Smashcast 18: Metaknight, Limited Edition announcements and Gameboys

Veteran character returns, two new stages, new modes and some old school Japanese references.

Thanks for tuning in to Smashcast! This episode contains:

  • Meta Knight is back in Smash Bros! And he looks like he has been slightly nerfed (or at least his up + b has):
    Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move”
  • A Gameboy stage – which looks like it may contain a heart stopping amount of nostalgiaGO GAME BOY: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS will include a stage based on one of Nintendo's most iconic platforms.
  • A 3DS Paper Mario stage has been confirmed – featuring background and references from Sticker Star and Thousand Year Door zlCfzSOqcm4ENc3A8R
  • Trophies can be unlocked using Play Coins (finally something to spend them on!)
  • New item: Special Flag, which will grant boons attracting a King Of The Hill style gameplay  
  • Two obscure Assist trophies – Takamaru and the prince from The Frog For Whom the Bell Tolls
  • A new “beat up an object a lot and lob it horizontally across a stage” mode!
  • Check out the supercool trailer for the European exclusive (so far) Super Smash Bros 3DS XL
