Palutena announced for Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U

The Miis weren’t the only new characters announced for Smash Bros today. Straight from the Kid Icarus series, the Goddess Palutena is joining the battle!

Her moves seem to largely consist of the support powers from Kid Icarus Uprising, such as the Mega Laser, Counter or Heavenly Light. It makes sense that she would have these abilities, as it was Palutena who was lending Pit those powers in the first place. In this game, she looks to be a fast and well rounded character. She also attacks using a pair of angelic wings she seems to be able to spawn, and she runs by gliding along the ground. Like the other characters in the game she’ll likely be available as an Amibo, although her specific figurine has yet to be revealed.

What do you all think of this? Are you excited to see Palutena’s addition into the game? Does she look like a character you’ll be using? I know I’m excited! I loved Kid Icarus Uprising and I can never see that get enough love!

        Pacman? yes.

        • Ducked

          Pac-Man is a legend, if you know anything about video games.

          • TalesOfBS

            It is a dead body no one wanted on Smash.
            Too bad to see Nintendo allowing Namco to force this crap and use Smash to try to revive a dead character.

          • Ducked

            No one wanted in Smash? I’ve seen a lot of people asking for him. Capcom has killed Mega-Man over the past years and he was added.

          • TalesOfBS

            Then you should have checked out Sakurai’s twitter back in february when the first rumors of palutena, pacman, etc came out.

          • uPadWatcher

            Best crowd reaction when Mega Man uses the Final Smash!

          • http://macromanjr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

            I like Pac-Man, and he is an icon in games, but still, his inclusion isn’t exactly noteworthy stuff to SSB. I would’ve rather seen someone else in his place. Though, I’m sure I’ll play as him at times.

          • Ducked

            Pac-Man is a nice addition, and it’s not like he’s the only one who’s had a rough time. Look at Mega-Man, Capcom has him locked up in a prison somewhere, we haven’t seen him in a nice game since Legends/64. I don’t see what’s with all the hate is for on such a classic character.

    • Arthur Jarret

      PACMAN! Now if they only announced Simon Belmont and Turtles, I’ll have all my favorite 8-bit NES characters in there.

      And possibly Mr.Game ‘n Watch too (he appears in Pac-man’s announcement).

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

  • Ducked

    Wii U Daily needs to hire me. I’m still waiting for articles on Kirby and The Rainbow Curse, and Yoshi Woolly World.

    Don’t really understand this reveal. Fans beg for Chrom, and Shulk and they give us this.

    • Officer Raichu

      well its only tuesday and they probably have one more reveal for the week :D

    • SmashFinale

      Man, people really hated Uprising.

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        Why?

        • MerryBlind .

          I think he was being sarcastic. *I think*.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Look’s like it.

  • Guest

    Why no Hades?

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      He’s Already Dead

  • ThisGuy18

    Dang tough crowd lol i think she is completely badass and i know for a fact that she’s gonna be my new fav character now. Zelda… We had a good run xD

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      only thing that is different from those 2 is: Zelda is a Human and Lady Palutena is a Goddess

  • PS4Rocks

    Hahaha looks like WiiU daily has banned me for parts of WiiUdaily..What a shame! Baised just like i sad..Shameful good thing i found a better site

  • Waluigi Is King

    Honestly I don’t care what characters they add. If they don’t add Wario i am not getting the new super smash bros

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      if He’s come as Secret Character then you must buy it because no one want to Spoil it

  • Casey

    Kid Icarus uprising on virtual console please :)

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      a Kid Icarus: Wii U Sounds Better.

  • ShortyStock

    Who didn’t see that coming?

  • SmashFinale

    So…
    Can anyone guess where my disqus picture comes from? lol.
    Oh well, i expected Magnus but got Palutena. I know a lot of people are satisfied.
    btw, who wants to fight me in Uprising?

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      i want and Magnus is now Assist Trophy

  • Jack

    A lot of people predicted it but Pac-Man is officialy in!!!!! :D He can throw fruit and eat power pellets.

    • Arthur Jarret

      and shit fire hydrants.

