Available on Wii U l Published by Nintendo l Developed by Sora Ltd.and Bandai Namco Games l Classified PG l Supports 1-8 players

REVIEW IN BRIEF > Another Nintendo system, another Super Smash Bros game. Not much has changed to the formula over the years but luckily that formula is still as much fun as ever.
