In arguably the biggest OMG moment in Smash Bros history, Final Fantasy VII protagonist Cloud Strife has been announced as a payable character in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U. Did you ever imagine that would happen?
Revealed in a trailer during a Nintendo Direct, Cloud comes complete with most of his iconic moves, including limit breaks, an Odin summon, and even an Advent Children alternate costume.
Also a homage is his stage, which is based on famous Final Fantasy 7
city Midgar. The attention to detail to his overall design is impeccable...
Watch the full trailer and let us know what you think. Is he everything you expected him to be?
While Final Fantasy VII
never came to any Nintendo system, Cloud did make an appearance in music spinoff Theatrhythm Final Fantasy
and its sequel Curtain Call
on the Nintendo 3DS, as well as in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories
on Game Boy Advance, so him entering Super Smash Bros.
is not as farfetched as it might seem.
Nintendo didn’t reveal when our massive sword-wielding hero will be playable, nor the release date for his amiibo figure, so make sure to stay tuned to GameTribute for future developments.
