More information about the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. keeps rolling out as the October 3 release gets closer; recently the official Super Smash Bros. website was updated with details about the “Classic Mode” featured in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. More after the break. Continue reading
After teasing the character reveal with an image via Miiverse, Super Smash Bros. lead designer Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed Meta Knight (of Kirby fame) will be returning to the character roster in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U.
Here are some 3DS images of the returning brawler:
Sakurai commented on changes to Meta Knight in the new Super Smash Bros. games:
Looks like there was an impostor in the earlier posts, so I introduced him to my sword!’ …I’ll leave it up to your imagination if he really said that or not. The veteran hero, Meta Knight, returns to battle!! We didn’t forget the Battleship Halberd either!!
Meta Knight’s Up Special Move, Shuttle Loop, changed quite a bit in this game. The glide is gone, and the attack slashes opponents twice while spinning in a large loop. This has turned into a highly technical and effective move.
Super Smash Bros. series creator Masahiro Sakurai revealed yet another handheld-exclusive stage in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS; this one appears to be based on N’s Castle from Pokemon Black & White / Black 2 & White 2.
Directly from Sakurai’s most recent “Pic of the Day” post on Miiverse…
Reshiram appears on one of the stages in the 3DS version! Zekrom and Milotic will appear, too. It’s close enough to the launch date, so I don’t have to describe this stage to you, right? The design of this stage is based off of the surroundings of someone’s castle.
This is the second 3DS-exclusive stage based on the Pokemon series; the first is based around Pokemon X & Y’s Prism Tower landmark.
I am excited to see the full layout and design of this stage; I wouldn’t be surprised if players need to occasionally dodge incoming attacks from Reshiram, Zekrom and Milotic.
Stay tuned for more details about Super Smash Bros. for 3DS as the October 3 launch approaches.
A few days ago, Masahiro Sakurai revealed the main menu screen for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS via Miiverse.
This may not sound like a huge deal, but these images more or less confirm some of the features and modes included in the series’ handheld debut.
Check out the screens after the break. Continue reading
The Nintendo 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. will include an exclusive stage based on the Paper Mario franchise – the first from the series.
“This ship (seen below) is the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door…Since the stage is paper, it transforms when it folds over and opens up again,” said series creator Masahiro Sakurai.
Sakurai revealed the following imagves of the new stage via Miiverse last night:
What do you think? Personally I find it strange that the 3DS-exclusive stage was based on the Gamecube installment, and not Paper Mario: Sticker Star, which launched in 2012 on the 3DS.
Super Smash Bros. for 3DS launches October 3; the Wii U version is slated for winter. Stay tuned for more details until then.

If you are anything like me, you will be hearing a lot of that theme in the coming months.
Let me be clear: I am more excited about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. games for 3DS and Wii U than…any other video game, quite frankly.
On the other hand, as much time as I have spent daydreaming about playing the game, I have also come to terms with a few thoughts and concerns regarding the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros.
For those looking forward to Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, October 3rd could not seem further away.
