During today's Nintendo Direct, we learned a lot of information about the future of the Smash Bros. roster.

Mewtwo will be coming April 28. The price will be $4.00 for each platform or $5 if you buy both 3DS and Wii U versions together.

Mewtwo will be released on April 28, Users who registered both a 3DS and Wii U version of Smash will still get their download for free.

In addition, Super Smash Bros. Update 1.06 will introduce a host of new options including new downloadable costumes for Mii Fighters, an updated photo mode, and more.

Despite an earlier statement that Mewtwo would be the only paid downloadable content for Super Smash Bros., Lucas from Mother 3 (and a previous Smash fighter) also made a surprise appearance. He'll be coming out as downloadable content sometime in June.

But that's not the end of DLC characters. Nintendo also announced a Smash Fighter Ballot site on the official Smash Bros. web portal where you can go to let Nintendo know exactly who you want to see in the game next.
