Super Smash Bros.


Season of Smash continues on 5th December with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and two waves of amiibo on 28th November and 19th December

7th October 2014 – Strong launches in Europe, the Americas and Australia* have propelled the cumulative sales total for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS to more than 2.8 million worldwide. This first-ever portable instalment of the game has resonated with fans and critics alike, and its initial sales set Nintendo up for a strong Christmas season.

The “Season of Smash” is set for another boost as Nintendo today lifts the lid on the European release date for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, with the fighting series’ first foray into HD landing in European shops on 5th December. The first wave of Nintendo’s interactive amiibo figures will launch a week earlier, on 28th November. Twelve iconic Nintendo characters will be included in the first round, with six more figures set to launch with the second wave on 19th December.

Today marks the launch of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and I think we are all in for a “smashing” good time.

In honor of this Nintendo has updated its website to include three new secret characters, Spoiler Alert!

In a recent interview with gamestm, Masahiro Sakurai speaks to his passion for his upcoming title Super Smash Bro’s for Wii U and 3DS.

“It really is a miracle,” beams an ebullient Sakurai to the gathered room of journalists. “[We have] four of the most famous characters in the video game industry on the same screen battling each other. The only game that makes this possible is Super Smash Bros.”

“And, just between you and me,” he adds, leaning towards the crowd as if to whisper in the ear of each participant, “I’m aiming to make this the number one character game in the world.”

This is just too humorous not to share with you all:
