Pikmin and Olimar confirmed for Smash Bros Wii U

New screens show Brawl favourites return

Nintendo has revealed that Captain Olimar will return as a playable character in the next Super Smash Bros game for Wii U, and he'll once again have Pikmin in tow.

Olimar, the hero in Pikmin and Pikmin 2, made his Smash Bros. debut in the previous game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Although the upcoming Pikmin 3 stars three new heroes called Alph, Brittany and Charlie, it's Olimar who'll be returning in Smash Bros.

A new stage, which appears to be based on the planet from Pikmin 3, is also revealed in the screenshots.

The first Super Smash Bros Wii U trailer revealed that Mega Man and the Animal Crossing villager would be playable characters for the first time in the series.

It was later revealed that the Wii Fit Trainer will also make her Smash Bros debut.
