Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

Five Concerns About Super Smash Bros. for 3DS

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.

Blog – Catching Up After E3

As most of you are probably already aware, Nintendo’s offerings at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles were pretty much the talk of the show.

This year’s presentation largely expanded the upcoming Wii U library, but plenty more was announced for the Nintendo 3DS, including information about key titles such as Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, as well as upcoming eShop titles.

Unfortunately, I was unable to keep up with any sort of posting during the E3 week, and missed out on most of the big headlines. As a result, I am going to do my best to post a few of the highlights and resume consistent posting from this point forward.

Stay tuned for some of the big release date announcements, trailers and new information about E3′s biggest Nintendo 3DS games.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS – Lucario Joins the Roster

Lucario, the “Aura Pokemon”, will return to the ever-expanding of fighters in the forthcoming installment of the Super Smash Bros. series for 3DS & Wii U.

Lucario was first introduced to SSB in the last game, Brawl. He was unique in that his attacks became more powerful and destructive after taking high amounts of damage, and many these moves were based directly on his actual attacks from the Pokemon games (such as Aura Sphere, Force Palm, Extremespeed, Double Team, and so on).

Here is the official word from Sakurai and the series’ official website:

The heroic Aura Pokémon, Lucario, joins the battle!! We’ve increased the influence of Aura this time, so a damaged Lucario is truly a force to be reckoned with.

Lucario joined the battle for the first time in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, which was released six years ago. The production staff of Brawl worked really hard to expand the character roster–without their efforts, Lucario probably never would have joined the battle.

I am happy to see another Pokemon character confirmed for the next Super Smash Bros. - I am really hoping for the return of Pokemon Trainer, updated with creatures from Pokemon X & Y.

Keep checking back for updates about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U, I will try to stay current with any news as it comes out.

LEGO The Hobbit Confirmed for 3DS & Wii U

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that there are LEGO The Hobbit games in the works for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, set for release sometime in Spring 2014.

LEGO The Hobbit is based on the first two Hobbit films, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. Like previous LEGO-based titles, LEGO The Hobbit will include numerous distinct locations and characters (Bilbo Baggins, Gandalf the Grey and so on) from the films and J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels.

Most of the LEGO games on the 3DS have received decent or good reviews; stay tuned for more about LEGO The Hobbit as the spring release window gets closer.

Super Smash Bros 3DS - Olimar

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS – Captain Olimar, Pikmin 3 Stage Revealed

Just a quick blurb, although Captain Olimar won’t be returning as the hero of Pikmin 3, he will appear in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for 3DS & Wii U - as well as a stage based on Pikmin 3.

Super Smash Bros 3DS - Olimar 2

I always thought Olimar was one of the toughest players to use in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and I also felt like players who were skilled with Olimar were usually pretty damn good to begin with. What do you think? Are you excited to see Olimar return to the Super Smash Bros. series? Do you think his return makes sense, with Pikmin 3′s trio of protagonist characters (Alph, Brittany and Charlie)?

Sakurai Shows off Smash Bros. for 3DS, Wii U

In case you missed it this morning, Super Smash Bros. 4 (or whatever you’d like to call it) was shown off for the first time. Gameplay footage, new characters, new stages…all kinds of information was revealed.

I’m a little slow in getting around to the Nintendo Direct news from this morning, but after the break, I’ve included the video walk-through of both the Nintendo 3DS & Wii U versions of the upcoming Super Smash Bros. title, as well as concept art for many of the new & returning characters.  Continue reading

Super Smash Bros Wii U 3DS

Confirmed – Next Nintendo Direct Will Feature Super Smash Bros.

Just a quick blurb; according to Nintendo3DSBlog.com, the next Super Smash Bros. game will be featured in the Nintendo Direct presentation planned for broadcast next month, just before the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) kicks off in Los Angeles.

Like the original poster, I’d imagine the Wii U version if Super Smash Bros. 4 (tentative title) will be the focus, but I also would bet on seeing something about the 3DS version. Stay tuned, friends – the time is coming for some of the most-anticipated news of the year.
