Animal Crossing's Villager Fighter In Super Smash Bros. Has Male And Female Variants

The only gender we've seen for the Super Smash Bros. villager fighter has been the male, but a recent screen from the game shows you will be able to play as the female villager, too.

As with every daily Super Smash Bros. image, director Masahiro Sakurai has offered an accompanying Miiverse post. Sakurai writes, "You can choose to play as the girl villager too!! How lovely." The Wii Fit trainer offers a similar variant.

Super Smash Bros. are on track for a 2014 release for Wii U and 3DS. For more, check out the newest Pokémon fighters, reveals of Luigi's final smash, a Lumiose City stagea new Animal Crossing stageDiddy Kong, the Mother Brain assist trophythe Waluigi assist trophy,LucarioZelda, the Skull KidMarthSonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, and the 3DS Mii Plaza.

  • More variety can't hurt.
  • The real question is how many people actually care he's in the game at all
  • Any time you wanna release that 3DS release date, Nintendo?
  • Everyone anticipated this. More variety is good.
  • Does this mean that the My unit avatar from awakening will be in this game?
  • Does this look like the face of mercy?
  • I just hope that Nintendo embraces dlc with this game and Mario Kart 8. More courses, levels, and characters for both games would be awesome.
  • The real question is... Will Nintendo patch this game to include same-sex relationships?! ... that's a little Tomodachi Life humor for you.
  • That guy that's second to the left looks like he wants to kill.

  • Is this not just a colour variation they had in past games? or is it its own unique fighter?
  • I like how WFT and Villager are unexpected characters with a different gender version for an alt costume. They also contrast each other nicely with Villager having male as his default while WFT's default form is female.

  • I like how they're doing the PS Allstars thing where alternate costumes are actually different costumes and not just pallet swaps. Hopefully it's like that for every character.

  • Hmm, this was expected, but it's still cool to see everyone was right on this.

  • This is a cool idea. Male and Female variations of the Villagers are more compelling and creative than the palette swaps we're used to in Smash Bros.

  • Im really digging that there will be actual alternate costumes now, instead of just pallet swaps.

  • I hope Mega Man has a Mega Man X costume, or, much less likely, a Viewtiful Joe one.
  • I want this game so badly....

  • This is terrific. With adding more whimsical characters, this game stays fun. Nice Choice, but what will he do? -Jack
  • This is cool, but why do the female versions have the same hairstyle? I was hoping one of them would have the triple pigtail thing...

  • Awesome!
