These Super Smash Bros. Screenshots Look So Very Chaotic

By Ishaan . April 9, 2014 . 9:32am


Nintendo have sent out a giant batch of Super Smash Bros. screenshots, featuring all of the characters that were included in yesterday’s Nintendo Direct presentation. While the screenshots give one a good look at the different characters and stages, they also show off a thing or two you may not have known about earlier.


For example, the new Super Smash Bros. contains a number of elements from Capcom’s Mega Man franchise and Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, but thus far, there haven’t been any nods to Bandai Namco, who are developing the game.

Or rather, that’s what we thought up until now. Siliconera reader Justin tipped us off to the fact that the “Special Flag” item is in the game. The S-Flag appears in a number of Bandai Namco titles as a collectible item, or one that provides extra points. Additionally, there appears to be some sort of Galaga item in the game as well.

    Best game or best game?

    • Kornelious

      imma go with best game :)

    • RichyGaming

      Too early to say.

    • TheGioG

      Now I’m not saying this is best game, but it DOES feature your friendly Hylian cat-eyed stud here, so I’m saying it’s best game.

    • Namuro

      BEST GAME!!

  • 『ED−X』゜〜★* 平和 

    saki should of been playable :[

  • Hays Kronke

    Ness and Captain Falcon are missing, but at least we’ve seen the Franklin Badge, Mr. Saturn, and the Samurai Goroh assist trophy…. they wouldn’t drop any characters from the first game, right? Right?

    • Jero

      Both Capitan Falcon and Ness were from the original roster so I don’t think they’ll be left out, they probably won’t be revealed tho you’ll have to unlock them.

  • HershelLousyton

    *Briefly cries tears over Lyn still being an assist trophy*. Oh well, that was to be expected. Everything else looks great.

  • Raltrios

    Diddy’s got the Drill Arm! And the Eye Laser is there, too!
    Every time I see a new Kid Icarus item I smile inside :3

  • KingGunblader

    I saw it… the blue shell… oh god we’re all doomed.

    • Grape Monet

      At least it doesn’t have wings!… not that it’ll matter.

      • It doesn’t matter, because it does fly.

    • J_Joestar

      so does it seek out the player with the highest score? (would laugh if it could fly back towards you)

  • Razvaille

    Megaman X officially no playable :( Well very nice Final Smash!

    • Deva Ashera

      I think it was never likely for any other MegaMan incarnations to make it..they would play too similarly to MegaMan and Sakurai would probably opt for Zero or a different Capcom rep if they got a 2nd rep..same reason for no Shadow for a 2nd Sega Rep.

  • they really upgraded that zero suit samus coughboobscough

    • She looks really bizarre. I wish they had cut that cheesecake crap.

      “Yeah I just figured, I’m a super tough bounty hunter who kills alien pirates in a spacesuit, why not get implants?”

      • I kind of wonder if that was an effect of working with Bamco. Hard to say though.

    • Yeahhh. I’m torn, because her suit looks cooler and she looks slightly less fanservicey to me (at least it isn’t molded around her boobs), but at the same time, they definitely could have made her chest flatter.

      • Miss_Madness

        Actually I think that’s why her boobs look bigger since the suit isn’t molded to her boobs anymore. Which is kinda funny all things consider.

        • I was also thinking that may be the case, and it is funny in that light. x’D

  • Theob Vious Choice

    Well, now they’ve convinced me to buy a mediocre system. Guess I’ll get a Wii U on bargain somewhere, someone must have a Wii U sitting in their attic all like “Hey, sell me for $5.”

    • Tincho Kudos

      Iwata : *laughs

    • Herok♞

      What exactly is mediocre about it?

    • MaximDualBlade

      Man. If you don’t like the system, don’t buy it. I don’t enjoy it either, but coming here just to say that, is just sad and bad man.

      • Theob Vious Choice

        “Well, now they’ve convinced me to buy a mediocre system. Guess I’ll get a Wii U on bargain somewhere, someone must have a Wii U sitting in their attic all like “Hey, sell me for $5.”

