In Super Smash Bros.
for Wii U, you will compete with classic players from the Super Smash Bros. series, along with new challengers like Mega Man, Little Mac or newly announced Palutena, the Goddess of Light from the Kid Icarus games. For the first time, players can even compete as their own Mii characters. They can also use a variety of control methods during the battles, including Nintendo GameCube controllers - the longtime controller of choice for hardcore Super Smash Bros. players.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is out now in Europe along with 12 amiibo - Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Donkey Kong, Link, Fox, Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pikachu, Kirby and Marth. In Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, after tapping an amiibo figure to the GamePad, the amiibo appears on the selection screen as a custom version of the character in the game. Players don't control the amiibo character itself; instead it becomes a Figure Player and acts as their battle companion, fighting alongside or against them.
Players can use amiibo as a partner, brawl with them in teams or have amiibo battle each other. amiibo gradually level up and learn how to fight through battles with human players, computer players and other amiibo characters.
