Have you ever dared to dream?

Posted on

Nintendo validated your entire childhood Thursday by announcing Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII will be a downloadable character in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.

The trailer came at the end of a 45-minute Nintendo Direct which announced other content, like new Fire Emblem and Pokèmon puzzle games. Nintendo has not announced a price or release date for Cloud.

The trailer came at the end of a 45-minute Nintendo Direct which announced other content, like new Fire Emblem and Pokèmon puzzle games. Nintendo has not announced a price or release date for Cloud.

It might seem like a feverish fanfiction dream, but it's true: Cloud, Ryu, Mega Man, Sonic, and Mario are all in ONE game.

The trailer is chock full of details and love - the Buster Sword and Cloud's spiky hair are just like you remember them.

Midgar looks accurately dark and dreary even in the bright world of Smash Bros.

Nintendo

There was even an Aeris reference - the flower girl in the church! AHHHHH!

Nintendo

OF COURSE, Cloud has a Limit Meter, because Nintendo thinks of everything.

And when he uses Omnislash, the classic Final Fantasy VII battle text pops up!

All the classic summons are here too: we got old man Odin...

Nintendo

...big daddy Bahamut...

Nintendo

...and a mad-as-hell Ifrit.

Nintendo

They also showed off these ADORABLE Chocobo costumes.

Somewhere, sometime, your 10-year old self is crying a single tear at the idea of Cloud Strife beating up Charizard.

Nintendo

This basically sums it up.

Skip to 42m and 8s in the Direct to watch the trailer!
