The lights are on
Pikmin's hero Olimar made his Smash Bros. debut in the Wii game Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and apparently he's developed a taste for bloodsport. The pint-sized astronaut is returning to the ring, and we've got a batch of new screens showing him (and his Pikmin pals) in action.
You can see the character using Pikmin as projectiles and melee weapons in the screens below. Even though Olimar does meet up with the crew in Pikmin 3, the new rock and flying Pikmin from that game don't appear to be part of his arsenal. He does, however, have a new stage, which adds another confirmed level to the list.
