Super Smash Bros 4 Picture Reveals Battle Between Lucario and Marth

A new Super Smash Bros 4 picture was released today that features the recently announced character Lucario battling Marth.

"An image of Lucario and Marth on the Smash Bros. Arena stage. Lucario is seen using his Double Team move to prevent Marth from using his Shield Breaker move on him," read the caption for the picture.

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. Yesterday's pic of the day featured the Nintendogs stage with an actual Nintendog staring at a TV.

Sakurai, also recently revealed the first Legendary Pokemon that will appear in the upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game.

The Legendary pocket monster Pailkia, who also appeared in Pokemon Diamond for Nintendo DS, will be one of the Pokemon available to players who use the Poke Ball item during a battle.

Sakurai also stated the type of attack Palkia would make use of when unleashed during the battle, saying he will use his signature move, Spacial Rend, to do damage to opponents.

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.

Super Smash Bros 4 on the Wii U will also feature a revamped version of edge-hogging.

Sakurai released his pic of the day last week that revealed this technique previously found in past iterations of Smash Bros. It involves one player holding onto a ledge so that the other player who is trying to return to the stage after falling off cannot grab it. It will be slightly altered in the Wii U version.
