    Poor Electrode, his one purpose has been defeated, and his existence is meaningless.

    Nothing that exciting, but I'm curious why there's a soccer ball/football on the training mode screen. What series would that be tied to?

    Probably Super Mario Strikers.

    Also, Soccer Ball?

    I thought Strikers was now all about the X-TREME METAL ball, but that sounds reasonable to me. Sure it could be any sports game ever, but it seems like a decidedly plain object amidst the zany fire flowers and Mr. Saturns and so forth for it to be tied to nothing relatively big.

    Of course, it could also be...MegaMan Soccer!

    I don't think it said anywhere that all items have to come directly from a game. For example, Food, or the Smoke Ball, or the Gooey Bomb, or the Cracker Launcher. It's probably just a regular old soccer ball.

    Electrode is such a pussy. Voltorb wouldn't do that shit ever. Why? Voltorb is hardcore.

    If he didn't explode he'd be like "Well, YOU GOT LUCKY TONIGHT BITCHES, BUT I'm STILL GOING TO ROLLOUT ON YOUR PUNKASSES."

    I can guess how it works.


    You cannot pick the ball up.
    When you grab it you constantly dribble it or balance it on your head. This is based on wether you grab the ball in the air or the ground . Shooting it from the ground make a fast straightforward projectile.
    Bouncing it off your head allows you to hit it again in midair launching it at an angle appropriate to where you connect.

    Well, I have been trying to figure out how they are going to set Waluigi's move-set (He has to be in it if Wario is.) and I am beginning to think that they could make a unique Strikers theme for him.

    00C8000000194716.jpg

    Neutral B - Charge Shot: Waluigi kicks his leg up behind him and a soccer ball spawns beneath him. The longer you hold b the harder he kicks that ball. Also, it bounces off things.

    Down B - Headbutt: Basic knockback ability. Can get extra knockback if hit at the peak of the headbutt.

    Up B - Backflip Kick: Waluigi launches himself into the air! Spinning once, he releases a devastating kick upwards! Decent recovery, but above average damage for an Up B.

    Side B - Sliding Kick: Waluigi slides accross the ground with his leg extended, knocking people up into the air! Like Fox's, but slower and easier to control.

    Final Smash - Super Waluigi Striker Move: I never played SMS, but I am sure he has some kind of an ultra move. This can be it!

    Hell, his taunts could be anything from Bouncing a ball on head to doing the W salute (like Wario)

    I alreayd knew about the smart bomb from the same video on youtube (of the E3 demo) that showed Sonic's Final Smash, as well as a spiky ball thing and an advance wars assist trophy.

    Still, that image of Voltorb is fucking priceless.

    His super was a purple trail that follows him that forms a wall. I suppose a practical use would be smashing someone off a ledge then super smash running out over the ledge then straight up to make a wall in the way so the person couldn't come back.
