Victini and Xerneas Detailed In Super Smash Bros. 4
The director of Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS – Masahiro Sakurai – has been generous lately with his “Pic of the Day” updates in Miiverse. Yesterday, Mr. Sakurai lifted the cloche on a brand new item called the Daybreak. The Daybreak is a combination item that requires the player to assemble the three pieces before the item can be used. The Daybreak fires a powerful beam that deals massive damage to the opposing fighter, however, the weapon can only be used once.
Today, Mr. Sakurai revealed more information on the legendary Pokemon – Victini and Xerneas. Unlike the typical Pokemon in Super Smash Bros – Victini and Xerneas will focus on supporting the players rather than going on the offensive. Victini uses the move Victory Star on the respective fighter that summons it, to boost the attack power and prevents flinching. On the other hand, Xerneas uses the move Geomancy to increase the launch power of all fighters, but more-so for the player that threw the Pokeball.
In case you have been out of the loop with the latest Smash Bros news – Legendary Pokemon can only be summoned from a Master Ball. If you want the assistance of Xerneas and Victini then be sure to grab the purple ball before the other players.
Please check out the screenshot and Sakurai’s commentary below:
Pic of the day. Victini and Xerneas are both support Pokémon. Victini’s Victory Star boosts the attack of whoever throws the Poké Ball, and also prevents flinching. Xerneas’s Geomancy increases the launch power of all fighters, but exceptionally raises it for whoever had the Poké Ball.
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.
