If Samus in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. is ultimately going to be heavily influenced by the design from Metroid: Other M, then perhaps she'll be less the silent and deadly hunter from the Metroid Prime Trilogy and more prone to flashbacks, fearing the past and generally being full of angst. The latest assist trophy may, then, send our hero into lengthy monotone reminiscences of battles from the past.

As you can see below, Masahiro Sakurai has used his Miiverse Director's Room to reveal Mother Brain as a rather large assist trophy.

Mother Brain Trophy Assist

Sakurai-san is clearly excited about this one, judging by the text accompanying the new screenshot:

Pic of the day. Housed within the Control Capsule! Protected by Rinkas! Eyeball armed with a Laser Brain Attack!! The massive Assist Trophy Mother Brain joins the collection!!

Of the assist trophies seen so far, this has to be up their as one of our favourites; it sure looks deadly. Let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
