Lucario confirmed for Super Smash Bros.

lucario-7

The daily update for the Super Smash Bros. website has revealed that Lucario will be returning for the new Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. You can check out the full gallery below. Here’s what Masahiro Sakurai had to say on Miiverse about the reveal:

“Pic of the day. The Heroic Aura Pokemon, Lucario, joins the battle. We’ve increased the influence of Aura this time, so a damaged Lucario is truly a force to be reckoned with.”

Once again it looks like we’ve got a slight mechanic change.

    Apple has had the business model nintendo should be following. Digital downloaders should have a cloud account to redownload whenever they need to, and they should have NES games play across both 3DS and Wii U with a single purchase. Like how I can play iPhone games on both ipad and iPhone

    • Sdudyoy

      Then people might share accounts, Nintendo wouldn’t make as much money, I agree with you, I just can’t see Nintendo doing it, although there is no reason that we can’t play the same virtual console games on both consoles, they should do it now that we have unified accounts.

  • Kuromad

    Wondering if we can get his mega evolution :)

    • Josiah Parsons

      Epic! Lucario with Red Dreds!

    • Squid

      What if when he was damaged enough he’d mega evolve?

  • Ducked

    Omg, why isn’t Kratos or Master Chief in Smash Bros!

    • Pablo Lavín

      lol

    • TaintedXGamer

      Go home Donald you’re drunk. And if you’re alreadlyhome… Go sleep.

      • Ducked

        I made it so obvious that I’m joking..

    • RichM

      Why not add the character from the new IP? Lol. Then we can all wonder who this random character is that no one knows. Just keep it a secret till Miyamoto reveals the actual IP and then we’ll all be like…OH! Now I see.

      • Ducked

        Ha I agree

  • Sdudyoy

    He should Mega evolve when He uses His final smash.

  • WarioForever

    MEWTWO FTW!

    • Alex

      I hope Nintendo put Mewtwo and even Zoarark as skins for Lucario since there attacks are very similar.

      • TaintedXGamer

        Mega lucario as alternate skin isn’t a bad idea…..

  • Super Buu

    I was expecting Zoroark to be his replacement but perhaps this means we’ll see his badass Mega Evolution.

  • SuperSonicBrawler

    I wanted Mewtwo…

  • Simon Stevens

    Starting to miss the days when we were actually surprised by the characters when we played the game, they certainly spoiled Mario 3D world for me, knowing I was going to get Rosalina rather than be surprised by it :/ I hate the games industry, it’s been well and truly overblown and spoilt.

    • TaintedXGamer

      So you got spoiled about a secret playable character in 3D world. When I finally get enough money I’m still getting 3D world, and when I do I’ll be enjoying my experience playing through the game. Just like how I first played super Mario galaxy. Either way Lucario was a main next to my peach, Mr game and watch. wario not in my main since I had my arse kicked by a far better wario player recently on brawl online.

      • Simon Stevens

        Think you misunderstood what I said, I was in love with the game playing through it regardless of what I knew of it but it would have been a lovely surprise had I not known about it.

    • ChubbiestLamb6

      I think the biggest difference between those days and now is that you spend way more time on the internet looking at sites that have information about games. I really doubt game developers are snail-mailing you innocent-looking letters that actually contain spoilers. While I have my own complaints about the current state of the game industry–many of which are the result of the internet–this complaint is one that could easily be avoided.

      • Simon Stevens

        That’s a great point and back then I never used the internet, unless it was for porn, but what 14 year old boy didn’t, I have many of complaints towards the state were in, just look at how IGN have changed, these days there entitled, pompus and clearly biased, but on this case, it’s hard to avoid, you google Wii U and it’s straight in your face, in the title even in Rosalinas case, had no choce but to know.

        • SuperSonicBrawler

          Hehe, porn. :P

    • Squid

      Biggest surprise was Megaman. I almost peed myself in excitement.

      • Simon Stevens

        I love Megaman, would have loved him more had he actually have been a surprise, what’s left after they’ve announced all these secret characters?, it’s really put me off tbh

  • Norfair20X5

    I know some people like playing as him but fuck me, really? Does anyone else here think Lucario is a dumb pokemon?

    • DragonSilths

      Nope.

    • Mario

      Not really.

    • Squid

      He has one of the best designs.

      • Norfair20X5

        I’m sorry, Squid, I think Oddish begs to differ.

  • TaintedXGamer

    F###Yeah! Now tell me his final smash is his mega evolution or at least give him as new one lol.

