Shinu, Starball Ace by UMSAuthorLava
Shinu, Starball Ace
:iconcommentplz:

Made in Art Academy Sketchpad (Wii U)!

A Ninmenjushin character here! This is an Inugami named Shinu. Yeah, he looks pretty adorable even for a dog-headed boy, but there's actually a grim reason he's like this.

Some centuries ago, Shinu was just a simple dog who belonged to a shrine guardian. He often played ball with the kids that visited - always loved interacting with humans, often wondering what it would be like to be a human.

Then, one day, a monstrous Akumashi appeared, threatening to overtake his master's shrine. The dog attacked the fiend, slowing it up long enough for his master to cast a seal on it. However, before that seal took hold, the Akumashi beheaded the dog, taking the head to the plane it got sealed to.

This Akumashi wasn't done torturing the dog. It had cursed his head to remain alive, so it could be tortured. Still, the dog endured the pain it was brought.

Just a few months before the Ninmenjushin story begins, the Akumashi mustered the strength to open a rift back to Earth. However, someone else took advantage of this rift to free the bodyless dog and give him a new form, a chance to continue his long-gone master's work. And thus, he became the Inugami, Shinu!

Tapping into the power of the earth below, he channels a lot of power through Earth ki. Combined with his protective charms and starball (the ball used in a popular Yokai sport), he's an agile warrior, sprinting and bounding across the city and catching enemies off-guard. He still wants to play alongside humans, but most are startled by his appearance (especially with the emergence of the Akuma).

His dog behavior and instincts haven't gone away, of course. He still likes curling up to sleep, licking others in the face to show affection, chasing after anything round, snarling at anything mean, and sobbing at the drop of a hat.

Muindin, Scout No. 30272428 by UMSAuthorLava
Muindin, Scout No. 30272428
:iconcommentplz:

X-Affix character, token alien!

Muindin comes from the planet Empega, from which a chief faction of the Galactic Federation exists. They've tried for years to form an alliance with Earth, but were constantly met with cannonade. One attempted contact ended with an Empegion scout getting dissected by a government...and dying under the knife. Convinced that Earth is too dangerous to try further contact, the Federation barred them off. However, when the Fallux appeared and transformed Earth, it was predicted that this new Earth could become a hazard to other worlds, and was to be scheduled for demolition. The planet's fate was left up to a lone scout, Muindin. She must investigate the planet, see how much of a threat it is, and if possible quell any threatening factors. Of course, considering that her brother was that same scout that got dissected earlier, her judgment might be a little unstable...

As an Empegion, Muindin's body is flexible and almost shapeless. She often appears as a detective-type with a shadowed face under that hat and coat collar, but her amorphous muscles can reshape her limbs and torso, which molds her tentacles into more human-like limbs. Also good for bludgeoning foes up close or at a distance! Her foot tentacles and tail are slick enough to let her skate across the ground. With her shapeshifting tentacles, she uses a fighting style that combines brute force with dance-like finesse.

She has an attack satellite camouflaged in Earth's orbit for support attacks, like raining laser beams and tractor beams, but her primary weapon is her Rockabilly audio rifle. Resembling a keytar, it launches different kinds of sound blasts based on the keystrokes she uses. It can't be seen from this angle, but there's a disc-like module on the other side of it, which is mostly used for charging.

Interests
...Actually, this has 54 facts. But who can complain? More facts is better! And better yet, all this is told by THE ANNOUNCER (Mobus)!

1: DEFAULT FIGHTER LINE-UP
- The Wii U version has the same characters as the 3DS version, but has a slightly different starting lineup. Bowser Jr., Ganondorf, Jigglypuff, and Ness are available right at the start, while Dr. Mario, Wario, Falco, Lucina, Dark Pit, Duck Hunt, Mr. Game & Watch, and R.O.B. are still unlockable.

2: RESOLUTION
- The Wii U version is, again, in HD, which creates a bigger image than in the 3DS version.

3: 8-PLAYER SMASH
- This time, you can have up to 8 fighters on-screen at a time! However, when playing such matches, only certain stages are available. (P5 is orange, P6 is cyan, P7 is purple, and P8 is dark-cobalt) I know this has been heavily anticipated for a while, and it's got me interested!

