Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed today that players will be able to choose among several playable Animal Crossing villagers in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, including multiple female characters.

Today's roster addition is one of several female character options introduced in the latest Super Smash Bros. series entry. Nintendo previously announced that players will be able to play as both male and female Wii Fit Trainers, and Super Mario Galaxy's Rosalina also made the cut recently.

Super Smash Bros. will launch for the Nintendo 3DS this summer, and a Wii U release will follow in the winter.
