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...

Giant characters in Super Smash Bros. are a glitch, sometimes

Giant characters are nothing new for the Super Smash Bros. series but not like this. Not like this. It seems that in Smash Bros. for 3DS, Yoshi's Egg Lay move has the ability to make large CPU characters even larger in Multi...

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.

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.

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]
