We were first introduced to Assist Trophies in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a way for other series to join the fight, like the Poké Ball item was for Pokémon. We’ve seen a few new ones for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, such as Warioware’s Ashley, but today we were shown a brand new one from the Metroid series.
For anyone that has played any of the classic Metroid games, you will know exactly who Mother Brain is, as the final boss in games like Metroid and Super Metroid. Masahiro Sakurai explained a little about how this new Assist Trophy will work in today’s update.

That concludes this week’s updates. With Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze arriving in Japan next week on the 13th, could we by chance see an announcement for the return of Diddy Kong to the roster? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
