7. A Lot of the Game’s Old Characters are Getting Brand New Moves and Skills

Super Smash Bros Wii U

Several of the game’s classic fighters are returning, but they’re coming with a whole new repertoire of attacks and skills. Some of those classic characters and new moves include (new move info comes via Nintendo press release):

– Zero Suit Samus: That’s right, Zero Suit Samus is back, but this time she is her own fully playable character, separate from suited Samus. In the new game, she is given jet boots to make her even more powerful.
– Sheik: As with Zero Suit Samus, Sheik is another character that appeared in previous Super Smash Bros. games, but will be a unique playable character for the first time in the new Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games. Sheik has new moves like Burst Grenade and Bouncing Fish.
– Yoshi: In previous games, Yoshi stood on two legs and hunched over, as if Mario were going to jump on top of him at any moment. This new version of Yoshi stands completely upright, making him an even stronger fighter.

Click on each character’s name to see a vid detailing these new moves and more – Mario, Kirby & King Dedede, Yoshi, Zelda & Shiek, Samus & Zero Suit Samus and Lucario/Olimar/Pit.

One cool feature that was shown during the live stream was the option of character’s having custom move sets. Players can alter each character’s move set and change them to varying degrees (example – change the directory of Mario’s Fireball projectile). These custom fighter move set changes can be implemented during local/online play. Once more information on this features comes out, we’ll make sure to update this particular fact!

10. An Exclusive Play Mode Called Smash Run Will Only Be Available on the 3DS Version

Nintendo’s newly released press release on this Nintendo Direct/Super Smash Bros. presentation showed off a new gameplay mode that only 3DS owners can play:

Exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version of the game is a new mode called “Smash Run.” In this mode, four players have five minutes to enter a dungeon and explore the surroundings, fight enemies and obtain power-ups to enhance their fighters. Once the five minutes are up, all four fighters enter a battle arena using their newly equipped items and power-ups. Enemies encountered in the Smash Run mode are from a wide range of game series. Multiple Nintendo 3DS systems and games are required for multiplayer modes.
