Super Smash Bros. for 3DS has been out for a few weeks, and it is proving to be quite a seller. It has even helped Nintendo sell hardware, which is something they desperately needed. Now, with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Nintendo hopes to duplicate, or even expand on, these results.
In their most recent Nintendo Direct, they showed off 50 cool things about the new title. There were two interesting features shown off that need to be mentioned. First, one of the interesting game elements from Super Smash Bros. Brawl was the create-a-stage. The problem, of course, was the sometimes unpredictable interface because of the motion-controlled console. Well, with the Wii U we now have a touchscreen tablet included, which means that you can actually design a detailed, complete level.
A more important feature of the new title, however, is the expanded gameplay. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, you will be able to play an 8 person game instead of the traditional 4. Finally having an HD-capable Nintendo console allows for a more detailed stage, and of course more combat on the screen.
Adding more players to a screen means everything will be a bit smaller, as the game can zoom out pretty far as the action separates. Hopefully you have a large screen to play this crazy new mode on so you can see everything.
Are you excited to see how these new and revamped features play in the real world? Well, for now you can check out the Nintendo Direct video in the source link and tell us your thoughts in the comments section.
