What if Smash had MvC-style assists?


Recommended Posts

In the Marvel vs. Capcom series (namely MvC2 and every game after), you can call in one of the characters in your team to assist the character you're playing as. Some characters have assist-only attacks (for example, Jill in MvC2 has an assist where she heals you with a green herb), but the rest of the time the assists consist of an attack you can otherwise use when you're playing as that character.

Ideally, if Smash had a similar system, it should be for an optional, 4-player-only mode called "Tag Team Mode" where you can press Shield + Attack to call in your partner for an assist. In addition, some moves would need to be reworked in order to work with the MvC assist style, or in some case, some characters would have to be given assist-only attacks.

As for attacks for each character I could see as an assist:

  • Mario: F.L.U.D.D.
  • Donkey Kong: Spinning Kong
  • Link: Boomerang
  • Samus: Screw Attack
  • Dark Samus fires four energy spheres above herself that home in on enemies, not unlike her Assist Trophy function in Smash 4.
  • Yoshi: Egg Throw
  • Kirby: Burning
  • Fox: Fire Fox
