I have to warn you right now, we're spoiling two new playable fighters, so if you want to come into the new Smash Brothers totally clean well... good luck with that! It appears that the Wii U version is going with a style closer to previous Smash Brothers games (but in glorious HD), while the 3DS version is shooting for a more cell-shaded style?
New to the roster are "Villager" from Animal Crossing and Mega Man from, well, Mega Man!!! Oh man. I can already tell you that the second one is going to be one of my main fighters.
Both Smash Brothers games are due in 2014.
Check out the trailer below and stay tuned for more details!
Honestly, I think after Brawl, they kind of pushed Nintendo's characters as detailed as they'll go without altering the character designs themselves. I think it looks great, although the visuals have kind of plateau-ed.
I appreciate the detail in capturing Mega Man's 8-bit style and animations as well.
Well, it's not the characters, they look fine. It's the levels themselves. They certainly can look a lot better. It's like they took the Brawl engine and are just using that with no improvements. Hopefully that will change as it progresses. Mega Man's level looks cool though.
Yeah I'm loving the way this game looks. EDIT: One thing I don't like is the swooshing attack effects. I always hated the look of those, but they seem more subtle here than in most games.
And even more, I'm loving that the Smash Bros site is back. Sakurai's humor really shines through, even if he isn't going to do his updates like he did for Brawl (and apparently Kid Icarus Uprising...in Japanese only)
