Today, Club Nintendo has begun sending the download codes to owners of both the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. from all around the world, so they can once again, they’ll fight as the Legendary Pokémon himself in Smash!

A couple years ago, if you asked Smash Bros. fans and Brawl players who did they miss the most from Melee, you were very likely to hear the name Mewtwo.
Mewtwo’s moveset isn’t too different from his Melee incarnation, but he has of course been balanced to fairly work wi

th the Wii U and 3DS games. His special moves in particular, are design-wise identical to their previous versions, with only a few tweaks and overall sped-up from their GameCube versions.

If you weren’t one of the lucky ones to register both copies of the game on Club Nintendo, you’ll be able to buy and download the fighter on April 28th of this year for $3.99 for either the Wii U or the 3DS version or $4.99 to play it on both.

Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot lets you vote for your favorite characters.

Choose your character!

Nintendo has launched a new service where players from around the world can make a petition for their favorite characters from various video games to appear in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. It was first announced at the April 1st Nintendo Direct.

Maybe the Squidlings will make the cut?
The system is quite simple, you enter the site and are asked for your gender, then, which character would you like in Smash, the title of the game he or she is from, and finally, why you think this character should make it to the game.
It is unkown if certain characters will be not taken into account, like the Ice Climbers or Ridley, as they’ve been cut from the game for  different reasons, or characters that currently are Assist Trophies (Like Waluigi and Shadow the Hedgehog) or Pokémon from the Pokeballs (Such as Metacross or Fennekin). We don’t know if third-party characters will be taken into account either.
You can vote for your favorite character right here.
Who will you choose? Let us know in the comment section bellow.
