Cloud in Super Smash Bros. will make your Final Fantasy come true

Cloud Strife, the spiky-haired hero from Final Fantasy 7, will battle Mario, Samus, Pikachu and the rest of Nintendo's mascots when he joins Super Smash Bros. as a DLC character You may commence squealing for joy.

Unfortunately, no release date was given during the Nintendo Direct on which he was announced, but Nintendo teased a Smash Bros.- focused presentation for next month. So perhaps we'll find out more then. (Sidenote: Cloud amiibo? Pleeeeeease, Nintendo?)

Until that time, please enjoy a picture of the blonde hero getting ready to perform his Limit Break. Because of course his Final Smash would be a Limit Break.
