This new Super Smash Bros. for Wii U screenshot features Link and Samus blasting off in to the distance with red and green lights following them. It looks similar to the effect that appears when a character dies off stage or is shot out of the screen in previous games.
Sakurai has said on Miiverse that this is the new look “impact-launch effect”, and it has been designed to make it easier to tell who gets the point when a player is knocked out. The colour will make it clearer when you play.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS is setting up to be the best Smash game yet! What new features would you like to see included?
