The Blue Blur will be joining th Blue Bomber (that’s Mega Man, guys) as the second third-party member of the upcoming game’s roster. Sonic was also one of the guests in Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii – begging the question: Will some of the other third-party all-stars will show their faces once again?

**Smug jerk. Get a job, you hooligan!**

No release date was given for the hotly anticipated Smash Bros. sequel, but the roster continues to expand. The game is expected to release for the Wii U and 3DS in 2014.

The Nintendo Direct also had some more information about Pikmin 3 DLC, the delay of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and the announcement of a new Kirby game coming to the 3DS in 2014.

What character would you love to see show up in a Smash Bros. battle? Sound off in the comments down below and maybe I’ll let you beat me in Brawl, and just when you fall into a false sense of security I’ll absolutely crush you (because I’m awesome at that game)!
