Pitfall item in Smash Bros Brawl

Pitfall item in Smash Bros Brawl

Today's timely Super Smash Bros Brawl update shows off an item called the pitfall.

The origins of the pitfall are in Animal Crossing. If you get hit by this thing you'll be slipping down faster than the playstation brand name.

You can also set it on the ground, so the next fighter to come along falls through an invisible trap door.

I've got the tie, just need those shoes.

Stocks are up?

If only I was chairman of the board.

Yea, you better hope I don't get out of this.

The first caption is hilarious.

So I'm guessing this thing can do many different things. However, I think I may have see that item before, I'm not sure where though.

No, the Playstation brand name is traveling faster downward than anything ever recorded. About the pitfall itself though, I was really surprised and excited to see it. I always loved messing with the animals in Animal Crossing with those things, and now I can do it in Brawl too.

I didn't get the first caption, but I seriously laughed out loud at how you said "You'll be slipping down faster than the playstation brand name".

This game gets greater by the day.

An animal crossing stage AND item. There is bound to be at least an AC assist and hopefully a playable character.

Never played animal crossing so the item is completely new to me. This should add a new degree of difficulty to a match if hitting an opponent causes them to fall through the floor.

I thought Tuesday was character day *sigh*.

I didn't know DK was a thief. Who did he steal the tie from?

Pitfall is going to be a kickass trap.

There has to be an animal crossing character in there.

Now that's just plain silly! Just like in the cartoons. Classic.

What a simple and powerful item.

Every single day there's something new for SSBB! I just can't wait for this game. This is going to sell out everywhere.

If you've visited the Dojo, you've seen the second appearance of the Animal Crossing leaf emblem, an almost surefire sign that there's a Crossing fighter.

My F5 is broken. I think Sakurai has lost his joy in releasing tidbits in brawl.


Master Foot said:

The headlines here always get me! Anyway, it looks like a cool item, but that will be especially dangerous on single level stages. It seems inconceivable that the Playstation brand name may die a quick and painful death after dominating for almost 10 years.

I love planting those in my Animal Crossing game. Don't you think they should release more characters?

What happens if you fall through the floors on the dk stage, would you die?
