In 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.
Super Smash Bros for Wii U has been available in North America for just a few days and has been relatively glitch-free, unlike its counterpart 3DS version. But while European fans must wait until November 28 to begin their battle, one US Smash player bought his copy of the Wii U brawler and began uploading some rather interesting glitched images yesterday on Nintendo’s social network Miiverse.
As you can see in the video embedded above, Miiverse user T-Man is in possession of a rare copy of the brawler, which has allowed creepy-pasta levels of insanity to make its appearance – particularly in character rendering. King Dedede, Meta Knight, Fox and Kirby all have warped faces or limbs sticking in places where you didn’t even think was possible. But it’s not just these characters that are affected, it appears to be the entire roster – Charizard with elongated limbs, Yoshi who mirrors Croc from the early ’90s, and Zero Suit Samus who doesn’t have much of a leg to stand on.
Fortunately, the glitched characters have seemingly only cropped up for user T-Man after asking for help to see if any other players’ games also shared the same fate. Given that these glitches are supposedly relegated to one game so far, it’s unlikely they will be able to be replicated in other games. You can check out more of the disturbing characters over on his Miiverse profile, here. Have you seen any other crazy glitches in Super Smash Bros for Wii U, and do you believe there could be more to these pictures than meets the eye? Let us know in the comments below.
The latest Nintendo Minute episode sees hosts Kit and Krysta engaging in an eight-player mode in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U with six of their friends. The newly-released fighting game lets up to eight players battle simultaneously on select stages in local multiplayer. The battles can be a combination of real-life players and amiibo. Available now in North America, the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. launches in Europe on November 28th and in Japan on December 6th.
A number of new 3DS home menu themes are now available in the North American eShop. Much like Europe, 3DS owners can take their pick of six new themes, including four Super Smash Bros for 3DS themes and two Pokemon home themes featuring a sleeping Pikachu or Primal Kyogre and Groudon. So if you’d like to celebrate the release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire or Super Smash Bros this weekend, you can select any of the above themes for $1.99 US dollars each. For a closer look at the Smash themes, you can take a look at the link here, or for the Pokemon themes, click here.
Super Smash Bros for Wii U is released today in the United States, but unfortunately gamers in Japan will have to hang on a little longer for the fast paced brawler. To celebrate its upcoming release Nintendo Japan has uploaded two silky smooth 60fps Smash Bros commercials to tide eager gamers over.What do you think to them?
Thanks, N-Dub Nation
