The hype cannot be contained: Super Smash Bros. is just around the corner!


Nintendo 3DS™ Wii U™ [Fighting]

The sheer amount of hype simply cannot be contained! Nintendo are hitting the second half of 2014 hard but only one title will Smash! The fourth installment of the incredibly popular fighting series Super Smash Bros. will be coming out for the 3DS this October, and we can expect the WiiU version to make an appearance during the 'holiday season'. 

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

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

We would be remise if we didn't mention the characters themselves! Part of what makes Super Smash Bros. so absolutely amazing is the huge diversity of characters coming out of Nintendo. Seeing our favorite characters being added to the series is our favorite thing about such releases!
