Captain Olimar joins Smash Bros. roster

Brings Pikmin friends. Wants Mario.

Captain Olimar is the latest to join a host of Nintendo celebrities in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

He will bring with him five different types of Pikmin to help smother his opponents, each plucked from the ground before being ordered around.

However, without his little plant-like allies he is virtually powerless, unable to even pull off a Smash Attack. Pikmin won't live for very long, either, and will scatter rather easily. Best be tactical.

Olimar joins other newcomers Pit, Wario, Zero Suit Samus, Ike, Pokmon Trainer, Diddy Kong, Meta Knight, Solid Snake, Lucas, Sonic and King Dedede in the upcoming Wii fighter.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl will be out in Europe in Q2 2008.
