Phew, OK. Wii Fit trainer gal wasn’t Nintendo’s only special announcement. Nintendo just shared a few details on Mega Man, who will be joining Super Smash Bros. as a new playable fighter, too.


Mega Man will have his Leaf Shield and Flame Sword attacks in the game. He uses Rush as his double jump, and also has access to a Metal Blade and Crash Bombs. Mega Man can also do a slide attack.


When he gets KOed, he splits into atoms like the NES games.
