Mewtwo & Lucas Smash Bros. Trailers Released...More to Come?!

Also from yesterday's Nintendo Direct stream, Nintendo has unveiled two brand spanking new trailers for additional characters soon coming via DLC – the previously announced Mewtwo and the surprise return of Lucas!

Both characters are returning veterans from previous Smash games (Melee for Mewtwo, Brawl for Lucas), and are set to drop as downloadable DLC in the near future, and we'll be sure to keep you posted as to when they become available!

The really exciting news though is that these two may just be the tip of the iceberg. Nintendo has opened up a site allowing people to put in a vote for further additional characters they'd like to see make their way into the Smash franchise! The votes are write-in operated rather than choosing from a pre-made list of characters, so you can put in anyone you want – though obviously your best bets are going to be putting in entries for characters that are either 1) owned by Nintendo, 2) are from games that are primarily on Nintendo systems even if they're owned by a third-party developer, and/or 3) are 'classic' characters that are likely to be of interest. I can't imagine DBZ's Goku is too likely of a candidate, no matter how much interest there seems to be in his inclusion if you look around online.

As an additional note, while Mewtwo is confirmed to be free DLC for players who have both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game, it's not yet known (but can probably be assumed) if he'll also be available through paid DLC for players that only have one version or the other. Lucas can probably be assumed to be the same.

UPDATE: It's been brought to our attention that it's been confirmed that Mewtwo will be available to players via paid download starting April 28th, but players who have already registered both a 3DS and Wii U copy of the game will receive a free download code for him on April 15. The 3DS and Wii U versions alone will cost $3.99, whereas buying him for both will cost $4.99, meaning it's probably worth your while to just get both for whenever you do get the other version of the game. Thanks to friend of the site Kevin Kirschenpfad for bringing this to our attention!
