This Week in Super Smash Bros.

12/6/13 - I'm Sure Skull Kid Will Turnip Eventually

by Curtis Bonds - December 6, 2013, 4:28 pm PST

Skull Kid gets announced as an Assist Trophy, Find Mii stage, and more!

Welcome to This Week in Super Smash Bros., our weekly recap of the various updates, images, and information regarding the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games for Wii U and 3DS. Here's a look at what the game's creator, Masahiro Sakurai, shared with us this week, along with his comments.

Monday, 12/2/13: Turnips (Villager)

Turnips are used in the Villager's up-air and down-air attacks. Perhaps because the turnip prices fluctuate depending on the day's market, the number of turnips that appear changes every time. How cute.

Tuesday 12/3/13: Find Mii (Stage)

Pop quiz! Who is this monster, and where is it from? The cage may serve as a hint.

Wednesday, 12/4/13: WiiFit Trainer, Sonic, Mega Man (Random Screenshot)

Excuse me, sir--a little help with the ball? There was once a game called Mega Man Soccer, by the way.

Thursday, 12/5/13: Lloid Rocket (Villager)

The Villager's special attack, the Lloid Rocket, is a projectile weapon like no other--you can either launch it or ride on it. When you fire it off, keep pressing the button to hop aboard--you can even control its speed. It's more powerful when you're riding it.

Friday, 12/6/13: Skull Kid (Assist Trophy)

Here's a new Assist Trophy--the Skull Kid! I repeat, it's an Assist Trophy, not a new fighter. The characters announced on the website are the fighters!

Good job Curtis.  :) Looks like this will be a great addition to the site.

I like this week ending review for these pictures. It will allow me to dissect and predict Sakuria's actions in one convenient spot.

As a huge fan of Majora's Mask I'm a little disappointed that Skull Kid isn't a playable character. In a similar fashion to Pokémon trainer, it might have been cool to see Skull Kid utilise the three transformations from Majora's Mask and to have them act as fighting stances.

Ah well. I'm just grateful that A Link Between Worlds and now Smash are acknowledging the existence of Majora's Mask. It gives me some hope that we'll eventually get that 3DS remake, and eventually a direct sequel (although I highly doubt the latter).

Need Lucario, Zoroark and Magnus (from Kid Icarus)

"Princess Rosalina & Lum"? First off, it's Luma. Secondly, Rosalina has never been established as being a princess.

Rosalina is a Galactic Queen. A hell of a classy one too.

Give me a break. Classy? You do know they're not real right?
