Final Fantasy is one of the most highly-regarded series of video games that’s ever been released. The series started out on Nintendo, then moved to PlayStation, and now they’re everywhere. MMORPGs, video games, and all kinds of other things are now featuring Final Fantasy characters, and now one of the series’ most beloved characters is joining the most beloved fighting game around. Final Fantasy 7′s Cloud Strife is joining Super Smash Brothers Wii U.
The weird thing is that Cloud has never really been on a Nintendo platform, aside from an appearance on Kingdom Hearts for Game Boy Advanced and a couple of 3DS music games. However, Cloud comes with a whole lot of fun extras, like Chocobo outfits for Mii Fighter, a Midgard-themed stage, some very cool fighting moves, and an alternate Advent Children costume. He’ll also become an Amiibo figure at some point.
It’s a sign of new cooperation between Square and Nintendo. It’s also probably a really good move for both parties, sparking interest in both Smash Brothers and Final Fantasy. After all, lots of sites, including this one, are writing about it.Technorati Tags: cloud joins smash brothers, cloud smash brothers wii u, cloud strife, ff7's cloud joins smash brothers, final fantasy 7, nintendo, nintendo wii-u, smash brothers, super smash brothers, super smash brothers wii u, wii u
