The lights are on
Newcomer to Super Smash Bros. Lady Palutena was revealed at E3, and today we receive some insight into her huge attack range.
Referencing the screen you see above, director Masuhiro Sakurai wrote on the Miiverse, "I talked about an attack with a far reach in yesterday's post, but it didn't compare to Palutena's up smash attack! No joke, it reaches really far. It reached so far in this shot that even the rocketbarrels got blown up." He followed up with another screenshot, seen below, writing, "That said, if we're talking just about range, even that can't beat Palutena's power, Heavenly Light. It has quite a damage field. However, this is a no-flinch attack, which means the opponents won't react to the damage!"

Those attacks can't be doing too much damage either. Other wise I question the balancing of that character.
Yup, that's a big wide attack alright.
Now I just need to see meta knight in a trailer or screenshot
No I'm worried about the balance...
sure palutena lock-in!
She seems crazy powerful. Wonder if she'll get banned from tournaments.
I seen on the smash bros site that some characters can't change there attacks. ( Palutena included ) Mario has 3 different fireball attacks, yet some can't. I wonder who else can't.
I'm liking these newcomers. Either Shiek or Peach will be my choice tho. I kick major butt with those girls
I really like her fighting-style. She looks pretty similar to Zelda, who was one of my mains in Brawl.
Of course, I can't say I'll main with her just yet, but I believe I'll be choosing her for my first match after getting my hands on the game.
Anybody get the feeling that she is gonna need to be nerfed not long after release?
