By all accounts, WarioWare's Ashley is pretty strange. She chooses to live in a haunted mansion and she chooses to never comb her hair. Who never combs their hair? Bald people, sure, but folks with hair have no excuse.
Still, we're pretty excited about the idea of her bringing that bad girl attitude of her's to Super Smash Bros. as an assist trophy. Assist trophies are special items that, when possessed, summon a character into the fight. That character performs a specialized attack then departs the battlefield.
Sakurai announced Ashley's inclusion on Miiverse recently, though unfortunately he failed to offer anything else about her inclusion. The image posted to Miiverse is from the Wii U version, but presumably Ashley's in the 3DS game too.
The Super Smash Bros. roster has steadily grown since the game was announced at E3 last year. So far, the Wii Fit Trainer, Mega Man, The Villager from Animal Crossing, Mario, Kirby, Donkey Kong, Samus, Bowser, Sonic, Link, Pikachu, Captain Olimar and his Pikmin pals, Luigi, Tune Link, Marth, Rosalina and Luma, Princess Zelda and, revealed just last week, King Dedede have all been confirmed for the latest Super Smash Bros. game.
