Fighting series goes portable to broad critical acclaim
The wait is almost over, with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS arriving this week, on 3rd October, to take on South Africa. Fans can get their hands on the first portable outing for the Smash Bros. series and experience a huge wealth of content, including a roster of over 40 playable characters made up of new challengers and favourite veterans, the Nintendo 3DS-exclusive Smash Run mode, and online For Glory and For Fun modes that allow players to challenge the world.
Critics throughout Europe and South Africa have praised the series’ jump to portable play across the board:
Nintendo Life, 9 out of 10 – “Remarkable production values combined with a staggering amount of content and fan service make Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS an entertaining, rewarding and downright addictive title that’s immensely hard to put down.”
Videogamer,com, 9 out of 10 – “Packing a substantial amount of content and the same fantastic gameplay as its home console siblings, it gives the forthcoming Wii U version an awful lot to live up to.”
ITF Gaming, 9 out of 10: “Super Smash Bros. on the 3DS features an epic amount of content, which ultimately offers up a Smashing good time.”
One Large Prawn, 9 out of 10 –”Super Smash Bros. for 3DS is definitely one of the best fighting games for the handheld, and it’s not something you’re going to tire of very quickly, either. Everyone who has ever played a “Smash Bros” game has been in hot anticipation of this title, and if there’s one thing it does and does well, it’s delivers in the most eye-popping, smashtastic way possible.”
GES, 4.5 out of 5 – “Super Smash Bros is as the name implies. Super-fast and Smashingly Fun! Everything you want in a Fighting Game.”
Stuff Magazine – “Super Smash Bros. 3DS is shaping up to be as engaging as Super Smash Bros. Brawl – and that’s no mean feat at all.”
