Steel Diver Super Smash Bros

Earlier today the designer of the upcoming Super smash Bros. Masahiro Sakurai announced on Miiverse the new weapon he will be introducing to the series,  the Steel Diver!

The incredible designer has taken the submarine from the 3DS title Steel Diver and transformed it into a dangerous weapon. Players will be able to use the sub-marine gun to launch torpedoes at their opponents.

Pic of the day. Q: “Is this a Steel Diver?” A: “Yes, indeed, that is a Steel Diver.” The sub from Steel Diver is now a cute projectile weapon–it launches torpedoes that fly slowly at first. – Masahiro Sakurai

Sakurai also reveals in his post that the torpedoes fly slowly upon firing…maybe not the best choice of weapon for a quick draw but it still looks like the genius isn’t running out of new and creative ideas anytime soon.

What do you make of this new addition to the arsenal?

    New weapons are always fun. Would like to see some new levels, characters and the removal of Jigglypuff.

    • DragonSilths

      Fuck you. Jigglypuff is 1 of the original 12 and will never leave. I love Jigglypuff. One of my favorite characters.

      • Jack5221

        I could care less if she’s one of the original 12. She’s nothing but a gimmick character, practically useless. I can think of way better and more deserving Pokemon to take her place. Like Mewtwo.

          nigga u be trollin

          • Jack5221

            Honestly, Im not. I don’t like Jigglypuff at all. And before someone says “You don’t have to use her” Yes, you do – if you want to collect every single trophy, do all the challenges (Some pre pick a character for you to use) Story mode, and complete the game 100% by beating it with every single character.

            I love collecting trophies and doing all the extra challenges so eventually I will have to use her. I don’t understand why people want to keep her. I know she’s part of the original 12, I have a N64 with Smash Bros, but come on… She’s useless! Either give her better fighting abilities, or just scrap her completely.

            – Im not against giving her better fighting abilities, as long as she’s not a useless puffball that Im eventually forced to use, I’d okay with it.

            If you think Jigglypuff is a bad character, you’ve obviously never played SSB competitively at all.

          • DragonSilths

            Every fighting game has characters you don’t like. You have to please everyone. Be grateful you get 3 characters you like and others that enjoy Jigglypuff get to play as her. Its like Mortal Kombat or something I doubt you like everyone in that.

          • Alan James

            Jason pretty much said everything I was gonna say. Just because you’re terrible with Jigglypuff doesn’t mean she’s terrible. She’s not amazing in brawl, I get that but she’s not useless, it’s like you don’t even know what rest does!

        • DragonSilths

          Mewtwo is overrated.

      • Guest

        nigga u trollin

        • DragonSilths

          I don’t troll Mr. Guest…and when you used that word you lost all credibility.

          • Alan James

            That comment was actually me, and was aimed at Jack instead of you. Turns out deleting comments on this terrible site doesn’t ACTUALLY get rid of them, just marks them as “guest” :/

          • DragonSilths

            Oh, my apology.

  • Ryushi

    Cool! I never played the game, but this is an interesting way to use the Little Submarine; when I first saw this I actually thought it was an assist trophy, not an actual weapon.

  • New items are nifty, but I usually play with them off… Still will be fun to mess around with.

    • Random12multi

      Even if it had this

      • That’s like a final smash for… someone… XD

        • Random12multi

          Who though? Snake dosen’t seem to be returning

          • This is the new sonic. Deal with it XD

  • Alex

    “Shooting missile slowly” has anyone ever thought of Snake’s rocket missile at Brawl.

  • Fuzunga

    Sounds like Samus’ missiles that fire slowly and then accelerate.

  • MetroidZero

    Hi, Samus.

  • Nintenjoe82

    My biggest concern for this game is what they will do to make it worthwhile to the solo player. The Subspace Emissary was quite good on Brawl but got a bit boring pretty quick..

    • jreed3842

      I’m predicting something similar to Melee’s adventure mode, but improved upon. Hmmm.

  • Rolando Belber

    I don’t know why but as soon as I read that I was thinking that the Steel Diver gun will work like one of Snake’s attacks. Then I thought if this is true will that officially mean no Snake.
    Maybe I’m just jumping into random conclusions.

    • crocodileman94

      Why would Snake return? He’s more of a Playstation character than a Nintendo character, and the next Metal Gear game will be a “Everything but Nintendo” game.

      • Rolando Belber

        Well nothing is certain until announced especially in SSB.

  • classicgamer20


  • Lusunup

    Seems like that of snakes forward special but much strong this would be intresting…

  • NkoSekirei

    they better give us captain falcon,zero suit samus,ganondorf and several characters we like back or they ll be some hell to pay

    • Pikachief

      Please, no Zero suit Samus. Anything but Zero Suit Samus. Make every other character Jigglypuff and Pichu, get rid of the online, make it 3 player instead of 4! ANYTHING BUT ZERO SUIT FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY PLEASE!!!!!

      Seriously though. Way to ruin my favorite character 🙁

  • Wiiluigi

    First thoughts on missile ahooting slowly must mean that missile packs a powerful punch.

  • PumQin

    I guess you could call it a ‘sub machine’ gun.
