Dillon from Dillon’s Rolling Western will be part of Super Smash Bros 4, director Masahiro Sakurai revealed this week.

The game is coming out for Nintendo 3DS this summer and Wii U this winter.

Dillon will be part of the game as a new assist trophy, Sakurai said on Friday, showing two screenshots of Dillon in action. 

A day prior, he shared a screenshot of an Orne from Kid Icarus: Uprising attacking Mario.

“The menacing foe, Orne! It inflicts devastating damage–it’s even more powerful than the Ultimate Chimera in the last game. RUNNN!!” he said.

Earlier this year, Nintendo said that “Super Smash Bros 4” will be released for the 3DS in the summer, but did not specify when. The Wii U version will likely come out later on in the winter, the company said.

For the 3DS version, creator Masahiro Sakurai said in April that “your character starts a Smash Run as a relatively ordinary fighter. But before the game, you can outfit yourself with certain items that can help power you up early, which will give you a big advantage later on!! These items are much like the Powers you’d find in Kid Icarus: Uprising.”

Last year, Sakurai detailed the process of adding and removing characters.

“The amount of stress I feel, it’s almost to the brink of death,” Sakurai told Polygon. “Because it’s not just a matter of me personally thinking this character or that character is going to be in the game; it’s that we also have the game balance, animation, graphics and sound to think about in order to make that character fully fleshed out in that universe. I have to think about all of that when I go through this decision-making process.”
