The lights are on
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.

I thought this was the funniest announcement from the Nintendo Direct. Mostly because the social stream on the side was filled with people acting like this was unexpected news, lol still, it is nice to see a confirmation.
Wooooaw ! I would have never guessed !
Hahah nice, Nintendo. I want this game SOOO badly.
What a...shock? We all saw this coming. After all, Weegee is a veteran!
This needed confirmation? I always just assumed he'd be there. Anyways, still waiting on Mr. Game and Watch announcement.
Oh, that's the guy from that haunted house game.
LUIGI!!!!! Getting with the Wii Fit Trainer I see.
Is this game seriously just called Super Smash Bros.? Did Nintendo forget to name this one?
It would have been shocking if Luigi was NOT in the game. At least this puts some people's worries to rest.
These screenshots are worth the pointless announcement. Just look at them, they're so Luigi.
...oh thank heaven.
I was so worried they were going to announce a new character next. I really hope we get confirmation that Yoshi and Peach are returning when they make the next announcement.
