One of the most anticipated game releases coming to the Wii U is the latest version of the popular Super Smash Bros. This game lets you play as several of the best known Nintendo game characters in fun and fast paced challenges. The graphics and engine have been updated to take advantage of the platform, making it even more fun to play!
Thankfully, Nintendo has finally understood that while upgrading graphics, challenges and player options that the one thing that should be left alone is the actual game play design. It may be a good thing to update game play during the first few generations of a game in response to player input, but Super Smash Bros has reached a point where the play is fairly well set up. Even the small glitches that may occur that aren’t perfect are something that players expect, and new players won’t even notice. They wisely choose to leave well enough alone so you won’t have to learn any new controls to get right into playing the new release.
While all the usual suspects are on the Super Smash Bros lineup for the Wii U, a lot of players are surprised to find out (and pleased) that there is more cross game representation on the roster. You can play as the Wii Fit Trainer, Captain Olimar and even the Villager. Also appearing as a new option is Kirby and Samus Aran. Nintendo hasn’t released a complete list of everyone who will be there, but there is also a strong rumor that part of that reason lies in the new way they are planning to be able to update the game play throughout each version life.
Camp Miiverse Challenges and Super Smash Bros
On the Wii U system, the Miiverse is fully integrated, which can add an extra level of fun to playing Super Smash Bros. If you haven’t investigated the Camp Miiverse area, it’s time to go see what it is all about. Camp Miiverse is split into areas for each game where you can post your results, issue and accept challenges that add to your experience. You can also repost from Camp Miiverse right into your own timeline as well and post your favorite profile too. If you get too much going on remember to turn off the Yeah! That way you will only see the original postings in your timeline. The comments will still be there, but you won’t open the post to see them unless you want to.
One of the best things about the whole Wii U plan is that it allows for the games to be updated on a more continuous basis, and on a cross game basis. This means that instead of just being able to access the next release, the current release of Super Smash Bros may suddenly gain more characters on its roster due to an upgrade to another game on the Wii U.
