Here’s How Rewards Work In Super Smash Bros. For 3DS


In a post on Miiverse, Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has shared some information regarding how rewards will be doled out in Classic mode on Nintendo 3DS.


“In Classic mode, a roller spins before every stage to determine your reward,” Sakurai wrote. “Rewards in red are for customization, green ones are trophies, and yellow means precious gold.”


“Of course, if you raise the intensity, the abundance of these rewards will increase quite a bit, too. You can be rewarded in every stage, so in that way this mode might be a little more generous compared to previous games in the series.”


“And here’s the results screen,” Sakurai continued. “It shows what you gained in each stage, but you won’t be rewarded until you clear it all. If you mess up in the middle, you can lose some of them too.”


“The fighter icons are special attacks, and icons like the shield are equipment. The icons that say Mii on them are hats and clothes for Mii characters. Icons that show characters on a stand are trophies, of course, and the coins are gold you earned.”


Super Smash Bros.for Nintendo 3DS will be released October 3rd in North America and Europe. This Friday, Nintendo will be live-streaming gameplay footage from the game, as well as from a few other upcoming 3DS and Wii U titles.
