Today\’s official Super Smash Bros. website update is a screenshot from the 3DS edition of the upcoming Nintendo all-star title. In it, Megaman and Pit face off on Battlefield. Megaman elects to use his slide kick to dodge Pit\’s arrow.
It seems like Megaman is able to cleanly dodge some projectiles using this slide kick. While Pit\’s normal arrow will go right over his head, will a directed arrow clip him? Surely Fox and Falco\’s lasers may blast right by him, but he\’ll need some good timing to dodge other projectiles like Mario\’s fireballs. Still other attacks like a fully charged Charge Beam shot from Samus or a Pikmin from Olimar will likely stop him dead in his tracks.
As it stands, this attack seems to be his down-tilt attack, not his dash attack (which, from what has been gathered from trailers and screenshots, will be his top spin move). And, of course, while this screenshot is on the 3DS, he will indeed also have this move in the Wii U version.
