The latest episode of Nintendo Direct, which can be viewed at this link, has revealed a veteran fighter who will appear in the next two “Super Smash Bros.” titles. That fighter is Sheik, and she was confirmed to return on April 8, 2014. The next “Super Smash Bros.” titles are scheduled to release in the summer of 2014 on the Nintendo 3DS, and in the winter of 2014 on the Nintendo Wii U.
Sheik has appeared in two “Super Smash Bros.” titles to date, “Super Smash Bros. Melee” and “Super Smash Bros. Brawl.” Sheik is still a very fast fighter, able to attack and move very quickly. In both of the previous titles, she was able to freely change between Zelda and Sheik in battle. However, in this title, Sheik is a standalone fighter, and can no longer change forms. This has allowed her to have a down special attack, which is a sort of flip attack that causes Sheik to knock an enemy far away while bouncing Sheik back a bit. Her side special attack has also been changed. She no longer throws out a rope, swinging it around. Now, she throws a burst grenade that bounces up and explodes. Other than these two changes, Sheik appears to play very similarly to her previous appearances.
