After opening to a hilarious Robot Chicken-like scene and… Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime and Satoru Iwata fighting in a Dragon Ball Z fashion (admittedly better than Dragon Ball Evolution), the pair began playing Super Smash Bros. on the Wii U by using Mii characterizations of themselves in the Nintendo Digital Event at E3 2014.
Masahiro Sakurai, creator of Super Smash Bros., then took presence on screen and officially revealed Mii’s as playable characters.
There will be three different types of Miis to play with: The Mii Brawler, Mii Swordfighter and Mii Gunner. The Mii Brawler is akin to Little Mac and favors close quarters combat; the Mii Swordfighter is more like Link and uses a sword for combat; and last but not least, Mii Gunners use a cannon arm similar to Samus’ for ranged attacks.
Mii’s also have their own 12 special moves, meaning there are a total of 36 with each character.
