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.”


      1. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
        Good one sony4lyfe
        It’s more likely you sucking spelunker’s dick than that happening.

      2. Too bad I’m too much of a dumbass to realize people will buy it and make my comment even more irrelevant.

      3. I’m I the only one who think this game looks like shit. I’m sure it’s gunna be tons of fun and that will account for a lot of the visuals I give the game that but you would think Nintendo would squeeze every last drop of console power with this specific game and yet smash bros looks like a mid-PS3 life cycle game at best. kinda disappointing…

      4. im sure when we all see it in person it’s going to rival any ps4/xbox1 game out there. it won’t have the processing power, so it wont have all the gimmicks, but Nintendo are master game and character designers. this is a game that will live on for years, for as long as folks like me can manage to keep a wii u running. graphics are far from everything.

    1. They should leave Mario alone for a while.
      honestly id like to see a side series from smash, which is a smash version of a characters game, like a “Mario smash” or “Kirby smash”

      rather see glaixy 3 on the 3ds

    2. I’d rather see something original, I dunno maybe time travel would be cool. Galaxy 2 is just galaxy with less story

  1. When I read “cucco marks territory”, I thought it meant that they pooped or something. LOL!
    I always wondered why they’re called cuccos instead of chickens?

      1. afaik, Cuccos ARE chicken, they are refered some times as chickens but i think it’s the Hyrulean way to call them:
        From Zelda’s Wiki
        Cuccos are a recurring animal species in the Legend of Zelda series. These small domesticated birds are usually found in flocks in peaceful places such as villages, ranches, and castles. Despite the name “Cucco”, they are not related to the real cuckoo and are based on normal chickens. In fact, it could be said that “Cucco” is simply just the Hylian language’s word for chicken.

      2. Well, regular chickens don’t, you know, send thousands of their friends to make a swarm and kill you…so maybe they are abit different…

  2. It seems they’re taking a lot of things from Super Smash Flash 2. I don’t mind though. That game is awesome.

  3. now if only they had young link instead of toon link, young link’s move set would be much different, with all his masks using mask changes using down B and his final smash being fierce deity link that would be amazing but sadly no… most likely

  4. An assist would be AWESOME! I imagine it some what like Pit’s Final smash where they target every enemy in sight and just ram them as they all fly across the screen, clucking.

    1. Damage control!?
      Sonydrone trying to be smart, but can’t admit the truth!!!!!

  5. Those saying Cuccos are childish…have never attacked those deadly evil sharp taloned birds…

  6. I’m guessing that if you hit the cucco there will be a swarm of cuccos that attack the player
