Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Super Smash Blog mostly went through Brawl newcomers like Ike, Wolf, and Dedede this week (plus Peach), but the highlights of the week belongs to a full look at Final Destination in this game and a new Super Mario Bros. 3 Fortress Boss theme arrangement by Metal Gear Solid series composer Akihiro Honda.
THE super princess. Watch out for her powerful kicks while she’s airborne. Using her down special, she picks vegetables and throws them at her opponents. Sometimes she even gets items… like a Bob-omb!
The leader of the Star Wolf mercenary team makes his grand return after 10 years! He puts his sharp claws to good use in wild attacks, and his Final Smash is an all-out attack by Team Star Wolf! If Fox or Falco is in the battle, you may hear a unique line of dialog.
Ike’s side smash attack is extremely powerful, but it leaves him open, so you’ll need to read your opponent’s moves carefully. You can choose between his Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn costumes.
#39 King Dedede
He’s not very fast, but he’s one of few heavyweight fighters with great recovery. Apparently, a defeat by Kirby inspired him to train hard to learn a move called Hovering, which allows him to float after taking a deep breath.
Final Destination – Returning stage
Though this is a simple stage, with no stage hazards or floating platforms, the background has been updated for this game. Make sure you don’t get too distracted and get defeated!
Fortress Boss (Super Mario Bros. 3) – New Arrangement
You can now listen to “Fortress Boss (Super Mario Bros. 3).” Enjoy this arrangement by Akihiro Honda while reminiscing about the bosses that have tried to stand in Mario’s way!
Arrangement supervisor: Akihiro Honda (known for work on Metal Gear Solid series, Zone of the Enders series, and Boktai 2)
