Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue One

With thanks, Sakurai-san

In late July we published a list of our favourite Wii U and 3DS Smash Bros. screens so far. Masahiro Sakurai, the popular designer that leads the franchise, has been releasing a new screenshot every weekday, alternating between Wii U and 3DS images. In most cases they show funny poses or cool moves in action, and occasionally reveal a new stage.

While contemplating reporting on a Metroid: Other M stage that had been shown last week, it occurred to us that once-in-a-blue-moon screens don't necessarily do these regular reveals justice. Consider this the first of a weekly compilation, then, bringing together the screenshots from the previous week; all thank's to the Smash Bros. Director's Room Miiverse community.

Last week's screens include two planes swooping rather close together in the Wuhu Island stage, the image that was posted with confirmation that character outlines can be customised on the 3DS, and the Metroid: Other M Pyrosphere stage. Because that's one of the most adored and popular Metroid titles, right?
