A female villager approaches! Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed in his latest Miiverse post that players will be able to select a Girl Villager as well as the boy version we’ve seen so far.

Lovely, indeed. The Villager is representing Nintendo’s quaint life-sim Animal Crossing, a series hardly known for its fisticuffs. The screenshot from the Wii U version of the game also hints at the ability to customise the character, showing different outfits and hairstyles for both the boy and girl villager. That’s more in keeping with the Animal Crossing spirit.
Super Smash Bros. is out this summer on 3DS, with the Wii U release following in time for Christmas.
Thanks, Nintendo Life.
