With Super Smash Bros. just two months away on 3DS, we’re starting to get a better look at more of the elements included in the package. A new mode, called Target Blast, combines elements of the previous entries’ Target Smash and Home-run contest.

In this minigame, players will need to deal as much damage as possible to a bomb before launching at a structure littered with targets. Launching the explosive at the right time and aiming for the most chain reaction damage will net you the highest score.

Looking especially at the second image, this has a similar feel to Angry Birds, with pieces of the structure used to further the damage. The better you do, the more you’ll improve your “Global Smash Power” for online ranking. For more on Super Smash Bros., check out our coverage from E3 as the Wii Fit Trainer and Greninja. The 3DS version is slated to release on October 3. The Wii U version is yet undated, though Nintendo is targeting the “Holiday 2014” window.
