The Smash Ball Won’t Be The Only Item You’ll Fight Over In Super Smash Bros.


    When a Smash Ball appears during a Super Smash Bros. match, everyone drops what they’re doing and begins to fight over the Ball instead. However, in the new Super Smash Bros. game, the Smash Ball won’t be the only item you’ll want to grab first.


    The new game introduces an item called the Special Flag. Director Masahiro Sakurai wrote about the item in a post on Miiverse last night, along with the screenshot above.


    “If you manage to raise this Special Flag for long enough, an additional KO count will be added to your score in a time match, or you’ll get an extra stock for a stock match,” Sakurai wrote.


    “When this appears on the stage, the fight for the flag becomes a fierce battle of tactics, which makes things pretty interesting.”
