Palutena, the Goddess of Light from the Kid Icarus series, has joined the Super Smash Bros. roster! Her introduction to the fighting series is one of the most unique so far: via an animated short featuring Link and Pit brawling in the clouds. Palutena appears and deflects an attack away from Pit, only to let him know that she’s going to be fighting, too! The video then shifts to gameplay footage, where a myriad of the goddess’ attacks are shown, including what seems to be her Final Smash.
“I’m here for a little, uhh…divine intervention.”
At the very end, a more menacing character appears: Dark Pit. It is currently unknown whether he’ll make an actual appearance within the game (playable or otherwise), but it’s pretty exciting, regardless!
