The Kid Icarus star is the latest addition to the roster
The roster for Super Smash. Bros. keeps growing and growing as we found out at the end of Nintendo's E3 Digital Event. Reggie snuck in a little teaser that showed a cartoon of Palutena arriving to help out Pit as he battles Link. Turns out she's not there to save his bacon but to compete.
We got a good showing of her range of powers and abilities and it seems like this version of Palutena is based on the Kid Icarus: Uprising iteration. I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo had at least one more surprise character announcement lined up either.
