King Dedede has been confirmed as a challenger in the new Super Smash Bros. titles on the Wii U and 3DS, the latest in a number of recent additions as the roster fills out. His appearance was always on the cards after his role in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, with his weight and ready-to-use weapon making him a useful character.
Kirby was confirmed in the initial lineup, of course, and with Kirby: Triple Deluxe hitting 3DS this year King Dedede always seemed to be a likely inclusion; the fact that he's an iconic villain in a franchise that Masahiro Sakurai helped create wouldn't have done any harm, either. We now have to wait to see if the rather useful — arguably too useful — Meta Knight joins in.
Above and below are all of the Smash Bros. screens of King Dedede released so far. Are you glad that he's been included once again?
