July 24, 2013 Smash4 - Pit battles Villager.jpg Pic of the day. Right back atcha! Miiverse Icon.png
July 25, 2013 Olimar and DK.jpg Pic of the day. The tin lift somehow leaves a lasting impression. Miiverse Icon.png
July 26, 2013 SSB4 daily image 26-07-2013.jpg Pic of the day. The impact-launch effect has been powered up. The assigned color makes it clear which player will get points in the event of a KO. Confirmed a new aesthetic effect, where a launched character's launch trail color indicates which player will be credited with the KO if they pass a blast line before being hit by another player. Miiverse Icon.png
July 29, 2013 Stretching DK.jpg Pic of the day. Let's stretch our backs. Miiverse Icon.png

July 30, 2013 None.png The “pic of the day” originally started as a fun internal update for the people developing the game - we would put up a daily shot on our own corporate website. We soon decided that we wanted to share the fun with the general public, so that’s where we are today. Please keep in mind, though, that this is just meant to be a little bonus feature - we'll continue to release other information about the game on the website. Posted separate from the regular daily pictures, without an image. Miiverse Icon.png
July 31, 2013 Dazed.jpg Pic of the day. Dazed… Miiverse Icon.png

This island looks familiar!
Confirmed the stage later known as Pilotwings. Miiverse Icon.png
August 7, 2013 Olimar Kirby SSB4-U sizes.jpg Pic of the day. Two that are actually not so tall. Kirby's about 8 inches high, Captain Olimar maybe a little over an inch. Sakurai shows how the Smash series doesn't stay true to scale, with the supposed to be taller Kirby being shown as smaller than Olimar. This pic of the day was later replaced with the below image after the Nintendo Direct. Miiverse Icon.png
August 7, 2013 SSB4 daily image 07-08-2013.jpg A REAL pic of the day--Luigi joins the battle! In prior games, we've never introduced Luigi before release, but why not? This is the "Year of Luigi," after all. Posted midday as a new pic of the day, after the day's Nintendo Direct confirmed Luigi's return. Sakurai additionally acknowledges how this is the first time Luigi has been revealed before the game's release. Miiverse Icon.png
August 8, 2013 Wii Fit Trainer August 8.jpg Pic of the day.
Take a deep breath…
Miiverse Icon.png
August 9, 2013 SSB4 Wii U Luigi Down Taunt.jpg Pic of the day. Oh well… Confirmed Luigi will retain his down taunt meteor smash. Miiverse Icon.png
August 12, 2013 Gerudo Valley Fire.jpg Pic of the day. A big fire breaks out in Gerudo Valley. Epona, help! This showed off an event that can occur in the 3DS's Gerudo Valley stage. Miiverse Icon.png
August 13, 2013 Crash Bomber.jpg Pic of the day. A BOMB! Miiverse Icon.png
August 14, 2013 Smash.4 - Pilotwings Stage-2.jpg Pic of the day. Takeoff! This image confirmed battles on the Pilot Wings stage will take place on a plane. Miiverse Icon.png
August 15, 2013 Luigi and Wii Fit Trainer.jpg Pic of the day. Isn't it a bit early to be worn out? Miiverse Icon.png
August 16, 2013 X Bomb teaser.jpg Pic of the day. Here's the X Bomb from Kid Icarus: Uprising. Not to be mistaken for the one from Meteos. Confirmed that the X Bomb from the Kid Icarus: Uprising will be a new item. However, while Sakurai explicitly states it's not the X Bomb from Meteos, its explosion seems to match the X Bomb from Meteos. Miiverse Icon.png
August 19, 2013 Luigi & Mega Man SSB4.jpg Pic of the day. Right back atcha! (everyone can do this) Miiverse Icon.png
August 20, 2013 Smash.4 - Pyrosphere.jpg Pic of the day. Out of the blue, here's a new stage--the Pyrosphere from Metroid: Other M! An enemy from Samus's past may appear at any second… Confirmed the Pyrosphere from Metroid: Other M will be a new stage. Sakurai's vague remark hinted at Ridley appearing as part of the stage. Miiverse Icon.png
August 21, 2013 Ssb4villagerwiifit3ds.jpg Pic of the day. I guess we haven't shown the Villager or the Wii Fit Trainer on the 3DS until now. By the way, their outlines can be made thinner or made to disappear completely. This was the first time the Villager and Wii Fit Trainer were seen on the 3DS version. Miiverse Icon.png
August 22, 2013 Wii Fit Trainer Soccer Ball.jpg Pic of the day. Wii Fit Trainer knocks in a header! This lethal move is based off of one of the Wii Fit Balance Games. Miiverse Icon.png
August 23, 2013 Pilotwings Wuhu Island.jpg Pic of the day. New and old planes makes a miraculous rendezvous. Miiverse Icon.png
August 26, 2013 Luigi Buried SSB4.jpg Pic of the day. Ahem! You mind not touching my nose? Miiverse Icon.png
August 27, 2013 Reset Bomb Explosion.jpg Pic of the day. A Reset Bomb has gone off! It's meant to return the surrounding area back to nature. Confirmed that Reset Bombs will appear on the 3DS Kid Icarus stage. They are now known as a background element that changes the structure of the stage. Miiverse Icon.png
August 28, 2013 Pilotwings Wuhu Island 2.jpg Pic of the day. A panoramic view of Wuhu Island. The stage flies around the right-hand side of the mountain. Miiverse Icon.png
August 29, 2013 Link on Pyrosphere.jpg Pic of the day. Link finishes off his move as Kirby dances. Miiverse Icon.png
August 30, 2013 Mega Man and Samus - Arena Ferox.jpg Pic of the day. The same name, yet a completely different move. Mega Man's Charge Shot is a chargable side smash attack. Miiverse Icon.png

