New Smash Bros. screenshot with mechanics explanation

daily45

In what can only be described as a completely unexpected development, Super Smash Bros developer Masahiro Sakurai has once again posted a screenshot from the upcoming Super Smash Bros game on Miiverse today. The screenshot showcases longtime rivals Link and Pit locked in an epic sniper duel, their intense blows clashing against each other, with nothing less than the very fate of Wuhu Island itself resting on the outcome of their battle!

Along with the screenshot Sakurai had this to say:

“Both Link and Pit use bows, but when they fire simultaneously, their arrows meet and cancel out closer to Pit. Besides attack power and projectile speed, there are many elements that affect tactics, such as accuracy, vulnerability after attacking, and even seemingly unrelated features like a character’s physical abilities.”

This suggests that Link’s arrows will fly faster than Pit’s in this game, but both will have similar attack power, thus being able to cancel each other out.

So, who do you think would win in a fight, Link or Pit? Let us know in the comments below!

    Pit, he would just spam the anti projectile stuff and fly around shooting with his damn arrows

  • Heaven on Earth

    Link you are the best cant wait for your official game to arrive on the wii u

  • Lil J Moore

    Link easily

    • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

      Awww… You can’t just say Link with giving your rational as to why.

      Why is Link so superior to Pit that you give him an easy victory? Is it his armor, weapons, tactics? You have to justify your answer! Come on. Please?

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    Link.

    • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

      Well don’t just say “Link,” give us some reasons why! It’s not interesting if you don’t explain why you think Link would win.

      • GregoryTheRainMaker

        “So, who do you think would win in a fight, Link or Pit? Let us know in the comments below!”

        • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

          I was just hoping for something a little more than just one word answers.

        • Mario

          i don’t know. Depending on who are using them.

      • Lil J Moore

        Link has so much equipment at his disposal (if we are going by that rule) That he has enough to get of any situation thrown at him. That’s what I think anyway.

    My daughter uses Pit…she usually runs all the time until she gets the super smash and wears us out with the ‘flying monkeys’. On occasion she hits a hot streak and fights and does pretty well…but what I really hate…my other daughter uses Kirby…float…smash you with a brick or spike ball…rinse, wash, repeat (she currently holds the official ‘champion of the galaxy’ belt). And of course they usually all three start out by ganging up on me because it is fun to wipe me out…plus they remind me they get to pick my nursing home…

    • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

      Haha! Sounds fun!… if a little frustrating.

      But that’s a good thing though, that you take the time to play games with your daughters. Spending time with their family is good for children, and I bet your daughters really enjoy playing with you!

      You sound like a really great dad!

      • brine

        They’ve gotten much better over the years (16,14,12). I used to be able to wear them out…We play four rounds, each person gets to pick a location…if you win a round or have the most overall knockouts then you are in the championship…usually the town scene or the new pokemon stadium is the venue for that…people not in the championship because they didn’t meet the criteria still fight and act as spoilers…and whoever out of the championship qualifiers lasts the longest get to enshrine their name and character played on the official belt. Last time we played Kirby won all four rounds so we didn’t play the championship round… : (

        We have a PS3 but it has sat relatively untouched for 3 years (occasional frisbee golf tournament with the move). Waiting to see how quick Nintendo can get some more games out before jumping on the PS4….Nintendo 3D World is fun but waaay too easy at this point (although thankfully less chaotic than Mario games are with 4 player)…Wii Party U is okay but isn’t by any stretch a Mario Party game….many of the other games have been pretty decent but single player by virtue of being too chaotic with more than one or two people or just single player period. Haven’t ever played MarioKart but the kids have so definitely look for that one to hit the shelves.

    • Mario

      LOL!

    • Mario

      What’s with the downvotes?

      • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

        We think it’s some loser we banned a few months ago for being a troll. He apparently took it pretty hard so he’s been going around down voting all the comments. Don’t worry about it too much, it’s just a kid with a little too much time on his hands.

