Become a Home-Run Hero once more!
Returning to Smash once more is the Home-Run Bat. A favored weapon amongst those who still use items, the Home-Run bat is the epitome of high-risk, high-reward. It leaves you vulnerable with a monstrous wind-up time, but anybody still standing in it’s path when the fighter takes a swing is sent flying into the ionosphere. Now that it’s returned, it’s sporting a more regal, almost trophy-styled look. Some glowing yellow will add to the stylishness of it as well.
In the screenshot above we can also see the return of the black and red “Crack” effect. Sakurai showed it off in an earlier screenshot of the day saying that it shows up in moments when a hero is about to say goodbye to a stock.
And here we see the after-effect of the bat: complete annihilation. Donkey Kong’s gonna need a new set of ribs after that hit!