4: BIGGER STAGES
- With the capacity for bigger face-offs, the Wii U version has lots of big stages. One such stage is Big Battlefield, an expanded version of the original Battlefield with six small platforms above.

5: DANGER ZONE
- A new Kirby stage is shown: The Great Cave Offensive. It's very spacious, and features spike walls, mine carts, and (most importantly) danger zones. Touching these will hurt you, and if you're over 100% damage, they will KO you right away, much like how you vanish by touching an Orne in Smash Run. This looks like a very fun stage to play on!

6: DUAL-PLANE BATTLING
- A new DK stage is shown: Jungle Hijinks, as seen in Donkey Kong Country Returns. Unlike other stages, it has a second stage in the background, which can be accessed via Barrel Cannons (abusing them will make you overheat). Launch resistance drops in the back area. Again, this should be pretty fun!

7: NUMBER OF STAGES
- Previously-seen Wii U stages: Battlefield, Final Destination, Mario Galaxy, Mushroom Kingdom U, Gamer, Skyloft, Pyrosphere, Halberd (Brawl), Orbital Gate Assault, Kalos Pokemon League, Onett (Melee), Coliseum, Castle Siege (Brawl), Palutena's Temple, Garden of Hope, Boxing Ring, Town & City, Smashville, Gaur Plain, Wii Fit Studio, Pilot Wings, Windy Hill Zone, Wily Castle, Pac-Land
- Newly-seen in this Direct: Big Battlefield, Mario Circuit (MK8), Mario Circuit (Brawl), Delfino Plaza (Brawl), Luigi's Mansion (Brawl), Yoshi's Woolly World stage, Yoshi's Island (Melee), Jungle Hijinks, Congo Jungle (64), 75m (Brawl), Temple (Melee), Bridge of Eldin (Brawl), Norfair (Brawl), The Great Cave Offensive, Lylat Cruise (Brawl), Pokemon Stadium 2 (Brawl), Port Town Aero Dive (Brawl), Skyworld (Brawl), Wrecking Crew, Wuhu Island, Miiverse

8: MIIVERSE STAGE
- The new Miiverse stage seems functionally identical to Battlefield, but has Miiverse drawings floating in the background.

9: PALUTENA'S GUIDANCE
- In Palutena's Temple, using Pit's down taunt will initiate a conversation regarding Pit's opponent.
- During the conversation on Shulk, Pit says "Makes us look like a buncha jokers." Sheesh, now PIT is stealing Reyn's quips!
- Chrom seems to be offended by something Palutena said during a conversation on Robin.
- Of course, any character can trigger conversations from the Star Fox Team in Orbital Gate Assault.

10: METAL FACE
- In Gaur Plain, Metal Face will show up during the nighttime cycle, and wreak havoc with his claws and laser. He can be defeated, though.

11: RIDLEY
- Ridley is a special boss character in Pyrosphere. If you attack him enough, he'll fight at your side, much like Magicant's Flying Men. He can even power up as Meta Ridley. His attacks include claw attacks, fire breath, and stabbing his tail through the stage while gripping the edge. He can be defeated (even if he's your ally) and grant a bonus point to whoever KOs him, much like using the Special Flag. On that note...Ike fights for his friends, my ass!
- FG II-Grahams, Joulions, and Zeros also appear, and can assist you if used right.

12: COIN BATTLES
- This mode returns from Melee and Brawl, in which you beat up opponents to collect the most coins. Being KOed in this mode will make you lose half your current coins, as per usual.

13: STAMINA BATTLES
- Closer to most fighting games, this returning mode has you reduce your foes' HP to 0. It's also usable in Special Smash.

14: SPECIAL SMASH
- Like in Brawl, you can customize these matches with things like:
- Stamina: 300%/Stamina Mode
- Size: Mega/Mini
- Head: Flower/Bunny
- Body: Metal/Clear/Tail/Rocket Belt/Screw/Back Shield
- Status: Curry/Reflect
- Gravity: Light/Heavy
- Speed: Slow/Fast
- Camera: Fixed/Angled

15: ITEM FREQUENCY
- Returning is the ability to dictate item appearance frequency, other than just on and off.

