Get Ready for Angry Birds in the New Super Smash Bros!

So Meta Knight was announced this morning as a playable character. Not too much of a surprise since Sakurai dropped a major hint a few days ago. If you want to see a gallery of Meta Knight pictures, click on the picture of him below.

Now onto the interesting news. (ooo burrrrrn).

Every edition of super smash bros has had a variety of 1-player stadium events.

Super smash bros 64 provided us with practice mode, break the targets, and board the platforms. Board the Platforms was awesome.

SSB Melee introduced the intensely difficult multi-man melee modes, as well as the home run contest.
Legend said that if you could K.O. 20 characters in Cruel Melee, you’d unlock Sonic!

Brawl didn’t introduce any new stadium modes. They just took existing ones and made them look prettier (aka making the polygon team into the alloy team). Also, they decided not to bother giving each character their own break the targets level, which, in my opinion, was really really lazy.

But now it seems we’ll be getting a whole new challenge once again! As much as I wish they’d bring back Board the Platforms and character-based target stages, this new one does look pretty cool.

It’s called Target Blast! and it’s basically angry birds with a massive attackable bomb.
Here’s how they describe it on the Super Smash Bros Website:

“In Target Blast, players have a bomb that will explode 10 seconds after being hit. They must launch this bomb to destroy blocks and targets and score points.”

“Getting a good score depends on launching the bomb to areas rich with targets, getting the timing of the explosion just right, and using the explosive blocks found around the stage to maximum effect.”

You see those red and green targets up there? Instantly reminds me of the big and little pigs in Angry Birds. Not to say there’s anything wrong with that. It’s a billion dollar idea, and it should be even more fun on Super Smash Bros. I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a create your own Target Blast stage option that allows you to upload it and share it with other players. I just hope they put the time in to give each character his own break the targets level.
