Hello and welcome to Smashcast episode 8!
Smashcast is the Internet’s favourite Super Smash Bros 3DS podcast: taking you through the fortnight’s news and announcements for the upcoming Nintendo brawler.
This episode Chris has lots to talk about:

- There were also some more moves announced for Rosalina – including storing the cosmos under her skirt!
- There’s been an announcement of a Kid Icarus Level for both 3DS and WiiU
- As well as a cool new Metroid based assist trophy – Mother Brain!
- Finally Chris pitches his character for this week, also from the Metroid series – though we would love to hear yours.
