Gamplay of Super Smash Bro for Nintendo 3ds
In Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3ds you can do many different things in the game from doing a random battle as your favorite character or you can earn trophies. There are many things that you can do while you’re playing this fun arcade style fighting game. You can spend your time playing by yourself to unlock all the different character and stages or use the new street pass features to play against other people you meet, No matter what route you take this game will be a lot of fun to play. I will be telling you about some of the different game modes that you can play as in Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3ds.
The Modes And Minis of Super Smash Bro for Nintendo 3ds
Smash Mode is a pretty simple fighting area of the game where you pick which character you play as and the character the CPU will use. You can also change the level of in-tenseness and you can pick from a wide assortment of different stages that can be simple to play in and also very hard because of different affects that certain map may have. You can also pick which weapons you want to appear and not want to appear. You can change the time limit given and you can change the different level of handicap.
In Classic Mode you play as a character of your choosing and you must pick different route to go through and fight different character based on the route that you pick. You can gain trophies and money for doing this and it also the way that you end up completing the game. The final boss to the game is either a giant hand or a pair of giant hands depending on which of the final two routes you pick. It also features an intensity gauge in which you can make go higher by paying more coins to make classic mode harder.
In Trophy Rush you add coins to add more time to the timer and then you must smash boxes so that they don’t stack above the line, If you let the boxes go above the line for too long then the line floor will give and you will lose everything on the floor and some time because you will end up dying. When you find special blocks and smash them it builds up the meter which then activates a mode where the only blocks dropped are to either give you coins or trophies and the more of this blocks you smash the more money and trophies you will get in the end of the round.
Smash run is a mode in which you run around a map gaining powers by destroying non character monster. When your time is up then you go to the final battle in which you gain more power the more power up you grab then you must defeat the four other player that have also been gaining Power up. You always end up going to this round even if you collect very little power up but if you don’t get enough then the enemy will easily smash you off the stage.
There also a few more mini games such as smacking a bomb across the field and trying to collect points by exploding more boxes or hitting a sandbag to see how far you can launch it within the time limit but perhaps on the coolest new features is the fact that you can use your mii as a character to play against others. You can either use sword type mii fighter or a gun type mii fighter or a fist type mii fighter. You can change the costume and moves on almost every character in the game. As a last bonus I will show a list of how to gain the extra hidden character that you usually have to figure out.
