News Flash! Smash Bros. Dojo: Captain Falcon

Hello! We are working very hard on translating the Melee website. We decided to ramp up our translation focus on the character introduction pages in order to give everyone a better picture of Melee, and its’ character.

All comments were originally written by Sakurai himself.  Originally pictures were given their own page, but for the sake of brevity we combined the translations. The original page can be accessed here.

Captain Falcon:
Updated: August 4th, 2001

The man who runs at the speed of sound, Captain Falcon!captain_pinup

This is a pretty detailed topic, but in general, all characters have their attacks come out quicker compared to the last game.

However, I’ve intentionally made Falcon’s moves as fast as they were in the last game, so compared to the other characters, he’s a bit sluggish in that regard.

But, to compensate, I’ve increased his power and dash speed, and he’s become a more lively character, I think.

He’s a lot of fun.

I’m not done balancing , though, so I don’t know how he’ll end up in the end…
