Megaman Super Smash Bros. debut: A new challenger will enter the world of Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U console and the 3DS handheld gaming system, Nintendo announced Tuesday.
Megaman, along with characters from Nintendo game Animal Crossing, will join current favorites such as Mario and Kirby in the new Super Smash Bros., expected to launch in 2014.
The fan buzz has hit social media platforms.
Twitter user “lawblob” tweeted Wednesday: “Why is CNN talking about NSA as their main story? do they seriously not know about Mega Man in smash bros?”
Audrey Drake tweeted: “Mega Man!! I’ve been asking for it so long I don’t even know what to say. *tear*”
On a Facebook Megaman fan page, Stanley Baatjies posted, “My entire gaming life started with Megaman- Woooooow!!!”
At the end of a string of hundreds of comments, Dan Boise posted: “Seriously couldn’t care less. This is getting insanely pathetic.”
