Marth And Link Cross Swords In These New Super Smash Bros. Screenshots

By Ishaan . November 18, 2013 . 9:00am

The latest Super Smash Bros. screenshots from the game’s official website are another assortment of random screens with no particular theme to them. The highlight of the screenshots—barring the Super Mario Galaxy stage reveal—is the screenshot of Marth and Link crossing swords.

    “I caught a Link! It’s as green as the field!” :D

  • J_Joestar

    c’mon Lucina Alternate costume >_<
    Still surprised we never got another Pokemon Rep yet considering XY's recent launch.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Bro. soon…

    • Elizabeth ‘Ely’ Moreno

      Well, Fire Emblem Awakening came out early in the year and until now we have the introduction of Marth with the publicity of the game at the bottom of the “bio”, so maybe its matter of time to get the XY rep.

    • Serge

      I know its impossible, but i really would like to see Lucina, Eirika or Lyndis in this game. I think we already have a lot of male FE characters in the roster. :)

      F.E. Awakening’s international 1-year anniversary is a few months away. Maybe we’ll get some related news for Smash Bros then. Hopefully some playable Severa; Final Smash: the legendary blade Tsuncalibur.
      (I am well aware she won’t make it in, but a boy in green can dream…)

      Right now it’s just nothing but veterans at this point. I don’t mind because Sakurai is playing it smart, leaving the actual newcomers for very last I hope.

  • Lynx


    For a minute you had me with “Cross Swords.”

    I thought we were going to be getting actual sword clashes but I guess the screenshot works fine too!

    • Pockystix

      how funny would it be if there were beam struggles? lol

      • British_Otaku

        I like Dragon Ball and all but struggles (beam ones especially) were almost always gimmicky trash that didn’t really have a place in the games. In story sequence, they are pretty cool, the chance that two people competitively will fire a special at the same time is pretty low otherwise and the chance that one person is just much better at breaking a controller than another is almost likely.

        Priority, range and super armour should be the deciding factor when attacks clash.

        I guess it would be funny though. >_>

        • Kamakuma

          … Have we been playing the same games? XD All jokes aside I’ll agree that its less common to get astruggle in the new games but back in BT3 those were the days. Where you had a legit chance to counter and blow them away. :’3

          But back on topic how would sword clashes work here? O30 This has my full attention now (even if its that of a wallnut.)

          • British_Otaku

            Most of the legitimate struggles even in BT3 were rush ones and beam-wise you are probably best off taunting your friend into a struggle then dodging their attack only to fire off something big… >_> If you can fire a special, you can probably jump, fly, dash and teleport.

            Sword clashes would definitely be priority based like when you see exchanges between Ike and Marth. Having the game come to a slump for a minigame wouldn’t be fun whether it is just two players or another two wait/join in/get a chance to take a cheap shot. Exact timing still has the attacks interrupt each like in previous Smash Bros and fighters.

            Everyone played all of the DB games back in the day,. :P Have you had a go at the only Detective Conan game that got localised?

          • Kamakuma

            Hmm yea that’s true it was easy to dodge and really the only time you dis get into a beam struggle it was on a whim sometimes I guess. XD But for me I’d always get into the dash struggles since when ever they tried to rush on me no one could beat me in spinning. XD

            And as for the DC game sadly I had forgotten it existed. @[email protected] I remember seeing so much about it then nothing… xD

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I would love it if. Zeal and Marth crossed swords…

  • Pockystix

    since the WiiFit trainer got an alt skin and voice, I’m hoping Lucina is an alt for Marth, and the female Villager is another alt too.

    • pressstart

      No female Villager would be the worst. Marth with a Marth alt would definitely be nice.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Can I just say how excited I am for the Mario Galaxy stage? Not so much for its appearance or the game it’s based on, but for how it toys with the core mechanics of the series. I love little twists like that, it keeps things fresh :3

    • Mavalex

      Im pretty interested in the Galaxy stage as well.
      The game had that planet with a hole that lead to the other side. Maybe they’ll have the stage be full circle (oh god imagine the camera) for that bit

  • Mavalex

    Dem slash outlines man

  • Chaos_Knight

    Ishaan/Siliconera……y u no post TODAY’S PIC ALSO?

  • Linhua

    … that’s a sexy shot there, sword boys.

  • Notquitesure?

    I hope Link gets a better B move, but do you think they’ll keep his final smash the way it is,(one of my favourites)
