Nintendo has announced that Final Fantasy 7 hero Cloud Strife will be available as the next Super Smash Bros. DLC character.
The news comes at the conclusion of today's Nintendo Direct presentation. The character will be available for both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game. Chocobo costumes for Mii Fighters will also be available to download.
No release date for the character was given, but Nintendo did alert fans to a special Super Smash Bros. related "news broadcast" coming in December for more information.
Earlier this year, series producer Masahiro Sakurai opened up an online poll for fans to vote on which characters they wanted to see come to Super Smash Bros. as DLC. Cloud is the first brand new character to be unveiled since Street Fighter's Ryu in April.
