For those of you who have been living under a rock 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 visual content for your eyeballs! Today, he shows off a screenshot involving the Mii Fighters, which were announced during E3 earlier this month.
Here’s what he had to say about the image today.
Some of the physical characteristics of Miis get carried over when you use them as Mii Fighters. The smaller ones become speed fighters and the bigger ones are more akin to power fighters
From this, it sounds like the Mii Fighter’s stats will change depending on the size of the Mii character being used. For example, a smaller Mii will move quicker but a larger Mii will serve more powerful attacks. A similar system can be seen in Mario Kart Wii and Mario Kart 8 where the class of the racer Mii is dependant on the size of the Mii.
