Jonesing for a new Super Smash Bros. game? Hope you own a 3DS: Nintendo has announced that the mobile version of the series' latest entry will land first, debuting this summer. The Wii U version will arrive this year too, but it won't be available until winter, presumably to make the most out of the holiday season. Nintendo teased the launch windows with a tweet right before today's Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct, where Masahiro Sakurai (the game's director) updated players on the game's latest developments.

In addition to showing off the standard deluge of stages and new characters (Sheik, Zero Suit Samus, Yoshi and Pokemon's Charizard and Greninja, specifically), Sakurai explained the new games' disparate multiplayer modes: "For Fun" and "For Glory." Gamers playing "for fun" will play with randomized items and stages, counting only victories to the players record - gamers looking for glory, however, will play on simple, flat stages with no items. In "For Glory" mode, both wins and losses count against the player's record. Finally the 3DS version comes with an exclusive battle game called "Smash Run," where up to four players navigate a timed obstacle course to collect power ups and fight enemies before ultimately facing each other in a final battle. Miss Nintendo's live broadcast? Not to worry: we've embedded the full presentation right here.
