Phosphora Appears in Super Smash Bros. Wii U

Phosphora Appears in Super Smash Bros. Wii U on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Sakurai has teased a new face for Super Smash Bros. in the latest daily update for the upcoming games.

As director for the latest installments of the frantic Nintendo fighting series, Sakurai has been updating fans each weekday with an in-game screenshot from either the 3DS or Wii U versions. Friday's one came as an anticlimactic tease, with fans initially leaping at the prospect of a new female addition to the roster, only to be shot down when he noted that it was a mere trophy.

Introducing "the most powerful commander of the Forces of Nature, Lightning Flash Phosphora," who'll be included in the game.... as a trophy.

That said, it could well be a prelude to a reveal that she could well be playable given the inclusion of regular characters as trophies as well. What a tease.

Should Phosphora have been a playable character in the upcoming games?

Not sure about a playable character as I'd rather have Palutena over Phosphora but she'd at least have deserved to be an assist trophy.

She's only really ever been in one game and didn't have a leading role, so I don't know If I'd want her as a playable character. She's not quite the same pedigree as Palutena or Pit.

Defo - I think Palutena is a must - female and staff wielding would be great!

If she's active on the Battlefield it'll be an Assist Trophy at best. We'd be seeing Palutena or Medusa being playable before her.

It is not wise to speak on subjects you do not know all facts about, nor is it smart to judge a game based on looks alone. PSN: Nintendo_Gamer 3DS: 4296-3029-7422
