Can you believe it?! It’s actually happening! As a fan of Ness, “Earthbound” and everything the “Mother” series has to offer, the addition of Lucas to the “Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS” character roster has made me immeasurably excited! In fact, I can barely type this article because of how much I’m shaking right now. It’s the beginning of April and it doesn’t just mark the month of my birthday but a month that happens to feature another exciting Nintendo Direct Presentation which, at the time of writing this article, is currently underway.
Kicking off the presentation was that of a section dedicated to “Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS”. As excited as people were to see that Mewtwo is definitely coming to the game sometimes soon, I was even more excited to hear that “Mother 3’s” protagonist Lucas will, once again, return to the battlefield. Set to be made available in two months time, sometime in June of this year, Lucas will come to us all as paid DLC which is fine by me seeing as he’s one of my favorite characters to play as.
Also announced, but not shown, is the Lucas Amiibo which will be getting a release sometime in the future alongside a Mewtwo Amiibo which was also announced during the presentation. As far as movesets go, we all know that Lucas plays similar to Ness but hopefully his alternative moves will vary even slightly from Ness’. Either way, it’s clear that people around the world wanted the chance to, once again, dominate as Lucas and the time will soon come. Stay tuned for a whole bunch more information from the April Nintendo Direct Presention.
