In a new TV ad for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for both the 3DS and the Wii, the fighters from the game like Mario, Pikachu, Luigi, and others take on a very unexpected opponent – the idols of AKB48.

AKB48 is joining the Super Smash Bros. fight… well, sort of. The video features the Mii version of AKB48 idol Mayu Watanabe taking on Mario in what seems to be one of the cutest and most unexpected ways to promote the fighting game.

Mii versions of the other AKB48 idols are also present and they are sure to give the Super Smash Bros. fighters a run for their money. Also in the video are Bowser, Link, Pikachu, Charizard, Kirby, and many many more.
