Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS Thread 2: Where Pilotwings is apparently Minecraft

"Pic of the day. Mario Bros., your days are numbered! Donkey Kong in the current build is super strong…but we'll be looking at the battle records when balancing out the characters, so nobody knows how he will turn out in the end."

I bet Ridley flies back and forth between different walls so it would make the stage more dynamic.

..or that could be the same hole with a slightly different angle lol.
 
Sakurai's interpretation of strong may be different from competitive, "tier"-related perceptions of strong. After all, the dude "balanced" Brawl. Like he says, we'll just have to wait and see.
Well I never really believed in tier and strength and all that. If your good with a character they are strong for you is my motto. Donkey is not strong for me :/ So is link but I never really gave them the time.

Thinking about it now... DK is probably the most consistent character in terms of tier-placement. He's been mid-tier in all 3 games, I believe.

I found DK most fun in 64, though I slowly moved on to Bowser and Ike as my go-to heavy hitters. If Sakurai tweaks him up this time around, I may just pick him back up. c:
