Sakurai Confirms Charizard’s Final Smash In Latest Smash Bros Screenshot

charizard_x_smash_brosSuper 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.”



    1. Then you’re a fan of Y form which is basically Charizard 1.1, has the same weakness and lazy design.

      1. Charizard X is way better! He even has his move Flare Blitz! X looks like a super powered dark dragon with amazing blue fire. Even on his tail! Y just looks like Charizard grew an even bigger head and put on some spikes. XD

    2. How dare you mock Mega Charizard X of its form?! I for one think that this form is much more awesome than the Y Mega Form :P

  1. lol the downgrade the graphics again the wiiu cant handle Hd GRAPHICS #WeakTendo#Segtendo#GoToSleepNintendo#Exposed

    1. And what’s the point of coming to a Nintendo blog and trolling , did you get your rocks off? Last I checked video games were bought to be played not watched if I want to see realistic graphics I would go watch a movie. Get a grip.

      1. Bet you saw the Watchdogs videos below.

        You were saying about Wii U not handling HD? Well PS4 can’t either since 7-8 gen jump isn’t that different.

        Fail troll fails.

    1. Looks like he uploaded it at a low res, usually images like this are shown in 4k for news articles.

  2. If I remember right, the Final Smashes is something I never got to do very often in Brawl. The Final Smash ball rarely appears. And when it does, it’s hard to get. I remember wishing that Final Smashes could be achieved in a different way. In fact, I’m willing to bet that I never even seen every character’s Final Smash in Brawl.

    1. Did you set the items to “high”?…

      Because when I play it came like once every 2 minutes…

    2. I don’t remember much about what I did when I played. But I do know that I never played the multi-player modes.
