Since the final Smash Bros. Direct in December, players have been eagerly anticipating the release of Fire Emblem Fates’ player character, Corrin, and angel huntress supreme, Bayonetta. Tonight, Nintendo tweeted out that these two will be available the afternoon of February 3rd, just a few short days away. This will put them in players’ hands about two weeks before Fire Emblem’s U.S. release and Bayonetta 2’s re-release on February 19th, and with plenty of time for aspiring EVO attendees to work on learning and countering the newest fighters.
Keeping the Smash excitement alive will be the newest batch of Mii Fighter costumes, coming the same day. The assortment will bring the likes of obscure NES hero Takamaru, WarioWare’s resident witch, Ashley, and Sonic’s friends, Tails and Knuckles, to the fray. With all the costumes before this batch as well, these open up even more visual options for fans of Nintendo’s avatars.
Pricing for all this DLC has come to light as well. Bayonetta, along with the Umbra Clock Tower stage, will be $5.99 for one system and $6.99 for both. Corrin will be $1 less and sans stage at $4.99, and $5.99 for one and both systems respectively. Keep in mind that even though they do not come with a new Fire Emblem stage, they will bring a few new songs to the existing Colosseum and Castle Siege arenas. Each Mii costume will be $0.75 for one system and $1.15 for the Wii U and 3DS.
Coming on the same date will be other pricing bundles. The usual “Collection” package will bring both characters and all the costumes to players in one convenient, though not reduced, purchase. More interesting are the “All-in-One” fighter bundle, showing the combined cost of all the new playable characters as $34.93 on one system and $41.93 on both. Similarly there is a stage bundle, netting all the additions for $8.46 on the 3DS, $10.45 on the Wii U (due to the exclusive Pirate Ship stage), and $14.45 for all stages on both systems.
Look forward to opinions and run downs of the new content upon their release, and enjoy what will be the final collection of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U DLC.
