One of the big features of Super Smash Bros for the Wii U is support for 8 players. That’s right, 8 players can go at each other at the same time. The Wii U supports two GameCube adapters, which each add 4 players. We’ve got a couple of videos that show how an 8-player game looks. And as expected, it looks pretty chaotic and fun as hell.

Super Smash Bros Wii U is less than a moth away from release, dropping on Nov 21st in North America and two weeks later in the rest of the world.

If you ever want 8-player battles, we suggest you get a pretty big HD TV in order to see everything. And of course, you’ll need plenty of GameCube controllers.

Super Smash Bros for the Wii U is almost here. The recent Nintendo Direct revealed a bunch of news, including 8-player support and a new board game mode. We also got a new Amiibo trailer, and some other news as well. Overall, Nintendo is making sure we’re very excited for this game, which looks to be one of the biggest hits of 2014.

And if you’re wondering what the Super Smash Bros opening cinematic looks like, wonder no more. IGN has uploaded the game’s opening cinematic, which is comprised of some new footage, and some footage we’ve seen before in various trailers. It’s all put together nicely, showcasing all of the characters in the game.

If you’ve missed any of last-week’s Super Smash Bros Wii U coverage, here’s a quick roundup of the news:

Super Smash Bros Wii U launches on November 21st in North America, December 5th in Europe, and December 6th in Japan. There are several pre-order bonuses out there — last week Toys R Us offered a free Amiibo figure with the pre-order.

How Nintendo inspired Bayonetta’s character costumes http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/how-nintendo-inspired-bayonettas-character-costumes/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/how-nintendo-inspired-bayonettas-character-costumes/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 17:11:12 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31923 bayonetta_peach_design

Bayonetta 2 is out today and one of the features of the game is several costumes included that are modeled after famous Nintendo characters. Princess Peach, Link, and Samus costumes are all available, with all three of them taking design cues from Bayonetta’s art style rather than staying true to the original conservative nature. How did this come about? Well, according to Siliconera it was Nintendo who asked Platinum to consider designing a Princess Peach costume for Bayonetta.

The above concept is the original artwork that was done to try and figure out what the Princess Peach costume should look like. Apparently Hideki Kamiya wanted to get it as close to Peach’s original outfit as possible, while still maintaining Bayonetta’s unique flair. One piece of feedback they got during the design work was that the Link costume was too conservative and could be more revealing, which is why this particular costume shows more of Bayonetta’s chest than a similar one would on Link.

Thanks to Nintendo’s willingness to adapt to the chosen art style, these unique costumes capture the spirit of the original characters, while keeping Bayonetta’s flair for the extravagant intact. What do you think of the designs? If you want to see more of the original concept artwork, check it out on Siliconera.

Thomas Was Alone coming to Wii U in November http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/thomas-was-alone-coming-to-wii-u-in-november/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/thomas-was-alone-coming-to-wii-u-in-november/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:10:50 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31921

Curve Studios has been working with several high profile indie developers in order to bring their creations to Wii U gamers. Mike Bithell’s Thomas Was Alone is one of those games and it finally has a release date, set for November 25. The game is a puzzle platformer with a unique story twist of Thomas and his friends being anomalies in code that programmers are attemping to ferret out. I won’t spoil anything, but it’s probably the best shape-based puzzle game you’ll ever play. Check out the trailer to see what I mean.

Aside from Thomas Was Alone, Curve Studios has also worked to bring Lone Survivor, The Swapper, and their own Stealth Inc. 2 to the Wii U, making them great supporters of the console.

Wii U can use two GameCube adapters for 8 player Smash http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/wii-u-can-use-two-gamecube-adapters-for-8-player-smash/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/wii-u-can-use-two-gamecube-adapters-for-8-player-smash/#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 14:18:03 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31919 smash-gamecube-adapter

Last night during Nintendo’s big Super Smash Bros. presentation, 8 player Smash was finally revealed as a confirmed feature for the upcoming game. This led many people to wonder what those extras will be using for a controller, since the fabled GameCube adapter for Wii U only has four slots. Turns out, you can use two of these adapters to have all eight players using GameCube controllers. That’s a lot of accessories, but if you’re serious about Smash with your friends, it’s possible.

