Famous names from favourite Nintendo franchises and guest characters come together in a portable fighter filled with spectacular action on Nintendo 3DS family systems. With unique modes, online multiplayer, the ability to customise your fighter and the series’ biggest roster of playable fighters ever, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is truly a clash for the ages!

The basics of Super Smash Bros. are simple. Use your chosen character’s unique attacks and special moves to damage your opponent, then hit ‘em with a smash attack to send them flying off the stage! The higher your opponent’s damage – represented as a percentage – the farther they’ll fly when launched, so pummel away until you see them steaming, then unleash your strongest smash attack and watch your target skyrocket off the stage! Take on nearby challengers in local multiplayer, or bring the battle to faraway friends and foes in online matches.*

Mega Man, Little Mac, PAC-MAN and more new challengers join the longest roll call of famous fighters the Super Smash Bros. series has ever seen. You can even take on these gaming greats yourself as your Mii character – become a Sword Fighter, Gunner or Brawler and see how you stack up in a scrap!

Whoever you choose, customise their special moves and equipment to make them your own. Collect equipment during gameplay and equip them to strike the perfect balance of attack, defence and speed, or maximise one attribute to suit your personal play style. Special moves can be collected and customised too, enabling you to craft your perfect fighter to bring into battle!

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS both share the same roster of fighters, items and basic gameplay, but each boasts unique modes designed around its host format. On Nintendo 3DS, go toe-to-toe in StreetSmash, where you can battle against character tokens gathered via StreetPass. In Smash Run, battle enemies in a large labyrinth, then power your character up for the final battle in a unique mode packed with action, strategy, and completely compelling gameplay! And of course, it’s the first ever Super Smash Bros. game you can play on the go – perfect for throwing down against any opponent you meet, no matter where or when!

Add-on content

With purchasable add-on content, you can even expand your game with new stages, characters and Mii Fighter costumes. See all the possibilities at the official Super Smash Bros. website!

Essentially, amiibo (sold separately) are character figures that allow you to connect directly to your amiibo-compatible games. Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS can read your amiibo and transform them into what we call "figure players" that will join the battle with – or against – you!

Figure players can fight on their own and will grow in ability. Depending on how they're taught and raised, the capabilities and even the personalities of figure players will change, making each amiibo uniquely your own.

Figure Players Join the Battle

Adding figure players to the game is easy. When selecting fighters to play in a Smash battle mode, simply touch the NFC touchpoint with your amiibo and a figure player will appear in an empty fighter slot.

Figure Player Levels

The more your figure players fight, the quicker they will increase in level. The higher your FP’s level is, the better its attack and defence stats will be. The maximum level for an FP is 50. A figure player's levels will increase even faster if you take it to a friend’s house to play or let it fight against other FPs.


Figure players will pick up tactics from strong opponents. There is no maximum level for this – FPs will always be willing to learn from superior fighters!


Feed equipment you pick up in the game to your figure players to raise their attack, defence and speed. You can also give a figure player up to three abilities by feeding it equipment with special attributes, and you can customise your FP's special moves as you do with other fighters in Custom mode.

Your One-of-a-Kind amiibo


Figure players will obtain custom parts and gold during their battles – and they’ll then give these gifts to you after the fighting is done!


Using amiibo

Owners of New Nintendo 3DS or New Nintendo 3DS XL systems can tap amiibo to the NFC area on the bottom screen, while owners of original Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo 3DS XL or Nintendo 2DS systems can purchase the NFC Reader/Writer accessory to enjoy amiibo functionality in compatible software. Simply tap amiibo to the NFC Reader/Writer and away you go!
