Super Smash Bros Wii U Zelda screenshots

Nintendo has released a bunch of new Super Smash Bros U screenshots, showcasing one of the newest characters: Zelda. The screenshots show her pitted against numerous opponents, including the regular and toon Link, Princess Peach, Samus Aran, and many others.

The screenshots also confirm that Super Smash Bros U will indeed run at 1080p on the Wii U. The game is expected to be released this year, hopefully this Summer. In addition to the Wii U, there will be a 3DS version as well.

    Woo!

  • Ben Ifits

    game of the year calling it right now

    • DragonSilths

      Nope. X wins. Or Miyamoto’s new game if he still has his magic touch and makes a new blockbuster.

      • Guest

        Nope, TLOU wins.

        • readypembroke

          Get off of here you stupid Sony fanboy.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Really i hate Sony very they are stealing Nintendo’s idea’s and changing a little bit and say that they idea was IT’S NOT

          • readypembroke

            What do you mean by stealing ideas? I haven’t really noticed them stealing Nintendo’s ideas besides the Move. The only game that Sony published that blew me away lately is Beyond: Two Souls. That game has very awesome graphics and a good storyline. Alot of quick time actions if you have the
            “I Play Games Often difficulty” on.

          • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

            Oh Yeah and PlayStation All Stars is Too Much Look Like Super Smash Bros

        • DragonSilths

          TLOU came out last year you idiot. How does it win GOTY for this year? By the way Last Of Us had great graphics and story but shit gameplay it felt like Uncharted.

  • Logic

    Brought back the Twilight Princess Version Yes!

    • Marlon Frijters

      I think it’s even the same Zelda that we will see in this form in Zelda U ;)

      • Asturias_Knytt

        That’s one pre-order cancelled if so.

        • Russel Bowersox

          No worries. I’m just about positive that in some of the random news we get about the game it was confirmed that this new game will have a new unique art style… I would also be pretty disappointed to see the same art syle used again. Especiall if we’re moving to HD!… I want to see something new that will blow our minds.

          • Asturias_Knytt

            Aonuma says a lot of things. Hope you’re right. I’ve heard the same thing.

    • Elitepwnsface

      I was hoping for pirate Zelda…

    • Ace J

      so is Link in SSB4 the TP version or the SS version?? because he looks more like the TP version

  • Drunken Reggie

    We are glad that fans are warming up to Zelda as a character added to Super Smash Bros on the Wee U. With all your heart warming feedback, Zelda won’t have to iron Link’s clothes again. More come to news. My name is ready, and my body is Reggie!

    Thank you and happy gaming to our wonderful fans.

      Wait a sec, you’re drunk?

          Are you still having shots of sake with Iwata and Miyamoto?

        • Squid

          Was Brewster at that meeting?

  • Kirbyomega

    How does it confirm it’ll run are 1080p?

    • Drunken Reggie

      It runs in true 1080p. By my name alone, I would never lie about such a thing. We appreciate your heart felt curiousity.

      • Wren Justin Umlauf

        It really bothers me when people act like the real person for some reason. I get it’s a joke, but dont answer peoples legitimate questions

        • Drunken Reggie

          I’m sorry this bothers you good sir, but I have to do my job and make sure every fan is informed of news. As President of NOA, I have a job to do. I do appreciate your heart warming concerns.

    Sweetness! now I got something to gaze at for awhile! ^_^

    • LightupmyLife

      Ahem……

      • Lusunup

        Not like that dude…

  • Guest

    Princess Zelda looks incredibly sexy and dangerous in full HD! Sora and the Tekken team at Namco-Bandai have done an outstanding job in co-developing Super Smash Bros. Looking forward to an official release date from Nintendo Direct later this year.

      Whoever thumbed my comment down is either a troll or an a**hole getting more status points.

  • Satoru Iwata

    Zelda will now be included in every Smash Bros title from now and into the near future. We hope our fans will be happy with this news. Thank you and please understand.

    Always support Nintendo.

  • LevenThumps

    This game keeps getting better and better.

  • Lusunup

    I actually wana know how he got the pics I couldnt find it on the smash site ._.

  • The Clockwork Being

    Zelda is probably one of the best characters in Smash Bros. And she is one of my favorites. Now if only LUCAS could be back that would make me so happy. While they are it why not bring in the Masked Man, Isaac or Chrom!

