The 3DS couldn't handle transforming Super Smash Bros. characters

In Super Smash Bros., characters like Zelda and Sheik are on their own, no longer represented as a single fighter that can change form mid-battle. Speaking about the change in Famitsu, game director Masahiro Sakurai said "It'...

Here's how team colors will work for Super Smash Bros. Wii U

While the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. is just around the corner, I know quite a bit of people who will be waiting on the Wii U edition. The good news is although the game is still a ways off (rumors point to mid Nov...

One modder shows how to hook a GameCube controller up to your 3DS for $12

One of the only problems I had with Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS was using the Circle Pad for a prolonged use of time. I actually got used to using the portable's controls over time, but the pad itself wears on my thumb...

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U bundle box revealed

Compliments of an Amazon listing, we now know what the Super Smash Bros. Wii U bundle will look like. It consists of the game, a GameCube controller adapter hub, and a branded GameCube controller for $99.99. I think I'm going to pick the hub up at least, so I can bust it out for Smash parties later this year. It'll be BYOW -- Bring Your Own Wavebird. Super Smash Bros. Bundle - Wii U [Amazon]

Remnants of Ice Climbers found in Smash Bros. 3DS

It's public knowledge at this point that the Ice Climbers were removed from Smash Bros. 3DS because of hardware limitations. Because Sakurai wanted complete character parity between the 3DS and Wii U, they were taken ou...

These Super Smash Bros. commercials are silly

I mean, yeah, what else would you expect? It's Super Smash Bros. Nintendo's television spots for the 3DS game feature the tagline "Settle it in Smash," which is a good fit for the series, admittedly, but I'm far more interested in that Doc Louis cameo.

Here's what you'll get in the Super Smash Bros. 3DS demo
by Jonathan Holmes

Nintendo released a demo for Smash Bros. 4 on the 3DS to Club Nintendo Platinum members last week. Pandemonium in the Smash Bros. community ensued. It's a relatively small piece of the game -- five characters, one arena, two modes (solo or group), and a little sandbag action during loading times on multiplayer matches. Don't let that fool you though. It's still got enough content to keep you busy for days, maybe weeks.

Last week's version of the demo has unlimited plays. The public demo releasing on the eShop tomorrow morning does not. That's going to be a problem for a lot of you. Unless you plan to keep the demo running on your 3DS until the game comes out on October 3, chances are you'll run out of plays before you've gotten your fill.

Sakurai explains the lack of Ice Climbers in Super Smash Bros.

I'm satisfied with the Super Smash Bros. roster overall but sympathize with people whose favorite characters aren't returning. For instance, the Ice Climbers -- they're so precious! Writing in Famitsu, game director Masahiro ...

Nintendo knows about the Smash 3DS Peach ban problem

As we previously found out, the Japanese version of Super Smash Bros. 3DS is banning people for playing Peach online during competitive matches -- presumably because it mistook her turnip for an item hack. Nintendo is no...

After less than week, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold over one million

According to a statement from Nintendo, Super Smash Bros. 3DS sold one million copies during its launch in Japan. It's great news that the series can still create such a buzz and sell that much product. The only thing that bums me out is that by the time the New 3DS hits in the US, all of the people I know will make the switch over to Smash Wii U full-time. Nintendo [Twitter]
