Here’s A Look At One Of Ike’s Attacks In Super Smash Bros.

By Ishaan . May 30, 2014 . 12:30pm

Earlier this week, Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai showed off one of Ike’s moves on Miiverse—the Eruption attack.


“You can charge up Ike’s Eruption attack by holding the button down, but remember to release it right before it fully charges to avoid recoil damage,” Sakurai wrote. “Let go of the button at the moment the sword shines!”


Super Smash Bros. is in development for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. The Wii U version of the game will be demoed at Best Buy stores across the U.S. in June.

        Shiida, Marcia and/or Tharja and I’m buying a Wii U for this

  • Well I’m happy with Ike being back in the game.
    I remember buying a Gamecube back in 2005 for both SSBM and FE: Path of Radiance for my birthday. Seeing Ike come back all mature and older now reminds me how much times has passed. Does Fire Emblem hold a deeper meaning to me growing up? Heck yeah! Because of FE and SB brings so much fun filled memories to me. One day I’ll share that experience with my kid and tell him why he should fight for his friends? Hahaha. Oh gosh, Im cheese ball ahaha

  • Chaos_Knight

    *insert witty comment about no blue flames (and about where’s Chrom) here*

  • Nanaki

    Look at those guns.

  • AuraGuyChris

    “Mamma Mia, Ike got-a buff-a!”

  • colorblindnightmare

    The use of DoR Ike makes me super happy. Also beautiful flames/shine!

    • God

      I still don’t see why they wen’t with the Hero design instead of the Vanguard one… on a side note, i wish his new final smash was dual wielding Ragnell and Alondite.

      • InsertOffensiveUsernameHere

        Seeing there were alternate models for the Wii Fit trainer and the Villager, I’m sure that the Vanguard design will be there in one way or another.

  • Dianatos

    For the Orange Flame!

  • Internet is Crash

    Why does Mario look like he tripped or something?

  • Raltrios

    And nobody will ever hit anyone with it.

  • British_Otaku

    Here is hoping that Ike gets a sword beam or something with one of his attacks, at least as part of his final smash.

    Ragnell and Alondite were pretty awesome as midrange weapons, making rangers seem almost pointless.

  • fireemblembeast

    That’s hot in more ways than one :3
    Also they should give Ike a long-range attack because Ragnell could attack from a distance. Like a powerful ranged slash just as Ike does it in Radiant Dawn when he attacks from two spaces away.

  • Vash bane

    I have no idea what fire emblem is about (if its a strategy game then no dice) but that attack reminds me of….errr…ummm


    roy since I’m being lazy (and slightly in a hurry) I have to guess is marth , roy , and ike from the same series?

    • Joshua Lewis

      same series diffrent games :3

  • Namuro

    Later in the court…

    “I’d like to submit the picture of the moment before the murder takes place, your honour.”

  • Jonathan Tse

    hope Eruption still has super armor on its active frames.

  • Daniel

    Sounds like what you people really want is Smash Emblem or Fire Bros idk take your pick

  • MaskedHeroxx

    Mama thr gose that man
