Shields can block projectiles (Super Smash Bros Update 10.10.2013)
Today’s update is a screenshot of Toon Link throwing a bomb at Link. Like in the previous games, shields can block projectiles. Sakurai has confirmed that there will be a small reaction on impact.
The shield that can deflect things with alittle “clunk!” is still around. There’s a slight reaction to the impact this time, so brace yourself.
