Fierce Deity Link and More in New Smash 3DS Image

An image showing off some new color swaps for Link, Rosalina & Luma, Diddy Kong, and Olimar has found its way onto the Internet, where Smash fans are already shoulder-deep in new information that has already been discovered from the Super Smash Bros. for 3DS demo event in Japan this past weekend.


A portion of the results screen reveals Rosalina & Luma as the victor,while the bottom screen shows all the fighters in the battle. Rosalina & Luma have their Fire color swap, which turns Rosalina’s dress a bold red. Link, of course, steals the show with a color swap from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. In that N64 title, when Link dons the Fierce Deity Mask, he becomes Fierce Deity Link, which evens the playing field in the final battle against Majora. While it isn\’t a full alternate costume, Fiercy Deity Link appears in this Smash title as a truly awesome recolor.

Meanwhile, Diddy Kong is wearing Dixie Kong’s pink and white, though again only a recolor like the first two. It is Captain Olimar that has a complete alternate costume available – players can also choose Pikmin 3 co-protagonist Alph as an Olimar alternate, which even changes his fighter name to \”Pikmin & Alph\”.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS arrives in Japan this weekend, September 13th.
