...Today's update: Ice Climbers' final smash. They summon a giant iceberg. By high-fiving.
I was expecting something a little more ground-breaking in celebration of Wii's birthday...
Well, they certainly will be able to take down giant old seasteamers. I don't suppose they'll put in the Titanic?
My guess is that they are saving the best for the last (although the Sonic update probably has warmed up some of his fans to buy the game already). I mean, if you would come with the best updates in the last few days before the release, you would have better sales than if you would come with the worst few updates.

Nicely put, and I understand that logic completely. That doesn't mean I can't whine about it.
In today's update? More stuff we already knew! Namely the Smart Bomb from Star Fox, which sometimes fails to explode. (Like Electrode, as Sakurai sneakily added at the last second!)
But today's a double update which makes it suck a -little- less. The bad news? The second update was about Training Mode. yaawn.
There was ONE new bit of information, though. Namely an item we haven't seen before.
A soccer ball! I wonder what this could do. Maybe you run into it to kick it instead of throwing? We'll have to wait and see.
Any guesses on what that item that Mario is tossing is?

He's tossing the smokebomb item...oh, and we get color swap today, which would be a meh update, except for one of Link's is Dark Link! A real dark link, not just Link with a black tunic. HOORAY!
According to those who played the demo at E for All, Sonic's recolors are merely different shades of blue with varying colors of gloves. No news of a Shadow recolor, but It'd be stupid not to. Maybe they were just...hiding it? XD
(Refuses to entertain any notion of Shadow being playable)
Edit: As a side-note, I think that Sakurai pointing out Pikachu's Pichu accessory (the goggles used to be a Pichu costume) may be foreshadowing to the statement that Pichu has been cut. You heard it here, folks. ;o

That's a good thing. I hated the fact that with Pichu, every special attack you used also hurt you in the process. Not by much, but it builds up and that's annoying.
And Teej, not one damn word about how the little rat is so great.
Right, I noticed that. FAR better than the lousy cowboy hat, in my opinion.
They should make a Scourge skin for Sonic.
Points to anyone who knows what the hell I'm talking about.
^ Too bad it's not canon.
Today's update? The Sin and Punishment assist trophy.
I think the only thing that can be said at this point is
MMMM DELICIOUS COPYPASTA
EDIT: So CoroCoro's got a reveal coming in the middle of December. Not sure if want.

HEY GUESS WHAT. LUCAS HAS A FINAL SMASH.
