Mario Party Legacy

Week 60: Super Smash Bros. Official Site Updates

smashbrosslider

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.

In this Smash Bros. installment, this little guy is also making an appearance! I…don’t know his name, but he’s the Prince of the Sablé Kingdom. He’s from the Game Boy game Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru (translated as The Frog For Whom the Bell Tolls), which was only released in Japan.

ssbday295b

Here’s the trophy of the Sablé Prince. He transforms into a snake or a frog, and unloads multiple attacks on any opponent he catches. Keep attacking your foes when they’re trapped in his dust cloud.

Look at these three radiant pieces… Yup, you guessed it! It’s another combinable item like the Dragoon-the Daybreak.

ssbday296b

This is what it looks like when all three parts are combined together. How powerful will its beam blast be? FYI, you can fire shooting items while moving backward and forward. Change direction by flicking the Control Stick or Circle Pad toward the back of the fighter.

Victini and Xerneas are both support Pokémon. Victini’s Victory Star boosts the attack of whoever throws the Poké Ball, and also prevents flinching. Xerneas’s Geomancy increases the launch power of all fighters, but exceptionally raises it for whoever had the Poké Ball.

Here’s the trophy gallery for the 3DS version. You can rotate the trophies by drawing circles on the bottom screen. Super Smash Bros. Brawl had tons of trophies, but rumor has it that the 3DS version alone may have more than Brawl. Looks like the Dr. Wily that we made from scratch for the 3DS version is on his knees in disbelief.

ssbday298b

Here’s something new–the trophy shop. If you’re having a hard time getting certain trophies, why not just buy them? They sometimes go on sale, too.

“♪Ba-ding!♪” If you turn on the 3D effect, it really looks like there’s a Game Boy inside the screen.

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).

    Hey guys, I’ve a questionar for you. From the 5 daily pictures, what do you like most? Me, I like most the Trophy Shop one.

    • RobinFTW

      I prefer the Daybreak pictures, but I really appreciate the Trophy Shop concept.

    • RafalRib

      Trophy Shop

  • koopa 27

    it may look like a stage but did sakuri confirm that it’s a stage. I don’t think so he said

    “♪Ba-ding!♪” If you turn on the 3D effect, it really looks like there’s a Game Boy inside the screen.
    which is also on top and I know I might be a stage and I agree that it is but I am not sure if it really isit could be a mode but It could be a stage

  • Marioman01

    For a last minute character, Nintendo could add in my idea for a video game franchise. And if you guys want to know how it is, then you’ll have to guess this question right if you want to know who it is:
    One of the games I came up with for the character has 5 worlds based on the five areas from a DS game. If you guess the game correctly, then I’ll tell you who the character is.
    PS: This is Marioman01 posting this from my family Ipad.

    • Name

      …why would they add a fanmade character…?

      • Marioman01

        You got a point there. But my character idea could be made into a franchise and they could add the character in the fifth Smash Bros game. So for me to say who and what the character is, you have to guess the correct Nintendo DS game that I’m getting inspiration from.

  • VideoTanooki

    So it seems that the Mii’s are like the fighting Polygons, Wireframes, and alloys in this game, honestly a little disappointed by this, but I’m sure I’ll get over it while bashing their faces in.

    • Luigiguy567

      Where does it say that?

        Here is a scan of a translation of a magazine page

        • Luigiguy567

          Oh. Well, at least I got Classic mode right (Simple Mode picture. A little while ago, I predicted what the different modes would look like).

        • Sea Slug and Wagashi

          New WFT palette swap in the Home-Run Contest pic??? It looks like she’s wearing a white tank top with a blue logo on her back.

  • Does anyone think the Stage Builder Mode will return? Along with the Tournament? I hope they both do cause I like building Stages and doing Tournaments.

    • Boo3DSmashBoo

      The tournaments will probably return, but I doubt Stage Builder will appear in the 3DS.

      • RobinFTW

        Maybe the Stage Builder will be a exclusive mode to the Wii U, to “counter” (don’t know what is the word) with the Smash Run mode exclusive to the 3DS.