  • RichM

    I guess there’s no surprise there. So, rather than all these character reveals…why not reveal the month it’s releasing. You got me ok! I’m buying this game. Now take my money and release it already! We’ve had SO MUCH news about it you would think it’s done. Are you planning to pull an Apple and say it’s releasing today?

  • Vile-Okami

    Still hoping Zoroark shows up as well. I hope Jigglypuff doesn’t come back.

    • DragonSilths

      WTF? Jigglypuff is 1 of the original 12 she will be back. And I love Jigglypuff better then Zoroark.

      • Vile-Okami

        Jigglypuff has never had any real relevance. I’d just prefer to see her step aside for another character. Smash always has plenty of playable Pokemon characters, and then they get all the Pokeballs.

        • DragonSilths

          Jigglypuff is a bit well known. In the anime always putting people to sleep and drawing on their faces. Plus the float ability like Kirby is nice. I love the move where you put yourself to sleep but line it up right and boom major damage to your opponent.

        • Squid

          Jiggly has some potential to be changed with it being Fairy.

  • NkoSekirei

    crossing fingers for captain falcon,ganondorf and zero suit samus come back.

  • Møhåmmęd Jårmøn

    New Final Smash will have to be Mega Evolution :)

  • Superstick98

    Seeing how he looks in this game is making me wish there was an HD Pokémon game. Sigh. One day… XD

  • Josh111111

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Jack5221

    Lucario in HD looks badass!!

    • Mario

      I know! I mean, look at that fur of his! It looks so real!

  • Deadpool U

    Yes Lucario is favorite Pokémon right next to Charizard!
    https://i.chzbgr.com/maxW500/5657240320/h2BABD76C/

  • Mario

    Here comes the Mewtwo fans ready to complain.

  • lonewolf88

    lucarios smash should be him turning into the mega evaluation :D

  • Clel

    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY!

  • Zanzama

    Hell yes! My favorite character returns!
    http://www.reactiongifs.com/r/dc.gif

  • DragonSilths

    What people don’t get was Mewtwo was added in melee at the last minute. He was never originally planned to be in. We need Jigglypuff revealed before any other Pokémon related characters show up.

    • Mario

      He was also supposed reappear in Brawl. But he was drop out for unexplained reasons.

      • DragonSilths

        Unexplained reasons…Sakurai wanted him out. He didn’t think he belonged anymore. Since he was rushed in the 1st place he got to see he wasn’t a good choice.

        • Mario

          Maybe…

    • Squid

      Yeah that confuses me, he said not so long ago he’s interested in putting Mewtwo in.

      • DragonSilths

        Maybe he simply changed his mind.

  • Kenshin0011

    Eh, they really should have brought back Mewtwo, especially because of how relevant Mewtwo is again because it was a flagship Mega Evolved pokemon in the game that just came out….a pity…

    • Squid

      Lucario was arguably more relevant. It was a gift Pokemon, you learn mega evolution in it. And in the beginning of the game it constantly appears.

  • e_rocket

    Wonder Red and Blue for SB!!!! and Bayonetta will be grate ;)

    • Leo Lima

      Please

  • Drac

    Wonderful 101 characters?

  • Moreck

    He looks so cool in HD!

  • TaintedXGamer

    okay….Gimme Rayman now

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    Hi Lucario :D

  • Skelterz

    TINGLE IN SMASH BROS FTW!! HE COULD LIKE FLOAT WITH BALOOOOOONNNSSSS AHHHHHHH

    • Squid

      He would be OP!

      • Skelterz

        I DON’T KNOW WHAT OP IS BUT IM EXCITED!!!!!!

  • Nicolas Dorion

    Is this game just gonna be brawl with only 4 different characters? because it looks like it

  • Hatake86

    I hope they odd Krystal next ^^

  • triplegamer3K .

    YELLOW DEVIL!
    Also…anyone else think he’s not a boss,but a stage gimmick?

  • Shota

    goku. v-jump namco bandai make it happen

  • Ducked

    And Pacman

  • http://waluigi.com/ Waluigi

    Gotta Catch ‘Em All

  • rp17

    I think Mewtwo has a good chance too from what Sakurai said.

    “Lucario joined the battle for the first time in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which was released six years ago. The production staff of Brawl worked really hard to expand the character roster–without their efforts, Lucario probably never would have joined the battle.”

