Week 16: 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, September 23

The speed and power of Samus’s Charge Shot has been drastically improved. However, that could potentially put her in danger on occasion.

 

Tuesday, September 24

The ring is for whom?

 

Wednesday, September 25

Luigi’s jump now has him paddling his legs. His vertical leap is undoubtedly high!

 

Thursday, September 26

Toon Link joins the battle!! Just look at those innocent cat-eyes! The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is out in Japan today.

 

Friday, September 27

Excuse me sir, did you happen to drop this bomb?

I hope we see what the Space Stage is this week, and we see a new 3DS Stage confirmed and that we see Zero Suit Samus.

All these comments are encouraging me to think that the main premise of battle is high damage output with decent recovery options. Nice Charge Shot trail by the way. The Reflector overlay looks quite excessive tho…

Ignoring the less than spectacular hand specular lighting / rendering quality, that stage background… makes me think of Pikmin or something.

She actually had it in Melee. 😛

Back then I took it as a reference to SMRPG, in which she had one you needed to recover for her during the Marymore segment.

I’m ready for a new view of the so-called Mario Galaxy stage. Seems like it is about time to me. Maybe the sling star things could be a new item or stage hazard?

I think a Launch Star should be an item by collecting 5 star chips, and a stage hazard for a SMG stage would be for one, Octoomba’s, from the background close to the characters can fire rocks at them.

From how the Original SSB introduced certain characters who can Multi-Jump, Wall Jump in Melee and Crawl in Brawl, what could SSB4 have that certain characters can do? Hover/Descend downward?

Peach could float. I’m talking bout descending after jumping, what else could be introduced that only certain characters can do.

Sorry, I don’t think I know what you mean by that. By descend I think of falling and all characters fall after jumping so I don’t know what you mean 🙁

Slowly Descend, which can be done to adjust your drops, eg. Mario when he has a Super Leaf.

Though I am surprised an unlockable has been confirmed before the rest twards the final release, Toon Link, Sakurai doesn’t seem to get the message to show us what the space stage is.

Sorry for quite the comments I’ve posted, but I now have an avatar and am thinking of using a username, as what I am on the Miiverse, but though I submitted CuriousUser in place of my real name in the settings, it still here displays my real name. Someone like Ronin might be keen to help to show my username rather than real name.

Had Toon Link not appeared in the Spirits Tracks stage back in the trailer I would’ve expected Toon Link but that stage kind threw me a mixed bag of what I should expect.Nevertheless I’m sure he’ll be a good character like he was in Brawl 🙂

Might I also add that I think the SSB4 models of Toon Link are leagues ahead of the Wind Waker HD models for Toon Link.

So I was thinking about final smashes, and how Peach’s doesn’t really knock them out, but puts them to sleep/helps heal herself. I feel they could make it a lot more powerful if they were to incorporate her Vibe Island Emotions as an attack. Don;t you guys agree

I’d be all for that actually, since I thought it was unfortunate none of her moves so far referenced the one game where she was the star.

Possibly, but remember there are three Sonic exclusives(so far) and they could wait to announce him for any one of them.

Assuming that he does get to return of course. 😛

I know a lot of people thing sonic will be announced, but I’m pretty sure Sakurai said something about other 3rd party characters (you know, besides Mega Man) being in “very slim” and I’m pretty sure they will announce a pokemon and not Sonic. Don’t get me wrong, Sonic is just fine.

Well they could announce a Pokemon and Sonic, much like they announced both Peach and Toon Link this month.

Really, I think with Sonic there’s just too much going in his favour to not include him again simply because he is third party.

Of course anything is possible, but with the current relationship between SEGA and Nintendo I’m not seeing what the obstacles would be to include Sonic once again.

That would be so much funnier if it was Link’s bomb; I initially thought it was his and that he was playing a prank on DK/Toon Link(can’t imagine regular Link playing pranks though).

That’s not what it happened. SZ had college classes in the morning, and since the updates come at 12:00 AM PST/1:00 AM PDT, SZ really need his sleep for his classes. So SZ asked H-J to help out with this. Because the times I listed above is really late in the United States.

If Nintendo does release a Pokemon for Smash the day Pokemon X and Y come out, I have a idea for it and I hope its a reality, Mewtwo, my guess is that if Mewtwo has a final smash, it might be Mewtwo X or Mewtwo Y form, like when Sonic’s final Smash was Super Sonic. That would be so awesome 😀
