        Sorry had to do it lol

  • Kuma Kabo

    Well that’s a shock.

    • Sevyne

      News that truly shook the entire foundation of the gaming industry. History in the making. I can hardly contain my expression of shock.

      Hell, look at Luigi in that picture. Doesn’t he look super shocked too?

  • Pyrofrost

    Made my day!

      Funny lol

    • Sae-Won Yoon

      Reminds of when Iwata did Iwata Asks with Kaz and shit was awkward as hell.

  • KingNigma

    What a relief. I was getting kinda nervous there.

  • Invisbin

    Actually, this is a shock for me. Didn’t they say no clone characters? They probably remade his whole move set, meaning, they could do the same for other clones!

    • Zackasaur

      When did they say that?

      I have trouble believing it, even if they did… Clones are how they bolster such a large roster, sadly. I’d love to see them change that, but I’m not sure they will…

      • Invisbin

        IGN has been getting a lot of information. They wanted to focus less on cloned characters and 3rd party characters. They don’t want cut scenes like SSBB because they ended up online, and there won’t be a mode like Subspace Emissary.

        • Elvick

          They don’t want cutscenes because they ended up online… what.

          Oh Nintendo, you’re so stupid. The cutscenes were one of the best parts about the otherwise disappointing Brawl.

        • Keegs79

          They didn’t make cut scenes because it would have cost more to develop and the game would likely not come out when they hope. It’s stupid and insulting to think people would or could fall for the reasoning. Its absurd.

  • Gilgamesh2025

    “Luigi confirmed for Super Smash Bros.” – Now I’m surprised! -.-

  • Elvick

    Will he be more interesting this time? Make use of his Luigi’s Mansion stuff. Can’t remember if he had any in Brawl, Mario had FLUDD in there. No reason they couldn’t alter Luigi.

  • DarthNemesis

    Luigi really is a pointless chatacter.He is just a tall Mario lol.

  • James Thompson

    They actually had to confirm Luigi? As if it isn’t already a known thing…
