For all their talk about being the family friendly console, Nintendo sure do know how to make a game that makes you want to punch your brother. First there was Mario Kart, which turned people from civil siblings into opponents in a war for first place. After Mario Kart, Nintendo decided that their work in causing family dissent wasn’t completed, so with this in mind they released Super Smash Bros. Battles were fought and hair was pulled as brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers attempted to claim victory. That was quite a few years ago and now that the bruises have healed and everyone is talking to each other again Nintendo have decided to fan the flames of war again.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U finally has a release date and luckily it isn’t too far away. Saturday 6 December is the day the war starts again so Wii U gamers will be able to once again start a prolonged battle of attrition with their loved ones. For folks that have held on to their GameCube controllers there is even a version coming with an adaptor so that this once great weapon of destruction can rise again. Because virtual disharmony isn’t enough for Nintendo, they have decided to include Amiibo support (think Nintendo Skylanders) with the game. So now you will have something physical to throw at your uncle when his Pikachu wins for the 10th time in a row.
So charge your lightning attack, eat some bananas and grab that fire flower because your sister thinks you don’t stand a chance. You aren’t going to let her get away with that are you?
