This Super Smash Bros. Screen K.O. Shot is a Great Start to the Weekend

It looks awesome in motion

It's Friday, which means many of us can look ahead to a weekend of relaxation and, probably, some games. Sadly the new Super Smash Bros. entries aren't included on our list of games to play, but we can nevertheless get into the weekend spirit with Masahiro Sakurai's latest Miiverse Pic of the Day.

This entry is perfect end-of-week fodder, especially as it shows one of the most amusing animations in the new titles. The screen K.O. shot isn't new, of course, but the first time we saw it in the Wii U version we couldn't help but laugh — it looks fantastic in motion, and is actually pretty amusing with the 3D on the 3DS, too. In addition, Sakurai-san took the chance to explain some balancing that'll kick in towards the end of a brawl.

Pic of the day. Here's a Screen K.O. shot. There are also patterns where players will disappear into the sky for Star K.O.s, but as a match's time limit approaches, those K.O.s will not occur anymore.

Remember, only with the power of HD can you so accurately replicate Mario's chubby cheeks squishing against glass. The wonders of technology.
