During today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast, it was revealed that the blue blur himself, Sonic the Hedgehog, will be returning in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games for Wii U and 3DS. This makes him the 17th character to be confirmed so far.
You can check him out in action in the trailer below, with Sonic pummelling the likes of Mario, Mega Man, Donkey Kong, Pikachu and Luigi across various stages. It seems that his moveset is largely the same as it was in Brawl, with his spin dashes, downward kicks and melee attacks. Judging by the music playing in the video, it also seems that the Sonic Heroes will be included in the games’ soundtracks.
Sonic’s reveal arrives just after the recent reveal of Toon Link’s return to the battle. Both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the yet-to-be-fully-titled new Super Smash Bros. game will release in 2014.
