King K. Rool, The Black Knight, Lloyd — Wave 3 Mii Fighter Costumes!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Super Smash Bros. 4 version 1.1.0.

Tonight, in Japan and soon elsewhere, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U (and For 3DS) got a new update, granting the updates-in-the-future Sakurai described the Sunday morning of E3 week for the "New Content Approaching" presentation. That includes tournaments and YouTube.

It also means a new round of Mii Fighters.

Left-to-right from top left: Hoodies, Flying Man, Bears, a loser, King K. Rool, Lloyd Irving, Samus, and the Black Knight.

The trailer for 'em is pretty cool. It's embedded below the page-break. We'll discuss it.

As you can tell by the Black Knight being the thumbnail, he has a really really cool Mii. As he should, because at one point I wanted him playable in Super Smash Bros., or at least an enemy boss like something from Subspace Emissary. You know, Event Match potential. So I'm happy he gets recognition in this game besides being a trophy.

Speaking of Fire Emblem, that other costume from Fire Emblem in this wave actually looks perfect as a Mii. It speaks to how boring, robotic, and generic he is. I guess this was his chance to fight another day? Maybe I'll buy that costume just to beat him up. Over and over again.
Lloyd Irving is in this announcement. Back before June 11, 2014, I actually wanted Lloyd in. Well, I wasn't dying to have him in, but if someone from Namco absolutely had to get in, it was Lloyd. Guess he's a Mii now if anyone really was interested.

I know a guy who is VERY interested in the Mii costume at the centre (most important?) of the first photo of the article. Yes, King K. Rool. And that guy is the resident Donkey Kong fanatic. Anyway, here's K. Rool in helpless, flailing action:

Or some dude inside his body. The Brawler references Donkey Kong 64.

Rawk wants me to mention that he firmly believes that K. Rool was at the top of the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, and Sakurai is effectively disenfranchising voters by making K. Rool a costume instead of a character based on those results. Do all of those voters get to re-vote now? That's a question KoopaTV wants to interview Nintendo about.

Okay, one last point of interest:

Hoodies? Really?

Ludwig kinda sorta wants to buy the Black Knight costume, along with making a Ulysses S. Grant Mii. Are you excited — or extremely disappointed — in these Mii Fighter costumes? Let KoopaTV know! Also, if you could make that Ulysses S. Grant Mii FOR Ludwig, that'd be great...

If you want to play a FREE game where you can beat up a kid wearing a hoodie (for a good cause), play Trayvon Tyson's Punch-Out!!. It's a better deal than you and/or K. Rool buying hoodies off the eShop like it's the Banana Republic.
The Ulysses S. Grant/Black Knight Mii thing happened here.



    Sure, this probably excludes a Tales character from being added as an actual character in the game, but I'm still happy to see representation for my beloved game! ^_^

    1. Well, glad you're happy. ^_^;

      Actually, not gonna lie, but Mii-Lloyd's hair is really cool.

    2. :D

      Slightly disappointing, though, that as Mii Costume he'll only be able to wield one sword. Lloyd fights with two swords.

    3. Better get used to carrying a Beam Sword around, as seen in his trailer.

      So is there Tales of Symphonia music in the game now?

    4. Well, in the trailer they play Symphonia music when Lloyd is shown, so I'd hope it's going to be in the actual game.

    5. Well it's not in the new (aka old) DLC stages sooooooo? >_>;


    (If they make a Mii Ninten, Kumatora or Sora, I'm hanging myself.)

    1. Why? With those three characters, its either costume or nothing.

    2. What would be the point of a Mii Ninten anyway? Just use Ness.
      But yes, Bala is right here.

    3. *cries* Ludwig, you taught me to follow my dreams! ;~;
