During their latest Nintendo Direct broadcast on Tuesday, Nintendo announced Bayonetta would be heading to both versions of Smash Bros. for the Wii U and the 3DS. Targeted for a February 2016 release for the character, Bayonetta will come with the Umbra Clock Tower stage. The character will be available for individually for $5.99 on 3DS or Wii U, or for $6.99 as a bundle for both systems. On Wii U, she’ll also come along with new music tracks.

The character will have her longer-haired look from the first game and the short-haired look from the second game as available costumes. Nintendo added that Bayonetta was the overall number one choice in the Smash Bros. character poll conducted earlier this year.
