Alongside the sixth wave of Mii Costume character skins, Bayonetta and Corrin will enter the Smash Bros arena on the 3rd of February. The gun-boot wielding witch has been heavily requested by European and NA players extensively while Corrin is the latest character from the critically acclaimed turn-based RPG Fire Emblem.
Although the prices are a bit hefty, with Bayonetta costing $5.99 if you want to unlock her on one system or $6.99 if you want her on both the Wii-U and the 3DS. But she does come with her own arena in the form of the Umbral Clock Tower, making this purchase more or less worth it. Besides, who doesn’t want to kill Link or Pikachu by shooting at him with your gun boots or by using your magical hair powers while at the same time looking as sexy and stunning as one can possibly hope to look?
Corrin is a bit cheaper in comparison to Bayonetta, due to the fact that he doesn’t come with his own Fire Emblem themed stage. If you want to use him on only one game system, you will have to pay $4,99 or one dollar more if you want him on your 3DS as well.
Besides their character DLCs for Super Smash Bros., both of them are also planned to receive Amiibo figurines in the near future. But given the fact that the previous DLC character, Ryu and Roy, are getting their Amiibos on the 16th of March, fans and collectors will have to wait a little bit more until they can add the witch and the knight to their figurine collection.
In regards to the newly added Mii Costumes, they come in the form of skins themed on Tails and Knuckles from Sonic, Ashley from WarioWare, Takamaru from Nazo no Murasame-jo, Gil from Tower of Druaga and an unaffiliated Bionic Armor. This pack is priced at $4,50 for one system or $6,90 for both.
If you want to purchase all of the items mentioned above in one neatly packed bundle, the option is available on the Nintendo E-shop for the weird price of $15,48 for one console or $19,88 for both. Even if at first glance it might seem rather pricey, Smash Bros. Fans will buy them regardless, especially if one of the two characters proves to be a viable combatant in tournaments and competitions.
Bearing in mind that Bayonetta and Corrin will enter the Smash Bros arena on the 3rd of February, players will have to just wait and see which of the two combatants fare best in the arena. Either way, it’s safe to say that Bayonetta will have some rather over-the-top attacks and abilities, given the fact that the games starring her are some of the best spectacle-fighter games ever developed.
