The last ever Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros happened today, and revealed Fire Emblem Fate's Corrin as well as Bayonetta as playable characters.



Corrin and Bayonetta will each cost $4.99 on either version of the game, or $5.99 on both, and will be available in February. Previously announced Cloud Strife will be available for download for $4.99, or $5.99 for both versions, starting today. Alongside your Cloud download, you will also receive a brand new stage from Final Fantasy, based on the city of Midgar. Midgar will feature "Summon Materia" that lets players summon monsters that affect the stage. When Bayonetta is released in February, an Umbra Clock Tower stage will also become available and will feature appearances from Bayonetta series angels.

All of the new characters will also be getting Amiibo, at a date to be announced in the future. Last but not least, a whole bunch of Mii Fighter costumes will be added to Smash Bros in the coming months:



That Chocobo hat is awfully cute.

Japan's Nikkei Newspaper is reporting that Hideo Kojima's days at Konami are finally done, so we can all be free from the emotional roller coaster that has been rumors of his departure from the game company.

After countless reports of mistreatment, weird branding moves that minimized Kojima's involvement in his own series, and that one time Konami tried to pretend he was just on vacation, it looks like Kojima's really left Konami, and he's starting his own company!

From Nikkei, translated by NeoGAF user Zefah:

Kojima Hideo, a famous video game creator known for the Metal Gear series has left Konami Digital Entertainment as of December 15th. He will form a new company where he will continue developing video games, with plans to release on platforms such as Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE)'s PlayStation. He is forming the new company with people who worked under him at Konami. The rights to the Metal Gear series, for which he is most known, remain at Konami, so he will begin working on an all new title. Final negotiations with SCE are underway for this new game to debut on PlayStation.


I for one can't wait to see what he does with a new series. What about you?
