Smash Bros Website Adds Single Player Details For 3DS’ Classic And Stadium Modes

Amongst the multitude of Super Smash Bros. news today, Nintendo has updated the upcoming brawler’s official website in relation to the Nintendo 3DS version. While we’ve known about the single player campaign for a number of months, details have been scarce for classic and stadium modes.

In particular, the website touches on information regarding Solo Classic mode’s branching paths, your fighter’s balance and a choice of 0-9 in intensity levels, as well as new information on Stadium’s sub-modes – Multi-Man Smash, Target Blast and Home-Run Contest. You can check out a run-down of all the information below, or check out the official site, here. Feel free to check out the gallery of screens below to get a feel for the different modes.

Solo Classic Mode

  • In Classic mode on the Nintendo 3DS, players choose different paths as they proceed along a map and fight against waiting CPU opponents.
  • There are many different kinds of matches, including one-on-one fights, team battles with CPU players both aiding and attacking you, matches where you must defeat opponents one after another or in groups, and even more.
  • When you win a match, you will receive a reward. Besides trophies and gold, you can also receive custom parts.
  • Fighter balance and intensity levels can be adjusted before starting a game, where you can use gold to adjust the intensity level. The higher the intensity, the stronger opponents will be, and the greater a player’s rewards will be when victorious.

Stadium Mode

  • There are three sub-modes in the Stadium: Multi-Man Smash, Home-Run Contest and the all-new Target Blast.
  • In Target Blast, players have a bomb that will explode 10 seconds after being hit. They must launch this bomb to destroy blocks and targets and score points.
  • Getting a good score depends on launching the bomb to areas rich with targets, getting the timing of the explosion just right, and using the explosive blocks found around the stage to maximum effect.

Sakurai Shows Off Dr Wily Trophy And Trophy Shop For Smash Bros Nintendo 3DS


Super Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed via Miiverse that Mega Man’s Dr Wily will be making an appearance in Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS as a Trophy. Sakurai also mentioned that there will be a trophy shop in the game where you can purchase certain trophies for those not patient enough.

Here’s the trophy gallery for the 3DS version. You can rotate the trophies by drawing circles on the bottom screen. Super Smash Bros. Brawl had tons of trophies, but rumor has it that the 3DS version alone may have more than Brawl. Looks like the Dr. Wily that we made from scratch for the 3DS version is on his knees in disbelief.

Here’s something new–the trophy shop. If you’re having a hard time getting certain trophies, why not just buy them? They sometimes go on sale, too.

The Sable Prince From A Japan-Only Game Boy Title Is An Assist Trophy In Smash Bros

smash_bros_sable_princeSuper Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed a new assist trophy for the upcoming Wii U and 3DS game. Perhaps known only to avid import players and Japanese gamers, the Sablé Prince from Game Boy title Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru will make a special appearance in the brawler’s release later this year.

Released in 1992, Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru may be an awkward mouthful to non-native speakers, however its direct translation “The Frog for Whom the Bell Tolls” features word play derived from the Hemingway novel of a similar title. Though the action RPG was only released in Japan, an English fan translation surfaced in 2011 to honour the game’s unique story.

Along with the image above, Sakurai has also displayed the Sablé Prince in trophy form. Due to events in the original story, the prince can shape-shift into a snake or a frog, so it’s wise to keep an extra eye on this slithering foe at all times. Here’s what the director said on Miiverse:

“In this Smash Bros. installment, this little guy is also making an appearance! I…don’t know his name, but he’s the Prince of the Sablé Kingdom. He’s from the Game Boy game Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru (translated as The Frog For Whom the Bell Tolls), which was only released in Japan.

“Here’s the trophy of the Sablé Prince. He transforms into a snake or a frog, and unloads multiple attacks on any opponent he catches. Keep attacking your foes when they’re trapped in his dust cloud.”