  • Boo3DSmashBoo

    Do you guys notice that Bowser is the only character in Smash Bros. who enters in the Super Mario series and don’t own a game.
    Mario – Super Mario (obviously)
    Luigi – Luigi’s Mansion
    Peach – Super Princess Peach
    Yoshi – Yoshi’s Island
    Donkey Kong – Donkey Kong Country (and other stuff)
    Diddy Kong – Diddy Kong Racing
    Wario – WarioWare and Wario Land
    Bowser – Nothing (also known as crap)

    • Michael Ingram

      Rosalina?

      Bowser’s Inside Story is practically his own game.

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        Oh, ok. So if Bowser has Bowser’s Inside Story, Rosalina has Super Mario Galaxy, well kinda.

        • Mister Sushi

          You made a pretty fair point there.

    • CuriousUser

      I still hope they don’t leave out Bowser Jr. in the game, long and well deserved for a Place in the Roster. He hasn’t been playable in ANY Wii U Game so far (unless he makes DLC or Amiibo for MK8).

      • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

        he’s playable in mario & sonic at the sochi 2014 olympic winter games a wii u game. and there’s 5 mario characters

      • ImpaDude

        Not at all. They still need toad and daisy, it would be like having only Mario Luigi Peach DK and Diddy Kong… It just wouldn’t feel right. I say maybe in the 6th one he may appear. Not trying to put down ur dreams, but I’m just using common sense. Diddy is being used as a DK representative, not a mario one so it makes sense

        • CuriousUser

          Bowser Jr.’s already become a Big Hit to the Mario Series since his Debut, and well deserves a Spot on the Roster as a Fighter, in the Super Smash Bros. series. For Years, he’s been a character Many Fans have had Expectations for.

          • ImpaDude

            So has rosalina, daisy, toad, and heck, even waluigi for the matter. There’s too many other characters than b.j. To use

          • Hey Impadude somethings wrong with my Google+, so can we talk about our race here? Sorry its off topic. P.S. I’m in eastern time zone and its 8:08 right now

          • ImpaDude

            I’m in the same time zone. Maybe today at 11:00? That works for me I think

          • Sure Want to make a tournament?

          • ImpaDude

            Nah, we can just do a fun room. If we were to do a tournament, we would need more people… Luigi guy? Dixie? Anyone else?

          • I asked Dixie and Luigiguy. Dixie said no and luigiguy didn’t answer so lets go with a fun room. My Nintendo Network ID is Dominc, my real name purposely misspelled.

          • ImpaDude

            ahhh, okay. see u then

          • ImpaDude

            can i make the funroom pls? also u turned off the ability to get friend requests

          • You can make the fun room and I can’t accept friend requests because I’m 12. LOL. The only way is to type in my id dominc no caps in the friend list. then can i have your id?

          • ImpaDude

          • Boo3DSmashBoo

            Sorry for this, but isn’t your name Dry Bones in spanish?

          • Huesitos

            Yup

    • You forgot Rosalina… I’m just gonna say the game for her is Super Mario Galaxy..

    • Marioman01

      WHAT R U TALKING ABOUT!

    • Luigiguy567

      Yeah… No.

    • He’s not even logged in=troll

    • RobinFTW

      Source?

    • SonicShadow

      Oh, i know about that.

      Im gonna watch it even if its a troll.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Au_mzRFYRY

      • It’s just gonna be a troll video without revealing anything. Doubt they will even make a fake thing for the video

      • ImpaDude

        Is this fake?

      • king K.Rool and Krystal

        This Is very strange, because today is Saturday, and do not have new news for Smash…

        • Yeah, that’s why it’s probably a troll.

          • Luigiguy567

            I’m gonna watch it just to make sure.

          • Boo3DSmashBoo

            Even knowing that’s almost 100% fake, I’ll still watch too. I’m curious of what thing they gonna make.

          • king K.Rool and Krystal

            Maybe it’s a screamer!

          • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

            screamer screams in! final smash:scares everyone and it has an one hit KO power!

          • king K.Rool and Krystal

            Game over!

          • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

            it’s super effective!

          • king K.Rool and Krystal

            The name of final smash is Heart Atack!

          • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

            or blind attack

          • king K.Rool and Krystal

            I’m out!

        • RobinFTW

          It’s not even the official channel of Super Smash Bros, because it contain no other video.

      • Well I looked at their youtube profile annnnd…. The person is a total fake. They obviously just made the account and only have 1 video which is this video, so I’ll doubt that it’s real. Also the Smash Bros. Site would of said they were announcing someone.

      • Called it! So fake xD
        I don’t believe this is real at all..

        • Luigiguy567

          What does it say?

          • We are experiencing technical difficulties. Please Stand By.
            I doubt that it’s real cause that would never happen if it was from Nintendo

          • Luigiguy567

            OK, good. It’s not just me.

          • Yeah, I bet it will stay like that until they end the video

          • Luigiguy567

            Plus, the official website hasn’t been updated.

          • Yeah

          • Luigiguy567

            Mine finally worked! The result… A fake Shadow and Chorus Men trailer.

        • Luigiguy567

          Ok. Mine’s working now. It’s just a fake reveal trailer for Shadow.

        • SonicShadow

          Everyone called it.

        • I think I’ve seen one like that before where someone put Mewtwo’s head on Greninja.

      • Megatoad91

        HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        Fake, fake and fake.

      • This is so fake its funny

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        *Music* In this wooooorld. I this wooooooooorld. In this world this is a stupid fake thing. In this wooooooorld everyone will be sick, but it will be just because they see this. In this wooooorld. In this woooorld, oh yeah. In this woooorld this video is like crap. This is shit, this isn’t complete, this like if you fail the f***. You’re not ready, not yet for see this crap like the one in his pants. In this wooooorld…

      • RafalRib

        WTF Did I just watch????

      • Braystar

        Nope.

      • Is the beginning theme a remix of Bowser Jr’s battle second part in Mario Party 9 or is it just me?
        (This: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7ZlDUU92Sk)

  • Luigiguy567

    I know the entire roster won’t be revealed by Corocoro on August 12th, but I’m hoping we get some sort of surprise. Like the announcement of a second Smash Direct.

    • Same here, or I think they should reveal a couple more veterans. Or 1 newcomer.

    • Boo3DSmashBoo

      I wonder if Sakurai announce something in Monday, in case we get reveals by CoroCoro next day.

  • Boo3DSmashBoo

    Things that need to be changed for the next Smash Bros. game:
    1. Grab – In the first smash bros. the grab attack was so powerful and in the latest smash bros. it was so weak that kinda lost some fun.
    2. Self-Destructions – Again I’ll compare the original to Brawl. In the original you self-destruct and one less point to you, in the Brawl is one less point to you a one more point to other guy who don’t kill you, if play in time, the game will probably be unfair.
    3. Final Smashes – There’s Final Smashes like Peach and Ice Climber ones that suck and other ones like Fox and Sonic ones that were overpowered, what sucks too if don’t play with any of them, and again the battle will be unfair. By the way heard from ProJared (Youtube Channel) who was at E3 that Sonic’s Final Smash will be more difficult to control, being it a little less powerful this time around.

    I know that in the comment I kinda show the poor things of Brawl, but still be the best Super Smash Bros. game I ever played.

    • 8B1T

      1. But chain grabs are ridiculously powerful. (I don’t like them personally.)
      2. That’s something to do with the last player damage reset in Brawl not resetting until 3 min.
      3. Or just play without FSes on. :p Peach and JP need better ones.

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        1. They’re also ridiculously weak in Brawl. I’m also just saying for that don’t be so weak like in Brawl, but ok not so powerful as the original.
        2. Sorry, but I don’t get it.´
        3. Play with FS still be better and I agree with the Peach and JP and I think IC need one better too, IC’s FS just give damage and it’s easy to avoid in almost every stage.

    • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

      and I’m sooo glad they’ve took out tripping in this smash! and yeah,Peach’s final smash needs to be changed(even though I liked her dance) and also,it’s nice that now in stock matches the life icons are the players heads like in melee instead of little balls like in brawl.

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        yeah, I agree it’s nice to see that back in the life icons. I play always or almost always in stock so for me it’s pretty good news see classic stuff there.

