Bayonetta and Corrin are ready to Smash on February 3rd!
Smash Bros. fans rejoice! Corrin and Bayonetta are joining the Super Smash Bros. roster on February 3rd in North America (February 4th in other regions). Considering the nature of the Super Smash Bros. online environment, it should be noted that it is likely that both characters will be joining later in the day.
Bayonetta and Corrin were originally announced for Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U/3DS in December during the Smash Bros. Direct hosted by series director Masahiro Sakurai. While initial reactions were mixed at best, fans of the Super Smash Bros. series are now excited to see the inclusion of these two in the game.
Bayonetta and Corrin offer players new gameplay styles: Bayonetta with her mix of long-ranged and short-ranged combo attacks, and Corrin with grappling medium-range attacks
Bayonetta will cost players $5.99 USD, while Corrin will cost $4.99 USD. Various other bits of content will also be released on the same day, including the several Mii costumes introduced during the Smash Bros. Direct. These costumes include: Bionic Armor, Takamaru from The Mysterious Murasame Castle, Ashley from WarioWare, Gil from The Tower of Druaga, and Tails and Knuckles from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. These can be purchased individually, or as a package for $4.50.
This marks the last in a long line of DLC for Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U/3DS. With this out of the way, it appears that this is the end for the game unless the rumors of the NX Super Smash Bros. title are true.
