Get prepared to see a ton of Nintendo news today, and first out of the gate is that Shulk from Xenoblade is finally confirmed for the upcoming Wii U and 3DS Super Smash Bros. games.

His appearance has been the subject of multiple leaks lately and was discussed on this week’s upcoming episode of The SML Podcast, but now we have 100% confirmation so those leaks sure have a lot of validity now!

More news for US gamers is that if you buy both the 3DS and Wii U Smash Bros. games and register them on Club Nintendo, you’ll score yourself Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U: Premium Sound Selection, a soundtrack disc packed with music from the series! I was sold on both games anyway, this just sweetens the deal!
