Zelda, Bachelor Pads And More In The Latest Super Smash Bros. Screenshots

“Zelda’s Din’s Fire is now stronger in its core,” Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai recently shared via Miiverse. “The farther it’s projected, the bigger and more powerful it will be, but you need to hit foes with the core if you want to make them fall.”


During last week’s Miiverse updates from Sakurai also showed off a stage in the Nintendo 3DS version of the game, which Miiverse users are speculating is from Tomodachi Collection. Sakurai wrote: “Looks like someone’s enjoying the bachelor life in this pad.”

    A Nintendo Banchou making a dirty joke, now I have seen it everything…

      How is that dirty in the least? there weren’t balled up tissues all over the floor. ’cause if so THEN that’d be dirty.

    I wonder if captain rainbow will appear

    I was worried that Din’s fire had been removed after seeing that phantom attack which looked like it could be a sideways special, so glad my favourite move is still in it!

    Beware the Din’s Fire spammers online even more.

    Din’s Fire… I can’t tell if this means that it’s been nerfed so it only does decent damage and knockback if you hit it with the core, or that it’s been buffed to have a meteor effect at the core… o:

    • Ixbran

      Its been buffed even more so. It wasn’t mentioned here, but the size of the explosion gets bigger the further it travels before exploding. People theorize that at its largest, the center might have a meteor effect.

      So Din’s fire would be very dangerous when used against people who are on the opposite edge of the stage from Zelda.

        Excellent. Hopefully Zelda isn’t bottom tier again, then xD I really enjoy her playstyle, but the game engine just works against her :c

        • Ixbran

          I could really care less about tier’s. This game isn’t meant to be a competitive fighter, its supposed to be a Party-Game/Fighter Hybrid.

          Zelda/Sheik, Peach, and Marth are my top 3 in Brawl, and they were my top three in Melee as well. I don’t care who’s the highest or lowest tier since I play the game for fun, not for competition.

          Regardless if shes Top Tier, Mid, or bottom, I will still enjoy playing as her.

            But those 2 aren’t mutually exclusive since competition is fun. That said you may not care for tiers but you most certainly want the game to be on an even playing field between characters.

            Not caring about tiers won’t stop people who are good with a cheap character(metaknight) from having the advantage against the majority of characters you play. At that point it wouldn’t really be fun because you wouldn’t be able to win.

          • KoRLumen

            It’s not like I said I didn’t have fun with her… She was one of my favourite characters to use. It’s just that her playstyle and Melee and Brawl’s game engines work against her capabilities. I bring her out from time to time for friendlies and casuals, but I’ve never been able to make her work in a more competitive setting. As Slayven19 says, I also want each character on an even playing field – but anyone can see that Zelda is severely disadvantaged against a majority of the cast.

            And I think you’re misunderstanding the tier list. It doesn’t dictate which character you should play as – it simply states which characters have more advantages over others. That’s why they can change as the metagame is developed. It’s like the laws of sciences. They aren’t laws so much as they are observations that seem to hold true after repetitive, exhaustive testing – yet they remain disprovable. It’s just that the burden of proof lies on the one trying to disprove it.

            What I want isn’t something as shallow as status on a hierarchy. It’s what’s behind that move. It’s not the “what,” it’s the “how.” I have always enjoyed Zelda, and I think she deserves better.

            And come on, I get you’re trying to be diplomatic, but as soon as you include any sort of competition into a game, it makes it competitive whether it was meant to be or not. I play Mario Party competitively, for example. Does it make it any less of a party game? Of course not! Do I still enjoy it? Obviously!

    This game is shaping up to be the best Smash Bros since the last Smash Bros!

    I am amused by the sight of DK’s bugging eyes. Less amused by Trainer being caught in Villagers merry mansion of murder. It’s like watching a horror movie and screaming at the victim to GET OUT DON’T FOLLOW HIM IN CAN’T YOU HEAR THE SCARY MUSIC CHORDS but it is all for naught.
