Razer, the American gaming peripheral manufacturer, has said that it is considering making high performance gaming products for the Wii U. This is a result of Super Smash Bros Wii U being extremely popular at a variety of video game tournaments. As we saw this weekend, Super Smash Bros Wii U was well represented at the EVO 2015 tournament. A Razer GameCube styled controller would certainly go down a storm with Super Smash Bros Wii U players.
Nintendo has released a new minor update for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. In addition to including the fighting game’s previous updates, patch version 1.0.9 implements some unspecified adjustments for a more pleasant gaming experience. Another recent update added a neat Miiverse stage, which can be selected when playing Smash mode with less than four players.
We kind of knew that Super Smash Bros for Wii U would prove to be a popular entrant at EVO 2015, but it comes as a surprise that its second only to Ultra Street Fighter IV. Not content with having one Super Smash Bros game featured at EVO 2015, Smash Bros Melee for the GameCube is a third most popular entrant at the event. The rankings that you can see below were published by Joey Cuellar who is the EVO 2015 show runner.
- Ultra Street Fighter IV – 2,227
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U – 1,926
- Super Smash Bros. Melee – 1,869
- Mortal Kombat X – 1,162
- Guilty Gear Xrd – 968
- Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 – 816
- Tekken 7 – 458
- Persona 4 Arena Ultimax – 437
- Killer Instinct – 397
Pac-man is an iconic video gaming character, but Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai was seriously considering dropping him from the game unless Namco let him use the old-school design for the character. Presumably Bandai Namco initially wanted Sakurai to use their updated 3D design from Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures, but he wasn’t interested in using that.

A new commercial for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS highlights the fighting game’s latest set of downloadable content. Released on June 14, Ryu from the Street Fighter series, Roy from Fire Emblem and Lucas from Mother 3 are are available for download now. In addition, there are three new stages and several new costumes for Mii Fighters, including outfits from classic fighting series Virtua Fighter and Tekken.
Fans of the latest Super Smash Bros. may remember that you are able to use your Nintendo 3DS as a controller for the Wii U version as long as you own a copy of the game for 3DS.
However, along with the major Smash news today, Nintendo has stealthily released a $.99 app (titled “Smash Controller”) on the eShop that allows players without a Smash cartridge to use the 3DS in the Wii U version.
The app is available now, so make sure to pick it up if you don’t have enough controllers to fill your eight-player roster!
