“Super Smash Bros. 4” for Wii U and 3DS will feature another newcomer. According to a report from Kotaku Australia on Feb. 14, Nintendo has confirmed that Little Mac will be added to the playable roster of the fourth main title of the “Super Smash Bros.” series.
The boxer previously appeared as an assist trophy in the 2008 Nintendo Wii exclusive game, “Super Smash Bros. Brawl.” He was able to attack the opposition with several quick jabs and an uppercut when summoned on to a stage.
In “Super Smash Bros. 4” for Wii U and 3DS, players will have full control over Little Mac. You can find some screens of the latest addition to the roster with the slideshow gallery to the left of this article.

The boxer is the fifth newcomer to be joining the cast. The other characters are Mega Man, Rosalina, Villager and Wii Fit Trainer. 23 playable fighters in total have been confirmed for “Super Smash Bros. 4” for Wii U and 3DS.
