It turns out that Nintendo kept a little something back during its Super Smash Bros. Direct broadcast. Director Masahiro Sakurai has announced that Dillon, protagonist in Dillon’s Rolling Western, will be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros. as an Assist Trophy.
“We didn’t introduce ALL of the Assist Trophies in the Smash Bros. Direct,” Sakurai wrote in a Miiverse post. “Here’s Dillon from Dillon’s Rolling Western!! He may rival Sonic in the art of rolling.
“He may be an animal, and his buckles are definitely on the adorable side, but there’s no denying he looks cool,” he later added. “His Assist Trophy can even do things like a quick charge.”
Dillon’s Rolling Western was released in 2012 for Nintendo 3DS.
