Eight-Player Smash battles beckon in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
As part of their Super Smash Bros. for Wii U “50 Must-See Things” presentation, Nintendo have revealed that manic Eight-Player Smash battles will appear for the first time.
With only Time and Stock rule settings available, players can choose to play Team Battles where they can split themselves up into four teams. With so many players fighting for glory, you can only battle on certain larger stages as well. For those worried that they won’t be able to enjoy how hectic this will be, remember that CPU and Figure Player (FP) through amiibo can step into the ring.
Nintendo have additionally detailed that these controller combinations can be used in eight-player battles:
– Wii U GamePad (Max 1)
– Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus* (Max 7)
– Wii U Pro Controller (Max 7)
– Nintendo GameCube controller** (Max 8)
– Nintendo 3DS series system*** (Max 8)
* Includes expansion controllers (such as the Nunchuk or Classic Controller Pro).
** Two GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U accessories are required to connect eight GameCube controllers (each sold separately)
*** In order to use a Nintendo 3DS as a controller, each Nintendo 3DS system must have Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS.
