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

Yesterday, Sakurai showed a neat image of the new item – Jet Rocket. The item is particularly useful for characters that have weak recovery abilities.


Today’s “Pic of the Day” is a screenshot of a heavily damaged Shiek. Sakurai also detailed a new game mechanic. Heavily damage characters will now emit steam – this is a good indicator that the opponent is ripe to KO.


Pic of the day. Characters that have heavy damage slowly start to emit steam. When your opponent starts to get nice and smoky, give ‘em a solid attack!

    Kind of odd to use steam, but just means more wins for me :)

      Lmfao, it will be hilarious to see the amount of steam once you reach 200- 300%

        yeah I wonder how much that will change the gameplay

          To be honest, the steam will make team battles and 4 player free for all more fun. I suspect players will gang up on the person with the most steam

            Right? That’ll be a sight to watch
