Ridley in Smash Bros. – but it’s not what you’re thinking

Earlier today, in the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Direct, it was announced that our one-and-only Ridley will eventually show up in the Pyrosphere stage. Unlike a regular stage obstacle, however, if a player deals a certain amount of damage to him, Ridley will fight alongside that player. Knocking out Ridley will earn a point in time-based matches!

Additionally, certain Metroid enemies like Zeros show up in Pyrosphere, and the Norfair stage from Super Smash Bros. Brawl returns for the Wii U game.
