Nightmare Wizard from Kirby confirmed as an assist trophy


Today’s daily development screenshot from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U has revealed that Nightmare Wizard, the quick-witted fiend who schemes to spread nightmares throughout Kirby’s Dream Land, will be an assist trophy in the upcoming game. The screenshot showcases exactly what Nightmare Wizard is capable of doing, including engulfing the stage in darkness and forcing fighters to brawl in the dark for a while. According to Sakurai, the blindness from this trophy even makes computer players mess up.

“Nightmare Wizard appears as an Assist Trophy! He will engulf the stage in darkness, and fighters will need to brawl blindly for a while. Look out for the effect before it goes dark, and play it to your advantage. Blinding and reversal effects even make the computer players mess up.”

Nightmare Wizard looks like a solid assist trophy addition for the game, bringing a hit of randomness to an otherwise perfectly calculated brawl. What do you think of the addition?
