Mewtwo Awakened

Rumor – Mewtwo’s Awakened Form to Appear in Super Smash Bros.?

Just a quick rumor-blurb: in case you haven’t already seen this, the idea of Mewtwo’s new “Awakened” form in Pokemon X & Y was a topic of discussion during last week’s Pokemon Developer Roundtable. During the event, Nintendo World Report asked the developers the following question:

Can you go into more detail on how Mewtwo changes forms, and would you like this new form to appear in the new Smash Bros.?

Apparently, the Pokemon devs were silent about the process of Mewtwo changing forms…on the other hand, Masahiro Sakurai (lead director of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. titles for 3DS & Wii U) spoke up from the crowd, saying “We are thinking about it” in regards to the Awakened Mewtwo appearing in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U.

I feel like Mewtwo’s Awakened form would be a pretty solid substitute for Lucario, who was introduced in Brawl – as much as I enjoy Lucario, Mewtwo was pretty popular in Melee, and it would make a lot of sense for his new form to appear in the latest installment (particularly after the release of Pokemon X & Y.)
