Nintendo have released screenshots of Punch-Out!!’s Little Mac in the new Super Smash Bros. game. Mac was revealed as a playable character earlier today. You can watch him in action here.
Cant wait to get my rematch with donkey kong
thats what i was thinking! But Mac is going after everyone: women, children, men, animals, fat guys, kirby, pokemon, and even god of the universe!
No, I think he meant Rosalina…
Alas, even Megaman who already suffered a lot with what’s currently happening to his franchise recently.
… LOL… I like how you put Kirby into his own category. XD
Poor DK’s about to get a second serving of Little Mac in this game.
But if he loses, DK will kidnap him.
I have to say, I wasn’t very excited for this guy or his reveal, but…
Watching him play, he looks really fun. His moveset is VERY well done.
By Street Fighter standards, is he closer to Dudley or Boxer (Balrog in the USA/”Mike” Bison in Japan)?
He’s more of an in fighter. So in that regard he’s very similar to Balrog/Boxer. However he’s honorable and more respectful than Balrog. So he’s like both of them in a sense
Dudley more so than balrog.
Don’t get me wrong he’s got shades of both, but TBH most of balrog’s uniqueness comes from “i’m gonna dash across the screen and hit him real hard in different directions maybe. toss in a headbutt here and there”
dudley however can also quickly cross the screen and has slightly more aerial ability than balrog with his Jet Upper. with his short swing blow dodge move, ducking, rapid fire machine gun blow, and cross counter, Little Mac might need a few roses in the ring for his sore losers
“Little Mac Gets His First Screenshots From Super Smash Bros.”
and his 3rd one is hilariously awkward XD
talk about guts he aims right for the villager’s face!
lol i dont know why the sonic one makes me laugh so much
Anybody else impressed by the second to last screenshot, looking good 3DS (⌐■_■)
Now to wait for Diddy Kong… Since a Japanese Release of DK Tropical Freeze reveals a new character
Maybe US release
Too late for that. It was released today in Japan.
Give it a week + 1 day for NA.
If only Diddy and Dixie were a team…
From Assist Trophy to Playable Character Little Mac deserves it…
Now, if only Isaac, Saki and Ray MK III would follow :)
Lyndis too :D
Hmmm… I wouldn’t get my hopes up for another Fire Emblem character. We would be lucky to get Ike back… if Chrom doesn’t take his place, like Ike took Roy’s place.
I need her. Marth can go home
I hope we get Issac/Felix(as a costume), and Sveta,Alex a assist trophies, also hope we get Shulk, Hades,Palutena, Chrom(lance user) Gerome/Vaike(axe user) Bayonetta and a redone Ganondorf
Hooded My unit would be rad too with Extra Wonder Red
this is the first post i’ve ever seen with shulk in it that i like, by nature of most everyone else you’ve listed, though Hector is most worthy in recent years, sorry it’s true. LORD STATUS.
but Hades and Palutena?
TBH from the fan outcry alone I would be surprised if he wasn’t an assist. but i would be shocked if he was playable
We need an animal transformer in Smash.
Sveta,Tiki,Panne. I dont care who it is.
Long as its not Nowi
this is where we get back to the real true root of the issue.
We need a Fire Emblem only Smash.
Fucking yes (Add Nintendo’s 10+ rpg franchises to it too)
Also I want SMT x FE to come out and scar the shit out of Natural Doctrine with its epicness
i really hope when that comes out it won’t be dripping of persona. i’ve had enough of school between my teens, anime and games these days. pass. but good old fashions SMT!? of course
also a Fire Emblem Musou.
that’s super cool for people who want them. i’ve never much liked those games. not to detract from that, but going by the sub genre numbers, it’s much more likelier to happen to happen. there’s 3-4 official smash games, and maybe ten in total counting all of the clones of varying quality. then there are what like 50 or so musou games across every publisher? sengoku, dynasty, samurai, hokuto, gundam…
i’m not one for the mindless slaughter genre. i’ll take the demanding stylish action of a DMC or Ninja Gaiden. but besides that, wouldn’t it betray the nature of fire emblem as a musou game? you tend to just run through legions of enemies like a force of nature, which is quite not the nature of fire emblem, where you will die [if you play reckless]
but… but… Smash needs a loli to get the otaku crowds!
Smash already had otaku crowds.
Smash Bros Brawl got them
and that’s more than the otaku deserve.
if you don’t mind my asking, i hadn’t thought of other nintendo RPG’s but upon second thought i could see some being a perfect fit as guest characters. Fire Emblem as the Main focus with characters of the Golden Sun Universe fitting in well. but from Mother? I dunno. and being RPGs on display a decent story mode in the vein of subspace is best, BUT SO NOT SUBSPACE. nowhere near as long, and rangled in abit. seriously that was all over the place. that is the only section of a Fire Emblem smash that should have any RPG influences; single player only. different weapons with effects. outside of that, equipping a killer edge or an iron sword in multiplayer should be strictly cosmetic. and every entry, class, weapon, generation represented
Nintendo has random rpgs all around. Soma bringer, baten kaitos(acquired ip) glory of heracles,advance wars,(co owns takt of magic) The last Story,Pandora’s Tower(Yay castlevania lmao), all sorts of random stuff
And weird crap like Odama and Custom robo, battallion wars, the visual novel games they own, and their horror franchises ( they co own fatal frame,but they got some others like eternal darkness and that other one)
I’m pleasantly surprised by this. I see so much Fist of the North Star/ Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure in him. May possibly be my main if a second Fire Emblem character isn’t announced
No Hajime no Ippo? D:
Very Hajime but the art style of the video that showed his reveal looked so much like the new Jojo Series of last year. I wouldn’t be surprised if it were the same guys who did it.
he should have a dempsy roll.
