The Wii Fit trainer was revealed at E3 as a new playable character for Super Smash Bros., but today’s screenshot from Super Smash Bros. development confirms there will be a female and male model for the Wii Fit Trainer. This shot was released as a standard development shot instead of the announcement of a newcomer, so it’s likely that this is just a costume swap for the Wii Fit Trainer instead of being considered a new character.

There’s still no official release date for the game yet, but keep your eyes peeled as we still have plenty more characters to be revealed as the release date gets closer.

    At first I was hesitant to purchase this game…but now it’s a day one buy!


    • Lusunup

      how can you hesitate? it’s smash!

  • CEObrainz

    Hopefully this means we will see more skins for characters in this game.

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog


  • Truthteller

    My god, Nintendo knows how to astonish the public! This make it a MUST-BUY now!

    • Superstick98

      It already was a must buy.

  • BIG Franky

    bleh…. kinda lame.

  • iamserious

    This is super lame.

    • Ventusblade

      I know right, talk about cheap

      • ChubbiestLamb6

        you know it’s only a skin and doesn’t take up a slot in the roster right?

        • DragonSilths

          I don’t see where it says that on the site…

          • ETeach

            Seriously, just read the article…

    • iamserious

      …”but today’s screenshot from Super Smash Bros. development confirms there will be a female and male model for the Wii Fit Trainer”… I just realized this probably means it is not a whole different character it’s just a skin. So if that’s the case, I retract my statement about this being lame.

    I like how they did this. Now if I want to play as Wii Fit trainer, Im not forced to be a woman. 😀 I would love for them to announce some new characters already. Would like to see one of the other hunters from the Metroid series become playable. Then theres plenty of X / Y pokemon to choose from. Oh and Little Mac from Punch Out NES. That would be a really cool character to have.

    • DragonSilths

      There will only be like 2 more NEW NEW characters in Smash Bros 4. And with Pic Of The Day lasting like what another 8 months or so who knows when those 2 days will be.

  • I’ve been asking about adding better alterations to the Link and Zelda character models in this game, something to give homage to all the games in the Zelda series.

    • Ventusblade

      Just stop it, it’s not funny

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Can you say it easyer for me i don’t understand it so much about it

  • Rugmouse

    Can you imagine how mad people will be when they get trounced by Male trainer? And here I thought getting beat by a Yoga instructor couldn’t sting any more. Seriously can’t wait to play as Male Trainer.

  • Arthur Jarret

    Hm, I’m disappointed:

    I expected a Zombi U / Resident evil Revelations HD – themed article as the first article today.
    Maybe even an exposé on ghost & dark pokemon…

    A Luigi’s mansion retrospect, maybe?
    Or how about rumors of Eternal Darkness 2?


    You know, with mario bros. 3 was release in 1988 – which means this is Boo’s 25th anniversary…
    I expected more on the Halloween day of Boo’s 25th anniversary.

    I also gave some article tips (with sources) yesterday – a notification of ‘thanks, but no thanks’ – or ‘we know already’ would be nice if they’re not used – as such an on-site php e-mail script is a bit fickle and I’ve got no guarantee the message has been received.

    If not received, I’ll use google plus from now on to contact for article tips.

    • An internet nobody demanding recognition and meeting said demands?

      Good luck with that.

      • Arthur Jarret

        Huh, what are you on?
        I merely inquired wether e-mails sent through this sites ‘tip us’ link arrive on their destination – as I used to get at least a note it was read just a short while ago.

        The rest was just an introductory way of mentioning it was Boo’s 25th birthday – which is fitting regarding the date.

    • Mipaol80

      An Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem sequel would be awesome, that was one of my all-time favorite N64 games, the storyline had a real H.P. Lovecraft feel to it.

      • Arthur Jarret

        I’ll never forget the opening quote from Dante’s inferno.

        “Deep into that darkness peering. Long I stood there. Wondering, fearing, doubting”

        The insanity effects were amazing and the secret ending just screamed ‘sequel’. (Actual sequel, no ‘spiritual sequel’)

  • Jacob D. Taylor

    I’m personally glad to see the alternate skins. I’ve been wanting since the first Smash Bros to see diffrent character skins instead of just crappy color swaps. Having the Zora Tunic from Twilight Princess on Link would be awesome, or a homage to doctor Mario. Dark Samus? Etc.

    • SleepySkullhead

      Yeah, I want to see Dr. Mario come back as a skin swap. With or without the pills.

    • Ryebread

      maybe an actually daisy character this time?

