Super Smash Bros 4 Characters to Have Combo Finishers in Wii U Version

Super Smash Bros 4 characters will have combo finishers in the upcoming Wii U version.

One of Masahiro's latest MiiVerse pics of the day features Star Fox using what appears to be a finishing kick on Samus. See it here. Along with the picture, Sakurai stated that every character will get a combo finisher treatment and not just select ones like in past iterations.

"Now consecutive standard attacks will always transition into a finishing move," said Sakurai with the picture.

In other Smash news, Diddy Kong from the famed Donkey Kong Country series was announced to be a playable character for the Super Smash Bros 4 on the Wii U and 3DS earlier this month.

In honor of the new game for 3DS Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that Diddy Kong would make another appearance in the Nintendo fighting series. He also released a picture of Diddy as his Pic of the Day in the Miiverse yesterday.

New pics from both the Wii U and 3DS versions are posted by the game's director Masahiro Sakurai every day in Nintendo's Miiverse. Two of the most recent ones featured Lucario taking on Marth in battle and a character from Nintendogs sitting in front of a television.

The new Super Smash Bros games were first announced at E3 in 2011. There is no word on an official release date, however, they are expected to launch before the end of this year. Both versions of the game will boast different trophies so players who purchase both will have some variety. The Wii U version will be the fourth official installment in the series following in the footsteps of the original that launched for the Nintendo 64 in 1999.
