8B1T On December - 19 - 2013

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 16

Uh-oh, someone’s observing from afar. That’s no good. The Yellow Devil will come flying in from the background.

In the train stage, the rear car can change during battle. It’ll detach and move backward, so be careful! This pic features the Linebeck Trading Company, which is being transported for some reason.


Wednesday, December 18

N-now wait a second, let’s talk this through! We don’t wanna miss today’s Nintendo Direct, right?

Rosalina Joins the Battle in Super Smash Bros.

Without further ado, a new fighter from a faraway galaxy joins the battle! The video is also a must-see!


Thursday, December 19

Rosalina and Luma can be right by each other or set farther apart. They’re both controlled by the player, so a smash attack can be done from far off. Remote control all the way!


Friday, December 20

A Luma becomes a star. Lumas are tough, but can also be blown away. Luckily, there’s an infinite number of them.


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 | 27 | 28


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).

    She looks like she could be devastating.

  • anonymous

    i don’t like rosalina. i think she’s overatted (i mean, c’mon, she hardly appeared in smg2! And I don’t think anybody really liked playing as her in Mario Kart 7.

    • Cole Holbrook

      I liked playing as her in MK7. Although since all the characters play very similarly it’s just about which characters you like based on their appearances on other games…

    • Name

      That’s not all she appeared in. Obviously you left out SMG due to her huge involvement, but what about MKW? And MP:IT, she may not have been playable, but her appearance, in a DS game of all things, is very notable. As is her recently confirmed appearances in both Mario kart Arcade GP X (I believe that’s the name) and Mario Kart 8. Along with her playable appearance in SM3DW (a mainstream game, and appearing alongside Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad; all main characters and all making some sort of “playable” appearance in SSB4 (I count Peach’s Toad move as him being somewhat of a playable character, although if you want you can cancel that out)). Rosalina was also planned to appear in Mario Tennis Open, and was only removed due to the time it would take to model her.

      She has moved up in the ranks and is becoming one of the main Mario series characters (along with Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Wario, Waluigi, Yoshi, Birdo, Toad, Bowser, Bowser Jr., and DK).

      Man I typed a lot…well, I like ranting.

      • T0blet

        In addition, and this is a very overlooked fact, she was one of four Nintendo female characters chosen for a 3DS puzzle piece called ‘Heroines’ or ‘Nintendo Starlets’. That is also a very significant achievement. I’d say the only reason Samus wasn’t also there was because Samus was already the sole star of her own Metroid puzzle.

        Anonymous please also note that seeing how often characters are used online is not a good or reliable measurement of popularity. Not many use any of the small characters in Mario Kart Wii like Dry Bones or Toad. Does that automatically mean they’re not popular? Absolutely not. If I randomly decided to use Honey Queen online, does that mean she’s my favourite character? Nope.

    • 8B1T

      (btw this dude is Eric Yann and not our favorite Anon. :p)
      I actually main Rosalina in MK7.:p

      No metter where people’s opinions lie, Rosalina is becoming one of the main faces of modern Mario particularly after all her appearances this year.

    • Aaron Illingworth

      Speak for yourself. She was my main in MK7.

      • Luigiguy567

        Second most used, next to Lakitu.

  • Braystar

    Well controlling 2 people at once is col at least

  • galloots

    well this doesnt yet answer the question if lumas are out after KO’d or if they can be respawned

    • MagiKooper

      Ummmm I’m pretty sure it does…

      • galloots

        well it says infinite number of them, which could mean they spawn again within the same life as rosalina

  • VideoTanooki

    so I’m guessing that when the Lumas are KO’d they come back a different color.

    • Ajl2334

      i think its a different color luma depending on the attack

  • TwoDreamy Luigi

    Luma: “Farewell, Rosalina! You’ll be the center of my heart.”
    Mario: “Ha!!!! I told you I can outsmart your galactic abilities!”
    Rosalina: “I think it is YOU who outsmarted yourself.”
    Mario: “What are you talking about?! I’m the star hero of the Mushroom Kingdom!”
    Rosalina: “What I am saying is that even if you literally defeat my beautiful Lumas, they will die into becoming numerous galaxies, BURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRN!!!!!”
    Mario: “Dang it……………………………….I completely forgot about that terminology. By the way, why would you want to create more galaxies?
    Rosalina: “So I can create more galaxies in Super Smash Bros. 4 for you to battle in.”
    Mario: “There is no way I am going to do new missions in different galaxies, girlfriend!!!!”
    Rosalina: “I’ll grant you a phenomenal version of Gusty Garden Galaxy.”
    Mario: “Give me a Music Mushroom and you got yourself a deal, Rosalina.”
    Luigi: “While you go on doing galactic duties for Rosalina, I am going back to my place and perform Operation L to my patients.”
    Mario: “Well, I wish you luck on your occupation of becoming DR. LUIGI, Luigi.”

