Nintendo of America just announced that the Earthbound character Lucas, who is also playable in the Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii, will be available as paid DLC on Sunday June 14th. The DLC is set to go live at 8am PST.
There is no word yet on how much it will cost to purchase Lucas but assumptions should be made for the $5 range. Nintendo might also bundle Lucas for both the Wii U and 3DS versions. No word yet on the Lucas amiibo but one is expected to be available at some point.
