When Nintendo announced that the new installment of the hit franchise Super Smash Bros. was going to be released on both the 3DS and the Wii U, it seemed like a risky move. By releasing two versions of the game, Nintendo could split the market, some people buying only the 3DS version, others only buying the game for the Wii U. The 3DS version of the game has been out a month or so and has sold very well. The Wii U Smash Bros. is due out on the 21st of November. During the whole hype cycle of the game, Nintendo assured fans that the two versions of the game were going to be unique enough to validate buying a copy for both systems. In a recent Nintendo Direct, the company explained just how different the 3DS and Wii U version are going to be.
For those of you who don’t know, Super Smash Bros. is a frantic fighting game featuring characters from popular Nintendo series. The first installment debuted on the Nintendo 64 and each subsequent console generation has seen a new addition to the franchise.
