Mega Man Learns To Dragon Punch In Super Smash Bros. Screenshots

By Ishaan . August 5, 2013 . 8:30am

Three of the latest batch of Super Smash Bros. screenshots feature Donkey Kong, one of them being from the lesser-seen Nintendo 3DS version of the game. (I’m personally fond of the scene with Pikachu perched on his head.) The highlight for most people, however, will probably be the shot of Mega Man attempting to dragon punch Mario.

    Oooh, looks like a Reset Bomb lands on the battlefield stage for Kid Icarus that we’ve seen in other screenies!

    • Ying

      I was wondering what that background was

    • Slayven19

      Crap, it looks like its gonna be a 3ds only stage :(. I was looking forward to playing that stage on consoles.

      • Raltrios

        I don’t have a Wii U, so I’m cool with that.

  • ReidHershel

    Tssh, dayuuuuuuuuuuum, look at that Donkey Kong model.

    • LustEnvy

      Looks like a pre-rendered model from a cutscene (intro?). If you look at the one with him and kid Icarus, it’s… not as good.

      Hmm, though looking at it again, it does look like it could be in-game.

      edit: The hate is strong here. I made a simple error, relax. I see that it’s the 3DS version…

      • Ying

        The one with him and Pit are from the 3DS one. The others are all from the Wii U which is why there is a difference in the quality of the sprites

        • LustEnvy

          True. I realized it too late.

  • Go2hell66

    They should give him a hadouken too

    • TheExile285

      nah… too OP

    • Niermyico

      Charge shot. :P

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    I remember X already could learn Shoryuken in X2 but man he was too OP

    • KuroNathan

      he could learn it in X through some minor tricky jumping, oneshots every enemy in the game including bosses but couldn’t be saved via password.

      Edit: Oops, I was thinking Hadoken. NEVERMIND!

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      He could learn the Shoryuken in the first X game, as well.

  • TheExile285

    Mega Man is gonna be my main.

  • Ultimaniacx4

    But Megaman has had the Shoryuken since Marvel vs Capcom.

    • AzureRyuujin

      Aye, as the Plasma Uppercut… actually I think he had that since Mega Man: The Power Fighters

      • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

        IIRC, it also got renamed as the “Mega Upper” in Marvel vs Capcom. But yeah, it was in The Power Fighters!

    • Guest

      Nope, he had it sine Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters (1996) then it reappeared again in MvC (1998).

      Notice the GFX trail is yellow. If it was blue, then it would be the MvC version.

      • Ultimaniacx4

        Thanks, I’ve seen that game in arcades but never actually played it. That’s even more to my point actually. The article title makes it seem brand new.

  • Spirit Macardi

    The background of that 3DS level looks like it’s taking place inside Giygas o_o;

    aww i want a pikachu and donkey kong game now

  • Just Tim

    Really? It’s as if SSB rendition of Classic Mega Man is based on his Marvel vs Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes moveset. :s

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      It is. Well, some of his moves are. Sakurai said as much in the E3 Dev video.

      • Just Tim

        At that rate, I won’t find it hard to believe if Classic Mega Man’s SSB4 ending involves Nemesis, killing him off just like how he did likewise to Brad Vickers.

        • Chaos_Knight

          Nope, Mega Man’s moveset is NOT based on MvC. His “Shoryuken” first appeared in Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters (1996) then it reappeared again in MvC (1998). Sakurai is staying true to the MM games.

          Notice his GFX trail is yellow. If it was blue, then it would be the MvC version.

          • Kingsnoke

            And even though it’s not Megaman X that’s in Smash, the Shoryuken appeared in X2 as a secret weapon. So various Megamen have been shoryukening before MvC.

          • J_Joestar

            X4 also has it as the charged version of the fire weapon IIRC.

  • Ying

    Aw the Pikachu and Donkey Kong one is adorable haha
    The way they are looking at the background makes it seem like one of those toy sets, and they are just thinking about buying it

  • DrakeClawfang

    I wonder what the Final Smash will be. Probably the Super Adapter transformation, but it’d be awesome if he turned into Mega Man X and all his attacks got supercharged.

  • Anime10121

    Megaman, being awesome like always :D

    Now wait a minute, didnt Sakurai say no cutscenes? Cuz that image with Pikachu sitting on Donkey Kong’s head looks like cutscene material to me…

    • Niermyico

      Probably a section of the OP of the game.

      • Anime10121

        NO! Leave my dreams alone :(

        • J_Joestar

          maybe he meant cutscenes as prerendered videos only and the game will instead use all in-game scenes? well i can hope can’t I?

  • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

    I will immediately try Mega Man as soon as I try this game for the first time.

    • doubleO7

      Why not try Mega Man before hand if you already know for sure you’re going to do it afterwards anyways?

      • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

        How would I do that? Like in a demo?

    • TheHolypopeofgaming

      what if he has to be unlocked?

      • http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/21421.html?type=4 Kashell

        Then I’m going to Game Shark the **** out of that game! ^_~

  • Samuel

    The Wii U version looks amazing, can’t wait till this comes out

  • AokiShizuku

    My Megaman strategy:

    MASH DP MASH DP MASH DP MASH DP.

  • anthony apduhan

    Look at Wii Fit Trainer lifting Donkey Kong what an amzaon! Or is she massaging him albeit different way.

  • Ali

    The WiiFit Trainer will be my main!! Anyone who can do somersaults in the heat of a battle is a-ok in my books!
