With under two weeks until the Japanese release of the 3DS iteration, the news about the next Smash Bros. game has been nonstop. While this week's heavy hitters on that front included a new character reveal and the return of a favorite of ours here at ZI, Famitsu has still been churning out news about the characters who have already been revealed. This week, we got four scans featuring the fighters from the Pokémon franchise, as well as a large number of the creatures who will be brought into the fray via the Poké Ball and Master Ball items...

Another week has gone by, which means that there is another week of Pic of the Day posts from Masahiro Sakurai. This has been a crazy weekend to say the least, with the official reveal of Shulk and the "not so official" one for Ganondorf. Amidst all of the chaos, we have tried to gather a weekly collection of Sakurai's Pic of the Day. This week was more about the mechanics of the game than screenshots of the action. The details include information on the Fiend's Scale, Spectator Mode, Challenges, and Character Customization...

Nintendo Italy has announced that Europe will be getting a special version of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS in the form of a "Double-Pack". The package will come with two copies of the game at a discounted price, according to their official Twitter. There has been no confirmation on whether this bundle will be released worldwide or how much the bundle will cost.

If you are in Europe and you are looking at buying multiple copies of the game, this will definitely be something to keep your eye on. For the rest of us...

Nintendo will be holding a closed media event this weekend at PAX Prime for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. No details have been shared on what will be shown, but the final build of the game has been theorized to be there. Given that the event is closed to the public, it's very possible that a special announcement will be made.

Other Smash events will be taking place at PAX, including a Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament and a panel with The Smash Brothers Community. If you have a chance to attend any...

The official website for Super Smash Bros. has been updated to give details on general items, Pokémon, and assist trophies in the newest entries. There's a little new and old in every category, but we are going to take a look at everything that has been detailed on the website. For players who just enjoy Smash as a casual experience with friends, the items look promising as far as creating a fun and fair experience. If you lean more on the competitive side however, you may or may not see these items depending on how you prefer to play. Either way, there are definitely some new tactics and strategies...

It's no surprise that a majority of 3DS owners are waiting anxiously for the release of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS to release on October 3rd, and Nintendo recently made an announcement that will bring those people a lot of joy. In an email sent out to Nintendo's subscribers, they confirmed that the game will be releasing at midnight on October 3rd. Of course, this was to be expected for the biggest Nintendo title to release this year, but the confirmation from Nintendo is a sigh of relief.

If you have a physical copy of the game...

After yesterday's announcement that Amiibo was available for pre-order, the figures have jumped to the top spots on Amazon's sales list. Though the top two spots still belong to PlayStation Digital Codes, Link has taken the number three spot, making it the highest selling physical gaming product on Amazon. Amazon has confirmed $12.99 as the Pre-Order Price Guarantee, and the product includes Amazon Prime benefits. If you haven't already...

As if the two Super Smash Bros. 3DS commercials weren't enough, Nintendo has also released a five minute long introduction video for the Japanese 3DS version of the game. Many of the modes and concepts we have discussed in the past are the main focus, but the video gives a clear visual understanding into how those concepts will be put into action. Even without understanding the language, you should be able to pick up a general idea of what is being discussed...

This morning has been full of news regarding the 3DS. Everything from an upgraded 3DS to new Smash Bros. character reveals in Shulk and Ganondorf (accidentally) has made news today. On top of it all, the official YouTube for Nintendo of Japan has uploaded two new 30 second trailers for Super Smash Bros. 3DS. The video highlights the characters that have been revealed to this point using a comic strip styling to add to the chaos that the game promises fans. While we have seen...

Today's Shulk announcement brought forth new images, including our very first look at Dark Link—a look that is assuredly a reskin for Link himself, just like in Brawl. There isn't much else to talk about here, so I wanted to bring up how bad I feel Nintendo did with the Skyward Sword look for Link. I love the way it looks on its own. but knowing it is supposed to be Skyward Sword Link... it feels ultra lazy, especially compared to what they have been doing for other characters in the game. Link is a fairly big name in video games, so if anything he is even more worthy of special treatment with new models. Sad times...
