Today’s Smash Bros update is centered on the upcoming 3DS version. With 11 days to go before the release date (September 13th) in Japan, the 3DS version day’s seem to be numbered. The picture Sakurai gave us gave us an insight on the All-Star mode, which will take advantage of the 3DS dual screen’s. Sakurai mentioned through Miiverse that you’ll challenge every character in the game in chronological order where they debuted to the gaming world. As seen above, Pac-Man seems to be the first one to fight against and then followed by a cast of the Mushroom Kingdom and Little Mac. Sakurai also noted that you won’t fight any characters that you haven’t unlocked yet, so it’ll just skip slots until the character(s). Here’s what Mr. Sakurai had to say on Miiverse for today’s Pic of the Day.
Pic of the day. This time, you can challenge every fighter in All-Star Mode from the moment you turn on the game!! This is a survival battle with limited recovery items and no option to continue. However, this mode will be incomplete until you’ve unlocked every fighter… Until then, you can only play against characters that are already available. This is a picture of the bottom-screen menu, with a padlock indicating that the mode is still incomplete.
Sakurai gave us an additional picture in the comment section. He gave us more information on the All-Star mode and detailed how their will be multiple opponents per stage and limited recovery items to collect. As seen with Shulk below. Here’s the picture Sakurai gave and his Miiverse description.
