Earlier this year, Nintendo asked for everyone in its community to vote on who should be added to the popular brawler. By worldwide votes, Bayonetta came in first in Europe and in the top 5 in the US. Looking at worldwide statistics, Sakurai said that she was the top-voted character that it was possible to negotiate for an in-game appearance.
The character will have two primary costume options: a Bayonetta 2 short-hair variation and an Bayonetta 1 long-hair form as well as a "Jeanne" color variation. You can check them all out in the gameplay video above (coming soon).
Bayonetta's Smash arena is a variation on the Umbra Clock Tower stage from the first Bayonetta game. She's due to enter the fight sometime next February. And like Final Fantasy VII's Cloud, she'll cost $6 individually on 3DS or Wii U, or you can get her on both systems for $7.
Bayonetta is an interesting third-party addition to the Smash Bros. roster, but Bayonetta 2 garnered a perfect 10 from GameSpot's reviewer last year, so the inclusion shouldn't be too much of a surprise.
