Super Smash Bros game director Masahiro Sakurai has showcased two new screenshots in his daily Miiverse picture. And it’s a day for Mega Man fans with two fantastic trophies featuring the classic anti-hero Bass and the Mega Man X protagonist and legendary fighter Zero. Both trophies are exclusive to the Wii U version and were made from scratch by the designers, as Sakurai says in his post.
The director also confirms the appearance of two other Mega Man characters in trophy form – Roll and Proto Man – cementing Nintendo’s relationship with Capcom further. Though we don’t get a glimpse of Roll and Proto Man’s trophies, it will be a nice surprise to fans of the franchise when Super Smash Bros for Wii U releases on November 21 for North America and December 5 for Europe. You can check out Sakurai’s Miiverse post below:
“Here’s Bass, a trophy for the Wii U version!! When I first saw this, I was really surprised by the quality of this trophy and Treble’s presence. Even though this will only appear as a trophy, this was made from the ground up. Designers really are amazing.
Capcom has today announced that the latest addition to Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is Mega Man. Your Palico gets equipped with Mega Man armor and the mighty Rush Hammer in Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed via Miiverse that Mega Man’s Dr Wily will be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS as a Trophy. Sakurai also mentioned that there will be a trophy shop in the game where you can purchase certain trophies for those not patient enough.
Here’s the trophy gallery for the 3DS version. You can rotate the trophies by drawing circles on the bottom screen. Super Smash Bros. Brawl had tons of trophies, but rumor has it that the 3DS version alone may have more than Brawl. Looks like the Dr. Wily that we made from scratch for the 3DS version is on his knees in disbelief.
Here’s something new–the trophy shop. If you’re having a hard time getting certain trophies, why not just buy them? They sometimes go on sale, too.
