Pic of the day. Tomorrow, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be released in Japan! The players in Japan had to wait a bit longer for their release, but then again, they did get the 3DS version first. We were glad to be able to release this game in the Americas just in time for Thanksgiving in the United States.

  • Pic of the day has continued since E3 2013, and I would like to bring this series to a close today. A total of 384 posts and roughly 500 screenshots have been posted, and there's even more screenshots if you count the ones I've posted for different regions. The origins of pic of the day was sharing one picture a day of the game in development inside the company. It started out just as a small bonus for the staff. However, once we started sharing pictures with the public, it was a much tougher process. We had to be more careful to choose appropriate pictures to post while keeping a consistant schedule regardless of how busy we got, all while some people only wanted new information from my posts. It's nice to finally be able to get one weight off of my shoulders. But, we promised to create Mewtwo as a playable character, so I can't relax too much yet. I hope you'll look forward to Mewtwo joining the battle!

  • Sakurai, thank you so much for all you've put into this game and how much you appreciate and listen to the fans. I know you won't see this, but I sincerely appreciate all you've done and all the ridiculously hard work you've put into this game, and all the other games you've worked on. Thank you, Masahiro Sakurai, that we mat enjoy your greatest creation yet.

  • I want to THANK YOU for all the effort you've put into the game I really appreciate your work and I wanna thank the whole Smash Bros. Development-Team aswell! Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS became the very best games in the series and to me these are the very best games of all time!

  • It's been a fun and enjoyable ride Mr. Sakurai! I'll miss anticipating new pics of the day from you. Thank you so much for creating yet another amazing game. I look forward to the arrival of Mewtwo and putting possibly hundreds of hours into Smash Bros Wii U over the next few years!

  • Looking forward to Mewtwo and whatever else the future holds.

  • Well it's almost over now. In a few hours Japan, the game's home country will get the masterpiece they've been working hard. I think it's time to take it slow now and relax. Soon the whole world will be enjoying Smash both at homes and portable. Thanks Mr. Sakurai. It's been a fun ride. Merry Xmas and Happy New Year to you, devs team and all the Smashers out there. It's time to Settle it in Smash!

  • I'll be looking forward to the future updates like Tournament Mode, Miiverse stage, and of course Mewtwo. I also can't wait for the Smash CD to arrive too. Opinion of the Day: I enjoyed my time commenting my thoughts on these screenshots. I didn't mind not having "new information" within your posts. Thank you again for all of these screenshots & announcement Sakurai(and his staff translating).

  • Thanks Sakurai for everything you have done for everyone! Both games are amazingly awesome! I was really happy to see that you tryed your best to include as much as possible, regardless that Lip from Panel de Pon didn't get not even a trophy in this game, I'm happy this game was made.

  • I'm going to miss the pic of the days.
