The new "Super Smash Bros." won't be making an appearance until 2014, but a recently released video by series director Masahiro Sakurai helped keep fans at bay by giving them more information on the game details.
Let's start off with the characters, who will be returning to the hit brawling game and what new characters should gamers expect.
Several new characters have been revealed for the upcoming title including: Mega Man toting Mega Buster, numerous Robot Master abilities and his robot dog, Rush. A Villager from Animal Crossing was also revealed. The Villager can plant Pitfall Seeds to trap his enemies, but chop down trees to damage them.
Finally to everyone's surprise the Wii Fit Trainer was added to the brawling list. The Wii Fit Trainer helps players get healthy in the Wii Fit franchise, so all of her moves come from yoga poses and workouts in the game. She is perhaps the most surprising character to make their way into the game, but her fitness-focused fighting style looks like fun. Check out the image below.
This time around the game will be released on the main Wii U console and also on the handheld Nintendo 3DS device as well. In the Wii U & Nintendo 3DS Developer Direct Sakurai talks a little about the game on both platforms.
The 3DS version of the game features a cel-shaded look with outlines for each character to help them standout on the smaller 3.5-inch screen. The Wii U version uses more primary colors to make the characters look better in HD.
Both versions of the game will feature the same character roster, for now, but each game will have unique arenas. The unique arenas in the 3DS game will come from handheld games like Nintendogs and the DS Zelda games. The Wii U game will have more arenas based on console games, like Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the Wii.
Although the game has no exact release date the new "Super Smash Bros." is set for an early 2014 release date for now. Check out the Wii & Nintendo 3DS Developer Direct video above and also if you missed the trailers catch those after the jump.
