Nintendo Media | Smash Update: Unknown Game Mode Revealed

By Jorge Ba-oh 20.07.2007 37

This week's final update on the Official Smash Bros. Dojo reveals a strange series of images from an unknown game mode where trophies supposedly fight...

In this world trophies fight...

They know nothing but fighting. Fighting is the sole reason for their existence

Being turned back into a trophy, being unable to fight, is much like death

Those are the rules of this world

But...

When someone...or something...breaks those rules, the world will pay a terrible price...

Be sure to stick around for future Smash. Updates...

This update = Epic

story mode ?_? look like a opening to me

that is just great but i still dont understand the whole trophies fighting and that plane that kinda looks like the level from the trailer


Oooo.... doesn't this look interesting? They were talking about how they wanted to make a deeper single player, maybe its the story.
Also the graphics look very smooth. Did they update Mario's model?

What's the character in that last image? I don't recognise it...

This could be the way Nintendo gets extra Third Party characters into the game.

It does seem like they are using this just for that. I thought a new character was revealed. Why has there been no mention on site of this new character called Per- something?, I read about it on IGN, strangely they removed that article eventually. {LS]

Oh they left room for speculation. I want theories people!!

Could just be a nice little story mode, seems the more likly option...but who knows, eh?

Looks very intriguing, can't wait for some more information!

That looks excellent! Want to see where it leads...

Wierd....

I can't say if i like it or not until theres some information about what it is.

Does anyone notice how similar alot of the first screens are to the introduction in SSBM???? for some reason, that gives me chills....

Despite the cost of living, its quite popular.

Very spooky, myterious and interesting. Can't wait to hear more.

Hmmm... sounds/looks more like a story behind the game than a game mode or story mode... looks intriguing. Can't wait for the next update!

Its not a game mode. It's the reason why they are all fighting.

They are trying to give the series a reason for being.

Isn't this a bit obvious people... it blatantly looks like the INTRO to the game Smilie

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

When I saw this update on the site it made me all giddy. Lots of fan fiction authors thought of the trophies as fighting tools/playthings for Master Hand. I kept this belief with me as well. I'm glad to hear that it's not just supposedly about random fighting anymore; there is indeed a story behind it all! Smilie

It's hard to say, but if all the players happen to jump off Metaknight's ship in that last pic, it could well be Smilie{LS]

Well you can see the pictures anf those look rendered.. tehy dont look like gameplay... and in Melee the intro aswell.... trophies glowing then being turned "ALIVE".. Smilie
So it is obvious this is the intro to the game! Smilie

Yeah they are clearly renderd, could well be, your point about the glowing trophies is a valid one, but it could be a intro for the trophy battles and not the game itself. You would think that they would hold off on releasing footage of that just now. When they do show the intro it's going to be AWESOME with the shheer amount of players it's going to contain. {LS]

*serious work on paper mario to conduct exuse me*

Does anyone know what that last picture is of?

Anyway, it looks like the story of SSBM being extended (trophies come to life). Something breaks the rules or whatever, and it becomes more than "you lose, you become a trophy." Bigger consequences and what not. And the story mode will be to fix that and take care of the moron who meesed it up.
Not a bad little story.

What is that last picture though?

It looks like MetaKnight's ship in the background, you can fight on it in the game if my memory is treating me well. [shown in trailers, I think][LS]

Oops you mean the last pic, have not got a clue [?]

I'm really wondering what that last pic is as well.. Maybe it's a sort of replacement for Master Hand?*wonders*

Would be cool if that thing in the last pic actually 'captured' Master Hand, and that in that way the rules are broken, because not all is as it once was.. lol

Who the hell is this guy?, I know his name starts with P and I definitely have seen him before Smilie, but I cannot remember which game. {LS]
