Super Smash Bros For Wii U Details: Mushroom Kingdom U Menace 'Nabbit' Revealed, Captures Players During Combat
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 focuses on the Mushroom Kingdom U stage, which was revealed in its own post a few weeks back. In particular, Sakurai reveals a character that can interfere with the combat--here's his description:
"Pic of the day. Here's Nabbit, who appears in the Mushroom Kingdom U stage. You can't see him, but Luigi is inside Nabbit's bag."
Seemingly, Nabbit (get it?) captures players and runs off, perhaps damaging them in the process. You can see it in action in the image above, and though it may not be the major news some fans want, it's fun to see some of the smaller details that will make up the game.
