It’s hard to believe, but there’s just one week to go till we’ll all have our hands on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! The cross-brand countdown still has some ways to go, though, and this latest stop is one you might not have seen coming.

It’s a new Tetsuya Nomura sketch that highlights one of his earliest character designs and Smash 4’s most surprising DLC fighter – Cloud Strife. Alongside the ex-SOLDIER? Adorable versions of Link, Kirby, and Mario, all in a style highly reminiscent of the acrylic stands designed for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.

Of course, that’s not the only countdown today…

Yep, it’s him, Bomberman, as well as Kirby showing off some of his new hats.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches on December 7th.
