The three behemoths appear to be much taller and wider when lined up against the popular plumber.

A group shot of the big guys. How much bigger are they compared to Mario?

Bowser, Donkey Kong and King Dedede are considered slow but powerful characters in the previous installments of the “Super Smash Bros.” series. Although Mario has a speed advantage over all three, he isn’t nearly as strong.

In addition to the four aforementioned fighters, “Super Smash Bros. 4” includes 21 announced playable characters so far with King Dedede was the latest unveiling. More individuals are also expected to be revealed before the launch of the software product.

Masahiro Sakurai and the rest of his development team should be able to complete the development on the latest “Super Smash Bros.” video game, which will be published by Nintendo, sometime this year.
