Week 48: 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.

Here’s wire frame Little Mac–re-envisioned from the original Punch-Out!! game. The man that actually drew the pixel art wire frame in the original was none other than Shigeru Miyamoto. He said he drew the pixels for the wire frame on graph paper.

Here’s Charizard’s new special attack, Flare Blitz. It’s a very powerful attack–however, you’ll take recoil damage if you make contact. Pretty true to the original game, huh? Flare Blitz is Charizard’s side special move, and Rock Smash is the down special move.

And here’s Mega Charizard X. This will appear as Charizard’s Final Smash.

Here’s one of my personal favorites, the trophy of Brittany from Pikmin 3. She won’t be joining the battle, but her model and expression is well-designed.

The unexpected Assist Trophy, the TV-Game 15! Color TV-Game 15 is a home entertainment system that was released in 1977 in Japan before the release of Space Invaders. This is the oldest game to join the Smash Bros. series.

Normally, controllers for these types of games had knobs with variable resistors–these allowed the players to control in-game movement by how far they twisted the knobs. The TV-Game 15 used microswitches instead. We’ve worked a little too hard to reenact the behavior of the original, so the paddles always move in linear paths with the same, consistent speed. We pay attention to such peculiar details!

You can choose to play as the girl villager too!! How lovely.

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).

    The Yellow Villager outfit looks different from VideoTanooki’s Avatar. The Appearance of the Villager is quite different through each Palette Swap is what’s worth noting.

    • 8B1T

      I swear I must be the only person who thinks Yellow Villager has Little Mac eyes. 😛

      • Braystar

        yes, yes U r

      • Peach and mario <3<3

        actually,no. i sorta saw his face too.

    • VideoTanooki

      I like that yellow villager more because it is more unique lol.

  • SmashBrosChamp

    Guys this is the closest thing were getting with a new character for now 😉 and palate swap

  • galloots

    I wonder if they are gonna release a gold character next…

    • WaluigiStarman32

      Nope.Just Nope…I’m tired of gold 😛

    • Person McPerson

      I REALLY REALLY REALLY HOPE R.O.B. JOINS.

  • Nintendo Guy

    Maybe we could see Dr. Mario again?

  • Boo3DGoldBoo

    Here’s what you guys want: female villager

  • Peach and mario <3<3

    yayayayayay!!!!!!!!

  • Peach and mario <3<3

    remember?on monday i mentioned female villager,and now they gave me female villager!nintendo,you rock!female villager,you’re so cute and beautiful!you’re right nintendo,it’s lovely

  • programninja

    well I was hoping you could use your villager from a animal crossing game you have saved on that system, but this works too. Also anybody think that the new figurines could give access to new costumes or characters?

  • T0blet

    This is great news, though I hope the female villager comes with another hairstyle because personally that’s my least favourite of the bunch. But no worries, I’ll probably be using the yellow villager anyway, cause that’s the same hairstyle as my own villager. 🙂

    I also think this pretty much confirms that every character will have at least one alternate costume. I also believe that Daisy, instead of simply being a Peach recolour, will this time will have her own unique model with her own voice, but will still have Peach’s move-set.

    • Peach and mario <3<3

      i loved her hairstyle,but we all have opinions,so i respect yours. and the daisy idea is nice! but changing the voice is a little too much. nintendo wouldn’t do that,but they can make her daisy costume closer to daisy,like they did in melee.

      • T0blet

        At first I thought they maybe wouldn’t change the voices, but then I thought of male Wii Fit Trainer. :p

        • Peach and mario <3<3

          ??

          • T0blet

            What I mean is Nintendo will have to give Male Wii Fit Trainer his own voice because it would sound incredibly odd to have him sounding like the female. And if altering voices for that ‘costume’ is possible, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to give Daisy her own voice too.

          • Peach and mario <3<3

            i don’t think the wii fit trainers will have voice. on the trailers and gameplay they had,they only do whistling sounds.

