Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has given us another sneak peek into the 3DS and Wii U game showing off legendary Pokémon Palkia. Smash Bros. fans may remember the Pearl mascot from Brawl in the Spear Pillar stage of the game, but this time around the ‘mon is not just wreaking havoc in the background.
In the Wii U screenshot, Palkia’s emerging straight from a Pokéball and wastes no time getting down to business, unleashing its signature move while newly announced Lucario waits in the wings. Here’s what Sakurai had to say on Miiverse:
“Pic of the day. Palkia appeared in the Spear Pillar stage of the previous game…but now it’s coming out of a Poké Ball?! Here’s Palkia’s signature move, Spacial Rend!”
