Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Eleven
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Spin attacks, Wii Fit Trainers, a posing Pit and more
Another working week has begun, but we have Masahiro Sakurai's updates on the Miiverse Super Smash Bros. Director's Room community to get us off to the perfect start. The man with a plan may not be ready to tell us when we can expect the new Super Smash Bros. games to arrive on Wii U and 3DS, but he can keep us entertained with screens in the meantime.
Aside from the appearance of the Male Wii Fit Trainer, which may be a character skin, special move or something else besides, last week's screens focused on sharing a bit of comedy and the occasional tid-bit of information. We learned that each Link's spin attacks will be "very different" in how they hit enemies, and that Pit's pose when shooting his bow and arrow has been tweaked slightly since Kid Icarus: Uprising. Sakurai-san also posted the following reminder:
Do note that all images are still in development. This and past pics may be different from the finished product. Thanks for understanding.
Crikey, it all got vaguely serious for a moment. Let's brush that off and look at some screens, then, which include a mix of Wii U and 3DS treats this time around.
A decent mix this week, we hope you agree. Let us know which you like the most in the poll and comments below.
