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

Yesterday’s Pic Of The Day – Sakurai showcased an unnamed stage – which many believe is a custom stage.

Today’s update – Sakurai announce a new item – the Gust Bellow from the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The Gust Bellow will blast away opponents with a powerful gush of wind – at this point I don’t think it will cause significant damage – but rather an item that is used to created distance. In Skyward Sword – the Gust Bellow was the key item to beat the Lanaryu mine. Furthermore, Sakurai also noted that there will be more items from the Zelda Series.

Sakurai on Miiverse:

Pic of the day. The Gust Bellows can blow opponents away with its powerful wind blasts. When someone drops it, though, the gusts run wild! Out of the new items, more than a few will be from The Legend of Zelda series. We’ll take the most interesting and straightforward ones and reformulate them to match the Smash Bros. world.
