Of Course, Yoshi Is In The New Smash Bros.

By Spencer . April 8, 2014 . 3:50pm


Nintendo confirmed Yoshi will return for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. title for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. One change is Yoshi stands completely upright in this game.


The egg throwing dinosaur is joined by Sheik who is a selectable character and Zero Suit Samus. Charizard was also promoted to a playable character on his own instead of one of Pokémon Trainer’s minions. Greninja from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y is new to the Smash series.

    I was told by a seemingly reliable source he was removed but it turns out the source was a liar. I’m incredibly disappointed right now.

    • AkuLord3

      Disappointed from the lie? or Disappointed its not true? and if not then disappointed but happy?!

      • Symbol de Au

        I don’t like Yoshi. That’s my answer.

        • samjosiah

          Yoshi doesn’t like you.

          • Zero_Destiny

            Yoshi is a pretty likable guy, he’ll forgive him! ^^

            Or maybe he’ll eat ’em and poop ’em out as an egg. But that sounds like an interesting life experience one could put down in their autobiography!

    It’s funny watching people clamoring for yoshi, as if he wasn’t a given

  • Freud_Hater

    Oh, joy. That’s a total surprise.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Now everyone can stand upright all the time!

  • Kaihedgie

    Yosheee~ <3

  • I think Sakurai got sick of everyone’s bitching. I got sick of it myself, but then again, I was part of it. xD

    • Vash bane

      lol about what? Yoshi’s stance?

      • About Yoshi not being announced when he was one of the original 8 unlocked from the start in the first game.

  • luckgandor

    Well, at least the 3DS can have 1 good game with Yoshi in it.

  • And so the original 8 are assembled at last (Just need three of the four original secret characters and all SSB64 characters are here.)

  • Niermyico

    It took 4 Smash Bros games and probably physical therapy to have Yoshi finally standing up straight. You can’t blame him with having Mario and everyone else ridding him.

    Yoshi is my main character so I’m really glad that they finally showed him.
