Pokémon Lucario Confirmed For Super Smash Bros. Wii U And 3DS

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed another returning character for the upcoming Wii U and 3DS series installments. Lucario was first introduced in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl in 2007 before making the jump to the Smash arena in the Wii’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

In the past, Lucario’s abilities have increased with the amount of damage he takes. Unfortunately, this makes him weakest when he’s fresh, leading to high risk, high reward gameplay.

You can check out the new screenshots from both platforms below. Super Smash Bros. is confirmed for a 2014 release.

  • *** Lucario bring back Mewtwo.
  • We better have Mewtwo as well!...either way, Lucario's fighting method is near identical and was always fun to play. He's a timing fighter for sure.
  • Can we get reveals on new characters? Most of these are expected.
  • Wow... He looks great in this game. Edit: I just checked the official website roster list... There are 5 spots still open... I really hope Wonder Red and Bayonetta are in the game!!!
  • Yes yes very nice. So when are they announcing Groose as the new OP character?
  • I figured as much. The guys at big N LOVE Luke.

  • Mod
    Lucario. He's a dandy guy...in space. He combs the galaxy like his pompadour on the hunt for aliens. Stage after stage he searches, discovering new creatures both friendly and not. These are the spectacular adventures of Lucario and his brave Smash crew. In space.
  • I know he isn't on the front end of anyone's radar but I really want wolf to come back.
  • Huh? I thought for sure they would have added Zoroark.
  • Meh... I was kinda hoping Ol' Mewtwo was coming back...oh well. I never really understood Lucario's popularity, nor why he can talk. Also, why not use on the Pokemon from X/Y? Meh.
  • We are still seeing old characters from previous Smash Bros. I want to see a new character that would shock all of us like how Mega Man appeared. I do wish for one classic character and favorite character of mine and that would be Ness.
  • New mega-evolution ability maybe to keep him fresh, would of hoped for mewtwos return or a new one from xy, Hawlucha would be perfect for this but Lucario is still pretty cool.
  • Project M version of him is so much better.
  • Lucario's pretty badass...He was one of my preferred characters. Can't wait to play as him :D

  • I will be getting a wii u just for this game!!!
  • Just a guess but now I am willing to be this mega evolution will be his new final smash.

  • Not bad. I'd like to see Mewtwo make a return somehow, but Lucario was a decent fighter.

  • I feel like Lucario is overrated.. he's cool i guess but doesn't do nething for me.
  • Great, one of my main characters for Brawl. Got Marth and Bowser already, just need Wolf.

  • Meh...Never was a fan.
