Today’s update shows us a screenshot of the recently announced Smash Run, which is an exclusive mode to the 3DS version. Today’s picture shows us Pit scrolling down the stage with Bullet Bill’s trying to attack him. You see those item in front of Pit? You can use them to give your character special powers which will increase certain stats, depending on the item. Here’s what Mr Sakurai had to say on Miiverse:
Pic of the day. Your character starts a Smash Run as a relatively ordinary fighter. But before the game, you can outfit yourself with certain items that can help power you up early, which will give you a big advantage later on!! These items are much like the Powers you’d find in Kid Icarus: Uprising.