Aside from the GameCube adapter and controller, we also learned that every single input method accepted by the Wii U can be used as a controller. The Wii remote and nunchuk are supported right alongside the classic controller and the pro controller. Is there a record for how many ways a game can be played? Because we’re pretty sure Super Smash Bros. on Wii U takes the cake. Even if you somehow manage to break all of your Wii U controllers, if you have a Nintendo 3DS laying around you can use that as a controller. Nice!

Mewtwo revealed as DLC for Smash Bros http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/mewtwo-revealed-as-dlc-for-smash-bros/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/mewtwo-revealed-as-dlc-for-smash-bros/#comments Thu, 23 Oct 2014 23:04:39 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31904 Mewtwo comparison

There was a new Nintendo Direct today, and a ton of new info got revealed about the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. But the most exciting thing was a newly revealed playable character. No, not Bowser Jr: Mewtwo!

Returning for the first time since Melee, Mewtwo will be offered as a free DLC reward for those who buy both versions of Super Smash Bros. He won’t be available right away though, as according to the Direct he’s “still in development.” Thus he should be available in Spring of 2015. There’s no word on whether or not he’ll be available for purchase seperately for those who don’t want to buy both versions of the game.

Are you guys excited about this? I know I am, Mewtwo has always been one of my favorite Pokemon! Do you think you’ll be using him in Smash Tours, or the 8-Player Smash?

New Amiibo trailer shows off Super Smash Bros. http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/new-amiibo-trailer-shows-off-super-smash-bros/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/new-amiibo-trailer-shows-off-super-smash-bros/#comments Thu, 23 Oct 2014 22:58:43 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31909

While we got some information on how the Amiibo system works in the Nintendo Direct that aired today, the bulk of the information was geared toward the differences in the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U version. Thankfully Nintendo has released a brand new trailer that showcases the concept of the Amiibos a little bit better, as well as showing off some of the features of Smash, like 8 player Smash.

Level editor returns for Super Smash Bros. Wii U http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/level-editor-returns-for-super-smash-bros-wii-u/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/level-editor-returns-for-super-smash-bros-wii-u/#comments Thu, 23 Oct 2014 22:48:39 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31901 stage-creator-wii-u

Today during the 50 things extravaganza for Super Smash Bros., one of the final points revealed is that you’ll be able to create your own stages using the Wii U GamePad. Stage creation is as simple as using the stylus to draw the platforms you want to create. There are also multiple items you can place around the stage, as well as danger zones that damage players when they run into them.

Fans who like to get creative by building unique Smash stages will be excited to see all the different options available, especially with the larger 8 player Smash mode available so you can get crazy big with all of your stage creations. While this mode was leaked early in the Amazon product page, some of the footage we got to see from the stage creator shows off a pretty robust system that should satisfy even the most demanding artists.

Smash Tour is the new board game mode in Super Smash Bros. http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/smash-tour-is-the-new-board-game-mode-in-super-smash-bros/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/smash-tour-is-the-new-board-game-mode-in-super-smash-bros/#comments Thu, 23 Oct 2014 22:38:25 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31898 smash-tour-pic

Smash Tour is the exclusive mode for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. It’s a fighting party game similar to how Mario Party works, taking place on a board game map. All of the power-ups that are featured in Smash Run will be available on Smash Tour, so you can use them to wreck your opponents.

Are you excited to check out Smash Tour? Does it sound more fun than the currently available Smash Run?

8 Player Smash confirmed for Super Smash Bros. http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/8-player-smash-confirmed-for-super-smash-bros/ http://wiiudaily.com/2014/10/8-player-smash-confirmed-for-super-smash-bros/#comments Thu, 23 Oct 2014 22:09:44 +0000 http://wiiudaily.com/?p=31895 8player-smash

Over the course of the last week several rumors surfaced about Super Smash Bros., including one that would allow for 8 players on the Wii U version. Today during the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct, the 8 player Smash mode was confirmed. In order to make this possible, several larger stages were designed for the action to take place. The Direct confirmed that the reason this mode isn’t in the Nintendo 3DS version is the resolution is too small.

The only downside of 8 player smash is that it is local only and you will not be able to play online. However, if you’ve got seven friends who are into Smash and you want to wreck face, you’ll be able to do so simultaneously now. Great! Stay tuned for more info as it’s revealed from the Nintendo Direct.
