Smash fans are fortunate that director Masahiro Sakurai shares daily pics of Super Smash Bros For Wii U and 3DS.  At least with Sakurai’s “Pic of the Day” updates, fans can get daily appetizers before the main course arrives during the holiday season.

Yesterdays Miiverse post revealed more information on the new item, Special Flag. Sakurai says that the Special Flag can grant the player with either an additional KO count or an extra life… That is if you can find an opportunity to raise the item.

Today, Sakurai confirmed the return of Meta Knight in Super Smash Bros For Wii U/3DS. Earlier this week, Sakurai teased Meta Knight, with an impostor Mii Fighter wearing his famous mask. Luckily for anxious fans, Sakurai has now confirmed his great return. Also, his trusted warship, Battleship Halberd will be back as a stage.

Meta Knight was widely regarded as broken in Brawl, thankfully, some changes were made to make him a little less powerful in the new game. Sakurai says that his Up Special move, the Shuttle Loop, will no longer glide and the attack now slashes twice while spinning a “large loop.”

I was never a huge fan of Meta Knight, but I do appreciate his presence in Super Smash Bros. Are you excited for the return of Meta Knight in Super Smash Bros? Or did you despise his dominance in Brawl’s meta-game, and would have liked for him to be excluded? Let me know!

Please check out the screenshots below and read Sakurai’s commentary:

Pic of the day. “Looks like there was an impostor in the earlier posts, so I introduced him to my sword!” …I’ll leave it up to your imagination if he really said that or not. The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!! We didn’t forget the Battleship Halberd either!!

Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.

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.