16: MY MUSIC
- Like in Brawl, you can set the chances of certain tracks playing in certain stages.

17: MENU MUSIC
- The same can be done with the menu. No doy.

18: TONS OF MUSIC
- The Wii U version has the 3DS version's music and much, much, MUCH more!

19: LIST OF COMPOSERS
- List of composers working with the 3DS and Wii U versions' music.

20: CDS
- Again, you can unlock more music by grabbing CDs while smashing or by completing challenges.

21: CHALLENGES
- The Challenge screen features a single sheet of 140 different challenges, with up to 5 hammers available. They're said to be trickier than the ones in the 3DS version.

22: CLASSIC
- This Classic mode has you competing in various groups. Earn a higher placing to face off with better opponents and get better prizes. Special events will occur at random, like a Rival or an Intruder Alert (when one fighter barges in to replace another). Again, you can set the difficulty with the Fiend Scale.
- You can also do Classic in Co-op.

23: CLEAR MOVIES
- Unlike the 3DS version, you actually get a Clear Movie for each fighter when clearing Classic/All-Star.

24: ALL-STAR MODE
- While the 3DS version has you face fighters in chronological order, the Wii U version has you do that in reverse. Essentially, you go from the newest character to the earliest. Other than that, nothing else is really different.
- All-Star can also be played in Co-op.

25: EVENT MODE
- This time, Events are arranged in a special map. Clear an Event to open the paths to the next ones.
- Of course, Co-op Events are on a different map.

26: SMASH TOUR
- Exclusive to the Wii U version, you play as a Mii in a board game-style mode. You roll a die, then choose a path to take. Your goal is to collect fighters and power-ups for a final showdown. You can take advantage of items and events like Banzai Bill, Tac, and Reaper. If any two players cross paths, everyone engages in a battle. The winner of these battles may get something from the losers.
- The final match is stock-based, with each fighter serving as one stock in the team.

27: TARGET BLAST
- Unlike in the 3DS version, the second bomb is bigger, heavier, and stronger. There are also three different Target Blast maps.

28: GROUP STADIUM
- Up to four players can play in Stadium modes. In Home-Run Contest and Target Blast, all players take turns. In Multi-Man Smash, the four players are all on-screen. You can also do Co-op Home-Run Contest.

29: SPECIAL ORDERS
- With Master Orders, you buy a ticket for a special match. If you win, you'll get a reward.
- Crazy Orders is different. You use coins or a pass to buy match after match after match, getting tougher and tougher the longer you go. You can finish it up at any time by facing Crazy Hand himself. The longer you survive, the better your prizes.

30: MASTER FORTRESS
- Like in 3DS Classic, high-enough Intensities will yield a fight against Master Core, the number of forms depending on the Intensity (Master Shadow, Master Edges, Master Beast, Master Giant).
- However, there's an even tougher boss battle called Master Fortress, which is a gigantic stage akin to the Smash Run field, where you have to go around and destroy certain orbs.

31: CONTROLLERS
- This has eight controllers to use: Wii Remote Plus, Wii Remote + Nunchuk, Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro, Game Pad, Wii U Controller Pro, GameCube Controller, and 3DS.

32: GAMECUBE CONTROLLER ADAPTER
- A special USB adapter will allow you to plug in a GameCube controller. There are also going to be special Smash-styled GameCube controllers released.

33: USING THE NINTENDO 3DS AS A CONTROLLER
- To use the 3DS as a controller for the Wii U version, select the 3DS icon on the menu and connect to the 3DS version.

34: CONNECTING TO NINTENDO 3DS
- Besides using the 3DS as a controller, connecting also lets you share your custom fighter setups (Mii Fighters included).

35: TONS OF TROPHIES
- There are way more trophies in the Wii U version, many of them based on home console games.

36: FINAL SMASH TROPHIES
- Like in Brawl, you can unlock Final Smash trophies by clearing All-Star mode.

37: TROPHY BOX
- When collecting trophies, they are also shown in categorized display boxes, which makes collecting them all the more satisfying.