  • YogiGRB

    hmmm …… could be a tie

    • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

      Oh? Why do you say that?

      • YogiGRB

        while they both have a bow,Link can boomerang him, Pit can fly away but link can grapple him back to the ground. Pit attacks with a some orbs, Link blocks with shield etc :D

  • Lil J Moore

    Speaking of Link. A Link to the Past is now available on the WiiU E-shop

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      This is true.

    • http://nintendopapercraftvideos.wordpress.com/ Sam

      Awesome! But I have a SNES with aLttP.

      • Marcell Wade

        but now you can own an HD copy on Wii U.

        • http://nintendopapercraftvideos.wordpress.com/ Sam

          Impossible. Its 16-bit.

          • companyoflosers

            wii u upscales it to 1080p.

          • Marcell Wade

            doesn’t matter, the Wii U version is 16 bit but that image is now in HD, wheres the Wii version is SD that’s what I mean.

          • Marcell Wade

            hears another example of what I mean, lets say ALTTP was a movie, which would you want to own, a VHS (Wii) copy or Blueray (Wii U) copy, the Wii U version is in a better video output than it’s previous version on Wii.

          • Denvy

            Regardless of a better video output it’s not HD now matter how you slice it. 480i at best perhaps.

          • http://nintendopapercraftvideos.wordpress.com/ Sam

            Well obviously Blu-ray, but it’s a 16-bit game; it can’t be HD. Just like if you got SM64 on the VC; just because it’s on an HD system doesn’t mean its HD. It’s like the Wii Channel.

          • StigtriX

            The pixels appear sharper on Wii U, whereas on Wii, they appear washed out in comparison. You need to see it to understand.

          • http://nintendopapercraftvideos.wordpress.com/ Sam

            Well it is “High Definition”. either way, I’d rather play it the real way on my ‘ol SNES.

        • Denvy

          Do you even know the difference between HD and SD? Just because I put a DVD in a blu ray player doesn’t mean I’m watching HD.

          • Marcell Wade

            like I said, doesn’t matter, the main point is, it’s still a better picture, even if it’s a slight difference, theirs a difference, that’s the point, and how could you ask me if I know the difference between SD & HD, did you not read my examples I gave to Sam, hell PS2 is in SD, PS3 Would be HD, it’s not a hard concept ok, man.

          • Denvy

            You still don’t understand that VC games are not HD. Must be hard for you to grasp.

          • Marcell Wade

            Their quality output man, that’s what your not grasping.

          • Denvy

            You said VC games are HD when they are clearly not 720 nor 1080. Therefore not HD. The fact that they look better on my HDTV than hooking up my old consoles means nothing.

          • Marcell Wade

            Their output on Wii U is 1080p, wheres the output was 480i on Wii and that’s a fact, so no matter what you say that image of ALTTP is running in 1080p, I’m not saying the game itself has been reworked into HD like Wind Waker HD, hell any game can be ran in an higher output, their are people who ran the original GameCube release of Wind Waker in 1080p on PC’s, which looks way better than it does in plain SD, and yes Wind Waker HD looks millions of times better because it’s built for HD, so a cleaner picture means nothing to you, that I really don’t believe, but it means something to me, and that’s the whole point of Nintendo releasing them over on Wii U, because they look better, also if it wasn’t important Ninty wouldn’t even bother “changing the output period from 480i to 1080p”, that’s my last post on this, sorry if I’m bugging you.

          • Denvy

            Your ignorance of HD v SD should be bugging you.

  • GregoryTheRainMaker

    A release date…I want a release date for SSB4. O.O

    • Mr. J

      Yeah get in line

      • GregoryTheRainMaker

        *gets in line* The wait…this wait it’s frustrating.

        • Mr. J

          Lol

          • The_Last_Metroid

            how did these get 26 downvotes each?

          • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

            We think it’s some guy we banned a couple of months ago. Apparently he just can’t get over it and now has to hang around the comments down voting people all the time.

            Nothing to be done about it really.

          • Mr. J

            I agree what did I do?

          • The_Last_Metroid

            I don’t know man. sorry for yah

  • Rick Valenta

    I’m pretty burnt out on Smash Brothers news. It’s a game not the second coming of Jesus. I’ll buy it when it comes out and enjoy playing the hell out of it with my Xbone bro friends who wouldn’t otherwise be playing Nintendo…

    • GregoryTheRainMaker

      I wouldn’t say I am entirely burnt out, but at this point I want to hear an official release date more than anything. It’s gone on long enough.

    • frank gore

      good thing u bought an xbone, no need to worry about burning out since theres like no games for it right now lol

      • Rick Valenta

        I didn’t buy a damn Xbone! You wouldn’t catch me dead with one of those boat anchors!! I’m just saying the Smash brothers series has always been a good way to get my friends to come play some Nintendo.

        • matthew garcia

          Every console has must have games including xbone

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    Link, The Hero of Time

    • Mario

      And Pit, also known as “Kid Icarus”.

      • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

        Why the Game is Called Kid Icarus. i heard that icarus was a human whit wings. but Pit is a Angle Why he’s Called Kid Icarus?

        • Mario

          Um… Good point. Maybe is because, unlike the other angels, Pit is the only one that seems to have the appearance of a human teenager. But with wings of course.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            a Angle who Can’t Fly. Right???

        • ShawVMedia

          I think it is because the story about Icarus is that he flew too close to the sun with wax wings or something like that. The wings melted and caused him to fall of course. Pit, is granted the gift of flight that is only temporary. Since his flight is temporary and so was the fabled Icarus… Boom Kid Icarus is born.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            ooohhh yeah

        • Prince Ali

          I dont know about the orginal, but in Kid Icarus Uprising, Even though he’s an angel with wings, Pit cannot fly on his own. He can only fly with Palutena’s help and early in the game she even states that if he flies for too long, his wings will burn up (similar to what happened to Icarus).

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Yeah Not Bad

        • http://goggles.sneakygcr.net/ Speed

          Pit actually asks Palutena who Icarus is in the tutorial of Kid Icarus Uprising. It seems that even he isn’t aware of the reason.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Just A Big Nintendo Mistery Right

  • RichM

    I really wish Nintendo would pull an Apple right now…”SSB is available….now!” I think Link would win. Sure, the arrows cancel each other out….but, what if link pulls out a bomb? How about he attacks with the hook shot? Does Samus’s canon destroy the arrow and then do lesser damage to the player? It is a laser canon after all? How about a super missle vs. and arrow? Hmmm?

  • Magnus Eriksson

    ” The screenshot showcases longtime rivals Link and Pit locked in an epic sniper duel”

    Why rivals?

    • http://wiiudaily.com/ Colin Malone

      No real reason other than it sounded cool to me.

      I was mostly just being silly as I wrote this. It seemed like a good article to have some fun with.

      • Mario

        Right…

    • matthew garcia

      To bad we have to wait til may

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    I think it depends who would win a battle, as in the latest uprising game Pit uses many weapons besides his bow, he uses swords, guns, orbs, clubs and even claws. So I think during an epic battle between the two, Link will win with swordfights, but with bow battles I believe Pit would claim victory over Link.

  • bizzy gie

    Pit would win.

  • Miles “Tails” Prower

    Hmm…both are pretty good fighters. I can’t seem to choose.

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Can’t Choose a Player Tails?

  • linkzero65

    i want to try it with samus and mega man. That would be AWESOME

  • tronic307

    Quick, someone IP ban that downvote troll.

  • Marcos Parreira

    It depends on who is using each. And Link is so heavy on Brawl, I hope they fix this.

  • Donaald

    Nice shading.
