It's no surprise to learn that Luigi will be a fighter in Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS, but it's nice to get confirmation.

Luigi was confirmed as a fighter during today's Nintendo Direct with a series of screen shots. There was no new gameplay footage to speak of, but Nintendo did update the official Super Smash Bros. website with a collection of new Luigi images, which you can check out in the gallery below.

Yesterday, Nintendo revealed that Pilotwings will be making an appearance in the game, as well.
