As revealed yesterday, the eagerly anticipated Tails Mii Gunner costume and Knuckles Mii Brawler costume are arriving in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS later this week (specifically, Wednesday in the US/Japan and Thursday in Europe). To celebrate, Nintendo has released a whole smorgasbord of delightful new screenshots showing off the two new Sonic themed outfits in action!
Check out the gallery of Wii U and 3DS screens below to get a taste of how Sonic’s two best buddies will look when they square off against gaming’s biggest icons in Nintendo’s all-star brawler:
Each costume will individually cost €0.79/£0.69 to download for one version of the game, or €1.19/£1.09 for both the Wii U and 3DS versions.
Will you be downloading either the Tails or Knuckles costumes (or both!) later this week for a true Super Smash Sonic Heroes showdown? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
Ever since Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing came out in 2010, people have been clamouring for the blue blur to take to the track against his rival and undisputed king of the go-kart. Thanks to the wonders of Nintendo’s Amiibo figures, that fantasy is now one step closer to becoming a reality!
Announced in the most recent Nintendo Direct, an update for Mario Kart 8 on 23rd April will allow players to gain access to a brand new set of racing suits for their Mii character, provided they have the relevant Amiibo… and among them, Sonic the Hedgehog himself! It may not be the real deal, but that Sonic costume is looking pretty snazzy – and if nothing else, it adds a bit more value to your figure outside of Super Smash Bros.!
The question that arises now though… which blue spiky thing will be the most notorious on the circuit? Sonic or the Spiny Shell? If it’s anything like how Sonic treats Mega Man in the trailer above, we may have a new contender!
Will you be dressing up your Mii racers in the Sonic suit later this month, either for a leisurely lap or to pelt the residents of the Mushroom Kingdom with Koopa shells? Let us know in the comments!
Some new details regarding the Wii U and 3DS versions of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed have surfaced thanks to an article posted on Eurogamer – including a statement from Sumo Digital deeming the graphical prowess of Nintendo’s upcoming HD console to be the same as, if not “maybe even better”, than the likes of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
That’s good news for anyone worrying that the Wii U version wouldn’t quite be up to scratch, and if that’s not enough, you’ll be able to make use of the console’s GamePad either for Remote Play or as a rear view display to help you out during heated races. Alternatively it can take on the role of a “weapon-cam”, allowing you to guide items such as rockets around the race track and into your opponents!
The other big new piece of information here is that both the Wii U and 3DS versions will support Miis as playable characters, so if you’ve ever fancied taking on Sonic the Hedgehog or one of the many other SEGA All-Stars in a race as yourself, the option is there to make your dreams come true!
It’s sounding like the Nintendo exclusive versions of this game are turning out to be very unique, so be sure to stay tuned to TSS for all the latest details in the build-up to their release!
