Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS recognizes the diversity of Animal Crossing Villagers, which is why you'll get multiple skins to choose from, including female options.

The Animal Crossing Villager is one of many new characters joining the roster for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and 3DS. But anyone that's played Nintendo's friendship simulator knows that there are villagers of all kinds that inhabit the world. Smash Bros is going to reflect this diversity by offering multiple playable Villager skins.

Series director Masahiro Sakurai showed off an image of selectable Villagers on Miiverse (via Joystiq). Sakurai makes sure to point out a pair of female villagers, who will be playable, as well.

The Villager marks the second character with a gender swap option, with Sakurai revealing earlier that the Wii Fit Trainer would feature a playable male counterpart.

Super Smash Bros. will arrive this summer on 3DS and is expected to land on Wii U in time for the holidays.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