38: PHOTO STUDIO
- Like in Brawl, you can arrange trophies for photos.

39: TROPHY RUSH
- Co-op Trophy Rush is available. It's not just cooperative, but also competitive.

40: MASTERPIECES
- Like in Brawl, there are three-minute demos of past games available (with a timer this time). They also have eShop links available if you want to play the full game.
- Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels, Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Dr. Mario, Wrecking Crew, Donkey Kong, Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, Kirby's Dreamland, Kirby's Adventure, Kirby Super Star, Metroid, Super Metroid, EarthBound, F-Zero, Balloon Fight, Punch-Out!!, Pilot Wings, Mega Man 2, Pac-Man are some of these Masterpieces.

41: AMIIBO
- With amiibos, you can create a Figure Player (FP), which adapts to strategies and becomes smarter. You can also "feed" it equipment to boost stats. If an FP fights against a friend, it will bring you the rewards it got.

42: INTERNET CONNECTION
- If your Wi-Fi connection isn't the best, you can use a Wii LAN Adapter for a smoother connection.

43: AUTOMATIC NOTIFICATIONS
- Notifications and topics may occur, so keep an eye out.

44: FRIENDS & TAGS
- Two players can join from the same console while playing online. Just go to Team Smash in the Online menu.

45: TOURNEYS
- You can set up special online Tourneys with certain rules and a meet date.

46: TOURNAMENTS
- Tournament Modes returns, with up to 64 combatants allowed. You can view all the Replays at the end of the tournament.

47: WII U GAMEPAD
- You can view the battle on the GamePad as well, but you can also display the fighters' profiles on it.

48: PAINT
- With photos, you can paint over on a separate layer to edit them.

49: VOICECHAT
- Voicechat is enabled for online play, but is turned off during the battles.
- Oh yeah. On the GamePad...there's a MICROPHONE! Gotta love Mobus's hamminess~

50: STAGE BUILDER
- This time, Stage Builder lets you create freeform ground and platforms. You can accurately shape stages into virtually anything now!

51: SHARING
- You can share your snapshots, replays, and stages online for friends or for the world.

INTERMISSION: BOWSER JR. TRAILER
- ...Whoa. BADASS. This really makes Jr. look like a legitimate threat, with the Airship theme from Brawl and the absolute curb-stomp he delivers to Mario, Mega Man, Samus, Link, Kirby, and Rosalina AT ONCE. And that's before he rallies in his Koopaling buddies! Man, Jr. just got fierce! Then again, for a trailer called "The Future of Evil", that's to be expected! Oh, and all this happens in the same moonlit canyon area that Mega Man's trailer was set in. This was probably chosen to go along with the 8-Player Smash reveal, too. And because Jr. is a starter in this version.

52: MOVIES
- All movies shown will be available in the Wii U version, so you can view them in glorious HD.

53: SOUND TEST
- Registering the 3DS and Wii U versions in Club Nintendo will net you a free two-CD pack with the full SSB4 soundtrack. The Red CD has all the songs in the 3DS version, while the Blue CD has all the rest that appear in the Wii U version.

54: MEWTWO IS ON THE WAY
- Oh yeah, Mewtwo is coming to the roster as a DLC character in 2015 spring (if you have both versions)! This Mewtwo is different from the trophy seen in the 3DS version - it's more in-line with the current design that the Pokémon games have. Hmm...could this mean that Lucas and Wolf might have a chance after all as well? Well, in any case, Mewtwo is coming!

Also, some new tunes heard in the video...

- Green Greens v.3 (Kirby's Dream Land)
- Area 6 (Star Fox)
- Boss Battle (Xenoblade Chronicles)
- Ridley (Metroid Other M)
- Sky Station Galaxy (Super Mario Galaxy 2)
- Yoshi's Woolly World Theme
- Stonecutting City (Wario Land: Shake It)
- Ground Theme v.2 (New Super Mario Bros.)
- Airship Theme (Super Mario Galaxy)
- Bowser Jr.'s Fiery Flotilla (Super Mario Galaxy 2)
- Engage the Enemy (Xenoblade Chronicles) (probably part of "Xenoblade Chronicles Medley")
