Nintendo announced at E3 Tuesday that Lady Palutena, the goddess from the Kid Icarus franchise, will be a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS.
Palutena becomes the second playable character from the series to make the Smash Bros. roster, after main character Pit made his debut in Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii. A gameplay video shows her using a large staff to pummel foes and interacting with a character called Dark Pit, who could be either a separate character or a costume change for the regular Pit.
Nintendo also announced that Miis will be playable characters in the new Smash Bros. with a customizable moveset. Other newcomers are the villager from Animal Crossing, the Pokemon Greninja, Little Mac from Punch-Out!! and the Wii Fit trainer.
