King Dedede announced for Super Smash Bros.

King Dedede

In order to celebrate the launch of Kirby: Triple Deluxe in Japan today, Sakurai’s daily Miiverse Super Smash Bros. post was an announcement of King Dedede’s triumphant return to Super Smash Brothers! All hail the King! The official website was updated as well with a character information page for Dedede along with a gallery of screenshots.

From what we can see in the screenshots, his move set looks to be more or less the same as it was in Brawl, as do his taunts which are also shown off in the images. Also if you look closely at the image where Dedede’s face is right next to the screen, it looks like his alternate pink outfit is returning from Brawl as well.

One thing about him that seems different though are his facial expressions. He seems more animated in this game, with a wider variety of moods and expressions, which themselves are more cartoony and exaggerated. Sakurai himself even describes them as “evocative” in his Miiverse post.

How about you guys? Are you happy to see King Dedede return? Will you be playing as him? Let us know in the comments!

  • http://wiiudaily.com/ Monomon

    Maybe it sounds rude,but I wasn’t too excited about this.I expected him to come to this game

    • Ace

      I also thought that they would be adding him to the game as well. Still, a welcome announcement. This game is going to be AWESOME! Can’t wait to play it.

      • http://wiiudaily.com/ Monomon

        I’m hyped too,but I’m a little bored when they announce the returning characters.I don’t hate any of the characters,nor their moves and abilities and seeing them in HD,but it’s not too exciting.

        • ScrewAttack

          On most I agree with you (aside from Samus, was looking forward to seeing her Other M armour in HD), but I’m quite looking forward to seeing how they do Ganandorf this time.

          • Nabecoat

            Really hoping to see Ganondorf return. Personally I think it’d be awesome to see him in his Samurai form from WindWaker.

          • ScrewAttack

            I was gonna say I expect he will….but Magnus makes an interesting point re: Demise.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            True. Maybe it will be Demise instead by the way?

          • ScrewAttack

            oooo that would be awesome. But instead…..I dunno. I wish we could have both! I think I’d be happy with either. Demise is a truly awesome bad guy. I love how above it all he was.

            This is another game I wish Nintendo would do DLC for. Moar fighters, moar stages, moar modes! MK8, this, 3DW…

          • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

            Impossible, he only appeared in one game while Ganondorf is the main villain of the series.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Demise actually appears in all games. He is incarnated through Ganondorf (accerding to Aonuma). So it could very well be that he finds his way in one or another form.

          • Fierce-Deity Link

            if toon link returned then i think it is safe to assume ganondorf will return.. he is the main villain of the series and i doubt they’d take him out.. maybe Ghirahim since he had a bigger role but even then i see him more as an assist trophy and demise like ridley.. a boss on some game mode or a stage hazard

      • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

        Every character announcement is welcome, whether we see it coming or not.

    • Josiah Parsons

      Any guesses for Meta Night?

      • Guest

        Maybe that too.

    • DragonSilths

      I thought he would be removed. I don’t much care for him. Was useless in Brawl.

      • gtosheex

        actually I’m pretty sure he is considered the best character by pros, (albeit cheapest too haha.) I didn’t care for him much either tho.

        • TaintedXGamer

          if he comes back i presume they will rebalance prior to his Brokeness in Brawl

    • LopsidedPasta

      I’m really waiting for Ness! After playing Earthbound on the Wii U VC, I fell in love. That, and Ness has always been one of my better characters :)

  • Josiah Parsons

    Kirby’s power clone is back! I can’t wait! He’s looking great in HD.

  • Josiah Parsons

    Check out the detail on the Rocket Hammer!

  • Jack5221

    Hail to the king baby, DeDeDe is back!!!

    • readypembroke

      Nice Duke Nukem reference!

      • Fifi Larns

        I was thinking of Scourge from the sonic comics lol .

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Mega Man was the only announced character that caught my attention. As always, it’s welcoming to see other characters revealed.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Luigi was kind of a chock. Never saw that one coming :D

      • Lord Carlisle

        *shock

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Thanks. Chock is the swedish way of spelling it, got mixed up.

