New Assist Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros: Nightmare Wizard
In today’s “Pic of the Day”, Sakurai announced a new assist trophy, Nightmare Wizard. Nightmare Wizard, a major villain from the Kirby series, engulfs the stage in darkness, forcing players to fight blindly.
“Pic of the day. Nightmare Wizard appears as an Assist Trophy! He will engulf the stage in darkness, and fighters will need to brawl blindly for a while.” Sakurai wrote on Miiverse.
Sakurai also mentions an effective strategy to take advantage of Nightmare Wizard. “Look out for the effect before it goes dark, and play it to your advantage. Blinding and reversal effects even make the computer players mess up.”
Nightmare Wizard is looking to be one of the more powerful assist trophies in Smash Bros history – it certainly has one of the most unique effects.
