In a earlier update, I released several new items that will appear in SSB4 such as the Fairy and Remote Control Rocket. Later, I updated with several returning items such as the Ray Gun, Super Scope, and Hammer. Well, since SSB4 is all about taking the Super Smash Bros. series and taking the other step, I will be introducing a new key feature in items.
Alternate Colors for Items!
Every now and then, during a match, a item will appear that is colored different then it’s original item. This is called a alternate color. Much like how characters have palette swaps, items have alternate colors as well. They appear randomly during the match from crates, boxes, barrels, capsules, and thin air. Because they are different color then the original item, each alternate color has a increased stat such as throwing speed, ammunition amount, and attack power. Knowing which is which will help you gain a slight advantage when attack.
