Did You Know?


Although Nintendo said they wanted director Masahiro Sakurai to return to the series if a third Smash Brothers game were to be made after Melee, Sakurai apparently wasn't contacted when a third game was announced. Soon after a private meeting was held between Sakurai and the president of the Nintendo Company where Sakurai was formally asked to direct the next game. See more »


Ness refers to his magic attacks as "PK" attacks. This is supposed to be "PSI." (The Earthbound games use the term PSI to refer to magic, though an early beta version of the game used PK, and this is probably what caused the error.) See more »

As predicted this game is superior than the first 2.
18 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I always pictured the third Super Smash Bros. game to be even better than the previous one. And I was right, when I first played the long awaited game.

This game has everything you wish to see in a Super Smash Bros. game. More characters as fighters. Including some that were meant to be part of the series for sometime. More challenges, and endless game play.

The thing to look forward to this game is the entirely original adventure mode, that's better than the one from mêlée. It's where you unlock most of the hidden fighters. As well as witnessing cinema-tics of the entirely original story that's told in the Adventure game. Something that was never featured in the previous games. So you'll witness some great computer graphics on the special effects and surroundings.

Not only that, but as well as an expanded version of trophy collection, improved home run contest, target practice, and the return of the familiar classic mode.

The music, concept, and detail of the whole game is all professionally made. There's nothing to hate about the game, it's everything you want a sequel of a great franchise to be. So don't hesitate in buying the game. It's one of the best fighter games you'll ever see on the Nintendo Wii.

And keep thinking to yourself how much greater a 4th Super Smash Bros. would be from years from now.
