For Glory, Super Smash Bros. Screenshots Of Greninja, Charizard, Zero Suit Samus, Yoshi, And Sheik

By Spencer . April 8, 2014 . 4:46pm

Here’s the quick bits from the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct:

Super Smash Bros. will come out for Nintendo 3DS in summer 2014. The Wii U version is scheduled for winter 2014. The roster will be the same in the two games, but the stages and music choices will be different. Stages have bosses like the Yellow Devil from the Mega Man series.


Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS will run at 60 frames per second in 3D, but some assist trophies will be in 30 frames per second. 3DS will also have an exclusive Smash Run mode which starts with a five minute dungeon run where you collect powerups.


There are two modes for online play, For Fun and For Glory. For Glory sounds like it’s designed for tournaments since it has no items, only has Final Destination as a stage, and records wins/losses.


Greninja from Pokemon X and Pokemon Y is a new playable character.

Charizard is on its own as a playable character.

Zero Suit Samus, Shiek, and Yoshi are returning characters.

Here’s a bunch of other characters like Elec Man from Mega Man confirmed as assist trophies.

  • DragKudo

    Samus has a new outfit? New metroid in the making?

    • lunier

      Isn’t that just other m with weird yellow trims on the heels and wrists?

      • DragKudo

        I never play other m

    • Chaos_Knight

      No. It’s based on her appearance in Other: M.

    • subsamuel01

      Old outfit, she had it in Brawl and Metroid other M. All they did this time was make a separate character from regular Samus.

      • David García Abril

        Actually, she has had that outfit ever since “Metroid Prime 2” (Or was it “Metroid Zero Missions”? I don’t remember which of the two came out first exactly)

        • DragKudo

          The design is different. Zero mission zero suit didn’t have the dark parts.

          • David García Abril

            Oh, come on, you know what I mean!

  • TheGioG

    How a single Nintendo Direct could both kill me from fatal hype build-up AND bring me back to life is beyond me. Welcome back to Smash Bros, old veteran friends. Welcome to the fight, Greninja.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      the hype train is still chugging along

    • PreyMantis

      The fact that it’s still not over, yet, still kills me little by little.

      • Slayven19

        Its not over yet?

        • PreyMantis

          There’s only 29 characters shown so far, few stages, and pretty sure not even half the actual modes (following Brawl’s number of modes) in the game.

          • Slayven19

            Oh, I thought you meant there’s another direct or something coming today or tomorrow.

        • domonkun

          I think he means the hype train, not the actual Nintendo Direct.

    • Ric Vazquez

      LOL you are not the only one

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Zero suit samus must have learned from Bayonetta and C, Viper

    • ZSS’s heels look a heck of a lot like Bayonetta’s. I like the new Zero Suit. It’s much more intricate than the one in Brawl or Metroid: Other M.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        I like it as well -Should use that in future games-

      • Kaetsu

        Yeah at this point they would only need to do some re-skinning and BOOM! Bayonetta.

  • Natat

    ZSS looking great, might sub her in this one.

  • DragKudo


    oh shit look at that mega mens ahhhh oioh wafcsndjfasbvlkafbcSDKFnaxKFJXBC I cant hold this excvitement fcosiudzbfclkSNXCxSZ

  • Kari

    Shiek looks like a boy..

    • The Watcher

      I still think he his

    • Suicunesol

      Yeah, he looked more androgynous in the previous games. He looks a tiny bit more masculine here…

      • David García Abril

        It’s the chest and hips.

        In “Brawl” the chest area definitely looked more like boobs (small ones, but still).

        Here, they look more like male pecs.

        Also, the hips are less pronounced this time around.

        I don’t mind this change, but if they really wanted to make Sheik look male-like, I think they should have used the design from “Ocarina of Time”.

        I liked to think that Brawl-Sheik was just Zelda wearing a combat outfit without any gender bending shenanigans.

  • DragKudo


  • xavier axol

    hearing that charizard is in the roaster has now seal the deal, wii u here I come!. wii u now have the most impressive line up out of any console with no help of third party. I will look forward to bayonetta 2, X, super smash brothers (all hail king…charizard!, my lord and savior), and the crossover title shin megami tensei x fire emblem.

    • God

      Let’s hope they don’t give him a crappy moveset again, i mean, WHO THE HELL ROCK SMASH TO A CHARIZARD?! Not to mention flamethrower and fire spin (?) being awful and mostly worthless due to being so incredibly slow.

  • Suicunesol

    I’m starting to wonder whether Jigglypuff will return when we’ve already got 4 confirmed Pokemon fighters. I think Mewtwo could (and should) still return.

    • ronin4life

      I don’t see Mewtwo returning at this point, and wouldn’t want to see him now anyway.

