Just last week Nintendo announced Super Mario's Princess Peach would be returning to the game.

Other mainstays to the game include: Mario, Luigi, Link, Samus, Kirby, Fox, Pikachu, Bowser, Donkey Kong, and Pit.

New characters for the game include: the Villager from Animal Crossing, Wii Fit Trainer, Pikmin & Olimar from Pikmin and legendary video game character Mega Man.

Earlier today game director Masahiro Sakurai revealed Samus from the Metroid series would be getting an upgrade on her most powerful attack, the charge shot.

The charge shot is one of her most powerful attacks and is good from long distances. The only downfall of the move was it took a long time to execute, leaving the character vulnerable for attack and unlikely to constantly go for the shot.

Sakurai told Mii Gamer that the charge shot was "drastically improved," and that the whole process would be faster, along with the move being more powerful.

"The Speed and Power of Samus's Charge Shot has been drastically improved. However, that could potentially put her in danger in occasion," he said.

This will be the first time the series comes to a handheld system, as it will release on the Wii U and 3DS sometime in 2014.

The game can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
