Nintendo didn’t share much in the way of new games during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation, but the publisher still managed to rile the Internet with a pair of fantastic character announcements. The celebration started when we learned that the female Link finally has a name (it’s Linkle), and then continued when Nintendo brought your crossover fiction to life with the news that Cloud Strife (of Final Fantasy VII fame) will soon be a playable character in Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and 3DS.
That’s right. Cloud Strife is going to throw down with Mario, Pikachu, and the Wii Fit Trainer in a cartoon fighting game in which beloved mascots beat the ever-loving hell out of each other in the most implicitly violent way imaginable.
Cloud is coming to Smash Bros., proving that sometimes dreams really can come true.