  • supamawiol0l

    Rosalina looks really cool and I can’t wait to play as her, but now I really hope they announce more characters like Yoshi, Daisy, Wario, etc. It’d feel weird to have Rosalina in the game and other players out. It’s like having Daisy and no Peach.

    • programninja

      everyone knows yoshi and luigi and some of the main characters are going to be in their, they just wait until the end to announce them

      • MagiKooper

        Um Luigi has already been announced.

    • Cole Holbrook

      Yoshi and Watio are very likely to be back. After that I don’t think anymore Mario characters will join. Peach Rosalina and Daisy is too much. But Daisy could be a new skin for Peach along the lines of Male Wii Fit Trainer.

    • T0blet

      Daisy, I have no idea of her fate, but playable isn’t really an option anymore. However, if Male Fit Trainer is anything to go by, it’s quite possible we could still get Daisy as an alternate costume for Peach (by this I mean Daisy could keep her model and voice, but would have Peach’s exact same move-set). If you don’t like this, then Daisy would probably get an assist trophy at best; Waluigi is likely remain as an assist trophy as-well.

      Yoshi will probably be announced when his two games are nearing release.
      Wario I’m not sure when he’ll be confirmed (which I can confidently say
      he will be), but I think it’s time for Nintendo to focus a lot less on
      Mario characters for the time being. :p I think the only reason Mario
      had all four veterans confirmed so early was to show Rosalina in December. Now Nintendo can finally focus on Zelda or Pokemon etc.

      • Hey-ho

        Probably wario will be shown because of game & wario (sorry for my english)

      • CuriousUser

        As said before, Bowser Jr’s a top wanted newcomer to appear. He’s well needed for a spot now.

        • Unknown Entity

          Too many Mario reps…

          Though, perhaps one more wouldn’t hurt…

          • CuriousUser

            Yeah, 6 (not counting DK, Yoshi and Wario) would be enough. Out of all the Nintendo Franchises, Mario’s has been more special than any other, having new games every year, and had 4 stages in Brawl as opposed to 2 or 1.

      • supamawiol0l

        I honestly don’t care if she’s playable, assist trophy, or even a cameo. As long as Daisy is in the game, I’m really happy.

  • VideoTanooki

    I just realized in the first pic that the yellow devil is actually watching on wily’s castle in the background. Boy do I feel silly for not noticing it sooner.

  • Luigiguy567

    Sorry for the dumb Cash Cash (it’s a band) reference, but Luma’s GONNA REACH FOR THE STARS TONIGHT!

  • Geoman

    Wait is villager and olimar in the 3ds version because i do not have a wii u yet

    • Unknown Entity

      Villager is in 3DS ver.. Come to think of it… Have there been any pics of Olimar in the 3DS one? I was trying to look but couldn’t find any…

      • Unknown Entity

        If this is ghe case… Then… He’s Wii U exclusive? So, Sakurai wasn’t making things up on certain charas in different versions…(i never paid attention to this…)

        • name

          You guys are ignorant. It’s so simple to go look at the 3DS Screenshot gallery on the Mario Wiki’s page for SSB4. They are there. Sakurai also said the characters would be the same in both. :/

          • name

            sorry, it was just one person

  • koopa 27

    I don’t get why people want Crystal from star fox in this game

    • Michael Ingram

      You can ask that about any character. Every character has fans, so those people will obviously want them in Smash Bros.

  • … Broke

    I love looking at these because my family wont have a Wii U untill i pay for it myself. :(

  • Cole Holbrook

    This is how I’m thinking: Rosalina summons a Luma. The color decides it’s type of attack. Every attack with luma is the B button. Rosalina can throw them around or keep them close (maybe call it back). That’s the only way I can think of… Any ideas?

  • hi

    i hope what people say is right and zelda is revealed on thursday is only she that is missing to make the game complete

    • Name

      Uh…Yoshi, Wario, Jigglypuff, Ness, Captain Falcon, Falco, Ganondorf, King Dedede, Meta Knight, at least two more Pokemon characters, Mr. Game and Watch, Ice Climbers (seeing as they got Rosalina to work, they can probably find a way to make these two work, too), another Fire Emblem character, another Earthbound/Mother character, and maybe a representative from another series, like Little Mac or something.

      Roster is still far from complete.

      • Cole Holbrook

        I’m expecting a newcomer from Zelda too. Diddy Kong. Not to mention maybe another DK as it seems the series is being favored right now.

        • Name

          I don’t want Diddy back because right now the overall Mario roster is just as big as it was in Brawl, if you count Yoshi and Wario who will definitely return.

          • Unknown Entity

            If we want to get technical… Charas are represented by their battle icons. Like Mushroom for Mario, Luigi. Sonic head for Sonic.(yeah. you get it) Currently, the “Mario series” has five reps. Two mentioned before plus Peach, Bowser and Rosalina. Diddy wouldn’t be considered a “Mario rep” as he has the DK sign thus representing the DKC series. Like how Yoshi is Yoshi’s Island as Wario is WarioWare. Hopefully that cleared things up.
