Super Smash Bros. 4 Characters, Release Date, New: Top 5 Things You Should Know for Your Wii U and 3DS
Despite the fact that many are saying Nintendo played it safe this year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), there's no doubt that once announcement has rendered a lot of excitement.
If you haven't heard about the next edition of Super Smash Bros. coming out for Wii U and 3DS due out in 2014, then you better keep reading because these are the top 5 things we know about the highly anticipated new installment.
1. Most notably, the game has two new characters. You'll be able to use both Mega Man and the Animal Crossing Villager to fight classic Super Smash characters like Mario, Samus, Pikachu, Kirby, and the many others. IGN writes that in the Mega Man reveal trailer, the Blue Bomber appears complete with Mega Buster, numberous Robot Master abilities, and even his robot dog, Rush.
The Animal Crossing Villager, can plant Pitfall Seeds that trap his enemies, but even chop down trees to hurt them.
2. We probably won't see any Tekken characters. Of introducing non-Nintendo characters, the creator of the franchise Masahiro Sakurai told IGN, ""I think Snake and Sonic joining were fantastic. It made many fans happy, and it broadened the Smash Bros arena. However, introducing more non-Nintendo characters willy-nilly will lose the focus of the game, so I also recognise the need to narrow it down."
3. New Stages. The trailer at E3 revealed several stages including Mega Man 2's Dr. Wily Stage, a Nintendogs level, the train from The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, and a stage which IGN wrote, "
appeared to be set in Gerudo Valley from Ocarina of Time." The Villager will also be accompanied by a stage from Animal Crossing.
4. The seemingly only major difference between the versions for Wii U and 3DS are the graphics. Gamers playing Wii U can enjoy their favorite characters and levels in a glossy HD, where as the 3DS graphics are only slightly less impressive.
5. Gameplay will be mostly the same compared to previous Super Smash Bros. games. Sakurai told IGN, "The game system itself is complete, so we don’t want to make it 3D or introduce complicated controls just for the sake of it. However, I am thinking of ways we can introduce a slightly different, fun experience all the while keeping the usual frantic game play."