I would’ve been so hype if he did.
Oh damn that sick
…did they say sonic was in?
If you mean in Smash 4 then yes, he was announced quite a while ago.
If Ike doean’t return or get a suitable replacement (Fairly likely) then I will welcome Little mac as my new main.
I hope Chrom uses a lance instead of sword
Uses falchion as a back up for his down B maybe? Dunno
Why chrom? No love for any of the older FE characters for dare I say OG Lanceman? I rather like Ephraim even though he’s old. Not as old as a certain blue haired swordsMARTHman. granted he’s not the staple either but still why not?
probably because they are more likely to use the lead from the newest game as the second FE rep than older ones that aren’t Marth.
oh i’m aware of that. there’s is little point to fighting desperately against the smash trends. sadly most things are simply the way they are and most signs point to chrom being the most likely based on patterns of the past.
i was asking more specifically why laer would prefer Chrom with a lance over any other primary lance wielding lord. Albeit some of them are older and most people have gotten the clue since brawl there will always be at least Marth and the latest lead, but some hold out hope for more. and true dreamers wish against the universe’s law that 3 or more will appear, all brand new from different periods in the franchises lifetime equally representing fire emblem as more than blue haired swordsman, sort of how like Mario, Zelda, and Kirby franchises let you play as the Damsel and the Villain as well.
This was the only character I really wanted to see in Smash Bros. really damn happy about this. I don’t care who gets announced after this.
Little Mac believes in gender equality
The Fist of Justice are uni-sexed.
Just like the hammer?
Hope there’s a stage modeled as a boxing ring with this guy now as one of the roster.
…Uh, I think that boxing ring is his stage, actually.
Ooops~! My bad. I think I may need to start wearing glasses.
You do see the ring that he’s in with villager right?
..Yes. I think my eyesight’s starting to budge or something…
Even though this is cool and excited, I feel like he’s going to replace Capt. Falcon. . .
The original cast isn’t going anywhere. Newcomers get trailers. Old timers will continue to get reveals via the Smash site. I wouldn’t worry about Ness, Jigglypuff, Capt. Falcon, etc.
Yeah, he just looked so similar for a second there. But I do feel that Falcon is classic enough to be kept and it’d be weird at this point to get rid of an original character.
Captain Falcon is already revealed. Sakurai talked about Ice Climbers and Captain Falcon’s gameplay.
Oh, really!? Do you remember when that was? Because I love using both and I am sweating a little here, even if I don’t need to be.
He talked about captain falcon when he spoke about the games balance and character attributes.
He specifically mentioned that captain falcon is balanced more so that single player he’s a little vulnerable but in 4 man multi his falcon punch for instance has wide AOE so he does better in mutli
Falcon needs a new game. Period. He can either race or hunt down Bounties like Spike S. or Space Dandy, but he’s got no where near enough under his belt and it’s a shame. Seriously i’m beginning to thing that Hip Blaster is just for show.
Agreed so much. I mean, I think F-Zero deserves a new game and Falcon does as well, so they might as well do it! It’d be real nice to have a bounty hunting game with him though.
Mach Rider to Replace the Captain!
In all seriousness it’s looking like little mac is most likely and dare i say best for the job. there’s also that pesky issue of relevance
He almost seems too powerful as a character. He can dash through projectiles, counter other characters’ moves and his KO move after building his special meter seems to result in an instant KO of enemies or at least do massive damage. Even crazier, he has ARMOR that seems to absorb some attacks. Pretty nuts. I guess his upper attack special doesn’t give him horizontal range in edge fighting though.
I guess Sakurai’s plan is to have everyone be broken this time around
It worked for ST… it worked for Melee…
It is important to remember that we don’t know what charges the meter yet. It could be like in Super Punch Out where you do more damage as attack and less when you are hit. Or it could be as boring as a simple charge, which is easy to avoid/counter. In either scenario, it probably does not have the potential to be game breaking imo.
Also avoidance and super armor moves are great but they still require much skill to be put to good use. Just because I know how to use Akihiko’s duck and weave moves doesn’t mean I can use them “properly”.
he’ll be a lightweight character, and there is the issue of him without a doubt lacking an air game, coach even mentions it in the trailer. air smash bros is all about the air game more so than anything else most would argue
Nice, he really is fited for this game, know they need to put the urban champion, he also could be fit in this game, and Isaac from golden sun, and a characters from sin and punishment too!
BTW, is it just me, or little mac looks better in cell shade? there is just something in his face in wii U that makes him look… lika a muscle head?
I’m hoping Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles is playable in the next Smash Bros.
I hope he isn’t. I just wanted to share that. Is that allowed without being looked at as a bad person. I do mean no offense by it.
I agree, we have enough sword wielders. Need more interesting fighters.
If you think they couldn’t make an interesting character out of shulk beacuse he is a sword wielder, you obviously need to play Xenoblade,
Finally a character reveal that actually makes sense.
Sonic: “Ha! Face to fist style, how do you like it?”
lulz that kung pow~
