Sakurai has confirmed today that Lucario will be a playable character in the forthcoming Super Smash Bros game. Sakurai told Miiverse users that they have given the Pokemon an improved array of powers, making him a force to be reckoned with. Super Smash Bros is due for release on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS sometime later this year.
“Pic of the day. The Heroic Aura Pokemon, Lucario, joins the battle. We’ve increased the influence of Aura this time, so a damaged Lucario is truly a force to be reckoned with.”
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
