Marth’s Shield Breaker Moves Gets An Upgrade In New Super Smash Bros.


Marth’s Shield Breaker move has seen an upgrade in the new Super Smash Bros., director Masahiro Sakurai revealed alongside the game’s latest batch of screenshots.


Along with the above screenshot, Sakurai posted on Miiverse: “There weren’t a lot of people who used the Shield Breaker to break people’s shields, so we’ve now made it much more powerful. This pic is from immediately after a shield break.”


Sakurai also revealed that the Nintendogs assist trophy in the new game is now a French Bulldog, and that there’s a projectile weapon that looks like a submarine from Steel Diver in the game as well.