    • Braystar

      I HATE Peaches FS

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        It’s pretty bad her FS

  • Boo3DSmashBoo

    Last night I had dream… it was the second Smash Direct’s day and was seeing the reveal trailer. It was shown not one, not two, but 5 newcomers being Bowser Jr., Lana, Sceptile, Isaac (of course he appear in my dream) and the stupid faces. I was so happy but at the same time so mad, I wanted the dream to end because it turned into a nightmare. The stupid faces were no other than Chorus Men. They gave me nightmares. Suddently I wake and oh my god that wasn’t a dream, because I get up and see a white face in the front of me and I say ***********************************************************************************. When I realize that was my brother and I was just watching at him while I was little dizzy it was too late, he said the word who will piss me off for the rest of my life, he said… Chorus Men. ******************************* And more words came out of my mounth. This is just a story but the dream part was actually real.

    • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

      and I dreamed 3 times about you know who being in smash.

      • king K.Rool and Krystal

        I dreamed with Toadette in Mario Party 10!

        • Marioman01

          That would make sense. She could be playable in Mario Party 10. After all, she was playable in the Mario Party games since Mario Party 6, and she make her grand reappearance in Mario Kart 8.

        • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

          another of my dreams

          • ImpaDude

            hey r u around for mk8 in ten minutes?

          • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

            I can’t. I’m going out in some minutes

          • ImpaDude

            oh ok

    • I don’t know why, but I’ve actually dreamed that Jigglypuff was replaced with Clefairy.

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        When I was around 6 years old I thought that they’re the same pokemon. :p

  • SonicShadow

    25 PoTDs left before japanese release…

    HYPE

  • Sup

    Beware tomorrow, because of Deconfirmation Monday as we got two people that fans wanted playable that got deconfirmed this Monday and last Monday. I wonder who’s getting deconfirmed next…

    • Nookling

      Probably a lesser character. So far both had small fan bases

  • RafalRib

    IM BACK FROM VACATION PEOPLE!!!!!! What was that thing about the new character reveal???

    • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

      fake

    • Dixie Kong for SSB4!

      it was shadow and chorus men reveal,but fake

    • Marioman01

      Some Noob Nugget took footage from the other trailers and slapped Shadow’s face on them. Plus THE STUPID CHORUS MEN! When will those Noob Nuggets learn that Shadow and Chorus Men have no shot to fight. AT ALL!

      • Sup

        Chorus Men might be a weird choice as playable, but Nintendo did make Mr. G&W playable. You will have to see and wait, not deny it down. They are not Ridly or something that is unnecessary. P.S They are not stupid, Shadow is stupid.

        • Luigiguy567

          He chose Game & Watch because he had an entire series of games to work from. R.O.B. seemed odd, but he also had a crapload of accessories to use. And Wii Fit Trainer had elements from every minigame in the entire Wii Fit franchise that she could use. What would Chorus Men do? Sing? Throw other Rhythm Heaven characters? Plus, at this point we only have about 1-2 newcomers left to go, and the only probable newcomers left are Issac, Shulk (who is pretty much guaranteed), and Dixie Kong. I can see the Chorus Men as an Assist Trophy, but that’s about it.

          P.S. Yes, the main antagonist of the Metroid franchise has a higher chance than them. And I don’t even like Ridley that much. And Shadow is WAY better than the Chorus Men.

          P.S.S. STILL think the Gematsu rumor is fake? No Smash rumor has EVER been real. Even the Palutena leak’s screenshots were fake.

          • Luigiguy567

            I can’t edit my comment now because it’s too big for my IPad, but the only rumor that was real with no fake screenshots, sources, etc. was a beta element of Lucas replacing Ness in Melee. Obviously, this never made the final cut, but two things:
            1. It was rumor about a BETA element.
            2. Sakurai made an announcement that the rumor was indeed true almost immediately after the rumor was first spread. It’s been many months sense the Gematsu rumor was first revealed, and… not a single word from Sakurai.

          • Sup

            This is the only reply you are getting as I will not read your future replies: 1. This conversation does NOT involve you at ALL. 2. Nether of your comments doesn’t make any sense. That’s all. We’ll have to see and wait as I stated in the past.

