One of the new DLC packs for Super Smash Bros is Mewtwo, the uber-powerful psychic Pokemon. After a long absence of info or news about the character, it's been revealed that Mewtwo is set for release this spring.

Eventhubs spotted a video interview with Super Smash Bros game director Masahiro Sakurai and offered an English transcript for the masses with a few choice quotes about the DLC.

You can check out the video interview below, which only clocks in at 27 seconds and is entirely in Japanese with no subtitles whatsoever, but if you can understand Japanese then all the more power to you.



According to Sakurai...
"So with regards to my announcement-ish announcement, it isn't anything to do with something new I'm working on; it's nothing like that,"... "Rather, it's about the release of the Mewotwo DLC character, which we may have made the fans quite worried about (without any updates since the character was announced in October 2014).

"With regards to that, the character is coming along just fine. In fact, it's pretty much done.

"We'll be releasing it within the period that we intended for, so until the announcement for that is here, please look forward to it.”

The DLC is supposed to be set to arrive this spring, which means it's fast approaching.

If you own both the Wii U and the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros you'll be able to get your hands on the Mewtwo DLC... for free. Exactly how this will work out has yet to be revealed but I'm sure they have something setup to make it convenient for gamers to get their hands on the DLC without any problems.

There's no actual details on what happens if you only one version or the other of Super Smash Bros, but Nintendo is usually pretty good when it comes to DLC. They're also fairly new at the DLC game and have been easing into the fold lightly. I think a lot of gamers respect them for their approach to DLC because of what's happened in the past with other companies and the abuse of the content and pricing that came with the model, such as the disc-locked content fiasco or all the pre-order DLC models that contain hundreds of dollars of content prior to the release of the game.

Anyway, Nintendo managed to hit a pretty sizable home run with Super Smash Bros on both the Wii U and the 3DS. One of the biggest drawbacks to Nintendo's eighth-gen run so far is that a lot of their awesome titles arrived a year too late, and it really put a damper on the install base growth of the system.

Super Smash Bros helped put the Wii U back into the spotlight for a bit, along with the release of the Amiibo. With the release of Mewtwo this could also help bolster the sales a bit more for the multiplayer fighting game for a bit longer. I'm sure we'll also see another bump in sales when EVO 2015 kicks into gear.
