Andross confirmed as Smash Bros 4 Assist Trophy

Star Fox boss returns in polygonal form

Andross, the final boss in the Star Fox series, will be returning as an Assist Trophy in Smash Bros. 4.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed the news today by posting the following screenshot on the game's official Miiverse page.


Andross was previously an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros Brawl, floating towards the back of the stage and spitting polygonal panels out of his mouth at the fighters. The screenshot does not make it clear whether he will have a similar attack this time.

Previously confirmed Assist Trophies for Smash Bros. 4 include Skull Kid from Zelda: Majora's Mask, Starfy, a Nintendog, Waluigi, Mother Brain from Metroid and Ashley from the WarioWare series.

Confirmed playable characters returning to the game include King Dedede, Luigi, Captain Olimar, Sonic, Princess Peach and Toon Link.

New characters will be making their Smash Bros debuts too. This Super Smash Bros trailer revealed Capcom's Mega Man and Animal Crossing's villager will be playable for the first time in the series, while Wii Fit Trainer was confirmed shortly afterwards. Rosalina and Luma from Super Mario Galaxy will also feature for the first time, as will Punch-Out hero Little Mac.
