New Super Smash Bros 4 images are available, via game director Masashiro Sakurai.
The director shares screenshots with fans to give them detailed information about various aspects of the game, which is coming out for Nintendo 3DS on and for Wii U in the winter.
Sakurai’s last picture shows three radiant pieces.
“Yup, you guessed it! It’s another combinable item like the Dragoon-the Daybreak,” he said.
“This is what it looks like when all three parts are combined together. How powerful will its beam blast be? FYI, you can fire shooting items while moving backward and forward. Change direction by flicking the Control Stick or Circle Pad toward the back of the fighter.
Sakurai also recently shared a new character who will make an appearance in the film.
“I…don’t know his name, but he’s the Prince of the Sablé Kingdom,” Sakurai said.
“He’s from the Game Boy game Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru (translated as The Frog For Whom the Bell Tolls), which was only released in Japan.”
“Here’s the trophy of the Sablé Prince. He transforms into a snake or a frog, and unloads multiple attacks on any opponent he catches. Keep attacking your foes when they’re trapped in his dust cloud,” he added.
Yet another new image shows a bomb in the stadium stage.
“This looks like the stadium for the Home-run Contest, but there’s no bat. Once you touch the bomb, it begins to count down. Give it enough damage and launch it at the right time…then once the bomb’s countdown hits zero…!!” Sakurai said.
“…It goes BOOOOOM! Not only will the blast destroy targets, but it’ll also cause a chain reaction by using shattered walls and bomb blocks–all of which contributes to you getting a high score!! This is a new activity that combines the concepts of Target Smash and the Home-run Contest–it’s called Target Blast! Your final score is the total you rack up over two rounds. Of course, your Target Blast scores contribute to your Global Smash Power, too.”
