For the past six months The Game Theorists’ contributor Trailer Drake has been doing a Smash Move Analysis of several characters from Super Smash Bros for 3DS and WIIU.

Drake takes to the lore of Zelda and tries to find where this iconic smash level got its inspiration from. Take a look at the analysis after…

With the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U and all the hype following the GameCube controller compatibility, it seems that PDP has decided to create something special for the occasion.

For those Zelda fans who are on the fence about Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo UK has a trailer with a focus on our hero.  In the recently released “A Link to the Smash” video, Nintendo interviews Smash fans (some in costume!) regarding how they feel about the new game and how Link plays in it.  Those interviewed seem to agree that Link has been improved since previous entries and is a very versatile character (e.g. long-range attacks, short-range, etc.), although some note that…

Following a plethora of hints, screenshots, and leaks, we now have the official confirmation that what Sakurai hinted at is happening: There will be a Nintendo Direct for the game for which we’ve all been waiting.

Super Smash Bros. is always filled with tons of hidden unlockables and the new iteration for the 3DS and Wii U are no different. Thankfully, the folks over at Gamnesia have put together a complete guide for all the Super Smash Bros 3DS Unlockables that are found within the game.

I made sure to include some footage after the jump, so if you’re a fan of using Link in Smash Bros., you’ll definitely want to check it out! Hit the jump to see more!
