Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Eight
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Sonic kicks in, Wii Fit Trainer chills out, Pit battles Samus and more
No Monday would be complete without a fresh dose of Super Smash Bros. screenshots, courtesy of Masahiro Sakurai's efforts on the Miiverse Director's Room community. We don't know when the game will arrive — apart from a vague 2014 window — but we'll happily feast our eyes on more screens.
Last week's screens didn't include any character reveals, so instead Sakurai-san focused on some details, while also throwing in a 3DS screen for portable gaming fans. We have a look at Fox McCloud's rather snazzy blaster that opens up, we learn that Link's shield has a slight impact backwards when blocking attacks, and we see Sonic's standard attack (called PPK) that rounds off with a side kick. There's also a picture of the Wii Fit Trainer relaxing while flying over Wuhu Island, and if you look closely we think you'll spot a retro island possibly inspired by Pilotwings.
Check them all out below, and you can see the original Miiverse posts by clicking on the date headings.
So there you have it, some attractive and revealing screens to gawk upon. Let us know which catch your eye in the poll and comments below.
