Nintendo has been looking for the "killer app" for their Wii U that will drive sales and if you believe everything you read about the new Super Smash Bros., they may just have struck gold. In time for the holidays, the latest installment in the Smash Bros. legacy arrives this Friday - a week before the infamous Black Friday sales next week and you can bet that you'll be able to pick up a Wii U & Smash Bros for a steal. What makes it so great? Tons of gameplay as well as some insane 8-player multiplayer action. If I can snag one of these for cheap, I may finally upgrade my console - to a Wii U. Really.
I can't believe I just said that.
The Wii U version of Smash Bros. is very similar to the version that launched on 3DS back in October. The series' portable debut was a surprisingly solid outing; but with its fast pace and huge stages, Smash Bros. isn’t necessarily the best fit for a handheld, and when you play on Wii U the difference is obvious — Smash Bros. can finally breathe again. Playing the game on a television feels like stretching your legs, as you can finally test the limits of a level without having to worry about the camera zooming out and characters shrinking down to minuscule proportions.
