Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS can't be accused of playing it safe and predictable, with Sakurai-san and his team utilising the lucrative money-making of DLC to go a bit nuts with its new character additions. We've already had Ryu, yet the recent announcement of Final Fantasy's Cloud was on a whole new scale of the unexpected. We doubt many predicted that, even if plenty had wished for it.

Nintendo of Europe sees the hype, anyway, and has shared some nice screens of the fighter in action. Cast your eyeballs over them below, with one showing off the accompanying Midgar stage.


We'll no doubt get a release date for Cloud and some other tasty details in December's Smash Bros. Direct / Special Presentation. That'll be a broadcast to savour.
