Super Smash Bros. Brawl Character Update: Captain Olimar Joins the Fray!


It’s been so LONG since any new characters were unveiled for Super Smash Bros. Brawl that it appeared that perhaps no more were coming, especially with the game’s release date just around the corner. But surprise, surprise, a new Challenger Approaching warning has been issued over at the Smash Bros. DOJO!! today, introducing Captain Olimar of Pikmin fame as the latest playable character to join the Brawl roster. Sweet! Now if only Nintendo would make a full Wii Pikmin game already, but that’s a topic for another day…

Anyways… according to the brief introduction, Captain Olimar will have five colors of Pikmin fighting at his side. His trusty Pikmin will also be essential to unleashing his Smash Attack. Head over to the DOJO!! for additional info, screenshots and a sample audio track from the Pikmin: World Map theme music.
