This Week in Super Smash Bros.

1/24/14 - Livin' on the edge

How does the Spirit Tracks stage account for Toon Link being in the battle? Find out in this week's Smash Bros. roundup!

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, 1/20/14: Unknown Stage

Where am I……??  To be clear, the new Super Smash Bros. games do not feature a story mode like The Subspace Emissary.

Tuesday 1/21/14: Rosalina & Luma (Character mechanic)

This is the Luma Shot, which highlights the different ways to control your Luma. You can switch between controlling the Luma alongside Rosalina or away from her.

Wednesday, 1/22/14: Edge grabbing (Game mechanic change)

There are many changes being made to attack and defense options for grabbing edges. In this picture, Link is actually trumping Mario's grab.

Thursday, 1/23/14: Zelda, Rosalina & Luma / Kid Icarus Uprising stage (Random Screenshot)

This is definitely not a friendly girls night out…

Friday, 1/24/14: Spirit Tracks (Stage information)

When Toon Link joins the battle, Alfonzo is in charge of the train. Alfonzo: "Leave it to me!"

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?