          • Lord Carlisle

            Well, at least I now know that interesting fact.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Yeah, im sure it made your day. I gave you this wisdom just because of your kindness to point out my errors. Next time it will cost you.

    • http://waluigi.com/ Waluigi

      Wa!!!

      • Squid

        No please,

        • Norfair20X5

          Don’t talk to Waluigi like that!

          • Squid

            Adding Waluigi is like adding Daisy, not that he’d be a clone, but he’s a character that isn’t relevant to the main series. People think this about Rosalina but however, she has been in a more impact full game than Daisy. Adding Daisy would be like saying the duck hunt dog should be in the game.

          • Norfair20X5

            As with Ridley, Duck Hunt Dog is actually pretty awesome in SSB Crusade. v0.8.4 has these specials and DHD’s special is rad.

      • Lord Carlisle

        You know, it’s funny.

        http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS0uvmfm9ylFyJiIrlTY92BCwg9vuXG7tT64vi9IzxzI280TBaBQAPYA-QI

        This guy deserves to be in Smash more than you do.

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        No No No No NO

  • starwars360

    He is one of coolest fat characters in video games for fighting games. Hahahaha.

    Anyway look forward SSB 4 for Wii U so much!!!

  • Laud

    Totally irrelevant..

    Hey guys, it’s my birthday today. :D

    You know what that means right? It’s time for me to beg!

    First I’d like to thank Udaily and it’s authors for being awesome. -applause-

    Now, I’ve been around for a while.. Actually, I’ve been here since the start of the website. SO I DEMAND SOME RECOGNITION, YOU HEAR ME UDAILY? I WANT STONES CARVED, PORTRAITS PAINTED, ESHOP CARDS IN MY NAME.

    I know that stuff might be impossible for you guys so I’d like an E3 pass, you guys think you can get me that? I’d love you forever.

    I love you too Ashley ;) (I haven’t forgotten about you.. never..)

    Okay, back to depression and sleep because college life means your entire family forgets about you.

    • Rick Valenta
      • Laud

        Well, I am trying to seek attention so I see no fault in your post..

        However, IS IT NOT DESERVED? I, THE VETERAN UDAILY POSTER/CONTRIBUTOR DO NOT DESERVE RECOGNITION OR BEAUTIFUL WOMEN?

        I DESERVE ALL AND MORE.

        ESPECIALLY, THAT E3 BADGE.

        • Rick Valenta

          I did say you were doing it right!! lol

        • Lusunup

          I also been hear since the site was available… but you don’t see me acting like this…

          • gtosheex

            I think he’s drunk.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          How much does it cost?

    • Keyser

      Happy birthday! You’ll get your portrait in the mail

    • majora :D

      Totally irrelevant to your comment, but is your icon a 3d version of dA’s :la: emote?

    • The Clockwork Being

      Happy Birthday Laud!!!

    • jesuschristmarie

      I cringed.

  • Flawless Victory

    Not bad.

  • palomino blue

    Loves me some DeDeDe

  • Rick Valenta

    I know this will never happen, but Travis Touchdown from No More Hero’s would be awesome. And while you’re at it a No More Hero’s HD collection, and new game, for the Wii U. And a new Bully. That is all…

    • Crocket

      Since I know that it’s a long shot to get Travis in the game I’ll be happy to see him as an assist trophy at least. And a No More Heroes 3 sounds amazing!

  • Keyser

    They take too long to announce characters for this game. Either there won’t be many characters, they won’t announce them until the end, or the release date is far away…

    • Yen

      They don’t have to reveal them AT ALL you know. Be happy he’s giving daily screenshots and occasional updates.

      • ScrewAttack

        I’d rather they didn’t announce them, or at least not all of them. Just the opening roster. I miss the surprise the first two had, when that foe approaching screen popped up!

        • Yen

          I feel like even if they hide most of them, people will just spoil them day 1 anyway.

          • ScrewAttack

            That’s true. A sad result of the digital age.

