The returning fighter first appeared in the series' Wii entry, Smash Bros. Brawl.

Meta Knight's Brawl appearance was deemed too powerful by some - leading to the character been banned from some professional tournaments.

Perhaps in response, Smash series boss Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that the new game's Meta Knight will feature a changed moveset.

"Meta Knight's Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game," Sakurai explained via Miiverse. "The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move."

Meta Knight is the 37th playable character to be confirmed for the game. Brawl had 39 - just how many more will the 3DS and Wii U entries add?