          • Peach and mario <3<3

            but it isn’t daisy. it’s peach dressed like daisy. (but i like daisy)

    • VideoTanooki

      The thing with the Peach-Daisy thing is that Daisy isn’t peach. Villager and Wii Fit Trainer are both vague names so you can’t tell if its a boy or a girl which makes this model swap possible, but when the announcer calls peach and you’re looking at Daisy it gets weird. I can understand Dr.Mario, Dr.Luigi, Outset ToonLink, Fusion Suit Samus etc. as costumes because they aren’t completely different characters. I honestly think that not a lot of characters are getting alts.

      • T0blet

        I understand that, but can you explain to me why Peach has had a colour swap for Daisy in the latest two installments for Smash Bros because, like you say, they’re completely different characters.

        My argument is that Nintendo should make that extra push to make Daisy (sort of) playable, cause there ain’t any other way she’ll be playable otherwise. In my opinion, they should either make Daisy her own model, or get rid of the colour swap altogether, as the colour swap annoys me greatly.

        • VideoTanooki

          The palette swap is a reference not a different character model, Daisy’s colors

          • T0blet

            I’m not buying that. In Melee, they actually modified part of her costume to look more like Daisy and distinguish the two characters. But they just didn’t put in the effort to make her model entirely unique.

  • Nookling

    HOLLY MOLLY THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED! XD

    • Gold Sushi

      Who’s Holly and Molly?

      • T0blet

        I’m not sure if you already know, but anyway he means holy moly. It’s a saying. 😛

        • Nookling

          Nope.

        • Gold Sushi

          It was a joke :/

          • T0blet

            Not a very good one it seems. : Never heard of the company and it’s off-topic anyway.

  • Nookling

    Guys there aren’t only three alts maybe the other defaults will show up?

  • WaluigiStarman32

    I knew it 🙂

  • GoldSonicRubyShadow

    Sweeeet!

  • Sea Slug and Wagashi

    YAAAAAY!

  • Nookling

    I feel like Dr. Mario and Dr. Luigi are musts but don’t think every character will have an alt. it would be amazing if they did but I seriously doubt it. The fact that Dark Samus is an assist trophy really tells me it will only be a few with alternates

    Yay! This should be fun!

      • SmashBrosChamp

        Hey please give a notice when your gonna change your profile it’s really getting hard to keep track of who you are , just saying

        • Peach and mario <3<3

          why?

          • SmashBrosChamp

            I was just asking because I keep forgetting who you were , you don’t have to though

          • 8B1T

            Or you could just not bother with trying to find out, and get back on topic???

          • SmashBrosChamp

            You know you can be kinda mean , I was just asking Dang :/

          • GoldSonicRubyShadow

            Ikr.

          • DaisyYoshi4LIFE!

            that was kinda on the more mean side the way you said that. No offense to all the of the admin/moderators but as much as i like these rules, do you really have to call out on people every time they get a little off topic? Once again i really don’t mean to offend anybody, just stating my opinion

  • Hmmmmm

    Just wanted to tell all yall that the blue shell is an item. It was in the the Super Smash Bros Direct when they showed Halberd in returning stages. It was attacking mario by falling on him with its spiked end. Just thought you should know.

  • Guest

    Final Smashes in the 3DS version!

    • Peach and mario <3<3

      do you really think they would not put final smashes in the 3ds version?

      • BlooperLover

        Ok Guest, I think the other Guest posted it to show how they would look in the 3DS Version.

  • Peach and mario <3<3

    look closely at the ground in thursday’s picture. yup,that’s ridley’s shadow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nookling

    • Person McPerson

        Thanks

  • CuriousUser

    News on Super Smash Bros. 4: They’re holding a Q&A at E3 this year. My Body is Ready for it.

