fairy In today’s daily screenshot for Super Smash Bros. Wii U, a brand new item was revealed: a fairy in a bottle! According to Masahiro Sakurai, the man at the helm of the Smash Bros. project, the bottle can heal those who have even accumulated over 100% damage. It is unclear if this heals fighters completely, but it is a great subtle tribute towards the Zelda series.

“Pic of the day. Hey look, a bottle!! This is a special item that can even heal fighters who have accumulated over 100% damage.”

    Love the reference to Mario 3D World

      I think the thing at the upper-right corner is Mario Spaceship, so maybe it’s SMG and not SM3DW. Then again, you could be talking about something else, in which case, my bad.

        Bowser also trapped fairies in a bottle, so the pic is fitting for him.

          Huh. I guess that makes sense.

  • So basically they had to bring back an item that heals a player completely…. here’s hoping that isn’t the case though and at most it heals 150% of damage.

    Originally the Heart Container in the first SMB used to heal a player completely but since Melee they fixed that so both the Maxim Tomato and Heart Container were much more balanced (since having an item that completely heals a player is over the top).

    A cool reference, but then again it’s just going to be another item to turn off in game.

      Oh, the old times when a computer grabbed a Full-Heal item. Almost every time that happened: ” ‘That’s it. I’m done.’ *shuts down N64* “

    If you don’t want to have an item that heals completely, then just turn it off or don’t use items at all.
