Bringing Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII on a HD screen? It seems that not Sony, but Nintendo is actually taking that honor with Super Smash!
During the E3 we learned that Cloud was reappearing with a remake of Final Fantasy VII. It seems that the hype also hit Nintendo because when I woke up this morning it turned out that Cloud Strife is joining the fight in Super Smash bros. for the Wii U/3DS. With tears of nostalgic in my eyes I looked at the trailer and my mind was blown. Another non-Nintendo character joins Super Smash and this is one of epic proportions. During the Nintendo Direct of last night, the first one after the passing of the beloved Satoru Iwata, we saw the revealing of Cloud in Super Smash. If you haven’t already seen it, then check the trailer of Cloud in Super Smash out down below:
Cloud in Super Smash bros. trailer
Cloud is the next DLC character to appear after Mextwo and Lucas. Although details about a releasedate and/or price haven’t been revealed yet, I do think that we can play with Cloud in Super Smash before the ending of this year.
Nobody saw it coming, at least I didn’t! I had some character wishes and predictions for Smash, but they still remain to (hopefully) being announced. And although Cloud is epic, I just never expected it.
Check out some of the screens of Cloud Strife I took from the trailer:
Pretty epic! And just as with Ryu in Super Smash, Nintendo has managed to some how integrate typical gameplay mechanics into the fighter. With his regular custom and his special custom from Final Fantasy Advent Children, Cloud will not be missed.
Cloud also brings his “homestage” Midgar with him. Fighting on this stage will be sure for some epic fights with a lot stuff happening on the back- and foreground. Several bosses of Final Fantasy 7 also appear on the stage and they will make sure that the stage will get a totally new look & feel. Playing with these kinds of elements will make every fight feel brand new. Accepted if you play the Omega Version of it.
The site of Super Smash only give that as information, so its waiting for more information:
Now it’s only waiting for the reveal trailer of the Cloud Strife Amiibo!
Extra announcements in December for Super Smash
The trailer (here above) and the Nintendo Direct ended with a special announcement; in December there will be an extra Nintendo Direct with presumable the outcome of the Fighter Ballot. I’m still hoping that Banjo & Kazoo will join the fight but especially after the announcement of Cloud, I know one thing for sure. Everything is possible!
