The Smash Bros. amiibo figures are AI-controlled

Even more details out of Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. roundtable this evening. When you use one of the new amiibo toys for the game, the character will appear as a figure player (FP) that's controlled by the AI -- you won't actually directly control it.

Instead, you'll fight against FPs to level them up, potentially far beyond the strength of a level 9 computer player (CP). In Smash, figure players can rank up all the way to level 50. Items can be used to alter the powers of FPs and level them up. Director Masahiro Sakurai considers them to be like partners for you, and says making a killer FP will be a new goal for players.

Lastly, he said a lot of Smash Bros. characters will get the amiibo treatment -- that it'll be difficult to collect them all, so we should focus on the ones we like best. But, Sakurai also added that he's going to get every single last one. Of course he is!

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...more

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...more

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]more

Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS

Super Smash Bros. and I go back a long way. When the first game was released in 1999, I didn't drive. Heck, I didn't even have a Nintendo 64 at that time. But I had a Smash Bros. addiction, and would spend hours upo...more

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.more
