It seems like Namco Bandai is finding its Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS roster announcement stride. It was only a short time ago when Zelda was confirmed and we already have another addition to the game. Everybody welcome King Dedede to our next Super Smash Bros.! King Dedede got his start in the franchise in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, but he really feels like he's belonged there since the series started. Ah, it's comforting to know he's back.
For those unfamiliar, King Dedede is a recurring villain in the Kirby series throughout the years. He's the self-proclaimed King of Dream Land and he's a giant bird with a hammer. Dream Land. Makes sense, in a dreamish sort of way. He's not necessarily an evil sort, though it his rather selfish and ego-driven. He does tend to get possessed by "Dark Matter" which tends to be much more evil.
Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS' roster now totals 21 characters, what with the semi-recent additions of Zelda, Rosalina and now King Dedede. How many more do we have to go? Hm, well, it would probably help if we knew the game's release date! Come on, already, Nintendo!
