Mii Swordfighters Look Pretty Versatile In Super Smash Bros.


As revealed last week, Miis are playable characters in Super Smash Bros. on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Miis come in three varieties—Swordfighters, Brawlers and Gunners. Last night on Miiverse, director Masahiro Sakurai outlined some of the Mii Swordfighter’s moves.


“Here are some weapons the Mii Swordfighter can use: Shurikens of Light, Chakrams, and Gale Strikes,” Sakurai wrote. “You can control the direction the Chakram is thrown, or even make it stall in midair. The Chakram is also the only one of these tied to the side special move, so you can use one of the other items consecutively with this one.”


Super Smash Bros. will release on 3DS in October, and the Wii U version will follow sometime this holiday.
