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?
Just showed up at my doorstep (GameCube controller bundle). I'll add everyone who I haven't already added and join the fracas ASAP.

I'm not sure when I'll get it but I'll still toss my name into the pot for now.

NNID: Mop_it_up

I recently changed my Mii name to "Mop it up" to help avoid confusion and keep things consistent.

Well it does if you keep playing in the same match.. .but as soon as you leave, you have to re-select it again. It's annoying if I forget to do it...

This is incredibly annoying.

Got my hard drive working (had the wrong cable) and downloaded the game last night. Up and running now! Everything is in Spanish because my wife has been playing Wind Waker and changed the system language for an optimal experience. I understand it all of course, but not as quick on the uptake as I would be otherwise.

Are people playing? I'm not sure what to do first, but online sounds as good as anything.


Wasn't it the same in Brawl?

@Jargon I never played Brawl.

Alright, I added y'all that are in the OP that I hadn't already.

First try at online with anyone was a disaster. Complete slideshow and then disconnected. Someone try With Friends with me!
11/22/14, 03:46   
Was getting some slowdown so I'm moving the game to the console drive and it's taking forever. Ughhh

Crazy Orders is TUFF That stamina battle against 3 foes (two of which do not have stamina) and the under 10HP failure that is my Bowser.

I do really like how Bowser feels now. His side smash takes a little getting used to, since I'm still stuck with his headbutt from Melee or whatever, but man he can be a real nasty nasty when he gets rollin

Just had a good time with Alex, Kenny, Smerd and I think Octorockin. I did better than I had any right to do on a few of those matches. It was fun.
11/22/14, 05:27   

Did you set it up in advance? I see people playing but no way to join
11/22/14, 05:32   

Nah, I just created a room and beat up on a sandbag for 15 minutes waiting for someone.

It should at least allow you to play CPU matches while you wait.

Edit: wanna play a couple of rounds? Even though I suck?

I'm actually just stepping out. I'd love to play soon though!
11/22/14, 05:50   
Cool. I think I'm gonna play quite a bit with my brother-in-law tomorrow. So I should be around.
11/22/14, 05:51   
Join me! Also I apparently suck at this game. Blegh. What a fall from grace. I don't really know what I'm doing wrong. I guess this game just tends to leave you way more open for attacks than Melee. I just fought a guy for an hour and beat him...once?

Also the lag wasn't the worst but it hasn't been great. I don't know what people are saying when they have some lagless games. I hope it can be better?

I just tried to but now it's full! Waahhh! /waluigi
11/22/14, 06:32   
I opened up a room cause apparently everyone is full or i'm not friends or something.
11/22/14, 06:42   
Why doesn't anyone use the chat?


I felt proud of that one. You all are tough.

Haha... I think Pogues been trying to play an itemless match 2 times in a row and... We keep picking Pyrosphere.

Are things happening for your characters a bit after you hit the buttons? It's kind of annoying :(
