Here comes a new challenger. Pikmin protagonist Captain Olimar will make a playable appearance in next year's 3DS and Wii U Super Smash Bros outing, bringing his legions of critters directly into combat. As you can plainly see, getting hit by a red Pikmin seriously hurts.
Naturally there'll also be a Pikmin-themed stage, complete with over-sized vegetation and scenery. Super Smash Bros. is out next year, featuring new cameos from Mega Man, the Animal Crossing Villager and Wii Fit trainer amongst others.
