Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS debuted just a short while ago during Nintendo's E3 non-presentation. Yet here we are, Nintendo and Namco Bandai unwilling to wait any longer... we're starting the roster announcements right now. Welcome to Super Smash Bros. Olimar and his team of Pikmin! While Olimar isn't starring in Pikmin 3, he's still the star of the franchise. Now fans will be able to beat the crap out of him.
The best screenshot by far is Olimar's little Pikmin standing in front of the giant Kirby, as if he were some sort of Bulborb waiting to devour them. Oh, I hope Kirby can devour the Pikmin. No official movelist for Olimar yet otherwise, but odds are it's going to involve throwing some Pikmin at some other Nintendo characters. It looks like the Pikmin run freely around Olimar, so that could introduce some interesting gameplay.
Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS has no official release date as of yet, though it's planned for 2014. Even yet, knowledge that Super Smash Bros. is coming soon is probably Nintendo's best Wii U console seller right now. Sad face. Hopefully Nintendo keeps the roster announcements monthly!
