Masahiro Sakurai has provided some details regarding one of the announced fighters for the upcoming “Super Smash Bros. 4” on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS. According to a report by Game Rant on Dec. 31, the game director revealed that the development team has made some improvements in regards to Bowser.
He admitted that fans did not see the evil turtle as “a strong character” in the past. In “Super Smash Bros. 4,” however, he will be much stronger as he can knock opponents off of the stage with more ease. You can take a look at the character, as well as other fighters in the crossover fighting game, in the slideshow to the left of this article and the comments from Masahiro Sakurai below:
At the moment, Bowser is very strong. He’s really strong. Fans of Smash Bros. probably never saw him as too much of a strong character, but this time, his ability to knock others out is very strong!
Aside from the forthcoming “Super Smash Bros. 4” on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, Bowser also appeared in “Super Smash Bros. Melee” and “Super Smash Bros. Brawl.” Although the villain is not as fast as other fighters, he has more power to compensate. Even so, competitive tournament players do not see him as useful as others.
“Super Smash Bros. 4” on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo 3DS should be arriving sometime later this near in North America. The crossover fighting game has twenty characters announced so far for the roster, including the aforementioned Bowser.