          • RafalRib

            Well i’m happy if they are only a Assist but please no Shadow!

          • Nookling

            Why wouldn’t King K, or Ghirahim be at all probable?

          • Luigiguy567

            King K.- Already hinted as a Smash Run boss.
            Ghirahim- Not the main antagonist of the Zelda franchise.

      • Luigiguy567

        1. Shadow could fight, but he’s not that much of a fan-favorite character anymore. Plus, a second Sonic fighter is not allowed.
        2. Agree about Chorus Men 100%.

      • RafalRib

        WAIT WAIT WAIT Chorus Man are my most wanted smash newcomer so please dont talk bad about them because they can fight! Sakurai has the imagination to insert a proper moveset like Game and Watch! But agree with Shadow!

        • Luigiguy567

          1. It’s his opinion. He can talk bad about Chorus Men if he wants.
          2. Shadow is far more suitable for battle than Chorus Men.

          • Nookling

            I think any character could be made suitable for battle, and that said I would much rather have Chorus men then another Sonic character.

          • Luigiguy567

            1. Yep, a Goomba, Cream the Rabbit, and Slipy Toad are TOTALLY suitable for battle.
            2. I think the opposite. ANY Sonic character over the Chorus Men for me.

          • Nookling

            I still think you could make a good moveset for Cream the Rabbit and Slippy (although I might puke thinking about it). You got me on Goomba but he could have a charge dash, maybe his up B could be a tower of goombas, his duck could be him flattening, he could bite people, maybe he could land on people as move? Haha it would be so ironic!!! Honestly, there are going to be characters who aren’t good choices, but Chorus Men could have a very unique and fun moveset. What with there being three of them and there aren’t any music based characters yet.

            On the sonic thing, I just don’t like any sonic characters except for Silver, Blaze, Shadow, and Rogue. And even them I don’t want in

          • Person McPerson

            slippy toad’s final smash: annoy’s everyone to death with his stupid quotes

    • ImpaDude

      it was nothing

    • Boo3DSmashBoo

      Good to see you back and that new character thing was a stupid fake reveal.

  • I don’t know if I’m more excited for Smash Bros. or Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. I want both SO BAD!!

    • Boo3DSmashBoo

      I just know that I’ve 4 games that I just want to buy them right now. They’re Smash Bros., Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, Yoshi’s Wooly World and Hyrule Warriors.

      • In a way, that’s six games you want to buy, not four.

        • Boo3DSmashBoo

          Oh, in that case 5. I’m just thinking in buy the Alpha Sapphire version.

  • Nookling

    The direct for smash must be coming soon! And if not, then we will still know all in under two months!

  • king K.Rool and Krystal

    I am under the impression That We see characters from Hyrule Warriors Announced!
    * cough cough * Ganondorf….

    • The new moveset he has in Hyrule Warriors could work great in Smash Bros. AND He won’t be a heavy clone of Captain Falcon!!!¡¡¡ That always bothered me!

    • The heck Sonic is doing on that lonely island? What do you think you’re doing, Yellow Devil, on the top of the Goddess Statue? Victini, look out behind you! Yoshi, watch your tail! Robin, it looks like Fennekin is about to scorch you! Chespin, Waluigi is about to stomp you!
      Midna: It’s a beautiful day, isn’t it, Pikachu?
      Pikachu: Pika pi! (Yes, Midna, the air feels really refreshing!)

        What can I say, I guess just that’s a busy say in Skyloft.

    • Sea Slug and Wagashi

      The bloodthirsty monster dancing on the Goddess Statue is seriously worrying me. ;P

    • The Mii Gunner is in the perfect position to snipe everyone. XD

    • Everyone is creating wallpapers thanks to me :3

      • Yeah man thanks so much for that link! Haha, link.

    • Person McPerson

      wait… where’s Mario?

      • Boo3DSmashBoo

        Probably in Mario World.

  • Nookling

    You guys -_- Ganondorf will not appear in smash as he does in Hyrule Warriors… That’s even more hopeless than Waluigi being playable!

  • Is Meta Knight really confirmed?!?!?!?!?! 😀
