Super Smash Bros For Wii U And 3DS News: Star Fox 'Great Fox' Ship Revealed, Will Likely Feature As Stage [SCREEN]
The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS details will keep coming from Nintendo ahead of the staggered release of both versions, even after all the excitement from E3.
The title will be out for 3DS on October 3, as Nintendo announced at the gaming conference, and this holiday season on Wii U. A specific release date for the console version will likely be forthcoming as winter approaches, but Nintendo has plenty of time to make that announcement.
Several new characters and other details were revealed at E3 as expected, including the unveiling of Lady Palutena, Pac-man, Mr. Game & Watch, and the Mii Fighters. Even after these major announcements, though, series director Masahiro Sakurai will continue to give us comparatively smaller details through the official site in the form of a daily picture update.
Today's post shows off the Great Fox from the Star Fox series, which has long been present in Super Smash Bros. It looks like it will again feature as a stage, allowing players to fight on its exterior. Here's Sakurai's description:
"Pic of the day. Here's the Great Fox from Star Fox: Assault. I wonder what missions it will conduct. It'll probably have fighters running around on top of it without the pilot's consent."
Sakurai only cites the ship as being from Star Fox assault, but it's featured in almost every game in the series so far. Keep checking back for more Super Smash Bros. news each day, where we'll hopefully see new character reveals or a Wii U release date.
