Tired of saving princesses or destroy bosses, sometimes, to break the routine, even the characters of Nintendo meet for beating each of thrashing. As in Super Smash Bros. Wii U, home version of the fighting game released in early October on 3DS and now available on the Nintendo console.
In the game Mario, Luigi, Donkey Kong, Pikachu and all the other stars in the universe Nintendo is facing the death (so to speak) in a series of themed arenas. Each character is different and has a unique set of moves: the more you damage the opponents and the easier it is to defeat them, throwing them off the screen with a well-aimed blow called, precisely, Smash. The wrestlers available are more than 40, including old favorites such as arcade Pac-Man, and the couple Sonic / MegaMan, from games targati Sega.
The longevity of the game is virtually endless, with many items and secrets to unlock through many modes, both offline and online, from the classic single player adventure to the multiplayer games, going through the challenges and mini-games. For the first time also is available confrontation with 8 players simultaneously, although only in local multiplayer. Too bad for the story mode, that if in the previous episode had been done on purpose, Wii U has been reduced to a mere succession of fights without any plot, with less and less boss missions to complete. While we enjoyed the chance to fight using their Mii avatars virtual Nintendo, personalizing moves and gear.
Super Smash Bros. is also the first Nintendo title to exploit Amiibo, the interactive dolls modeled on those of Skylanders and Disney Infinity: just bring a small statue of the sensor NFC Gamepad to create a character and start retrofitted with workouts and special items. Once stored in the memory of the puppet, the fighters Amiibo may be called into battle as helpers. Sure, it's not much, but when you consider that Amiibo will work from now on with almost all Nintendo games, surprises in the future could be very interesting.
Super Smash Bros. is now available on Wii U at a recommended price of € 59.90, while the first 12 Amiibo at 14.90 euro each.
