Japanese gamers got a very special treat today in the form of an exclsuive Nintendo Direct presentation. The biggest announcement to come out of that Nintendo livestream event was the reveal of Xenoblade Chronicles’ own Shulk making it into Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS.
Shulk heads into the arena with his trusty blade Monado. His moveset consists of some incredible energy blade specific specials, plus his Final Smash calls on the aid of his allies from his RPG adventure. Shulk can jump higher, smash a little bit harder and counter with the best of them when he switches elements.
Check out his reveal trailer above and get a glance at his Xenoblade Chronicles stage, as well as listen to his theme.
This special illustration for Shulk’s introduction to the Super Smash Bros. roster via Monolith Soft looks awesome, doesn’t it? In another Xenoblade Chronicles related announcement, check out the trailer for the 3DS port of the game below.
