The lights are on
Today marks the release of Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, and Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai is celebrating with a new character reveal. The smaller member of the Donkey Kong duo is making his return when Super Smash Bros. arrives for Wii U and 3DS this year.
Diddy Kong is one of the smaller members of the Smash Bros. roster, but can take to the air with his rocket barrels. He also has peanut popguns and banana peels that can keep hit foes from a distance while keeping them from getting too close.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are on track for a 2014 release. For more, check out the recent reveals of the Mother Brain assist trophy, Lucario, Zelda, the Skull Kid, Marth, Sonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.
