Gamers Sphere: "Handheld titles turn out to be watered down versions of their console equivalents, more often than not. Before the release of Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS, Nintendo stated, however, that it would be nearly identical to the Wii U version, which is scheduled to release this winter. I can personally attest to the quality of Super Smash Bros.. It performs admirably; aside from inferior graphics, one could mistake the experience for a dedicated console game. There is hardly any room for improvement here, and Super Smash Bros. is among the best titles I have played this year, despite its handheld status. Truly, Nintendo has come through on its promise to bring a high level of quality to this incredible handheld game."
