3. A New Super Smash Bros is Coming
Thats right, Super Smash Bros, one of the most popular brawler franchises ever made, is getting a new title on the Wii-U and 3DS. Super Smash Bros Melee was possible the only decent game on the GameCube, and Brawl was a pretty strong sequel, so the announcement of Super Smash Bros (which currently doesnt have a suffix) has already stirred up a fair amount of anticipation.
A few characters were confirmed for the game, including newcomers Mega Man, a cult classic who hasnt had a game of his own in some time, Villager, the main character from the quirky Animal Crossing series, and the Wii Fit Trainer, the strange featureless character from Wii Fit that demonstrates Yoga movements. The announcement videos show a few attacks for each character, but its the Wii Fit Trainer that looks to have the most interesting set, comprised of what looks like different types of stretches and exercises.
Mario, Kirby, Link, Donkey Kong, Samus, Bowser, Pikachu, Pit, and Fox have all been confirmed to return, with at least six other characters set to be revealed before release. Theres no indication yet as to whether these will be new additions to the cast or characters that appeared in the previous games, but its safe to assume theyll be at least a couple more Pokémon in there somewhere.
The Wii-U edition looks pretty similar to Brawl in terms of graphics, and the gameplays probably not too different from its predecessors either, but hopefully the developers have added enough new features to keep the experience feeling fresh.
