Masahiro Sakurai has revealed another new character that will be added in the upcoming "Super Smash Bros 4" for Wii U and 3DS. According to a report from Game and Guide on June 17, Eggrobo is going to make a cameo in the crossover title. The classic enemy first appeared in "Sonic and Knuckles," a Sega Genesis title that was released in 1994.

In the upcoming title, Eggrobo will appear during the Smash Run mode, which is exclusive to the 3DS version. It is going to attack participants using laser beams. Players also have the ability to acquire a collectible trophy of the character. Masahiro Sakurai did not reveal if the same individual would also be making a cameo in "Super Smash Bros 4" for Wii U.

Nintendo also provided more details on one of the newcomers that were recently announced, the Mii Swordfighter. The character has three moves with Chakrams, Gale Strikes and : Shurikens of Light. The first attack is described as a side-special maneuver as players can control the direction of the projectile. The Miis were officially introduced at E3 2014 by Nintendo as fans will be able to create their own fighters. You can find the details on some of the Mii Swordfighter's attacks below:

Here are some weapons the Mii Swordfighter can use: Shurikens of Light, Chakrams, and Gale Strikes. You can control the direction the Chakram is thrown, or even make it stall in midair. The Chakram is also the only one of these tied to the side special move, so you can use one of the other items consecutively with this one.

In addition to Mii Swordfighter, fans can also use Mii Brawler and Mii Gunner when building a character. Although their creations are banned from online play with strangers, players can use the customized fighters while playing with friends over the internet. You can find a screen of Mii Swordfighter from the "Super Smash Bros" Facebook page near the top of this article.

"Super Smash Bros 4" for 3DS has an official release date of Oct. 3 after initially being scheduled for a summer launch. Nintendo is also planning a holiday release for the Wii U game. Both titles are being developed at the Sora studio with support from Bandai Namco Games. Pre-order the sequel in the crossover fighting series with the following link: "Super Smash Bros 4."
