Christopher Buffa (Prima Games): Nintendo will release its highly anticipated Super Smash Bros. for both the Wii U console and 3DS handheld later this year. In fact, the game will first appear on the portable system October 3, yet for some reason, several people we spoke to plan to hold off on buying the pintsized version and wait for the Wii U edition, which should arrive sometime in November.
Granted, they have some good points. The Wii U Smash Bros. features high definition graphics and GameCube controller support; Nintendo will release a bundle that includes the game, controller and adapter for $99.99. What’s more, it remains to be seen whether the relatively small 3DS screen (even the 3DS XL display) can handle the four-person craziness longterm compared to big brother.
Fair enough, but we have great reasons why you should line up in October to buy the game.
