It's been a busy 24 hours in the world of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, with European reveals of a 3DS XL console bundle and a whole host of eShop discounts; Nintendo of America is yet to follow up with equivalent details at the time of writing, but we hope it's merely a matter of time.

The first reveal, however, was the return of Meta Knight, a character loved, loathed and feared in — perhaps — equal measure. His inclusion will prompt fears that he'll be somewhat overpowered, but the proof will be in the final games; button mashers like this writer are surely quietly delighted at his arrival. Forgetting arguments about movesets, he just looks rad, in any case.

Now that the dust has settled and we're all breathing again, it seems a good time to share the batch of ten screenshots posted for Meta Knight's arrival on the official website. They're below, so enjoy and let us know what you think.
