During last week’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that the highly requested Little Mac was joining the fight in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. Many wondered how he would be used due to his moveset being pretty one note in the Punch-Out! games, but it appears he has quite the arsenal of moves.
In addition, Masahiro Sakurai has told us a bit more about Little Mac in today’s update, which actually came across two posts in Miiverse, rather than the usual one.
Pic of the day. Little Mac can deliver some solid punches while fighting on the ground.
…However, he’s not the strongest fighter while airborne. Try keeping his feet on the ground and avoid being blasted into the air when you use him in battles.
This makes total sense considering that Little Mac never leaves the ground in his series of games. It definitely should make for some interesting strategies when the game releases later this year.
