Screenshots, announcements, and more!
Announced on 1.31.14 representing Pokemon X and Y, Lucario the Aura Pokemon joins the battle!
In this screenshot, Rosalina and Luma can be seen in the Super Mario Galaxy stage on Wii U. This is Rosalina's down special move called Gravitational Pull that sucks up weapons and items. While this move is in use, you cannot use the weapons or items.
In this screenshot, it shows Ike and Link use the new Beetle item from the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword in the Skyloft level. The Beetle is a comical item that lifts players up and carries them in the air.
In this screenshot, it shows the statue of the Goddess of Light (also known as Palutena) in the Kid Icarus themed stage on Wii U. A while back I found two leaked screenshots hinting at Palutena being the newest playable character. (If you haven't read it, click here.) This is the strongest evidence that supports the images so far.
In this screenshot, it shows Pit and Link on the Pilotwings stage on Wii U. Sakurai tells us Link and Pit fired their arrows, but both canceled out. The arrow that Link has shot canceled out slower and landed closer to Pit than Pit's arrow to Link. Besides attack power and projectile speed, there are many ways to effect tactics, Sakurai explains, such as accuracy, vulnerability after attacking, and seemingly unrelated features like a character's physical abilities.
In this screenshot, it shows Lucario on an unknown stage. Sakurai announced that he made changes to Lucario with more influence from other Aura Pokemon, so now he can be K.O'ed easily when he is knocked out. Lucario was also announced and joined the battle as a playable character.
