Super Smash Bros is out today with 37 characters available to play from the get-go, but you’ll have to fight for three more, Nintendo tells us.
Though Nintendo’s revealed the trio on the game’s official site (complete with a spoiler warning), there’s not quite any clues as to how to unlock them or how they’ll handle on each system. With neither the 3DS nor the Wii U version of the game owning any exclusive characters, most assume there’ll be few differences in terms of gameplay.
Earthbound’s Ness makes his fourth appearance since his debut on the original Super Smash Bros. on N64 while Falco will make his third since Melee and Wario his second, six years after his entrance into the Smash Bros. universe in Brawl for Wii.
All three characters are in the 3DS game, now out everywhere games are sold. We thought the game’s demo, also out on the Nintendo eShop, was rather interesting.
The characters will appear in the Wii U version of the game, the release date of which has yet to be announced despite rumors pointing to a November release later this fall. National Smash Bros. tournaments have been further organized by Nintendo to celebrate the two games’ release with cash prizes for only the best Smash Bros players.
