Lucas is the second DLC character for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS, with the legendary Pokemon “Mewtwo” releasing last month. More DLC characters are planned for the future, with some being determined by popular vote. Alongside the release of Lucas on June 14, Nintendo is launching the Miiverse stage for free in an update to the game. Finally, Nintendo is releasing a set of costumes based off the recently released shooter Splatoon. Although no pricing has been announced for these costumes, previous costumes have cost $0.75 each, if bought for one version of the game. They also release in a bundle for both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game at the price of $1.15.
