The physical characteristics of Miis play a role in their fighting style in Super Smash Bros., director Masahiro Sakurai revealed over Miiverse last night.
“Some of the physical characteristics of Miis get carried over when you use them as Mii Fighters,” Sakurai wrote. “The smaller ones become speed fighters and the bigger ones are more akin to power fighters.”
Of course, you can probably change these attributes once they’re in the game. As reported earlier in the month, Miis can be of three varieties—Brawler, Swordfighter and Gunner. Each one has 12 special moves to choose from, four of which can be equipped at a time.
