Captain Olimar Joins Smash Bros Brawl

Pikmin squad is surpisingly good in a scrap

He may not top your list of videogame characters that you’d like to have on your side in a fight, but Pikmin’s Captain Olimar has nevertheless been confirmed for Nintendo's Super Smash Bros Brawl.

His attacks would appear to involve picking up the various Pikmin and hurling them towards enemies, but aside from a few screens Nintendo hasn't given any more information.

It’s all looking completely deranged, but that’s exactly what we’d expect from Smash Bros!
