Veteran Fighter Meta Knight Confirmed For Super Smash Bros Wii U & 3DS

meta_knight_ssbSuper Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed Meta Knight’s return to the upcoming brawler in his daily Miiverse post. The veteran fighter – who has appeared in Super Smash Bros Melee as a collectible trophy and Brawl as a playable character – was teased by the director a couple of days ago, where a Mii fighter wore a Meta Knight mask. Clearly, Kirby’s rival-come-mentor wasn’t happy about his mini inclusion, deciding to reveal his awesome moves to eager Smash fans today. Here’s what Sakurai said on Miiverse:

“Pic of the day. ‘Looks like there was an impostor in the earlier posts, so I introduced him to my sword!’ …I’ll leave it up to your imagination if he really said that or not. The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!! We didn’t forget the Battleship Halberd either!!

“Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.”

We know Sakurai loves to tease or troll many fans, but he’s certainly came through on this character’s return. You can check out Meta Knight’s official page on the game’s updated website, here. Let us know if you’re happy about his return in the comment section below.

  1. From Sakurai:
    Meta Kinght’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.

  2. I was just checking miiverse this morning while I was still a bit sleepy (I’m in Europe) and I saw Meta Knight and I was like OOOOMMMGGGG YAY HES BACK!!!!! And then I saw that they probabply didn’t change him as much as I wanted and I was like…. Yea… Yaaay….. :/

    1. Never fix what isn’t broken :) I loved meta knight in Brawl, certainly his up special. Kicked many out with it xD

  3. Lame… Sakurai get your dick out of Meta Knight’s ass, damn pedo. Can we get a better character? Nope we get this reject of a broken character.

  4. Whatever happened to talking about the topic at hand on here? Apart from a few comments all I ever see is trolls arguing with each other.

  6. I’m happy for his return, but I really hope he is fixed this time.
    His domination in Smash Tournaments and overused status during the Brawl days must come to an end!
    Jokes aside, I really do hope they tweaked his mechanics as well as his entire moveset and not just the Shuttle Loop alone.

        1. Thanks for telling us that because now I will try to find a way to get you off topic in future articles. XD

          1. LOL, Challenge Accepted! XP
            Btw, I agree with you on his Neutral B. That was the most ludicrous move in online matches. It was so bad that people started nicknaming it “Mach Whorenado”.

  7. He was OP as heck in Brawl. I don’t really think he was even that strong, but he could hit you say too many times in rapid succession, is not even funny. Have you ever met someone that constantly spams the twister move or the standard A attack? BS! Makes me want to throw my freaking controller!

    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      I’ve met several of those idiots and every one of them got owned because they did nothing else which made them predictable…

      1. Commander you sound like you really know how to play smash bros. It makes me really excited to fight you, i enjoy playing against good fighters, no those cowards online that fight 3 on 1 or those noobs :/

      2. And you can always pick Link or Samus to counter them. I’d like to see them spam that move when I don’t even have to get in range of Meta Knight’s sword to grab their punk ass! lol

      1. The only other character that comes close to having the best Down Smash in the game alongside Meta Knight would be Pikachu. Although Meta Knight’s Down Smash outranges Pikachu’s by a long shot.
        Even his Foward Tilt is both fast and strong with a decent range.
        All in all, Meta Knight was a low risk high reward character during those days.

  8. I’m just wondering why he was revealed on wednesday? Could they be saving friday for Ganondorf with the hyrule warriors launch?

    1. If they do, let’s hope Sakurai has been working hard to make Ganondorf have a moveset similar to Hyurle Warriors’ Ganondorf.

  9. Told you guys in that last article lol, but he didn’t mention anything about him being Broken as hell in brawl so that worries me.

  10. Samurai shoving his characters down our throat again:

    Pit gets a new moveset, final smash, and moveset instantly.

    Kirby gets a new final smash instantly.

    King DDD gets remastered.

    Paulentena confirmed because THOUSANDS of fans asked for her /s. Just for that “girl count” Im not complaining about it being a girl, but couldnt they add someone else from a different franchise ?

    Magnus assist trophy instantly aftrr KIU it took two games for Dark Samus to appear…as an assist trophy since MP3.
    Meanwhile DK and Mario have the same mundane, lame final smashes.
    Sonic’s moveset still looks basic and weak compared to the Project M one that is actually influenced from Sonic Battle AND _Sonic platformers. Also what’s up with that old brunette Zelda from Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword was recently released? She could’ve had a new move set based on skyward sword. Toon Link also takes no pages from Windwaker or Phantom Hourglass to make him unique like Project M tried; he’s the same old Link clone with damage adjustment

    And finally, Meta Knight confirmed today…yay….

    1. I only agree with you on the Zelda part. I was hoping for Skyward Sword Zelda but Sakurai just had to give into the rabid Twilight Princess fanbase. :/

  11. Here’s how I hope he’ll play
    Can be KOd at 40%
    His opponent needs to be at at least 200% to be knocked out
    His moves have terrible priority
    Make him slower

    He still has to pay for the crimes he commited in Brawl.

    1. I’m guessing his smash attacks will be weaker or have less knockback. Also his special moves might either change or be tweaked a bit. I can own with Metaknight! Lol hugs!

      1. I’ve basically had the same though exactly, that way he’s much more balanced and less overpowered. Though I fear that Rosalina or Bowser may be the next “Meta Knight” of this gen.


        1. Bowser has gotten buffed a lot but he is still a big target, and speedy characters in the hands of good players would be able to beat him. Rosalina seems dependent on her lumas and she is a light character as well. My guess is Zero Suit Samus is the new “OP” character. *Hugs you back!*

  12. Meta Knight is the official FGN character of choice. That’s literally the only reason why he dominated the joke of a tier list.

  13. How do I feel? I’m confident that he’s been properly balanced this time. As I said before, Sakurai wouldn’t voluntarily repeat his own acknowledged failure.

  15. Finally a tease that Sakurai isn’t just using to troll people. Wish we could say the same for Ridley.

  20. 9. Attitudes can turn concerns into options. Someone by using a advantageous frame of mind sees a possibility in any disaster茂录艗 whereas a person who harbors negativity tends to see a disaster in any prospect. The secret is to make the very best of each circumstance. Beneficial persons reply within a advantageous technique to their instances茂录艗 whatsoever they could be.
