Bayonetta Smash Bros.png

Masahiro Sakurai's Final Presentation for Super Smash Bros. has finished, and the final reveal and challenger was none other than PlatinumGames' Bayonetta; a February 2016 release is the target. In addition to the fighter there'll also be an Umbra Clock Tower stage, which replicates the iconic scene that's familiar from the first Bayonetta.

She was perhaps a surprise choice, with Masahiro Sakurai saying she was the number one Fighter Ballot choice in Europe, top five in North America and worldwide winner. There was a caveat, though; these were the standings among 'realisable' characters, meaning some would have simply been off the table for licensing reasons.

Bayonetta's moveset looked pretty interesting, utilising many of the familiar moves and styles - including Bullet Arts - from the source games. A Wii U purchase of the DLC will include new music tracks and trophies for Jeanne, Rodin and Ceresa; each individual version (character + stage) will be $5.99 / €5.99 / £5.39, or it'll be $6.99 / €6.99 / £6.29 for the same DLC on both Wii U and 3DS.

Are you excited about Bayonetta coming to Super Smash Bros. next year? Let us know.
