Pic of the day. ‘Looks like there was an impostor in the earlier posts, so I introduced him to my sword!’ …I’ll leave it up to your imagination if he really said that or not. The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!! We didn’t forget the Battleship Halberd either!!
Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.
Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed Meta Knight’s return to the upcoming brawler in his daily Miiverse post. The veteran fighter – who has appeared in Super Smash Bros Melee as a collectible trophy and Brawl as a playable character – was teased by the director a couple of days ago, where a Mii fighter wore a Meta Knight mask. Clearly, Kirby’s rival-come-mentor wasn’t happy about his mini inclusion, deciding to reveal his awesome moves to eager Smash fans today. Here’s what Sakurai said on Miiverse:
We know Sakurai loves to tease or troll many fans, but he’s certainly came through on this character’s return. You can check out Meta Knight’s official page on the game’s updated website, here. Let us know if you’re happy about his return in the comment section below.
