Today it’s time for the big boys to take center stage, as Sakurai posts a picture of Donkey Kong, Bowser, and King Dedede, alongside Mario for today’s Miiverse pic for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.
Here’s the caption for today’s pic:
Pic of the day. A group shot of the big guys. How much bigger are they compared to Mario?
We don’t know if size will equate to power in the new Smash games, but you can see the size difference between these characters is massive. Mario is practically a gnome!
We can also see Bowser getting some air time (they’re floating on the wings of a plane) so I suspect physics may not be that accurate. It would seem the biggest consideration, though, is the possible visual clutter from having so all three characters on screen at the same time. I think the distinct color schemes Smash’s motley crew has will help, but I am sure Sakurai’s team is thinking precisely of these things, which is why they made this image.
It’s also noteworthy that this is from the Wii U version, and it seems likely Sakurai’s team will even out their sizes more for the 3DS version. So, do you guys like how the game is shaping up? Let us know in the comments.
