Super Smash Bros 4 Characters: Andross Returns in A New Picture

Super Smash Bros 4 director Masahiro Sakurai posted up a new picture today that features characters Mario Fox and Pit with Andross making a return as an Assist trophy.

This is the fourth pic of the day to be released by Sakurai this week. See it here.

The level featured in the picture is the Super Mario Galaxy Stage that has been seen in previous images released from the game. It also appears to be taken from the Wii U version.

Sakurai's pics of the day from Tuesday and Wednesday featured characters Mario, Sonic and Link.

Tuesday's picture showed off the 3DS version of the game and displayed what Mario and Link would look with and without their outlines.

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

Yesterday's pic of the day featured Sonic using a giant attack item on his opponent. See it here.

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

The new games were originally rumored to be coming out in spring 2014, according to a Nintendo executive from Germany, but the company now claims that information was based on a misquote.

Nintendo's Bernd Fakesch held an interview with last year regarding upcoming releases for the company. Fakesch was quoted as saying the game would be arriving.

"For next spring two more big license games are also announced for our TV console with Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros," read the quote.

A Nintendo representative contacted VG247 to inform them of the misquote.

"We would like to clarify that the speculation about a Spring 2014 launch date for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U was the result of a misquotation in an interview," they said.
