Get a glimpse of the Bayonetta amiibo

When Bayonetta was revealed as the final DLC character for Super Smash Bros. for Wii and 3DS, we were told she would be receiving an amiibo just like every other fighter in the game. Since that announcement, it's been all quiet on the amiib...

Yet another Super Smash Bros. patch is on the way

The Smash team is done with DLC on Wii U and 3DS. Finito. Unless there's a secret NX version in the works (which is highly likely given their strategy with Zelda), we've gotten all we can get content-wise. But thankfully some skeleton crew ...

Wii U modders get Goku in Super Smash Bros.

I'm glad people are still finding ways to have fun with their Wii U, whether that means modding dopey anime men into Super Smash Bros. by stretching his skin over Ryu's skeleton; making insane Super Mario Maker levels; or enjoying the new ...

Sorry love: Super Smash scene in Spain may ban Bayonetta

Even with her very small nerf in the recent balance patch, most Super Smash Bros. players agree that Bayonetta is at least formidable. Now, a community in Spain is looking to ban her outright from upcoming tournaments. A top player, Greward...

Super Smash Bros. just got a new balance patch

Super Smash Bros. may be done in terms of content, but it looks like the team is still going to push balance patches, at least in the near future. As of this week a new update has landed (1.1.5), which brings a few changes, mostly to newer ...

Who's Corrin? A great Smash Bros. character, that's who!

I'm sure many of you shared my reaction to the initial announcement that Corrin, the upcoming player-character from Fire Emblem Fates, was going to be in Super Smash Bros. Who? Another Fire Emblem character? Oh... But, as soon as some ...

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

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 Sakurai to finally ...

 
Super Smash mods photo

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

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 character model,...

Knuckles Smash photo

Oh, a weird-lookin' Knuckles Mii is coming to Smash too

This Wednesday's arrival of Bayonetta and Corrin as the final Super Smash Bros. DLC isn't quite the entirety of the last Smash DLC. Easily overlooked is the sixth wave of Mii Fighters, Nintendo's avatars dressed in silly costumes. It's obvi...

Watch more Bayonetta and Corrin Super Smash Bros. footage

I'm still heartily enjoying Cloud in Super Smash Bros., but Corrin and Bayonetta look like awesome additions to the game in their own right. In fact, I'm replaying Bayonetta 2 as we speak because of the announcement, so they did their...

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

In her debut character trailer for Super Smash Bros. Bayonetta is said to "get wicked," but apparently she was almost too wicked for Japan. Sakurai recently shared his thoughts on the upcoming Smash characters with Famitsu, which inclu...

Famicom R.O.B., Ryu, and Roy amiibo coming in March

While a lot of fun news came out of the Smash-centric Nintendo Direct yesterday, the amiibo bits kind of slipped under the radar a bit. The publisher has confirmed that the Famicom R.O.B. (previously not available in the west), Ryu, and Roy...

Super Smash Con starts today, Brawl finals are tonight

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 most passionate c...

King K. Rool headed to Smash Bros. as a costume

Hah. A classic villain like Donkey Kong Country's King K. Rool would come to Super Smash Bros. as a costume for Mii Fighter, wouldn't he? Not like I wanted him on the roster or anything. Nintendo is rolling out a bunch of new content for th...
