Mario Party Legacy

Week 23: Super Smash Bros. Official Site Updates

The official website for the two upcoming Super Smash Bros. titles is once again making updates on a regular basis. Similar to the Super Smash Bros. Dojo for Brawl, the official website will post images from both games five times a week. Whether this means we get announcements and characters reveals is still up in the air, but rest assured that new content is always coming your way. Keep checking back to this post as we update everything that is released for this week! A new post will be made for the next week.

Monday, November 11

Here are the familiar capsules–these guys deserve a prize for being in every single game. We gave them a cute redesign by shortening their length a bit.

 

Tuesday, November 12

Marth’s sword has a powerful tip! So we gave his sword slashes a sharp look with an emphasis on its edge.

 

Wednesday, November 13

The Villager’s bug catching net that was shown in the movie is actually a grapple move. It is sort of like Link’s Clawshot and Samus’s Grapple Beam.

 

Thursday, November 14

The characters’ thick outlines are only available in the 3DS version. Only the external outline is thickened and won’t appear in instances like when the hands or feet are overlapping. It’s got a softness to it and is not just black.

 

Friday, November 15

A new stage, Mario Galaxy!! The pull of gravity emanates from the center of the planet, so this will require using brand-new tactics.

 

Here’s what happens when you stand by the edges. Vertical jumps and getting hit upward will shoot you up diagonally.

8B1T

A veteran of the Forum, you'll probably know me as H-J (Kaabii) or 8B1T. My main role on the website is as an assistant editor. My favorite Nintendo franchises are Mario, Kirby and Legend of Zelda, though I do have fleeting moments of entering fandoms beyond the Big N (mainly Japan only stuff).

    This week, let’s-a hope for a newly confirmed stage (even more on that SMG Stage we saw about 2 months ago).

  • lolderpy

    They look cute O_O

  • Blizzardwaltz

    I hope a new charecter appears maybe from the tales series?

  • Luigiguy567

    They look like Animal Capsules from Sonic the Hedgehog.

  • OhMyToad

    I saw a picture of pikachu and toon link for the 3ds today too somewhere on twitter, what about that one?

  • ?

    I WAS RIGHT! They added the link to the Super Mario 3D World site on Peach’s profile! They probably didn’t want to reveal Zelda and Peach on the same / almost same day so they wouldn’t steal the spotlight from each other! Although that means Wario’s chances of being confirmed due to Mario Party Island Tour have dropped significantly…

  • OhMyToad

    Them graphics…..so beautiful..

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    Sword Showdown!!

  • Sup
    • Jimmy Elwell

      Yeah! So excited!

    • supamawiol0l

      yay!

      • Sup

        Micheal needs to see this!

        • supamawiol0l

          mhm

          • Sup

            What’s wrong?

          • supamawiol0l

            i am confused what do you mean

    • CuriousUser

      Hooray. I hope they announce something in mind for the Wii U’s first year, and have seen my videos.

      • 8B1T

        I thought the Direct was 3DS based.
        I have no idea how much viewership this site or your videos get, so I wouldn’t be super hopeful :p

        • CuriousUser

          Nintendo Direct’s can be based around anything. NSLU was still shown in the February and April Direct’s.

    • THANK YOU FOR TELLING US THIS!!!!!! Now I know there’s gonna be a character confirmed tomorrow!

  • happyperson
    • supamawiol0l

      i voted for the top 2 mario and kirby!

  • 8B1T

    So Villager can use his net to grab ledges? O.o (I doubt it, but that wording…)

  • CuriousUser

    Here is what I hope Iwata/Nintendo of America/Europe talk about in the upcoming Nintendo Direct:
    *Mario Golf: World Tour (Iwata may explain something like this “I was unable to (or I forgot to) mention this in previous nintendo direct’s, though I announced in our February and April Nintendo Direct’s that the game would be released in the summer of this year, but around E3, we had decided to take more time in development” (why I’m not sure).)
    *Yoshi’s New Island
    *3DS Kirby game
    *Something bout the 3DS Swapnote/Letterbox
    *Donkey Kong Country 4 (Who the 4th Character will be)
    *Super Mario 3D World (though it’s released shortly)
    *Mario Kart 8 and Bayonetta 2 (maybe)
    *Something in honour it being a year since launch of the Wii U.
    *A Game announced for the first time.
    Anything else that may be likely?

  • CuriousUser

    When I return from School tomorrow, I’ll check out the Nintendo Direct, and see if what I hoped what Iwata/Nintendo of America/Shibata talks about is true. Don’t tell me directly if or if not, I’ll see for myself (though I’ll only take hints).

  • VideoTanooki

    This is cool, but I think the villagers fishing rod would have been a better grapple move. Since it is the net I wonder if occasionally the net will come out as a gold net.

