After a good while of lackluster updates, tonight’s is a real doozy. Captain Olimar from the Pikmin games has joined Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character and with Pikmin in tow!

The Pikmin are more than just Olimar’s fans, however. You can pluck them from the ground, just like in the Pikmin games, and they’ll fight alongside you as your allies.

They’re even more crucial than you might think! Without them, poor Olimar can’t even do his smash attack. They’re useful little guys, to be sure. So make you hold on to them!

Along with the announcement of Olimar and his Pikmin, Super Smash Bros. Dojo has also updated with the song that will be played for the Pikmin level. To check out it, you can head on over to their site by clicking the link above.

The arena is getting pretty full. What other characters do you think will enter the fray?
