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



Yesterday, Sakurai showcased a fantastic close up image of Metroid – an assist trophy that would latch on to opponents causing persistent damage.


Today’s Pic of the day is a screenshot of crates and presents that would normally hold items – presumably this a symbol for the many surprises that will be revealed during the highly anticipated Smash Bros ND. Sakurai also posted a reminder for the upcoming Super Smash Bros direct.

Sakurai on Miiverse:
