Welcome back to GameSaga’s Weekly Smash Up, our weekly feature where we review the screenshots of Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS & Wii U that Masahiro Sakurai has posted on the Smash Bros. Miiverse Community from the past week. For the week of June 30th, our first screenshot shows us another enemy that will appear in Smash Run on the 3DS. This is called a Poppant. Poppants are returning from Brawl’s Subspace Emissary mode.

Our next screen shows us the Glint Beetle from the Pikmin games. According to Sakurai-san, you’ll be able to get more “gold” by repeatedly hitting it. What does he mean by gold? Perhaps collecting coins or items?

Then we move on to a screen showing us Little Mac fighting against himself. You’ll be able to select his pink hooded sweatshirt (AKA jogging/track suit from the original Punch-Out’s “cutscenes”) as an alternate costume when you play as Little Mac. Sakurai also mentions that this version of Little Mac wasn’t showing during E3 and confirmed that there are still more things yet to be revealed like this one.

Then we see Rosalina battling a Mii Gunner. Rosalina appears to be in a Fire Flower dress which is similar to the Super Mario 3D World one. We also learn that the appearance of the Mii Gunner’s arm cannon will vary depending on what outfit your Mii is wearing. Attacks will remain the same regardless of outfit, however.

Speaking of arm cannons, our next update was about Mega Man. This screenshot shows us Mega Man.EXE from the Battle Network series and Mega Man Volnutt from the Legends series. They will be pat of Mega Man’s Final Smash move as previously revealed.

Then Sakurai-san reveals in the next screenshot that these same Mega Man characters will appear in trophy from, showing us a trophy of Mega Man X from the 3DS version.

We then get a new stage reveal! It’s called Pac-Maze and is only found in the 3DS version of the game. It’s based on the maze from the arcade classic Pac-Man. Sakurai says that you consume 100 Pac-Dots, you’ll create a Power Pellet that will be your color.

The week is finished off in the same post talking about this stage. Just like in classic Pac-Man, when a player eats a Power Pellet, the ghosts on the level will turn blue and will be able to be attacked. You’ll kill the ghosts by touching them, but Sakurai-san tells us that they only become vulnerable on your screen. This means that unless other players have eaten Power Pellets as well, the ghosts will still do damage to them.
