Masahiro Sakurai has posted a new Image on the Smash Brothers website that clearly shows off the impact trail during battle. Here we have Link and Samus being shot off the battlefield after being impacted with a strong blow from an unknown fighter.
Impact trails were always a signal feature of Smash that dictated when a competitor had received a high percentage of damage, this could signify that the character was close to if not in process of flying off the screen and battle arena. Smash die hards would be able to tell me if I\’m wrong here but it looks like there seems to be a bit more character customisation with the impact trails being colour coded to the characters in question. More will be able to be defined from gameplay videos when they become available but until then, we at Nintendo Enthusiast will try out best to keep you up to date with the latest information as it becomes available!
