Alph & Pikmin Joins The Battle In Super Smash Bros For Wii U

Today on Miiverse, director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that the hero from Pikmin 3, Alph will join the battle. Alph is essentially a variant of Olimar & Pikmin, with both sharing the same skills and abilities. However, Sakurai revealed that Alpha & Pikmin and Olimar & Pikmin will get separate character selection screens. I am a little confused how this will work, because I am certain that Sakurai is trolling with that second comment! I suspect Alph is a reskin of Olimar, and nothing more. Maybe it will work similarly to the Princess Zelda and Sheik in Super Smash Bros Brawl?

Pic of the day. The hero from Pikmin 3, Alph joins the battle!! He has pretty much the same set skills as Olimar since he’s basically just his variation. He can’t use Rock Pikmin either.

They are different characters, so they each get their own title treatment on the character-selection screen. See? It says Alph.

Super Smash Bros. For 3DS is set to hit stores in North America, Europe and Australia on October 3rd. Super Smash Bros For Wii U does not have a solid release date, but is targeted for the holidays.
