While there were fewer updates this week, coinciding with the delay of the September 2018 Nintendo Direct, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Super Smash Blog showed off Bowser, Toon Link, Alolan Exeggutor, the Summit stage, and an very different arrangement of Pikmin’s main theme.
Who’s the greatest nemesis of all!? It’s King Bowser! In Super Smash Bros. his power and weight make him a reliable fighter. Use his Fire Breath to keep opponents at bay, then use his damaging attacks to launch them off the stage! He transforms into Giga Bowser for his Final Smash and delivers a super powerful punch!
#43 Toon Link
He’s smaller and faster than Link. His bombs explode with a unique anime-style. For his Final Smash, he emits light from his left hand and any opponents hit by it are trapped in the Triforce, subject to a punishing gauntlet of attacks.
Alolan Exeggutor – New Assist Pokémon
Check out this taaaall Pokémon. It may seem like it just gets in the way, but it can actually make it harder or easier for you to get a KO depending on where it’s placed on the stage.
Summit – Returning Stage
This stage is so exciting! When the summit of the mountain clears up you can slide down the incline straight into the ocean. There are tons of details to take in: the aurora floats over the mountaintop, a polar bear with sunglasses and swimming trunks swims in the ocean, and there’s even a mysterious fish that tries to eat the fighters…
Pikmin Main Theme – New Arrangement
You can now listen to “Pikmin – Main Theme.” Doesn’t it bring back memories of that title screen with all the Pikmin swaying? Please enjoy Hideki Sakamoto’s arrangement.
Arrangement supervisor: Hideki Sakamoto (known for work on Echochrome series, Time Travelers, Toukiden, and Monster Strike)