        MaximDualBlade goes to Google Translate.
        Theob Vious Choice 7 hours ago: “I am not buying a Wii U, it’s a bad system and anyone who likes it should be ashamed.”

        “Sell me your mediocre Wii U for $5 so I can play one of it’s extremely rare good games.” would have been a better interpretation.

        I could have said way worse, like how at least this time around people can feel justified in saying “I bought a Nintendo console mainly for Smash Bros.” without batting an eye. :P

  • Kayriss Wins

    When’s Earthbound Boy’s? I want them so bad lol.

    • Chaos_Knight

      The Franklin Badge is confirmed to return which means Ness (and possibly Lucas) will return also.

    • PreyMantis

      Mr. Saturn is in, so it’s only a matter of time or a matter of unlocking in the game.

    • To be honest, even though we need Ness and I can’t wait to see him, I’d rather have Kumatora over Lucas. Jeff and Paula would be really fun additions though. . .

      • Kayriss Wins

        I’d love to have Kumatora in the game too but It just seems too unlikely, if they do decide to add other Mother characters it will most likely be only characters from Mother 2 since IMO Mother 3 get’s overshadowed by 2 a lot which is a shame because I like 3 more than 2.

        • I was thinking that, especially with M2/Earthbound now on Wii U. I enjoy them equally myself, but M3 definitely does not get enough love.

  • Brimfyre

    Alright, it took me a while, but I’m all aboard the Hype Train. Zero Suit Samus pushed me over the edge.

    It’s still odd seeing Shiek with a man face, I always just assumed it was Zelda with some padding, but she fully transforms into a dude when she is Shiek.

    • PreyMantis

      That’s why she was so convincing in Ocarina of Time– it’s impossible to tell it’s Zelda.

  • Game of the year

  • Spirit Macardi

    Holy crap, did Diddy just learn to believe in the him who believes in himself?! XD

    Having a Galaga item is interesting, though ironic considering Namco cancelled its web comic (among dozens of others). I’m hoping for a Pac-Man item now… Mainly because that’ll guarantee that he won’t be playable x3

    • Do you really believe it to be so? Items aren’t to be factors for a Playable Character’s representation. You don’t want Pac-Man, yet you’d expect an item from his franchise? That’s an oxymoron.

      • Spirit Macardi

        I’m saying HIM as an item. Like an Assist Trophy. Or whatever item type the Galaga ship is. Maybe have his arcade form show up and chomp across the screen; could actually make a good item.

  • SlickRoach

    I honestly wasn’t excited for a new Smash Bros. game at first since at the time of announcement it was buried under so much other big gaming news and two new consoles competing against one another but now I’m hyped as hell after Greninja was announced and these crap ton of new assists and items.

    Also, Dat Substitution Jutsu…literally!

    • Guest

      That substitute doll looks so… funnily enough… real XD

      • SlickRoach

        Right? You can practically see the fuzzy material it’s made out of. Would totally buy a plush of that thing.

        • Deva Ashera

          You can, they make real ones..Sakurai even had one in the Super Smash Bros. Direct

    • I was already immensely hyped, but Greninja would have done it for me too. x’D

      • SlickRoach

        Greninja was the last hit a druggie takes to reach overdose. Help me, I need a MaxRevive.

  • haha poor luigi
    get off yoshi charizard D=
    everytime i see that mega smash i almost squeal ^ ^

  • Ardus

    Ahh midna assist trophy, Every game everywhere needs more midna.
    Even though im only getting the 3DS version im really looking forward to playng sheik and diddy kong, Also is it me it is the villagers ability to collect ANYTHING kinda creepy. Its only a matter for time before he starts collecting peoples souls!

    • Souls, Bodies, their taxes. He really is a hard-working Mayor.

