Nintendo Wii Media | Smash Update: Trophy Stands

By Jorge Ba-oh 26.12.2007 7

The day after Christmas brings a swanky update on the Super Smash Bros Brawl wesbite that reveals that rare trophies may not be as easy to pick up this time round, allowing for a special item to make collecting even more challenging!

Among the many trophies are some representing the enemies that appear in The Subspace Emissary.

Like this.

But they cannot be acquired easily.

You must turn the enemies directly into trophies to get them! The item you need to do this is a trophy stand.

Basically, it's the stand the trophy rests on.

When an enemy appears, you need to significantly weaken it.

Pay attention to the damage meter at the top-left corner of the screen. If you're lucky enough to have a trophy stand, throw it at your enemy after you've weakened it!

If it goes well...

...it will hit with a thud!

And it becomes a trophy! Now you get the trophy. Whoa! What's happened?! You could say this is only possible because of the setting of the Smash world.

You can then view that trophy in your trophy gallery!

Perhaps the trophy descriptions will give you some insight into the back story of The Subspace Emissary... Of course, you can also do this to get boss trophies.

Yes! I'm definitely gonna get you today!

Since you can't get these trophies if you don't have a trophy stand, pure skill is not enough

Oh yeah, two more months left, w00t!

I like this, don't have to rely completely on luck what trophy you get, go out and get the trophy you want/need, no waiting on random trophies or that slot machine, though I hope they keep the slots, mmm, gambling addiction...

one of the most innovative updates i've seen so far.

I don't post much, but I will appreciate any feedback on the posts I do make. Feel free to PM
