'Super Smash Bros.' Director Masahiro Sakurai, via Miiverse, confirmed the inclusion of Meta Knight in the Wii U and 3DS installations of the franchise. This is Meta-Knight's second appearance in the franchise, introduced in 'Super Smash Bros. Brawl' on the Wii.
Many, including tournament holders, considered the character overpowered. Sakurai is making some changes, which he detailed in his post:
"Meta Knight's Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move."
The 3DS version will release on Oct. 3, with the Wii U version following sometime in the holiday season.
