Soon after Super Smash Bros. for 3DS launched, Nintendo announced that Mewtwo, a favorite of Smash Bros. Melee, would make his triumphant return to the series as DLC for the latest Smash. Fans who purchased and registered both games would get to play him for free, and now we know when. And if you didn’t jump through those hoops, you can still get the Legendary Pokemon too… you’ll just have to wait a little bit longer.
Those who registered both games will get a free download code on April 15 that will unlock the psychic beast in both versions. Mewtwo will be purchasable for everyone else on April 28. The character will cost $4 in each version, or you can unlock him in both simultaneously for $5.
Mother 3 is the the white whale of Nintendo fans worldwide, as the cult RPG has yet to see official release outside of Japan. The closest fans got was seeing Mother 3’s protagonist, Lucas, as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Lucas was left out of the latest Smash, but he will make a comeback as a DLC character this summer.
Though based on Ness, Lucas has a distinct moveset all his own, and now fans will finally get to test the blonde youngster’s skills against his old rivals and new challengers alike. Planned for sometime in June, no price has been given yet for Lucas, though presumably it’ll fall in line with Mewtwo’s asking price.
