Nintendo Says Smash Bros. Wii U Pre-Orders Setting Records; Surpassing Mario Kart 8

Is Smash Bros. going to spark the Wii U like Mario Kart 8 did? It looks that way, but this time, it's even more forceful.

This is good news, and they still have other 10 days.

More excited for this game than any other.

Didn't get to play Brawl even though I followed the Dojo a ton before release.

I've literally been waiting since 2001 to play this game.....

mikeslemonade1348d ago

Well yea the install base is slightly bigger now.

Even I preordered this game, the resident Nintendo hater of this website lol.

Brawl was great, I would tell you to check it out yourself if this new one wasn't going to be better in every single way (unless you wanted Subspace Emissary).

marloc_x1347d ago

My first Smash purchase ever :)

diepdiep1348d ago

These next 10 days will be very slow indeed.

MK8 DLC will soothe the pain.

Haven't played Smash since Melee, very excited for this one! And it should definitely have some sales legs since it's releasing right into the holidays.

Is the Smash Bros 3Ds version will work on the old 3Ds XL? I know that the game is advertise for the New 3DS LL but...

Concertoine1348d ago

It works on all 3ds models

I'm REALLY looking forward to 8 player Smash.

I'm going to use that to revive my old Melee challenge: Endurance Smash.

Stage: Temple
Opponents: The ones you find either most difficult or most annoying.
Only one type of healing item, set on low.[choose lower forms of healing items to increase difficulty]
Stock match.[99 lives]

The ultimate goal: Survive the match without losing a single life.[the best way, though, is to slowly work up mile-stones, like surviving with at least 50 lives]

It's one of those challenges that really helps you learn how to play defensively, how to properly space yourself, knowing when to attack and when to retreat, and watching for tells and behavioral patterns becomes more second-nature because it'll help you survive longer.

It's not something you can do in an afternoon, though.
Might wanna reserve a weekend for it.XD
