The rumors were right. Shulk, the main hero from Xenoblade Chronicles, is the latest fighter to join the roster for Nintendo's upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for Wii U and 3DS. Earlier this week, a massive roster leak revealed Shulk, along with Bowser Jr. and the dog from Duck Hunt.
As you can see in the trailer above, Shulk will wield his epic mythical sword, Monado, in the game. If you pause at the 1:44 mark, you can see that--for whatever reason--it looks like there is a clothes-free variation of Shulk that will also be available in the game.
Shulk for Super Smash Bros. brings the game's total roster to 38 characters (not counting the rumored ones), eleven of which are new to the series. You can see the full roster below, with fighters new to the franchise in bold.

- Diddy Kong
- Little Mac

- Rosalina & Luma
- Toon Link
