'Super Smash Bros.' DLC: Bayonetta and Corrin Get Release Date

'Super Smash Bros.' DLC: Bayonetta and Corrin Get Release Date

Bayonetta | Sega/Nintendo

After waiting for more than a month, "Super Smash Bros." can now finally add Bayonetta and Corrin from "Fire Emblem Fates" to their character roster. Nintendo has recently revealed the two new characters' release date.

Bayonetta and the new Umbra Clock Tower Stage

The Umbra Witch Bayonetta from the video game of the same name comes to Nintendo 3DS and Wii U on Feb. 3. Players can buy the new character, along with the Umbra Clock Tower Stage, for $5.99 on both consoles.

Bayonetta has in her arsenal attacks such as Bullet Arts and Witch Time. The first attack makes use of all her four guns, two each in both hands and feet, while Witch Time allows the witch to slow down time. She can also call upon the limbs of the demon Madama Butterfly in her attacks.

The new stage is a re-creation of the opening scene "The Falling Clock Tower" from the original game. The new Umbra Clock Tower Stage features a falling arena that passes through Purgatorio and more.

Bayonetta is a fan-favorite. Her addition to the title is based on Nintendo's Fighter Ballot poll where she was in the top 5 in the United States, no. 1 in Europe, and no. 1 worldwide.

"Fire Emblem Fates'" Corrin joins the fight

Corrin of "Fire Emblem Fates" will be available on "Super Smash Bros." at the same time as Bayonetta. The character comes with a female version and can be purchased for $4.99 on the 3DS and Wii U.

Corrin will have his legendary blade Yato, which takes its final form, Omega Yato, in the game. The character has dragon blood in his veins, and players can see him transform certain parts of his body into that of a dragon during matches.

Nintendo announced the addition of Bayonetta and Corrin back in December. During that time, Cloud from the "Final Fantasy" franchise joined "Super Smash Bros."