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    This game ain’t big enough for the two of ‘em apparently.

    http://fc05.deviantart.net/fs42/i/2009/140/1/1/Lucario_vs_Mewtwo_duel_guns_by_CobraCalhoun.jpg

  • DragonSilths

    Goku????? GTFO JUST GET THE FUCK OUT. Same with people who want Ridley, Mii’s and fucking Pac-man.

  • Ducked

    I’d love to see Rayman in Smash bros! And I won’t have access to a computer until tomorrow.

  • Josiah Parsons

    lol.
    Games today take themselves sooooo seriously.

  • Marcos Parreira

    It can be anything, you’re right. But I think it will be something graphical and HD and that stuff… (Like some Metroid). Why? Because that is the public Nintendo hasn’t reach out yet. And I can almost bet you it’s gonna look nice, really nice, ps4/x1 actual graphics. Because as the ps4 and x1 can do a lot more than they are showing now, Wii U can too. And of course only Nintendo can show that. Remember Zelda U tech demo? I think they want to get that, show the world that BigN is still BIG.

  • Ducked

    That’s cool

  • DragonSilths

    I swear to god you cant be serious. If you are then please go drown in the ocean.

  • Squid

    Klonoa would be a better Namco rep, He also has Pacman on his hat.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Nah, Ridley would actually work

  • Jordan Fata

    The Ridley that would be in smash bros isn’t the actual Ridley. It would be a doll/trophy of Ridley that is turned to life by Master Hand. So any character could work. Olimar is smaller than a quarter and he was upscaled and is the size of his Smash Bros trophy. Look at the trophies of Ridley in Melee and Brawl. That would roughly be his size in the next game if playable. He would be really fun to play as. He is a space dragon that would be very agile with many projectile fire based attacks and bite, wing, claw, and tail attacks. Lots of potential with his moveset. I would love him to be playable.

  • Mario

    Why are they using guns? Can’t they just use their moves?

  • Sacrontine

    Son goku is out of the line, when he yell all his surroundings get destroyed, if he says ka-me-ha-me-ha, the stage would dissapear, also the world the stage is in.

  • DarkYoshi

    You dont think he’s a bit big? And besides, he can fly, thats fairly OP.

  • DragonSilths

    No he cant work. There is not a single reason anyone can give that would be credible. In every game he is in he is HUGE. He is NON SCALEABLE.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Yeah, Ridley is kinda huge, but so is Bowser.

    http://static1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100828034842/nintendo/en/images/6/68/Dark_world_64.jpg

    http://goodkindofgeek.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/smash_bros_wii_u_mario_vs_bowser1.jpg

    Bowser’s size is obviously scaled down in the Super Smash Bros series.

    Not to mention Olimar is only one inch tall in his games, so size is not a problem at all.

    And last time I checked, Pit, Meta Knight and Charizard can fly too and Kirby and King Dedede can float.

    Sakurai could definitely include Ridley if he wanted to.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Good point, but I guess that’s the joke.

  • Mario

    lol.

  • That guy who hates Spike

    The difference is that Bowser has been in multiple sizes. Ridley has only been in that “Smash” size once in the 25 years of the franchise.

  • DragonSilths

    Bowser is scalable. In every game he is in he is a different size. Ridley is FIXED as a HUGE dragon like creature that can pick Samus up. Ridley CANNOT be scaled down.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart
  • Alex Kelecich

    The 2nd pic sort of looks like mega evolving too.

  • rp17

    you forgot this

  • DragonSilths

    A tiny Ridley is ridicules. And hurts the character fame. Ridle does not, and will not ever work. PERIOD. One thing that really grinds my gears is when gamers think all these characters can work. WRONG. Gamers are WRONG 99% of the time. They cant see a potential character in every sense and every condition it needs to meet.

  • DragonSilths

    Bowser is a different size in every game he is in…Ridley is not. He is always the same HUGE size. Ridley has to be able to grab Samus in his hand.

  • CEObrainz

    Bowser is not to big for Smash, if you consider most games where he is a “Normal” size before any sort of transformation or magic power up is given to him, it’s understandable why he can easily be added to smash. Adding Mii’s and Pacman would work if Sakurai implemented them right, he did the same with Wii Fit Trainer after all. Rayman isn’t a Nintendo exclusive or first party character, I couldn’t really see him being in this game unless some deal was struck…

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart
  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Well, Sakurai did imply that he was considering Mewtwo to return.

    http://wiiudaily.com/2013/06/mew-two-in-super-smash-bros/

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    I disagree, just look at these hacks below, it works perfectly fine to me. And this is fan made, the actual developers would obviously do a better job, as well as providing him his own moveset. If a second character of the Metroid series was to be added, Ridley would definitely be the best candidate.

