Bowser stars in Smash Bros shots

Wednesday 4 July 2007
It's that time again - we've more Super Smash Bros. Brawl images! And this time the star of the slideshow is Bowser, serial kidnapper and Mario's ever-present nemesis. Peek at the new shots, and you can see Bowser's Final Smash ability, which transforms him into the near-invincible Giga Bowser.

Bowser popped up in Super Smash Bros. Melee, but we're promised that he'll have a different 'flavour' this time around, on the official Smash Bros website. Anyone for super-charged turtle soup?

Bowser can, as you'll see in the image above, swipe out with his claws but also breathe fire. Nice. But it's Giga Bowser's huge size and strength that rivals will have to watch out for. We'll undoubtedly have even more on Smash Bros. Brawl very soon.
