Week 43: 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.

On 4/8, at 3 PM PST (8/4 11 PM UK time), we’ll be airing a Super Smash Bros. Direct!! There will be all kinds of info about the new Smash Bros. games on this simultaneous global stream that will be delivered “directly” to you, so don’t miss it! It’s airing at a really late time for some of you, but it’ll probably be worth the wait. You can watch the stream from the official site (www.smashbros.com).

Your character starts a Smash Run as a relatively ordinary fighter. But before the game, you can outfit yourself with certain items that can help power you up early, which will give you a big advantage later on!! These items are much like the Powers you’d find in Kid Icarus: Uprising.

For those who are wondering what Smash Run is, check out the Super Smash Bros. Direct. You can find the link on the post two days before this one.

I’m expecting a newcomer, a returning Pokemon, a returning original or a character from a currently unrepresented series (ex. Ice Climbers), an assist trophy or two, a stage or two, maybe some items, a lot of technical details and gimmicks, and, sadly, a 2015 delay.

Ideas for assist trophies:
-Ice Bro. (Super Mario): Throws Ice balls for freeze the players.
-Gobblegut (Super Mario): He comes from the sky and go with his all powers for underground, after he comes from underground and go directly for the sky.
-Pokémon Trainer (Pokémon): Throw 3 pokeballs and Squirtle, Charizard and Ivysaur enter in the battle as pokeball pokemons.

Considering his great difficulty with handling the roster size, I doubt Sakurai would put in a “joke character.” Either he’s considered a legitimate Zelda rep, or he’s not in.

Well 29 Characters are in this Smash….quite a feat. We’ve passed the Melee roaster. So we can expect, Jigglypuff, Ness, Mr. Game and Watch, and……Captain Falcon…..-__-. That equals up to 33 characters.. There is still the possibility of Wario. So that equals 34. So a total of 4-6 more characters could be announced. Unless the roaster exceeds 40 characters than yay. 😀 So I for expect 2 more newcomers…possibly 3. Most likely to be revealed around May or E3. If any of them are 3 party I hope for Llyod Irving or Pacman….as for returning veterans…anyone else got any idea… Read more »

considering the roster has grown with every game, and on average 10 more people are added to the game(not including alternate forms) per version, we should excpect 44+ people. Those people are most likely all the ones you mentioned, bringing it to 34 2 more starfox characters like brawl, most likely wolf and falco. bringing it up to 36 Mewtwo could still be in the game, because the pokemon series has always had lots of characters, bringing it up to 37. Also, there are only fire and water starters mentioned in the games so far, so there is probably a… Read more »

Yeah it’s already been confirmed that their not adding any other Sonic characters it’s just him….for Starfox…I rather have Falco than Wolf.

But either way…Sakurai has now until Summer(August hopefully) to reveal characters…since the 3DS version is coming out and they have confirmed both characters will have the same characters. The final roaster in the 3DS version will be in the WiiU.

So the real question is…how many characters can Sakurai reveal before the August release…..and how many will be kept a secret.

I can’t lie, when I first saw greninja I thought it was mewtwo, but then I realized Mewtwo can’t do the move. Also I’m thinking 8 pokemon reps though that seems like a lot. Pikachu, Charizard, Lucario, Greninja, Jigglypuff, Mewtwo, Squirtle, and Ivysaur.

Sakurai said that switching characters are gone because he wants people to be able to focus on one moveset so their still possible rendering Pokémon Trainer kinda pointless. Pokémon Trainer could be with squirtle however. I actually prefer Squirtle over Mewtwo.
