During today’s Nintendo Direct, a surprising announcement was made – Final Fantasy VII’s Cloud Strife will be heading for Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS. With Cloud’s inclusion, he will have access to limit breaks, the Odin summon, and his Advent Children outfit.
Thus far, Cloud has only been featured in spin-off titles on Nintendo system – both Theatrhythm Final Fantasy games, Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded, and Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories. Additionally, as Nintendo has said that every Super Smash Bros fighter will have an Amiibo, it’s just a matter of time before the Cloud Strife Amiibo is revealed. Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS will also be receiving a Midgar stage alongside the release of Cloud.
You can find Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS now on Amazon.