September 2013[edit]

Date Image Comment Notes Link
September 2, 2013 Donkey Kong Mario and Luigi Pyrosphere.jpg Pic of the day. Mario Bros., your days are numbered! Donkey Kong in the current build is super strong…but we'll be looking at the battle records when balancing out the characters, so nobody knows how he will turn out in the end. Sakurai remarked Donkey Kong being an especially powerful character during the current stage of development, and explicitly acknowledged the balancing process characters go through during development. Miiverse Icon.png
September 3, 2013 Fox and Villager on Battlefield SSB4.jpg Pic of the day. The Villager has two balloons. They can be popped one at a time. Sakurai remarks how Villager's recovery works similar to the Balloon Fighter mechanics. Sakurai also stated they can be "popped one at a time". Miiverse Icon.png
September 4, 2013 Mega Man and Pit Battlefield SSB4 3DS.jpg Pic of the day. His sliding move was originally used to pass under tight spaces. Sakurai showed off how Mega Man's sliding attack can be used to slide under projectiles. Miiverse Icon.png
September 5, 2013 Skyloft 16.jpg Pic of the day. An encounter in the middle of a marathon...? Miiverse Icon.png
September 6, 2013 Pikachu and Pit SSB4 Wii U.jpg Pic of the day. Although it'll deal Pit some damage, Thunder Jolt isn't powerful enough to stop the Upperdash Arm! This appeared to be showing off some form of armor in Pit's Upperdash Arm. Miiverse Icon.png
September 9, 2013 Pilotwings Wuhu Island 3.jpg Pic of the day. Nothing to see here--just another airplane passing right above town with people fighting on it. Miiverse Icon.png
September 10, 2013 Kirby Air Hammer SSB4 Wii U.jpg Pic of the day. Isn't Kirby drawn with a familiar artsy style? First screenshot of the Mario Galaxy stage, which wouldn't be seen in full and named until November. Miiverse Icon.png
September 11, 2013 Smash.4 - Pyrosphere 2.jpg Pic of the day. The Pyrosphere viewed from above. The Morph Ball design is also based on the one from Metroid: Other M. Miiverse Icon.png
September 12, 2013 Peach SSB4 Reveal.jpg Pic of the day. Peach joins the battle! We've added 10 pictures of her on the website, but keep in mind that the game is still in development. Her moves may be refreshed by the time the games are released. Sakurai explicitly remarked that while Peach currently has her old moves, they could be changed into new moves by the final version. This is the case in regards to her up aerial. Miiverse Icon.png
September 13, 2013 SSB4 - Peach shocked by Luigi.jpg Pic of the day. Here comes my Mario…NOT! Miiverse Icon.png
September 16, 2013 Olimar 3DS.jpg Pic of the day. Here's the 3DS version of Captain Olimar and an upside down Link. This was the first time Olimar was seen in the 3DS version. Miiverse Icon.png
September 17, 2013 Smash.4 - First Three Ladies.jpg Pic of the day. The ladies compare their heights. Miiverse Icon.png
September 18, 2013 Pyrosphere-hole.jpg Pic of the day. Inside the corridor along one of the walls in Pyrosphere, a view that's really not visible in-game. You can't tell from the picture, but it's actually a gigantic open space. Sakurai showed off stage details that can only be seen with the game's pause camera. Miiverse Icon.png
September 19, 2013 Link and Peach.jpg Pic of the day. By any chance, are you hiding something from me? Miiverse Icon.png
September 20, 2013 Smash.4 - Head Jumping.jpg Pic of the day. Pardon us for a sec! Hop! Confirmed the return of the Footstool Jump. Miiverse Icon.png
September 23, 2013 SSB4 Fox Reflector.jpg Pic of the day. The speed and power of Samus' Charge Shot has been drastically improved. However, that could potentially put her in danger on occasion. Sakurai confirmed Samus' Charge Shot will be getting a significant buff, in contrast to the significant nerf it received in Brawl. Miiverse Icon.png
September 24, 2013 Mario and Peach with Ring.jpg Pic of the day. The ring is for whom? Sakurai acknowledged a strange ring Peach has been depicted with in each of her Smash appearances, that she has never been depicted with in the Mario games. Miiverse Icon.png
September 25, 2013 Mario Luigi jump SSB4.jpg Pic of the day. Luigi's jump now has him paddling his legs. His vertical leap is undoubtedly high! Sakurai showed off Luigi's altered jumping animation, taken from his jumps in the recent Mario games. Miiverse Icon.png
September 26, 2013 Toon Link Smash.4 Reveal.jpg Pic of the day. Toon Link joins the battle!! Just look at those innocent cat-eyes! The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is out in Japan today. This reveal was surprising to some, as some thought Toon Link's return as a playable character was disconfirmed due to Toon Link being shown in a photo on Link's character page as a background character conducting the Spirit Train. This was the first instance of a character being shown pre-release in a non-playable form prior to their reveal. Miiverse Icon.png
September 27, 2013 Toon Link and Donkey Kong with bomb.jpg Pic of the day. Excuse me sir, did you happen to drop this bomb? Miiverse Icon.png
September 30, 2013 SSB4-DoubleSpinAttack.jpg Pic of the day. The two heroes swing it out with a double Spin Attack! Wouldn't wanna be to the one to get hit. Miiverse Icon.png
