Nintendo has revealed some more info for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate over on the Smash Blog, with the focus on this week being on the game’s many stages.
Personal favorite stage, Saffron City, is back and with a sweet graphical overhaul, not only will you have to defend yourself from competing players but also the stage hazards consisting of Chansey, Charmander, the cocky Electrode, Porygon, and Venusaur along with some others flying harmlessly through the background.
Also this week Character #16: Sheik got their turn in the spotlight, this time donning the Sheikah costume from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Most people are familiar with Sheik’s introduction and characterization from Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time as *SPOILER ALERT* Princess Zelda’s Sheikah disguise, used for supporting, teaching and defending Link.
After their debut in Smash Bros. Melee Sheik has gone on to become a top-tier Smash tournament staple.
Here’s something new! Animal Crossing’s Kapp’n, the beloved Kappa, now has his own Assist Trophy and it seems to be surprisingly practical and dark! Kapp’n drives into the stage and after hitting a character throws them into the back of the bus and drives off! That’s right Attempted Vehicular Homicide and Kidnapping! Animal Crossing’s representation in Smash is weird.
Finally before the real action starts in December take five and have a listen to Masafumi Takada’s breezy arrangement “Afternoon on the Island” from Tomodachi Life.
