Halfway through the week now, and the Smash Bros. updates keep coming in from Mr. Sakurai. After Friday, Monday Tuesday were all Ike themed, today’s brings us something different. Today’s screenshot features Shiek and Yoshi in the Metroid stage. Sakurai today confirmed a new look for characters with high damage. When you are at high damage rate, say 90%, you’ll start produce steam, coming out of the top of your head. As seen by Shiek and Yoshi, they both have steam being produced. Interestingly enough, Yoshi has more steam on his head than Shiek, probably meaning that the greater the damage, the more steam is produced. Here’s what Mr. Sakurai had to say on Miiverse for today’s screenshot of the day:
Pic of the day. Characters that have heavy damage slowly start to emit steam. When your opponent starts to get nice and smoky, give ’em a solid attack!
