Careful! You Can Accidentally Hurt Yourself In The New Super Smash Bros.


Last week’s batch of Super Smash Bros.screenshots detailed a few more miscellaneous points about the game. Director Masahiro Sakurai touched upon various characters, gameplay mechanics and items that will be present in the 3DS and Wii U title.


Sakurai: “So far, which attack can blast away enemies the most dynamically… Is it King Dedede’s fully charged Jet Hammer? Nah, it can’t beat the K.O. uppercut. You can damage yourself by overcharging this attack, so watch out.”



Sakurai: “The Bumper is back with a detailed new design. This also means there will be no Flippers. Here’s the back side of the Bumper. There’s way too much detail put into the side you can’t really see. The designers really went overboard.”


Sakurai: “The twin grannies, Kotake and Koume, appear in Gerudo Valley! They’re definitely up to no good.”