      • German2508

        I don’t think Daisy could actually be a new character. I think Daisy would just be a copy of Peach like Ganon is to Capitan Falco.

    • LopsidedPasta

      Dark aura pokemon from colosseum, Yarn Kirby, Paper mario, there are SOOO many possibilities

  • CaesarGood

    no creative sense…

  • Simon Stevens

    I think I speak for Reggie when I say this “meh”

  • farrellbr

    I have no idea what to think about this

  • Could just be an assist trophy.

  • RockieOllie

    Alternate costumes!

  • Jon

    I believe this is just a skin for the Wii fit Trainer, if you notice there is nothing saying “new character” in the list there

    • Josiah Parsons

      I sure hope so. Talk about a waste of a new character.

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        no it is a skin on the website there is notice that is a new character

        • Josiah Parsons

          Thank Goodness.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            No Problem

  • John Andalora

    Well I suppose if one got people really really excited, two would only make them EVEN MORE EXCITED!

    Me… Another reason why I’ll hold off to purchase this.

  • Ventusblade

    Yay! Another shitty character added! 😀

  • tinted

    This idea for the pokemon trainer would be kinda cool

  • MetroidZero

    It’s very likely it’s a character skin. Just like Wario’s alternate costumes in Brawl. And thank God, we got a good update this week.

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      yeah but this week isn’t over tomorrow there is a new update

    • Mario

      Yeah. But they’ll obviously have different voices.

  • bizzy gie

    This means customizable swaps for every character!

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      or the customization characters are made from mii’s or a character that you create so there’s 3 options

  • jreed3842

    I’m excited that the alternate costumes change the physical appearance drastically. So this means an alternate costume for Peach could actually look more like Princess Daisy, rather than just Peach with brown hair and a yellow dress! Ha!
    I’m really interested to see what other characters will have different costumes like this!

  • Madmagican

    So the male Wii Fit trainer is just a skin like Wario changing outfits in Brawl
    It’ll be interesting to see if they decide to change anything in gameplay with different skins (i.e. Male trainer has a different moveset compared to Female trainer)
    If so, it’d be easy to bring back Dr. Mario as a skin for Mario or they could bring back any of the characters that can switch mid-battle

  • Mario

    It’s like looking at two distinct mirrors!

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Really oké then

      • Mario

        Just like the two Triforces

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          Oh Yeah That’s Right Thanks Mario

  • Miles “Tails” Prower

    I think it’s just a skin because they never claimed the first wii fit trainer female wii fit trainer when she was announced.

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Absolutely Tails

    • Josiah Parsons

      Actually, why aren’t you in yet? You would be perfect for this game!

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        we can only wait for me it’s 60% that Tails coming in SSB4 i say 60% because nintendo doesn’t let every third-party character into super smash bros even from sega but Sonic’s world is the only third-party universe that is most close by nintendo so if Tails is coming into SSB4 its will be possible before sonic was confirm i wish that isn’t sonic but team sonic or sonic heroes then it will be a team and you can swich like pokémon trainer

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          sorry for that reaction Tails i mean it

  • Nicolas Dorion

    why…why would you even

  • Guest

    WTF really thats a waste for a character seriously if captain falcon,ganondorf,zero suit samus or any ones that we like dont make it then their be hell to pay

    • Chronic Gang

      Its a skin not a stand alone character idiot

    • lonewolf88

      its a Alternate skin and its something everyone wants instead of having differen’t colored characters now we will most likely be able to play characters like mario in a alternate doctor mario costume without him taking space and time up.

  • NkoSekirei

    ……..ok well lets hope captain falcon,ganondorf,zero suit samus and few others we like return or their be some pissed off smash fans

    • DragonSilths

      Captain Falcon will be back. The original 12 will ALWAYS BE IN SMASH NO IF ANDS OR BUTS.

  • Guest

    Playing today: Dark Souls, SMT: Strange journey and Mario bros 3’s ghosthouses

    (it’s boo’s 25th birthday, after all)

  • Wiiluigi

    I’m sorry but I think the trainer is a stupid idea. So much more can be done. Dr. Robotnik would be cool. How about the contra bros. I know I’m reaching but a personal trainer….. Uh no.

  • The True Gamer

    My anticipation for smash bros. Lowers everyday thanks to stuff like this

  • Shigeru Miyamoto

    speaking of SKIN ….. Cat Mario or Tanooki Suit Mario in Smash anyone???..

  • ATherohatch

    who in there right mind would be excited to play as a wii fit trainer, they could have added so many other great additions!
