Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has teased another interesting bit from the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games, this time electing to show off a cameo character known from the classic arcade shooter Galaga.
The character in question is Boss Galaga, who is infamous for trying to pull the player’s ship in with its tractor beam and double its power. Boss Galaga will do the same thing in Super Smash Bros., though this time it will just lift you up off the screen.
Everyone knows that Super Mario is an Italian plumber made by the Japanese, but we also know that he is most loyal to the country that made him an icon. In the latest Super Smash Bros. games, Mario’s alternate costume prominently displays the American flag in all of its glory.
The news was revealed via the official Super Smash Bros. twitter account. It has also been noted that the costume was inspired by the NES Open Tournament Golf costume (which you can view here).

Super Smash Bros. releases for the 3DS on October 3rd and on Wii U at the end of this year.
The GameCube controller is what many believe is one of Nintendo’s best controllers, as it was still being used on many Wii games or classic games that supported it. However, Wii U has no such support for the great controller and that fact has left many fans upset with the new Super Smash Bros. looming on the horizon.
That is all about to change, though. Nintendo has revealed that Super Smash Bros. Wii U will support GameCube controllers thanks to a new peripheral that is being released. They also announced that they will be releasing brand new controllers for the game and upcoming peripheral.
Nintendo released a video that contains a tease of this adapter, which they have dubbed the GameCube Controller Adapter. It is a four-port peripheral that plugs right into the Wii U and supports all kinds of GameCube controllers. They even revealed a new GameCube controller with the Super Smash Bros. logo on it.
The GameCube controller was awesome, so of course I’m glad that there will now be away to continue to use it in the newest generation of Nintendo. What has me even more excited is that they are actually producing brand new controllers, so those whose over-10-year-old controllers that are showing their age will be able to get brand new ones. That’s great news.
Super Smash Bros. will be heading to the 3DS this Summer and the Wii U in the fall, but until then we’ll be getting all sorts of announcements related to the characters from the game.
Today, it has been revealed that another character from the Fire Emblem series will be joining the fray. The new character is Ike, who will be joining the already announced and fan-favorite Marth.
Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance happens to be the only Fire Emblem game that I have played, unfortunately, but I do remember really liking Ike as the protagonist. It seems to be rarer and rarer where you get a protagonist in an RPG that is truly memorable, but he’s one that really stood out so I’m glad he’ll be in the roster for Super Smash Bros.
The next iteration of the Super Smash Bros. series is being released in two different version on the 3DS and Wii U, though they aren’t expected to release until the Summer and Fall, respectively. However, a leaked screenshot supposedly shows the complete characters roster for the games.
While many of these characters have appeared in previous installments in the series, there are some new faces to get excited about. Check out the image below.

It looks pretty legit to me as most of the characters that appear on this list we already knew about. It’s Smash Bros. and that means you’re dealing with a multitude of popular Nintendo characters, which seems to be what exactly what Nintendo will be delivering in the new games.
So… most people usually publish these kinds of lists at the very beginning of the year, but hey, I’m not most people (and let me tell you, that’s a good thing for society as a whole). Anyways, the first month of the year was pretty slow, and now there’s finally some potentially awesome games on the horizon for gamers. So, without further ado (or adon’t), here are my most anticipated video games of 2014. Continue reading →
