Masahiro Sakurai Talks About Link’s Moveset in the New Super Smash Bros

In a recent batch of screenshots, Link was seen using his downward strike attack (as seen above), a move infamous for being rather strong. Masahiro Sakurai commented on this on the Miiverse saying:

“Link’s downward strike was designed to change to a Meteor Smash when the tip of the sword is aligned just right at the start. However, it will be removed if it’s deemed too powerful overall after some multiplayer play tests.”

It’s nice to see Masahiro Sakurai actually thinking about some of the more OP moves in the game, even at this stage in production.

But what do you think? Should Links Meteor Smash been nerfed or removed? Or should Masahiro Sakurai not fix what isn’t broken?