  • Jero

    The screens are (almost) always of the wiiu version and at first that really got me worried because I thought “the 3ds ver is probably shit but how can that be… it’s sakurai”. But yesterday I saw a lot of the 3ds ver and it looked quite good. Plus, 60 FPS, that’s great. Blessed Sakurai you never dissapoint.

  • I came here to post a profound comment after looking through the screenshots and stuff, but all I can right now is……
    Holy crap.

    It’s so beautiful and so much more.

    • The kaomoji was quite profound, so that’s okay. >u<

  • vileBrenman

    I hope they.confirm captain falcon soon…and nes

    • Akemi Homura

      We did get to see Goroh in the direct, so that’s good news. Falcon’s probably gonna stay hidden so we can unlock him when the game comes out, but I’m 99% sure he’s confirmed.

      I wanna see Ness soon too though. It’s odd that the only Mother things we’ve seen are the Franklin Badge and Mr. Saturn ):

    • hazelnut1112

      Please stop it.
      Captain Falcon, Ness and Jigglypuff are not going to be cut. They are the original 12 and won’t get cut at all.
      This is like Brawl all over again, they were never shown inthe website during Brawl’s development and were revealed after the game was released.

  • Chim_era

    wow :)
    Lynn nice to see you here :D

    Everyone else looks badass too. it makes me almost want to buy a wii u :p

  • SirRichard

    Dark Samus totally could’ve been a good option for another Metroid rep, kind of miffed she’s relegated to an Assist Trophy.

    Otherwise, the sheer level of stuff and wonderful touches in this game is amazing, the summer can’t come soon enough.

    • Ben Sylvia

      I always felt Dark Samus would end up an alt costume or assist.

      In my opinion the most viable Metroid character for Smash is Weavel. All that sweet Space Pirate tech to make a moveset from.

  • All the old Assist Trophies are back, save for a few: Isaac, Ray, Shadow, the Exitebikers, and the Orange Star Army. Will that mean anything like it meant for Little Mac? Who really knows?! Only time, and Sakurai, will tell…

  • Wicked Rob

    umm does Samus look ..sexier??

    • EX+


  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    god…Samus *plots* got bigger XD and no jiggle I bet *but namco worked on this as well* Screen shots are so eye bleedingly beautiful I’m getting both the 3Ds and wii-u version

    • Deva Ashera

      Well they based her design off of the one featured in Other M, just with Rocket Boots, Wristbands, and her Brawl/Zero Mission Hair.

  • Kornelious

    Could it be….There are multiple costumes for Mega-Man :D
    Nah, it’s probally just the Final Smash or something, there I go getting my hopes up again :(

    • CptPokerface

      You’re right, it’s his Final Smash. And holy hell what a final smash it is..thats probably the best thing mega man fans could ask for.

      • T-X

        It really is a beautiful display of fan-service overkill.

      • celery

        It truly is. It hit me right in the feels–I loved everything in the Direct but I think this was my favorite reveal of all!

        • CptPokerface

          I almost feel like that Final Smash should be made into a commemorative statue or something. It’s really that good..I feel like I would salute every time I see it.

    • Spider-Man

      God damn do I miss Megaman.exe. This is great.

    • Legends truly never die.

    • im going to bet they are the alts, and the order changes depending on what costume you put on.

      • Ben Sylvia

        It wouldn’t work, the other four are all taller than classic, they’d either have to deform them, or drastically alter the hitbox for classic. And Classic’s abilities wouldn’t make sense on the others. If anything we’ll get a Protoman and maybe a Bass costume.

    • RajaNaga

      I could easily see Blues/Protoman as a costume, at least. My idea was that, and then some of the more popular weapon colour combos.

    • s07195

      Hm, I just noticed that Rockman.EXE is the only Rockman with a right-handed arm cannon. Also, Rockman Starforce isn’t from the third game in that series.

  • CptPokerface

    Alright Nintendo i get it, you win…i’ll get a wii u and buy this game twice now. Hype is too strong.

