super smash bros for wii u  Peach and Mario hopping on Bowser and Samus

Today’s update is a screenshot of Peach and Mario hopping on the heads of Samus and Bowser. Sakurai has officially confirmed that the hopping mechanic will return in Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS. It was the mechanic that many did not mind. It was best than the terrible trip mechanic in brawl.

Sakurai on Miiverse:

Pardon us for a sec! Hop!

UPDATE: Technique is called footstooling, thanks Smashbroslink

    The official term for this technique is called “footstooling”.
    It also acts like a lesser form of a Meteor Spike, when done to an air-born opponent.
