13th August 2014 – European Smash Bros. fans are set for a treat when the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Limited Edition Pack launches simultaneously with Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS on 3rd October. This package gives fans the chance to own a red Nintendo 3DS XL* system with a striking Super Smash Bros. motif emblazoned on the front, available whilst stocks last. This limited edition hardware comes with a pre-installed digital copy of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, so players can get straight into battle, right out of the box.
To celebrate the legacy of many popular fighters on the Super Smash Bros. roster, Nintendo also announces today that over the span of two weeks in August there will be Nintendo eShop discounts of up to 50% on more than 25 downloadable retail and Virtual Console titles on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS, as well as Wii U.
The Super Smash Bros. Character Sale: New Challengers on Nintendo eShop from 14th – 21st August** features the following titles starring new challengers from the Super Smash Bros. roster:
From 21st - 28th August, the Super Smash Bros. Character Sale: Veteran Fighters will let players get reacquainted with characters returning to the Super Smash Bros. series. To find out which titles will go on sale that week, stay tuned to Nintendo eShop, the Super Smash Bros. Facebook page or the Nintendo website. With over 25 games on Nintendo eShop on sale during August, it’s a perfect time to meet the colourful cast of Super Smash Bros ahead of 3rd October.
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS is the first portable entry in the renowned series and lets up to four players battle each other locally or online using some of gaming’s most iconic characters. Compete with veteran characters from the series such as Mario, Link, Samus, Sonic, Pikachu and – just revealed today – Meta Knight, along with new challengers like Mega Man, Little Mac, PAC-MAN and Palutena, while for the first time players can also compete using their own Mii characters. Also brand new to the series is the ability to customise different aspects of your fighter, when playing locally or online with registered friends in a variety of multiplayer modes.
Smash and crash through Smash Run, a new mode exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS version that gives up to four players five minutes to explore a huge battlefield, taking down enemies from almost every major Nintendo franchise and multiple third-party partners. Defeated enemies leave behind power-ups, and players who collect the most power-ups have advantages when – once time runs out – the final battle for the champion begins. It’s also possible to hone your skills in activities such as the new Target Blast, where you attack a bomb to charge it up then launch it at a range of targets to cause a chain reaction for a high score.
Fight against friends and family locally or online, or battle random challengers all over the world online in “For Fun” or “For Glory” modes. It’s a genuine, massive Super Smash Bros. experience that’s available to play on the go, any time, anywhere. It’s also the perfect way to get to grips with the huge roster of fighters and their special moves, who will all return for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U when that game launches in winter 2014.
Show off your fighting flair with the Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Limited Edition Pack, launching simultaneously with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS in Europe on 3rd October 2014, and dig into the legacy of its colourful cast of fighters with two weeks of sales on over 25 games for Nintendo 3DS and 2DS, as well as Wii U, on Nintendo eShop.
