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)?
