Iga will freak at the xenoblade level. Metal Head invades the level and starts to insult the fighters and attacks them!

While 8 player smash sounds awesome, it also seems as it'll be as rare as a Destiny raid.  Even if you could find 7 friends for local play, will you be able to find 7 friends to play nothing but Smash for a whole evening?  There's no other game you can play with that many people.  I had 4 friends over a while ago, and we had difficulty finding enough 5-player games to play on the WiiU, let alone playing with 8 people.

Unless, of course, you could set up 2 TV's with multiple consoles, in which case frantic multiplayer mayhem would ensue.  I remember times when we had a bunch of friends over with 2 or 3 Wii's, which was a blast.

Yeah it is a time trial of nearly every game every character is from and they said you can try to see how far you can go in the game in the time it gives you.

8 player mode is offline only. I wish I had 8 friends. Sad

Limited time trial? Offline only?

Well, there goes my newfound interest in the game...Nyaa

I'd replay all 3 PS2 games, as well as GTA4 if it was given a next gen facelift.

24th October 2014 –

Nintendo has unleashed a deluge of information about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, launching across Europe on 5th December, including an eight-player mode, special offers for fans who get both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions and a variety of options and surprises exclusive to the Wii U version. Nintendo revealed these and many more details in a live-streamed video announcement named Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: 50 Must-See Things, which is available to watch now on YouTube or via the Nintendo Direct website.


Some of the topics covered in the video include:


Eight-Player Mode: In a first for the series, a special mode lets eight players fight simultaneously in local multiplayer. This option appears only in the Wii U version, and lets players compete on special, larger stages to accommodate all the characters.


amiibo Figures: Once a player touches an amiibo figure to the NFC touchpoint on the Wii U GamePad, the character joins as a “Figure Player”. The amiibo figures can gain levels to become stronger as they gain experience through battling and are fed equipment by the player. Players can also have amiibo fight each other, and amiibo will bring you presents from the battles they fight in.


Online Multiplayer: This time it’s possible to team up locally with a friend to compete “With Anyone” online, amongst other options. In the future, players will be able to set up customised Tourneys and there will also be Official Tourneys. Voice Chat with Friends through the GamePad before and after battle, on the Fighter Selection and Results screens.

Custom Stage Creation: The touch screen of the Wii U GamePad makes it easier than ever for players to build their own stages and, after a future update, share them with friends and other players around the world.


Controls: The Wii U version features more controller options than any other game in the series, such as the Nintendo GameCube Controller through the GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U, amongst others. In addition, players who own the Nintendo 3DS version of the game can use their Nintendo 3DS or 2DS systems to control the action on the TV screen in Smash Mode on the Wii U version.


Importing Fighters: Fans of the Nintendo 3DS version of the game can immediately benefit from the fruits of their smashing labours. Players can import custom Nintendo 3DS fighters (including Mii Fighters) to the Wii U game, along with their customised equipment, costumes and hats.


Special Soundtrack Offer: Everyone who registers both the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. on Club Nintendo during the promotional period will receive a two-disc soundtrack of music from the games*.


Mewtwo: This veteran fighter will be made available as free downloadable content in Spring 2015 for anyone who registers both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game with Club Nintendo during the promotional period*.


Modes: The Wii U version of the game offers many new modes and different ways to play that keep players coming back for more, including:


Smash Tour: A fighting party game that looks like a board game. Players use items, spin a wheel and advance around the map. Up to four players can compete at once as they navigate the board and gain fighters and power-ups they can use in a final battle.


Special Orders: In Master Orders, the more difficult the order from Master Hand you undertake, the higher your reward – but you only get to try once. In Crazy Orders, you pay to enter and battles get harder the longer you survive. Will you know when to stop and reap your rewards?


Special Smash Mode: Players can customise battles and play any way they like.


Coin Battles: Players compete to collect coins from other players.


Stamina Matches: Players fight until their hit points reach zero.


Classic Mode: One or two players fight through a series of battles and advance as long as they survive. Many random events can shake things up, and players can adjust the intensity settings. The more difficult the game, the greater the rewards.


All-Star Mode: Unlike in the Nintendo 3DS version, opponents appear in reverse chronological order, and two players can battle through this mode together.


Event Mode: One or two players take on set character and theme-based battles. Clearing stages helps players see the way forward.



Masterpieces: This menu gives players a peek into the past lives of some of the Super Smash Bros. characters. Players can play cut-down versions of selected characters’ greatest games.


Stages: The Wii U game offers more stages, with more variety, than any game in the series. There is now an expanded version of the original Battlefield stage named Big Battlefield. The Great Cave Offensive, based on the underground labyrinth found in Kirby Super Star, challenges players to avoid potentially lethal danger zones – or throw their opponents into them. The Jungle Hijinxs stage, based on Donkey Kong Country Returns, features dual-plane battles with a foreground and background, and blast barrels that shoot players from front to back and vice versa. After launch, a new Miiverse stage will feature players’ posts from Miiverse, where posts will appear in-game to cheer on the fighters.


My Music: The game includes hundreds of songs and jingles that players can listen to, as well as settings to customise what music plays during gameplay. Players add songs to their library by collecting CDs that appear while smashing or after completing challenges.


Movies: When players clear Classic or All-Star Mode, they’ll be treated to a brief movie featuring whichever fighter they used. Every fighter has a movie, so it’ll be a challenge to view them all. Additionally, HD versions of the new fighter introduction videos are available to watch.


Ridley: Fans have been clamouring for Ridley to appear in a Super Smash Bros. game for a while and now they’re getting their wish - but true to form, Ridley appears in an unexpected way. Players will find him in the Metroid series-inspired Pyrosphere stage, but he does more than just hassle players. If one player attacks Ridley enough, Ridley will join that fighter’s side and attack others. Players (including the one on Ridley’s side) can KO Ridley to earn the point for match results. If Ridley consumes the energy to the side of the ledges, he will become Meta Ridley - and all the more vicious!


Characters: The Wii U version offers players 40 characters plus Mii Fighters from the start. Each character’s moves match those found in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, so players who hone their skills in the portable game will have an edge over opponents in the console version of the game.

What do you get with said edition?

Both games on seperate discs, in seperate cases and a special case to hold them both, fashioned after some tome from the game and with a small artbook.  thing is there's 'only' 15000 of them.

but hey, I called the store and they said they didn't receive it yet, which probably means they never will.  Sad  Now comes my next dilemma: should I buy the SE with the original Bayonetta included anyway, and risk owning it twice, or do I wait for the unlikely event of the FP edition actually turning up?

I think it's 5 players online.

Just finished the Direct, 35 minutes was exhaustive, I don't think I've ever seen a fighting game with so many modes. I know that Brawl is considered somewhat hardcore for those who delved deeper, but this looks like a seriously hardcore game with all the stuff you can do and the options.

I like the photo mode the best, I can play that by itself for hours. And the Xenoblade level where that metalface guy came on, that was wow. Oh and the Super Smash trophies looks awesome. And the Pit commentary and Stafox chatter looks funny too.

Just finished my playthrough of Halo Reach.

Definitely one of the highest quality Halo titles to me. Love the way it tells the story of all these Spartans who did their thing while Master Chief was busy napping. And that last level is totally awesome. Also love the character designs in Reach....from the good guys down to the enemies probably the best designs in the series.
