Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

It's a counter

Pic of the day. Here's the Trophy Shop for the Wii U version. It operates identically to the 3DS version, but it sure has a different feel, doesn't it?

 

Man, that looks nice. I'd love to go there!

 

Nice to see them really differentiating the two different games in all respects :)

Really worried about the content over the two games... I don't want to get everything int he 3DS version and be bored by the Wii U even though the Wii U version looks a hundred times better... Tempted to ease of playing the 3DS version a little to be honest and wait for the Wii U version... If I had willpower then I think it's far better to have waited for the WIi U and pick this up at the same time!

What does the little

Mac down and b do He flashes? I assume some sort of dodge or counter move ?

 

Would you not recommend Mac for big stages with items then ?

 

Down B is a counter attack. He's OK as long as you don't have to jump lol, trust me his air attacks have very little range and powerl it's nearly impossible to hit anyone with them.

This is a concern that's been expressed a few times on a couple of Nintendo podcasts. Do they let you unlock all the characters you have already got on the 3DS version or do they make you trawl through unlocking them again?

 

I had a crack at online the other night while waiting for the guys on here to finish their current Fifa game ( lostmario heard Link through the headset :) ) and it was a laggy mess. It started off fine but turned into a slowdown fest by the time the match had ended. Hopefully the Wii U version will be better.....

A lot of people have started rolling and grabbing in 'For Glory'. Some just wait for your to approach, dodge then grab. Rinse & repeat. Cheap tactics man.

Well both versions have their own unique content (stages, modes, trophies etc) and they're designed to be played together, so I don't think you have anything to worry about on that front...

 

... speaking of which, look at what some hackers managed to dig up from the 3DS game's code...

 

 

A possible sneak peak at some of the Wii U exclusive content? Would explain the need for 8 different costumes for each character (and the Wii U does support up to 9 controllers at once, plus 3DS consoles as controllers on top of that...) ;)

I don't doubt it's worth having both versions, I'm just saying seeing all the pictures of the trophies and characters, it would be much more of an amazing experience seeing this first on the Wii U; the shine will be lost if you've seen 3DS versions of pretty much everything.

Yeah, it's more the impact of how stunning the WIi U version is I'm worried about diminishing, but how this works is really important. The ideal is it unlocks each other's content but there is enough new content in the Wii U for it to feel like there's stuff to do. But we know it has the same character roster and that's the most exciting thing!

Would be nuts, can't even imagine the chaos. :o

Pretty sure it'd be limited to local multi though. :hmm:

Explains why every character has 8 alts now, though.

 

Edit: Oh, you already mentioned that :p

Yeah probably. They're struggling to get 4 players working online, 8 players online is just...

8 players? That's insane. Although it would explain why there are least 8 alts for everyone.

 

Edit: These icons are in the game, too

The way I deal with them is if I think they'll dodge through me I'll do a down smash to get them as they recover and if they're going to dodge away from me I'll keep walking into them then get them as they recover.

If the 3DS is used as a controller, then maybe the screens will actually show the player icons (after all, you activate the controller functions from within the game itself, so why not show something special on the 3DS' screens while you play?) - which explains why the icons would be in the 3DS version, despite it being a Wii U exclusive mode ;)

 

Also since the game isn't being played on the 3DS, they could use the top screen to show the extra 4 character icons, alleviating the problem of having to squash more character icons onto the 3DS' bottom screen ;)

 

The voice clips might also play out from the 3DS speakers as well as from the TV too, explaining why they're in the 3DS game... (or it could just be left in as a mistake :p )

Shopto have it all pre-orderable. GCN controller is £22, adapter is £18. Bundle with adapter is £46 and the bundle with Mario amiibo is £48

 

Mario Amiibo is available for £10 though, so that puts smash at £38, if the adapter is £18 that makes smash £28, no? Tempting nevertheless, I was tempted by the Amiibo bundle tbh, but the adapter looks a better deal... just got to price it all up in my head and figure out just how much I want that adapter

Essentially, the adapter is £7 at ShopTo.

 

Edit: ShopTo have upped the price.

Thought to myself that it was strange that we haven't had an online meet up thread for this game yet. So I made one. It'll totally be popular, just like all those other online meet up threads! Maybe use it? Please? I even did a little thing in Photoshop just for you lot...

 

I was actually about to change my mind and not create the thread, but my finger slipped and pushed enter soooooo....

Yeah, looking at the cheapest price for the game, 37, shopto listing comes up as 50, so the adapter is £13, as is the amiibo. So is the adapter worth £13 to me.. probably not in all honesty.

£45 for the game + adapter at Zavvi.

 

Set up new account with code "WELCOME" for £40.49.

 

(I'd still rather spend £6 more at ShopTo)

So, what's everyone's best score in Cruel Smash?

Mine is...

 

...1 KO. :laughing:

 

And that was only possible by trying this:

 

Are there any other cheap tactics for that mode?

I was just thinking, if the Wii U version is indeed 8 Player, I wonder if it'll be possible to connect 2 GCN controller adapters to a single Wii U system? :heh:

Include USB hubs/hard drives and LAN adapters, and the thing is gonna end up looking like a 32x. :D
