In what is the latest update to the wildly popular Super Smash Brothers for Wii U and 3DS (abbreviated amongst players as “SSB4“), a well-loved character from the Final Fantasy series will be joining the fray as a playable downloaded character for the game, bringing the total headcount to 53, excluding the Mii fighters.
This newcomer goes by the name of Cloud Strife: his entry was announced officially during the Nintendo Direct session yesterday. Cloud‘s inclusion in the SSB4 playable cast continues the trend of Nintendo incorporating more third-party characters into the game.
Players who may be interested in testing Cloud as a character in Super Smash Brothers will be thrilled to learn that SmashWiki has very kindly provided a compilation of Cloud‘s observable moveset (see here), sourced from footage of the character. He is also set to have an alternate costume option that gives players the choice of letting him don his attire from the Advent Children movie.
