Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS Makes It Easier To Get Revenge

By Sato . May 30, 2014 . 10:35pm


We recently got a look at one of Ike’s moves with the Eruption attack, in addition to a useful tip from director Masahiro Sakurai. He also shared a first look at the bottom-screen for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS earlier today on Miiverse.



“Pic of the day. Here’s a first look at the bottom-screen display for the Nintendo 3DS. Your name will appear in the area above the accumulated damage. And if you tap one of the fighter displays…!”


zlCfzR_BgyY93n-t5n “…You can highlight that fighter on your screen. This is useful when you want to get back at a particular opponent. You can also highlight yourself if you need to keep better track of where you are. This is a great benefit to having your own individual screen.”


Super Smash Bros. is in development for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.

  • Ohohohohohoho~

    This gives new meaning to the term “hitbox”

  • Dystopiq

    So basically he wants to tear families apart

    • Families and friendships.

      • I still say Mario Party and Mario Kart are more dangerous for society than a lot of the rated M stuff out there. Oh, the hatred that plumber and his friends have managed to fuel in the hearts of children and adults everywhere…

        • Christopher C

          You think THOSE are bad? What about the rage inducing, friendship shattering:

          The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures

          LoZ: FS (the game before FSA) focused on teamwork and nurturing friendships that FSA broke down.

          Freakin Mario party…so many stolen stars…for this i swear theyll pay

        • Samsara09

          Fuck,I hate mario party,don’t even mention it.Just kidding though.I simply disliked how lucky based and easy to abuse it was.

          Mario kart,not so would only be if you had a friend throwing red shells all the time at ya.

        • …..

          • E.T.993

            Even worse has to be the Mario Party AI. THOSE LUCKY OVERPOWERED BASTARDS!

          • MaskedHeroxx

            Im so weak

        • God

          It’s almost as much of a relationship destroyer as monopoly.

        • Haha! I cannot disagree, really. Which, I gotta admit, I would not have it any other way. >’D

          They’re absolutely wonderful for exacting revenge.

      • Ric Vazquez


  • Wafflenaut

    Oh, it’s on now!

  • Jettythesunfish

    Revenge is smashing.

  • Finally! I’ve been waiting to see what the bottom screen of the 3DS would display. Not what I was expecting or hoping, but it’s still something.

  • Scissors

    Just thinking they could do some really neat things for the Wii U version. You can have someone using the gamepad as some sort of ominous character creating platforms, placing items, triggering stage dangers, etc.

    • Christopher C

      but not in multiplayer smashes. Too much power to the one with the gamepad. Maybe in challenge stages?

    • Eriol

      The Pictochat stage could be actually pictochat.

  • Tim Curry’s voice:
    “Oh we’re going get along swimmingly”

  • Kornelious

    You know what they say…Redvenge is a dish best served…in 3D!……(Circkets) Ok i’ll go away now :P

  • Guy Wesley

    All I wish is for an option to use the 3DS as a controller for the Wii U version like in Pokémon Battle Revolution.
    Also, that bottom screen=Revenge mode lol.

  • Göran Isacson

    Good… gooooooooooood. Sakurai is already working his dark Sith-agenda and spreading the power of the Dark Side far and wide.
