An unlikely fighter joins the cast.

Wii Fit Trainer, from Wii Fit, will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo revealed the character, whose final move is called “Wii Fit,” in a new Developer Direct featuring director Masahiro Sakurai.

Last week, Gematsu was tipped off about Nintendo’s E3 character reveals for Super Smash Bros. But since we were unable to confirm the validity of our source, we refrained from posting the information. Of the six characters we were told would be revealed, three have been confirmed: Mega Man, Animal Crossing Villager, and Wii Fit Trainer. The three left remaining are Little Mac, Pac-Man, and your Mii.

Watch the Developer Direct below.

    Whattttttttttt?????!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! Out of all the recent new ips or existing ones, they show a generic yoga instructor? *mind explodes* wheres my shulk?

    • BizarreJelly

      Complaining about a character being generic and wanting Shulk, a sword user, because you can never have too many sword users! The pinnacle of variety!

      The Instructor is very unique and actually looks fun.

      • SuperLuigi

        Idk I just don’t like it. It is imo of coarse but I just want more epic characters. We have villager as a funny lol character announced the same day.

        • BizarreJelly

          Of course, I’m a sucker for uniqueness is all! She definitely sounds like she would be a joke character but her move-set looks pretty good. She’s definitely a surprise though you’d expect her to be assist trophy at most… I like it :) adds another girl to the fray.

        • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

          judging the game early on when it character count is 12.

  • rainelee

    That was unexpected.

  • Locksus

    HAHA this is awesome :D
    Anyways, glad to see some gameplay!

  • dez-e-ray112

    I’m impressed with how they can provide a moveset for the Wii-Fit Trainer.

  • Acidicsam

    I’m loving how the 3DS version is looking. I can not wait for this game.

  • Locksus

    Sakurai is just awesome

  • Skerj

    Wii Fit Trainer = S Tier. I don’t even like Smash but her and Megaman have at least secured a purchase.

    • Slayven19

      I like people like you, and someone told me that no one would buy the game for WFT and now I can prove them wrong by linking here ^_^.

  • Calvin Chikelue

    This is brilliant and appropriately insane. I have to buy it Day One.

  • OverlordZetta

    I’ll be damned. Pac-Man, Mario, Mega, and hopefully Sonic all in one game?
    This’ll be a must buy.

  • Charlie

    That was awesomely unexpected.

    Hmm I was pretty bummed when Megaman (Retro) was the one who got in. I prefer X but I appreciate how authentic Sakurai went with him. All sound effects, all the jump animations faithfully remade, plujs awesome techniques. He brings something fun to the Brawl with the nostalgia, so it works out. If more good things like that come to Smash Bros that could help raise the excitement for it but for now I’m still just seeking something entirely new from Nintendo.

    • GetOffMy_Lawn

      Maybe they’ll have X as an alternate costume, sort of like Wario had his WarioWare look and his classic look in Brawl?

      • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

        Possible but then the sound effects wouldn’t match and it kind of seems like Sakurai was making a statement by picking this Megaman over X (since X did eventually leave nintendo’s platform and all). Though I could just be reading too much into that.

        • jay

          I’m guessing X is his special.

          Like Wario > Wario Man and Sonic> Super Sonic

          • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

            Hmm…possibility, we’ll see!

          • Devonte Griffith

            X is his brother, a completely different person.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I want this game NOW

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      then u want an unfinished product

  • xMCXx

    Mega Man, Animal Crossing Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, Little Mac, Pac-Man, and your Mii.
    Pretty…..meh in my opinion.
    Fighting with your Mii sounds cool. And Mega Man.
    But the rest…

    • http://gematsu.com/ Sal Romano

      Those last three I mentioned are not confirmed. I was merely stating how I was told about these characters about a week ago, but had no way of verifying the source. So with three of the six characters told to me verified, it’s possible these next three might be revealed soon.

      • xMCXx

        Oh, I see.
        But after the Villager and the Trainer they sound very plausible.^^

  • AdamBoy64

    Lolz. What the?
    This is hilarious.

  • fireemblembeast

    Holy wow… I shat bricks.
    Oh, and playing as your mii sounds awesome! I can’t wait to see more!

  • toykyle

    those next three characters might be revealed every several hours, idk.

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    As…..really REALLY weird this is.

    But as long they get rid of tripping and keep it balanced.

    • emerazea

      No Tripping has apparently been confirmed to a kotaku journalist during an interview with Sakurai.

  • Desvantes

    When will little mac be revealed..
    Hope he’s in it along with
    1: king k rool
    3: Ganondorf (different moves)
    4: Shadax (solstice)

  • Nick Schaedel

    Fuel on the fire: the boxing ring level you saw in the trailer could very easily be Little Mac’s home stage and had me speculating about a Punch-Out! inclusion even before I saw this news.

  • LyrandisX

    I hope we see Isaac from Golden Sun get in, it was one of the best titles on the GBA, selling 1,000,000 copies

  • Land of the Livid Dead

    So, specifically “E3 character reveals”, huh? Your move Gematsu, this was shady enough already with the “well we already knew but said nothing” bit, so if they’re E3 reveals then where are they?

    • Johnny Luigi

      Said nothing? Sal revealed all six characters on Neogaf the day before Nintendo’s E3 Direct. That’s why this rumor is still believable to this day. Nobody could have guessed the Wii Fit Trainer.

  • Fahd Al Zarooni

    Next year will be a blast for Nintendo… (^0^) /

  • IDK

    Little mac was just confirmed! But I really Do not want to see PAC man at all! This was originally nintendo’s game so it should stay nintendo’s game. Sonic shouldn’t have even been in it in my opinion.

    • wimpykid456

      And then Pac-man.
