The lights are on
In a new daily post from Smash Bros. director Masuhiro Sakurai, it was revealed that the size of your Mii will make a difference in how it fights.
Sakurai wrote alongside the screen on the Miiverse, "Some of the physical characteristics of Miis get carried over when you use them as Mii Fighters. The smaller ones become speed fighters and the bigger ones are more akin to power fighters." When creating or editing your Mii, you can adjust the height and weight. It looks like those metrics won't be purely aesthetic when you play Super Smash Bros..

Was wondering if a Miis size mattered in Smash. Would be weird and hilarious if a Bowser sized Mii moves/fights at the same speed as Marth or Captain Falcon.
Looks like I'm gonna be a speedy dude. Righteous.
So I can't have a 6 foot behemoth who's also fast as hell? I like the idea of different fighting profiles for miis but wish there was better customization.
I feel like there's too many non Nintendo fans complaining about the roster. Mii's, Fit Trainer, Game and Watch etc. are all characters created by Nintendo and I'm certain that they're proud of all of them.
Just because you didn't like the Wii doesn't mean no one else did. All of Nintendo's history and IP are worth acknowledgement in Smash Bros.
Not a fan of the Miis being an addition. For me, it's the jarring difference in quality between a 3D head model pulled straight out of 2001 and the much better quality fighters.
Since it can't be used online, it won't be an issue. I just would have preferred the resources be put towards something else. I'm sure plenty of people will enjoy it - just not I.
Can't you just be happy for the people who like that Miis are in Smash?
This reminds me of using your avatar in the xbox360 version of dj hero. Just didnt fit in kinda weird
