Meta Knight is making a welcome return to Super Smash Bros. after being revealed in the Pic of the Day. Interestingly the Monday picture showcased a Mii wearing a Meta Knight mask with the caption “And I am Meta Knight, joining the Battle” so many people were already fairly certain we would see a confirmation this week, with yesterdays unrelated picture featuring The Special Flag trying to throw the Miiverse community off the scent. Meta Knight is the latest character to be revealed since newcomers Robin and Lucina from the Fire Emblem series were introduced alongside veteran fighter Captain Falcon.
Meta Knight is the anti-hero of the Kirby series and was first featured in a Smash Bros. game in Brawl where he was one of the very first newcomers introduced alongside Wario. Meta Knight saw a very high level of play in the competitive scene, forcing the character to become banned in most tournaments as he was seen as overpowered. It will be interesting to see what adjustments they make to his move set and mechanics among the rest of the cast to even out the playing field. Let us know in the comments below if you are happy to see Meta Knight make a return and while you’re there, let us know which character you would most like to see in Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS.