  • CuriousUser

    Something I have to say bout the Nintendo Direct: They’re meant to be run by Iwata (with occasional Nintendo of America or Europe appearances), and will we ever see any new news bout Mario Golf: World Tour, Yoshi’s New Island, Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong Country 4’s 4th Character? Surely there’ll be something in tribute to the Wii U’s First year completed, and some new way to message 3DS Friends.

    Next Nintendo Direct in December I reckon will likely be a Mini like it was in July, explaining news for 2014.

    • 8B1T

      Miiverse 3DS in December.
      There’s no point having all the info now anyway, I’d rather let the teaser info come later than earlier. :p

      • CuriousUser

        There’s an online Petition of bring it back, and Nikki didn’t even have anything to say bout the loss of the application. Miiverse coming to 3DS, 2.5 years and 1/4 of a year after launch, amazing, though no news of N64 and GCN games for Wii U VC at this point, maybe next year.

    • Cole Holbrook

      Well it was supposed to me mainly 3DS games. Other things were sprinkled in though. And I wouldn’t mind if they kept Donkey Kongs 4th a secret so that it will be a huge surprise when I first play it.

      • CuriousUser

        Before the end of the year, it would be best to see the 4th Character, and have him added to the Final Boxart (since the Delay, the Boxart may be different to what we saw of the forgetting that Mainstream game boxart’s have every playable character on them).

        Yet will new info on games I predicted that would be talked about that weren’t talked about ever be talked about?

        • Cole Holbrook

          No. No information will ever be released about those two games forever. Eventually they will just release without any previous knowledge.

          • CuriousUser

            Well, release date’s. We’ll need to know that.

  • 8B1T

    As for today’s image, that angle really doesn’t do justice to Pika’s arms.

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    Pikachu is the only pokémon annouced to now, I want:
    Mewtwo
    Jigglypuff
    Lucario
    Oshawott
    In the Battle!!

    • Geoman

      Lucario all the way

  • T0blet

    I’m looking forward to the screenshot on November the 22nd. With three games released on the same day (and it’s Friday!), it’s feels like it’s a guarantee that we’ll at least see some newly announced character, playable or not.

    It’s most likely Zelda, but it would still be interesting to see what kind of design she’ll have.

    • Cole Holbrook

      Could be Yoshi, Zelda, or Wario. Doesn’t seem like a newcomer type of day but who knows. Could be a new stage as well sense we haven’t seen one in a while

      • T0blet

        I have a hypothesis that 2014 will be the year of Yoshi (he’s the only character other than Mario to have 2 confirmed games in production) so I don’t think he will be revealed until then.

        But yes, it could be anything.

  • GameGuy5

    Gotta love that Pikachu. 😛

    And what 8B1T said kinda looks true to me… Pikachu’s arms do look a little out there. But overall, the 3DS version still looks stunning. And I will be just dorky enough to buy both the WiiU and 3DS versions of the game. 😛

    Sadly, it’s confirmed both versions will not be released at the same time…

    • VideoTanooki

      Where did you here that. that is sad 🙁 .

  • BlazinJ

    I can’t wait to see a pic regarding Star/Screen KO’s

  • 8B1T

    Oh hello, looks like this stage eventuated. :p

    I guess greater emphasis will be on side launchers since high launching might just lead to gravitational return… DI still gonna be important.

  • E.Gadd

    Awesome! Lots of Mario Galaxy love this week from Nintendo. ;D

    • 8B1T

      Second pic is Miiverse exclusive, SZ got it up.

      • E.Gadd

        Nice

  • CuriousUser

    Took 2 months and 5 days for Sakurai to get the message and show us more to the stage. Our Observation’s were right, and to those who doubted us and said it being Battlefield at Night or even Final Destination.

    • E.Gadd

      Seems like he waited until close to 3D World’s release to maximize hype from the Mario fan base. Worked on me, I’m super excited!

    • Froggy

      What do you mean “for Sakurai to get the message” sorry, but that makes you seem like a brat. I understand you were excited and all, but you should be more thankful because making a stage no less a game is very difficult, especially when it comes to using new HD technology.

      • CuriousUser

        Other fans have also wanted to see more of the SMG Stage, not only me. I am indeed thankful for what Sakurai has to offer.

  • XelaFury

    The Mario Galaxy stage looks really gorgeous! Can’t wait to see how this stage is played!

  • VideoTanooki

    This stage is awesome! with all these great stages I don’t know which one I’ll use first.

  • VideoTanooki

    They even put Lubba on Starship Mario.

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    I’ve got titles for these 6 screenshots:
    1. Capsule Time!
    2. Sword Showdown!
    3. A Bug or a Link?
    4. The Yellow Mouse Pokémon
    5. The Fantastic Super Mario Galaxy Stage
    6. A Wonderful Galactic Screenshot

  • Braystar

    WOO HOO SMG STAGE!
