This probably shouldn’t be much of a surprise for long term Super Smash Bros fans (given that he was a playable character in both Melee and Brawl and had roughly zero chance of being cut from the fourth game), but one of the new trailer confirms that Ganondorf is indeed back as a playable character.
Here’s a screenshot from the trailer proving it, with Ganon being just off screen:
See that small bubble to the right? Yep, that’s Ganondorf right there. No idea whether he has new attacks or anything (he’s never officially shown on screen in the video), but hey, it’s nice to at least confirm that he’s playable in the new Super Smash Bros game.
Are you happy to see Ganondorf return as a playable character?
Well, looks like quite a few interesting things have been happening today, at least as far as Nintendo goes. And to start off the list, we have Shulk’s official announcement as a newcomer in Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U.
For those who don’t know who he is, Shulk is the main character in the much acclaimed Xenoblade Chronicles title released on the Wii. A popular RPG brought to foreign shores after many petitions to Nintendo to bother to localise it, Xenoblade Chronicles became one of the most well loved new Nintendo titles and IPs of some time, and did extremely well. And so with both a port of Xenoblade and new installment Xenoblade Chronicles X coming to the Wii U, Shulk was deemed important enough to be added to Super Smash Bros.
Here’s the official trailer for his announcement:
But what do we think about this announcement? Well, if you want to find out, then keep reading…
On the official website, in a new section called ‘Music’.
But do you know what’s best of all here?
They actually use music from Mario & Luigi Dream Team! Yeah I know, this site really likes singing that game’s praises. But come on, it’s a game with a soundtrack that was just made to be remixed in Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U. Like this:
Or the tons of boss themes from the game itself that sound even better. After all, would anyone not like hearing Antasma’s battle theme remixed in the new Super Smash Bros title?
That aside, there are a bunch of other cool themes that are posted on there, so if you want to see the full list (and listen to them for yourself), click the link below and keep reading!
Or perhaps we should say ‘ex Nintendo of America employee’, since rumour has it that the leaker was fired from the company over it and that Nintendo actually plans to sue them, for some reason or another. It was apparently an internal leak, with the employee in question being responsible for sending copies of the game to the ERSB for rating.
They also say that while it’s possible we might see more from him (and that he somehow still has a copy of the game), that he might be less willing to post information online now that the company are looking to sue him for leaking information to the press.
But what do we think about it? Well, read on if you want to find out!
As well as quite a few other things which seem to back up the recent ‘leak’. These include Ganondorf still being a clone of Captain Falcon, a lack of Ridley and K Rool as playable characters and all kinds of other worrying things of a similar nature. Here are some videos showing what appears to be the new game, plus Bowser Jr’s playable role:
So what do I think of this? Is this real? Read on if you want find out!
Well, that’s what this video from GameExplain says. Apparently, Bonkers (a mini boss from the Kirby series), Kraid and a Kremling based boss from the Donkey Kong Country series will be present in the 3DS version’s Smash Run.
So what do I think? What Kremling will the Kremling boss be based on? Find out in the full post!
It’s not entirely new (about 90% of clips in the video are found in older videos of the game), but it does seem this trailer introduces some new content. So if you want to see a preview of a Steel Diver stage, the Animal Crossing Villager riding a gyroid like a DKC rocket barrel and very small parts of what seems like an adventure mode (not smash Run), watch the video below!
Yeah, take this with at least a grain of salt given that it’s a rumour related to Super Smash Bros 4, but apparently, a magazine given out at the World Hobby Fair (an event which is ending tomorrow and has is being held in Japan) indicates a new character is going to be revealed for the game. Here’s a picture of the magazine in question:
There’s apparently something there asking about a newcomer, one who isn’t listed on the page. And given that Nintendo is apparently present at this event, the chances that they’ll show something off at it are pretty good.
So yeah. We could be seeing a new Super Smash Bros 4 character revealed tomorrow. Hopefully someone decent like King K Rool.
Yeah, it’s quite the awkward name, isn’t it? I assume ‘Amiigo’ (a slightly more catchy and meaningful one) was already trademarked and Nintendo went for the next ‘best’ thing. Either way, here’s Nintendo’s entry into the Skylanders/Disney Infinity style NFC figurines market. What’s more, they’re planned to work with all kinds of different Nintendo titles, with figurines being shared across more games and systems! So if you want to know more, keep reading!
What’s more, it works with Super Smash Bros 4, giving those used to using the Gamecube controller in the last two installments something else to like about the next game. Here’s a picture:
So yes, if you’re like me and happened to use the Gamecube controller for the last couple of Smash Bros and Mario Kart titles, then it seems like Nintendo has you catered for with this useful accessory. (more…)
