NINTENDO UNVEILS OVER 50 NEW FEATURES AND OTHER DETAILS FOR SUPER SMASH BROS. FOR WII U

For the First Time in the Series, Eight Players Can Join the Mayhem at Once

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 23, 2014 – Today Nintendo unleashed a deluge of information about its upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U game, including an eight-player mode, the ability to build and share custom stages and an exclusive soundtrack offer. Nintendo revealed these and many more details in a live-streamed video announcement. To view the video in its entirety, visit http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct.

“Super Smash Bros. fans got a full look today at the unbelievable variety of options and surprises that await them in the Wii U version of the game,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Millions of fans around the world already can’t get enough of the Nintendo 3DS game, and we want the Wii U version to build on that momentum.”

Some of the topics covered in the video include:

8-Player Smash: In a major first for the franchise, a special mode lets eight players fight simultaneously in local multiplayer. This option appears only in the Wii U version, and lets players compete on even larger stages to accommodate all the characters.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U - 8-Player Smash

amiibo Figures: When a player touches an amiibo figure to the Wii U GamePad, the character joins as a “figure player.” The amiibo figures can gain levels to become stronger and add equipment as they gain experience through battling. Players can have amiibo fight one another, and amiibo will bring you presents from the battles they fight in.

Custom Stage Creation: The touch screen of the Wii U GamePad makes it easier than ever for players to build their own stages and eventually share them with friends and other players around the world using broadband Internet access.
Controls: Players who own the Nintendo 3DS version of the game can use their Nintendo 3DS systems to control the action on the TV screen, in addition to the many other control options available.

Importing Fighters: Fans of the Nintendo 3DS version of the game can immediately benefit from the fruits of their smashing labors. Players can import custom Nintendo 3DS fighters to the Wii U game, along with their customized equipment, costumes and hats.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U - Mewtwo

Special Soundtrack Offer: Everyone who buys both the Nintendo 3DS and the Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. and registers both games on Club Nintendo by Jan. 13 will receive a two-disc soundtrack of music from the games.

Mewtwo: Like the soundtrack, this series veteran fighter will be made available as free downloadable content in spring of 2015 for anyone who buys both versions of the game.

Modes: The Wii U version of the game offers many new modes and different ways to play that keep players coming back for more:

  • Smash Tour: World Smash is a fighting party game that looks like a board game. Players use items, spin a wheel and advance around the map. Up to four players can compete at once as they navigate the board and gain fighters and power-ups they can use in a final battle.
  • Special Smash Mode: Players can customize battles with unique parameters.
  • Coin Battles: Players compete to collect coins from other players.
  • Stamina Matches: Players fight until their hit points reach zero.
  • Classic Mode: One or two players fight through a series of battles and advance as long as they survive. Many random events can shake things up, and players can adjust the intensity settings. The more difficult the game, the greater the rewards.
  • All-Star Mode: Like in the Nintendo 3DS version, opponents appear in chronological order. Only this time, the newest fighters appear before the older ones, and two players can battle through this mode together.
  • Event Mode: One or two players take on set character- and theme-based battles. Clearing stages helps players see the way forward.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U - Smash Tour

Masterpieces: This menu gives players a peek into the past lives of some of the Super Smash Bros. characters. Players can play cut-down versions of the characters’ greatest games.

Stages: The Wii U game offers more stages than any game in the series. The expanded Big Battlefield makes its debut in addition to the traditional Battlefield Stage. The Great Cave Offensive, based on the underground labyrinth found in Kirby games, challenges players to avoid potentially lethal danger zones – or throw their opponents into them. The Jungle Hijinxs stage, based on Donkey Kong Country Returns, lets players fight in the foreground and background. Blast barrels shoot players from front to back and vice versa.

Tunes: The game includes hundreds of music tracks, songs and jingles that players can listen to and settings to customize what music plays during game play. Players add songs to their library by collecting CDs that appear while smashing or after completing challenges.

Movies: When players clear Classic or All-Star modes, they’ll be treated to a brief movie featuring whichever fighter they used. Every fighter has a movie, so it’ll be a challenge to view them all.

