous Smash Bros. titles, including the series' last outing Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

A fan petition is also asking Nintendo to include executive Reggie Fils-Aime as a playable character in the game.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS are expected to launch in 2014. There will be no cross-platform play between the two.

Luigi joins previously announced characters Pikmin & Olimar, Villager, Mario, Donkey Kong, Mega Man, Wii Fit Trainer, Link, Samus, Kirby, Fox, Pikachu, Bowser, and Pit.

For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's interview with Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai.

It seems that Gamespot is the best Nintendo news source shy of XBOX Magazine.

Wow, I'm surprised. I would never expect to see Luigi in this game. Thank you very much Nintendo, you always know what we want and when we want! That's the greatest reason to pick SSB, nobody should miss the chance to play as LUIGI!!! Dammit I can't wait!

OMG YES,


I ALMOST THOUGHT HE WOULD NOT MAKE IT INTO THE GAME.  NOW I HOPE BY THE GODS MARIO IS ACTUALLY IN THE GAME AS WELL DESPITE SHOWING SCREENSHOTS OF HIM ALREADY.


YOU NEVER KNOW, HE MIGHT BE OPTED OUT FOR A THIRD PARTY CHARACTER LIKE CRASH BANDICOOT.

Wii Fit Trainer!? XD 

I hope she's full of annoying words of encouragement while she's kicking ass :P

@samus_my_life Dark Samus would be an incredible addition. My friend who is a Metroid freak already told me what all of her attacks could be and it sounds awesome. It would be completely different from regular Samus as well which is nice.

@samus_my_life HOW DARE YOU NOT CARE IT'S FUCKING LUIGI!!!

NOW ALL THEY NEED IS MARIO WITH AN ALTERNATE COSTUME THEN THIS GAME IS COMPLETE

@rushiosan They weren't trying to represent it as some great news. They just added screenshots of Luigi to their site.

@inso-maniac i can totally picture Tails in the game,  me and my friends even debated a possible moveset that would work really well with the game mechanics. Such as:
-His ^B(Recovery move)  could be his im almost surprised they didnt put him
his < or>B(vertical move) can be he charges up his tail and could release to zoom vertically, risky charging move similar to Sonics.

and his Smash could be his Tornado plane transforms into the mecha form and he can use that for a good 15-20 sec and get some decent damage and some K.Os

@gosushi That was my expression too when I found about the Wii Fit Trainer, but that would make for interesting gameplay so I'm okay with it. :P
