Week 41: 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, March 24

Never bully Cuccos. Seriously, attacking them is out of the question! This has always been a cardinal rule of The Legend of Zelda series.

 

Tuesday, March 25

Here’s a comparison of characters with and without their outlines on the 3DS version. They also give off a different impression in 3D, so customize the look however you like.

 

Wednesday, March 26

Here’s a giant attack item, the Ore Club! It’s made of minerals mined on the mountain of the gods. This bulky weapon can even unleash tornadoes.

 

Thursday, March 27

ssbday203

Oh, Uncle Andross. He really isn’t very considerate.

 

Friday, March 28

ssbday204

Here’s the Prism Tower stage for the 3DS version! The battle begins on ground level right in front of the tower.

ssbday204b

You’ll have to climb the tower by securing footholds like these moving platforms!

ssbday204c

By the time you reach the top, the sun is already setting. The view from up there is quite a treat.

I won’t talk about Smash’s release date for awhile, but let’s just get this out of the way:

If I’m right:
If I’m correct about Smash’s release date being in the summer, I shall earn the title of a true Psychic. (I “predicted” Little Mac’s reveal earlier)

If I’m wrong:
I regret my decisions and deeply apologize to anybody I offended or disagreed with.

Three possible outcomes for this week:

2. Wario is announced this Friday, either normally, or during a Nintendo Direct if Nintendo announces a “Year of Wario”.
3. No character for March.

I predict a Fall/Winter release (closer to Fall, such as September or October). Summer, to me, seems too early.
And I do expect the WiiU version to be released first.

The Wii U is obviously coming first. But I just think considering how much info has and will be revealed over the next few months, I think the Wii U version falls in the June/July/August area, while the 3DS is likely September or October.

Don’t have anything to back this up and it was merely coincidence. I sent my future self a letter in Animal Crossing: City Folk, guessing the day when Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story would release in the US and I was right on the dot. Sept. 14th, 2009. Nothing special but I thought that was awesome.

I think everyone will probably end up using the outlines. You have to remember how big some stages may be, and it is a little screen…

BY THE WAY!!!! Has anyone wondered yet what will be on the bottom screen of the 3ds? (Even the gamepad when being used) I am curious to see what they do.. Maybe statistics?

Well assuming it works like KIU it should…Clubs are extremely powerful but the only down side they were heavy, so you moved slower and it was hard to dodge…..Sakurai will most likely add that little mechanic to the Ogre Club.

Sonic wielding the Ore Club can pretty much be a “speedy uprising” for the Blue Blur. He held a sword before, so he might club Pit on the noggin or just become one with the wind & blow Pit off the temple.

There was indeed a club in KI:U that could summon tornadoes and that I used for the whole game and it was really powerful, like beat a boss in two hits powerful. However, stupid me did not understand the concept of mixing items very well, and I lost that club. Now I have to lower the difficulty level considerably. I wonder if it was this club? 😛

I also remember uselessly spending all of my hearts on the thing where Palutena walks up to you. 😛 I need to get back to that game. So this conversation doesn’t turn out too non-Smash related, I must say, I’m surprised a club got in instead of the Fortune Bow, the Silver Bow or the Palutena Bow. They seem to better represent KI:U. Maybe it’s because clubs are better at close combat than… Read more »

Pit uses the Palutena Bow himself. I personally think bows would just act like the ray guns which would make one or the other redundant. Clubs are unique and are pretty awe inspiring too, and given they aren’t really in any other Ninty series, they’re iconic enough. Maybe. :p (better than cannons, blades or staves anyway)
