Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Screens - Issue Fifty Two

Nightmare Wizard! Skimpy Samus?! Lord Ghirahim! More!

The hype keeps rolling on for Super Smash Bros., with official — and less official — updates showing us what we can expect when it arrives on the 3DS in early October. There's a sense that Masahiro Sakurai is getting to the nitty-gritty details.

Sakurai-san's posts in the Director's Room Miiverse community continue to make some headlines. Last week brought some nice details, such as the fact you'll be able to play music from the 3DS version while the system is in sleep mode. The negative Yin to that Yang — arguably — were some skimpy Samus outfits, which have naturally caused some debate.

Plenty to consider this time; you can check out last week's Pic of the Day entries below — click on the date heading to visit the posts in question and give them a Yeah.

Choose your songs and play with features on the bottom screen. You can listen to character voices, too. One of the new highlights for this feature is the "Play in Sleep Mode" option in the upper right. If you turn this on, you can listen to the tracks with your headphones even when your Nintendo 3DS is closed. The L and R Buttons will let you skip tracks. This means you can use it as a portable music player. Enjoy listening to the tracks you love by putting all songs in loop, shuffle, or selecting your favorite tracks!!


Sakurai-san was fairly busy last week, then; let us know which are your favourites in the poll and comments below.