  • Michael Cortorreal

    Whats with all the megaman’s picture?
    Does that mean that…Megaman has alternate costumes in this game…shall i play Mega from Legends…or maybe X…only with the same kind of moves :D it will rock anyways.

    • J_Joestar

      Final Smash from what i hear.

      • Deva Ashera

        It was directly called his Final Smash in the Super Smash Bros. Direct that was on last Tuesday.

    • Buitronthecrazy .

      is his final smash.

  • fairysun

    Who’s up for this lady becomes a playable character? Instead of assist trophy.
    I don’t mind Marth or Ike being replaced by this Saccaen girl.

    • God

      Since she is not even on the original version of her own game, i highly doubt it.

    • Dom

      I was sad to see that she’s just an assist trophy again….
      It’d be cool if they replaced Marth with Eliwood or something. Ike must stay though.

      I wanna see Isaac (from golden sun) to not be an assist trophy and to be a playable character as well

      • RajaNaga

        There is no way that would happen, lol. Removing Marth at this point would be like removing Mario or Fox.

      • Ben Sylvia

        I honestly wouldn’t mind if Marth got axed in favor of another Lord. Don’t see where all the support is from since his two remakes nearly killed the series. If anything Lucina should have replaced him since Awakening saved the series from Shadow Dragon.

    • lemon

      Marth is the original lord. Replacing him would be blasphemous.

    • Deva Ashera

      As much as I really wanted Lyn to be playable, you can’t replace Marth, he’s the original main character while Roy, Ike, and Chrom are expendable.

  • urbanscholar

    Marth & Samus pic caption: I’m going to win this beauty contest! Keep dreaming sister :P

  • Something I’m not quite sure I’m understanding is why they gave Zero Suit Samus high heels. It should have been well known by now that that stuff is highly impractical, and her previous versions didn’t have that.

    • Nikokuno

      To replace Bayonetta :p (she remind me of a mix of C.Viper and Bayonetta)

    • ThunderGod_Cid

      Watch the actual ND, they’re suppose to be “rocket boots” which give her few kick-based abilities.

      Zero Suit Samus @ 18:10

      • Oh, well then. I’m fine with this.

      • David García Abril

        Let’s not kid ourselves. Those are high heels, “rocket boots” or not.

  • ZnTxn

    Elecman, even if he’s just an assist trophy, I really want them to use his voice actor from Powered-Up

    • Why is Elecman so fabulous, kupo?

  • Ryuukishi

    Samus, DAMN.

  • Kaetsu

    Out of all these pictures I got the most excited for Mr Saturn.

  • Oltheros

    Dat Samus doe

  • Guest

    Ha ha ha, that classic Animal Crossing bee hive!

  • exrazer

    Fire emblem character on the anniversary. April 20th. Please nintendo please?

    • Kaetsu

      Chrom announcement!

      • Ixbran

        Or Robin

        • jugss

          I want Tharja!!!!

    • Deva Ashera

      They won’t reveal a character so closely to another most we may see Ike if he’s none of the other Newcomers were revealed on important dates to their series.

  • goob47

    The S-Flag is from Rally-X, the arcade game…

    • Kaihedgie

      I more or less recognized it from Star Fox Assault

      • Deva Ashera

        Well, Assault was created by Namco.

  • Kumiko Akimoto

    That’s a lot of screen shots

  • Mugiwara

    Ness and Captain Falcon were always secret characters in all Smashes, why are people worrying so much about then?! ….

    • Deva Ashera

      Not all, just 2 of 3, Ness and Capt. Falcon were defaults in Super Smash Bros. Melee.

      • Mugiwara

        Hmm. I didn’t remember that. Thanks for the information. :D

  • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

    Hell yeah the Zero Suit Samus is back and better (Yes I’m fine with the bigger boobs and rocket highheels) then ever I was hoping she would be back Sakurai got me when he said she wasn’t going to be back.

    Although it really sucks that Dark Samus is an assist trophy come on Pokemon can have like five reps but Metroid can only get two.

