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 much.it 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.