      Too much poke’mon…@[email protected];;;

      • Suicunesol

        Yeah, but Mewtwo is more relevant than Jigglypuff because of his recent Mega Evolution. Jigglypuff is just a cute Pokemon that looks like Kirby. If we had both Jigglypuff and Mewtwo join, that would make 6 Pokemon. I know it’s Pokemon, but six is still a lot.

      • Ixbran

        Same. I don’t think they will cut Jigglypuff, since she’s one of the Original 12. Not to mention shes now a Normal/Fairy Type in GenVI, she has an opportunity at having a major move set overhaul. Where as with mew two, eh?

        You could argue that Mega Evolutions make it more interesting, but we’ve been shown that Charizard and Lucario can use their Mega Evolutions as well. So really Mewtwo wouldnt be all that unique because of this.

    • BlakShiranui

      I’m hoping we get our Jiggly. We’ve just gotta have the original 12 back for the 4th game!

  • DragKudo

    Come on Please put Jack frost, Bayonetta, and Mewtwo in

    • NTaiyokun

      The ZS Samus could technically count as Bayonetta you know…

      • DragKudo

        Yeah but i wan the real bayonetta.

        • The Watcher

          Bayonetta is too sexual for a kids game

          • DragKudo

            I’m getting real tired of this excuse. 1. this is a T for teen game. 2. Bayonetta is seductive and that’s only in her game. They can keep her flirts, and innuendos that “kids” won’t get. Hell she doesn’t have to talk or she can talk in Japanese or Enochian. Samus and Snake were too sexualized for SSB but they still put them in the game. You can see princess peache’s panties. ramble

          • The Watcher

            If you’re lucky, you may see her as a assist trophy. I’ll give you that.

          • DragKudo

            I’d be fine with that, Cheshire.

    • xavier axol

      I second that!, jack frost, bayonetta, and may be ice climbers.

      • DragKudo

        ah man i forgot them I hope they get in, also where’s CAPTAIN FALCON?

        • xavier axol

          sure why not, I’m not a big fan of captain falcon. but the more the merrier, I always say. and I know there’re other Nintendo ip characters long forgotten that I would love to see.

        • PreyMantis

          Cpt. Falcon is most likely an unlockable character.

    • Kaetsu
    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Jack frost would be amazing! Bayonetta would also but they would most likely change the heck out her move set so she wont show any skin since her outfit is made out of her hair

      • DragKudo

        All they would have to do is not make her clothes come off.

  • KuroNathan

    Does anyone else think charizard’s roar is weird? I’m almost certaint hey changed it.

  • Ixbran
  • NightzeroAX

    Need Issac or Felix from Golden Sun.


    • MagiusNecros

      Something tells me not showing the Isaac assist is pretty telling. I wager Matthew is a viable contender. I would love Isaac though or any GS character.

    • ronin4life

      I have been saying Issac should be in forever myself…>.>

      I don’t think that will ever happen though…T.T

    • God

      Still no Captain Falcon… God is worried… Shit is gonna hit the fan soon if you don’t give me Captain Falcon. They also need to announce another Fire Emblem character. Nothing will happen, if they don’t, but some developers MIGHT get their lives extended if Shulk appears.

      • Still no Mother series characters yet too…
        *fetal position*

        • DuskSharkEX

          I want Lucas back…or Ness with some of Lucas’ versions of the PSI spells.

          • I’d prefer both back but my bias wants at least Ness back.

            And wouldn’t mind to have Flint or the Masked Man in this too.

      • NightzeroAX

        I know for a fact that Sakurai wouldn’t leave Captain Falcon out. I can’t imagine him doing so.

        • God

          I can… I mean, they already stated their lack of interest in ever making a new F-Zero…

  • daaww yoshi is so cute
    these look great especially ZZS

  • AW YEAAH! My fav oldest and newest starter are on it!

  • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

    Bunny Girl Samus!!!!!
    Me: Approved!

    • AuraGuyChris

      Dedede: Heheheh, look, Luigi. A Bunny Girl!
      Samus: Sakurai!

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Bayonetta skin for ZSS, lol!

  • Edzo04

    gotta say zero suit samus looks unbelievably gorgeous

  • gulabjamal

    With rumors of Shulk being included, imagine if the final character reveal was…………………….. BAYONETTA. 0___0

  • Ardus

    Wow the changes look great shiek looks so fun to play. this might very well be the best smash bros yet.

  • DarthSithZero

    Damn Samus looks superhot this time with that thight body of her , with those firm breasts and those heels.I see some FANSERVICE there.

  • *Spits coffee*
    Megaman’s Final Smash is WHAT!? :DDDD

    • E.T.993

      I cried when I saw Volnutt in it.A LOT.

  • SirRichard

    Despite being entirely about Smash, I wasn’t too optimistic for this Direct when going into it.

    And then it just kept getting better and better, minor roadbump of the Wii U release aside. Hope we get proper release dates at E3!

