Lucas Announced for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS

Following several other Super Smash Bros. announcements, Nintendo today announced that Mother 3’s Lucas will join the fray this June. The fan-favorite character was left out of the initial release on both 3DS on Wii U, but he is sure to be warmly welcomed.No pricing was announced for Lucas, but it will likely be similar to Mewtwo.

Whether or not Lucas’ return to the spotlight in Smash is a glimmer of hope for the Mother series remains to be seen, but it can’t hurt to hope.
