Metroid’s Mother Brain Will Assist You In Smash Bros. Wii U And 3DS

One of Nintendo’s original baddies, Mother Brain, will play a role in the upcoming Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. Series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed the cranial criminal as an assist trophy this morning.

Assist trophies are items that summon a random character to aid the player that picks them up. In the Wii’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Metroids were one of the possible characters held in the tiny capsules.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are on track for a 2014 release. For more, check out the recent reveals of Lucario, Zelda, the Skull KidMarthSonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.

  • Dammit, all i saw was mother brain and i got super excited about a new 2d metroid... sigh, maybe someday my dream will be realized
  • And no Baby Metroid to save your sorry ass this time, Samus!
  • Martha! good very good. evil laugh*

  • Still no Eternal Darkness or Xenoblade Chronicles represented? Is Nintendo even aware of how many franchises they own?
  • I always wanted to play as Geno from Super Mario RPG (SNES), but I believe Square Enix owns the rights to that character. Let's hope Nintendo can get him in this game.
  • That's cool I guess, but why do we keep hearing about assist trophies? They're not that great. Most people turn items off, right?
  • Cool. I never would have thought of this.

  • not bad, but still kind of meh.

  • Cool, I'll see it pop up once before I shut the items off for good.
  • Cool idea, I'll take any metroid characters in any game I can get sense there isn't any metroid game coming out soon.

  • Excellent. I wanted more Metroid assist trophies and characters. I would like to see Rundas or Gandrayda added to the roster though. Also, it would be really cool if Miyamoto's new IP's Protagonist got added to the roster. It would also be kinda of a cool plug in to give it some attention/advertising.
  • I like this better than a Metroid sucking on my head.

  • As far as Metroid assist trophies go, Mother Brain isn't a bad choice.
  • Sweet. Now lets release a Nintendo Direct and introduce a new Metroid please.

  • Well that was a no-brainer.
  • Yes, energy Cheerios!

  • Awesome! I hope the Metroids make a return as well.

  • Mod

    I can't wait to play this game! It better come out soon...

  • so cool

  • *Cue 2D Metroid hype* :P
