Today’s daily screenshot from the Super Smash Bros. developer Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that Takamaru from the Mysterious Murasame Castle will be in the game as an assist trophy. According to the post Sakurai wrote on Miiverse that accompanies the screenshot, Takamaru will have a pinwheel knife attack that does great damage.
Pic of the day. I, Takamaru, have waited many years to appear in Super Smash Bros.! Link, Samus, Pit, and I debuted in the same year! Multidirectional Pinwheel Knife Rook Attack!! (FYI, I’m an Assist Trophy.)
This is Takamaru’s first appearance in Super Smash Bros., despite being one of the oldest characters Nintendo owns. Are you happy to see this addition to the game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
