Slice! Dice!

It's been a pretty awesome week for all Smash Bros. fans, all told. A short video has made its way to our screens with an announcement from Masahiro Sakurai, stating that the new Mewtwo DLC for Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS would be on its way "pretty soon".

As always, Nintendo has more surprises for its fans, with Sakurai also sharing some more interesting news. Apparently, Takamaru from The Mysterious Murasame Castle was considered as a fighter for the incredible Smash Bros. franchise, but did not make the cut due to his unfamiliarity with Nintendo fans. It's a shame, but understandable - Takamaru is virtually unknown outside of Japan because the game he starred in never got released in the west.

As you might have already noticed, fans have been going crazy on Miiverse, requesting fighters that aren't even Nintendo characters. If you had your way, who would you want to be your ultimate fighter, Nintendo character or not? Write your comments below and let's see if we can predict the next Smash Bros. combatant.
