Mario Party Legacy

Week 26: 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, December 2

Turnips are used in the Villager’s up-air and down-air attacks. Perhaps because the turnip prices fluctuate depending on the day’s market, the number of turnips that appear changes every time. How cute.

 

Tuesday, December 3

Pop quiz! Who is this monster, and where is it from? The cage may serve as a hint.

 

Wednesday, December 4

Excuse me, sir–a little help with the ball? There was once a game called Mega Man Soccer, by the way.

 

Thursday, December 5

The Villager’s special attack, the Lloid Rocket, is a projectile weapon like no other–you can either launch it or ride on it. When you fire it off, keep pressing the button to hop aboard–you can even control its speed. It’s more powerful when you’re riding it.

 

Friday, December 6

Here’s a new Assist Trophy–the Skull Kid! I repeat, it’s an Assist Trophy, not a new fighter. The characters announced on the website are the fighters!

Week 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26

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).

    Wow, the moves this time around seem much more in-depth. Maybe we’ll see some new ones for the vets

    • VideoTanooki

      I’m hoping Sonic will get some new moves, like maybe chaos control to stun opponents or sonic wind to be a projectile.

  • supamawiol0l

    LOL LLOID!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • 8B1T

      …and how is something called a Lloid Rocket even remotely funny?

      (Surprised no-one has done a Lloid Rocket – Lloyd Irving confirmed, honestly…)

      • supamawiol0l

        He looks like a little fire hydrant but then he’s a rocket?!

        • 8B1T

          He’s a particular Gyroid from the AC series. Odd as it may seem, Gyroids (in Japan anyway) are ‘terracotta clay figures that were buried with the dead in Japan between the 3rd and 6th centuries’. I don’t get the rocket bit since, well, I’ve never played an AC game.

          • supamawiol0l

            I’ve played them and I still don’t get the rocket

          • The Rye Guy

            Terracotta clay figures that were buried with the dead in Japan… If that is the case, then I must have been running around digging up graves when searching for Gyroids.

  • CuriousUser

    What I hope is talked about in the next Nintendo Direct this month:
    *Gameplay with Cranky in DKC4
    *Trailer for a SSB4 Newcomer (preferably Little Mac)
    *Announce the Year of Luigi Coming to an End
    *Confirm Release Dates of games due for an Early 2014 release
    *Maybe a Game announced for the First Time
    *Maybe a Trailer for a Game having arrived for VC

  • Eric Yann

    hmmmm
    villager and mega man both have extremely cheap and poweful moves. i wonder who will win…

    • VideoTanooki

      Villager Man Trainer would easily dominate them both.

      • Eric Yann

        toon pincess village man trainer kong

  • who cares?

    the 2nd picture is the dark lord.

    • koopa 27

      Wrong he is dark empire from find Mii 2 secret quest and dark lord is yellow

  • CuriousUser

    A Guy in a mask. Majora’s Mask to be precise, like it were a new item.

    • discoromance

      Um, why would Wreck-It Ralph be in Smash?

      • Michael Ingram

        Yeah, plus why would a Pokemon be an AT?

        • CuriousUser

          What would you say if a Pokemon not like any other were an Assist Trophy as opposed to a Pokeball, that can be unlocked for covering all pokemon from their pokeballs.

          • VideoTanooki

            I would say that would be pretty silly, an unlockable pokeball pokemon doesn’t sound to far fetched.

          • CuriousUser

            Don’t think you understand me there Mr. T. Assist Trophy Pokemon unlocked by covering every pokeball pokemon.

          • VideoTanooki

            I understand alright, and what I’m saying is that a unlockable assist trophy pokemon= unlikely, but unlockable pokeball pokemon= possible.

          • 8B1T

            I thought an Assist Trophy was the non-Pokemon equivalent of Pokeballs anyway. So, uh, why put a Pokemon into the AT category when they already have their home category of Pokeball? -expects some Genesect or Mewtwo counter-

            “be surprised if there’s a Pokemon not like any other that does not have the same purpose”
            Jirachi, Mew, Celebi all fit that. And Goldeen if you insist. :p

          • VideoTanooki

            lol that second part seems like the typical smash fan response to a situation like this.

