Smash Bros. 3DS gets a few more single-player hooks

Nintendo has previously discussed single-player content for Super Smash Bros. on the 3DS, including the replacement for Adventure Mode, Smash Run, a battle for powerups that concludes with stat-boosted brawls. Savvy fans might have caught every detail between Smash director Masahiro Sakurai's updates and the news avalanche that is E3, but today's batch of details offer a tidied, accumulative look of what fans can take a swing at while alone and on the go.


For starters, Classic mode will run its course on the 3DS, but it's not the linear pathway fans have fought through in previous Smash games: This take will offer branching pathways littered with varied match types, including 1 vs. 1 fights, CPU-supplemented team battles, multi-opponent groups, all-at-once bouts and "even more." Like previous Classic modes, there's still potential for rivals to be giant-sized. When a round is cleared, victors will be rewarded with trophies, gold or "custom parts" for characters.

In a style similar to Kid Icarus: Uprising's handling of difficulty, Smash players will be faced with a Heatin' Up scale before a game. The higher the intensity a player selects from a 0-to-9 range, the higher the payout will be. Two more sub modes will join the previously announced Target Blast, too: Home-Run Contest and Multi-Man Smash. The full scope of tweaks to either mode have not been detailed, though Home Run will have thicker glass and double speed, as noted by Pure Nintendo.