    • T-X

      Hey if Little Mac and Wii U Fit Trainer can have alternate costumes I wouldn’t put it past them to try and give Samus a new skin as well.

  • T-X

    Game & Watch, Cpt Falcon, Jugglypuff, Ganondorf, Ice Climbers, Falco, Ness, Meta Knight, Wario and Wolf are yet to be announced (if at all).

    Hopefully they haven’t announced Ness yet because Andonuts or Kumatora will take Lucas’ place (or at least i hope Lucas is replaced only because he doesn’t look all that different from Ness; especially since Little Mac was promoted through the ranks of trophy, assist trophy, player – I have high hopes for Jeff Andonuts).

    • RajaNaga

      Lucas plays SO differently though, and I’m not just saying that because I am a huge Mother fan and would hate to see him cut. His moveset is more different to Ness than even Falco’s updated one was to Fox’s. He might LOOK visually the same, but that is thanks to the art/sprite style of those games and that is it. They didn’t even give him a yo-yo, which is a possible equip for him in the game. They obviously tried very hard to make him play different from Ness, and it showed.

      • T-X

        Yea but essentially Lucas was a revamped Ness. He was a buffed up Ness and since they are going to introduce move-set customization and character costumes (wire-frame Big Mac and Wii Fit Trainer male) I could see them just giving Ness a Lucas skin and you tweaking his moves to be more like Lucas.

    • I would love Jeff! But I totally feel like Kumatora would be a great addition (especially since she was referenced in Jeff’s trophy thing, she can use the Star Storm she taught him).

      I could also take Krystal over Wolf. . . but both would be cool!

  • Omg, So many pictures. So much chaos. In all those pictures, did anyone else notice that Zero Suit Samus and Shiek always seem to look pissed off? Also, so many items, both new and old confirmed in these screen shots. Blue Shell, Boomerang, Honeycomb and Tanuki Suit (new, crappy one). My god. It’s just so much. O_o

    • Still no Red Shells. I miss Red Shell Chaos.

  • Ace Esper

    If someone made a Smash 4 fanfic with every single one of these pics in mind, I’d surprised.
    ZSS with the bunny hood just makes my day XD

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    Yep, definitely maining Zero-Suit Samus

    • Vash bane

      its kinda weird for me seeing as in the wii one I main both Zelda and samus. but now that they are separate….does that mean I now have to main four characters D:?

  • Vash bane

    some of these screens I’ve seen else where mostly google “cough”
    so I’ve been curious for a while what exactly is that. that samus is using?

  • wahyudil

    the graphic is very beautiful … make me want to buy Wii U to play this game, and Mario Kart 8 … if there were more games in Wii U …

  • If they add anymore Kirby characters. . . they should add Ado/Adeleine! That painting mechanic would be really fun to battle with. x’D

    I need some more new character announcements though. :’/
    More than anything though, I’m hoping Shiek and ZSS don’t count as “new” characters in filling up the roster.
    (How close are to a roster as big as Smash’s?)

  • chroma816


    I’m pretty excited for it. The Battle Network games are my favorite.

    • s07195

      Pretty sure it’s just Rockman’s final smash. But yeah, HYPE.

      • chroma816

        That’s what I’ve heard, but come on – if they created an entirely new character model just for a single move, when it can easily be a costume as well, it’s simple to assume it’ll be used as one.

        If it’s not, that’s shitty.

        • Deva Ashera

          It can’t, a costume has to fit the proportions of the original Model, MMX, Exe, Volnutt, & Starforce are all too tall.
          At most, Volnutt and other MegaMan series reps may get trophies.

          • chroma816

            Don’t kill my dreams, maaaannnn

  • pokeroi

    Steel dive as a gun it pretty funny!

  • Ok so did Samus get boobjob or something? That HD breasts lol

  • Chido55

    Samus shots had me leavin with boner.

  • konsama

    TF dat pic with all 5 Megamans, the wound is opening again dammit, especially at seeing megaman volnutt. >_<
