Watch in 60fps on YouTube | Subscribe to Polygon on YouTube

Earlier this month, fans of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS got a pair of dates: April 15 and April 28, when the series' first-ever downloadable content would be released to Club Nintendo members and to the public, respectively.

This morning, download codes for Mewtwo began rolling out to Club Nintendo members, and we've spent some time today playing with the returning fighter. Above, watch a few of our first matches with the character as we discuss how he compares his Melee iteration, what sets him apart from Lucario, and what other changes the game's new 1.0.6 patch brings to the series.

Mewtwo is available today to those who registered their copies of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS via Club Nintendo before March 30; the Pokémon will also be available to purchase for $3.99 per platform or $4.99 for both on April 28.
