Super Smash Bros 4 Release Date News Nintendo 3DS: Pic Of The Day Shows Off New Assist Trophy Wonder Red [SCREEN]
The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS details will keep coming from Nintendo ahead of the staggered release of both versions as we wait for a specific release date. We know the title will be out this summer on 3DS, and most likely this winter on Wii U, but it's seeming increasingly likely that this June's E3 will be when we are given the game's launch date.
What we do get for certain right now is Nintendo's daily updates from the game's official website, which mostly consists of daily pictures with captions. The last significant info drop came from a Nintendo Direct, below, which revealed several new characters and details.
The daily updates aren't usually as major, but they always reveal something new about the title--usually in the form of a stage, item, or game mechanic. Today he shows off another assist trophy, a popular item for series director Masahiro Sakurai's reveals.
The trophy is Wonder Red, which you can see in the image above, from the Wii U superhero title Wonderful 101. Here is Sakurai's brief accompanying description:
"Pic of the day. Fight! The Wonderful 100!! We also made trophies of some of the other Wonderful Ones."
To the disappointment of some fans, this likely means none of the heroes will be available as playable characters in Super Smash Bros., though it's still possible they elect one to make the jump. The fact that several heroes have been relegated to assist trophy status as well leads me to assume that won't be the case, however. Keep checking back for more Super Smash Bros. news ahead of E3, which will hopefully include an early specific release date announcement.
