Captain Olimar, Pikmin 3 Stage Revealed for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS
Today Nintendo revealed that Captain Olimar (the hero in Pikmin & Pikmin 2) will make his return to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS, also revealing a brand-new stage that appears to be based on Pikmin 3.
Despite the fact that Olimar won’t be the star of Pikmin 3, it looks like his popularity as a character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl was enough to keep him around. Olimar was always a tough character to master, but amazingly effective when used well. It will be interesting to see how his moves and abilities change in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS.
Olimar is the latest character revealed in the growing roster of characters for Super Smash Bros. Previously revealed were The Villager from Animal Crossing, the Wii Fit Trainer from Wii Fit, Mega Man, and classic fighters like Mario, Link, Bowser, Pikachu, Samus, and Donkey Kong.
