The lights are on
When Game Informer's news hound Mike Futter assigned me to this story, I questioned its legitimacy as an April Fools' Day prank. In my opinion, Nester joining Super Smash Bros' expanding roster makes more sense than Wii Fit Trainer. I'd also take him over King Dedede.
This April Fools' Day joke doesn't come from Nintendo, but website Operation: Power Up. A good amount of effort went into making this joke look like the real deal, including a Super Smash Bros. web portal that links up to Nintendo's site.
