Super Smash Bros 4: Meta Knight is Now on the Official Character List; Mega Man Moves Detailed (+Photo)

Super Smash Bros 4 for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will include Meta Knight, game director Masashiro Sakurai revealed this week.

He had teased the addition earlier this week but confirmed the addition on Wednesday.

“”Looks like there was an impostor in the earlier posts, so I introduced him to my sword!’ …I’ll leave it up to your imagination if he really said that or not. The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!! We didn’t forget the Battleship Halberd either!!” he said.

Sakurai also detailed some of Meta Knight’s moves.

“Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game,” he said.

“The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.”