  • Flawless Victory

    I’ll start out with Zelda first, Rosalina second, and Princess Peach last. This fearsome threesome for the win! Well, more like a foursome if you know what I mean. ;)

    P.S. – I forgot about Samus! Make that a fivesome. ;D

    • TaintedXGamer

      the Nintendo’s Angels you mean? -Charlie’s Angels- and you said 4 characters not 5, you were right the first time round. :P

  • Tacorevolution

    I like toon links big head.

  • Big-B

    Zelda has mastered the ways of the Jedi, apparently.

    • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

      Nice one, but actually, Zelda is just doing her down taunt after hitting Toon Link.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    Her body is certainly ready.

  • Guest

    What about Dedede?

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      He was mentioned the other day.

      That’s how you really look?

  • wiimenonowiiu

    I think this is the first articale that john wrote with some truth and honesty about time this is the kinda stuff you need to do john its good and informative

  • tom

    Who cares about the screen shots give us the release date!

  • RecheDiazrivarola

    This image was lost

    • Fierce-Deity Link

      final smash about to commence?

  • RecheDiazrivarola

    and.

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      is it just me or is Link’s tunic blue

      • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

        Nah, it’s just an illusion, if you look closely, you can tell it’s actually green.

        • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

          Oh Yeah it’s just the blue light that it look like blue

      • Fruits

        It’s the blue light from the stage (you can see it on the side of the stage lighting) emanating on his tunic.

        The light effects in this game are gorgeous, unlike Brawl, which was very tinted.

  • A SNES Day Off

    Reggie’s body is Zelda.

    I mean, it’s READY!

  • Lord Carlisle

    I didn’t really care about these screenshots… until I saw Olimar.

  • DragonSilths

    This is old news…

  • companyoflosers

    glad that they recognize this is the zelda design people wanna see. no offense to the people who like the skyward design but that zelda doesnt look like she could harm a fly. and to be honest the only other zelda that could have been in the running was the wind waker one which would be interesting to see how that played out since she would transform into tetra instead of shiek. i like shiek better than tetra but it still would have been cool to see her move set. regardless i hope this is a sign of whats to come in zelda U, i always liked twilight princess’s art style the most despite how under powered the consoles it ran on were. if you want a GOOD idea of what twilight princess could have looked like, and assuming you have the specs, run it on max settings and resolution on the dolphin emulator. looks AMAZING rendered in hd. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W3LVyGZUAaw

    • Asturias_Knytt

      I certainly don’t want to see this generic design.

      • companyoflosers

        lol generic?! its the most unique zelda design they have made! you have some pretty weird ideas about what constitutes as generic. perhaps you need to hear the definition of that word. generic: characteristic of or relating to a class or group of things; not specific. Noun: a consumer product having no brand name or registered trademark.

        • Asturias_Knytt

          Unique? Have you returned from your deep slumber?

    • TaintedXGamer

      while it would have look VERY Strange for the SS Zelda To be Fighting considering she is the original zelda (ala the LOZ timeline) they made a few that wouldn’t have been seen fighting Ever possible. In before one of zelda skins resembles SS Zelda.

  • Heaven on Earth

    This game is Nintendo at its finest all of their characters duking it out in a all out slugfest I definitely will be getting a wii u deluxe Mario bundle this Friday when I get paid.On another note how bout my 49ers

  • Squid

    Everyone looks beautiful, even purple Pikmin.

    • David Byrad

      XD That made me laugh so hard! I can’t understand why you’d get a downvote though…

      • Squid

        Didn’t know it would be funny, but pleased to hear that. :)

  • mojack411

    It absolutely astounds me the detail that it being put into these characters. Zelda and Link’s clothes are incredibly impressive. You can see the fine cloth and threads that make them up and Zelda’s shoulder pads are actually dimpled like crudely tempered metal. It’s amazing because most people won’t even notice this kind of detail in a chaotic 4 man brawl. Only when the game is paused and screenshots are taken will anyone ever see it and yet here it is. Quality at it’s finest.

    • David Byrad

      Yep, but just because it’s nintendo and has bright the Dude Bro gamers will still say it looks “unrealistic”

      The good news is dude bro gamers actually tend to like smash! I have 2 relatives who play nothing but shooters, sports and AC and yet once I got them to play Brawl Project M, they really enjoyed the game!

  • Michael Ocampo

    This is old news….

