alph smash (1)Sakurai officially announced a new character for the Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U roster. The character is none other than Alph from Pikmin 3. He’s actually just a variation of Olimar with the same skill set, however, he is a different character. Great, right?

He officially said:

Pic of the day. The hero from Pikmin 3, Alph joins the battle!! He has pretty much the same set skills as Olimar since he’s basically just his variation. He can’t use Rock Pikmin either.

They are different characters, so they each get their own title treatment on the character-selection screen. See? It says Alph.
