Sakurai recently announced that King Dedede will return for Super Smash Bros. 4. Yesterday Sakurai made a post on Miverse, divulging some more details about King Dedede. Sakurai’s post included the above image as his “pic of the day”, and his post read:
“King Dedede uses one of the strongest side smash attacks in all of Smash Bros. Use this attack wisely in battles.”
King Dedede looks to be a pretty powerful character in Super Smash Bros. 4, with Sakurai explicitly commenting on how strong King Dedede’s Smash Attack will be. The “pic of the day” further illustrates this point; he lays down a massive hit on poor Toon Link! Sakurai also makes an interesting comment on using King Dedede’s Smash Attacks “wisely.” Though the attack is powerful, it seems like limitations will be put into place so that it isn’t broken and abused. I’m sure that this isn’t the last that we will see of King Dedede, so stay tuned!