  • Gabe Hoffman
    • Ducked

      Big announcement! The feeling of having Mario, Sonic, Mega-Man, and Pac-Man in the same battle…nostalgia!

      • lonewolf88

        omg got to do this fight hahaha hope they have highlights for it to so i can send it to youtube after.

    • Jon

      yeah, I heard about this but I find it odd how it is not on their official site, usually when they do this they put it up on their site within 5 minutes of the announcement. (or directly after a Nintendo direct that did the announcement)

    • Arthur Jarret

      Not to mention the Game ‘n Watch cameo at the end of the reveal movie… will he be back, too?

  • gamingpalooza

    pac-man was announced as well

  • gtosheex

    WARNING! CHALLENGER APPROACHING! —— PAC MAN!

  • Jon

    This announcement kind of disappointed me. not because I don’t like the character but because how they used this as a finisher to their event. They had talked about smash already so the smash hype was dealt with I found. I think they should have found something else to announce at the end with an epic ending.

    • MerryBlind .

      Well they should have announced Pac-Man at that moment instead.

    • J’ohn J’onzz

      …but they did, Miyamoto playing Starfox was the epic ending.

      • Jon

        it was a blurred out screen of him saying he’s working on games… not actually an announcement.

  • http://goggles.sneakygcr.net/ Speed

    She’s talkative! XD I wonder how the game will feel with all of the talking characters at the same time.(Little Mac, Wii Fit Trainer, etc…)

    • MerryBlind .

      haha true that! At least there will always be Link to balance things out with his “whaAH!”, “aaaaaaargh” or “huah!”

    • Guest

      A female character who’s talkative? What are the odds?

      https://warosu.org/data/tg/img/0209/57/1349185077516.jpg

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      It’s only for this trailer to Fill it

  • MerryBlind .

    I think she’s pretty cool. I don’t know the character since I haven’t played Kid Icarus, but she’s kinda cool nonetheless. They really should have announced Bayonetta instead though (and I still hope she will make it in the game).

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Bayonetta isn’t a Character that appears as Playable character in any SSB. Game but she can come in as Trophy like Wonder-Red From: The Wonderfull 101. Besides one of her moves is that she using her Dark Power where she become’s Bald………………………… and Naked. and that’s nuts for a SSB Game.

      • MerryBlind .

        lol ever heard of ‘new’ characters? Palutena isn’t a character that appears as playable character either in SSB, yet she’s going to be in this one.

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          Palutena is a Nintendo Character.
          Bayonetta is from platinum character.

          is that good enough?

          • MerryBlind .

            No, because Mega-Man is a Capcom character, Pac-Man is a Namco character, Sonic is a SEGA character, Snake is a Konami character

            AND

            Bayonetta has become a Nintendo exclusive.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            we already have 3 third-parties and the 4th (if Sakurai do that) is Snake

          • MerryBlind .

            I doubt Snake will make a comeback. Besides, Bayonetta would be a much better fit for Smash than Snake.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            but Sakurai and Kojima are friends

  • http://macromanjr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

    Icarus: “Nice try! But you’re nothing compared to the Underworld Army!”

    Link’s eyes: “Bitch, please!”

    • http://macromanjr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

      Icarus, you might have a goddess, but Link’s got three. Four, if you count Princess Zelda in a bikini. ZING!

      • http://goggles.sneakygcr.net/ Speed

        His name is Pit :)

        • http://macromanjr.blogspot.com/ Brian Lockett

          You know, I came back to correct myself, after writing “Dark Pit” on the next article, and realizing I called Pit “Icarus”? But I’m too late.

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    Welcome to The Super Smash Bros. Lady Palutena

  • Qubonic

    Was dark pit showing up at the end a hint for the next character?

    • J_Joestar

      more likely that it is just a skin for Pit but with more details like modified voice pack.

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        Like Wii Fit Trainer.

  • Qubonic

    It sounds a lot better in the japanese version!

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Link is the only one i heard there that not change his voice… Duh! anyway it was better if you can understand it and it was the Japanese actours that speaks english.

      • Qubonic

        Holy shyt really? Didn’t know that!

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          Some people think futher then this. well i thing 10 Times futher then the people here………. i think
