Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS
Famous names from favourite Nintendo franchises and guest characters come together in a high-definition fighter filled with spectacular action. With unique modes, online multiplayer, the ability to customise your fighter and the series’ biggest roster of playable fighters ever, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is truly a clash for the ages. Mega Man, Little Mac, PAC-MAN and more new challengers join the longest roll call of famous fighters the Super Smash Bros. series has ever seen.
Compete with classic characters from the Super Smash Bros. series like Mario, Link, Samus, and Pikachu, along with new challengers like Mega Man, Little Mac, and Palutena, the Goddess of Light from the Kid Icarus games. For the first time, players can even compete as their own Mii characters. Greninja, the awesome final evolution of Froakie from Pokémon X and Y, joins the roster as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. for both Wii U and 3DS.
Fight against friends and family locally or online, or battle random challengers all over the world online in For Fun and For Glory modes. When playing with friends, full customisation is available – players can set the rules, stages, and items however they want. Be the best of your friends as you battle each other!
View most elements of the high-energy action at silky-smooth 60 frames per second and in eye-popping stereoscopic 3D. Watch back the best of your Smash highlights in crystal clear 3D as you defeat your opponents!
Customise different aspects of your character when playing locally or online with friends in a variety of multiplayer modes. In a series first, players can now customise move sets when playing locally or online with friends. More information about this feature will be announced in the future.
Super Smash Bros. is fully compatible with amiibo. Use amiibo in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS in a number of ways and even train it to become better in the game! Once a player touches an amiibo figure to the NFC touchpoint on the New Nintendo 3DS/New 3DS XL console, or NFC Reader/Writer accessory for Nintendo 3DS/3DS XL/2DS, the character joins as a “Figure Player”. The amiibo figures can gain levels to become stronger as they gain experience through battling and are fed equipment by the player. Players can also have amiibo fight each other, and amiibo will bring you presents from the battles they fight in.
Smash and crash through Smash Run mode, a new mode exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version that gives up to four players five minutes to fight solo through a huge battlefield while taking down recognisable enemies from almost every major Nintendo franchise and multiple third-party partners. Defeated enemies leave behind power-ups to collect. Players who collect more power-ups have an advantage once time runs out and the battle with opponents begins.

Everything that was wrong with Brawl has been fixed with this game. The speed is nice and fast, the gravity no longer feels slow or clunky and the CPU on higher difficulties can offer somewhat of a decent challenge to advanced players.
The so called "clone" characters that many players seem dissatisfied with aren't a problem for me. Yes it would've been cool if Pit and Dark Pit or Marth and Lucina had completely different techniques. There are 2 reasons that I don't really care however. Firstly because each character's moveset is fully customisable. Secondly, the subtle differences in each character does make quite a difference, including the minor weight difference between Mario and Dr Mario. It makes the characters feel familiar however you have to think differently whilst using them. For example nobody can use Ganondorf and Captain Falcon in the same way, despite them having near identical special movesets. All things considered then I think the character roster is fantastic.
The soundtrack is fantastic although it would be nice if there were more than 2 tracks per stage and if there were more new tracks than ones recycled from Melee and Brawl. The same could be said of the stages.
The online play for me is basically none existent. The lag is so bad that at times the framerate stops completely rendering online play basically unplayable. However I have never been a big user of online play anyway, favouring the local multiplayer with my brothers at home.
Smash run is a little weaker than the game's other modes. It can be very repetitive and feels like a cheaper, shortened version of Brawl's Subspace Emissary. However in short bursts it's still fun and enjoyable to play with friends.
There is plenty to do in this game, several modes including Classic, All Star, Multi Man Smash, Homerun, Trophy Rush and Smash Run have kept me entertained for months. The game's challenge panels have been very rewarding to unlock.
This has quickly become one of my all time favourite games. It not only acts as an homage to some of the most beloved video game characters in history but it is fantastically fun, addictive and brilliant in nearly every aspect. It is easily one of the top 5 3DS games and I will enjoy playing both it and the Wii U version for years to come.
The huge range of characters to choose from make for entertaining games and the references to many Nintendo (and otherwise) games are great, even down to the huge range of music from classic games.
Super Smash Bros. really can be whatever you want it to be. It can be played for minutes or hours in one sitting without feeling shortchanged or over stretched and I highly recommend it. The only reason I have not given 5 stars is for the odd missing features I would have found valuable especially in the online system which is fairly integral to a game that is largely multiplayer. The lack of a matchmaking system (so you are placed against random players not necessarily of your skill) can make for one sided match ups online, although these are often still enjoyable. My main issue is the inability to go into a team game of 2v2 with a friend and then match with others online. This is such a shame and restricts local and online games with friends to filling gaps with CPU characters. I am hopeful this will eventually be added to the game as it will really add an extra level of play.
As I am writing this review having now played both versions of the game the 3DS version just feels so empty in terms of content as Nintendo have went all out to make the WiiU version the best Smash Bros game ever.
The 3D effect reduces the quality of the images so I never play with that turned on and as I have not travelled since the WiiU version came out I can honestly say I haven't picked the 3DS version up to play it, there's just no incentive too as the two games do not interact apart from the 3DS being used as a controller for the WiiU if needed there is no further incentive to play the 3DS version.
Nintendo have done a good job of pushing the 3DS hardware to it's limit with Smash Bros but overall it seems like a budget watered down version of the WiiU game which will keep kids happy but unless you're travelling with your 3DS stick with the WiiU version.
It's a fun game to while away the hours with, but if you want the full experience you want the wiiU version, I don't have it but my friend does and whenever we play it it's great fun, you just don't get the same experience without shouting at your friends for stealing the smash icon that allows you to do your mega move that "you just hit all those times goddamnit and they come in right at the end?" And ganging up on a team of NPC jigglypuffs and peaches.
All in all, it's worth it, but if you're trying to choose whether to get the 3DS or WiiU go for the Wii
