In the most recent daily image from the official Super Smash Bros. website, Captain Olimar was revealed to return as a playable character. To go along with the announcement, a handful of images were released, showing off Olimar’s newest moves and the new Pikmin stage.
Sakurai had a few words to say in his Miiverse post:
Pikmin & Captain Olimar have landed! Congrats on the launch of Pikmin 3 in Japan!
