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! It looks like Palutena takes the spotlight as today is a [Science Fiction] Double Feature, with both images featuring her!
Here’s what Sakurai had to say…
I talked about an attack with a far reach in yesterday’s post, but it didn’t compare to Palutena’s up smash attack! No joke, it reaches really far. It reached so far in this shot that even the rocketbarrels got blown up.
What is this, rise of the OP Smash Characters?!?! It seems that Palutena will definitely not be a watered down goddess… I would definitely hate to get on her bad side. If you thought the range in that move was impressive, wait until you see her next one, which definitely proves that she is worthy of the title goddess.
That said, if we’re talking just about range, even that can’t beat Palutena’s power, Heavenly Light. It has quite a damage field. However, this is a no-flinch attack, which means the opponents won’t react to the damage!
Super Smash Bros. is set to be released on the 13th September 2014 in Japan, 3rd October 2014 in Europe and North America, and a day later in Australia for 3DS. The Wii U version is set to be released during Q4 2014.
