The long awaited follow-up to Super Smash Bros. Brawl has finally arrived, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. The folks at Nintendo were proud to unleash the new title during their E3 2013 press conference this morning. A brand new trailer premiered along with a few updates on what players can expect from the game. After the break, watch the first Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS trailer and see which characters will be returning and who will be joining the roster.
Originally announced at E3 2011 at the debut of the Wii U, fans have eagerly awaited for this next installment to become a reality. Many characters from previous entries have been confirmed to make their return, such as Mario, Link, Kirby, Donkey Kong, Fox, Samus, Pikachu, Pit and Bowser. The original roster held 12 characters, Melee 26, and Brawl 37; it is still up in the air as to how many characters we will see this time around. But we do know of one new character ready to come to town.

Nintendo was not shy in introducing Villager from Animal Crossing. The new trailer below features a tease of Villager segueing into gameplay footage of the 3DS version and Wii U version. Right as the action hits a climax with a battle between Bowser and Mario, the villager makes his big debut in the battle zone. It’s a pretty action packed trailer, showcasing what the little guy is made of. Check it out:
The graphics look very sharp; what we should come to expect from Nintendo now that it has a console up to par with current-gen systems. The variations of attacks that Villager has look fresh compared to some of the characters that have similar fighting styles. He appears to consist of mainly close range attacks and it will be interesting to see his full plethora of moves.
What do you think of Villager? Do you feel he is the right choice for a new Super Smash Bros. game?
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS will unfortunately not hit shelves until 2014.