  • J_Joestar

    I need to get that Substitute Doll!

  • Dianatos

    The thing that made me scream in joy: Dat Final Destiination. Such pretty. Much lava. Cosmos. Wow.

  • Jettythesunfish

    I’ll be blunt Greninja isn’t my favorite water-starter design wise. But it’s appearance in Smash Bros. was a great surprise! I may actually try using it!

  • Kornelious

    Still hoping for my two most-wanted characters to enter the ring…….Yup, any time now :P

  • SetzerGabbiani

    For Glory! = Insta meme

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Lol…..that Zero Suit Samus is……. Highly Acceptable lol.^_^

  • Zer0faith

    I could have gone without seeing this you know. Now it will forever haunt me.

    • TalesOfBS

      Our minds are too dirty.

      • Suicunesol

        Then out of Yoshi’s eggs come wee Charmanders…

    • J_Joestar

      Dragon Egg Group?

  • Surgeon of Death

    I have two Greninjas. One is named FrogNinja and the other(Shiny) is named Jiraiya. It’s one badass pokemon and my stater of choice. Really excited for this addition to Smash Bros.

    • Tincho Kudos

      Jiraiya as of Yosuke’s Persona in P4?

      • Surgeon of Death

        From naruto. But there’s that too :)

  • Aspenharls

    So uhhhh, is it just me, or are Samus’ breasts bigger?

  • Makoto Yuki

    Dat Pikachu face…. lol

  • Ben Sylvia

    The 3DS version only having 2 songs for each stage kinda killed me a little on the inside.

    But the Smash Run mode being inspired by City Trial from Kirby Air Ride brought it back to life.

    Gonna play the HELL out of that.

  • Vash bane

    some of the stuff that was shown was hilarious like luigi running away in fear of giga mac or donkey kong stealing Rosalina while her star is away. and my favorite lol marth running from the bomb

    hm I guessed I should have expected that charizard would have its x mega….i’m not complaining its just that I was kind of hoping since it has 2 that it would get both (like have it activate under certain conditions or something) the custom is indeed interesting I can easily see a lot players tinkering with it and making all kinds of vids on youtube.

    • J_Joestar

      It would be interesting if the Custom moves allowed you to switch Charizard X for Y.

  • Prinny Dood

    Is it just me or did samus get bustier dood!?

  • Tonton Ramos

    What have I done… I’m sorry Siliconera… I’m sorry Sakurai and Nintendo… SORRY!

  • FreeLancers

    New pokemon stage base on the dragon type elite four. Scene during greninja cutscenes only one time.

  • David García Abril

    High heels…

    Why did it have to be high heels?…

  • Samus is looking waaay sexy on the Wii U :)

  • Göran Isacson

    Ha ha oh man. A lot to summarize here, but if one were to try…

    I can’t say I’m that hyped about Sheik and Zero Suit Samus, mostly because I feel like their slots could have been used by new characters. Like, the Wii trainer may have had no fanbase at all until she appeared here, but at least she was someone new. I kinda dug that, a character in the Game & Watch vein. But these… these aren’t even new. I would’ve much preferred playable Midna and Palutena. Oh well. At least I have something to amuse me with: this will make the moronic Zelda fanbase wars over whether Sheik is a separate character or a disguise of Zeldas flame up all over again. Can you hear the fujoshi sing? Singing the songs of “NO VAGINAS ALLOWED”? It is the music of a people that Sakurai wants to see rise again, for his black heart secretly thrills every time they do.

    That aside, Greninja and Charizard! Yeah that’s cool I guess. Never been a big fan of the playable Pokemon to be honest, but they exist and I’m not gonna disparage their fans. They could at least bring new moves into play, possibly.

    Also I freaking love For Fun/For Glory, gating off the people fighting for different reasons is probably the best thing they could have done. A+, Nintendo. Now everyone can sit in their own yards and not stink up the other ones. Also also, release dates! I have no idea what to make of this. Kinda hopeful that maybe, as someone said on Twitter, this could potentially lead to the WiiU version getting a Subspace Emmisary like mode to set it apart from the 3DS version, even if it would probably incite fan-rage, and that whole thing from Sakurai with how he wouldn’t include it because people uploaded the videos to youtube (and yes of course a story isn’t really a priority for a game like this) was just another smoke screen, like how Zero Suit Samus wasn’t coming back? Hope springs eternal, I guess.

    • s07195

      Dat Les Mis reference. >.>

      • Göran Isacson

        I always strive to give my silly comments about flame wars a pinch of culture and class. only the finest for my internet hangouts.

  • Anthony Birken

    Yessssss Samus! Zero Suit Go! god damn, I want a Wii U. 3DS is cool though!

  • Dom

    So does this mean no more Squirtle and Ivysaur….. *sadface*
