King Dedede Confirmed For Super Smash Bros.

In honor of Kirby: Triple Deluxe releasing tomorrow for 3DS in Japan (it's coming to North America a little later this year), Nintendo has confirmed that King Dedede will be returning as a fighter in the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.

In the Miiverse post that accompanies every daily Smash Bros. image, game director Masahiro Sakurai asks players to pay special attention to Dedede's, "evocative facial expressions," in the new batch of screens, which you can see in the gallery below.

The last returning character confirmed for Super Smash Bros. was Princess Zelda, which you can see here. For more reveals, check out a new look at Dr. Wily's Castle, the Skull KidMarthSonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and the male Wii Fit trainer.

  • boring...1st!
  • This game is going to be GOTY. Nintendo is owning 2014 already. Sorry Microsoft, sorry Sony but you wont be able to compete when Smash, and Zelda arrives.
  • Oh boy...

  • Do his eyes look bigger or is it just me?
  • There are a few characters in Brawl I started off hating (Wario, Diddy Kong, Lucas) that I ended up loving... ...King Dedede was not one of those characters. I've fought with dozens of people that are incredibly good at using him, but I've never gotten the hang of him.
  • Meh, I would rather have Meta Knight return. Also, I really want some of the bounty hunters from either Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (Seriously, Rundas and Gandrayda would be awesome!) or Metroid Prime Hunters, either would be cool.
  • Great to see the derpiest character from Smash Bros. return.
  • King Dedede was easily the lamest character in Brawl. Will probably be the same this time around too.
  • I sure hope he can still throw Waddledees and subsequently swallow them whole!

  • I wonder if all the characters confirmed for the WiiU version will be on the 3DS version as well. Either way, Dedede is nice but Meta Knight is a must.
  • Regal Eagle!

    I'm interested in what new things they're bringing in... or who they're not bringing back.  Dedede was a given.

  • Sweet, Dedede is fun. I'm not that great with him, but I have a friend who this is his 2nd character after Game and Watch so I'm glad I have one of his characters to fight against (is is amazing with both characters). I hope Meta Knight is left out, or fixed....he was complete crap in Brawl. He is better a LOT in Project M, but not a great character still. Still hoping for Hector and Lyn from Fire Emblem, Any Golden Sun Characters, and Shy Guy.
  • Bring a final fantasy character, not cloud or lightning, but maybe a black mage or a knight. Final fantasy made its way on Nintendo so why not. With sonic and mega man ( maybe snake which I didn't like, his fighting style I thought sucked), I could see one of them being in it.
  • The more screenshots (or lack of) I see for the 3DS version, the more I'm worried that that version is going to be seriously gimped.

  • Now is next Meta Knight!
  • I feel like the only one who actually likes playing as Dedede :(
  • I think king Dedede needs a rival counterbalance that isn't Kirby.  He should be called Prince Ununun.

  • Woo.
  • King DeDeDe! Awesome, waiting for more new/returning characters and new trailers.

  • Well, I guess I'm glad that he's going to be in another game. I mean, I suppose he was fun in the last he was in. Which was... Melee? Brawl? The first one? I honestly can't remember. I never ever played as him.
