King Dedede will once more be playable in Super Smash Bros. on 3DS and Wii U, Nintendo recently confirmed.
A rotund hammer-wielding villain from the Kirby series, Dedede was proclaimed as returning for the most recent instalments long ago via SmashBros.com.
Smash Bros. series boss Masahiro Sakurai first introduced Dedede to the series with Wii instalment Brawl. A devotee of the Kirby series, Sakurai in the past directed half a dozen Kirby titles.
Dedede is the 21st playable character confirmed for the approaching Smash Bros. games that are due for release at some point this year.
