HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS THIS NEWS IS TOO FREAKIN’ CRAZY FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE CAPS-LOCK BUTTON!!! THE HEADLINE SAYS IT ALL: CLOUD JOINS SUPER SMASH BROS!! AAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!
Okay… soo… perhaps that is a little much, but still: This news is pretty incredible. For one thing, it shows that Nintendo is super willing to reach out to other properties to get characters who have otherwise never really been on a Nintendo console into Super Smash Bros. For another, it’s also pretty amazing that not only are we getting a Final Fantasy VII remake, but we will be able to play the main protagonist of that game in a separate game NOT made by Square Enix. I’m just… stunned by this news, and also incredibly excited.
What we know about the release is pretty scarce. You can see some pretty awesome movesets as well as a new Final Fantasy VII playing field featured in the above video, but we still don’t know when Cloud will be released or for how much. I suspect that will all be new information we find out in December. In the meantime… SQUEEE!!
