Little Mac joins Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS

Today's Nintendo Direct kicked off with a new competitor for the new Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS and he's no stranger to one-on-one combat. Little Mac from the Punch-Out series has been promoted from Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Brawl to full-on playable character.

The trailer below shows Little Mac training, as he receives instructions from faithful trainer Doc Louis, who may or may not be eating a chocolate bar as he shouts his words of encouragement. In addition to showing off his fleet feet and boxing prowess, the Punch-Out star will also have a unique power meter that rapidly builds up with successful blows, not unlike his signature series. Building up this meter will lead to KO-caliber punches. Mac is also shown hulking out in what will presumably be his Final Smash attack.

This brings the Super Smash Bros. roster up to 23 and counting.
