Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Discussion (Nintendo Wii U) [game]
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U on the Wii U
9.19/10 from 34 user ratings

Welcome to the official discussion thread for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U on the Wii U!

To start, please add this game to your log, add it to your collection (if applicable), and (when you are ready) rate it using the link above!

Every new generation a great dawn emerges where a new game in the acclaimed Super Smash Bros. series graces Nintendo's newest consoles… for the Wii U, that time is almost upon us. Nintendo is truly pulling out all the stops with this one. Here's the breakdown on what we can expect… (Learn more at the Super Smash Bros. website.)

1.) 45+ playable characters (new characters, returning fighters, or accessible via alt costumes)
2.) Releasing November 21st, November 28th, or December 5th depending on your region
3.) Tons of content; from trophies to levels to music tracks to items to pokemon to modes… it seemingly never ends!
4.) Customizable Move-sets
5.) Many control setups; Wii U Gamepad, standard Wii U options, Gamecube controllers, even your 3DS!
6.) Online capable (and encouraged)
7.) Check out Nintendo's 50 Things You Should Know about Smash Bros!
8.) Stages exclusive to the Wii U version. Some epic stages!
9.) Amiibo Support for all existing Amiibos
10.) Gameplay lands somewhere between Melee and Brawl

As you can see, there really is something for everyone, perhaps more than ever before. As I wrote this whole post up, I was listening to the Super Smash Bros. Brawl soundtrack and remembering the hours and days and weeks and months of fun I've had with that game. This will be no different and really will shake the Wii U community up in the best ways. Nintendo is on the eve of quite possible the most acclaimed game the console will have. This is a very exciting moment for Nintendo gamers. Speaking back on the music, you can listen to a bunch of neat samples from the upcoming game at the SmashBros.com Music Page. Be sure to check out Kapp'n's Song! It's a personal favorite of mine. The 3DS version is to have two-songs per stage but the Wii U version is meant to have that and more, even some songs from past games as well.

Please enjoy a few of my favorite images found on the official Super Smash Bros. website.

The release date in North America is November 21st and it was just moved up to November 28th in Europe. For all other regions you can expect December 5th. In the mean time, there's always the 3DS version which looks incredible in it's own right! You can discuss it in Jargon's thread here; Super Smash Bros. 3DS. We should aim to keep this thread focused on the Wii U version so that the 3DS discussion ends up in it's right place. Keep in mind that the Daily Updates are still being provided by Sakurai (for a few more weeks at least) and the best place to find and discuss those is Stephen's Super Smash Bros. News Discussion (Roster Spoilers) Now With Daily Images thread. I do my best to update that daily with the Sakurai posts.

Who is your main? What are you most excited for? Finally, be sure to have your friends added on your Wii U! I'll do my best to keep this thread updated with the various users who are playing this online.

Why not sign up for a (free) account?
The release date is less than two weeks away!!! Videos in HD of various things are starting to exist. This was quite a funny little video of Trophy Rush Mode Co-Op. I can't wait to play this freakin' game despite pretty much unlocking and doing everything so far in the 3DS version. Please note the character spoilers (for those who haven't watched all the released character trailers or been on the Super Smash Bros. website).

I am so ridiculously hyped for this.
It's funny, because the 3DS one JUST CAME OUT!

Pikachu is my main, although I really enjoy a large chunk of the roster. From the newbies, I really enjoy Pac Man and Bowser Jr. and his alts (who is actually in the starting roster in the WIi U game, but I spoiler tagged it anyway).

I'm mostly excited for the new levels!

Oh, and my NNID stuff (in the order you have it in the OP) is:

With all due respect Pokepal, this thread pre-dates yours by a few weeks but we tend to combine this sort of information with the main discussion thread. We have a history of this and it's also convenient. I appreciate your other thread's attempt to bring the community together and I think in the end all we want is so be connected, play some games, and have fun. Many of us are connected from past game experiences too. In the end, it's just a list, nothing personal.

I can't wait... other than my wife is making me wait until Christmas. I told her Captain Toad would be PERFECT for Christmas... and she reminds me we're buying a house and don't need to spend money on things. Boo. I'll see you guys on Christmas.

My attempts to get an external hard drive going before the game comes out so that I can download it have failed. I guess I'll just stick with my usual physical copy for retail console games.
11/10/14, 06:02   
Anything you can delete in the meantime and just re download later?

I'm trying to prepare for 8 player Smash and so I looked up the Gamecube controller adapter and apparently it is only compatible with Smash Bros.?!

"The GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U is compatible with Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U specifically - it is not compatible with any other Wii U software," Nintendo said in a statement issued to GameSpot.

I hope this is some weird misunderstanding, but I could totally see Nintendo making an adapter that can't be used with any other games for reasons that no one would ever understand.

I'm still buying it of course.

@Zero Nope, it's Smash only unless they specifically include it in later games. You can't use Gamecube controllers as, like, Pro Controllers or whatever.
11/17/14, 05:06   

It's pretty annoying. I would've liked to use GCN controllers for Wii-compatible games, VC games, etc. Oh well, I'll still get my money's worth with Smash.
11/17/14, 05:15   
@nate38 No I get that it isn't compatible with past games, but it sort of sounds like it won't be compatible with future games either. Like, why build this thing that allows for local 8 player but not make it able to be used with other future games?!
11/17/14, 05:18   
11/20/14, 13:13   
I have the GCN controller bundle pre-ordered, so...it gets here when it gets here. Tomorrow or Saturday hopefully...
11/20/14, 14:56   

Preordered through who? I too have my bundle preordered, through Amazon.com

I was semi-tempted to buy just the adapter and use my old GameCube controllers but the sticks on that thing are in terrible condition. I had heard of people having issues with them before but it seems the sticks themselves have kind of melted, forming a sticky layer on top. Even after thoroughly cleaning them, they feel sticky and softer than they should be. I guess I'll just stick with my Wii U classic controller.

I was unable to preorder the bundle because I waited too long... I guess Nintendo underestimated the demand, which is a bummer.

As of now, I don't know what my next move is. Maybe I'll wake my ass up early and try to find it in stores somewhere. I just hope I can find the adapter somewhere, because my Wavebirds are still in great condition. I'm pretty gentle on controllers.

I've got the game (and a Kirby amiibo) pre-ordered from Toys 'R Us, so I'm expecting it to come in the mail next week. I can wait. I'm considering getting a Wii Ethernet Adapter and the Hori Gamecube-style classic controller. Or maybe I'll just wait until after I get the game to see if I want/need those.

Game is pre-downloaded and Gamecube adapter is getting picked up at midnight.
11/20/14, 16:52   
Got the game pre-downloaded, but nothing on the Gamecube adapter. May pick it up this weekend, but right now not really concerned about it.

I'm hopeful this unlocks at 11pm for me, being CST. Would be nice to save that hour.
