A new gameplay mode has been added to Super Smash Bros. via an update in Japan, and Sakurai has finally attempted to explain the mode to us English speakers. I have to say that I don't totally understand the mode even after seeing an explanation. I mean, I can take a few guesses at what it adds up to, but the way he talked about it was if we are supposed to actually know what this mode already is. Interesting, considering this is the first time we've heard about it in English. That being said, I'll leave you his quotes for you to decipher.

Luckily, all the Zelda Assist Trophies were announced before the game’s release, so there are no spoilers in the coming post.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has been out for a little while, and we now know every single Assist Trophy present in the game. But the Zelda series has a ton of Assist Trophies, many of which were fan favorites that some of us were hoping to see as playable characters on the Smash roster. Between Ghirahim, Midna, Skull Kid, and Tingle, there are a lot of great honors for some of those second-tier Zelda characters, but we’re wondering which one you were hoping to see...

Yesterday we gave away a bunch of codes for the new Super Smash Bros, for 3DS demo and today we're lucky enough to do it all over again. Thanks to the kind genorosity of our fan base, we have 15 new demo codes to hand out. These codes come at a premium because they have unlimited plays - rumor has it that the demo released on the 19th will have a limited amount of times you can boot it up. As someone who has the demo myself, it's amazing how addicting a 2 minute match can become. So, how can you win yourself one of these codes...

Super Smash Bros. is out in Japan which means that all of the details on the game are available to us. While we still have a few weeks until the game releases in the West, the guys at GameXplain have put together a video showing off the Final Smash for every character in the game. As previously stated, if you do not want anything spoiled for the game then this one isn't for you. If you aren't worried about it, check out the video to see how each Final Smash has been balanced in the final build of the game...

Now that Super Smash Bros. has released in Japan and some U.S. players have gotten their hands on a demo code via Club Nintendo Platinum Memberships, players are getting a feel for how some of the characters play. Ever since the announcement of the Villager, fans have been waiting to smile gleefully as they wail on their opponents. The Villager's moves consist of dropping bowling balls, chopping down trees, and putting opponents' attacks in his pocket. The latter ability has proven to be more useful than previously thought as shown in the video...

Week 2 of Nintendo's "Super Smashing Sale" is here and the next batch of games have been discounted on the eShop. This week features titles from the Legend of Zelda series as well as Fire Emblem, Mega Man, and others which we discussed earlier this week. We now have the official promotional video for the sale which you can watch above. If you are unaware of the titles that some of your favorite Smash characters come from, you can get a quick glimpse into what made them a part of Nintendo history from the video. Now is the best time to pick up some of these titles and I can recommend any of them personally, especially Fire Emblem: Awakening. Also, if you haven't...

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS has been out in Japan for a couple of days now and screenshots are starting to come in showing the damage that the game has caused on the system. It appears that the high intensity control that is brought from playing the game has resulted in broken circle pads. Some reports only show the rubber cushion for the circle pad falling off, but others depict the complete destruction of the plastic underneath. Many of the busted...

We know the game scored a 37/40 in Famitsu, but now we know why. Really when it comes to reviews, the why is far more important than the numerical score itself. I am glad we now have some context, and, in general, they seemed to really enjoy the experience. Famitsu does their reviews a bit different than everyone else: four people get to weigh in and each of them grade the game out of 10. Then they combine the score to get the total score out of 40 possible points. That being said, what did they have to say...
