wrecking_crew_stage_super_smash_bros_for_wii_uIn his latest Miiverse post, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai acknowledges the European launch of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, which is now available in the region in stores and on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. Sakurai also talks about the Wii U-exclusive Wrecking Crew stage, where walls are destroyed when bombs explode. Additionally, when there are only two panels or less holding up a floor, the floor will crash down, making the stage change constantly. Sakurai warns that you might get stuck inside a metal barrel that falls from above, after which other players can attack you until you get yourself out.

GameCube Controller Super Smash Bros Edition Apparently Facing Delay In The UK

NeoGAF forums members are reporting that they’ve received emails from Amazon UK and ShopTo informing them that the Nintendo GameCube Controller Super Smash Bros Edition is being delayed until sometime next week. It appears as though it’s just the controller, not the actual game, that’s the issue. Sounds like Nintendo UK didn’t correctly estimate demand for the controller.

Thanks, Kyle