    However, I doubt Ridley will be playable in SSB4 since Sakurai implied that he will appear as a stage hazard instead, so I hope you are happy. But if Sakurai wanted to make him playable, he definitely could whether you like it or not.

    P.S.: Goku, as seen in the second video, definitely doesn’t belong to smash, though.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    But in most games, Bowser is HUGE, especially in the main Super Mario series. And Ganondorf is easily twice as tall as Link, that’s not the case in Brawl and Melee.

    http://static.gamesradar.com/images/mb/GamesRadar/us/Features/2009/06/Link%20and%20Ganon/Finished/Smash_Comp–article_image.jpg

    Anything, and I mean anything, can be downscaled, whether it is a character or a stage element. Ridley could still be the biggest character model in the game if he was downscaled.

    Squirtle is not supposed be so big in comparison to Pokémon Trainer. He’s only one foot tall after all, he should be able to fit in PT’s backpack. And yet, nobody goes crazy about that, only when it’s about Samus and Ridley.

    http://www.ssbwiki.com/images/3/33/Squirtle_VPs.png

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    I couldn’t agree more.

  • DragonSilths

    I couldn’t disagree more.

  • Squid

    *Releases pokemon*

  • CEObrainz

    The nes game was like that due to hardware restraints, which makes sense when you compare that game with Super.

    Snake was a character meant to be in since melee, im sure konami asked for that personally. Sonic is in due to a deal with Sega and Megaman is in because Nintendo were like “why not?”

    It’s not that rayman shouldn’t be in smash 4 but rather there is no big reason to add him to the roster.

  • DragonSilths

    No Dark Samus or Rundas or that purple female hunter would be a better pick. And hacks…is that, that retarded Project M bullshit? I don’t support hacking of any kind. And yes it looks silly. Tiny Ridley…pff that’s not Ridley anymore. Its a tiny dragon.

  • DragonSilths

    That’s just a camera angle. Nice try. Ganondorf is a tall MAN who is say 6 feet tall. Link is a TEENAGER who is maybe 5 foot 5.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    No really, Ganondorf is this tall and the downscaling is significant, see ? Clearly more than a seven inches difference and Link is actually a young adult, or at the very least very close to adulthood.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Damn you disqus, one copy of the same image was enough !

  • DragonSilths

    Link is an elf…elf’s are small. Put a regular person like Shiek next to Ganondorf or the King of Hyrule next to him and he is about average size.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Rundas and Gandrayda only appear in one game, Dark Samus only appears in the Prime series while Ridley is the main rival in the series and appears as a boss in most games. He is the most important character in the series after Samus, so his appearance as a playable character makes perfect sense.

    And I don’t see you complain about an oversized Pikachu and Squirtle, while their official height has always been about one foot.

    http://www.ssbwiki.com/images/3/33/Squirtle_VPs.png

    http://www.ssbwiki.com/images/7/70/ThunderSSB4.png

    And no, these hacks have nothing to do with Project M.

  • Reality check

    You whine way too much…

  • DragonSilths

    Its a bit harsh. But the truth is a character can only go one way. Its a one way street . Characters can be made bigger, NOT SMALLER. And Pokémon were pixels for so long. There was never really much to compare them to except other Pokémon.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Link is a Hylian. Hylians are identical to humans except for their pointed ears. In fact, Link is taller than, or as tall as many of the adult Humans in Twilight Princess, such as Ashei, who is about as old as Link.

    Sheik is about as tall as Link, both have an average size while Ganondorf looks like a giant compared to Link.

  • Ducked

    Wasn’t much of a Klona fan

  • Jordan Fata

    What are you disagreeing with? Olimar is extremely small and was upscaled to be the size of a fighter. Ridley is large and can be downscaled just as Olimar was upscaled. The fighters in Smash Bros are dolls/trophies of the actual video game characters. These are facts, not opinions.

  • disqus_4f2jLLkRpR

    Its a one way street. Characters can be up scaled, NOT DOWNSCALED. Ever see a game be downscaled? Doesn’t work well…up scaled is done all the time. Olimar could be made bigger he is still small compared to Link and such so you don’t notice it. A small Ridley EVERYONE would notice and be like….this doesn’t look right. As for facts well sorry to say but in my presence all facts are null and void.

  • DragonSilths

    nah, just the right amount.
