One of the most commonly requested fighters for Super Smash Bros. has been Donkey Kong villain King K. Rool. He didn’t make it into the roster for Smash Bros. on Wii U (nor its DLC), but his day has finally come! Today’s Nintendo Direct concluded with a hilarious reveal trailer for the reptilian King, followed by a look at some of his attacks in action.
K. Rool will make use of some of his more recognizable attacks from the Donkey Kong Country games in Smash. This includes pummeling opponents with his boxing gloves and throwing his crown, which returns like a boomerang. It also appears that his Final Smash will be that giant, deadly laser weapon that he intended to use to destroy Kong Island in Donkey Kong 64.
