Bayonetta's title character will be the final DLC character for Super Smash Bros on the Wii U and 3DS, announced Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai today.

Nintendo says Bayonetta was the "overall number one choice worldwide" in the game's online character ballot.

She will come with two costumes, based on the two different Bayonetta games, will wield four guns, and slow down action with her Witch Time powers.

A game map based on Bayonetta 2's clock tower stage will also be included.

Bayonetta joins a veritable legion of characters, ranging from classic Nintendo stars like Mario, Samus Aran, and Donkey Kong to characters from third party games like Final Fantasy, Street Fighter, and EarthBound.

DLC characters cost $US5.99 per platform or US$6.99 for both platforms.
