Nintendo dropped a huge, one might even say “super”, sized bomb yesterday in their list of things to look forward to in the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros 4. This game will not be a simple port with better graphics; it will have its own exclusive game modes, stages, music, and more. Even better, Nintendo revealed that there will be DLC characters for the game, beginning next Spring. Or, at least, there will be one. Mewtwo, the Genetic Pokemon, will be returning to Super Smash Bros as a FREE DLC for those who bought and registered both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game, along with the soundtrack! Check out the video feed below for a taste of the new features.
Like I mentioned, there are many cool things going on with the Wii U version of the game. In one of the new modes, up to 8 players will be able to play the game at once, creating massive chaos on the battlefield. Several new stages will be extra-large to help accommodate this new mode, as well as show off the new resolution (1920 x 1080) that the Wii U is capable of. Some of my gripes from the 3DS version will be addressed as well, such as a lack of special options in standard vs mode.
Custom stages will be returning from Super Smash Bros. Brawl with more flexible elements and the ability to “draw areas freehand with your stylus”. Personally, I am pretty stoked for this because I liked the Super Smash Bros. Brawl editor but I wished it had more options. Now, players like me will have that option.
Obviously, there are other things I haven’t covered that were noted in the movie above, but I think I managed to cover the coolest bits. I am excited to get my hands on my own copy next month, so expect a review from me as I see if it was worth buying the game twice for the new experiences that the Wii U will offer.
