Final Fantasy VII’s Cloud is coming to Super Smash Bros. By Erren Van Duine on November 12, 2015 at 6:19 PM

Final Fantasy VII’s very own Cloud Strife will be slashing his way into Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, Nintendo revealed today during their most recent Direct broadcast.

Alongside a new trailer, the company revealed more information is set for a special broadcast later this year. Check out the trailer below.

  • WHAT. THE. F**K.

  • SNK

    What the hell! That’s SO AWESOME! Who would predict this?
    Well, I’m inclined to say the remake will come to the NX as well.

  • Wazi the pa

    An unexpected surprise.

  • CocaineCowboyFF7

    Look legitimately awesome.

  • Kaoru La Kaoru

    I’m still screaming about this in my head.
    …And thankfully (for my neighbors’ sake) not out loud anymore.

  • stevenm281

    He couldnt be in the Playstation equivalent but yes in Nintendo’s?

    low blow.

  • Dick

    Wish they’d made him look manlier. Looks like he’s wearing eyeliner.

  • Jesus Christ

    lol square enix has a habit of making their male characters with soft feature. Squal is a very nice example of this. He looks so … beautiful.

    *cough cough ocugh* what I mean is that I’m a straight conservative bible person. I am real jesus.

  • Adrian

    Pretty excited to hear the music that comes with the midgar stage. Smash and final fantasy are my two favorite series so needless to say, this is awesome.

  • Martian Wong

    Despite I dont have a Wii U, all the musics bring back good memories.

  • SomniaGAF

    Not going to get Smash, but if they do a Cloud Amiibo I will be buying it.

  • Preston Ray

    My body was not ready

  • Dick

    Yes you are, Lord. Please accept my sincerest apologies from this contemptible human being.

  • Jesus Christ

    Thank you. I love D…k

    wait, pause

    but seriously, take a look at the male protagonists in the franchise, they all have feminine qualities.

  • Dick

    Oh I know, I just enjoyed that Cloud in particular had a more rough-androgynous look.

  • Jesus Christ

    I understand. You like what you like. I won’t fight it. If you want to sleep with him, go right to hell,… I mean ahead. LOLOL 🙂

  • I’m surprised not a lot of people even figured out that the trailer was FF7-related based on the visuals and music before it even showed the logo.

  • Azuardo

    I immediately thought it was FF7R being revealed for NX… Then quickly switched to thinking it was the upcoming FF7 port for Wii U. Can recognise that intro and music anywhere!

  • Yeah, I thought it was coming to the Wii U for a sec. I’m thinking it wasn’t the ballot, though.

  • Azuardo

    Yeah, thinking the same thing. Will be interesting to see how many of the top voted characters they create, or if it’s only number 1.

  • I’m thinking its probably the top 5, or something, not just one.

  • The Individual Eleven

    I know right. There hasnt been a FF game on a Nintendo cobsole for years but Cloud is in Smash Bros.

  • stevenm281

    His presence alone would have made me buy the game, but I’m not buying a console for this.


    Err.. thats not how the Omnislash is sposed to be portrayed but hey, Clouds here at least, his Ultimate shoulve been shown with a cutscene but oh well.
    Add Shephi now

  • Dick

    But I just enjoy seeing a manly character, they’re always overdone or not done these days. 🙁

  • Jesus Christ

    Cor Leonis is manly.

  • stevenm281

    so are Gladiolus, Snow, Basch, Auron, etc.

    There’s always one in each FF.

  • Dick

    Fair point, well made.

  • Dick

    Fair point.

  • Jesus Christ

    I’m not sorry but every time I see your username, I visualize …. it. LMAO Sigh. Amma just think you as Richard.

  • Jesus Christ

    Mmmm yum Basch and his twin brother is very mmmm clean shaven. Maybe some a little bit of hair. Look ike that classic male model at the ending cinematic movie of FF12.

  • Dick

    Rich works.
