Target Lists Super Smash Bros Nintendo 3DS With August 29th Release

Popular US retail outlet Target has listed the Nintendo 3DS version of Super Smash Bros with an August 29th release date. While this could simply be a standard placeholder, the retailer has penciled in a precise date that’s not the typical last day of the month. The retailer also has the Wii U version listed, but they’ve simply said it’s coming on December 31st. Nintendo has already announced that the Nintendo 3DS version of Smash Bros is coming this summer.

Thanks, Nick J

  1. Interesting, we’ll see if this turns out to be true. I personally hope it releases sooner, but I wouldn’t complain if this was truly the release date.

      1. Of course, to each their own. But, yes, that may probably be a problem for a great many people, as you’ve noted. Very insightful of you, Link, twas something I had overlooked. Again, let us all hope that this game releases earlier than August.

  2. If this is true, then I’m disappointed that it comes out so late in summer when lots of people are finished with vacation by then.

      1. It technically is, but it’s more fall than summer in real life. If it comes out August, I’m gonna be really angry. I have school and it would’ve been way better to battle in summertime like June. Sigh.

      2. When Nintendo says, “Summer,” they mean at the very end, last minute of summer. When they say 2014, they mean the last day of 2014.
        That’s if it’s not delayed of course. I just ignore Nintendo release dates and am happy if we get any software at all. And I don’t blame you for being frustrated. Nintendo is going to let your summer vacation burn by before giving you the game.

        This is all very typical Nintendo. Including announcing game systems and games that release YEARS after they use it just to suck you in.

      3. No we are just frustrated Nintendo releases everything so late. I get that they’re being worked on still, but the wait is unbearable. :( As for Sony, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for them too. I don’t own any Sony products yet, but I’ve been thinking about getting PS4.

      6. Lol yeah. Mario Kart 8 is supposed to come out Spring but the last day of May? You may as well just say summer. XD But I guess being a Nintendo fan has taught me patience because I remember what Miyamoto said. A delayed game is eventually good. A bad game is bad forever. :/

    1. The last day of August is the 31st lol and the last day of summer is in September not August. Also, if it had to do with a certain day they can release a game they have the Wii U version as set on the 31st of December which is a Wednesday (that is definitely a placeholder though). Yeah, there is still a big possibility that this could be a placeholder, but knowing that it does not necessarily fit the trend of one it is more likely to be an actual release. Time will tell though and more info will be announced this E3! The hype!

  3. That’s the last day of the U.S’s summer, correct? So I believe it’s a place holder. However, it’s not like they haven’t done this crap before. Look at Dr. Luigi, they waited until the very last day of 2013 to release it (in the U.S)

      2. Completely understandable :) which I can see how others would think that the end of August is the end of summer (at least in North America) as most of the time that is when the school year begins, which really when they release games they go by a seasonal calender that’s universal (i think lol) and to them summer starts in the middle of June and ends in the middle of September

  4. even street fighter 4, tekken tag tournament 2, dead or alive 5 and mortal combat have better graphics super smash bros. ssb is confirmed to be last gen.

    1. SF4 uses cheap black lined cel shade, Tekken and Dead or Alive reuses the same engine and anime style for YEARS both console and arcade, longer than COD’s own outdated engine while SSB styles and feel have changed in each game.

      Try again asshole because I know you’re tight about SF4 becoming a stupid parade of DLC-like re-releases, Tekken and Dead or Alive isn’t as huge anymore so which remaining fighter stands on top of them? Smash Bros and of course since it’s Nintendo’s best game and the most popular fighter ATM, you’re gonna shit on it over fucking graphics like any real dumb internet fanboy would. Like its your only most pathetic excuse you got and don’t even think about mentioning PlayStation All-Stars. Everyone knows that game is a direct Smash Bros. ripoff and you too hate PS because it whips your pretty gimped PC black box ass into its own place..3rd place every time.

      5. Street Fighter 4 looks silly with the black outlines and cell shaded art style. :/ Tekken Tag Tournament for Wii U actually looks pretty good. But you’re right there as well. It looks almost no different than Tekken 6. As for Mortal Kombat, that series has died since deception. I don’t care how realistic the graphics look, I hated MK9. SSB is extremely fun. I can’t even remember how many hours I put into Brawl. The only fighting game I’ve ever played that even comes close to my enjoyment of SSB is Killer Instict Gold on N64. I was extremely hyped for it when they announced it, but then started revealing what console it was on (Xbox One) and they announced season pass DLC. WTF? One of my favorite games completely destroyed because of Microsoft…

    2. So you are saying the Xbox One isn’t next gen either than? Dead Rising 3 can’t run in 1080p with out a massive reduction in graphics, and even then they could only get it to run in 720p.

      Wii U on the other hand hasn’t seen reductions in graphics and still plays more Next Gen games than the Xbox One… just saying

    2. If I was a “Social Reject” then I’d be doing what you’re doing, whining about how Nintendo’s too rich for me so I should bitch and moan about it. And finally, your grammar is horrible. If you’re not a social reject then what’s with all the spelling errors and horrible grammar? Seriously, this has gone BEYOND a joke and I feel like maybe you actually have some mental issues you need to sort out because this behavior is not normal in a Sociable person. I get out to socialize, I don’t spend my day bitching about something like you do and trying to “Expose” people but ultimately failing at it.

      Just saying, plus, I know you’re going to make yet another dull video about how Nintendo fans are “Dumb” and how you are “Right” about everything but can’t come to terms with getting rid of your Wii U, it’s mainly because you are scared, fearing that one day the Wii U will become popular and you’ll be left out in the cold with your worthless trash of a PC and your last gen Xbox.

      Have fun making your shaky cam video because clearly you don’t know how to record footage on the screen. Last bit of facts I want to slam you with before throwing you the scraps off my PC Master Race plate, you should grow up and stop thumbing down videos just because someone made you wet your diapers in anger. Now here, have the scraps of my fucks to give to you low life social reject scum of the earth… Also, watch a better anime or better yet, get some REAL friends. 

      – CreepshowandGore a.k.a. Me ;)

      Remember, I pwned you with this sentence and all you can do now is call people a social reject and ignore me.
