Super Smash Bros. 4 has several new characters and features to ensure your Smash Bros. experience on the Wii U is unlike any previous one. One of the biggest announcements, which should calm a lot of fan requests, is the addition of Miis. Of course, since this is Nintendo, they couldn’t just say you can now fight with your Mii in Smash Bros. Instead, they revealed it with a very interesting battle.

We aren’t sure how deep the customization of Miis goes, but they have three different classes and a variety of outfits. We hope you can make your Mii look like anyone you want, within reason, of course. And the custom movesets, which will only be useable against friends and in local play, add another level of depth to this game. We can’t wait to try it out.

The next characters revealed for Smash Bros. 4 were Lady Palutena and Pac-Man. Kid Icarus fans are delighted to see Palutena in the game, while the reaction to Pac-Man has varied between joy and all-out hate.

Smash Bros. 4 will also make use of NFC figurines called Amiibos, similar to those used for Skylanders. These special Figure Players can be brought into a match by touching the figure to the GamePad. They level up as you use them, adapt their gameplay based on their opponents’ behaviors, and store their data in the Amiibo figure, so this should definitely add an interesting twist.

Many fans are excited about this game, and there are still more unannounced characters to look forward to. Who are you hoping to see in the roster?
