Beat the rush, pre-load Smash Bros. for Wii U today

Whenever Nintendo does something Internet-related, there always seem to be issues. New Club Nintendo promotion? Good luck trying to redeem anything before the website crashes. Hot new game coming out? That's going to take abo...

Nintendo hopes to strike balance with new Smash Bros. 3DS patch

Fighting games constantly strive for the fabled perfect balance that turns the contest into a pure standoff of skill rather than giving one player an edge based on character. Nintendo's taking more steps to inch closer to its...

Every Super Smash Bros. Final Smash on Wii U

Like a Fatality supercut or big hitz (sports term) highlight reel, it does feel a bit unearned to watch. Gluttonous. 

But I watched the first and I was hooked. This game is so pretty on the Wii U. And so much more a lot of things on the Wii (all of them at that link, like 8-player multiplayer) than the 3DS. Hard to armchair fault Nintendo's choice of release order now.

The craving is real.

With just two weeks left until the greatly anticipated Super Smash Bros. for Wii U releases, the inclination to start smashin' something is becoming more irresistible with each passing day. Maybe the game's opening cinematic...

The Smash Bros. GameCube controller has a big ol' long cord

Look, we know the reason that you keep coming back to Destructoid is for the hot updates on controller cord length. We're reasonable people here (except Jordan, he insists that Hamza refer to him as "King Xerxes"), so we'll g...

Yoshi's Woolly World has a stage in Super Smash Bros. Wii U

I'm trying not to overdo it with Super Smash Bros. coverage but that's easier said than done when director Masahiro Sakurai is out there talking up a stage based on Yoshi's Woolly World. I'm only human, damn it. A human who l...

Duck Hunt's expressions in Super Smash Bros. are just the best

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, Splatoon -- today was a good day for Nintendo fans. If you weren't around for the Nintendo Direct, you also missed this fun Super Smash Bros. Wii U intro fo...

Horrifying Wii U Smash Event tasks you with repaying a loan

If only I could repay all my debt in real life by punching others and collecting the money that shakes loose. ...Wait a minute, maybe I can.  Masahiro Sakurai took to the Miiverse to explain some of the Wii U Super Smash...

136 years is a long time to be banned from Smash Bros.

Some Smash Bros. players on 3DS are finding themselves the unlucky recipients of an unfortunately long ban from the game -- 136 years. Well, it's most likely a glitch, but that probably doesn't come as much consolation t...

Club Nintendo now has sweet Super Smash Bros. posters

Club Nintendo is updating its stock with new Super Smash Bros. posters. The set of three includes art that depicts Animal Crossing, Mario Galaxy, and Kid Icarus settings, with various characters in tow. The Galaxy one is easily my favorite. It'll run you 700 coins for the privilege, and they run 22" x 28". Check them out in the gallery below! Super Smash Bros. 3-Poster set [Club Nintendo]

8 things right and 8 things wrong with Smash Bros. Wii U
by Bill Zoeker

I recently got my hands on Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo Wii U, and holy Bowser babies, are there a lot of new and expanded features! In fact, there is so much new stuff that I could hardly cover it all, so instead I am sharing my boiled-down list of the 8 most interesting things that I think Nintendo has done well for Smash U, and the 8 things I think could use some work.

Smash Bros. 3DS update vaguely addresses balance issues

The first post-release update to Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is a bit of an enigma. Nintendo doesn't give the specifics of it, just that it'll "make for a more pleasant gaming experience." We'll have to take your word...
