Super Smash Bros Wii U Screenshot Brings Back The Lethal Home-Run Bat

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has given fans another glimpse into the Wii U and 3DS game, this time showcasing the home-run bat. Of course, it’s no surprise that the home-run bat is making another appearance in the brawler, with it seeing even the most poker face of competitors crack a sweat or quiver at the knees on its arrival in the field.

The black home-run bat, showing in the Wii U screenshot above, instills fear into the biggest of the apes, with Donkey Kong’s eyes bulging as he’s thrown out of the arena at great speed. Toon Link is not to be messed with here. Here’s what Sakurai said on Miiverse:

“Pic of the day. The Home-run Bat in this game is black! And it’s so powerful that your eyes might bug out!!”


    1. How much better could smash look rlly? I mean damn dude chill. I know ur probally just trolling but seriously any one who bought a wii u for this game doesnt give a damn shit about its graphics. We just want a fun new smash brothers game!

  1. One thing I noticed in the pictures they release is the facial expressions. I seriously hope this doesnt drop near the end of this year…lord knows nintendo could use the sales.

  2. This game will help Nintendo but will it be enough? What would Android 17 say about it? “I doubt it.”

    1. @pink0crystal0midbus, that is exactly what i was gonna say and its one of the best pics as you say. cant wait for smash bros and im sure it will help raise the wii u sales, maybe not much but still

  3. The animation looks different than what the old bat animation was. Certainly darker. I wonder what the sound effects for this will be.

  4. The bat is one of my favorites. It’s quick to make you question your family jewels when close to being struck by one.

  5. Am I the only one that thinks Sakurai did a much better job animating Donkey Kong’s fur in HD than Retro? DKCTF fur just doesn’t look good.
