One of the most surprising announcements made during the general Nintendo Direct was the inclusion of protagonist Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy VII) in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS.

Plenty of new information has been revealed for the fighter during today’s presentation for the brawler title, including an extensive look at his moveset and Midgar stage:

  • Cloud’s Side Smash is 3-hit chain attack, a unique attack given to him.
  • His Advent Children costume has a version with the sleeve covering his Geostigma on his arm and a version¬†without the sleeve.
  • Cloud’s Limit Break is a charge gauge similar to Little Mac’s KO gauge. His Down Special is called Limit Charge ¬†which charges it. When filled it slightly increases stats and for a short while replaces regular attacks with Limit Break versions.
  • Final Smash is the famous Omnislash.
  • In the Midgar Stage the summons Ifrit, Leviathan, Ramuh, Bahamut Zero and Odin will appear, each having a unique attack and effect on the stages.
  • Cloud will be available later today for $5.99
  • As a bonus Geno from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars will be a Mii Fighter costume. Mii Fighters will also get an adorable Chocobo hat.
