This Week in Super Smash Bros.

1/10/13 - King of the Rainbow Road

by Curtis Bonds - January 11, 2014, 11:15 am PST

Third week of royal revelations, as well as the reconfirmation of trophies in this week's Smash Bros. update!

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, 1/6/14: Trophies

Happy New Year!

Pic of the day. There will be trophies in the 3DS and Wii U games, and each version will boast different types and models. The 3DS trophies will be mainly from handhelds and the Wii U version will feature trophies from the home-console games.

Tuesday 1/7/14: Zelda (Character mechanic)

Zelda's strong side attack. It's a slash attack that utilizes her magic to make even a simple slash look sharp.

Wednesday, 1/8/14: The Ring (Stage mechanic)

The ropes surrounding the ring. You can actually use the stretchiness of the ropes to do a spring jump. However, you can't pull on them to launch yourself sideways in a lariat attack though.

Thursday, 1/9/14: Rainbow Road (Stage mechanic)

Watch out for the Shy Guys driving down Rainbow Road.

Friday, 1/10/14: King Dedede (Returning character)

Celebrating the launch of Kirby: Triple Deluxe in Japan, King Dedede joins the battle! Check out his evocative facial expressions on the official web site.

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?