  • Kingdom Hearts fan :3

    A lil something I did…

    • Asturias_Knytt

      There is no Triforce, merely Chuck Norris doing synchronized swimming. When he got bored, the Triforce split.

  • Guest

    I’m really excited about the game, and it looks great, but how do these screenshots prove that it runs in 1080p? Every one I’ve seen so far has been 1280×720 or smaller.

    • NyallJodhan

      I was wondering the same thing myself.

    • Fruits

      Smash Wii U looks 1080p sharp to me, if not at least 1080i.

      Still, I wanna see the level of detail someone like Captain Falcon, Ganondorf, or Snake has.

      Smash 3DS might be in 30 fps though, which I doubt many people will mind.

  • Fierce-Deity Link

    i really hope sakurai makes here a better character… she has been a crappy character to use since melee :/

    • Zarvius A’trel Jones

      Thank you she sucks.

      • Fierce-Deity Link

        tbh, her moveset is fine for the most part, but her magic attacks have no knockback unless you sweet spot it.. if she is gonna be an easy character to kill [she is floaty and her weight class is low] then her attacks should at least be more precise and effective..

        • Fruits

          It has more to do with her frame rate.

          Her startup and cool down frames are higher than Bowser in a lot of instances for the same moves that do less damage, knockback, and hitstun. It’s ridiculous.

          It was bad in Melee, but dreadful in Brawl.

          • Fierce-Deity Link

            i’m not m2k so i don’t know about frame rates and such xD
            i just found it annoying that you would have to sweet spot her attacks perfectly just to get an actual knockback.. i mean, it reminds me of how falcon’s knee was easier to sweetspot and in brawl you’d have to be perfect as all hell to hit…

  • Asturias_Knytt

    More emo/goth Zelda. Ffs Nintendo. Why can’t we have Katsuya Terada Zelda with a bit of surrealism instead of this generic garbage just to please the masses?

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    Zelda Look’s beautiful in this game Really why can’t other company’s make Beautiful Characters Without they are Half-Naked

  • Russel Bowersox

    …we’re not getting this game this summer… If we get this game this year at all. Which I think we will.. Sakurai is one of the hardest working people in the industry, and he made that his goal, and I’m sure it will happen!… But us actually GETTING the game by summer, that seems farfetched…It’ll almost definitely be November / December when it comes out.

    • Fruits

      I agree with this because it’s 2 games, not 1, on 2 entirely different consoles with different setups.

      Also, because Melee was delayed once, and Brawl twice.

  • hikkerd

    I love thet you can make good comments without using the sarcasm to confuse my mind

  • LopsidedPasta

    If you notice in this picture, Toon Link has the fully upgraded Master Sword, but not the Mirror Sheild. Paradox? I think so.

  • Guest

    I know right! You see it and even though it isn’t sexual, you’re just there staring like

    They don’t know what’s under bikinis, that’s why.

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    That’s the power of Nintendo Beautiful Artworks but Always Child friendly. i think that Nintendo the only company i know that not able use adult warnings for they games

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    Toon Link also had the Hero’s Shield in Brawl and Ganondorf didn’t have his wound on his chest. But it doesn’t matter since the Super Smash Bros series is not canon storyline-wise.

  • Oni

    I have a feeling Sakurai did that on purpose, as to not fuel questions. Cuz if he had the mirror shield people would be expecting his shield to reflect attacks probably lol

  • LopsidedPasta

    Hero Shield? From what game?

  • Norfair20X5

    But you make this place special! Especially when Iwata-san replies!

  • Jon

    aww, don’t give into the squares.

  • Kingdom Hearts fan :3

    But your so awesome and hillarious D:

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Whyyyyy? You are needed. You bring joy to a place where its needed.

  • WolfgangAmadeusMozart

    The Wind Waker

  • LopsidedPasta

    If the Hero Shield is the Brown one, then there’s no paradox. Link wouldn’t have fought Ganon yet, so of course there would be no wound.

  • Asturias_Knytt

    Reggie approves this comment. Reggie is also wanted by child protection agencies.*

    * This is a lie. Do not sue. I am poor.

  • Asturias_Knytt

    White shadow…

  • Mario

    Who are you going to hire?

  • Shigeru Miyamoto

    I remember as a boy, playing in the woods and pretending to save a princess … now that princess is a strong warrior!

  • Shigeru Miyamoto

    i have a new game coming out, I came up with the idea after one of drinking with Reggie during my visit to America. I hope you all enjoy what i have to share.
