Earlier this week, we reported that players were getting banned from For Glory mode in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. This ban was caused by players using Peach's turnip attack, which was being registered as an item after being thrown. Items are not allowed in For Glory mode and the system was automatically placing the 24-hour ban on those players. Nintendo promised a fix would be available in a weeks time and they quickly delivered. The version 1.0.2 update was pushed just a few days ago, fixing the bug as well as...

Well, here is a change I didn't see coming. Lucario use to have a niche effect similar to what is now occurring for all Smash characters in the new Super Smash Bros. for 3DS game. Basically, the more damage you have, the harder you hit. Not just in terms of knockback, but you'll do more damage, and this can greatly affect how easily it is to KO someone. This is going to be likely the biggest competitive change to the game when it comes to overall balancing. We have a full video showing you the difference it can make just with a quick sample from Mario and...

This may not be a surprise to some, but some GameStops are reportedly doing a midnight release for Super Smash Bros. for 3DS. Stores that do midnight release tend to do them based on pre-orders. I checked with my local GameStop and they haven't made a final decision on it, but supposedly one GameStop at least received an email telling them to do it. Some GameStops also did midnight releases for Pokemon X and Y, so it's not completely unheard of when it comes to Nintendo games. I don't believe any Wii U games have had a midnight release yet, but maybe that also changes for Super Smash...

Well it is official – Super Smash Bros. for 3DS has basically passed 1 million in sales during it's first week. I can't say it did this for certain, but since digital sales are not counted in this data it is practically a certainty. Even not counting digital sales, it is the single biggest launch in Smash Bros. history... in Japan. Yesterday we got to see the overall list, but we missed out on hardware along with the exact sales. This time around we have that for you. Naturally this week, 3DS and PS4 sales increased with the release of both Super Smash Bros. and Destiny...

Some Target stores in the US have started to stock the Smash Bros. 3DS XL a few weeks ahead of time, and as we can see from the picture submitted to GoNintendo a few days ago.

The Smash bundle is set to release on September 19th in Japan, and on October 3rd and 4th in North America and Europe, along with the release of the game itself...

It looks like the hype for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS in Japan was too much for Destiny to handle, because the first portable entry in the series got the first place in the sales chart...

You may have heard about how players were getting 24-hour bans from For Glory Mode in the recently released Super Smash Bros. 3DS.

Basically, players would get banned for using Peach's Down-Special move, the turnip. When thrown, the game would register the turnip as an item, and assume that the player was a hacker, removing them from the game temporarily.

Nintendo is now working on a fix...

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 said, I'll leave you his quotes for you to decipher...

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 generosity 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...

Warning: This post contains footage of unlockable characters. If you do not wish to have the game spoiled, do not continue beyond this point.

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...