          • Sea Slug and Wagashi

            Definitely Goldeen.

          • Cole Holbrook

            Why wouldn’t it come out of a Pokeball… Maybe once you use all of the normal ones it unlocks a superior Pokeball Pokemon

          • CuriousUser

            Be surprised if there’s a Pokemon not like any other that does not have the same purpose. And for my other statement above.

      • CuriousUser

        The Character from a movie about Video Games was in Sega All Stars Racing Transformed, and if told otherwise to a Namco TPC, Ralph should be it. Besides, a human TPC. Either he be a Playable Character or an Assist Trophy, he would not have been in SASRT for nothing.

        • VideoTanooki

          Only characters who originated in video games can appear in smash bros.

          • CuriousUser

            Fix-it Felix Jr. was the video game. Again, he was in Sega All Stars Racing Transformed, which couldn’t be the only actual video game we play as him in. Since Mario was cut from the film, it would be great to actually see the two together.

          • VideoTanooki

            Fix-it- Felix Jr. was an arcade cabinet made to promote the movie, so Wreck-it Ralph is a movie character, but I’m not gonna try to change your opinion to match my own.

    • supamawiol0l

      Blooper? Seriously?

      • CuriousUser

        Cover’s the Screen with Ink for a limited time.

        • supamawiol0l

          Nevermind then

        • Sea Slug and Wagashi

          It’s smart, although it should make the screen translucent, or you can only see faint white outlines of everything – something of the sort. Otherwise, Nintendog would be gone! And it was always way too fun to see my friends have an outrage about a Labrador puppy. 🙂

  • MagiKooper

    I’m starting to hate Nintendo and their teasing,(Part Zelda Fan) Just announce Majora Mask 3D or HD or whatever system your gonna remake it on and stop teasing……….I can’t take it much longer……..#Majora3D

  • Now i’m sad now….. I really wanted Skull Kid playable….. He is probably a really cool assist trophy late…. But I really hope there teasing us and say that he IS playable

  • VideoTanooki

    Skull Kid looks great in HD, and is it me or did Nintendo just troll all Majora’s Mask fans.

  • CuriousUser

    Spoilers: Tomorrow at VGX 2013, Reggie unveil’s a new Nintendo game for the first time. What could it be?

    • GameGuy5

      It’s not about a ‘new’ title. GameInformer has clarified that Reggie will be showcasing a previously announced WiiU title. Most people are placing their bets that it will be about Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

      • Cole Holbrook

        I’m betting Mario Kart for the sake of argument

      • MagiKooper

        What about Yoshi U? We haven’t seen anything about that game since January….but if I were to guess either…..Zelda U ( not sure if it was previously announced or not but eh ) or….ugh I don’t know, Only 10-12 hours until we know..

      • hi

        or mario kart 8

  • Cole Holbrook

    It’s weird that this is the first assists trophy! But I’m really glad he made it as an assist and not playable. I would personally rather have Ghirahim or Yuga but I’m glad Skull Kid is there. I think it is less of a troll and more throwing MM fans a bone

    • MagiKooper

      Forget the bone, I WANT THE TURKEY IT CAME FROM! I want Majora Mask 3D…..Nintendo has been teasing for to long now, and showing this just makes me people more hype and more curious, and also makes fans go crazy and argue weither it will be on the 3DS or WiiU.

      #Majora3D

      • CuriousUser

        Skull Kid is not a Turkey it’s pretty much a tribal person, I think.

        • Froggy

          No DUH it isn’t a turkey. He was just referring to a metaphorical bone and turkey.

      • Cole Holbrook

        I would love that but I’m seriously doubtful. Especially after he just talked about how operation moon fall has no effect on them. And if they put it on Wii I they would be wasting a game. I mean it would be awesome of course but it would not be a system seller. I think they need to make something that would attract a lot vs a few

  • Cole Holbrook

    I wonder if on SS stage the evil cats will attack people? If not it needs to be assist trophy for sure!

  • Boo3DarkBoo

    I wonder Skull Kid appears in the game. I know it’s an Assist Trophy, but he looks great!

