This is certainly an announcement we didn’t expect to see coming. At the end of Nintendo’s big Direct, after flooding us with information, Nintendo had one last bang to bring us. We were looking for Smash news, and this was it. A big trailer… announcing a crossover between Square Enix’s Final Fantasy. And not just Final Fantasy, but Final Fantasy VII. Cloud Strife is making his way to the fighter, and comes with his Limit Breaker and his classic costumes with giant broadsword in tow.

More information on Cloud’s release will be featured in a special Smash Bros. Broadcast, taking place in December. We’ll update you as that time nears with more information.
