    What a knockout! Incredible.

  • 하세요

    His moveset looks amazing.

    • God

      Damnit, now i NEED a Wii U…

  • He’s back to RELEASE THE BOGUS!

    • AuraGuyChris

      You’re confusing someone else with him.

      • I may, but the thing is, that line is practically it’s own title-affiliated meme.

  • leingod

    Awesome! Finally a character that’s an actual surprise! He looks fresh, fun to play, and… really short :P

    I wonder what Bonus-kun from Waku Waku 7 is doing there, though.

    • Slayven19

      WFT was a surprise and so was megaman. Honestly Little mac was like the most obvious surprise and people were guessing him since the boxing ring stage. Super glad he’s in though but a surprise he ain’t.

      • leingod

        He was a surprise for me at least. WFT and Megaman were a surprise too, but it’s been some time since that. Then came Luigi… and Peach… and Fox… and *yawn* …

        That’s what I meant when I said “FINALLY” .. that it had been a long time since there was an interesting Smash announcement.

    • Steven Hunt

      That’s Sandbag from previous Smash games.

      • leingod

        Oh, he has an uncanny resemblance to Bonus Kun :P

  • Muffum

    Oh my god he looks so fun.

    I found a new main.

  • digitaldevil0
  • Jaeger Knighty

    I sold my ticket to the chocolate convention for THIS?!

    • Ben Ruiz

      You guys know that this is a quote in the actual Punch-Out Wii game right?

      • Jaeger Knighty

        Apparently nobody got it. Shame.

  • makubexnas
  • SlickRoach

    I’m glad Little Mac is finally playable! Wish he would have replaced Wii Fit Trainer with him so they didn’t have to waste a character slot but it’s better than nothing.

    • Link

      How is it wasting a character slot? Sakurai can add as many or as little characters as he wants. Just because one gets in doesnt mean its a wasted spot….

      • Slayven19

        Leave him alone, surprised people are still stuck in that mindset of his. Best not to argue with him.

        • SlickRoach

          Stuck in the mindset of not sharing the same opinion as everyone else???

      • Time Sage

        The only limits are time they’re willing to spend and the amount of data they can fit on a disc/cart

    • Kaihedgie

      Why do we still have these comments?

    • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

      a waste of character slot would be Mii, Toad, Toon Zelda, Daisy, Ridley and Funky Kong.

  • Punny Fuzz

    Can Someone explain his Final Smash?

    • Muffum

      He turns into Giga Mac (or whatever it’s called) from the Wii Punch-Out’s multiplayer mode.

  • Earthjolly

    that trailer was gold

  • Charles Parker

    His trainer was my favorite part of the trailer.

  • Shadowman

    I love the art style in this trailer

  • Slayven19

    Insta main confirmed! Now just give me palutena and I’m set for mains.

  • TheGioG

    Doc Louis: C’mon Mac Baby! Keep those punches comin’! MAKE CAPTAIN FALCON PROUD!!
    Captain Falcon:… Elevenouttaten.

  • KingGunblader

    First Assist Trophy to get an upgrade! I wonder if any others will follow… like Kururin, for example.

  • PreyMantis

    Called it.

  • Learii

    I knew he be in now where Pac-man XD

  • C_Diamond

    Let’s fight like gentlemen…

    • 하세요

      He totally reminds me of Dudley and Balrog (M.Bison for you JP SF players) fused together.

  • Chaos_Knight

    Here’s a look of his power meter. I think it’s a pretty cool addition. I just hope he’s not too OP.

    • it looks like he has to be in a stance power it up it up from damage. Also I think they just sped up the charge for the trailer it might be nerfed in the final game

      • KoRLumen

        I think it might be based on combo strings, actually o:

        I think it’s likely that the bar decreases over time if you don’t hit anything, too.

        • yeah now that i see the trailer again you might be right

    • Gemlit

      Think this could be for all characters?

      • AuraGuyChris

        Sure, if they all came out from Punch-Out!!

      • Chaos_Knight

        Did you not notice Bowser’s and Mega Man’s icon?

        • Gemlit

          This time around I did not notice the icon.

    • Guest

      Did you not see Bowser’s and Mega Man’s icon?

    • MrJechgo

      Too OP? Nah, I doubt it, Mac seems to have strong attack power and lightning speed, but crappy range and defense.

      • Chaos_Knight

        And he’s supposed to be pretty bad in the air too. (According to the coach that is.)

  • Vash bane

    he looks like a speedster and I agree his move set looks cool

  • Bunzi

    I wonder if Doc comments all the time or if that’s just for the trailer?

  • fireemblembeast

    I thought they might make him playable since they made that Wii Punch Out since then. Looks pretty fun!

  • celery

    Every time they announce a new character I always say “There’s my new main!” That’s a good thing lol

  • anthony apduhan

    Well done Nintendo as expected…

  • monkey king

    Thanks, for showing me another character I now have to main.

  • Jettythesunfish

    Looks like another interesting character I’ll have to try out.

  • Ardus

    Did not see this coming. I wonder what other newcomers we can expect.

  • Asura

    TBFP are gonna be so happy.

    • TruSpindash

      When this started the direct my first thought was “Matt must be freaking out right now”.

  • ZEROthefirst

    If you’re out there god make this grin go away… it’s starting to hurt now.
    On a more serious side Mac looks amazing in this so far and I can’t wait to try him out when the game comes out. My next and last real hope for a character is Isaac from Golden Sun (I’d say replace Snake with Django from Boktai too, but I know that won’t happen)… I swear if he got in then I’d have Mega Man, Little Mac and Isaac, only downside is I think I’d die of a happiness over-dose before the game comes out.

  • Eder García

    my main arrived :)

  • MrJechgo

    Hope the Punch-Out!! theme gets remixed too :)

  • venomryu

    the tallest man is he last man standing

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    no bikes are going to be stolen ever again

  • Triplicity

    His initial cut-in and subsequent scene with Samus looks like something right outta Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Awesome.

  • fairysun

    Man, there should be a punch out mini game in Smash where Little Mac boxes against all characters with all their gimmicks(Pikachu can shock Mac, etc). Heck, I would even pay full price for that game.

  • Yan Zhao

    This was the hypest smash reveal trailer yet!

  • awkwardkorean

    Disrespectful samus deserved that kidney blasting right hook.

  • AndyLC

    HIs Smash Form should’ve been a transformation into Mike Tyson
