Something something another swordfighter
Corrin, from the upcoming Fire Emblem Fates, is joining the roster of Super Smash Bros. Now, before you freak out that another swordfighter is joining the game, be aware that most of Corrin's attacks don't actually use ...
One awesome new Mii costume!
The final Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Wii U happens today at 5pm ET.
But, an update released last night for both titles has been data-mined revealing some new information, while keeping most surprises under wraps for Nintendo to reveal.
Ever since the invention of save games, losing your progress has always been a major issue. Way back then, it wasn't as much of a problem, simply because it was inevitable -- the battery in your cartridge is dead. Easy fix: r...
At 5PM ET
Before 2015 ends, Nintendo has another surprise in store for us -- another Nintendo Direct. As previously announced, this one will focus on Super Smash Bros., and will take place on December 15 at 5PM ET.
So many fans have sp...
Long live Melee?
The rise of the Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament scene has been almost impossible to ignore, even to casual players of the series. Even as of this year (year three of Luigi, mind you), Smash players travel all across t...
It's a Black Friday miracle!

In incredible detail
In the wake of last week's reveal of Final Fantasy's Cloud coming to Super Smash Bros., some people have managed to put together videos analyzing his introduction in great detail. We have two great examples for you.
What does Nintendo have left?
Last week's Nintendo Direct had a Smash-centric bombshell in the announcement of Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife coming to the game as DLC. That closed out the show, but the rest was dedicated to an array of other Nintendo t...
Not a drill
This is not a drill. Nintendo has announced the newest Smash Bros. character, and it’s only god damn Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII. The trailer up top shows both his FFVII and Advent Children costumes, as well as...
Remember, remember July 15-17
Surprise, surprise, fighting game tournament EVO is coming back next year. Here's how EVO 2015 wrapped up. It was fun times, even for a casual. A new Street Fighter V character got announced, a guy got up in euphoric victory before his match was over and lost, and they even played Catherine, the surest way into my heart.
EVO returns to Las Vegas with EVO 2016 July 15-17.
Time to cash in on that bounty
You might remember back in May the news that a Smash Bros. player had a bounty put on their head. If anyone could beat Gonzale “Zero” Barrios in a Smash Bros. tournament, they’d be paid $500. At the time, he...
As we noted earlier today, Best Buy confirmed it has the Falco amiibo exclusively. While Best Buy had a product page up for the Nintendo doll, you could not complete pre-orders. Now, you can go through with the pre-order process, and choose between shipping or in-store pick up, right here.
I hope you get the toy if you were waiting for it!
Ah, another retailer-exclusive
[Update: Best Buy just confirmed Falco's exclusivity on the store's corporate website.]
Legendary wingman Falco Lombardi has an amiibo flying to store shelves soon, but he's not landing just anywhere. There appears to be...

That Brawl pirate stage is back
Hey Smash Bros. fans, guess what? A bunch of new content for Super Smash Bros. just dropped on Wii U and 3DS.
The Wii U version of the game has had the pirate ship level from Brawl ($2 or £1.79) added to the mix, ...
A brand new stage based on Super Mario Maker is heading to Super Smash Bros. on September 30th, and it looks exactly as crazy and whimsical as you'd want it to be. Embracing the creative chaos of Mario Maker, the stage will be constructed differently at the beginning of every match and constantly edited and fussed with throughout by a stylus gripping hand like so many Duck Amuck shenanigans.
Best Buy deal
Best Buy is holding a deal that's great for Wii U owners looking to flesh out their library.
If you order Super Mario Maker (which releases this Friday), you can save $20 on either Splatoon, Super Smash Bros., or Mario Kart 8...

More stages and tournament mode
Hah. A classic villain like Donkey Kong Country's King K. Rool would come to Super Smash Bros. as a costume for Mii Fighter, wouldn't he? Not like I wanted him on the roster or anything.
Nintendo is rolling out a bunch of new...
We're half way through 2015 already

Or freeze your game in the process
Smash Bros. glitches are among the funniest. A new one, captured here by MasterOfHyrule, involves pushing the Home button before the match transitions to the result screen. While the bug varies from character to character, i...
