Sunday Smash: Ride the Dragoon!
Greetings g1s and new challengers alike and welcome to another edition of Sunday Smash! Your one stop destination for all of the latest news and screenshots related to the highly anticipated fourth installment of Super Smash Bros.
Yeah, there's nothing from the news desk this week but Mr. Sakurai's latest batch of Miiverse screenshots reveal some cool new things that are well worth a look, so here we go!
Sakurai kicked off the work week with a nifty tip for those planning to make the Smash Bros. Ring stage their first Wii U brawling destination. Turns out if you jump high enough, you can hide from your opponents in rafters and wait for your moment to strike from above! ... Unless they find you first.
Tuesday's screencap offered up another hint, this time for players who can't wait to dive into the 3DS version's Smash Run mode. Enemies like Mets and Octoroks love hide and attack from the floor. You won't be able to reach them with basic standing strikes but don't worry. Just keep your cool, duck, then take em' out with a grab!
On Wednesday, Sakurai revealed characters from Platinum Games' The Wonderful 101 will in be in Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS as Trophies. The first to be shown off was the group's super cool leader, Wonder Red. Hopefully this news doesn't rule out anyone from the 101 being a playable character.
Fans were given a look at the Bullet Bill item on Thursday and the legendary Air Ride machine, The Dragoon, was confirmed for a return on Friday! The Dragoon is being given a few touch ups, including a new design for the targeting screen, which will support steroscopic 3D on the 3DS.
Well, that’s it for this week. Be sure to come back next Sunday and every Sunday until the launch of Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS for more Nintendo mascot craziness!
