Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai has been on hand to divulge details on fan favourite fighter Charizard. While many of his daily Miiverse posts have reiterated details seen in the Smash Bros Direct, which was aired last month, some have displayed new details, albeit minuscule ones. In today’s post on Nintendo’s social networking channel, Sakurai has confirmed the much speculated Final Smash for Charizard – and, as expected, it’s Mega Charizard X.
Along with the confirmation, the game’s director has shown off Charizard’s new special attack, Flare Blitz, which can be seen in the Wii U screenshot above. When the move is used in Smash Bros a certain amount of recoil damage is taken, just the same as if you were to use the move in a Pokemon game. Here’s what Sakurai said in his Miiverse post:
“Here’s Charizard’s new special attack, Flare Blitz. It’s a very powerful attack–however, you’ll take recoil damage if you make contact. Pretty true to the original game, huh? Flare Blitz is Charizard’s side special move, and Rock Smash is the down special move.”