  • Geoman

    I have a question if Namco bandi games is deloving the game would Pac man or at least 1 of the ghost be playable assist trophy or boss in the game

    • Michael Ingram

      It’s possible, but only if Nintendo/Sakurai want to include them.

      • CuriousUser

        More likely Lloyd Irving in Namco. Sorry for saying this over.

        • Unknown Entity

          I’m “curious”… Have you played any Tales of games? I assume you only know Lloyd because people say he has a good chance of being in Smash 4. But if you have… Color me surprised.

        • Cole Holbrook

          There may be multiple 3rd party assist trophies. But I thought you wanted Lloyd as playable? I don’t but I thought you did…

  • Braystar

    NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! NOT SKULL KID….. I’M WORRIED ABOUT MAJORA’S MASK (SPOILERS) I THOUGHT IT LOST IT’S POWER!

  • GameGuy5

    And good news, Reggie has also confirmed that the Year of Luigi celebrations will continue into 2014. Sadly, he didn’t give any hints of what to expect. But, the Year of Luigi lives on!

    • CuriousUser

      Impossible. Iwata said 2013. Beside’s, a year is 12 months, 52 weeks and 365(or 366) days, no longer.

      • GameGuy5

        Yes, a year is 365/366 days. But, the CELEBRATIONS will continue into 2014.

        • Boo3DarkBoo

          This are really good news!!

          • MagiKooper

            Sooo does this mean there will be one or two more Luigi games, or is this just for products?

          • GameGuy5

            It has been confirmed that some, ‘Luigi products’ will be in line for next year. New games, is currently unknown.

        • Unknown Entity

          It’s already been a disappointing “Year of Luigi”. Nintendo still bathed Mario in his usual glamor. They didn’t try enough with Luigi and that is what made me sorely disappointed. The products, I could care less for. It’s games starring Luigi is what SHOULD’VE happened more of. We did get LD:DM and NSLU,,, But c’mon. If you really wanted to aim for a “dedicated” achievement… MORE GAMES, PLEASE. I’m surprised at how frustrated I’m getting with their sloppy work. Here’s to a hopefully better continuation…

          • Unknown Entity

            Oh errors. *LM:DM, *…

          • Luigiguy567

            I agree with you. Mario just shoved his way in at the last second in Dark Moon, NSLU was pretty much a slightly harder NSMBU, and Luigi was still made fun of and was a sidekick to his bro in Dream Team. I’m still waiting for that perfect Luigi game with:
            1. NO MARIO! Not an appearance, not a cameo, not even mentioned! Luigi needs a game without Mr. I-appear-in-everything hogging the limelight. Mario has gone through countless adventures where people in the game act like Luigi doesn’t exist, Luigi needs to turn the tables on Mario for once.
            2. Not a mindless copy of a game already released. NSUL was a carbon clone to NSMBU. I don’t want it to happen again.
            3. Can we have a single game where everyone doesn’t treat Luigi like dirt? Dark Moon was a good attempt, but some Toads and even E. Gadd acted like he was inferior to his bro. He’s Mario’s BROTHER not some random cousin! Not even some people at Nintendo respect him. Just look at the Paper Mario series and Super Princess Peach if you need an example.

          • MagiKooper

            Ok I agree with you, 3. In almost every game I know Luigi has been treated like dirt, the one game that didn’t do that was Dream Team, and the only character that actually dissed Luigi was Starlow…..stupid annoying yellow NAVI!!

            2. Enough Said….

            1. I agree with you a little bit there, in Luigi Mansion Dark Moon, at first it felt completely Mario free, but then you saw the pictures and saw the hat hint, and then its a quest to save Mario and i feel Mario kinda stole the ending from Luigi a bit, but the game makes up for that when Mario actually THANKS his brother, and Luigi goes home and well rested with his new Polterpup…..best ending a Mario…..or um Luigi Title can have.

            I’m not sure Nintendo could do that, most kids or teenages now days who are CoD and Mircosoft fanboys and a bit of Sony and know just Mario, and that’s it. If you ask them about Luigi they’ll say either 3 things. 1: Who? 2: Oh yeah, he’s that green dude who helps out Mario from time to time. and 3 is actually when you ask who is better Mario or Luigi, they will say, “Oh Mario’s better because he the hero, Luigi doesn’t do s***, he’s cowardly, he’s boring.

