Smash Bros Actually Fits the 3DS Perfectly

Is the decision to develop the latest rendition of Smash Bros for both the 3DS and Wii U forcing a change to game's mechanics? Are the system's limitations a hindrance to the game as a whole? We take a look to see if the system really does the game justice.

I played the demo on a regular 3DS and everything including items is distinguishable. Really hope online doesn't have severe lag like Brawl did in the past.

It's based off the connection between the players. It's really good if everyone in the match has good connection.

sorry to disappoint you, but its the worst lag ever. I hope u don't like playing with spammers because that's all they do.

Got it at midnight last night. Played about 3 hours total.

* Online:

* 1v1 = Perfect...NO LAG
* 4 man FFA = Lag most matches....various degrees of lag, some not bad, some bad.

* 3 man FFA = No Lag.

* This game is awesome though, and I pretty much have NO complaints.

I'd give it a 9.3/10 so far, but that could change with playing more.

The thing is.....I only see that score rising.

I've yet to try everything or unlock anything really, both of which, will most likely only increase my love for this game.

* Best Smash Brothers yet, but I didn't play Brawl. I'm haven't played since melee, so there is a lot of new here for me.

* Took me 1-2 matches to adjust to gameplay.

* Using a Regular 3DS and it plays fine.
- 1v1 is awesome and 4 player doesn't zoom out too far, it's all still very playable and easy to see.

* Some Great music so far, and having every stage get it's own FD stage is a MUCH better idea than I expected.

* Basically any stage you don't like....just play the FD version.

* Mii Brawler = Awesome to use. I was surprised by this. Didn't expect him to have such a cool moveset.

* This game just makes me want the Wii U version even more now.

I'll get to have all this fun + More Unique Stages, More music, More Modes, + HD Graphics.

Can't wait for the Wii U version, but THIS IS the best version of Smash Brothers so far IMO.

I'm not sure why anyone was worried. PSASBR worked really well on Vita. Why would Smash be any different?

TheFutureIsBlue1478d ago

I never dreamt of playing Smash on the toilet years back, but now we all can! =D It's going to be hard not taking my 3DS to work and sneaking some sessions in.

You'd be able to do that too with the Gamepad, and at a better resolution too.

If only the 3DS was stronger, maybe it wouldn't have had to bring down what the Wii U version could have.

It's a 2.5D game...what amazing things would they have done with it if not for the 3DS version?

voodoochild3461478d ago


Well the ice climbers for one. The fact that there is incomplete data for them on the 3ddi version suggests Nintendo wanted to put them in but couldn't due to hardware issues.

SilentNegotiator1478d ago

I don't buy that the ice climbers were a tipping point. If the gamecube could handle it, 3DS shouldn't have much problem with it.

TheFutureIsBlue1478d ago

If only I had a WiiU. I might actually pick one up soon just to play the console version of Smash. It looks too good to pass up plus the WiiU is getting a good game collection.