        • DragonSilths

          Don’t look at the updates then? And we still don’t actually know who is unlockable and how to unlock them. So you would do something and 1 of them shows up and you don’t know which one it will be.

          • ScrewAttack

            Yeah I try to avoid them. Not too much of a problem for me as I tend to forget about it fairly quick.
            That’s true, but really I’m just expecting the same as in previous titles.

        • Nostalgic_Chaos

          Hopefully he wont reveal the secret characters as well. I’m sure there will be some surprises left this time.

    • majora :D

      OR they are saving some of the characters, so you have some surprises once you actually play the game

      • DragonSilths

        Some get revealed when games come out in Japan. Yoshi will be revealed when Yoshi’s New Island or Yoshi Land U come out.

    • Pikachief

      There wont be many characters. A little smaller than the Brawl roster I’m thinking.

      • DragonSilths

        36-40.

      • Nostalgic_Chaos

        It will definitely be more than the Brawl roster. The fact that so many have been revealed so far already tells us there is going to be more, then plus any secret characters as well.

    • DragonSilths

      21 characters are revealed so far, plus the characters we know will be back aka, Jiggly Puff, Ness, Yoshi, and Captain Falcon that’s 25 in total. There will be about 40 characters at maximum in Smash Bros. So that leave up to 15 more. Probably will get 3 character reveals at E3 or something.

  • Random12multi

    Am I the only one hoping they added Galacta Knight

  • MetroidZero

    Waiting patiently for Zero Suit Samus’s reveal. :)

  • bizzy gie

    I love Kirby more than the next guy (the best character to have ever graced the SSB franchise), but we really don’t need King DeDeDeDeDeDeDeDeDeDeDeDe. He’s just a watered down version of Kirby. For example, he can suck people too but can’t take their powers.

    When I suck him up as Kirby, I actually LOSE power because I take King’s suck-but-doesn’t-take-power ability.

    He should have been xed (and all the other dual characters) to make room for more new guys.

    • Madmagican

      Come on, the only things Kirby and DeDeDe have in common are the ability to suck up enemies and the ability to fly
      Every other move is different; also King DeDeDe just has so much character :)

      • bizzy gie

        They both also have mallets.

        • Madmagican

          And they both love to eat but that’s not as much of a moveset thing as it is a straight-up game thing

          • bizzy gie

            It sort of is because eating people is a moveset both characters have although Kirby’s is much better.

    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      I don’t really like Dedede either, for a variety of reasons. However, Sakurai created Kirby, so we’re going to see the whole of the Kirby characters return. IKirby is Sakurai’s franchise, so they’re always going to be in Smash Bros.

      • bizzy gie

        I’m just hoping we don’t get 3-5 new characters and then everybody else is a return.

  • Squid

    Hey, Dedede reminds me of Right. Back At Ya! Here.

  • Sean Michael Davis
    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      This would be awesome

      • Sean Michael Davis

        its all i hope for for this game. megaman was step one, now for complete happiness, bomberman needs to be put in.

        • Nostalgic_Chaos

          There is absolutely no reason why Bomberman shouldn’t be in Smash Bros. Bomberman has been around since the early 80’s and is a Nintendo veteran in his own right. He is like the least requested Nintendo character, and an underrated candidate for the Smash roster, yet he makes the most sense to join the game.

          This is one thing I have never understood…
          Maybe because the younger generation wouldn’t have played many of the Bomberman games. Or maybe because they’re not as popular as say, Mario… I really don’t know.
          In my opinion, Bomberman is the type of character that should have come in since the N64 version of Smash, that early on, because he was a lot more well known as a game character around that period of time.

          Bomberman, unfortunately is losing popularity as the years go by.

    • LopsidedPasta

      I feel like there wouldn’t be enough moves for him.

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Never going to happen

  • TheBrainJemin

    Is it me, or does King DeDeDe look a bit like the version of himself from Kirby: Right Back at Ya?

    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      Other people have mentioned this also.

