Week 49: 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, May 19

Under certain circumstances, the creatures on this planet appear to grow larger and go berserk. The Pikmin and I must be cautious lest we lose our heads to these beasts.

 

Tuesday, May 20

This is the capsule for the Assist Trophies. It may emit rainbow-colored lights, or even blink. Even if there’s something like a Color TV-Game 15 inside…

 

Wednesday, May 21

The leg and arm positions of some characters will automatically be mirrored when facing left or right. Mario, for example, will have his chest shown in the foreground regardless of whether he’s facing right or left. This was quite a tedious task, but thanks to it we can show the best features of each character even better.

Here’s another example: in the previous games, you saw the back of Kirby’s head when facing left. Now Kirby looks great from any angle.

 

Thursday, May 22

In previous games in the series, if you chose the red team in a team battle, your Mario would have been red. But now you can choose any color you want! The color outlining the characters will show their team affiliation.

 

Friday, May 23

aiku

Ike, the swordsman of magnificent strength, joins the battle!! Strike your foes down with his powerful smash attacks.

For this game, Ike’s design is based on the hero that appears in Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. His sword deals heavy damage in Smash Bros., so this design suits him very well! Rest assured, he can use Aether as well.

 

Week 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16 | 17 | 18 | 19 | 20 | 21 | 22 | 23 | 24 | 25 | 26 | 27 | 28 | 29 | 30 | 31 | 32 | 33 | 34 | 35 | 36 | 37 | 38 | 39 | 40 | 41 | 42 | 43 | 44 | 45 | 46 | 47 | 48 | 49

Wasn’t down tilt pulling a weed? I’d say taunt.

WOOOOOOOOOOAHHH did not see this coming at all! Im no fire emblem guy but wasnt he only in one game?

Speaking of new characters…
Sceptile is making more sense now that ORAS have been announced. Not only does smash need that grass starter, but third gen games are gonna be released! It all just makes sense to me. But we’ll have to wait and see to find out ! 😀

Ike was in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn (and appears in DLC for FEA)
I honestly don’t really get the whole theory surrounding Sceptile but I guess I’ll wait until E3 :p

Well why would Nintendo have a Fire and Water Starter but not a grass one? And seeing as 3rd gen remakes were just announced, and Sceptile seems to be the best fit for a grass starter to be added. I dont know, I was just thinkin 😀

Because it’s Sakurai. :p Also I don’t know when the roster was finalized on the developers’ end so I wouldn’t attribute ORAS as a definite addition from Gen 3 specifically.
That said, I have no idea which Poké reps may or may not make the cut

Yes! This is awesome! Sure he might prevent Chrom from joining, but Ike is one of my favourite Smash Bros Characters.

Well Sakurai might change that…I mean think of all the other characters he’s changed….Zero Suit, Bowser, Yoshi, Pit.

Orrrr think of all the people who use Little Mac…….THE MOST OP CHARACTER IN THIS GAME!

Not confirmed, but I’m sure Hyrule Warriors will appear at E3. Also I like to see a Link’s costume like that one in that game.

I’m guessing but I think the game will have 45 characters.
Veterans: Ness, Jiggly, Falcon, Falco, Wario, Meta Knight, Ice Climbers, Game & Watch, Ganondorf, ROB.
Newcomers: Palutena, Isaac, Wonder-Red, Pac-Man, Chrom

Reason I think Lucas won’t make it: Too similar to Ness, unlike Ike, Ike is an unique character, and Lucas only appears in one game who is also not recent (Mother 3), Ike by the other hand appears in 3.

Wonder-red is confirmed to be trophy at the very least, he’ll be less likely to be playable. Good list. i would like to include mewtwo since he is heavily requested all around the world.

Where’s wolf?

Have you seen 4chan demo pic? it is a rumour on roster for smash demo, i’m guessing it fake.
