Join The Battle Any Time, Anywhere In Super Smash Bros For Nintendo 3DS

Nintendo Canada [1]With a staggering number of new modes, collectibles, characters and moves, the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS [2] game brings a massive new entry in the beloved Super Smash Bros. series to the Nintendo 3DS [3] hand-held system. On October 3, players will get to experience the epic battles, glorious multiplayer and vast secrets the Super Smash Bros. series is known for … all in the palms of their hands.

Looking at a Super Smash Bros. character-select screen is like staring into a family tree of gaming’s most prestigious video game lineage. Featuring a roster of dozens of video games’ greatest heroes and villains, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS ups the game with more playable characters than ever before. Familiar favourites like Mario, Link, Samus and Pikachu make a return, but are now joined by newcomers such as the Villager from Animal Crossing, Little Mac from the Punch-Out!! series and Wii Fit Trainer. With such a wide range of characters covering generations of systems and franchises, a previously unheard-of battle between iconic characters like Mario, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mega Man and PAC-MAN can actually happen.Super Smash Bros 3DS Box Art [4]

“The wait is over,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada [1]’s vice-president and general manager. “With Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, the renowned franchise has found a portable home, offering an exclusive experience that lets players take the fight with them wherever they go.”

Even though Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is a hand-held game, there’s nothing small about it. The game features an astonishing amount of modes, ranging from multiplayer battles that can be played locally or online for players with a wireless broadband Internet connection, to a wide-reaching variety of single-player experiences. Some of the modes in the game include:

For the first time in the Super Smash Bros. series, players can customize their fighters’ special moves, while also using collected badges to adjust stats like strength, defense, agility and speed. The game’s deep customization also includes creating personalized Mii characters to use in battle. These Mii characters come in three different types: Brawler, Swordfighter and Gunner, each possessing his or her own move sets and abilities. Players who amass a powerful collection of customized fighters can even transfer their customized characters to use in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U [2] when the game launches this holiday season.

Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS can be purchased in stores or the Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on October 3 at a suggested retail price of $44.99. Players who want to practice their skills before purchasing the game can try out a free demo for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, which is now available in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. A Nintendo Network ID is required to download the demo.
