Nightmare Wizard turns out the lights in Super Smash Bros.

Here's a new Smash assist trophy, Nightmare Wizard. Let's let Sakurai explain. "Nightmare Wizard appears as an Assist Trophy!

Blinding and reversal effects even make the computer players mess up."

This Super Smash Bros. 3DS XL is droolworthy

Gaze upon that glory above. It's beautiful, isn't it? I have always been reluctant to upgrade to a 3DS XL, but this might just be what kicks it over the edge. Nintendo of Europe announced this bundle on its Twitter earlier. This handheld comes with a digital copy of Super Smash Bros., so players can get their Nintendo fight on and silently let everybody around them know it.

Sumasshu Burazazu!

Because there will never be enough Japanese Nintendo game commercials in our lives. There's a bonus commercial below the jump. I meant to share it a few weeks back because I'm in love with the song.
