Director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed a few more details on Little Mac in the new Super Smash Bros. game.
On Miiverse, Sakurai posted the screenshot above, stating: “Little Mac’s side smash attack is his straight right punch…but it can transform into an uppercut if you tilt diagonally upward, or a body hook if you tilt diagonally downward. The body hook is the most devastating of these moves and it doesn’t blast the opponents away.”
He added in a follow-up comment: “The trick in activating these punches is to avoid tilting the controls diagonally from the get go–instead, tilt up or down right after the smash attack starts kicking in. You can also tilt up or down while you’re powering up.”
