Cloud is heading to Smash Bros. today for Wii U and 3DS, Nintendo announced during their dedicated Direct stream.
Priced at $5.99 on each platform or for a dollar more on both, Cloud comes with a Midgar stage where Summon Materia will appear throughout the fight. The player who acquires said materia can summon beasts that alter the terrain including Ifrit, Ramuh, Leviathan, Odin and Bahamut Zero. Nintendo has also begun production on a Cloud Amiibo set for a later date.
As revealed in the Nintendo Direct presentation last month, Cloud from Final Fantasy VII is coming to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. The character will have two costumes: one inspired by the original Final Fantasy VII game and one from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. Like in Final Fantasy VII, Cloud possesses Limit Breaks when fighting in Super Smash Bros. As Cloud gives and receives damage, or uses his Down Special Attack, his Limit Break meter will fill. Once full, Cloud can activate his Limit Break.
