Sakurai Continues Posts of the Day With A Spooky Update

Though Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has released in Japan, it seems Sakurai is still intends to continue the weekday Smash updates. For today’s post, Sakurai has readied a new upload of some ghastly specters giving Diddy Kong some trouble in Smash Run.

\”Pic of the day. These two are a haunting pair. You can only attack Gastly using items, but the Ghost has a perfect guard and reflects your attacks. When you see a Ghost, make sure you use your grab. If you\’re playing with Diddy Kong, his Monkey Flip should work, too.\”

As Gastly is a Ghost type P0kemon, your normal fighting moves won\’t work on him. Thankfully, Smash Run has a lot of items lying around for you to utilize. As for the Ghost with the shield, you may recognize it fromĀ Find MiiĀ on 3DS. In that little game, you have to use certain-colored Miis to attack Ghosts with corresponding body colors and shield colors. They can be quite a nuisance if you don\’t have the right Mii ready to take them down.

Sakurai then posted another Miiverse comment, but without uploading a second picture.

\”Announcement: Originally, the pic of the day was only supposed to continue for about two months, but I\’ve ended up posting pictures until even today. The 3DS version has already been released in Japan, so I would like to talk about how future posts will be handled.


First, I will not talk about hidden features until the game is released overseas. On the other hand, I definitely will talk about them after the game is released abroad.


In addition, I am planning to continue making posts at least until the Wii U version is released. I haven\’t decided if I\’ll go by the Japanese version release or the release of versions abroad, but the point is that I\’ll continue posting for a little bit longer.


Pic of the day won\’t focus on introducing new information anymore in the near future, but I hope to entertain you with interesting and funny photos like I originally intended to. Thanks.\”

We\’ll keep you all in the loop as the Smash posts of the day continue into the rest of the year.
