Kid Icarus: Uprising's Phosphora Revealed As Super Smash Bros. Trophy

Today's Super Smash Bros. image reveals the trophy form of a character that appeared in the recent Kid Icarus: Uprising.

The image you see above is the one that appears on the Smash Bros. site and game director Masahiro Sakurai wrote, "The most powerful commander of the Forces of Nature, Lightning Flash Phosphora!!" on the Miiverse. In a comment on that Miiverse post, however, Sakurai published the full, zoomed-out image you see below and wrote, "…is a Trophy. The detail in her scarf is amazing."

Phosphora is a boss character in Kid Icarus: Uprising. She is the lightning force of nature serving as one of Viridi's commanders.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS are on track for a 2014 release. For more, check out the reveals of the Super Mario 3D Land side-scrolling stage, a new Animal Crossing stage, a new Pokémon Lumiose City stage, a stage based on the Japan-only Tomodachi Collection, Diddy Kong, the Mother Brain assist trophy, the Waluigi assist trophy, LucarioZelda, the Skull KidMarthSonic, a redesigned Ray Gun, the 3DS Mii Plaza, and a male Wii Fit trainer.

  • I never finished KI:U. I think the controls are what got to me.
  • Umm... Any chance this game will have an Online Mutiplayer BETA on the Eshop for Wii U, Sakurai?!! WHERES THE DEMO? (And Sonic better be unlocked from the start in this game!).

  • I wish Nintendo would quit playing and give us a release date for Smash Bros. Thats when I'll buy my WiiU, when Smash Bros is released.....or if Nintendo EVER makes another Zelda.
  • This trickle of inane information is getting old. I'm sure some people are excited to find out assist trophies, but to me, this is like revealing the alternate colors for characters who are already included. Which leads me to my next question... Which color alternative will Mario have?
  • BOO! Hey Nintendo where are all the games that people want?
  • Kid Icarus Uprising was so much fun. This really makes me want to play it again.

  • Wow. I'm really becoming more and more distraught about not owning a Wii U. I'm not going to be able to experience possibly the greatest nintendo game ever. (Epic Sigh)

  • yay? this trickle of information is getting old, who gives a *** about assist trophies?
  • She could have been a support trophy or something :/

  • A trophy of a playable character I hope, every other character revealed so far were either expected or just lame, that goes for Megaman as well.
  • Awesome trophy.

  • Nintendo really ticks me off with this kind of info. Where are the actual games??? I bought a WiiU and all I play are old Wii games because Nintendo is slower than molasses getting out exclusives gamers actually want. If they would just release a new Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Smash Bros., a new Mario World (or Super Mario Sunshine 2), Mario Kart 8...their consoles would sell faster than a teenage boy's "first time".
  • Who gives a Fuuunk!!!! I LOOOOVE SSBB but this is out of control that this kind of material is being featured. I dont know if im hating or not because this just seems unreal that trophies are being featured now. Cant wait for the game to come out but at this rate I would not be surprised if Game Informer starts featuring new burn cards for Titan Fall or mechanical tanooki suits upgrtades for the next Mario. Especially with GDC going on.
  • Mod
    The heck? What's Ragyo Kiryuin doing in Sma--- Oops, wrong one...
  • Awesome!

  • She is one of the more interesting characters in Uprising.

  • My Mind went straight to Kill La Kill lol
