Like with Brawl, Sakurai will be providing daily updates on the development progress of Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS through Miiverse.

In today’s update Sakurai revealed more details on the arrow mechanics. Sakurai has explained the mechanics quite well – so I won’t regurgitate them again.

Both Link and Pit use bows, but when they fire simultaneously, their arrows meet and cancel out closer to Pit. Besides attack power and projectile speed, there are many elements that affect tactics, such as accuracy, vulnerability after attacking, and even seemingly unrelated features like a character’s physical abilities.

    Looks like physics will play a bigger role in this SSB game, Michael.
