Sunday Smash: Waluigi and Dedenne Shock the WVBA
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.
Unlike the previous two cycles, this week's round of Smash Bros. updates did not see the reveal of any additional playable characters (sorry Professor Layton), but Mr. Sakurai did treat fans with the reveals of some other nifty new things via screnshots.
But before we get into what's new, Monday's screenshot provided another look at Diddy Kong's Rocketbarrel Boost, as the smaller Kong used it to knock Little Mac and The Villager out of Dr. Wily's ring.
Now, onto the new stuff.
On Tuesday, Sakurai revealed a new stage...kinda. The Smash director confirmed that the Smash Bros. Arena stage will have two variations. One of which will sport a Smash Bros. ring, while the other contains the WVBA World Circuit ring from Punch-Out!!
On Wednesday, he announced a slight expansion to the movesets of certain characters, as those who have infinite standard-A combos now have a finishing move. This was demonstrated by Fox McCloud, with a swift kick to Samus' abdomen.
Thursday saw the return of everyone's favorite evil doppelganger (that isn't Wario) Waluigi, who will be reprising his role from Brawl as an Assist Trophy, and Friday saw the Smash Bros. debut of Kalos' electric mouse Dedenne, who will be joining Xerneas and Palkia as a Pokeball Pokemon.
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!
