Super Smash Bros. isn’t for the faint-hearted. Or those with motion sickness, or an aversion to freaking balls-out crazy. It’s not technically a fighting game, more of a party game with Mario punching Bowser in his big green gonads and suchlike.
A four-player match is pretty freaking ridiculous as it is. Free-for-alls always descend into chaos, particularly when items and special rules are in play. With Bob-ombs flying everywhere, a Final Smash or two and the speed increased, the crazy-ass is strong with this one.
But that’s just not enough for the mad, mad bastards at Nintendo. The upcoming Wii U installment is to double the frantic funtimes, with new eight player matches.
If you’ve gotten your Smash on previously, right about now you’ll be wondering how in holy hell this could possibly work. On hearing the announcement, my initial thought was ‘clustereff.’ Now that we can see it in action? Super ultra double clustereff confirmed.
Feast your bemused eyes on Kotaku’s footage right over here, a typical 8-man brawl on Yoshi’s Island. It’s nuts, even before the Metroid comes to suck some face.
