Meta Knight Returns in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U

ssbday302

The enigmatic rival of Kirby, Meta Knight, has come back to put up another fight in both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U of Super Smash Bros.! Following the suspicious reveal of the Meta Knight mask for the Mii Fighters in Monday’s Picture of the Day, the veteran swordsman was officially confirmed by Sakurai on Miiverse:
 
“Looks like there was an impostor in the earlier posts, so I introduced him to my sword!” …I’ll leave it up to your imagination if he really said that or not. The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!! We didn’t forget the Battleship Halberd either!!

In image 6, I love how Yoshi dodged being hit by Meta Knight. Mario, not so much.

Pretty sure Yoshi got hit. No one dodges with shocked expressions (at least, not that I’ve seen).

I just noticed how the mach sword slices distort the very air Galaxia slices through. A neat graphical touch and upgrade from Brawl.

They’ll both return, there’s 7 characters that I’m 100% sure they’ll return no matter what the other people say, that characters are Ice Climbers, Ganondorf, Jigglypuff, Falco, Mr. Game & Watch, Ness, Wario.

So now they just need to officially confirm Wario & Mr G&W, and all we need are Ness, Jigglypuff, Ganondorf, Falco and the Ice Climbers, in terms of veterans.
