Cuccos And Andross Make An Appearance In Super Smash Bros. Screenshots

Last week’s round of Super Smash Bros. screenshots included Cuccos from Zelda, an item from Kid Icarus: Uprising, and an appearance by Star Fox’s Andross.


“Never bully Cuccos,” director Masahiro Sakurai wrote on Miiverse. “Seriously, attacking them is out of the question! This has always been a cardinal rule of The Legend of Zelda series.”

    There was an inscription on the grave.
    “Here Lies Link”
    The chickens danced upon the tombstone as they cackled.

      Final Fantasy I ?
      Wonder why they didn’t actually think of this joke when remaking it for the GBA.

  • Fitzkrieg

    Cool, a Lumiose City stage.

  • Dianatos

    What in the world is in Sonic’s hand?

    • Chaos_Knight

      The Ore Club from Kid Icarus: Uprising.

      • Dianatos

        Thank you. I still need to play that.

        • Chaos_Knight

          You should. I guarantee you it is worth it.

  • Chaos_Knight

    OK EVERYONE. Before we say “Aahhhh cuccos are gonna kill us! We’re doomed!”

    What if Sakurai is trolling us (again) and the cuccos act like this? In TP, if you attack it enough you control the cucco and Link stands still. Therefore, if it works like this, your character is wide open for attack because you’re controlling the cucco instead.

    • Göran Isacson

      That would be even more terribly entertaining: like, one person attacks the cuccoos, suddenly they are a cuccoo BUT their character is just standing around, open to be attacked by everyone, and they have to fly around and defend themselves as a cuccoo. Que EVERYONE scrambling away from a cuccoo whenever one shows up.

    • But that’s not the Chicken variant. That’s the Hen/Rooster/**** variant.

      • Arrei

        This Cucco is modeled like the TP hens and roosters, but colored in a Skyward Sword style, like Link and Zelda are.

        • Sure, but it won’t be doing what the TP Cuccos did. White Cuccos are hellspawns. And no matter if they have a Rooster crest or not, they will call for a legion.

  • NightzeroAX

    Dat old school andross tho.

  • Ishaan, there are more images in the Miiverse post about the Pokemon stage. You should post those, too.

  • anthony apduhan

    New Final Smash that replaces Negative Zone or what?

    • Today’s image. Here’s the tagline: Luigi might be thinking, “Who would’ve thought I’d get to show off the Poltergust in Super Smash Bros.?!” Wondering if it’s going to suck something in? Yeah, it probably will.

  • WARNING: If Sakurai really likes to troll us, do NOT believe any big news tomorrow. Why? It’s April Fools Day tomorrow. :P

  • Raltrios

    Ooh! The Ore Club is a smash weapon now? I wonder what else in Pit’s arsenal we’ll be able to use?
