Today’s daily screenshot from the Super Smash Bros. developer Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that Takamaru from the Mysterious Murasame Castle will be in the game as an assist trophy. According to the post Sakurai wrote on Miiverse that accompanies the screenshot, Takamaru will have a pinwheel knife attack that does great damage.

Pic of the day. I, Takamaru, have waited many years to appear in Super Smash Bros.! Link, Samus, Pit, and I debuted in the same year! Multidirectional Pinwheel Knife Rook Attack!! (FYI, I’m an Assist Trophy.)

This is Takamaru’s first appearance in Super Smash Bros., despite being one of the oldest characters Nintendo owns. Are you happy to see this addition to the game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    Is it a male or female? slightly looks like male?

    • RockieOllie

      It’s how most anime males look. Androgynous.

      How does he look like a female? o.O
      It’s clearly a male.

      • Alexander Kleinwechter

        yea, i see it alright, it was just the hair that got me confused

  • Gizmo

    To be Frank I’m a big Nintendo fan, but am I the only one that’s never heard of her?

    • No worries you are not alone… who the heck is this guy I owned all nintendo systems up to this gen (And still have them) but this guy? no idea who he is, nor have I ever heard of the game.

      • 00EpicGamer00

        Japan exclusive…that’s why.

  • Sdudyoy

    I’ve never heard of him, or the game.

  • Dan Hibiki

    Yeah, whatever. None of these lame fighters are strong enough to defeat a master of the Saikyo arts. The Wii U is a terrible system that couldn’t stand up to my Gadouken is it tried.

    • Bang Shishigami

      Aha! At long last I have found a true challenger on this web site! What business have you insulting the Wii U, knave?

      • Dan Hibiki

        Back off, dude. I’ll say whatever I want to say about the stupid system that I want! What are you, some kinda loser fanboy? Don’t make me laugh!

        • Bang Shishigami

          I am Bang Shishigami, and I am the defender of the innocent and protecter of the underdog! Only evil doers would dare attack a weakened console, so prepare yourself for battle!

          • Dan Hibiki

            W-wait, what? Dude, this is a comment section! You wanna fight over a comment? Through a comment? Only my taunting can do that! Just chill out and play your loser Nintendo games.

          • Bang Shishigami

            That does it! Prepare yourself, evil doer, for I, Bang Shishigami, shall show you the power of a true Ninpo Warrior!

          • Dan Hibiki

            Hey man, just chill out! Why don’t you buy us some sweet and sour pork with pineapples and we’ll talk it out over lunch?

          • Bang Shishigami

            You have proved your evil, evil doer! There is nothing more sinister than pineapples in sweet and sour pork! NOW YOU FEEL MY FORBIDDEN ART! FU! RIN! KA! ZAAAAAN!

          • Dan Hibiki

            I’m gonna bet you just round-house kicked your computer. You Nintendo fans are morons.

      • Dan Hibiki

        You say I’m stupid, but that picture of your girlfriend says I’m funny? I don’t mean to cause disagreement in your relationship, but a Master of the Saikyo Arts has that effect on the ladies.

        • Bang Shishigami

          You leave that innocent girl out of this, you scalawag! I, Bang Shishigami, armed with one of the public libraries’ computer lab computers because mine is at the shop, will again take to the inter net to stop your vile advances toward her!

          • Dan Hibiki

            Dammit, not you again! Just leave me and that guy’s girlfriend alone and I won’t use my Level 2 Super Combo Taunt to emasculate you, aight?

          • Bang Shishigami

            Never! My duty to protect the honor of his girlfriend will never cease until you have learned a very painful lesson, or the librarian kicks me out of the computer lab for yelling out what I type which seems to be happening right n

          • Ashley, are you gonna, ban em, or whatever?

          • Super yoshi

            “them” are obviously the same dude…

          • I still want “em” banned.

        • That’s not my girlfriend. It’s my pet gorilla’s niece’s nurse’s buffalo aunt’s brother in law’s sister wife. Available only on Steam.

  • 00EpicGamer00

    On, and everyone? The reason why the majority of us here don’t know who this character is, is because Takamaru was a character from a game that only released in Japan.

    • rp17

      The game is called “The Mysterious Murasame Castle.” It is like a linear, MUCH harder version of the original Legend of Zelda. It is a lost classic. And at Comic con Nintendo said it will be coming to the 3DS VC in North America on August 7th. I hope it eventually comes to the Wii U too…

  • PrincessKairi

    Stop the presses!

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    Not Bad XD

  • Zach Waggoner

    Takamaru is the series that nintendo land mini game is from

  • Joseph Oliveira

    SERIOUSLY NINTENDO! If you release Milon from “Milon Secret Castle” as an

    assist trophy. I will love you forever and buy some stock.
