Sablé Prince Makes His Debut Appearance In Super Smash Bros For Wii U/3DS
If you have been out of the loop lately with the latest developments of Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS, then I am always happy to fill you in. Last Friday, the director of Super Smash Bros, Masahiro Sakurai, announced a brand new game mode called Target Blast. Target Blast combines the concept of the Home-run Contest and Target Smash to create a delightfully fun mode. Essentially, the goal of the new game mode is to deal as much damage to the bomb before the countdown finishes. The explosion will create a chain reaction, destroying walls and bombs – all of which contributes to you getting a high score. The more damage dealt to the bomb will result in a bigger explosion and ultimately a higher score! It sounds fun! Right?
Today, Mr. Sakurai revealed that Sablé Prince from Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru will appear in Super Smash Bros For Wii U/3Ds. Mr. Sakurai did not clarify whether he will be a playable character or an Assist Trophy, but I suspect the latter is the most likely case (judging from Sakurai’s comments). Also, Sablé Prince will also have his own trophy which showcases his Snake and Frog form!
Please check out the screenshots below and read Mr. Sakurai’s commentary:
“Pic of the day. In this Smash Bros. installment, this little guy is also making an appearance! I…don’t know his name, but he’s the Prince of the Sablé Kingdom. He’s from the Game Boy game Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru (translated as The Frog For Whom the Bell Tolls), which was only released in Japan.”
“Here’s the trophy of the Sablé Prince. He transforms into a snake or a frog, and unloads multiple attacks on any opponent he catches. Keep attacking your foes when they’re trapped in his dust cloud.”
Super Smash Bros For 3DS is due for release on October 3. While Super Smash Bros. For Wii U still has a tentative holiday launch.
