Yes yes, I know, I keep neglecting the SmashShot of the Day, but never fear, I will ALWAYS return to save the day… mostly! Anywho…
For the past year, Smash Bros. Director, Masahiro Sakurai, has been showing off Smash Bros. glory by uploading a screenshot from the upcoming instalments for 3DS and Wii U nearly every day on Miiverse… that’s a whole lot of content for your eyeballs! Let us begin with yesterday’s SmashShot where a samurai from The Mysterious Murasame Castle will assist fighters when called upon!
I, Takamaru, have waited many years to appear in Super Smash Bros.! Link, Samus, Pit, and I debuted in the same year! Multidirectional Pinwheel Knife Rook Attack!! (FYI, I’m an Assist Trophy.)
It’s a new Assist Trophy confirmation. Though it may not seem like much, I’m pretty sure all those Nintendo boffins would know who he is. For those of you who do not know, he appeared in a Japan only game [until it’s Virtual Console release earlier this year] for the Famicom Disk System [or the Nintendo Entertainment System as it’s known in the west] called The Mysterious Murasame Castle. This was one of the earliest games for the system, released during the same year as The Legend of Zelda, Metroid and Kid Icarus.
And now for today!
For the first time ever in the Super Smash Bros. series, here’s a Paper Mario stage! It’s made of paper, so strong winds will blow it away.
A new stage, YAHOO! As Sakurai said, this will be the first stage based off the Paper Mario franchise in Super Smash Bros., though he also mentions that because the stage is made out of paper [which is a stupid decision I know] it could blow away with a strong enough wind! Sticker Star won’t be the only game from the franchise getting the spotlight…
Since the stage is paper, it transforms when it folds over and opens up again. This ship is the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
Yes, The Thousand-Year Door will also be featured in this stage. Hopefully this will mean other games may also feature, I wouldn’t mind seeing something from my favourite entry [I’m probably going to get a lot of hate for this], Super Paper Mario!
Super Smash Bros. is set to be released for 3DS on the 13th September 2014 in Japan, 3rd October 2014 in Europe and North America, and a day later in Australia. The Wii U version is set to be released during Q4 2014.
