A few days ago, Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the Super Smash Bros. series, revealed on Miiverse a picture of two Mii Characters wearing a Samus and Meta Knight mask, with the latter teasing the return of the character. Today the character has been officially confirmed.
Meta Knight, one of the newcomers in Super Smash Bros. Brawl makes a return in the latest installments of the series and he looks as menacing as ever.
The character has been confirmed through Miiverse by Sakurai, and according to him, the character went through some changes:
Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.
