Here’s The New Trailer For Super Smash Bros. Wii U And 3DS

Nintendo has released a new trailer for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The video stars new challenger Greninja, the final evolution of Froakie from Pokemon X and Y. Although it was playable via the Pokemon Trainer in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Charizard will also be a selectable character with its own set of unique moves. Super Smash Bros for 3DS launches this summer, whereas the Wii U version will arrive in the winter.


Custom Move Sets Added For Smash Bros, But Can’t Be Used In Online Multiplayer Matchmaker

In today’s Super Smash Bros. Direct, a couple of new features have been added, with one of these namely the custom move set. However, the move sets are only able to be used in online multiplayer with friends, local co-op mode or single-player mode. We’ll be hearing more about these in the future, so no doubt we’ll see a few in those daily Miiverse posts from the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai.


Yoshi Makes A Triumphant Return To Super Smash Bros

Our favourite green dinosaur Yoshi has made a gleeful and triumphant return to Super Smash Bros, plus he’s had a few mechanical changes to boot. With his latest adventure on the 3DS in Yoshi’s New Island and his past appearances in games, it was quite clear he would make the character roster this time around. He joins Sheik and Zero Suit Samus from today’s Direct.


Pokemon Master Ball Will Allow You To Summon Rare And Legendary Pokemon Onto The Field

Today’s Smash Bros Direct has revealed the new Master Ball item will allow players to summon various Pokemon onto the field. As always, Master Balls should only be used in the rarest of circumstances within the Pokemon games. So it stands to reason that the Master Ball will only allow you to summon rare and legendary Pokemon, with Arceus highlighted in the Direct.


Super Smash Bros Release Date Won’t Be Revealed During Direct, Rather A “Rough Release Window”

Super Smash Bros. has been penned for a 2014 release date for a good numbers of months now, but those who thought an official date could be on the cards in today’s Direct will just have to wait a little longer. According to a tweet from Japan’s Super Smash Bros. Twitter account, the Direct will only reveal a “rough release window” for the upcoming brawler. Many are under the impression Nintendo could be saving news of the official release date for E3 later this year. Here’s what the tweet says, translated by Siliconera.

“[Notice] We are currently not at a stage where we can announce a concrete release date; however, in tomorrow’s broadcast, we will be revealing a rough release window.”


Sakurai Says Super Smash Bros Direct Will Be “Worth The Wait”

Game director Masahiro Sakurai has reminded Super Smash Bros. fans over on Miiverse that the Nintendo Direct scheduled for later today will be “worth the wait”. Another Wii U screenshot joined his announcement on the Nintendo community boards, showing Pikachu climbing over the upgraded crates and gift box found within the game.

Sakurai says there will be plenty of new information in the Direct, but as expected he doesn’t drop any hints, though says it’s definitely not to be missed. We’ll be on hand to divulge all the new and juicy information, character reveals, or mechanical changes here on MNN as soon as it airs. You can catch the live stream from 3pm PT, 6pm ET or 11pm UK time and 12am CEST on the official Smash Bros. website or on the Nintendo website.


Animal Crossing’s Isabelle Joins Super Smash Bros As An Assist Trophy


Isabelle from Animal Crossing: New Leaf has joined Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS as an Assist Trophy. According to Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai, the cheerful character will assist players with fresh-picked fruit from her town. Nintendo recently announced that a Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct will air on Tuesday, April 8th. The upcoming online presentation will provide new details on the forthcoming fighting game, which arrives later this year.


Zelda Gust Bellows Item To Feature In Super Smash Bros.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai has posted a new Wii U screenshot for Super Smash Bros. this morning, revealing another Zelda item. The Gust Bellows, which allows you to blow your opponents away, joins the previously announced Beetle and Fairy Bottle items for the upcoming brawler and, to a lesser extent, the Cuccos.

But this isn’t the end of new Zelda items as Sakurai mentions the most interesting will be reformulated for the fighting universe. Could Spirit Tracks or Skyward Sword’s whip be the next item? Feel free to speculate in the comments below. Here’s what the director said on Miiverse:

“The Gust Bellows can blow opponents away with its powerful wind blasts. When someone drops it, though, the gusts run wild! Out of the new items, more than a few will be from The Legend of Zelda series. We’ll take the most interesting and straightforward ones and reformulate them to match the Smash Bros. world.”


Super Smash Bros. 3DS Screenshot Shows Comparison Between Character Outlines

smash_bros_3ds_outlinesThe brawler’s director Masahiro Sakurai is back for another update with the 3DS version for Super Smash Bros. Today, Sakurai has posted a comparison image, showing fans exactly how the black outline works to greater effect within the handheld edition. But if you’re not a fan of the black outlines, the director has confirmed that it can be customisable. A minute but crucial update. Here’s what Sakurai said on Miiverse:

“Here’s a comparison of characters with and without their outlines on the 3DS version. They also give off a different impression in 3D, so customize the look however you like.”


Zelda Cucco Marks Territory In New Smash Bros. Wii U Screenshot

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has kicked off this week by posting the arrival of the Cuccos from The Legend of Zelda. It’s a ceremonious occasion, of course, since this is the first time fans have seen the Zelda Cuccos strutting their stuff in the battle arena. Though, as dubious as ever, Sakurai hasn’t confirmed whether our feathery friends – or should that be clucking fiends? – are an item or an assist trophy. Either way, Toon Link looks ready to launch an attack. Here’s what Sakurai said on Miiverse regarding the Wii U screenshot:

“Never bully Cuccos. Seriously, attacking them is out of the question! This has always been a cardinal rule of The Legend of Zelda series.”
