Super Smash Bros For Nintendo 3DS Box Art


Famous Nintendo characters duke it out in the fourth installment of the Super Smash Bros series for Nintendo 3DS.                           

Character RosterEdit

The Roster is identical in both versions of the games.

All characters from the N64 Original remain intact.

Dropped characters from Melee include: Roy, Pichu, Ice Climbers, Marth and Young Link. Ice Climbers were planned playable during development, however  they were unable to work with the 3DS version and were ultimately dropped, in order to keep both rosters symmetric. Toon Link replaces the role of Young Link.

Dropped characters from Brawl include: Snake, Squirtle, Venasaur and Wolf.

Zelda and Shiek are still in the game, but now have their own seperate slot and moveset.

Similiarly, Zero Suit Samus and Samus now have their own slot and Samus' Final Smash will no longer shatter her armour.

Pokemon Trainer may be gone, but Charizard returns as a stand-alone fighter.

Lucas was originally absent from the game, but was later added as a DLC Character shortly after both the Wii U and 3DS versions were released.
