Details surrounding Super Smash Bros. have been trickling in on a somewhat regular basis as Nintendo has regularly introduced characters that will be included in the game’s roster as well as stages. Don’t forget Super Smash Bros. also has assist trophies, and Nintendo has just revealed one that we think is pretty neat.
The Skull Kid from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask originally release on the Nintendo 64 will be making his debut in Super Smash Bros. as an assist trophy, although we would have loved him to be an actual fighter. Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai announced the inclusion of Skull Kid on the game’s official website
In case you need a refresher, assist trophies allows characters who couldn’t make it as a playable fighter to still make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Unfortunately, we don’t know at this time what Skull Kid will do when he’s summoned during a battle, but we’re sure it’ll cause a ton of havoc when he’s around.
Skull Kid is the first assist trophy to be announced for the upcoming Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros., although we’re sure he won’t be the last one. Let’s just hope additional assist trophies are as cool as he appears to be.
