Little Mac joins the Smash Bros. roster...and this time it's not as an Assist Trophy

More On: Super Smash Bros.

Today Nintendo had another Nintendo Direct, during which they announced a new fighter for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS.  Turns out Little Mac has been promoted from an Assist Trophy to a full-fledged fighter, and watching the reveal trailer it's kind of weird when you compare his size to everyone else.  Sure Kirby and Mega Man are smallish characters, but Little Mac is, I believe, considered to be an adult, and I know his name is "Little" Mac, but...dang.  Even Samus is confused by his size.

What I'm curious about is towards the end of the video where we see Little Mac has a power meter above his health and once full he unleashes a powerful uppercut.  I'm wondering if that's just a special feature for Little Mac or if that appears as his Final Smash.
