The lights are on
What new ideas the game brings to the table and how well old ideas are presented.
How good a game looks, taking into account any flaws such as bad collision or pop-up.
Does the game’s music and sound effects get you involved or do they make you resolve to always play with the volume down?
Basically, the controller to human interface. The less you think about the hunk of plastic in your hands, the better the playability.
Flat out, just how fun the game is to play. The most important factor in rating a game.
Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai went on video to give a deeper look at the upcoming four-player fighting game for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
Sakurai lends some additional insight to the three new fighters in the video below. The Villager from Animal Crossing can pick up just about anything, from Mario’s fireball to Samus’ charged shot, and throw it back at his attacker. He can also dig a hole that immobilizes an enemy that steps in it, setting them up for an otherwise hard to connect with (but highly damaging) bowling ball drop.
Mega Man carries over his Mega Upper shuryuken-like attack from the Marvel vs. Capcom series, and deploys his robotic dog Rush as his air-jump boost. Most of the Robot Master weapons that Mega Man uses work as expected, but the iconic Metal Blade can stick into the ground and be picked up by Mega Man or another fighter for use as a one-off weapon.
According to Sakurai, the Wii Fit Trainer “uses various moves that she thinks will contribute to her health.”
Super Smash Bros. was just unveiled at this year's E3, and comes out on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS next year.
I can't wait to see what other characters join the roster.
I hope we get more videos like this. Also, the Villager is clearly a psychopath of some kind.
Looks great. I can see the Villager being a lot of peoples main and Megaman being popular with range fighters.
I honestly would like to know how the Wii U and 3DS touch screens are going to work in this installment before I get to hyped about the new SSB.
I missed out on the last Super Smash Bros. and its safe to say I will never make that mistake again. This looks awesome!
The wait is already killing me.
i hope they have different costumes (mario-dr. mario) instead of just different colors
I hope sonic is still in it.
I may just buy a wii u for this.
