First time Super Smash Bros has gone handheld:
It’s been eight years since the previous version of Super Smash Brothers for the Wii. It is being released for both the Wii U (Around the Holidays) and 3DS (Beginning of October 2014). According to reports the 3DS version will reportedly run at 60 frames per second, and support the glassesless, stereoscopic 3D available on the handheld.
Three new characters have been announced :
They are now offering more character customization to Super Smash Bros, and players can customize their characters with three types of equipment to aid in their speed, offense and defense.
They are Pac-man(pellet-munching character), Mii Fighters and Palutena(potential to be formidable in the ring), Greninja(evolved form of one of Pokémon X/Y starters, the blue frog Froakie), Rosalina(new Mario heroine ), Megaman(His attacks seem to deal less with hand-to-hand combat and more with special weaponry and projectiles).
Users can customize their character:
First off, Super Smash Bros. will add character customization. Players can make any character they can dream up and customize their clothing. They can also pick from three different attack styles: the melee-focused Brawler, the Swordfighter, and the Gunner. For the first time you can also customize the character’s moves for the first time, picking from different options to build a fighter that matches your style. Although no other details were revealed about the mode.
According to Masuhiro Sakurai, director of “Super Smash Bros 4″ “Some of the physical characteristics of Miis get carried over when you use them as Mii Fighters. The smaller ones become speed fighters and the bigger ones are more akin to power fighters.” However, customizing their height and weight is only for appearance purposes.
Amiibos NFC toys To Nintendo:
Amiibos are toy figurines that can be placed on the gamepad to bring a character into the game utilizing NFC technology. Nintendo is entering the cash cow field of Amiibos NFC toys by turning its own popular characters into toys.
You’ll be able to scan your amiibo into the game. You’ll then be able to fight against your amiibo, team up with it in battle or watch it battle other in-game characters. At launch, there will be around 10 different amiibo figures available.
GameCube Controller is coming back To Nintendo:
The Nintendo GameCube controller is the controller for the GameCube and similar to the Nintendo 64 controller, but without the middle grip.GameCube’s controller is being re-released specifically for Smash Bros. despite it being from a console two generations ago. The controller, and a USB adapter that makes it compatible with the console, will go on sale at the same time as Super Smash Bros. It is possible to play all four Super Smash Bros. games with the Gamecube controller.
A new mode Smash Run exclusively for Nintendo 3DS:
Smash Run is a 3DS-exclusive mode–a 4-player, labyrinth-exploring, boost-collecting battle game. There’s a 5-minute time limit for you to explore the field, battle enemies, and collect boosts to power up. There are 6 types of boosts – Speed, Jump, Attack, Special, Arms and Defense. In addition to standard Smash matches, players can choose different fighting modes in the second phase. Players can carry equippable items and consume them (by tapping their icons in the touch screen) to improve your performance in Smash Run.you will also come across characters from a variety of games will appear as enemies. Smash Run seems to be replacing Adventure Mode.
No petitioning for a character:
Masuhiro Sakurai made an interesting detail slip during his E3 presentation. The characters for Super Smash Bros. is already decided before development really gets started, so there isn’t a chance to add in a character later. That means a character like Greninja was set in for developement to a year before the game actually released to the public.
