Week 28: 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 16

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

 

Tuesday, December 17

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.

Well I’m wondering if yellow devil will be in an adventure mode type of deal like Melee. The fact that only 2 fighters have ever been seen with yellow devil could back that up as adventure ode would likely only support 2 players

Actually, that’s just Pit’s and Villagers stance when standing still (I remember Villager occasionally scratching his head). While there’s still a possibility Yellow Devil’s a boss, I’m thinking more and more he’s simply a stage hazard, especially by this screenshot. If you look carefully, pit is not even looking at the background; he’s still looking forward, the two of them are just facing to the left with their backs turned toward the screen.

Um, yeah I know that was said, I said the same thing. My personal opinion was that judging by the comment and screenshot, it is more likely for it to be a hazard and not a boss. I could be wrong; and no, I wasn’t talking to you, I was just commenting on the screenshot

This confirms Yellow Devil is a stage hazard. Simply judging from Sakurai’s comment on today’s pic. This, of course, does not rule out the possibility of him being a boss of sorts.

Seems like Palutena sent Pit and his new partner villager on a mission to infiltrate Wily’s castle to defeat his newest robot masters, little did they know that the Yellow Devil (tougher than any twinbellows) would come down from the background and challenge them to a fight.
Will they win? Can they defeat Wily? Find out on the next episode of Dragon Ball Z!

Guys, remember that Nintendo often tends to omit 3rd party material from storyline (there are exceptions, of course.) The fact that Snake does appear in the SSE balances the odds a bit, but Sakurai said that he’s etching away from the “epic all-star smashing” storyline because the internet produces enough of that.

Awesome! 😀 Have you tried Project M? Love the way Sonic and Yoshi control on there.

My top 5 favorites/most used characters:
1. Sonic
2. Olimar
3.Lucario
4.Bowser
5. Sheik
(love Meta Knight, but get accused of him being over-powered if I ever win lol; also love Yoshi, was my main in 64 and Melee). Really the only characters I cannot do much with is DK and Snake, even Ganondorf I can at least put up a fight. I’m REALLY hoping DK is changed to be more powerful in SBWU/SB3DS, used to greatly enjoy playing as him in Melee.

It been 1 week now and there hasn’t been a Nintendo Direct. Nintendo doesn’t have losses anymore(They might in February despite the PS4 release date, but the Wii U will be fine) However, we have this week and two weeks left. My predicts: They won’t have a Direct until January because there isn’t really nothing to announce for the rest of December. Yes, The Year Of Luigi with something special, but there’s just 2 weeks left. They didn’t do a Direct in September because of losses like not good Wii U sales and the death of their former CEO.

Nintendo Direct’s air every month, EVEN THOUGH march and September’s only featured a title or too (Flipnote Studio 3D and Wii Fit U/Wii Sports Club respectively). One shall air no matter what time, even if it’s a mini like July’s as I first thought, no matter what time of the month it is. Wouldn’t you want to know the release date for games like Kirby Triple DX, Yoshi’s New Island and Mario Golf: World Tour?

Soooo Link is just doesn’t care about the fighting…..he just wants to do his job, and I just thought of something, if Wind Waker Link is the past vision or ancestor of Spirit Tracks Link wouldn’t that cause a parodox? Their both Toon Links and their both from the same timeline, just different parts of it……of course this is some random theory made up so it will probably never happen. But still a cool thought though.

Moving on from MagiKooper’s comment below, incredible (regarding the daily pic). We learn more about the stages, why that Auto Scrolling level in the 3DS Version could have two different formats like Brawl’s Mushroomy Kingdom, like in a castle or underground environment, more to come as we get closer to release, some details we may need to see for ourselves at release. Perhaps we should see of a new Wii U Stage, I hope.

Perhaps not, we’ve seen enough WiiU stages for a while, they’ve released footage of WiiU stages almost every 2 months, I don’t even think we’ve seen a NEW 3DS stage ever since the trailers release….and I say new, not remodeled or changing like that one arena with the platforms beginning held up by statue.

Dark Moon
Pokemon X and Y
Dream Team
Bravely Default

I’ll even settle for Sonic……..Nintendo should just show us a new 3DS stage……or 3D assist trophies……something related to the 3DS Version that’s new and we don’t know about.

They’ve already announced that it will mainly focus on games releasing between now and Spring 2014. So Mario Kart 8 may still be in it, but it doesn’t look like any new games will be announced. They probably also won’t give too many Smash news, if any at all, sadly.
