This Week in Super Smash Bros.

09/26/14 - Coordinate Your Hats with Flair

by Clay Johnson - September 26, 2014, 8:34 pm PDT

Sakurai tips his Master Hand, muses on the many hats of Miis, and shows off a brand new Wii U exclusive stage.

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, 09/22/14: Conquest Mode (3DS version)

Here are the results for Conquest mode for players in Japan that are playing the Japanese 3DS version. Their next challenge is to battle each other with fighters they've trained up and fighters made of metal!!

Tuesday, 09/23/14: Master Hand

Master Hand's glove rips open, and a mysterious substance we're calling the swarm, er, swarms out. The amount of this substance determines the shape of your final opponent, and you will have to launch it away in small clusters at a time. The higher your intensity, the denser the substance will be.

Wednesday, 09/24/14: PictoChat 2

PAC-MAN makes an appearance on the PictoChat 2 stage. We've included this as an element from Pac-Pix, which was released in 2005. It was quite revolutionary.

There are a lot of new elements in the PictoChat 2 stage. In this screenshot, it looks like there is depth to the stage…or like there isn't. The illusory nature of the drawing is meant to challenge your perspective.

Thursday, 09/25/14: Mii Fighters

We've prepared many hats for Mii Fighters...but a lot of them are humorously designed, so it might be hard to coordinate them with flair. You could, of course, choose to not wear the hats at all... It makes me wonder--how is everyone planning to dress up their Mii Fighters? Well, one thing is for sure: the ninja headband worn by the Mii in front should look good with anything.

Friday, 09/26/14: Gamer (New Wii U stage)

Here's a stage exclusive to the Wii U version: Gamer. Don't let Mom find you while you're duking it out!!

If Mom does spot you, she'll scold you and blow you away!! ...I've never seen a fighting action game as chaotic as this one.

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?