    • SmashBrosChamp

      So does that mean we can ask them the character roster and how many stages there are in each version I hope so

      • Peach and mario <3<3

        me too

      • Nookling

        You can ask whatever you want if you’re there. Doesn’t mean they have to answer

        • SmashBrosChamp

          That sucks I can’t go to E3 but can somebody else ask this question if y’all go there

          • Nookling

            They won’t answer those questions most likely. Maybe the stage one, but usually they leave a few fighter secret. If they don’t they will be revealed on the website, in a video, or at the event. I don’t think they will just say who else is in. But somebody is bound to ask anyways so you could just watch it online

          • SmashBrosChamp

            Ok

  • Luigiguy567

    Anyone else want the Computer Virus from Kirby Super Star as an assist trophy? Or how about Dr. Eggman as an assist trophy?

    Dr. Eggman in Smash = Large amounts of Pingas.

    • Peach and mario <3<3

      i want dixie and daisy to be in the game.
      dixie:trophy and/or playable (i really can’t see what will she do if she becomes an assist trophy.probably like barbara in brawl,she will play her guitar and shock waves will damage the characters.)(and i really don’t think she will be a diddy clone.like video tanooki said,just because 2 characters are similar,doesn’t mean they are the same).
      daisy:since waluigi isn’t playable,i doubt she will. and we already have 5 mario characters
      so i think daisy will be a peach pallete swap and a trophy like in brawl.(like dixie,i don’t know what will she do as an assist trophy,but she can put flowers on the head of the assist trophy sumonner’s opponents.)

      • Luigiguy567

        1. Dixie has a pretty high chance of appearing.
        2. I like Daisy, too, but I feel if we’re getting one more Mario rep, it’s going to be Bowser Jr.

        • Peach and mario <3<3

          you mean appearing playable,or just appearing in the game?

          • Luigiguy567

            Most likely playable, due to her giant amounts of requests in smash.

          • Peach and mario <3

            i think it’s more due to her being planned for brawl and all the characters that are planned for the previous smash,are playable in the next one.

          • Peach and mario <3

            i want her,since she wasn’t in mk8,i think she deserves to be in smash. much like toadette returned this year with 2 games,dixie deserves too.

      • WaluigiStarman32

        5 isn’t enough 😉

    • WaluigiStarman32

      what?lol i want a Dr.Mario or a Waluigi virus on my pc but if it is Pink Gold Peach it’s rage time and you’re going to the Youtube Poop language mah boi lol

      • Luigiguy567

        Oh boy! I’m so hungry, I could eat an Octorock!

        • WaluigiStarman32

          MOAR! Octorock and SPAGHETTI gay luigi and also bagels are illegal you know

    • Braystar

      Y the pingas? ‘Cause I’ve seen SMG4 (Youtuber) and he uses PINGAS alot. Y is Eggman acociated with PINGAS?

      • Luigiguy567

        Pingas is a semi-outdated internet meme. And I thought I was the only one who watches smg4.

        • Braystar

          BUT WHAT DOES PINGAS COME FROM?!

          • Luigiguy567

            A TV show called “Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog”. There is an episode entitled “Boogie Mania” where Eggman says to his minions, “SnooPING AS usual, I see”.

          • Braystar

            So they made PINGAS ut of THAT?! REALLY?!

          • Luigiguy567

            I can’t believe you’re surprised. This is the internet we’re talking about here.

          • Braystar

            True, people make really retarded stuff out from releatively sane things. TRIVIA: When I first heardb PINGAS in a SMG4 vid, I thought he was saying, U know, the privates… Actually I bet THAT’S Y they made PINGAS! PING-PING-PING-PING-AS, PING,PING,PING,PINGPINGPINGPINGPINGPINGAS

  • VideoTanooki

    I hope lazy eyes villager is a costume.

  • Peach and mario <3

    i think it’ll be fair if this week,they put the female villagers in most,half or all the pictures,since all the characters when they are recently revealed,get a spotlight for at least one week and wire frame mac and male wii fit trainer got some spotlight when they were revealed,so now it’s the female villagers time.
