Shovel Knight is Coming to Super Smash Bros.?

Shovel Knight, Smash Bros

Rumors that Shovel Knight is coming to Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS have been somewhat validated by a leaked Shovel Knight Amiibo.

When the Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot was announced months ago, one of the most requested characters was the blue, shovel-wielding warrior. Although a third-party character whose games are now played on multiple systems, the Shovel Knight series first started on the Wii U and 3DS.

Numerous sources claim that Shovel Knight is indeed coming to Super Smash Bros. Wii U / 3DS, and GAME UK leaking his Amiibo erases nearly all doubts. There have even been reports of exclusive Shovel Knight content coming to Nintendo platforms.

Super Smash Bros. Wii U is one of my all-time favorite games, and it’s good to see Nintendo continuing to support it. Will Shovel Knight be a good addition to the game?

Cloud from Final Fantasy 7 Enters Super Smash Bros. Wii U, 3DS

Published

Clound FF7 in Super Smash Bros.

In arguably the biggest OMG moment in Smash Bros history, Final Fantasy VII protagonist Cloud Strife has been announced as a payable character in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U. Did you ever imagine that would happen?

Revealed in a trailer during a Nintendo Direct, Cloud comes complete with most of his iconic moves, including limit breaks, an Odin summon, and even an Advent Children alternate costume.

Also a homage is his stage, which is based on famous Final Fantasy 7 city Midgar. The attention to detail to his overall design is impeccable…

Watch the full trailer and let us know what you think. Is he everything you expected him to be?

While Final Fantasy VII never came to any Nintendo system, Cloud did make an appearance in music spinoff Theatrhythm Final Fantasy and its sequel Curtain Call on the Nintendo 3DS, as well as in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories on Game Boy Advance, so him entering Super Smash Bros. is not as farfetched as it might seem.

Nintendo didn’t reveal when our massive sword-wielding hero will be playable, nor the release date for his amiibo figure, so make sure to stay tuned to GameTribute for future developments.

Nintendo 3DS Gets Blastball, a Soccer Game with Giant Mech Suits

Published

Blastball Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo kicked off its Nintendo World Championships at E3 2015 by announcing a new Nintendo 3DS game called Blastball, a sci-fi football (soccer) game that involves giant mech suits and play a lot like Metroid Prime Hunters

Rather than have players kick a ball around like they do today, they compete in giant mech suits and shoot at the ball from a first-person view!

With two teams of three going at each other, the goal (pun intended) of Blastball is to get a giant orb into your opponent’s net by blasting at it with a laser gun, using boosts and power-ups gathered while playing.

As if that wasn’t interesting enough, the net gets smaller every time a goal is scored and you can actually attack and disable the mechs on the other team.

The initial fan response to Blastball at E3 was somewhat muted, but everyone seemed into the intense action after the demonstrations were over. It looks like a fun game.

Stay tuned to GameTribute for more Nintendo 3DS news and videos.

Ryu Brings Street Fighter to Smash Bros. 4, Full Details Inside

Published

on

Ryu Smash Bro Wii U, 3DS

Super Smash Bros. Wii U / 3DS has just received a host of amazing new content, the most impressive of which is arguably the inclusion of Ryu from Street Fighter.

The fireball-shooting, spin-kicking warrior brings his full suite of iconic moves to the fight, and we have the details you have been looking for.

Design

Starting off with his appearance, Super Smash Bros. Ryu looks like, well, the Ryu from virtually every Street Fighter game ever made, so there isn’t much to say.

Smash Bros Ryu colors

His alternate colors range from traditional Street Fighter 2 colors to a couple of brand new hues.

Moves

Ryu’s trademark, bread-and-butter moves came along for the ride and look as deadly as ever. In Super Smash Bros. Wii US and 3DS, pressing the ‘B’ button does his hadouken (fireball), ‘side B’ does his tatsumaki (spin kick), and ‘up B’ does his shoryuken (uppercut).

Holding down B does a focus attack, which like in Street Fighter 4, lets Ryu absorbs hits with armor during the charge animation…

Stage / Music

His stage is also a trip down memory lane and is a fusion of the rooftop Street Fighter 2 stage and the castle stage in Street Fighter 3: Third Strike. Here it is…

Smash Bros Ryu stage

Ryu’s stage music is even more of a throwback than the stage itself. It’s a remix inspired by the interlude jingle from Street Fighter 2, and we love everything about it. Listen to it and let us know what you think…

I don’t know about, but Ryu looks like a lot of fun and I can’t wait to try him out. What other non-Nintendo characters do you think should be added to Super Smash Brothers? Let us know in the comments below.
