Sakurai unveiled on MiiVerse Wednesday:” “The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!” He also stated that the Meta Knight returning is not the same one as before.
“Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.”
Meta Knight, from the Kirby universe, made his first Smash Bros. appearance in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for Wii. He quickly became the top-tier character in his very own tier, and still remains #1. Due to this, he is usually banned from tournaments.
