Play-Asia.com E3 Hype Train: Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/WiiU!

E3 is that time of year where gamers gush over all the new titles, graphics, gameplay, and generally nerd out to our absolute favorite thing in the world: video games. We at Play-Asia.com are no different, and throughout this week we will be stopping the Hype Train at all our favorite E3 stops. Get the conductor to punch your ticket, the Hype Train is leaving the station!

Can you say "I want a Nintendo console"? Nintendo are hitting the second half of 2014 hard and Smash is a huge part of that. The fourth installment of the incredibly popular fighting series Super Smash Bros. will be coming out for the 3DS in October, and we can expect the WiiU version during the 'holiday season'. 

Similar to the previous games in the series, Smash will have up to four players controlling various characters to fight against each other. Super Smash Bros. will feature online multiplayer gameplay with two modes: 'For Fun' and 'For Glory'. In 'For Fun' all stages are picked randomly and all items and power-ups are available except for the Final Destination Stage. In 'For Glory', only Final Destination stage variations are available and will only offer a 1v1 battle.

In Addition, rather having an online leader board system, an entirely new type of ranking system will be used called 'Global Smash Power'. This system determines the player's score, which is then used to find out how strong the player is relative to the rest of the world!

Part of what makes Super Smash Bros. so amazing is the huge variety of characters from various Nintendo franchises! E3 announcements have brought us even more newcomers, to add to the already amazing cast of fighters. 

Series Newcomers:

  • PacMan
  • Palutena
  • Mii Fighters
  • Greninja
  • Little Mac
  • Rosalina and Luma
  • Villager (Animal Crossing)
  • Mega Man
  • WiiFit Trainer

Take Note: The 3DS and WiiU do not have the same stages. The Wii U stages are primarily based on past home console games, while the Nintendo 3DS stages are inspired by hand-held titles.
