Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai posted the following on Miiverse:

Pic of the day. Luigi might be thinking, “Who would’ve thought I’d get to show off the Poltergust in Super Smash Bros.?!” Wondering if it’s going to suck something in? Yeah, it probably will.

Seems like we’ve got the first look at this new entries’ version of Luigi’s Final Smash. Is it the same as his crazy, crippling move in Brawl? That’s a Negative. Zone.

A wild Super Smash Bros. screenshot appears! Series director Masahiro Sakurai posted the following on Miiverse:

Here’s the Prism Tower stage for the 3DS version! The battle begins on ground level right in front of the tower.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

Oh, Uncle Andross. He really isn’t very considerate.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

Here’s a giant attack item, the Ore Club! It’s made of minerals mined on the mountain of the gods. This bulky weapon can even unleash tornadoes.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

Here’s a comparison of characters with and without their outlines on the 3DS version. They also give off a different impression in 3D, so customize the look however you like.

Along with this image, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai posted the following on Miiverse:

Pic of the day. Never bully Cuccos. Seriously, attacking them is out of the question! This has always been a cardinal rule of The Legend of Zelda series.

We haven’t seen any Cuccos in the Smash Bros. games before, so what purpose will they serve here? Are they items? Assist trophies? New Animal Crossing residents? Way to be cryptic, Sakurai.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

The most powerful commander of the Forces of Nature, Lightning Flash Phosphora!!

One more screenshot from Sakurai…

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

The Peanut Popgun now deals a powerful attack when it explodes. It’ll be difficult to hit your target, but when you succeed, the explosion will really blow your enemies away. Give it a shot when you break someone’s shield.

Along with today’s screenshot, Sakurai passed along the following message on Miiverse:

Fallen Rosalina. Strange how calm and nonchalant she looks even when she takes damage. Is it because she’s from outer space?

Along with today’s screenshots, Sakurai passed along the following information on Miiverse:

Here’s some info on the Nintendo 3DS stage called Super Mario 3D Land! First, it advances by side-scrolling…

Then you continue into the valley–it’s in 3D Land, after all. The protruding stone blocks change the angles of the platforms.

After that, back to side-scrolling. Now it gets you moving–you’ll have to trot downhill here.

And finally, you get back on rails to go farther into the stage. It takes roughly two minutes to complete a lap, and at the end you go into a giant pipe that takes you back to the beginning. …I know this sequence goes above and beyond a traditional Pic of the Day, so consider this a little something extra on the side from me.
