Farewell, newest Super Smash Bros., you were the best


You were supported well
Feb 11
 
This is it for Super Smash Bros., it seems. All of the DLC has been released, the polls are over, and Sakurai has noted that there will be no more balance patches. It's time for the team to move onto Smash 5, or for Saku...




Super Smash Bros. sure got a lot sexier with Bayonetta around


Who needs arms with legs like these?
Feb 10
 
The Super Smash Bros. series has had its fair share of mods, but I think this just might be my favorite one yet. Modder Smb123w64gb has taken the liberty of swapping everyone on the Super Smash Bros. roster with Bayonetta's c...

Wednesday, Wednesday, WEDNESDAY!

Smash glitch lets you control eight characters at once


Not sure yet why you would want to
Dec 30
 
Super Smash Bros. on Wii U was a pretty polished game at launch, with very little in the way of bugs and glitches. Still, this has not stopped people digging around in the game seeing what corners and cracks they can find hid...

They can't come soon enough

Bayonetta in Smash almost raised the game's rating in Japan


'Sexual exposure'

Here are those great pieces of art from the Super Smash Bros. Direct


Three new challengers
Dec 16

Super Mario Maker stage coming to Smash Bros.


Battleground madness
Sep 14
 
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.




Super Smash Con starts today, Brawl finals are tonight


Through August 9
Aug 07
 
Man I love the Super Smash Bros. community. They've heard the phrase "Smash isn't a fighting game" for years on end (I used to argue on Smash 64's behalf in my middle school cafeteria), but they've remained one of the mo...

Without buying the 3DS version
Jun 15
 
Before this week, Super Smash Bros. players who wanted to use their 3DS to control the Wii U version of the game needed a full portable copy -- but not anymore. As of right now, you can go to the eShop and download the "Smash Controller" app for $0.99, which will let you link your 3DS to the game. It's something that should have been available on day one, but hey, it's here now.




Roy's not quite our same boy in the new Super Smash Bros.


He's changed for the better
