Masahiro Sakurai, creator of the fighting video game “Super Smash Bros” on both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, will be talking about new content for the game in the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 to be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center next week.
In an official announcement from Nintendo on June 8, the Japanese gaming company said that Sukurai will hold a video presentation on June 14, two days before the actual E3 2015, and the creator will talk about the latest updates to “Super Smash Bros” which is also known as “Super Smash Bros 4.”
The presentation will also be broadcast through Nintendo’s dedicated E3 site. It will air on the same day that Lucas and Splatoon-themed outfits will become available as downloadable content (DLC) on “Super Smash Bros 4,” notes Polygon.
Nintendo has recently outlined its plans for E3 2015 that also includes the return of the Nintendo World Championships on June 16 which is a Nintendo Direct event. The Japanese gaming company will also hold game-centered live streams through the E3 2015 week.
Last week, Nintendo announced that another character is coming in June to “Super Smash Bros 4” on Wii U and 3DS and it will be no other than Lucas.
But Lucas will come as a DLC and he will join other fighters in the video game that already include Mewtwo, Sakurai, Duck Hunt, Mega Man and many others.
DLC is a new strategy for the “Super Smash Bros 4” of Nintendo and Lucas will only be the second downloadable character in the video game next only to Mewtwo.
When Mewtwo was released to the “Super Smash Bros 4” DLC shop a few weeks ago, the pocket monster had a retail price of $4 a pop, or $5 if users wanted it for both the Wii U and 3DS. The situation will likely be true for the Mother character when he debuts on the video game.
Some gamers are actually looking forward to seeing Nintendo choosing to offer the two “Super Smash Bros 4” characters as a bundle.
The site also mentioned about the “Legacy Fighters” pack which would be good to gamers who are playing catch up. But overall, gamers would easily be convinced spending extra money for Mewtwo.
Lucas is likely to be entered into the “Super Smash Bros 4” via a software update similar to the path taken by Mewtwo.
Meanwhile, Nintendo has released Amiibo figurines, namely Marth, Ike, and Meta Knight, on May 29 simultaneous with the official roll out of the Wave 4 of “Super Smash Bros 4.” Amiibo are like action figures of ‘Super Smash Bros’ fighting characters.
