Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Thirteen
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Marth's sword, The Villager's net, a MARIO GALAXY STAGE and more
We hope you agree that Mondays are made a little better with more Super Smash Bros. screens, with this 13th entry in our series being unlucky for absolutely no-one; Masahiro Sakurai has been busy, as always, on the Super Smash Bros. Director's Room Miiverse community board. Last week's major revelation (on Friday) was confirmation of a Super Mario Galaxy stage, at this point definitely coming to the Wii U version — the 3DS entry will have unique stages of its own, of course.
Aside from that reveal, Sakurai-san showed off the new design for capsules in the games, explained that Marth's sword has a powerful tip and that "The Villager's bug catching net...is actually a grapple move...sort of like Link's Clawshot and Samus's Grapple Beam." There was also a 3DS screen designed to show off the thick, stylised and customisable outlines in the 3DS game, with the following description given:
The characters' thick outlines are only available in the 3DS version. Only the external outline is thickened and won't appear in instances like when the hands or feet are overlapping. It's got a softness to it and is not just black.
You can see last week's images below, and as always click on the date headings to see the original Miiverse posts.
A real mix this week that tackles moves, visuals and a new stage reveal. Let us know which you like the most in the poll and comments below.

Dat Mario Galaxy stage
Um, I can't decide
To be honest, I don't like any of them
