As revealed yesterday, the eagerly anticipated Tails Mii Gunner costume and Knuckles Mii Brawler costume are arriving in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS later this week (specifically, Wednesday in the US/Japan and Thursday in Europe). To celebrate, Nintendo has released a whole smorgasbord of delightful new screenshots showing off the two new Sonic themed outfits in action!
Check out the gallery of Wii U and 3DS screens below to get a taste of how Sonic’s two best buddies will look when they square off against gaming’s biggest icons in Nintendo’s all-star brawler:
Each costume will individually cost €0.79/£0.69 to download for one version of the game, or €1.19/£1.09 for both the Wii U and 3DS versions.
Will you be downloading either the Tails or Knuckles costumes (or both!) later this week for a true Super Smash Sonic Heroes showdown? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
Last night Nintendo held a presentation showcasing Bayonetta and Corrin from Fire Emblem being playable in Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS (Nintendo of Europe shared both videos here and here). Right after, Nintendo of America and Europe announced that both the characters, and the bonus Mii Fighter costumes featuring (among others) Tails and Knuckles will be released on the afternoon of Feb 3rd in NA and the morning of the 4th in Europe (time-zones and all that). No exact time was given.
Announced today at the final Super Smash Bros. For Wii U/3DS Direct, Tails and Knuckles will finally be showing their faces alongside Sonic in the popular duo of fighting games… though, perhaps not in the form you would have preferred.
As part of the final wave of Mii Costume DLC, Tails will launch as part of the Mii Gunner series, while Knuckles will appear as a Mii Brawler. Though these costumes add no unique attributes to the base fighter, you can adjust your Miis in various other ways to suit how you best think these characters would work in the Smash Bros universe – with multiple special moves to choose from and badges to apply to adjust their statistics.
On top of this announcement, Mr. Sakurai also shared that QR Codes for Miis will become available soon which will help you to create Miis which best benefit the looks of your Mii Fighter – meaning you can get as close as possible to the pipe dream of having Sonic and co. appear in Smash Bros.
These new costumes will launch February 2016.
