Every cloud...

Nintendo's "one more thing" for today's Direct broadcast was something of a shocker - Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife is coming to Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS. No, we didn't see that one coming either.

Possibly the single most famous character in Final Fantasy history, Cloud is a strange choice as he seems more at home on Sony hardware, but you won't find us complaining - he's a seriously cool customer and a fine addition to the game (even if it does mean we have another swordfighter on the roster).

It wasn't stated if Cloud's inclusion was related to the recent ballot to pick a new Smash fighter, but we get the feeling we'll be hearing more news soon - Nintendo has confirmed that a special Smash Bros. Direct will air in December.