  • The_Last_Metroid

    Rayman please! Anybody who’s played Origins or Legends with friends knows he’s good fighting material!

    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      I doubt Rayman will ever be in any Smash Bros game. There were only some exceptions for a couple of 3rd party characters to join, that’s because they are game icons, such as Sonic and Snake. I just don’t think Rayman is yet on that level, even though he is a loved character.

      I don’t see Sakurai thinking him worthy enough to join, ever. Sakurai is extremely picky when it comes to Smash Bros, and I don’t blame him.

  • Unchained

    THANKS NINTENDO, for screwing super smash brothers

  • NkoSekirei

    seriously nintendo give us captain falcon,ganondorf,and zero suit samus alrdy or their be some pissed off smash fans polishing their pitchforks and torches.

    • Nostalgic_Chaos

      They’re obviously going to be in the game anyway.

      • NkoSekirei

        well captain falcon has been in smash since the first one and they should of announced him alrdy and ganondorf didnt join the roster till melee and then zero suit samus for brawl but smash bros creator said theirs some characters wont be coming back for the new one which me and many others are concern about some of our favorites.

        • Nostalgic_Chaos

          The whole Smash Bros fanbase needs to really stop worrying about these things. Yoshi hasn’t even been announced yet… Give Sakurai time and have patience. There is absolutely no rush to introduce every character when we want him to. As the director, he will do it in his own time. Captain Falcon isn’t going anywhere.

          • NkoSekirei

            im just expressing my opinion and concern like many others and i do like the characters that they announce so far.

          • Nostalgic_Chaos

            Like many others? Any long time fan of the franchise knows that certain characters will always come back. It’s pretty much common knowledge dude, and nothing whatsoever to be anxious about.

    • ThisGuy18

      I think she probly will be cuz in the trailer samus does her final smash. I forget if it showed her suit starting to crumble off but chances are it will. If it doesn’t theenn that would suck lol

  • Kirbyomega

    Don’t think its the pink costume, I think its the weird lighting from the SMG stage

  • Yoshi

    They’ll be announcing me alongside the New Yoshi’s Island launch

    • Yoshi

      P.S.***

      • Yoshi

        I want the DE!

  • Mario

    Oh Dedede. No matter what game you’re on, you will always be that fat silly penguin, king and arch-rival of Kitrby that everyone loves. Won’t you? Oh well! Welcome back ^^your majesty^^ to the fight!

  • Kevin Wickham

    You know i am ^-^

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    Maybe a new gourmet race remix?

  • sup3rnoah

    I want another big surprise. Not from Miiverse, but perhaps the big January Direct or if the games not out by E3. No one was expecting WFT, I bet Sakurai has more tricks up his sleeve.

  • wiimenonowiiu

    Cant wait for this game i want to falcon punch the king in the face lol

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    eeehhh hi dedede?

  • ThisGuy18

    I think it’d be pretty cool if they added back Pokemon Trainer, never lost with that guy – but with 3 new pokemon – with Fennekin as one of them. Probly won’t happen but it would be nice to see xD

  • Cahone

    This just shows that the game is 100% completed, and is just being delayed to spread out the titles.

  • readypembroke

    I remember beating this fool alot of times in Kirby games

  • Rick Valenta

    Reminds me a lot like Atari? Are you retarded?

  • Kenshin0011

    I honestly feel sorry for what you probably are in real life. Coming onto every wii u article just to bash it when you clearly do not like Nintendo. Must suck to be you, so futile and puny and pointless you spend your life

  • ScrewAttack

    lol NintendoSwagFan…..reminds me a lot of a bottom feeder.

  • NkoSekirei

    hey troll i hear ur troll buddies didnt like the sunlight on the hobbit maybe u should try it

  • ScrewAttack

    Come back and try again when you develop a brain.

  • ScrewAttack

    You’d be surprised how much air heads like yourself can do. Look! You’re operating a computer! That’s a tragic miracle in itself.

  • Random12multi

    No…

  • NkoSekirei

    no u should change ur name to jack@$$ more like it
