Palutena from Kid Icarus joins the playable roster of Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U; character revealed in the form of short anime trailer

Posted by Cheng Kai 'KarbyP' Sim • June 10, 2014 at 10:45 a.m. PDT

Update: Images of Palutena, the goddess of light, have been added to this story and can be viewed after the jump.

Right before Nintendo's E3 Digital Event ended, Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-aime left viewers with one more surprise announcement: Palutena from Kid Icarus joins the fray in Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U.

The character reveal this time was done in a style we haven't quite seen before. Nintendo actually created a short anime trailer for the game that features not only Palutena, but also Pitt from Kid Icarus and Link from The Legend of Zelda squaring off.

At the end of the trailer, another character from Kid Icarus also makes a cameo appearance (could this be a hint that he may be part of the playable roster)?

No Ridley. No weave or sylux. No Mario RPG chars, daisy or Bowser jr. No vaati, no geno, still no ganon or falcon. Nothing from Fe but blue haired swordsman. Looking like the best smash yer

That Link vs Pit fight broke my wang from the massive boner I got

Honestly i think she's kind of a waste of space, but at least dark pit wasn't announced as a separate character to normal pit....yet >_>

Not a fan of how she states what she's doing with every attack, but hey I'll get used to it.

Neat. Too bad about that terrible voice acting, though.

#19

Ugh. Was the new Kid Icarus really that popular? I mean, people (me included) have been BEGGING for ONE Golden Sun rep, and that game DEFINED an entire Nintendo platform (GBA) but now we have multiple Kid Icarus reps? As if its suddenly an A-list IP?

SmokeRulz said on June 10, 2014 at 10:58 a.m.

I love the Uprising voice acting. Haters go die.

Dark Pit at the end is interesting. I hope he's not a seperate character or anything. I'm hoping he's an alternate costume for regular Pit, and he comes with the alternate voice acting and maybe asthetic move effects.

@20

more of the point is that they seem to be done with that series, while they are still pushing all these other ones....I.E. donkey kong, fire emblem, kid icarus, kirby, mario, etc....

Her voice overs were for the trailer people. How is that not obvious? She's not gonna talk like that during the game. Use your head.

#24
JdotSweapA said on June 10, 2014 at 11:14 a.m.

To be fair, this time around I've actually been spoilt for choice! I don't have a clue who they could be announcing next since the roster is already pretty awesome.

#25
Oohwakamuu said on June 10, 2014 at 11:17 a.m.

I hope they give us an option to change specific colors for costumes. I would be able to turn Palutena into Enix's Ethereal Queen.

Angry Crow takes flight!

Love this addition. Still hoping for Medusa though since the game needs a female villain.

Fun fact: SHAFT (Madoka, Monogatari, NiseKoi) was responsible for this anime sequence.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news...

The dead giveaway was the scenery background, rapid camera angle changes, and of course the signature neck tilts lol

Screw the game, I want a SSB anime now :D

For being animated by SHAFT..... there was a lack of head-tilts.

This is the worst character to ever be added to the game, the worst trailer too. Just put icarus out, too weak to join anyways. It is just a waste of space, we could get Wario and Waluigi instead for example, some REAL Nintendo characters, some that was created in the beginning! Pac-Man was a nice one but this is just sheit.. This is making me not want to buy Super Smash Bros which I for so long have been waiting for. They could have added more Donkey Kong charcters, more Mario characters (bob-omb or goomba for example) and they could have added the koopalings!! So much great characters that could have been added. This character that just were added is one of the weakest and must be EXTREMELY buffed to even hit one of these characters in SSB. *sigh* But that is already how the game is, every character are balanced to make it fun and that how the match goes depends on the player, not the character. However if the characters had their real power, Mario would be 1st and this sheit would be last. Just accept the facts people, this is really, really bad..