            Luigi has more emotion than Mario more feeling then him, Mario just a hero, Luigi on the other hand, he’s loving, he’s loyal, he’s just all around funny even when he’s not trying to be, he’s cowardly as a mouse, but as brave as a lion. he’s just Luigi.
            If Nintendo could make a Luigi based game without Mario i’m sure they would, but Mario’s a big icon, if they base a game off of anyone in the Mario series and take he’s not in it, some people are gonna complain.

          • Luigiguy567

            Yeah, Starlow you killjoy. And I WAS kinda glad Mario thanked his bro at the end of Dark Moon, I mean after he said absolutely nothing to Luigi at the end of Mario is Missing and the original Luigi’s Mansion. Also, Luigi has WAY more personality than Mario. His whole life he has looked up to Mario as a role model and wants to be just like him. Mario kinda ruins his chances by not taking him on adventures occasionally and how he and Peach just completely ditch him at the end of New Super Mario Bros. Wii. (Until those two friendly Toads came to offer Luigi a ride.) Peach treats him unfairly too. In World 7 of Super Princess Peach, she completely forgets his name, and in World 8, she literally shoves him down to the floor to greet Mario (Who doesn’t care to check on his bro afterward). Also Octagon from Metal Gear Solid calls him “King of Second Bananas” and mocks him until Snake defends him. (lol Snake is a Luigi fan) Anyways, thanks for responding.

          • MagiKooper

            Super Princess Peach was just messed up. I’m not talking about how they dissed Luigi, which was just mean. But the ending was weird, about how they were talking about the Vibe Specter being in your house, your dad being upset, your mom being more happy. Nintendo, this is an E rated game……that mainly girls of a young age play…..why would you put something like that at the end.

            Not many people got it, when they look it up and see the theories on it, they wished they never did….

          • Luigiguy567

            What. The. Heck.
            I just watched the ending on youtube, I was suprised that even made it into the game.

          • GameGuy5

            “Somewhere, someone might be using it right now…”

            “…What? Your dad got mad at you the other day, you say?”

            “Your mom’s been laughing happily a lot?”

            “Maybe… Just maybe… The Vibe Sceptor is hidden away in your house somewhere…”

            ohlol That’s gold. Hahahahaha.

          • GameGuy5

            Super Princess Peach – Giving the bipolar, emotional princess the lead this time, and encouraging children to find their parents’ sex toys. (Thumbs up, Nintendo).

            If you want to find out more issues with the princess (and/or just need a laugh), you must watch this:

          • Luigiguy567

            I knew Peach was insane! But I guess she would after getting captured literally about 25 times.

          • MagiKooper

            Ah Game Theory, this guy is awesome and really does do his research when he does something like this..By the way this has always made me wonder, at 08:00 in the video when BJunes and the Koopalings throw a cake on to Peach to capture her, why does it just missed Yellow and Blue Toad, there like standing 2 inches from her.

      • Cole Holbrook

        If I remember correctly Year of Luigi didn’t start January… It started like February or whatever. Eh maybe not. But they want to sell the Luigi stuff longer (like the remote)

    • Luigiguy567

      The Year of Luigi continues! I’m so happy it’s not ending now.

    • Lumastar

      Well, that’s good news. There hasn’t been THAT much spectacular this year for Luigi. He definitely needs a little more time in the spotlight! 😛

  • Luigiguy567

    Skull kid an assist trophy? That was a troll move for the fans. Glad I’m not a Majora fan.

    • Lumastar

      Haha, seems like it. And I’m not a Majora’s Mask fan, either. I never owned an N64, or any nintendo console before that (NES, SNES)

  • CuriousUser

    @SuperZambezi Aren’t you going to make a page about the newly confirmed 3DS Stage?

    • Sea Slug and Wagashi

      There is ambiguity concerning the stage itself. The background could easily be some kind of animation or anything else of the sort. In other words, some sources are simply more skeptical than others.
