Nintendo recently broadcasted their last Video Presentation for Super Smash Bros. (Wii U and 3DS Versions). This means their will be no additional content, other than what was announced during this broadcast, released for these two installments in the series. A bittersweet event but lets hope they are focusing solely on the successors of these two fantastic games! Here is a brief recap of what they announced in the 30 minute video.
Corrin Joins the Battle!
- From Fire Emblem Fates
- You can play as a male or female of Corrin, much like Wii Fit Trainer
- Has dragon blood in his veins which allows him to transform unlike any other fighters, his head changes in appearance with every dragon attack
- His Special is called the Dragon Fang Shot, which paralyzes your opponent for a few seconds. Also, the transformed hand can attack nearby foes. The Dragon Lunge is Corrin’s Side Special, which allows you to pin your opponent into the ground!
- Corrin is scheduled to release in February 2016
Cloud Strife Joins the Battle!
- From Final Fantasy VII
- Limit Break – a gauge that will fill up as you attack opponents or record damage. This is similar to Little Mac’s KO gauge. You can charge up the gauge with his Down Special Attack. Once the Limit Break Gauge is full, your next attack will be more powerful than usual! After you use this attack, your gauge is reset.
- “Midgar” is the new stage! This location is from Final Fantasy VII.
- Cloud is available NOW for purchase!