Ridley. Yes, Ridley: Fans have been clamoring for Ridley to appear in a Super Smash Bros. game for a while, and now they’re getting their wish. But true to form, Ridley appears in an unexpected way.

Players will find him in the Metroid series-inspired Pyrosphere stage, but he does more than just hassle players. If one player attacks Ridley enough, Ridley will join that fighter’s side and attack others. Players (including the one on Ridley’s side) can KO Ridley to earn a point toward the match result total. And if Ridley consumes enough energy, he will become Meta Ridley and all the more vicious.

Characters: The Wii U version offers 40 characters and the use of Mii characters from the start. Each character’s moves match those found in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, so players who hone their skills in the portable game will have an edge over opponents in the console version of the game.

Remember that Wii U and Nintendo 3DS feature parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit http://www.nintendo.com/wiiu or http://www.nintendo.com/3ds.

Share Your Art Using Miiverse, Local Wireless or By Printing Using an SD Card

Pokémon Art Academy box art

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 23, 2014 – Pikachu is one of the most recognizable video game characters in the world, but sitting down to draw him without a guide is trickier than you might think. Go ahead. Give it a shot.

It was tough, right? Lucky for you and your Pikachu-drawing skills, Pokémon Art Academy is launching exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 24. The game teaches you to draw Pokémon from every known region. By following along with a series of fun step-by-step lessons – starting with simple drawings and leading to more complex techniques – artists of all skill levels can learn to perfect the art of drawing various Pokémon. Many Pokémon images are available in the game, including fan favorites like Treecko, Torchic and Mudkip, the Partner Pokémon from the upcoming Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire games for Nintendo 3DS.

“Pokémon Art Academy makes it easy for people of all ages to learn to draw their favorite characters,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “It’s another example of how Nintendo maximizes the capabilities of its hardware systems to deliver smiles and compelling experiences to consumers in unique ways.”

EMBARK ON A JOURNEY, LIVE THE ADVENTURE AND GET A LIFE IN FANTASY LIFE

New Game for Nintendo 3DS Lets Players Shape Their Own Experience

Fantasy Life Box Art

REDMOND, Wash., Oct. 22, 2014 – Imagine a role-playing game in which players can become much more than the traditional sword-wielding hero. Imagine stepping into the shoes of a cook, or a miner, or a tailor, or even the blacksmith that makes the swords equipped by the classic hero. Well, imagine no more. Fantasy Life launches exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems on Oct. 24. The game lets players experience their dream lives with more than 12 different Life Classes that offer new ways to play and completely transform the role-playing game experience.

“Whether crafting, casting, hunting or battling, Fantasy Life offers an experience for all types of players,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “With so many different ways to play, all members of the family, as well as players of all skill levels, can find a Life that’s right for them.”

Fantasy Life represents a refreshing mashup of role-playing game and life simulator. Players forge their paths through a fantasy world full of paladins, pirates and dragons to save the world of Reveria from destruction. Along the way, they can choose from 12 different Life Classes and start the Life that best suits them. Each Life Class, like the combat-heavy Paladin, resource-gathering Woodcutter and crafting-focused Carpenter, comes with a separate set of skills to learn. Once learned, players can switch Life Classes at virtually any time to master more skills and abilities. All Life Classes are equally effective at progressing through the game, and players can use all skills learned in a previous Life Class. This encourages players to switch Life Classes as often as possible, resulting in a robust and interesting journey.

Each Life Class in Fantasy Life has its own gear, items and Quests, as well as an accompanying storyline. Completing Quests helps advance the story, as players explore a vast open world with distinct areas like a castle town, grassy plains, vast desert and dark caves. Players that traverse an area as one Life Class can return later with another Life Class to access new items and resources. In Fantasy Life, players’ choices help shape their adventures, not just their in-game jobs.

Fantasy Life for 3DS

While Fantasy Life can be completed solo, players can team up with friends to tackle difficult enemies and areas through local wireless or online with people who have a wireless broadband Internet connection. There’s even an in-game communication system in Ally mode that allows players to chat in the game with their registered Nintendo 3DS friends. By activating the StreetPass feature, players can even share character data with other players and encounter visiting characters in their in-game worlds.
