Nintendo Direct Reveals Shulk for Smash Bros., Brand New 3DS Model, Xenoblade Chronicles Port


Jonathan Higgins

Have you ever woken up and felt like the world slightly shifted on its axis? That“s certainly how I feel this morning, as one of the biggest fans of Xenoblade Chronicles.

 

Shulk, the main character from Xenoblade has officially been confirmed for Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo Wii and 3DS. His official reveal trailer (seen below) features the usual Sakurai charm, as well as showing off some of his moves. His Final Smash features Riki and Dunban joining him for a moment. The end of the trailer even features Metal Face from Xenoblade looming over him as a shadow. Is this a hint to a potential stage hazard?

 

 

Oh, but that“s not all. Nintendo also announced a port of Xenoblade Chronicles was coming to Nintendo 3DS. ...But wait! That“s impossible with the 3DS“s processing power, isn“t it?

 

Precisely. And that“s why Nintendo officially announced brand new 3DS and 3DS XL systems this morning. They“re coming to Japan on October 11th, 2014.

The systems have been confirmed for the West as well (2015), but the Xenoblade Chronicles port has not. I presume Nintendo of America are keeping their cards close for some potential PAX Prime spotlight. I'm quite certain this port won't provoke another Operation Rainfall.

 

For now, you can watch the full Nintendo Direct presentation (in Japanese) to see all the greatness revealed before many of us woke up this morning. More news bits include the fact that themes are coming to the Home Menu on Nintendo 3DS in October. For those wondering just how much processing power these new systems will have,

of Xenoblade Chronicles for Wii and the brand new 3DS systems.

 

This story is still developing. I“ll update it with more information as it comes.
